CERVANTES, Ilocos Sur – Cervantes National High School (CNHS) teachers continue addressing and upgrading their skills to ensure student learning in the transition under the new normal through another Learning Action Cell (LAC) session held at the CNHS covered court on December 16, 2020.
The session focused on a review of the implementation of distance learning modalities; the interim guidelines for assessment and grading in light of the basic education learning continuity plan; teachers’ development needs reflected in the Individual Performance Commitment and Review Form (IPCRF); and Most Essential Competencies (MELCs)-based for the second quarter planning for distance Learning Delivery Modalities (LDM).
The activity was led by school head Carlito T. Iligan who spoke on the school’s implementation of distance learning modalities and teachers’ development needs reflected in the IPCRF.
Mary Jane Daproza, Jean O. Jauod and Globyl M. Mendoza, all from the said school, were also the speakers during the day.
Daproza focused on the interim guidelines for assessment and grading in light of the basic education learning continuity plan based on DepEd Order no. 31, s. 2020, ensuring teaching and learning continuity while looking after health, safety, and wellbeing of all learners and personnel in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The best learning from the session was becoming aware of the trends in the new normal provided by the Self-Learning Modules (SLMs) as an alternative learning modality offered for the various types of learners in the school. It at least ensures learners access to quality basic education amidst this no face-to-face prohibition due to the public health situation,” teacher-participant Jackielyn Balag-ey said.
Based on the Department of Education school calendar for the School Year (SY) 2020-2021, the annual learning and development activity for teachers and staff is to help them update their knowledge, skills and competencies.
