B. Type of Project: EDUCATIONAL

C. Project Proponent: TEACHER’S LOVE GROUP



F. Date of Implementation: JULY 2016 – FEBRUARY 2016

G. Budget Requirement: Php 31,100


Don Romano Memorial Elementary School is located in Brgy. Talavera, Taganaan, Surigao del Norte. It has a population of 348 pupils. It caters Kindergarten to Grade 6. Based on the Phil-IRI result for school year 2015-2016 (refer to IX. Attachments No. 1), sixty-two out of 348 pupils are within the frustration level. When a child is no longer able to decode, analyze, and evaluate text, he is said to have reached his frustration level. This result is a problem since their academic performance in other subjects was also affected. Thus, the purpose of this project is to aid the pupils by transforming them from frustration level to instructional level until they reach the independent level in order to improve their academic performance. This project also aims to inculcate to the pupils the love for reading and its importance to the society.

Sincerely, Shiela

A Friendly Letter

Read Liza’s letter below.

Dear Shantelle,

Did you know that ballerinas wear “toe-shoes”? They need a stiff-toed footwear so they can dance on their toes like angels. Of course, they also use gestures and body movements to tell a story. Ballerinas wear “tutus,” too. These are short skirt that flows gradually as they dance, while their “tights” cover their entire legs. Why don’t we watch a ballet performance next week? Wouldn’t it be fun? Love, Liza

Alexander Graham Bell

Alexander Graham Bell accidentally invented the telephone. He was testing a new transmitter when it happened. He spilled a burning acid on it and produced sound waves. Bell didn’t realize that the sound waves make sound travel to different places. He shouted for help from Mr. Watson who was in the kitchen. Mr. Watson was surprised to hear Bell’s voice clearly. He went to Bell and uttered, “I heard every word you said.” This was how telephone was discovered.

...Group project – Essay Supporting the article: According to the popular science theory of cholesterol, foods that are rich in animal fat and cholesterol can cause the artery walls to thicken, thus impairing blood flow. This condition is called atherosclerosis. But the question is, is it the high cholesterol that causes the artery walls to thicken, thus creating the potential for a heart attack? LDL is a lipoprotein that enables transport of lipids through the bloodstream. LDL has been regarded as a predictor of heart disease. LDL is regarded as the kind of cholesterol that is deposited into the artery and causing the formation of a thick substance that blocks the bloodstream. It is a popular theory, that the cholesterol we get from eating food, is affecting the cholesterol in the blood, so that the arteries are blocked. However, studies have shown that your LDL level is not necessarily the cause of heart disease, but merely a symptom. The article points to Christopher Gardner, a researcher at the Stanford University School of Medicine, who says that high LDL, is an "overblown risk factor" for heart disease. The article goes on to say that science has been unable to find a link between consuming saturated fat and heart disease. The article suggests that an increasing number of studies have started to raise doubts about the presumption that elevated levels of cholesterol leads to heart disease. This is accurate, even if these studies aren’t pointed out in the article,......

Medical Breakthroughs from 1500 in Britain

...Critically assess the significant developments in medicine in Britain between 1500 – 1948? The Dark Ages were characterised by stasis and of the rejection of anything new and potentially provocative in within society. Little wonder then, historians regard the sixteenth century as the Age of Enlightenment, with its rich and far-reaching innovations in almost every part of European culture, society, science, and political advances as well as spiritual freedom. With the Royal Navy making new affiliations with other countries, there were shared innovations into physics, chemistry and the biological sciences across Europe and Asia. Medicine and its affiliations, of biology, anatomy and physiology, grew into a respected science and the understanding of how disease spread helped the world become a safer place. Universities became melting-pots of diversifying knowledge and open communication and debates were encouraged and new ideas about the origins of life abounded. Here then will be a snap shot of a few men who played significant parts in pushing the boundaries of medical understanding forward and the developments which altered social reform to turn Britain into Great Britain. Few medics working within England in 1600 had any formal college training, relying instead upon an apprentice with an apotheracary or surgeon. Most graduates had either trained in Europe or had managed to be accepted into the Royal College of Physicians in London. (Porter 2002). After setting up......
