Localized, Contextualized and Indiginized Strategic Intervention Material (SIM) - LCI SIM-BAKAS

Marker Rosario, Philippines
SIM-BAKAS or Baul ng Kasaysayan (History Box) is a localized, contextualized and indiginized instructional material to address the difficulties of the students in understanding and mastering the least mastered competencies in Social Studies. It is composed of 36 localized, contextualized, indigenized activities following the 2C-2I-1R pedagogical approaches.

Why Localized, Contextualized and Indiginized SIM?

“At times, you need to take the initiative and enthusiastically engage in your work so that others will naturally want to rally around you. This is what we call working at the center of the vortex.”

JC Laylo, LCI SIM-BAKAS Developer

The primary goal of teaching is to provide appropriate and effective instruction to students. Thus, a teacher is responsible to devise and provide necessary instructional materials (IM) in teaching Social Studies (SS). Teaching SS is more productive when there is available, sufficient, and strategically designed instructional materials suited for the different types of students. Also, teachers must consider the students‘ needs and their approaches to learning. Moreover, according to Dahar (2011), developing instructional materials play an integral role in the teaching – learning process and it has a strong relationship with academic performance of the students

Using localized materials in instructional material (IM) will enhance the creativity of the IM developer and will lessen the cost of the IM. On the other hand, using contextualized and indiginized IM will easily understand the students of the concept being taught especially if the students are not familiar with some words. This problem always encountered by some teachers in teaching Social Studies especially in the country that English is not their primary language.
