TIME ALLOTMENT:  The time allotment for MAPEH is 60 minutes or an hour a day for four days a week.

MODULE NO.     Most of the Teaching and Learning Guides in the K to 12 Curriculum are divided into several modules; each module is composed of one or more lessons. However, not all learning areas provide the same number of modules. In Art, the First Quarter is composed of five learning modules.

LESSON NO.    Lesson number is optional. It is included here for the sake of determining how many lessons have been taught by the teacher.

TOPIC: This refers to the topic for the day and not the general topic or the content standard found in the Curriculum Guide for Grade 7

MATERIALS: List down all the materials that you and your students will need in the lesson.

I. MOTIVATION. This part of the lesson can be stated in bullet format or through an outline. Motivation part of the lesson introduces concept or topic through an activity that will open up or stir the interest of the students to participate in learning. Grade 7 MAPEH is student-centered class; students do the activities and most of the talking - the teacher only facilitates and helps in the processing of information. Motivation leads the students to discover or to realize something that will encourage them to ask for more.

II. ANALYSIS. This part asks thought-provoking questions related to the topic for the day. The teacher may provide sample questions or let the students formulate their own questions regarding the lesson. To aid the students in formulating questions, short activities and hands on experiences must be supplied by the teacher. This is the WHAT-part of the lesson.

III. ABSTRACTION. Abstraction leads the students to critical thinking. In it, the teacher must be able to encourage the students to formulate more questions and develop their own concepts based on their questions. More short activities must be supplied by the teacher in this part of the lesson in order to help the students delve into the realm of learning. This is the WHAT IF-part of the lesson.

IV. APPLICATION. Once the students are able to ask what ifs in the discussion, the how tos must follow immediately. The teacher must provide simple steps or instructions to help the students arrive into their own realization. In abstraction, the concepts and ideas are intangible or simple pure imagination while in the application part, those imaginations must be transformed into a tangible product or actual experience.

V. ASSESSMENT. Activities must be provided by the teacher to determine what have been learned by the students in the topic and how did they used the learning that they have acquired in making learning meaningful to them. A rubric must be prepared by the teacher to describe the progress made by the students in learning the topic.

VI. ASSIGNMENT.  While assignment is no longer graded, it is still important to sustain learning and must be encouraged. However, assignment should not become burden to the students but a must-be learning experience for them. When giving an assignment, the students must feel that they must do the task for fun and another learning experience. Learning guides in MAPEH provide activities that the students will enjoy making at home or even during their vacant hours.

In using this format, the teacher see his or her students as thinkers, innovators, leaders, and artists. The teacher edifies the students. In the process of edifying students, the teacher is pushing them to come out from their comfort zones without jeopardizing their individual interests. When the teacher edifies his or her students, they are empowering them to take bold steps towards learning and achieving more. The first person to believe in the capacity of a student is his or her teacher. 

This format is not mandatory or prescription to teachers. School administrators may impose other format depending on the nature of their students. When you use this format, please feel free to send me your feedback at or at
