Learning Interventions – Brimestone Academy Inc.
During teaching and learning, the teacher should continuously assess learning in order to ensure that students are making progress in relation to the standards. It is at this stage when immediate intervention for bridging gaps must be put in place as a matter of urgency otherwise if the gaps in understanding are allowed to accumulate, then learners will have great difficulty catching up. (DepEd Order 39 s. 2012)
Brimestone Academy Inc. recognized the need to focus on some struggling learners for improving the class MPS or Mean Performance Score and to complement the school’s objective of uplifting the general academic performance of the institution.
The Project e-Tulay is a school-based group of learning interventions to help our least performing learners. The DepEd Calabarzon program entitled “Bawat Bata Bumabasa” aims to reduce non-readers and frustrating readers by implementing remediation activities. For such purpose, the school will be implementing its Intervention for Bridging Learning Gaps from April 4 to 6, 2022 which will focus on Basic Learning Skills. These basic learning skills are writing, reading, comprehension, counting, and four fundamental mathematical operations. Teachers must be ready to give offline written or practical literacy and numeracy activities to their class, however, teachers might request some learners for one-on-one teleclass sessions.
a. For Kindergarten, teachers must actively engage the learners in those expected activities in ECD (Early Childhood Development) Checklist;
b. For the Primary Level, reading and writing remediation must be implemented to lessen the number of learners that fall behind; and
c. In Grade 4 to 10, this program will call our teachers to prepare for re-teaching sessions of those Least Mastered Competencies.
The school also encourages our parents to help us make their children independent readers. BSA is doing all the possible ways to complement its educational services, different learning materials are available in BSA eLibrary. Learning to read is one of the most important educational outcomes of primary education. The ability to read is fundamental to children’s learning, including their development of broader literacy skills, and to their future successful participation in society.
