• A Teaching Unit on Water Project TACT (Thematic Approach to Chemistry Teaching) Marcelita C. Magno ISBN 971-8693-14-9 Published by UPISMED October 1993 No. of Pages: 60 ____________

    Project TACT stands for Thematic Approach to Chemistry Teaching. This approach presents chemistry through various contextual themes instead of the usual disciplinal topics. The three major themes selected are CHANGE, ENERGY, AND MATERIAL.

    This teaching unit is part of the theme CHANGE. It looks into the changes occurring in the water environment, particularly those brought about by the activities of man. It discusses the contribution of chemistry towards ensuring required water quality for certain uses. The chemistry of water, its nature, properties, and structure in as-relation to the uses of water.

  • Mixtures in the Kitchen Pupils’ Activities PhP 60.00 Teacher's Guide PhP 120.00 ____________ The module comes in two editions: one consists only of Pupils’ Activities which the individual pupil may acquire for himself or herself and on whose pages he/she may write down his or her answers. It is in a format that will hone the pupils’ reading and writing skills. But more importantly, these activities start with eliciting the pupils’ prior knowledge and provide key Filipino terms for some objects, verbs, and adjectives in line with the DepED policy encouraging use of the mother tongue to facilitate learning and understanding. The activities are inquiry-based, hands-on and minds-on. This means that they develop the manipulative as well as the science processes skills of inquiry, making use of concrete materials and allowing the learner to construct the ideas that will lead towards formulation of concepts close to or in line with current scientific knowledge and scientists’ views. The other edition contains Teacher Materials aside from the Pupils’ Activities. This is for the teacher and contains an Overview of the unit, Reference to the PELC-BEC (as well as to the K to 12 Curriculum though the latter will not be implemented for the elementary grades until 2014 for Grade 3, Teaching Strategies Highlighted, Potential Sources of Misconceptions, Vocabulary, Teaching Plan for the Unit with the Lesson Plans, and Answers to Test Yourself, the summative test, as well as to the formative questions in each activity.
