Red Ribbon whips up a  food list-topper ,the new Chocolate Fudge Cake.

I decided not to go to work today , I feel I am overworked  the past week, working at least 13 hours a day, sleeping only for five hours a day  and losing quality time with my kids. It was a right decision, my kids are all at home, no class nor work for them and we had a great bonding time at breakfast.

We had the usual breakfast of fried egg and  fish , brewed coffee and a special treat of Red Ribbon Chocolate Fudge Cake.  I  felt it was a Sunday, as we partake the sweet, chocolaty moist Chocolate Fudge Cake from Red Ribbon. A comfort food indeed for me as I sit and relax for this day.

The new Chocolate Fudge Cake, Premium chocolate, fresh eggs, and creamy butter  perfectly mixed to make a very moist chocolate pound cake. It has luscious chocolate fudge filling and generously smothered with velvety chocolate icing. Quite simply, it’s what a chocolate cake should be.

My insulin will take care of my craving for sweets this day! For this lazy day, its my kids, my blog , Facebook and Red Ribbon’s Chocolate Fudge Cake , to make my day delightful.

Dynamic Learning Program

Dynamic Learning Program, “Learning by doing” and ” Road map and a compass for learning”.

Christopher Bernido and his wife, Ma. Victoria Carpio-Bernido introduced a cost effective method of teaching science and non-science project called the Dynamic Learning program (DLP) in 2002. Their DLP learning innovation earned for the couple the highly 2010 Ramon Magsaysay Awards, Asia’s equivalent of the Nobel Prize.

The Dynamic Learning Program works on the principle of “learning is by doing”, it is student-centered, it’s a system of teaching that focuses on student activity rather than on traditional classroom lectures. The set-up is 70% student activity–30% lecture/discussion, and usually national experts do the majority of the lectures via video. The students learn independently, because each activity is provided with a clear, learning target.

The student will try to understand the lesson on their own by reading the concept notes and by doing the exercises before the lesson is discussed and explained. Some examples of student activities are solving exercises, answering guide questions and copying notes. Each student keeps a portfolio of his work as a representative documentation of his schoolwork. This would later on serve as his reviewer and proof also of his performance in school.

For school year 2010-11, Arellano University forged a Memorandum of Agreement with the Bernidos to implement the DLP in all high school department and some of their colleges of the university.

As a college teacher for the past 5 years I am beset with student poor performance in English proficiency, spelling, poor grasp of vocabulary and comprehension. With this innovative strategy in the classroom, I hope this will enhance and develop students’ potentials in writing, spelling, comprehension, and reading. In the end, my students will be able to master the fundamentals and basic concepts of the subject matter.
