“Life must be understood backwards but must be lived forward” -Soren Kierkegaard
“Education is not preparation for life… it is life itself…” -John Dewey

In the eve of the Philippine Formal Education, Filipinos were already following a system of “training” for the young ones especially in preparing them for life in their communities or tribes. The belief of the “anitos” had given them some sort of “direction” in living their lives. Nature became their “friend and enemy” in honing their young ones’ readiness in facing a new stage of life…Parenthood and Survival. These changed when the Spaniards together with their friars taught them about spirituality and “civilized” culture inclined to the 14th-15kth century beliefs, traditions and practices. Thus, they made the Filipinos memorize and practice these. So, somehow, these Friars seemingly “taught” them to remember through memorization and acculturation. After the First World War, the Americans came bringing with them the system of teaching and education that Philippine society started to embrace. According to historians, this “Formal Education” started in the Philippines with the Americans when they institutionalized it. They also brought a “system-changer” which affected the Philippine Education. This was the Dewey System. This paper was an attempt to show the effects of John Dewey’s Philosophy of Education to the Philippine Setting and its gradual development in its society. It was because his ideals led the innovation and continuous improvement of the teaching-learning…...

...DEVELOPING EFFECTIVE STUDY HABITS Mayland Community College S.O.A.R. Program Revised April 2002 GET THE STUDY HABIT Did you ever stop to wonder what sets apart the really successful students from the average ones? Why do some students who appear to study all the time just get by, while others who don’t appear to put in as much time and effort do well? Is it all related to IQ and genetics or are some other factors involved? The truth is that success in school is not so much determined by sheer intelligence as knowing how to study. Studying is a skill. Being successful in school requires a high level of study skills. Students must first learn these skills, practice them and develop effective study habits in order to be successful. Very often the study habits and practices developed and used in high school do not work for students in college. Good study habits include many different skills: time management, selfdiscipline, concentration, memorization, organization, and effort. Desire to succeed is important, too. In this module you will discover your areas of strength and identify your weaknesses pertaining to studying. You will learn about your preferred learning channel, tips to organize your studies, and ways to help you remember what you study. The skills you will learn about in this module can be applied in other areas of your life as well: your job, your career, or any activity that requires thought, planning, information processing, and selfdiscipline.

Study Habits all job-seekers out there. Employers want highly skilled, knowledgeable and competent employees based on their educational attainment. “Every employer today requires his prospective employees to be well-educated. He requires expertise. So, education becomes an eligibility criterion for employment in any sector of the industry. We are weighed in the market on the basis of our educational skills and how well we can apply them.” Education is divided into three stages – Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Education. Primary Education is the first stage which is preceded by pre-school or nursery education and followed by secondary education. It is usually referred to as “Elementary Education.” Next stage is the Secondary Education or High School Education. It is characterized by transition from primary education for minors to higher education. And the last stage is the Tertiary Education or often called as “College Education.” This stage occurs on universities, colleges, academies and institutes of technology. Among these stages, we can say that college education is extremely important. This is where we choose the career we want to pursue. This is the stage where we acquire certain degree of learning related to the career we are pursuing. If someone wants to become a CPA, then he/she should take up BS Accountancy.

...Persistence Factors in Secondary School Additional Language Study | The research reported here concerns the voluntary decision of New Zealand (NZ) students, at the end of Year 10, to continue or not to continue with their hitherto voluntary study of Japanese, commencing at the beginning of Year 9 (n = 546). This decision is taken to be a clear indication of persistence, one of three fundamental aspects of motivation, and was investigated in relation to student attitudes towards seven different dimensions of additional language (AL)* learning and certain background variables. Analyses involved the validation of an attitude scale, multivariate testing for associations between persistence, attitude factors and certain background variables, including student ethnic background. Discussion of results included the positing of a multidimensional self-determinative orientation factor, comparisons with similar studies, practical implications and limitations. | APA : Baldauf, R.B. & Lawrence, H.

...“EFFECTS OF STUDY HABITS IN THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF 3rd AND THE 4TH YEAR PHYSICAL THERAPHY STUDENTS” INTRODUCTION The extent of the student’s learning in academics may be determined by the grades a student earns for a period of learning has been done. It is believed that a grade is a primary indicator of such learning. If a learner earns high grades it is concluded that they may also have learned a lot while low grades indicate lesser learning. However, many experiences and studies found out that there are also several factors that would account for the grades. No single factor can be definitely pointed out as predicting grades. It has been interplay of so many factors-genders, IQ, study habits, age, year level, parent’s educational attainment, social status, number of siblings, birth order, etc. In fact, almost all of existing environmental and personal factors are variable of academic performance. However, at this point in time, the researchers would like to investigate the possible relationship of study habits and the factors affecting it to the academic performance of 3rd year and 4th year Physical Therapist. The investigation on this area thus becomes a real and compelling motivation for the researchers to conduct this study. Before we proceed, let’s define the meaning of study and habit.

