A seven-day mass training on the implementation of the K-12 Basic Education Program was conducted at Sorosoro, Batangas City on May 7-13.

The said training was initiated through the tireless effort of Ludy N. Pasagui – OIC, Schools Division Superintendent, Homer N. Medoza – OIC, Assistant Schools Division Superintendent and Minerva C. Caraos, Chief Education Supervisor, School Governance and Operations Division (SGOD).

Composed of 171 public school teacher participants all from Grade 6, the training aimed to provide teachers with concrete understanding of the curriculum framework, learning standards and competencies, pedagogy, teaching plans, and assessment.

Participants were equipped with knowledge and skills necessary to overcome challenges that they will face in the incoming school year 2017-2018. The topics emphasized in Curriculum Frameworks, Learning Standards and Competencies in different Learning Areas, Pedagogical Approaches, Preparations of Daily Lesson Logs and Daily Lesson Plans, Assessment, Reading Remediation, Arts of Questioning, Differentiated Instruction, and Explicit Teaching.

The training made the participants mindful and fully understand the new curriculum. As Dr. Ludy N. Pasagui highlighted in her inspiring message, “It is expected that updates on competencies and standards are served among teachers, but let us at all time safeguard our health during trainings and enjoy each moment.” (Evelyn F.
