School is one of the agents from where the personality of human individual would form, it might not be the sole influence but it contributes a lot to the life of an individual since, the basic education system of our country requires the individual to stay in school more than 8 hours a day, 5 times a week_ Through this, one might showcase his/her identity from where he/she is coming and what culture does it bring. Thus, everyone should have the same culture and values as Filipino people who are living in the same country.
This work/textbook is one of the tools that will help educators, parents and leaders in instilling values to young individuals, most especially the students. Though the parents are the first teacher of values to their children, we can hardly deny the fact that every parent have their own ways and practices of their values.
The content of this work/textbook focuses on the human seven core values namely: Truth, Spirituality, Love, Economic Efficiency, Health. Patriotism and Nationalism, and Social Responsibility. From these core values, good Filipino values were formed and developed which means these are the sources of all Filipino values that we have. By knowing these values, we are able to really understand why we have such practices that other countries do not have and why there is belief that other countries do not have. Aside from knowing these values, we will also be informed that we have to, as well, become cognizant of their negative effects on individuals and on others.
The following chapters will give a short and concise practical explanation on the seven (7) core values that Filipino people have. Each chapter contains pre-activity, post-activity and post evaluation as well. The pre-activity will check the students' existing knowledge, practices and beliefs that they have on a specific value. The post activity after every discussion will check the learning experience of the students. While the post-evaluation makes the students reflect on how they are going to apply it to themselves, affect other people and improve the community in their own way.
