by Dr. Johara D. Alangca-Azis, Special Assistant, OVCAAUniversity
To enhance the senior high school teachers’ capability towards effective implementation of the K-12 enhanced basic education program (EBEP) and to give every student an opportunity to acquire quality education based on enhanced and decongested curriculum that meets international standards, the MSU Main Campus conducted a three-day echo training-seminar on Senior High School (SHS) Curriculum Content and Strategies for SHS Teachers with the theme “Capacitating SHS Teachers Towards Enhancing the Quality of Basic Education in the Philippines.” The training was attended by all the Deans, Asst. Deans, Chairperson and faculty members directly involved in the SHS implementation, namely, the College of Education, CSPEAR, CNSM, CHARM, CSSH, Engineering Technology, CBA, College of Fisheries, College of Agriculture, CIT, among others. Said training aimed to develop a curriculum that is rational and focused on excellence in order to produce a pool of highly qualified and trained teachers for the SHS curriculum. SHS covers the last two years of the K to 12 program, specifically Grades 11 and 12, where students will go through a core curriculum and subjects under a track of their choice.
Most of the speakers were faculty members of MSU Main Campus who were sent by the University Leadership to attend the Senior High School Training at Mindanao University of Science and Technology (MUST), Cagayan de Oro City on May 29-June1, 2016, namely, Prof. Melbar M. Angri, MSU-UTC Principal and SHS Asst. Director (SHS Curriculum); Dr. Johara D. Alangca-Azis, OVCAA Special Assistant (Policy Guidelines on Daily Lesson Preparation for the K to 12 Basic Education Program); Prof. Arnold Asotigue, OVPAA Special Assistant (Classroom Assessment and Grading System); Prof. Cesar Delfinado, Faculty, Filipino Department (Learner Centeredness); Prof. Jeffry Montejar, Faculty, CIT, (21st Century Learning); Dr. Montia D. Sarip, Dean, College of Education (Differentiated Instruction and Other Learning Strategies); and Prof. Nurhayna Eryll Madali, Faculty, College of Education (Outcomes-Based Education in SHS Curriculum).
It must be noted that, SHS, as part of the K to 12 Basic Curriculum, was developed in line with the curriculum of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), the governing body for college and university education in the Philippines. This ensures that by the time the student graduate from SHS, they will have the standard knowledge skills and competencies needed to go to college or become a part of a workforce which meets the average skills-set required by the industry.
For the efficient implementation of the SHS program, the following officers were elected for SY 2016-2017, namely, Dr. Shamseda A. Tabao, Director; Prof. Melba M. Angni, Asst. Director, Mr. Arthur Palagawad, Registrar; Prof. Amenoding Limpao, HUMSS Chairperson; Prof. Anna Mitos J. Dizon, ABM Chairperson; Prof. Husna A. Dimalapao, STEM; Prof. Michelle M. Layao, Sports Track Chairperson; Prof. Casan Mala, TVL Track Coordinator; Prof. Cora M. Palagawad, Guidance Counselor.
