|NISMED Caravan goes to Palo, LeyteTo help build the capacity of teachers in conducting science and mathematics lessons, UP NISMED reaches out to various schools in the provinces through a professional development program called Caravan for Elementary and Secondary School Science and Mathematics Teachers. For the first caravan of this year, a team of specialists from UP NISMED consisting of two mathematics educators and four science educators conducted training sessions in Palo–one of the many municipalities of Leyte that suffered great devastation due to Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) in November 2013.
Ninety-two teachers from different schools of two districts in Palo participated in a series of sessions on January 29, 2015. The program was designed to train three groups of teacher-participants: (1) high school mathematics teachers, (2) high school science teachers, and (3) elementary school science teachers. Thirty-one high school mathematics teachers attended sessions in algebra and statistics and were given copies of a mathematics sourcebook. Twenty-nine high school science teachers attended sessions on both life and earth sciences. They were given copies of a sourcebook for biology as well as earth science textbooks with accompanying teacher’s guides. Thirty-two elementary school teachers attended a lesson on development of assessment items for grade school students and were also provided with a book on elementary science assessment items.
The caravan is a collaboration between UP NISMED, the Department of Education, and the Metrobank Foundation, as part of UP NISMED 50th anniversary celebration. Next month, NISMED will bring the caravan to schools in Quezon and Bohol.
