The Department of Education (DepEd) has set to train all second year high school teachers in Negros Oriental on secondary education curriculum using the so-called Understanding by Design (UBD) approach.
DepEd Information Officer Erlinda Calumpang said the orientation-training is scheduled on June 2-3 after some 90 teachers have completed recently the training in Cebu City.
The training-workshop will consist of break-away sessions by subject areas and micro teaching demonstrations using the “ubedized” teaching guides, said Calumpang.
In order to ensure curriculum implementation, subject teachers will be identified based on the eight learning areas, namely English Filipino, Science, Mathematics, Araling Panlipunan, Values Education, MAPEH and TLE.
Calumpang said teachers from the municipality of Basay to Canlaon City will gather at the identified four venues depending on their area of teaching; for English teachers at Negros Oriental High School (NOHS), Filipino and Science at Dauin National High School, for Mathematics and Araling Panlipunan, Valencia High School, Values Education, Technology and Livelihood Education (TLE), and Music, Arts, Physical Education and Health (MAPEH) at Sibulan National High School.
This province-wide training prepares the subject teachers in the Second Year level before school year 2011-2012 starts in June.
The training sets up for the second year of implementation of the new curriculum to improve classroom teaching-learning process and eventually hasten the academic advancement of secondary school children, DepEd official said.
The use of “ubedized” guide upgrades the standard of learning and education in the country as part of the country’s commitment in meeting the targets of the Millennium Development Goals.
