Day 2: LCC Call for Papers

To officially begin the second day of the event, Jaro National High School Singing Trio entertained the participants with a production number. Dr. Merry Ruth M. Gutierrez, Professor III of the Philippine Normal University, discussed the Foundational Framework for Exemplary Community-based Literacy Programs and Engagement as Basis for Policy Development. This is in cognizance and response to the mandate of Literacy Coordinating Council (LCC) as a policy-making body for literacy, wherein PNU is an active member who spearheaded the said research project to develop a framework as standard for exemplary community literacy programs. This framework will also serve as a Monitoring and Evaluation tool for every community literacy program, and as a legal basis research-based database for national and local policies. She also disseminated instruments to validate the standards and performance indicators of the developed framework which was the result of a grounded theory research conducted last year by the proponents, to wit: Judy C. Bautista, Ph.D., Project Director and Lead Researcher; Merry Ruth M. Gutierrez, Ph.D., Project Co-Director; and Co-Researchers Heidi B. Macahilig, Ph.D., Sammy Q. Dolba, MA, and Al Ryanne G. Gatcho, MA.

Moreover, DepEd, through the LCC, facilitated the Call for Papers as a venue for presentation of the researches conducted on “Community-based Literacy Programs” and other literacy-related research studies. These studies were selected by the LCC Evaluation Committee based on criteria, assessing that they have relevant literacy policy recommendations on Inclusive Education, Literacy Learning and Instruction, Literacy Teacher and Program Development, and Literacy Governance.
