     Good Morning Class!

     A. Preparation

     How was your day class?                       (Students will answer.)

     I want to know class, what are the things     (Students will answer.)
     that really bothers you? Like, what are
     the things that give you problems?

     Okay, thank you, now, whenever you            (Students will answer.)
     feel bothered or you have certain
     problems, what do you usually do?

     Do you think, that will eventually solve or
     lessen that problem of yours?

     Thank you for answering and sharing.          (Students will give their own ideas.)

     So now, we are going to have an activity.     (Students will be grouped.)
     I will divide the class into 5. Ok, count 1
     to 5.

     Now, I will be giving each group a set of
     pictures which illustrates several issues
     here in our country.
     (The teacher gives the pictures)
I will also be giving you cutout
words/phrases which states several
reactions you can do to a certain
problem picture.

Now I want you to first rank the pictures
from the most critical problem/issue to
the least one.

After ranking, I want you to now choose
the best reaction possible to the given

Each group will present to the class what
they have chosen and why did they
choose that. Now I will be giving you
enough time to do this activity. Are the
instructions clear?

Okay class, you will now present your         (The groups will now present their
answers in the class.                         answers.)

Ok. Very good! Thanks for answering.

So what do you noticed?

Yes, these pictures have relationships to
one another. And what do you call the
relationship wherein one states the
problem and then another scenario
proposes a solution?

Yes. Very good!

Ok class, now return to your seats.

B. Modeling/Reinforcing
As what the groups presented, there can
be solutions to every problem and it may
vary to the person proposing it. Now I
want you to look at the article I’ll be

worksheet which will help you identify the
problems and solutions mentioned so

a solution?

signals if a statement is a problem or a

picture you have chosen as the most
