The Department of Education (DepEd) is urging teachers to hold catch-up sessions with their students at least quarterly every school year.
During a virtual press briefing, DepEd Undersecretary for Curriculum and Instruction Diosdado San Antonio noted that educators must be able to assess learners’ level of understanding and application of concepts. Teachers should also be able to determine whether students personally did their homework and not by adults at home such as parents or guardians.
“It does not have to be a question and answer type conversation or those with definition,” said San Antonio. “It can be like a simple conversation just to gauge their understanding of the concepts that the student needs to learn.”
Under a distance learning approach, DepEd developed a new grading system for the 2020 to 2021 school year. The education bureau released interim guidelines before classes formally opened nationwide on October 5.
