I am a teacher from Macabud NHS in Rodriguez, Rizal. I'm a mathematics major but teaching MAPEH G7. Although i attend a seminar for G7 but it was very hard for me to adjust in this subject. Can you please give some hints or guide in making lesson plan and Periodical Test construction. What type of question should i used for the 4 facets of understanding, my principal told us that the type of question should be base on the 4 facets of understanding. I hope that you can help me in my problem.

I'm following your blog ilovepink1078, and it helps me a lot in my lessons, thanks for all your post in MAPEH homepage.

I am hoping for your response, thanks again

I think it is really important for seventh graders to be taught coverages like Manang Biday. In our modern generation, the most common way to court a lady is through text or Facebook, which I think is really insincere. I am grateful to have been taught this lesson since I actually got an idea on how men treated women in the old times; with respect and sincerity. It is also really significant to have this as a part of the curriculum so as to show boys the proper and right way to get a woman's heart.
