    LEGAZPI CITY -- The Bicol Region has pulled off a dramatic drop in its number of poor families.

    The recent regional sur-vey conducted by the De-partment of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) under its National House-hold Targeting System for Poverty Reduction (NHTS-PR), also called Listahanan, noticed this achievement that some local leaders and observers attribute to both natural and man-made in-fl uences.

    The Listahanan survey, done from May to Septem-ber this year, reached a total of 1,056,722 households across all the region's six provinces -- covering seven cities, 107 municipalities and 3,471 barangays.

    If we take the words of the foreign travel and tourism delegates who attended the recent Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) forum in Legazpi last week, Bicol should be bullish on the prospects of a turn-around in its economy.

    The reason reminds us of the usual answer of mountaineers why they climb mountains they are there.

    The tourism resources of Bicol are already here,

    One need not go to Boracay as we have Calaguas.

    One doesnt have to go to Phuket to see those limecliffs and jagged islands jutting out of the ocean, as Caramoan is now just two to three hours road trip from Naga.

    You need some solitary spiritual sojourn take Nagas Pilgrimage route.

    Culture vulture? Try the Mexican baroque faade of Daraga church.

    Needing hot stuff? Why not taste the fiery Bicol Express or trek to Basud and see the protuberant Mt. Susong Dalaga or the phallic Boto ni Curacog in Catanduanes?

    Yes, we all have them here. Except perhaps more government leaders who share the vision of Albay Gov. Joey Salceda and DOT Regional Director Nini Ravanilla that Bicol can be the next big thing in the country, in terms of economy, and that, through tourism.

    We say we need more tourism champion. So we suggest that for the planned Triple C combine, we should have Gov. Araceli Wong of Catanduanes to lead the way Gov. Joey does the Almasor.

    We cant rely on governors whose idea perhaps of tourism is showing their skin or abs on tarps and the social media.

    We need a champ who had seen the potentials of the surf and the waves at Bagasbas and Puraran.

    Atty. TONY (APA) ACYATANyears PEZA growth target of 8%-9% to at least 10%.

    The number of projects registered with PEZA as of end-October rose 2.65% to 503 from 490 during the same period last year. Direct employment generated by these investments likewise jumped 7.97% to1.24 million from last years 1.15 million. Value of products exported from the economic zones, was just at par with the previous years figures as cheaper. light goods comprised the products that were exported abroad.

    ABROAD: Pope Francis (Lolo Kiko) is currently on a three-nation visit to Africa, a trip which shows the Pontiffs concern for the least of his brethren. He carried over his sincere message of love andcompassion to the areas in the African continent where incidence of poverty is at the highest levels.The present pope has successfully shown to the whole world that his brand of Catholicism embraces without exception all Christian believers.

    Meantime, our own president P-Noy is abroad once again after the ASEAN Summit in Kuala

    (Atty. APA chairs Acyatan & Co., CPAs-DFK International is past chair of ASEAN Federation of CPAs, PICPA past president and Hall-of-Famer, and ACPAPP Lifetime Achievement Awardee).

    HIGHER PHIL IMPORTS LATEST: Philippine imports rise for the fourth straight month last September. The imports mainly consisted of raw materials and consumer goods, The Philippine Statistics Authority said total payments for imports increased 6.7% to $6.2 billion last September from $5.8 billion in the same month last year.In the 9-month period of 2015, merchandise imports rose 2.3% to $49.9 billion from $48.8 billion whichwas recorded a year earlier.

    Reasons given for this bright development were the upbeat sentiment from the business sector and an overall improvement in consumer expectations for the coming quarter (including the Yuletide season).To a great extent the very tame inflation rate is encouraging, as people may be able to buy more with the same amount of money they usually have on hand, buoyed up by OFW remittances for Christmas.Importations of capital goods indicate business and industry trust for the days ahead.

    INVESTMENTS: The Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) reported that investments grew by13.2% in the last 10 months. Total investments registered with the Authority surged year-on-year toP174.27 billion as of end-October (2015) on continued investor confidence by manufacturing firms in the country. The upsurge was so encouraging that PEZA director-general Lilia De Lima revised this

    Higher Phil ImportsLumpur. He is now in Paris for the climate change global conference. Our president will speak there to tell the world how we as a nation and as a people with stood the almost successive and regular weather disturbances that hit our country in the last three years. The Filipino expertise in calamity survival and endurance will be highlighted for everyone to understand the true Pinoy nature.