...Establishing Good Study HabitsEfficient Use of Time "I'm here to tell you what I think is a key to academic survival and success. The first and most important thing I feel, at least to survival and success in the classroom, is efficient use of your time outside the classroom. Remember, there are 24 hours in a day. Set aside two to three hours each day for studying. This will leave you with five to six hours -- after we subtract time for our classes, meals, and a good night's sleep -- to do those things that we like to do much more than studying. The next thing that I feel contributes to survival and success in the classroom is periodic review of your lecture notes and the appropriate chapters in your textbooks. Periodic review and beginning to study for your exams early will save you time in the long run and it will prevent cramming. That way you can be well rested and more motivated and less anxious on test day. The last thing you can do to help get good grades is take advantage of all the academic resources at your university. It can only help you." | - By Dante Battles | The Power of Cooperation "Education often looks like competition. We compete for interest in school, for grades when we're in school, and for jobs when we leave school. In such a climate it is easy to overlook the power of cooperation that is developed through study support groups. Study support groups feed you energy. People are social animals and we draw strength from groups. Aside from the......

...finding a job or a potential life partner. These stressors do not cause anxiety or tension by themselves. Instead, stress results from the interaction between stressors and the individual's perception and reaction to those stressors (Romano, 1992). The amount of stress experienced may be influenced by the individual's ability to effectively cope with stressful events and situations (D'Zurilla & Sheedy, 1991). If stress is not dealt with effectively, feelings of loneliness and nervousness, as well as sleeplessness and excessive worrying may result (Wright, 1967). It is important that stress intervention programs be designed to address stress of college students. However, in order to design an effective intervention, the stressors specific to college students must be determined (Wright, 1967). The Student Stress Survey (SSS) was used to determine the major sources of stress among college students. The scale consisted of 40 potentially stressful situations. The scale addressed interpersonal, intrapersonal, academic, and environmental sources of stress. The items in the scale were also classified as either daily hassles or major life events. Participants were 100 students at a mid-sized, Midwestern university and varied in year in school, age, gender, and major. Overall, daily hassles were reported more often than major life events, with intrapersonal sources of stress being the most frequently reported source. The top five sources of stress were; change in sleeping habits,......

...CHAPTER 2 Review of Related Literature and Studies Local Literature   Foreign Literature (Scott Young) What are Good Studying Habits? I’m just another student like yourself. I don’t believe there is one perfect key to excellent grades that will work for everyone. But there are some common themes to improving study habits and not all of them require investing more time. In fact, most of these suggestions will be aimed at reducing your total time usage, by studying smart–not just hard. I believe learning is a product of investment. If you make small, efficient investments in learning throughout the term you can spare yourself the frustration of cramming near the end. Your grades will thank you and your social life doesn’t need to wither and die to learn more each term. Here are some tips for improving your study habits next term: 1. Use 30-Day Trials. Popularized by Steve Pavlina, trial periods work under the principle that by committing to a change for a month, it will become a habit. Since it is study techniques you want to reinforce, pick one or two habits and work on them for an entire month. 2. The Learn-It-Once Approach. Spend your time learning things as they come up in your courses. Attend classes with the perspective that you could be tested at any moment. It should only be material that you were just presented that you might not have had time to fully learn. Waiting before tests, assignments or finals is taking things too far. 3.......

...Literature and Studies Introduction his chapter included relevant sources of information from foreign literature, local literature, foreign studies and local studies which tackle the existing activities that promote good study habits. Local Literature According to Muega (2003), students need to acquire reasoning skills that would enable them to think critically and to make the right decisions claims on issues. Reasoning entails presentation of arguments. It is when one makes conclusions from what he reads. It is from reading and reasoning one gets to extend his knowledge crtically. To expand Muega’s ideas, according to Acido (2008), data have revealed that the major difference between students with below average, average, and above average reasoning skills centers on their study habits—whether they have good or bad study habits, and their attitude towards learning a particular skill—whether they are interested or not, are responsible for their learning or not, and take responsibility over what they do or not. Acido proves Zolten & Long’s idea that the awareness on the responsibilities of a college student is essential to increase studying skills. Professors in the developing countries said that the undergraduate students should be fully equip with high level of analytical skills, the capacity for critical reasoning, self-reflection and conceptual grasp and ability to learn autonomously and exercise flexibility of mind (Simmons2003). Study habits are said to......
