As building literacy is our collective responsibility, so too is improving of our schools, our collective responsibility. We must build bridges between the school and the community.” Former DepEd Secretary Florencio Abad

Give at least 5 resources in the community where your school is located. 2. Where does the community gets its financial resources? 3. Do you think the community has rich financial resources? Why? 4. What are the rules/norms and traditions practiced by the community that help the school attain its objectives?
  6. 6. Below are community norms/traditions/practices that contribute to the attainment of specific goals of a school. Identify additional practices School Goals/Objectives Community Practices/norms/traditions that can held reach the objective To raise the academic achievement of the pupils Example: Honor graduates are looked up to in the community Your own example: ________________ To prepare school for the opening of classes Example: Bayanihan/Brigada Eskwela Example: ________________ To maintain school cleanliness throughout the SY Example: Clean and Green movement Your own example:______________ To provide security Example: Pagroronda ng mga Brgy tanod
  7. 7. Every community has resources that surround the school. These can be:  Human  Social  Material  Financial  Natural resources Human resources – refer to the skills, talents, qualities and attitudes of the people living in the community
  8. 8. Social assets – the relationships, rules, established course of action, and practices that can serve as instruments in attaining specific school goals in a given situation Material resources – man made things such as equipment, property, facilities, tools, and the like which can be used by the community anytime Financial assets – monetary, income or cash resources Natural resources – refer to the physical environment of the community Teachers who are skillful in tapping these resources have the power to break the cycle of financial difficulties of the school.
  9. 9. “Learning and the areas to be learned should not have boundaries. Education, as a public property, should belong everyone, not just the academically successful but also those who have wisdom outside the school.” Sayer and Williams, 1989
  10. 10. Tapping community resources Pupils learn through discussion, simulation, reading, writing, field trips, listening speakers, etc. These are common activities inside the classroom when a teacher is teaching a lesson. There are also lessons that can be effectively taught and learned by going to the community and observing, asking experts and actively participating in, or even initiating, community activities (Lardizabal, 1988).
  11. 11. Go over this table that lists down lessons which can involve the community: Lessons Learning Method Utilizing Community resources Justice Simulation of a court proceeding Health (Alternative Medicines) Interviewing local healers about their herbal medicines Peace and Order Visiting barangay headquarters or police precinct Entrepreneurship Interviewing local businessman Environmental Joining the clean and green protection Descriptive Writing Writing descriptions of the scenic spots in the community
  12. 12. Think of some more lessons in your subject area. Tell whether they can be effectively learned in school or in the community. Identify a community resource that can be tapped to help you teach a lesson that you believe is best learned in a community, and how it will be done.
  13. 13. Tapping community members in teaching the pupils Community members maybe tapped in the education of our pupils. Lessons in history, geography, social studies, and values maybe learned from community members. Below are the suggested ways by which we can tap community members in teaching our pupils : a. Organizing field trips so students can learn from community members in their institutional setting b. Inviting community members to come to school to serve as resource persons/lecturers/demonstrators c. Involving parents directly or indirectly in the learning process
  14. 14. Community expectations of the teachers Teachers play various roles beyond the boundaries of the school. Local communities from the school turn o teachers for a lot of their needs. They expect teachers to perform other functions besides teaching. They act as: a. Agents of change (making people understand and observe policies, programs, and DepEd & govt programs) b. Legal counsel (informing/advising community of actions/decisions to make based on the country’s laws and that of DepEd c. Person in authority (knowing & exercising authority with regard to students’ discipline & working relationships with others based on existing laws and DepEd Orders) d. Source of knowledge (knowing current events/issues; ability to share information with others)

Lopez ES noticed that one of her pupils was unusually quiet, and hardly recited in class. She would not participate in group activities and seldom interacted with her classmates. The teacher noticed also that she was untidy and shabbily dressed. She was habitually absent. So she talked to her and asked her if she had a problem. The pupil hesitated but after some prodding, she confided her problem which shocked the teacher – the girl was sexually harassed by her own father. 1. In caselet A the teacher is expected to be____________.
  16. 16. Caselet B The Brgy Chairman of Brgy Poblacion 2 wanted to initiate an information campaign about illegal drugs. But he and his councilmen lacked the knowledge and resources to do the campaign. To help them, they asked one of the teachers in Brgy Poblacion 2 to help them do the information campaign. What role must the teacher assume in caselet B
  17. 17. Caselet C Mr. Buenafe was informed by one of his pupils that a fraternity initiation was being conducted at an abandoned building within the school vicinity. He hurriedly went to the alleged place and found that two of his pupils were being initiated. What role must the teacher in caselet C assume? Do you think you can do away with the roles that the community is expecting from you? Why?
  18. 18. The School Partners and Key Stakeholders Quality education is the responsibility of the school and the community, hence it is important that the school and the community must build a partnership in bringing about quality education to all children.

  20. 20. How can the schools foster effective and sustainable partnership with the community? PRODED has enumerated the following areas that teachers must nurture in order to develop an effective and sustainable partnership with the community: 1. develop intelligent public understanding of the school on all aspects of its operations 2. help citizens feel more responsibly for the quality of education the school provides; 3. earn the goodwill, respect and confidence of the public in the professional and personal services of the school 4. involve the community in the work of the school and in solving educational problems

  22. 22. How can schools/teachers effectively coordinate with the community on the use of its resources? 1. cultural sensitivity 2. sincerity/gratitude 3. integrity/honesty/humility 4. follow up 5. good public relations 6. two way communications 7. proper channeling
  23. 23. Harnessing school support from PTA `The PTA is a vital force in linking the school to its service area, the community. The PTA is founded on the spirit of volunteerism and serves as a means by which funds maybe generated and community support to the school maybe mobilized. If properly organized and directed, the PTA can be a strong partner in improving the welfare of the pupils.
  24. 24. Ways by which schools/teachers can use to effectively enlist the support of PTA 1. Home visits -get to know them well. This is the rule of thumb in starting and nurturing relations with parents. Provide time to find out more about the pupils’ home conditions 2. Parenthood seminars -invite parents to attend seminars on parenting, responsible parenthood, child development and proper guidance and connecting -seminars on helping parents help their better help their children in developing good study habits may also be conducted -organize PLAC to help parents develop the skill of guiding their children at home in developing study habits
  25. 25. 3. Parent conferences -should focus on problems related to the child -know the parents very well -tips on conducting parent conferences a. Know the parents personally even before the problem arise b. Have all the relevant information about eh child before the conference c. Inform the parents the purpose of the conference d. Conduct your conference with the parents in a face to face, give and take, no hold barred manner. Create an atmosphere of an informal chat rather than that of a formal meeting
  26. 26. 4. School- home projects -if parents are too busy/occupied to come to attend meetigns and conferences, an alternative is to send home printed maaterials about school/class programs -information should include a brief description of its’ learning areas and the materials the child needs that should be presented in a clear and understandable language
  27. 27. 5. Establish a “Two-way communication “ with parents/community -occurs when teachers and parents dialogue together. Effective dialogue “develops out of a growing trust, a mutuality of concern, and an appreciation of contrasting perspectives” (Lawrence-Lightfoot,2004). A teacher may contact parents to celebrate a child’s successful school experience. -However, more frequently, the contact is to share a concern about the child, which can be a source of significant tension for both teachers and parents alike. Teachers should strive to make these interactions as productive as possible.
  28. 28. Tips in Dealing with Parents 1. Use conversational tone 2. Create an atmosphere of an informal chat rather that that of a confrontation 3. Make more positive than negative comments and suggestions 4. Involve parents in school programs and activities
