In line with the implementation of Republic act No. 10533, the Department of Education issues the policy on the Learning Action Cell (LAC) as a K to 12 Basic Education Program School-Based Continuing Professional Development Strategy for the Improvement of Teaching and Learning. LAC is supported by DepEd Order No. 35, series of 2016.
Seizing this opportunity, therefore Pasali Philippines Foundation offers its effort thru a 3-hour session on Creativity on Education every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month. This session combines topics such as Respect Methodologies, Tools of a Teacher, Elements of Artistic Expression, Rules of Improvisation, Integrated Theater Arts, and Creative Lesson Planning. Its aim is to allow the teachers appreciate the use of creative and culture-based teaching strategies in the classroom. This is done by coming up with creative lesson plans integrating Respect Education methodologies while utilizing appropriate group dynamics and exercises in different subjects.
As the process goes, the facilitators conduct the activity creatively with much of exercises that can be used also by the teachers in their daily teaching. The bottom end of this activity is to persuade the teachers to become innovative in their teaching approaches where each child feels safe, accepted, and able to partake in a wholesome and rewarding learning environment.
In addition, the activity is school-based in nature and is being implemented in the recipient schools of the Respect Education Program primarily with its 10 focused schools in Palimbang (6 schools), General Santos (2 schools) and Maasim and Malungon, Sarangani Province (1 school each). It started last September 23, 2016 and is still currently to more schools due to the requests of the School Heads and teachers.
