2015 Division Caravan of Best Practices in Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao
The first Division Caravan of Best Practices in Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao (Elementary Level) was held in the Conference Hall of the Division on October 20, 2015. It was attended by Grade IV teachers teaching EsP subject in their respective schools.
The program started with a Song for the Lord rendered by the selected pupils of Pedro Cruz Elementary School and it was followed by the singing of the Philippine National Anthem with Mrs. Lourdes Victoria M. Claor of Nicanor Ibuna Elementary School, conducting. The NCR Hymn and San Juan Hymn was conducted by Dr. Susana S. Luceño, Education Program Supervisor in MSEP.
And to inspire the participants specially the four demonstration teachers, a heartwarming message was given by Dr. Jenilyn Rose B. Corpuz, OIC-Office of the Schools Division Superintendent.
The Regional Values Education Supervisor, Dr. Rowena S. Ontangco graced the event. She mentioned in her message that Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao should be taught seriously and properly to instill positive values among our learners who are vulnerable to common social problems such as bullying, early pregnancy, drug addiction, school drop-outs among others. She also challenged the teachers to become role model of the school children.
The Education Program Supervisor in Guidance and Values Education, Dr. Emma A. Sendiong introduced the four courageous teachers who accepted the challenge of sharing their expertise and showing best practices in teaching the subject Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao and they are as follows; Mrs. Geraldine D. Sullano-Pinaglabanan Elementary School, Ms. Pamela S. Porciuncula-San Perfecto Elementary School, Ms. Maria Magdalena T. Elape-Sta. Lucia Elementary School and Mrs. Jennifer S. De Lemos-Salapan Elementary School.
The four teachers followed the 4 A’s approach in teaching their lesson. The objective of their lesson was about the material and non-material cultural heritage of the past such as clothing, food, folktale, games and songs.
One of the highlights of the demonstration teaching was the utilization of the ICT in delivering their lessons that perked up curiosity and motivated the pupils to participate more actively during the two-hour activity.
Right after the demonstration teaching, the four teachers received their hardly-earned certificates in the presence of Dr. Ontangco, Dr. Corpuz, Division EPS and School Heads.
The post-conference was spearheaded by Dr. Emma A. Sendiong. She called the four women of the hour to seat in the middle to get ready for the moment of truth and that was the processing and evaluating their teaching performance under the helm of the selected Education Program Supervisors and School Heads as well. Each one gave some pointers and suggestions on how to improve further their teaching styles for the benefit of their learners.
One of the objectives of the Division Caravan of Best Practices in Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao is to introduce new innovations in methods, approaches and techniques for quality teaching and learning.
