Last April 22-24, 2019, a total of 287 elementary teachers from the National Capital Region attended the 2019 Revitalizing Teaching and Learning for Highly Effective K to 6 Classrooms (ReTEACH). The seminar workshop was organized by the Private Education Assistance Committee (PEAC) in partnership with the Catholic Education Association of the Philippines (CEAP).
The training aimed to improve the essential skills of K to 6 teachers in the practice of systematic approaches to curriculum mapping, designing effective learner-centered activities, performance tasks, and standards-based assessment. The training catered to the following clusters: Kinder; Grades 1-3; and Grades 4-6.
The PEAC is accredited by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) as a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Provider. Participants of the trainings, who are licensed teachers, can earn credit units for the renewal of their licenses.
The activity was very timely in light of helping teachers to keep abreast of current trends. It also became a venue in sharing the best practices of the teacher-participants among themselves. Their attendance in this training will help them in creating an effective learning environment, in improving teaching-learning situations, and in being updated on modern instructional devices and in inspiring them to become more effective teachers in the 21st century.