    POLITICS: The entry of Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte in the presidential derby has changed the political landscape. We say that his earlier vacillation was a master stroke, even as he was able to hit his potential adversaries before formally tossing his hat into the ring. First, he refused possible alliance with VP Binay, then he attacked the alleged below the belt campaign of the Liberal Party, and later referred with disdain the citizenship morality of Grace Poe.

    Duterte has divided the voting hearts of the Filipino voters between those who believe that criminality must be eradicated by all means and those who say that regardless of ends the means must be legal and within the law. In the end, violence and bullying tactics should be avoided by our chosen leaders.In our present world the hotheads may win in the beginning, but always in the end, the logic of the law will surely prevail.

    WISDOM. Welcoming, worship-ping and forgiving communities are signs that Gods Kingdom is in our midst.

    billion.He said the NHA programs benefited

    informal settlers, especially those living in danger zones, and families affected by calamities. Soldiers and policemen were also among the beneficiaries of government housing programs, he said. The Pag-Ibig Fund, the state-owned housing lender, delivered 215,695 homes worth P153.7 billion, Binay said.

    He said Pag-Ibig built the homes without receiving funds from the national government, using instead financing programs, including the Affordable Housing Program.

    Pag-Ibig also increased its maximum loanable amount to P6 million and lowered its interest rates, he said.

    Meanwhile, the Social Housing Finance Corp. (SHFC), the shelter agency that engages communities to organize for secure tenure, provided P3 billion to enable 49,294 informal settler families to buy land and build homes under community ownership.

    The SHFC also granted loans worth P121 million to 1,756 informal settler families in danger zones in Metro Manila, Binay said.

    The Vice President acknowledged the crucial role the private sector plays in housing.

    Private sector encouragedThe government cannot do it

    alone. It is for this reason that we encourage the private sector to undertake and finance mass housing developments, Binay said.

    Two state-run shelter agenciesthe Home Guaranty Corp. (HGC) and the National Home Mortgage Finance Corp. (NHMFC)deal with private institutions, such as banks and developers.

    In the last four years, the HGC guaranteed P153 billion in housing loans, equivalent to 124,346 homes, and expanded its guaranty coverage to include loans of rural banks and microfinance institutions, Binay said. The NHMFC bought P2.7-billion seasoned housing loan receivables equivalent to 12,386 homes, he said. The asset pool was turned into marketable securities called Bahay Bonds, which are available to small and big investors.

    The shelter agencies instituted reforms and implemented innovative programs to maximize generation of housing units according to their mandate, Binay said.

    Since July 2010, 2,749 licenses to sell equivalent to 777,931 homes were issued by the Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board, the regulatory body on housing development, Binay said. We are confident that the reforms, coupled with the new programs we have put in place, will encourage the players in the sector to put more investment in housing that will in the long run address the housing need, Binay said.

    The following is a report of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) headed by Vice President Binay. It is for information and study of the presidential candidates running in 2016 as to their character, whether they are compassionate and pro-poor.

    M A N I L A , P h i l i p p i n e s T h e government has built 750,000 homes over the past four years, according to a report by the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) headed by Vice President JejomarBinay.

    The agency announced the accomplishments of the governments shelter agencies last Friday as Binay continued to battle corruption charges in a Senate inquiry into alleged irregularities in Makati when he was the citys mayor.

    The HUDCC said 749,965 homes had been built since 2010, with the government spending P358 billion for the projects.

    O n t h e o t h e r h a n d , t h e BangkoSentralngPilipinas and the Social Security System had disposed of 9,152 acquired properties valued at more or less P2 billion, the report said. The government housing sector is very grateful for the support given by the President in the housing programs of the shelter agencies. These achievements would not have happened without the support of the President, Binay, President Aquinos housing czar, said in a statement on Friday.

    In previous interviews, President Aquino had credited Binay for the achievements of his administrations housing program.Informal settlers benefited

    According to Binay, the governments socialized housing production arm, the National Housing Authority (NHA), had reported that 360,630 families received housing assistance equivalent to P49.2

    Organic farming school yields first gradsLEGAZPI CITY -- A

    group of agrarian reform ben-eficiaries (ARBs) in Catand-uanes is now a proud batch of graduates of the first organic Farmers Field School (FFS) organized in the province by the regional office for Bicol here of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR).

