Abstract

This study aims to describe the similarities and differences between Indonesian and Filipino English curricula and other special characteristics of the two countries in the ninth grade of junior high school. The comparative case research was conducted in two schools, namely SMP Frater Don Bosco Tarakan and SMA Terpadu PSU which were selected purposively as samples. The data obtained from classroom observations, interviews, and related documents were analyzed qualitatively using concurrent analysis (data sorting, presentation, and conclusion drawing). The Indonesian and Philippine curricula have similarities in terms of aims, objectives, pedagogical standards, and evaluation standards, but differ in learning objects. Some of the specific characteristics of both curriculum practices are taking advantage of today's advanced technology, building responsibility among students, evaluating student attitudes authentically, and moving away from judging academic achievement based on exaggerated grades.
