raised and/or answered a question.
B. Motivation
a. There will be a simple game titled Whats the Bid, thats the
Bid! The class will be grouped into 4. Each group will be given
an amount of 100,000 Php which they will use in bidding. The
teacher has prepared 4 news excerpts. Each news has specific
amount that each group has to buy it on their preferred amount
[same with the bidding procedure]. Starting amount of each
news article are: 10K, 15K, 20K, 25K,
C. Activity
a. Now, each group has news excerpt and left amount of money.
The news excerpt they have will be used in the next activity.
b. After the game we had, what do you think we are going to do in
our lesson? [students answers may vary] Ok. For our lesson
which is about Globalization, you are expected to [the teacher
will present the objectives]. If the objectives are already clear to
the students, the class will proceed to the activity proper.
c. Each group has to evaluate the present situation of the
Philippines based on the news excerpt and their prior
knowledge. They are going to write their evaluation on visual
aids [manila paper, cartolina, typewriting, old calendar].
d. Each group does not have any materials. They are going to buy
visual aids to the teacher. There will be a bidding procedure
e. After writing down their inputs, they are going to present it to
the class.
f. The teacher will process the activity by asking the following
i. Based on the news excerpt and prior knowledge you have,
do you think the Philippines has chance to go further on
its status?

iv. Going back to the question we had about the chance of
the Philippines to progress, we are going to predict the
possibilities based on the guidelines which determine if a
country is developed or progressive.
v. The teacher will project the guidelines on a Power point
presentation. Each group is going to write the predicted
year of its attainment on the right side. Consider this:

Guidelines Prediction

bases would be applicable to other nations? Explain.

D. Summary / Generalization
a. What group has the highest amount left on their bank? Do you
want to increase it? If so, summarize all the activities we had.
The amount you will receive depends on the clarity,
organization, and evidence of your explanation.

E. Valuing
a. The big word we had for this discussion is about
interdependence. As an individual and as a student, how will you
properly use the essence of interdependence? Do you think the
Philippines can maintain its interdependence with other
countries? How?
b. You will have better understanding on maintaining the
globalization involvement of the Philippines through the final
activity we will be doing.
F. Application
a. Each group has to perform a 3-minute scenario of globalization
which shows interdependence of one country with another
country. You have to choose a developed country like US, China,
Russia, etc. and developing countries including the Philippines.
Each group may research way/s to extend help to poorer
nations. Then, show an idea of globalization. Your performance
will be graded based on the following criteria:
i. ContentThe task elicits the correct performance from
the student.
ii. ClarityStudents know exactly what to do.
