essentially crucial to the tasks involved in education (Bauzon, 2006). Cabrera (2011) stated that school principals are the primary shapers of school culture because they connect on a daily basis with other teachers, their students, and with parents. The diverse perspectives on instructional practices gained from students and parents provide teachers with rich, ongoing feedback. No school can improve unless it has a culture that supports improvement, collaboration, and a shared vision for what

it wants to achieve. An evaluation system that focuses on collaboration among teachers and principals, reflective practices among teachers, and students’ learning will have a positive effect upon a school’s culture. The following citations excerpted from [email protected] (2012) relates with the some of the features of K to 12 Curriculum Program. The important tasks in formulating a community-based MLE program include the following: conducting preliminary research, mobilizing resources and developing linkages, recruiting and training staff, developing a writing system, developing curriculum and instructional materials, developing literature, evaluating the program and documenting progress, and coordinating the program. Conducting preliminary research involves collecting information that will be used to plan and implement the program, like language attitudes and uses in the community, the community’s goals, needs and problems, and resources for the program. Mobilizing resources and developing linkages involves encouraging a sense of ownership for the program among the stakeholders and encouraging people to work together to support the program. Recruiting and training staff involves identifying the people that will be needed for the program, identifying the qualifications they will need, recruiting them and providing

initial and on-going training for them. Developing a writing system involves identifying the symbols that will form the writing system, or adapting an existing one, which is acceptable to the majority of stakeholders and which promotes ongoing reading and writing in the language. Developing curriculum and instructional materials involves identifying the teaching methods that will be used, developing teacher’s guides, and planning the content of the lessons in the local languages. Developing literature involves writing, illustrating, editing, testing, producing and distributing a variety of graded materials in the local language that are interesting to the readers. Evaluating the program and documenting progress involves assessing the program and the learners’ progress regularly to find out if the program is serving the needs of the community and if you are achieving the program’s objectives. It also involves keeping records of the planning and implementing process and of the learner’s progress. Coordinating the program involves obtaining and allocating funds, keeping records, writing reports, and ensuring that staff care is supervised and supported.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
