Who among us never experience physical, emotional, mental or social abuse from our classmates or peers?

Luckily , some of us were able to surpass that stage but there were still who are being traumatized of these bullies.

How To Teach Basic Conversational English

Jun 6, 2013 Author: Teacher Leann C. Luna | Filed under: Essay on Education

In the conversational English lesson, the first rule, especially at the basic level, is to keep things simple, and to keep things at a level that a person would already know in their own language. So, the most basic topic is going to be personal information.

When you’re teaching your students English, the first thing that they’ll need to know is how to introduce themselves and how to react when people ask them things like what’s your name, where do you come from, what country do you live in, things like this. So, personal information, which they already know in their own language, will be the easiest thing for them to explain and to say in English.

May 24, 2013 Author: Teacher Anabelle C. Bagtas | Filed under: Essay on Education

The Department of Education (DepEd) have formally implemented K-12 Program since last school year which as everybody knew aims to have an additional two more years of basic education in the country. On its second year, all the grade two teachers in elementary and grade eight teachers in high school were required to attend a five – day training. This is the continuation of the training which was attended by the grade one and grade seven teachers last year. The training for all grade levels is expected to finish in 2017 wherein the old curriculum from grades one to twelve will be totally replaced by K-12 Curriculum.

But after a year and up to this day, parents are still commenting and asking so many questions as if K-12 is a new program. “ Is K-12 really needed and necessary? Is the additional two years the answer to the emerging problems in our country? “Why not invest on teachers’ education and on their salary to be able to hire competent ones instead of adding two more years?” These are the same questions asked several times especially by the parents. Some believe, simply adding two more years in the education of a child does not guaranty that the child will have the skills they hope to achieve. (more…)

Mar 30, 2013 Author: Teacher Ruvirosa B. Felipe | Filed under: Essay on Education

Teachers were only given 20 to 30 minutes allotment everyday in teaching Values Education.

Aug 30, 2012 Author: Teacher Jane L. Ringor | Filed under: Beyond the Classroom, Essay on Education

We are experiencing today a state of moral corruption. This is evident in the kind of governance our state leadership is tucked in – a leadership that has caused and continues to cause a rift among the members of the populace. If we are to make an assessment, each person goes his own way, being torn apart by personal ideologies and personal advancement, empty of common interest. Gone are the days, when the flow of life was unbridled by confusion, by turmoil and economic dislocation. Where have all the values gone?

Sizing up the state of the nation’s values today, the trend has been going negative. Today we are rocked in the fabric of illicit acts ranging from hypocrisy, dishonesty, greed, and all other things vicious, bringing the country’s setup into a state of degradation, veering away from the positive values that were once the glories of the good old days. But how should these values return? (more…)

Instilling Good Moral Foundation among our Learners

Aug 4, 2012 Author: Teacher Alma V. Signio | Filed under: Essay on Education, Teachers Essay for Kids

Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child the way he should go so when he is old he will not depart from it.” This verse pointed out not only the parent’s role in molding a child but it also connotes challenge to teachers by guiding and bringing out the best in every human being.

Since children have varied needs, both the parents and teachers must guide them differently.