    The batch has 32 mem-bers who successfully com-pleted the season-long course recently and now distributed among various agrarian re-form communities (ARCs) in the island-province to show-case to their peers the mir-acles of organic farming based on what they learned from the FFS, DAR Bicol Regional Director Luis Bue-no Jr. on Wednesday said.

    The FFS, which focuses on technology transfer through a combination of lectures and actual field demonstrations on what have been previous-ly discussed in the classroom, is where farmers are given a chance to have new field ex-periences.

    It is a group-based learn-ing process where the par-ticipants are given on-hand learning activities that grant them awareness on a variety of environmental-friendly farming innovations.

    The training program also equips farmers with the tech-

    nology as a measure to further increase local production as it includes pests and diseases prevention, appropriate fer-tilizer application and water management that contribute immensely to a more efficient and improved plant growth to attain high yield.

    It is a three-month training program composed of 16 ses-sions starting from planting until the time that the crop would be ready to be har-vested.

    After completing the pro-gram that provides them knowledge on proven ag-ricultural practices based on organic system, Bueno said, it is expected that these ARBs would be able to in-crease their production out of their learning on crop pro-tection and organic fertilizer and pesticide applications provided by experts from the DAs Agricultural Training Institute (ATI).

    DAR-Bicol has earlier forged a partnership with the Department of Agriculture (DA) regional office based in Pili, Camarines Sur and ATI towards providing Bicolano ARBs with knowledge in or-ganic crop production.

    After graduation from the FFS, these graduates were given by DAR vegetable, rice and corn seeds to start with their farm and backyard crop

    program are being shoul-dered by the DAR under the its Agrarian Reform Com-munity Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS), according to Bueno.

    ARCCESS is a program under the administration of President Benigno Aquino

    III that aims to transform ARBs into viable entrepre-neurs by providing them with support services to enhance their farming ca-pabilities and increase their income.

    Its beneficiaries are land-less farmers -- including ag-ricultural lessees, tenants, as well as regular, seasonal and other farm workers.

    LEGAZPI CITY The Department of Social Welfare and Development recognizes its exemplary partners and implementers of the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrat-ed Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS) through its Annual Bayani Ka! Awards with four Bicolanos named as the regional winners.

    For this year, four Bicolanos were declared as the Bayani Ka! Regional Winners. Albay Gov. Joey Salceda was named as the Best Governor, Mayor Percival Castillo of Mobo, Masbate was recognized as the Best Mayor, Brgy. Capt. Policarpio Baal of Mataoroc, Minalabac as Best Barangay Captain and Abello Frias of Dacu, Mobo, Masbate was the Best Community Vol-unteer.

    The Bayani Ka! Awards acknowledges the significant contributions of the people involved in the implementa-tion of Kalahi-CIDSS who

    put their own communities (bayan) before their own selves (I). The winners will serve as the spokespersons in their respective arenas by continuing their advocacy in promoting Kalahi-CIDSS.

    The selection was based on how the nominee exemplifies the bayanihan spirit, applies the principles of transparency, empowerment, accountabil-ity, shares skills and service for the benefit of the commu-nity, persuades people to take part in community activities, serves as role models, shows strong motivation to help the community and maintains firm moral principles.

    The regional honorees were nominated to the na-tional level where the winners will be announced in January next year. .

    BonifacioKada Nobyembre treinta taon-taon, satuyang kinokomemorar

    an Bonifacio Day. Ini aldaw nin pagromdom sa kabayanihan kan binibistong ama kan Katipunan asin nagpoon kan rebolusyon kan 1896 laban sa mga Kastilang mananakop. Sya man an binibistong Great Plebian na minarepresentar kan masang Pilipino. Alagad bakong arog kan pagkomemorar kan Rizal Day na anibersaryo kan kagadan nin sarong bayani, an Bonifacio Day anibersaryo nin kapangakian o kumpleanyo kan sarong bayani.

    Mas ugwang importansya an kagadanan kan sarong bayani kun iisipon ta ini iyo si pinaka halangkaw na sakripisyong pwedeng iatang sa altar nin banwaan sa ngaran nin katalingkasan. An kagadanan kan sarong bayani lalong ugwang importansya kun ini sarong porma nin pagigin martir sa mga kamot kan mga kalaban.

