Friday, February 22, 2013
LEARNING modules that teach students the lessons of Edsa will debut in all public elementary and secondary schools nationwide this week as the Department of Education’s (DepEd) contribution to the 27th commemoration of the People Power Revolution.
Education Secretary Br. Armin A. Luistro said it is important that the lessons of the critical markers in Philippine history are not lost in generations of Filipino.
The Edsa People Power modules were developed by the National Educators Academy of the Philippines of DepEd in response to Presidential Proclamation No. 224 which mandates the commemoration of Edsa People Power Revolution.
The modules for elementary pupils and high school students will be introduced by teachers from February 17 to 23.
Luistro said that learners must be able to understand this critical phase in our country’s history so that people will be able to generate ideas on how we can work together for a better country.
The module, which is incorporated under the subject Araling Panlipunan, aims to highlight the importance of learning the lessons of history and in preserving the gains of democracy.
“Equally important, we want our young to protect our sovereignty and uphold freedom and justice at all times,” Luistro added. (PR)
