|Author||Agnes T. Narag|

Philippines: Our Land and Heritage is a Social Studies worktext series, written to help our children become patriotic, productive, and committed citizens who will serve their fellowmen, their country, and God. Each lesson in the book is carefully and systematically presented to elicit age appropriate knowledge, skills, and values. The lessons are designed to help students appreciate Filipino culture better and create in them a deep sense of nationalism through the study of civics and culture in Grades 1 and 2. The study of civics and culture is further enhanced by selected topics in history and geography in Grade 3. Likewise, a more focused study of geography, history, and civics is presented in Grades 4, 5, and 6. The three dimensions of Filipinism-national identity, national unity, and national loyalty-- are emphasized in the series. The objectives and strategies in each grade level comply with the required elementary learning competencies of the Revised Basic Education Curriculum.
This series adopts the Understanding by Design (UbD) framework that considers a backward design approach to teaching. Before carrying out the teaching-learning process, desired results of learning are first identified wherein essential questions are presented. These questions reflect enduring understandings that the pupils must acquire and demonstrate after each learning unit. Performance tasks found in the text after each lesson provide the desired evidences of understanding. These are assessed using rubrics specific to each performance task. Opportunities for pupils` learning experiences are likewise carefully presented in the accompanying Teacher`s Manual.
It is our hope that Philippines: Our Land and Heritage will guide our pupils in their pursuit to become responsible and productive citizens of our country.
