5 modules on Bicol literary texts now off the press

These modules are on the poems “An Perpektong Orkidya” by Merlinda Bobis and “Tignarakol” by Luis Cabalquinto, flash fiction from “#WeHealAswang” by Dennis B. Gonzaga, short film “An Sadit na Planeta” by Arjanmar Rebeta, and Bikol novel Kalatraban sa Alkawaraan by Niles Jordan Breis.

Ma. Cienna A. Jaucian, director of “Project Dakit Learning Materials for Selected Bikol Literary Texts for Online, Onsite, Blended, or Hybrid Classes,” wrote the module on flash fiction about the aswang. Other module writers are Kristiana Michaela Embate, Rachel Vivien Griego-Cea, Ma. Lorena M. Santos, and Paz Verdades M. Santos.

Project Dakit takes off from two previous module projects on Bikol literature sponsored by the National Commission on Culture and the Arts (NCCA), Maliw 1 and 2, in providing learning materials for Junior and Senior High School, college, teacher training courses, and graduate school.

Whereas the previous two NCCA-funded projects focused on modules for online learning when most classes were held remotely, Project Dakit modules are designed for a period of transition or crossover, dakit in Bikol, for hybrid classes.

The module writers therefore decided to tap the concept of Hybrid Flexible or Hyflex instructional design. The modules allow students to choose whichever way they would want to participate in class, In-Person, Synchronous Online, or Asynchronous Online.

Notes and caveats for teachers accompany the modules, which have also been uploaded to the Google Classroom accounts of the module writers for easy access of teachers and learners. Some team members used educational apps such as Quizziz, Padlet, and Flipgrid aside from the usual functions of Google Classroom for asynchronous classes.

Teachers may request copies of the modules from their respective authors and the Kabulig-Bikol, Inc. and Pagsurat Bikol Facebook pages.
