Identified training centers in the region for the Grade 7 level will be with their partner Teacher Education Institutions (TEIs) such as the Cebu Normal University (CNU) and the Cebu Technnological University (CTU) in Cebu Citry, while the Grade 1 level trainers training will take place at different divisionâ€™s training centers, added the DepEd official.
The breakdown of the 369 Grade 7 teachers with the corresponding areas of specialization are: 56 in Science; 41 in Music, Arts, Physical Education & Health (MAPEH); 61 in Math; 56 in English; 30 in Filipino/Applied Nutrition; 27 in Values; 30 in Araling Panlipunan; and 68 in Technology and Livelihood Education (TLE) subjects.
The DepEd official said that the revised curriculum will also be introduced to incoming high school freshmen or the Grade 7 students this school year.
Based on the curriculum guide, Grade 7 will have the same subjects as in Grade 1, minus the Mother Tongue subject, since this will be offered from Grades 1 to 3 only.
The high school freshmen on the other hand, will have the Technology and Livelihood Education (TLE) subject, which will offer various skills-enhancing topics for the entire high school level, this is said.
Cabantan added the K to 12 Program will add two more years in the high school level. The additional two-years will offer students subjects or electives that will offer specialization skills depending on the occupation or career track the students wish to pursue.
The DepEd 7 official, however, said that the incoming 2nd to 4th year high school students will not be included in the additional two years. (FCR/JSME/PIA 7-Cebu)
