All students under research 1 courses including the biotech students will conduct research on multiple intelligences to the majority of the students of Trento National High School, this is to determine the learning profile of the school and to suggest teaching strategies that may fit to the type of learners found inside the classrooms. This study may somehow provide the information of the possible interventions/activities theoretically thought to fit on the current learning profile of the students. 

The research will try to figure out the number of students that falls under the following learning styles: 

  • Visual-Spatial - think in terms of physical space, as do architects and sailors. Very aware of their environments. They like to draw, do jigsaw puzzles, read maps, daydream. They can be taught through drawings, verbal and physical imagery. Tools include models, graphics, charts, photographs, drawings, 3-D modeling, video, videoconferencing, television, multimedia, texts with pictures/charts/graphs.

  • Bodily-kinesthetic - use the body effectively, like a dancer or a surgeon. Keen sense of body awareness. They like movement, making things, touching. They communicate well through body language and be taught through physical activity, hands-on learning, acting out, role playing. Tools include equipment and real objects.

  • Musical - show sensitivity to rhythm and sound. They love music, but they are also sensitive to sounds in their environments. They may study better with music in the background. They can be taught by turning lessons into lyrics, speaking rhythmically, tapping out time. Tools include musical instruments, music, radio, stereo, CD-ROM, multimedia.

  • Interpersonal - understanding, interacting with others. These students learn through interaction. They have many friends, empathy for others, street smarts. They can be taught through group activities, seminars, dialogues. Tools include the telephone, audio conferencing, time and attention from the instructor, video conferencing, writing, computer conferencing, E-mail.

  • Intrapersonal - understanding one's own interests, goals. These learners tend to shy away from others. They're in tune with their inner feelings; they have wisdom, intuition and motivation, as well as a strong will, confidence and opinions. They can be taught through independent study and introspection. Tools include books, creative materials, diaries, privacy and time. They are the most independent of the learners.

  • Linguistic - using words effectively. These learners have highly developed auditory skills and often think in words. They like reading, playing word games, making up poetry or stories. They can be taught by encouraging them to say and see words, read books together. Tools include computers, games, multimedia, books, tape recorders, and lecture.
  •  Logical -Mathematical - reasoning, calculating. Think conceptually, abstractly and are able to see and explore patterns and relationships. They like to experiment, solve puzzles, ask cosmic questions. They can be taught through logic games, investigations, mysteries. They need to learn and form concepts before they can deal with details. 
The researchers will also find the correlation of these styles to the other type of learning styles to see the interrelationship between them. By looking into this parameters, the researchers may propose holistic approach & practices that may somehow strengthen the intellectual well-being of the students.


YES-O RDC members, we are currently experiencing problems on the documents uploaded last school year including the YES-O MEMBERSHIP FORM. The ziddu webhost deleted the files uploaded in their system under my current account. I'm still in process of retrieving the documents and it will be posted soon.

Welcome Research Beginners

From the first time i saw you presenting your output during the oral defense held last January 30, 2013 at the Conference Hall is indeed a heart touching experience for me as a research educator. Looking at you whose in a very young age tried to venture your young minds in the complicated world of research. From the first statement you have uttered at the front of the crowd with the panelist implies your determination to complete what is being required to you by your science teacher Mrs. Daylinda S. Nuñez. I suppose to rate you according to the technicalities of your work but i realize that it is not appropriate to do so since at your young age and considering the backgrounds that you earned from your previous subjects does not guarantee for me as one of the judges to rate according to the guidelines, but instead, i look at your willingness and excitement to present your findings of your own investigation. From those indicators mentioned provides the big possibility that you can make big contribution to the world of technology. I realized that research is not only to provide the best solution to the existing problem in the community but also provides avenue to develop skills needed to become the best researcher. And to that effect, you already have given me the courage to expand more the scope of my teaching, and that is to provide you the knowledge that i believe you need to be more efficient and fluent in doing this ambitious endeavors. 

To tell you, research is the head of everything, it is an art of investigation in which everything comes on its way in accordance to the direction provided by your own investigation. Nothing becomes possible in this world under the supervision of humans like us which where our desire directed us to go like making our everyday work easier than before, making almost everything automated for us to conserve time and effort. A corporate organization cannot proceed to the next level of their implementations when they cannot see the figures of possibilities ahead of time. Corporate organization can only have its way to go forward when a research have been done. 

