The Role of the School in Values Formation

Jul 17, 2012 | Published by: Teacher Edna G. Reñosa

All of us often encounter confusion about our values. But for our kid’s today, conflicts on values are more acute. With these, how can they learn to live decently and with integrity when the world surrounding him is full of conflict. Thus, the school must give importance in the values formation of each learner because next to the church and the home, the school is served as an influential institution in molding the attitudes of a person.

School must then offer relevant experiences and curriculum to their learners that they would be able to face the challenges and realities of life. Schools must focus on providing not only the best education to their pupils but the best training and the best formation to their pupils. Yet at present, most schools are centered in just giving head knowledge to their learners and often set aside the values formation of their pupils. Read the rest of this entry »

Reading Skill: A Must To All

Jul 14, 2012 | Published by: Teacher Asuncion B. Reyes

One of the most crucial skills that have to be developed in the individual’s initial stage of formal education in reading.

The nature of present day life is such that a person can hardly exist without being able to read. Everybody knows that reading is the primary avenue to knowledge. One must forever learn more and reason more. Reading helps to accomplish this. It is the most important task of learning and all lessons in school need reading. A pupil who loves to read well becomes independent, well informed and eventually becomes a better citizen. Success in reading therefore, is success in school, and in future life.

Reading is the most important subject to be learned by children. Children will learn little in today’s world if they do not first learn to read properly. Surveys show that non or poor readers become the delinquent, the unemployed or the misfit in the society.

Becoming a Good Teacher in the Modern World

Jul 13, 2012 | Published by: Teacher Marilyn C. Abella

In our modern technological world, one would think if there are still dedicated and committed teachers because most of us are advancing in so many things and in so many ways but sad to say not in terms of values. Based on  recent studies, teachers today lose their passion in teaching and some of them were unsuited in personality resulting to unsatisfactory learning outcomes.

Our modern world must bring challenges to our educators that they need to become good and inspiring teachers who will make an impact not only in the community but above all, in the lives of the youth, the hope of our country. Teachers today must learn how to motivate their learners regarding the important roles that they play in the condition of our present government. We also need innovative and creative teachers who can provide quality education to our pupils.

Though a lot of advances are seen around, teachers must remain the same, armed with “Passion” and “Mission” of educating and transforming lives.

Multiple Nutrient Deficiencies among School Age Children

Jul 12, 2012 | Published by: Teacher Jovelyn Saldaña

Most parents and even teachers know how difficult it can be to get their children to eat healthy food, and it is so vital that they do.

Research has shown that most school children are deficient in at least one vitamin or mineral, and many have multiple deficiencies. Most preschool children do not meet the RNI (Recommended Nutritional Intake) for zinc.

One of the problems encountered was that when children (and adults, of course) are deficient in zinc, they have low-functioning taste buds and very little sense of taste or smell, so they want strong-tasting foods, i.e. strong tasting junk food. Healthy food does not taste nice enough. It takes a while to get children to change their taste buds. Read the rest of this entry »

Mother Tongue Teaching

Jul 12, 2012 | Published by: Teacher Cherry Collera

The Department of Education (DepEd) recently implemented policies in utilizing one’s mother tongue as the medium of instruction. The agency had decided to pursue with such guidelines to be able to harmonize and reorganize the production of indigenized teaching and learning materials. They will also conduct monitoring and evaluation of the DepEd’s mother tongue-based multilingual education (MTB-MLE). By this means, children will easily learn and enter the unfamiliar world of school learning.

The MTB-MLE program will definitely provide a link between home and school.

This program will be implemented from preschool up to Grade 3 and in the alternative learning system.