    Sa kaso halimbasa ni Rizal, si saiyang pagigin martir sa Bagumbayan iyo si nagsirbing inspirasyon para mas lalong magkusog an pagkasararo kan mga Pilipino kadto laban sa abusadong gobyernong Kastila asin sa mga prayle. Lalong pinaurog kan kagadanan ni Rizal si kagustuhan kan satong mga ninuno na makadulag sa kadena nin pagka-oripon. Medyo naiiba an istorya kan kagadanan ni Bonifacio kaya ini dae opisyal na niroromdom kan stado. Ini kaya sarong madiklom na parte kan satong nakaagi.

    Garo gustong italbong na sa kalingawan an makanos na mga sirkumstansya na nakapalibot sa kagadanan ni Bonifacio. An dakulang trahedya iyo na an nag-gadan asin an mga nag-konspirar para ipagadan an Supremo kan Katipunan mayong iba kundi mga kapwa Pilipino na parte kan rebolusyonaryong gobyerno. Pamilyar na an kadakli sato sa historya kan rebolusyon asin manungod sa mga paksyon na nabuo na iyo ngani an Magdalo asin Magdiwang.

    Sa sarong lado, an paksyon kan Magdalo kumpwesto nin mga miyebros na loyal ki Emilio Aguinaldo. Sa balyong lado, an mga miyebros kan paksyon kan Magdiwang loyal ki Andres Bonifacio. Marikas an pagsikat ni Aguinaldo ta ginana nya si kadakli sa saiyang mga pinanginotan na armadong engkwentro laban sa mga tropang Kastila asin pag-atake sa mga garrisons kan mga Kastila. Kun ikokumpara an mga pinanginotan na pakikilaban ni Bonifacio, mayo saro man sa mga ini an masasabing triumpo. Ini an pinaka dakulang dahilan kun tano nagbaba an popularidad ni Bonifacio sa mga rebolusyonaryo.

    Naglala an pagkabaranga kan duwang paksyon kan guinibo an Tejeros Convention kan March 22, 1897 sa San Franciso de Malabon, Cavite. Ini kinokonsiderar na pinaka inot na demokratikong eleksyon sa pagka-presidente sa nasyon. Nakua nin Aguinaldo an 57% kan gabos na mga boto sa 256 na mga rehistradong botante asin 31% lang an nakua ni Bonifacio. Mas hababang posisyon sa gobyerno an nakua ni Bonifacio.

    Ini an kumpletong resulta kan eleksyon:President: Emilio AguinaldoVice-President: Mariano TrasCaptain-General: Artemio RicarteDirector of War: Emiliano Riego de DiosDirector of the Interior: Andrs BonifacioDae man sya nagreklamo o kinabalde ni Bonifacio an resulta

    kan presidential election ta sya man mismo si nagproponer bilang chairman kan kumbinsyon na dapat mayong mag-kwestyon sa resulta kan eleksyon. Alagad napikon si Bonifacio kan nagkontra si Daniel Tirona na ikolokar si Bonifacio bilan direktor panglaog (garo DILG secretary ngonyan) ta bako daa kaya syang abogado. Diit-diitan pang badilon ni Bonifacio si Tirona. Idineklara ni Bonifacio na bakong balido an nagin eleksyon. Igdi nagpoon si conspiracy na ipagadan sya ta pagheling kan kadaklan na mga lideres kan rebolusyon nagin pagabat asin sagabal na si Bonifacio sa bagong napormang gobyerno.

    Mga duwang bulan lang an nag-agi matapos si Tejeros Convetion, sinentensyahan nin kagadan an dating Supremo kan Katipunan sa salang pagtraydor daa sa rebolusyon. Kan May 10, 1897 binadil asin pigparataraga si Andres asin an saiyang tugang na si Procopio kan mga soldados sa sugo kan gobyernong pang-rebolusyon hangang sinda bawian nin buhay. Isinagibo an brutal na execution sa mag-tugang na Bonifacio sa sarong bukid sa Maragondon, Cavite.

