About these Guides

The K to 12 Basic Education Curriculum is standards-based. The content standards cover a specified scope of topics which sets the essential knowledge and understanding that must be learned. The performance standards describe the abilities and skills that the learners are expected to demonstrate in relation to the content standards. These standards are further represented as learning competencies which are the knowledge, skills and attitudes that students need to demonstrate in every lesson or learning activity.

The current health crisis brought about by the CoViD-19 pandemic is considered as one of the greatest threats in the Philippine basic education. The challenge to make Education relevant and responsive to the current situation is our primary concern. With the expected decrease in the contact hours of teaching science brought by the change in schedule of the school year, the Curriculum Standards Development Division of the Bureau of Curriculum Development has identified learning competencies that are critical. These Most Essential Learning Competencies (MELCs) were identified using the criterion Endurance. Enduring competencies are those that remain with learners long after a test is completed (Reeves, 2002) or is useful beyond a single test or unit of study (Many and Horrell, 2014). They also refer to learning competencies which are essential in many professions and in everyday life.

To ensure continuity of the learning progression of our learners, it is important to make sure that learning competencies needed in the understanding of succeeding concepts in the next grade level are prioritized. Over all, the resulting list still captures the objective of the science program which is the development of scientifically, technologically, and environmentally literate and productive members of society who manifest skills as a critical problem solvers, responsible stewards of nature, innovative and creative citizens, informed decision makers, and effective communicators.
