Teachers’ Note

Social Studies teachers, just like teachers of other RNV subjects, must understand that their role in the class is much more than making the pupils to simply know and able to list the merits and demerit of negative and positive attitude to work. S/he is a mind changer, a motivator, a patriot and an ardent promoter of patriotism. Especially at this moment of moral decadence when “the popular is seen as the right” and indigenous national values are being defaced; the teacher enjoys the duty of re-orienting the pupils in his/her classes.

Note: [1] prior to explaining the duties of the various agencies given above, the teacher may ask the contributions of the pupils.

If any, the teacher may ask questions such as the name of the agency and the work such parent/relation performs.

For example, the teacher picks the police uniform, then asks whether any of the pupils’ parent/relation uses that uniform. If any, the teacher asks the pupil the name that persons such as that his /her parent/relation is called. Thereafter, the teacher may ask the pupil or the class what works such people perform.
