What principles in teaching-learning were commonly applied?

The Teacher started the class by fixing skills. She asked the students to give a recapitulation of the previous lesson. Further, she gave recent update of the contemporary development of the lesson.

She gives the generalization and asks the students to give particular examples or to expound the concept according to their own opinion or
experience. She encouraged participation in the class. She welcomed all ideas correcting them without necessarily telling them they were wrong but by improving their ideas.

She also asked students to corroborate ideas of other students thus, exercising collaborative learning among the learners.

 What instructional materials were used in teaching?

The teacher made use of the textbook. She refers to the textbook for the main concept and asks the students to expound on the topic being discussed.

Which of the principles in teaching facilitate the cognitive, metacognitive and positive motivational processes of learning?

The Teacher allows cognitive learning by allowing students to read from the textbook. However, it does not end in reading alone. She goes higher to mere reading or memorization by asking them how the concepts are practiced in real life by the people around them or by themselves. She also gives specific situations and asks the students what they would do if confronted with such situations. She motivates the students by encouraging them to recite or asking them if they have a previous knowledge regarding the topic.

The group has assembled. We were ready to go at Tocucan National High School. The group was growing impatient. The public utility jeepney bound for Tocucan has already left. We have talked to a few tricycle drivers but the jeepney hire way quite high. Then, a driver from Tocucan passed by and saw one of our groupmates who is also from their place. He was on his way home so he gave us a ride.

I have not walked for long. My only route was Caluttit and the College. I was expecting that I would be left behind. Fortunately, my legs did not fail me; and more, I did quite well. I expected it would cost me great effort, but to the surprise of everyone, I was one of the firsts to arrive at the school.

We stayed at the “kubo” for a while. We asked one of our groupmates to go talk to the Head Teacher because he was the one who delivered the letter. However, we throught it better if we would all go. We were warmly welcomed by the Faculty members. The Head Teacher asked us to go up the library because it has a wider space. We saw some students busy surfing the internet in the computer and they offered us seats.

The Head Teacher told us that we could not be accommodated this day because the school is busy preparing and practicing for the upcoming Variety Show on December 21, 2012. The group asked when is the best time the group could go back for observation. He said January 08, 2013 is a good day. He also advised us that we should have followed up the letter to which we sincerely apologized.

We had to re-route on our way back. People are beginning to crowd in the way we passed by earlier because a family butchered a pig. We passed by the house of two of our groupmates who live in the place. This day has also been an opportunity for the group to get to know each other more. We were laughing out loud even on our way home while riding at the back of a pick up a good fellow allowed us to join on their way to Bontoc.

I have learned a lot this day. I’ve learned that having a positive outlook is good. Everyone was quite hesitant to go to the faculty quite embarrassed to meet and talk with the teachers. It ended that the Teachers we were quite hesitant to meet were very hospitable. I’ve also learned that sometimes things need to be pushed. Transactions should always be followed through. Most importantly, I’ve proven that “first impressions do not always last.” I guess sometimes, it’s the second impression that makes an imprint. I’ve had my impressions of some of my groupmates. I’ve proven that they are not just good, they’re much better.