    One cannot expect effective teaching and learning in a classroom that is poorly managed. This is not just a seeming. This is a fact. That is why teachers have to give a lot of attention to good classroom management. When pupils are disorderly and disrespectful, expect the teachers not to function well. He will be engrossed more in getting his pupils attention rather than in teaching. At the end of the day, no lesson would have transpired and the pupils would not have learned anything. What a waste of time!

    Needless to say, rules and procedures that guide behavior are necessary in order to prevent chaos inside the classroom. In situations like this, teachers find it difficult to teach and pupils suffer the consequences. The teacher, likewise, would find himself in a situation he is are confronted with a bigger challenge. A well-managed classroom provides an environment that is very conducive to teaching. And learning will sure follow. So, it does good for both the teachers and learner..

    Classroom management is very important because the pupils will be able to understand the lesson better since there are no untoward disruptions. Subsequently, they will be able to apply what they learned especially when examination comes. Classroom management will likewise make the students prepared to learn.

    Confidence will be boosted. The teacher is able to give more attention to each pupil and structure lesson plans to meet

    Education is an essential element of entrepreneurship. Studies show that students who receive entrepreneurship education are not only more likely to be employed, but also more likely to start their own business. Entrepreneurial education is one of the best ways to support growth and generate jobs. New businesses are the biggest source of new jobs helps create businesses. The role of education in entrepreneurship goes far beyond classroom teaching and incorporates participation in business ecosystems, partnerships and industrial alliances. It is distinctive in that it requires a generalists approach versus the more traditional specialized business education programs. It geared toward creativity, multi-disciplinary, process-oriented approaches, and theory-based practical application. Traditional approaches focused on knowledge-based courses in areas such as management, accounting and finance. On the other hand, entrepreneurship education focuses on new growth ventures.

    Entrepreneurship educators must expand their pedagogies to include new and innovative approaches. It has been said that one definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. Therefore, the emerging generation of entrepreneurship educators must avoid the paradigm paralysis that has consumed so many business disciplines because entrepreneurship education is outside

    A teacher is not just a teacher, he or she is also a leader; she manages, supervises, secures, parents, and do many other things inside the class to ensure order, organization and discipline, to achieve an environment conducive for learning. Classroom management is the key to achieve such environ. I myself, as a grade 1 teacher have encountered issues with students behavior when it comes to instilling the desired behavior among them. Employing effective class management has allowed me mitigate unnecessary noise inside the class, impart discipline among my students, fostered a sense of responsibility among them, and mitigate problems on attendance.

    The problem with student attendance with regards to class management is a common difficulty. There are many reasons for this. Some students fail to go to school for financial reasons, others for helping their family, and health reasons are also there. The teacher must be aware of such reasons and check their validity.

    particular needs and requirements. This way, confidence can be built for both of them.

    Keeping the pupils pay attention is challenging to the teacher. But the teacher simply need to have devises to make learning effective. Motivating the students will be very helpful. A good presentation of the lesson will likewise get the interest of the pupils. The teacher can get the pupils to be more participative in the lessons. Grouping them together helps. This way, the pupils get to work together, the ones who are better can encourage the ones who are not. There develop an intellectual bonding among them. The pupils get to know and like one another. When pupils are cordial to one another, they learn better and more because the spirit of sharing is there.

    Teaching becomes effective when rules are imposed and monitored closely. It is best for teachers to have expectations and being positive about them. Pupils should be aware of these rules and their consequences if these rules are not adhered to. These rules, however, should be reviewed regularly. When there are pupils who exude very good behavior they may be given rewards which may be a certificate of good deportment or school materials. There is fairness here.

    It would be well for parents to know what rules are being imposed on their children.

    On a very light note, pupils like teachers with a sense of humor. And also those who lead by example.

Pedagogies applied outside the classroom include consultation with practicing entrepreneurs, interviews with entrepreneurs, field trips, internships and cooperative education opportunities with actual entrepreneurs and student entrepreneurship. Reality-based pedagogies such as student start-ups have been recommended. Students must have substantive hands-on experience working with community ventures to add value to real ventures. In utilizing their entrepreneurial skills, operational zed their vision into a real-live of operating business. The students applied knowledge obtained from entrepreneurship like making decisions related to starting and operating the business. Applied analytical skills by utilizing real business information and situations to solve problems and decision making, Communicated (both orally and in writing) in preparing the marketing plan, the business plan and policies and procedures manual. The students can orally communicate to and persuaded potential customers. They can utilized negotiation skills to obtain resources, effectively worked in teams to achieve results, sought and obtained information about and complied with legal requirements related to their business such as permits and licenses and lastly, utilize creative thought processes to solve business issues.