You are correct indeed that we your educators cannot provide you everything, and it is also possible that we might have provided you an information that is not relevant to your needs or perhaps far from the truth in reality. Perfection is not by far away from us but we tried our best to be near to that level, and it is true that we your educators may deviate from being perfect at all times. That implies therefore that we your educators will only assist you to gain knowledge on something and learning together about that something which we both selected to be the subject of our understanding. Please do not come into thinking that your educators knows everything, educators perhaps have the higher number of experience regarding on this field but it does not guarantee for a perfect understanding on things. What I'am saying is that we, your educators could only provide you the situation for you to learn and practice your theoretical know how in the real setting. 

Keep this into your mind, that research is one of the powerful tools in the universe to change. To change things we want in accordance to our own desires, but let not be selfish to do the change in favor of our own desire, it is also important to consider the others, this is so in order to maintain harmony of living. 

There's a lot of things we need to talk about regarding on research, being with you for years may somehow help you to realize at the end that life is indeed beautiful to be lived with. And we can appreciate that more if we do research. 

Congratulations everyone, and God bless!

YES-O Adviser Mr. Jerico D. Catipay Conducted Seminar and Workshop on Writing Scientific Paper for Research and Development Council

The adviser of the Youth for Environment in School Organization of Trento National High School conducted a seminar and workshop for the Research and Development Council. The seminar and workshop focuses on the writing of the scientific paper utilizing the American Psychological Association (APA) style. The seminar and workshop is the first part of the seminar and workshop series about writing scientific paper. The first part deals with the technical strategy of writing the background and the review of related literature. The adviser provides the specific details need to be depicted in the write up through inductive manner of reasoning. It is also emphasized that before writing down the review of related literature (RRL), RRL outline should be made first to provide directions for the part of the researcher. Forming the RRL through the outline will ensure organized flow of information, and thus provide the weight of necessity why the study has to be conducted.

There are 46 students from first year ESEP, third year ESEP, third year SSC, and fourth year SSC who attended the seminar. The first part of the seminar and workshop discusses the following:

1. Objective the of seminar and workshop

YES-O's Research and Development Council Established Collaboration with the LGU and the Department of Agriculture Regional Research Facility

The Research and Development Council of the Youth for Environment in School Organization established collaboration with the local government unit of Trento, and with the Department of Agriculture Regional Research Facility during the open forum of Agri-Lakad sa Gulayan last July 27, 2012. The main objective of this collaboration is to establish direct channeling of communication from policy makers and the government's agency whose main focus is agricultural development. Honorable Mayor John Mark C. Billanes together with Dr. Edna M. Mabeza, the OIC Regional Executive Director of the Department of Agriculture had mentioned that the role of the youth is highly significant to sustain the government's program on agricultural production to answer the high demand of food in the country. With the partnership of the education sector, the program of the local government unit and of the Department of Agriculture will find its way down to the level where the program is also designed to. Both are also with the goal of educating the young people of the community to carry out sustainability of resources in the community. 

 The members of the council who represent YES-O to this event are Renz Alfred P. Fernando, the RDC director together with Apple Joei C. Velasco, Clarissa S. Yakit and Runna Jane I. Ardina whose doing research regarding on organic pesticides for green and brown leaf hoppers, stem borers, and black bugs. The researchers are aiming to provide organic formula to control pests to the high demand crops in the municipality. They are accompanied by the YES-O adviser Mr. Jerico D. Catipay and the school agriculture teacher Mr. Rosique.
The East-West Seed Philippines commits to provide technical support to the organization when the organization implement activities related to vegetable propagation. The honorable mayor John Mark C. Billanes on the other hand commits to provide support and will assign somebody from his administration upon the formal request whenever the organization have to conduct research and other activities in relation to the main objective of the organization.  Dr. Escolastico Cagatin, the OIC of the Department of Agriculture CARIARC recognizes the organization and is willing to extend his expertise together with his team to help the organization realize its plan which in turn trains the student for agricultural development.
