Teachers undergo folk dance training
by Daisy A. Juan

A four-day training on Music, Arts, Physical Education and Health (MAPEH) District Trainers on Basic Concepts and Fundamentals in Teaching Folk Dances and Performance Standards was recently held in La Trinidad, Benguet.

The first batch of participants trained from April 18 to 21 was composed of 28 elementary teachers, 14 secondary teachers, and 14 MAPEH district coordinators from Atok, Itogon I, Itogon II, Kibungan, La Trinidad, Tuba, and Tublay while the second batch which took the training from April 23 to 26 were from the districts of Bakun, Buguias, Bokod, Kabayan, Kapangan, Mankayan, and Sablan.

Warden A. Baltazar, one of the education program supervisors and MAPEH coordinator of Benguet Division, said the training is in accordance with the K to 12 Curriculum Guide for Physical Education for grades 1 to 10.

Ursula L. Balao, master teacher I of Governor Bado Dangwa Agro-Industrial School introduced Philippine folk dances.

Mildred A. Tuazon, Ampusongan National High School principal, presented the music terms and rhythmic patterns in teaching dances.

Maureen Jane O. Bandoc and Edita M. Docayso, both Physical Education and Health teachers from Saint Louis University in Baguio City, were invited to demonstrate some dance step patterns.

The participants also interpreted and executed several dance terms which were later critiqued.

The participants also progressively interpreted the figures of a folk dance based on its dance literature.

Robert Lorenzo, a teacher at Puguis Elementary School, La Trinidad, Benguet, demonstrated teaching using the new daily lesson log format in teaching based on DepEd Order 42, s. 2017 while Ursula Balao handled the secondary level.

Baltazar pointed out that one of the best methods in teaching dances is through explicit teaching where the teacher demonstrates, everybody will perform, then the learners themselves are going to perform.

He added that the trained teachers are expected to echo in their own districts.

An amount of P118,000 from the Schools Division Office’s maintenance and other operating expenses fund and a portion from the Indigenous People Education fund was allocated for the training.