    include: 1. The preparation of barangay disaster risks and reduction management and envi-ronmental management plan for the upcoming years.2. The PAMB members enhanced the activities in the protection and monitoring aspects to reduce threats at the protected area like kaingin, illegal logging, and poaching of other re-sources like wild pigs, wild plants like orchids and rattan.3. Barangay officials were encouraged to revi-talize/organize their own MIGs to actively support the campaign. 4. Generate funds from external sources to finance the planned re-forestation on identified parts of the protected area by the surround-ing communities.The first activity was held in February, this year, wherein the ENRO, along with partnering non-government orga-nizations headed by Jocelyn Nique and Josephine Casem, conducted an orientation for the stakeholders of the environmental drive.The ac-tivity, which was graced with the presence of Provincial Environ-ment and Natural Resources Offi-cer Benjamin Medel, Mayor John G. Bongat and Protected Area Su-perintendent

    Yolda Abante, oriented the par-ticipants on different occurrences that threaten the prohibited areas flora fauna and other natural re-sources and raw materials. City ENRO Oscar P. Orozco conducted an audio-visual presentation on the particular subject matter. In his brief message, the city mayor recognized the efforts of every member of the group to gather and come up with ideas that will boost the campaign on the preservation of the protected area. I appreci-ate your efforts very much, espe-cially the City ENRO for spear-heading this kind of intervention

    that will surely help makes this project of ours truly successful, he said.After a month, an IEC Conceptualization Workshop that aims to gather more participation for thecampaign was conducted. The group intended to achieve increased community awareness thru an effective information and education campaign (IEC). The workshop, which was participated in by MIGs, Punong Barangays and Sangguniang Bayan members, has paved the way for the formu-lation of promotional materials. Also in attendance were personnel and representatives from MNWD and other agencies.The third ac-tivity was the harmonization of the general management plan, the plans conceptualized by each LGU and the biodiversity moni-toring system policy of protected area management board (PAMB).An update on the current inventory of key species inside the protected area was also conducted along with the discussion regarding clear roles of MIGs in the implementa-tion of environmental programs, the issue on abaca harvesting in-side the area, uniforms for MIGs being members of the commu-nity monitoring group, and the coordination between the MIGs and the barangay councils and the support that the two groups can extend to each other.Last month, a biodiversity monitor-ing training was conducted at Brgy. Panicuason, here. The activity served as facility to ori-ent participants about the latest in the monitoring of different species of trees, ornamentals, ferns and shrubs. Participated in the training were the 33 pro-tectedarea superintendents from different assignments in Luzon and Visayas.

    The listing, which was recently released by the National Statistical Co-ordination Board (NSCB) of the Philip-pine Statistics Authority (PSA) based on the project on the generation of the 2012 Municipal and City Level Poverty Estimates, says that poverty incidence in 88 of the 114 municipalities and the seven cities of the region declined be-tween 2009 and 2012.

    Legazpi is mentioned in the NSCB list as the only city in Bicol to be among the top 10 municipalities and cities with the largest reduction in poverty inci-dence.

    These improvements lifted Bicol from the rank of 4th to 7th among the country s poorest regions with Masbate earlier ranked as among the 10 poorest provinces graduating from the circle in 2012 owing to the reduction of political violence and tourism industry advance-ment.

    These statistics are reinforced by another listing recently made by the National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC) which identified the Top 10 provinces in the Philippines that have the highest poverty incidence among families from 2006 to 2012 not one from Bicol included.

    The 10 are Lanao del Sur, followed by Eastern Samar, Apayao, Maguin-danao, Zamboanga del Sur, Sarangani, North Cotabato, Negros Oriental, Northern Samar and Western Samar.

    Indeed, the biggest contributor to Bicol's economic growth is the tour-ism industry which last year generated nearly 3.3 million arrivals for a gross income receipts of around Php2 billion.

    These benefited 556 hotels with around 10,000-room occupancy and generated about four million local jobs regionwide, said Department of Tour-ism (DOT) Regional Director Maria Ong-Ravanilla who added that these figures are seen to improve this year with this city as the highest performer, posting nearly one million arrivals.

