The See-Judge-Act Method and the Philippine K12 Values Framework
Employing the See-Judge-Act Methodology in K12 Values Education in the Philippines E. B. Garnace, Yahoo Contributor Network
Aug 29, 2013

The classic, non-neutral See-Judge-Act methodology makes values education propel young minds to action. It remains the most potent of all values educators' academic tools that can make students move from the league of passive knowledge receivers to the arena of informed active agents of change.
Transplanting this practical methodology to an academic setting, however, makes the teacher's job a little bit difficult, as this praxis (practice oriented) method transforms itself into an instructional methodology working with a highly academic, handed-down DepEd framework. This is the part where concessions can be made (in a positive sense).
In broad strokes, I see this concession stem from the following essential areas:
DepEd and Values Education: Philosophical tradition: Personalism and Virtue Ethics
DepEd: Educational Philosophy: Experiential Learning, Constructivism, Career Development
DepEd: Discipline, Anchor: Ethics and Career Guidance
DepEd: Methodological Orientation: Existential, Constructivist, Vocationally oriented…Humanistic-Democratic based so it tends to be open, situational, and pragmatic versus See-Judge-Act: Philosophical tradition: Social Action
S-J-A: Educational Philosophy: Social transformation, and Liberation
S-J-A: Discipline, Anchor: Catholic theology, Social Teachings of the Church
S-J-A: Methodological Orientation: Doctrinal, a conscience-based orientation (personal, moral, social)…Absolute, Universalist based so it judges the bad to be condemned and uphold the good
I see some ways to reconcile the two approaches interplayed in instructional situations. Retaining this hybrid approach structures every instructional activity with bit of eclecticism that creativity and ingenuity must try to cohere and cement.

    which makes enrollment in kindergarten compulsory before children can begin the traditional six years of primary school and adds two more years to high school.

    My K-12 Opinion I myself am not a great fan of K to 12. I know it’s now law and is on its second year. The Department of Education says the implementation is getting better, as schools get to iron out the kinks of last year. But whether it is or not, I don’t know that the program will really make a huge dent in the huge problem of education. Let me be clear: I believe in education, I’m big on education. If there’s one thing I think will bring us out of the rut of poverty, it is education. If there’s…

In fact, even before the government grants the enhanced K – 12 program, Filipino parents were already having a hard time to send their children to school within the 10 – year curriculum. How much more for 12 years education? In this regard, I agree on Rep. Karlo Nograles’ notion on the said program. Generally, the program is ideal yet unrealistic. It is only ideal in the sense that…
