MATATAG architects expound curriculum at Fil Dept forum

Architects of MATATAG presented how they developed the Filipino curriculum in a virtual lecture-forum organized by the College of Education’s Departamento ng Filipino last April 25.

The group was led by Gaudencio Luis N. Serrano, LPT, PhD, Supervising Education Program Specialist under the Bureau of Learning Delivery of the Department of Education (DepEd) Central Office.

Serrano explained the Instructional Design Framework of MATATAG Curriculum, following Republic Act No. 10533 or the Enhanced Education Act of 2013.

Rosette V. Comiso-Gallo, LPT, MA, Supervising Education Program Specialist under the Bureau of Curriculum Development of DepEd Central Office, talked about “Dayakronikong Tala sa Paghulma ng MATATAG Filipino Kurikulum.”

She later revealed that teachers from the Filipino Department were part of the consultation phase of the Curriculum Guide for Grade 1-10. Prof. Roberto Ampil, PhD was a consultant for the Learning Area Shaping Paper, while Asst. Prof. Amur Asuncion, EdD was a consultant for Key Stage 3, covering Grade 7 to 10.

Dinalene Castañar-Babac, LPT, MAT, Subject Area Supervisor of Junior High School Filipino at Miriam College and validator of the Curriculum Guide for Key Stage 1 to 3, presented the Standards for Key Stage 1, covering Kinder to Grade 3, Key Stage 2, covering Grade 4 to 6, and Key Stage 6 as mentioned above.

She also discussed the changes made to the MATATAG Filipino curriculum. 

In her Opening Remarks, College of Education Dean Assoc. Prof. Pilar I. Romero, LPT, PhD said that she is optimistic that Filipino will be given importance, not just as a subject, but also as an expression of fervent love for language and nation.

College of Education Pedagogical Lead and Assistant Dean Asst. Prof. Louie B. Dasas, LPT, PhD queried if the road to the development of MATATAG Curriculum is also “matagtag” (bumpy).

The lecture-forum is part of the series of events and activities that led to the 98th Founding Anniversary Fortnight of the college, dubbed as “#EduGREATat98: Gratitude, Resilience, and Excellence Amidst Transitions.”