    DSWD Regional Director Arnel Garcia said the lists of poor households identified in the survey are now posted in barangays for public scrutiny as part of the validation process that entertains appeals and or complaints before the list is officially finalized.

    The validation provides an oppor-tunity for the review of the preliminary list of poor where wrong entries can be corrected such as spelling of names, birthday, address and others as well as the inclusion of those households not visited during the regular enu-meration.

    Garcia said DSWD encourages the public to follow these simple steps in the Listahanan validation process: care-fully review the preliminary list of poor posted by the DSWD in barangays; come to the area supervisor if there are questions or complaints to the list; and file a complaint without forgetting to write complete information on a com-plaint form.

    were identified as poor.The PMT is a statistical model that

    estimates the income of households us-ing the proxy variables indicated in the Family Assessment Form accomplished by enumerators while conducting house-to-house interviews.

    This year's Listahanan is the second round after the first made by the DSWD in 2009 that recorded a depressing fig-ure 59.5 percent or 461,242 families of the 775,014 households assessed were poor.

    Mayor Noel Rosal of this premier Bicol city recognized as the region's tourism capital and fast emerging as the Southern Luzon's business center, said that first of all, this improvement is a work of nature which spared them from strong typhoons for the past nine years now.

    It could be one of the good impacts of climate change insofar as the region is concerned because all super typhoons that entered the Philippine Area of Re-sponsibility since the past nine years have spared the area, once known as the path of tropical storms.

    The last devastating scenario was during typhoons "Milenyo" and "Rem-ing" which successively battered the region in the late part of 2006 killing hundreds of people, leaving homeless thousands of families, toppling power supply facilities, infrastructures and other major installations and destroying billions of pesos worth of farm crops and livestock.

    What is also impressive, according to regional director Agnes Espinas of the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA), is the peculiarity of Bicolanos in refusing to go down on their knees amid those disasters and rising fast silently sans much howl and protest.

    The favorable weather, this out-standing trait of Bicolanos bolstered by the change in national administration in 2010 which introduced inclusive eco-nomic growth, the putting into practice of countryside development, restoration of peace in rural barangays, the various poverty alleviation interventions and the upsurge in private investments are among the important factors affecting this poverty rate fall, she said.

    Today, good life does not only con-tinue to bloom in Bicol after those past decades of disasters, government ne-glect, fears from the raging insurgency war and extreme poverty that confined it in the cellar among regions but the re-gion has been getting livelier and con-tinues to nourish its booming economy and explore more opportunities to rise high, Espinas noted.

    This city, she said, is among the top economic development gainers, making it to the latest listing of Bicol cities and municipalities with lower incidence of poverty owing to the tremendous per-formance of its tourism industry.

    In a world of expanding class sizes and endless paperwork. getting to know ones student often feels like a never ending battle. In many schools across the nation, a cycle of blame continues to exist between parents and school personnel when some problems exists like low student achievement, high level of poverty and high percentage of students not entering their classes. As a teacher, it is a need to know and understand our students why they behave such.

    Home visits lead to bridge the gap between parents and educators, creating the foundation for understanding and cooperation between the home and the school that is vital to every students success. Some research points the importance of parents supporting their childrens learning in the home. A home visit is one way to deepen the partnership between teacher and parent to increase the students chances for success. The purpose of a home visit was to understand the family better.

    Some research shows that when parents and teachers work together, students do better academically and socially, attendance increases, student performance improves, graduation rates increase, and more students pursue college education.

    Home visits are a more effective strategy because they bring parents and teachers together for a meaningful conversation outside the classroom. For example during the visit each teacher and family member shares hopes and dreams, expectations, experiences and tools regarding the childs academic success.

    In visiting students home, it is important to consider a few items.

    1. Determine the purpose of the visit such as learning more about the students and exploring ways that the school and teacher can better serve the families.

    2. Schedule a home visit 7 to 10 days in advance.3. Communicate the purpose of your visit and approximately

    how long the visit will last (30 to 45 minutes)4. Be on time.Once trust is built, a partnership is formed and then they

    are empowered to make the necessary changes for student to succeed.

