Multiple Intelligence Test for incoming freshmen of PEHS

By Roxette Latonio

Around one hundred sixty students have taken the online Multiple Intelligence Test from June 7 - 11, 2010 at the (PEHS) Punta Engano High School.

Multiple Intelligence (MI) is Howard Gardner’s psychological theory about people and their different types of intelligences.

Geralyn Bacolod , an incoming freshman said, “Most of the items are difficult for me to answer but there are also few items that are easy enough to understand. However, this test is a big help for me because, I know now which intelligences I am capable with.”

Test Coordinator Marie Rose Dichos said , “ We just want to know what are the learning styles of each of the incoming high school students.”

“I believe it’s better for the teachers to get an idea on how to deal with the different students based on the level of their multiple intelligences. So that we can adjust our teaching strategies.” she added.

“Knowing your learning style will help you develop coping strategies to compensate for your weaknesses and capitalize on your strengths. MI is based on the belief that we all possess at least eight unique intelligences through which we are able to learn/teach new information.”Dichos said.

There are about eight Learning Styles/Intelligences in the test. These are the verbal/linguistic, logical/mathematical, visual/spatial, bodily/kinestethic , musical, intrapersonal, interpersonal and naturalistic.

Linguistic intelligence are naturally good with writing, speaking and memorization. People with logical intelligences are driven by logical and reasoning, Musical are musically gifted. Intrapersonal are adept at looking inward. Interpersonal are good with the people and thrive in social interactions. Visual intelligence are good at remembering images and aware of surroundings. Kinestethic love movement, have good motor skills and aware of their bodies and the naturalistic intelligence has a sensitivity to and appreciation of nature.

Each person possesses and has capacities in all eight intelligences according to the theory of Howard Gardner.

A Song From the Heart

by Federico Nunez

“Inahan sa katawhan, ug kalipay sa masulob-on,
agianan nga matood sa grasya ni Hesus.
Gipuno ka sa Dios sa di maasoy nga kaayohan
Birhen sa Regla, among magbalantay.”

Like the torrential rains of June these words came pouring in as if being freed by unseen forces.

Sometime in August 2009, I was informed about this Halad –Awit sa Birhen, a gospel songwriting contest organized by the Virgin de Regla Parish National Shrine. Its theme: Maghiusa kita kauban ang Birhen sa Regla diha sa pagtubo sa Grasya isip usa ka lawas ni Kristo.

I sat down infront of my computer, took a deep breath & out of the blue the song “Atong Kab-oton ang Kausaban” (its original title is “Akong Inahan, Akong Higala”) literally took its shape as if somebody is dictating me to write the lyrics of this beautiful song. I took my guitar, strum a few notes & the music of this song come tumbling out of the blue.

My talented co-composer, Errol Macoy, Jr., remarked “Tiniguwang ang beat Sir, atong paspason para medyo bagets”. We discovered that there is 4th year student, Rachel Tatoy, who sang like Regine Velasquez, at 4 pm we have recorded a beautiful song using only our outdated PC , a freeware program “Cool Record Edit Pro” and a beatbox made of old plywood (performed by Lloyd Saludaga, a 2nd year student).

I have never dreamed that we would reach the Grand Finals & winning a consolation prize against veteran composers.

274 years since the birth of our parish, only two original hymns have survived, we humbly offer this beautiful song to our patroness Virgen Sa Regla.

I hope that the message of this song will be a catalyst in national unity & transformation.
