THE 2C-21-1R: TEACHING AND LEARNING APPROACHES ACROSS LEARNING AREAS THAT SUPPORT TEACHER PRACTICE
Teaching and Learning Approaches Across Learning Areas that Support Teacher Practice is a guide to all curriculum planners, designers and leaders of DepEd Region
IVA. It was crafted to provide support in implementing the approaches prescribed in RA10533 expected to develop the information skills, learning and innovation skills, communication skills, life and career skills of all learners in the basic education program. The five major approaches are Constructivist, Collaborative, Integrative, Reflective and Inquiry Based Learning ( 2C-21-1R ). These approaches contain five core strategies recommended for use by instructional leaders and teachers in finding ways to help learners get excited about their learning, in responding to their abilities and learning styles and in building learners competence in doing holistic and engaging activities inside and outside the classroom. With these strategies, it is hoped that teachers can now improve learners understanding of the learning outcomes, heighten learner's ability to read, write and reason, and ultimately meet the K12 curriculum standards.

Inquiry Based Approach is a way of acquiring or obtaining information by investigation carried out by learners who are eager to know the phenomenon in question. As a process, learners are involved in their learning by formulating questions, investigating, building their understanding and creating meaning and new knowledge on a certain lesson. At the end, the new knowledge is used to answer a question, develop solution and support a position or point of view. 'Iso achieve the desired outcomes using this approach, the following strategies can be adopted: 1. Simulation is an instructional method where learners are placed in a context or situation made by the teacher. During simulation, learners interact in a way where they themselves are the subject in the laboratory or classroom. Usually, it is done through role plays, games and models. 2.
Demonstration is a teaching technique that lessens teachers active role as a prime source of knowledge allowing learners to respect diversity and work in the process. It is an important component of overall teaching strategy that provides a concrete and visual way of explaining the topic.
3. Experiment is a way of doing investigation in science classrooms. It encourages learners interest to manipulate objects. test hypothesis and work together to solve or prove something exciting. In the process, learners are able to see or relate concepts better contributing to a thorough understanding of the science concepts. 4.
Field Study is a manner in which experiments or engaging activities are undertaken in a natural setting rather than in laboratories, classrooms, or other structured environments.
5. Project Work is a method that focuses on the work given by the teacher for learners to carry out in groups about a certain problem or situation on a specific content.
Collaborative Approach requires learners to work together towards a common goal. This type of learning has been called in various names like collective learning. learning communities, peer teaching, peer learning or team learning. In order to achieve a classroom where collaborative learning approach works. teachers must fully understand learners preferred learning styles and view of learning. Classroom teachers shall use the following strategies properly:
1. Online Collaborative Learning is a method that prepares learners to be responsible individuals in a technologically advanced society. Projects and activities given by teachers to them shall reflect their current and future needs. -

Jigsaw Method is a cooperative learning technique in which learners
work in a small group. It can be used in a variety of ways for a variety of goals that allows for an efficient way for learners to learn content, develop their listening, engagement and empathy skills aside from allowing them to interact among each other and work independently. Pair Share is a cooperative discussion strategy with three stages of learners action emphasizing on what learners are to be doing at each of the three stages (Think -Pair- Share).
Integrated Process Approach
socialization, namely; internalization. 5.
is a strategy that features four phases externalization, combination and
Peer Teaching is a strategy that is carried out by learners that
involves learners taking on a teaching role in the school setting. The three forms of peer teaching strategies are reciprocal teaching, peer tutoring and cooperative learning.
Integrative Approach provides learners with a learning environment that helps them make connections of their learning's across curricula. It focuses on connections rather than teaching isolated facts. It underscores the elements of content based instruction, focusing inquiry, thematic teaching and generic competency model. To produce good results using this approach, proper implementation of the following strategies are highly recommended.
Educational Technology is the effective use of technological tools in
learning. It concerns an array of tools such as media. machines and networking hardware as well as the underlying theoretical perspectives for their effective application.
Lecture Method is an oral presentation of information by the teacher. It is
a method of relaying factual information which includes principles, concepts, ideas and theoretical knowledge about a given topic.
Discussion Method is a strategy that involves two way communication
between teachers and learners. In the classroom situation. the teacher and learners all participate in discussing and explaining the concepts or topics.

Buzz Groups is a method of instruction where a group can be divided into sub-groups to discuss one or two specific questions or issues related to ihe main topic.
Brainstorming is a strategy where participants are encouraged to ask, share
explain anything related to the topic and to let these ideas flow freely during the teaching- learning process in order to arrive at a conclusion for a specific problem.
Constructivist Approach allows learners to be active in the process of constructing meaning and knowledge rather than passively receiving information. It fosters critical thinking and provides learners with a learning environment that helps them make connections with their 'earnings. To ensure that learners are makers of meaning and knowledge in the process, the following strategies are suggested:
1. Thinking Skills Strategies are strategies that strive to improve achievement by consciously developing learners ability to consider ideas, analyze perspectives. solve problems and make decisions on their own. 2.
Activity -Based Teaching Strategies are methods that strive to improve learners achievement by engaging learners in individual or group experiential learning opportunities such as purposeful conversation, project planning, hands on inquiry, analysis and product creation.
Direct Instruction Strategies are the quickest way to impart knowledge where
teachers words and actions both guide and model the learning.
Reflective Approach signifies a movement in teacher education in which teachers analyze their own practice and its underlying basis in order to consider alternative means for achieving their ends. (Perrington, 1992) Some of the strategies that a teacher can make use of are ; 1. Multimedia Presentation is the effective use of instructional materials that utilize a wide range of electronic media allowing the learners to reflect after the teaching learning process. 2.
Drill and Practice is a technique with emphasis on repetition after the learners reflect on their skill or learning&
Mental Modelling is a strategy intended to enhance learners ability to direct their own learning after gaining an insight in any cognitive process or activity.