    Teaching English &Literature the Easy way

    By JUVY G. CLAVILLAS - Master Teacher 2Iriga Central School, Iriga City

    What is a big stumbling block in teaching English is the fact that a big percent, in fact, maybe ninety nine percent of pupils in the elementary public school have a very limited knowledge of the English both as a language and a subject. The fact remains that pupils in the elementary level get exposed only to English in their third grade. With Mother Tongue now offered as part of the K-12 curriculum, the exposure to English becomes even more limited. Time in the past was when all pupils from the first grade and onwards were English proficient that every single pupil seem to speak English correctly. Today, although some children can carry well the use of English as a medium of communication, it is not, however, safe to say that speak English correctly. The use of Taglish (read: Tagalog-English or Enggalog (read English-Tagalog) has even made the sdIt goes this way, one speaks Tagalog (now Filipino) partly and English teaching the subject difficult than it used to. This use of the language must confused with bilingual because bilingual is very formal and academically accepted.

    In some Filipino homes, the language used by the family is English, the househelp not exempted. She has to speak English, no matter how wrong is pronunciation or his grammar is but English must be the official language at home, Poor yaya but poorer will the small chidren who are exposed to their yaya longer than they are to the other members of the family who are most likely speakers of the language like it is a first language. This situation creates confusion and maybe, trouble for the children when they go to school.

    .There are three domains in teaching English and these are all considerably given equal attention, They are listening, speaking, reading and writing. There are also four skills that should be developed and enhanced if English must be learned and used by the learners effectively. They are function, form, fluency and vocabulary.

    Literature which is a component of teaching can be taught following these simple steps/.

    Pre-reading come first. The children are asked to read the lesson in literature as their assignment so that when they come to school the following day they are prepared for a discussion of the assigned lesson.

    But first an unlocking of difficulties is done. This simply means giving the meaning of words the pupils do not understand. The words may be used in sentences.

    After the discussion of the assigned lesson a review of the story (if it is a story) or the essay or poetry must be done and this will build on student responses on a think-aloud format.

    After the discussion, a writing activity may follow.The study of literature may be complemented by using other

    means of understanding the piece that is being studied. The children may be asked to dramatize the whole story. They should be grouped and each group presents a dramatization of a part of the story. If the students are creative enough, they present the story as a radio or a television play complete with costumes and even technical considerations.

    The literary piece being studied may be the theme for projects that they pupils may want to do like painting some scenes from the story. Or else, a writing contest like an essay or poetry writing may be held. A story telling contest can also help the pupils understand and appreciate the story better.

    the art of . . .should talk to the student, or more appropriately visit the student and talk with the parents. With regards to tardiness, a clear-cut rules should settle this but with appropriate consequence so that students will avoid repeating the same act. If still recurrent, talking to the student or to their parents is advised. Never humiliate the student.

    There is no formula for an effective classroom management, it depends on many factors; number of students, their attitudes and personality, the environment itself, but the most important factor is the teacher factor, and even the appearance of the teacher commands respect and impression. There is no formula, but there are some pointers that might help those rookies out there. Here are some of them.

    There must be perceived clear and just rules. It sets the limitations and boundaries of what they can and cannot do. This must not just be known but also observed, which brings me to the second point. The teacher must be consistent. In employing or executing the rules the teacher must be just, wise, and consistent that the rules stays the same in all occasions to avoid precedent.

    The teacher must be a role model. Not only they can walk the walk, but also exude exemplary behaviors that student can look up to. A teacher does not rule, she leads. There is a huge difference. A students behavior must be not because of fear but because of understanding that this is the right course of action. Not out of stimulation but inspiration.

    A teacher must be fair, just, merciful and open-minded. This is not to contradict the second point but to highlight the idea that special cases, an exemption to the rule, valid reason or excuse has to be put into consideration. It is important that a teacher must have the wisdom to see its validity, if her decision will be fair, so she must see things from different perspectives.

    The teacher must share responsibilities. She must assign tasks to students so they can realize the value of commitment, duty, and responsibility. The most important, a teacher must treat students as their own children. A mother who loves does not spoil her child. She does not harm, but exudes warmth, she sets rules but also encourages, she teaches rather than instructs, and she is reformative rather than punitive.

    Classroom management is a skill and with experience it grows with efficiency and effectiveness. It is what transforms a teacher from an instructor to a facilitator.
