Daily Lesson Log (DLL

Complete Guide in Preparing a Daily Lesson Log (DLL)


K-12 Daily Lesson Log guidelines for daily lesson preparation was hereby issued by DepEd to institutionalize instructional planning as a critical part of the teaching and learning process in public schools. These guidelines are meant to support teachers in effectively organizing and managing K to 12 classrooms to be genuinely responsive to learners’ needs.

These guidelines in the preparation of K-12 Daily Lesson Log shall instill reflective practice among teachers by providing them opportunities to think about and reflect on their instructional practices. K-12 Daily Lesson Log preparation is part of the teacher’s core function as a facilitator of learning inside the classroom. Well-prepared and well-planned lessons are fundamental to ensuring the delivery of quality teaching and learning in schools.

Daily Lesson Log (DLL) is a template teachers use to log parts of their daily lesson. The Daily Lesson Log covers a day’s or a week’s worth of lessons.

Parts of a K-12 Daily Lesson Log (DLL) 

1. Objectives 
This part of the DLL includes objectives related to content knowledge and competencies. Lesson objectives describe the “kinds of content knowledge and processes teachers hope their students will learn from instruction. The lesson objectives describe the behavior or performance teachers want learners to exhibit in order to consider them competent. The objectives state what the teacher intends to teach and serve as a guide for instruction and assessment. The content standards refer to the learning area-based facts, concepts, and procedures that students need to learn, while the competencies pertain to the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that students need to demonstrate in a lesson. The competency codes are also logged in this part of the DLL.

2. Content 
The topic or subject matter pertains to the particular content that the lesson focuses on.
3. Learning Resources 
This part of the DLL asks teachers to log the references and other learning resources that the teacher will use for the lesson. The references include the particular pages of the TG, LM, textbook, and the additional materials from the LRMDS portal. The other learning resources refer to materials such as those that are teacher-made, authentic, and others not included in the references. This part of the DLL can also include the supplies, equipment, tools and other non-print materials needed for activities before, during, and after the lesson.

4. Procedures 
This part of the DLL contains ten (10) parts including: 
a) reviewing previous lesson/s or presenting the new lesson. 
b) establishing a purpose for the lesson will motivate the learner to learn the new lesson. 
c) presenting examples/instances of the new shows instances of the content and competencies. 
d) discussing new concepts leads to the first formative assessment. 
e) continuation of the discussion of new concepts leading to the second formative assessment that deepens the lesson and shows learners new ways of applying learning. 
f) developing mastery, which leads to the third formative assessment, can be done through more individual work activities such as writing, creative ways of representing learning, dramatizing, etc. 
g) finding practical applications of concepts and skills in daily living which can develop appreciation and valuing for students’ learning by bridging the lesson to daily living. 
h) making generalizations and abstractions about the lesson will conclude the lesson by asking learners good questions that will help them crystallize their learning so they can declare knowledge and demonstrate their skills; 
i) evaluating learning is a way of assessing the learners and whether the learning objectives have been met. 
j) additional activities for application or remediation will be based on the formative assessments and will provide children with enrichment or remedial activities.

Flexibility is allowed in the delivery of the DLL procedures. Teachers do not need to go through all ten (10) parts in every lesson. Teachers need to ensure that the procedures of the lesson lead to the achievement of the stated objectives. The formative assessment methods to be used by the teacher should determine if the objectives of the lesson are being met. These ten parts should be done across the week.

5. Remarks 
This is a part of the DLL in which teachers shall indicate special cases including but not limited to continuation of lesson plan to the following day in case of re-teaching or lack of time, transfer of lesson to the following day in cases of class suspension, etc.

6. Reflection. 
This part of the DLL requires teachers to reflect on and assess their effectiveness. In this part of the DLL, the teacher should make notes on the number of learners who earned 80% in the evaluation, the number of learners who require additional activities for remediation and those who continue to require remediation, the effectiveness of the remedial lesson, the teaching strategies or methods that worked well and why, and the difficulties teachers encountered that their principal or supervisor can help solve.

As a DepEd guideline, teachers with at least one (1) year of teaching experience, including teachers with private school and higher education institution (HEI) teaching experience, shall not be required to make a Detailed Lesson Plan (DLP). Teachers who have been in the service for at least one (1) year, handling learning areas with available LMs and TGs provided by the Department shall not be required to prepare a DLP . Instead, they shall be required to fill out a weekly K-12 Daily Lesson Log (DLL). Teachers are allowed to work together in preparing DLLs. Seasoned or veteran teachers shall also mentor new or novice teachers in the preparation of DLLs.
