The teacher gives a quiz with a twist and challenges the students to use banana leaves in Iloilo City
A teacher in Iloilo City goes viral after giving a quiz with a twist that requires students to use only banana leaves.
After two years of online classes and self-study materials because of the epidemic, face-to-face classes have already started this year. Some students aren’t thrilled with face-to-face classes, but teachers come up with creative ways to make their classes more fun.
As a result, instructor Neil Amaca, who teaches agriculture at West Visayas State University’s Calinog campus, didn’t think twice about teaching his students the writing system using banana leaves. Amaca, the teacher, posted some pictures on social media.
According to the Post, he came up with the idea to demonstrate to students that the Philippines had no history of paper shortages. The reason he gave was that only banana leaves or other broad leaves from nature were used.
He therefore urged students to bring their own banana leaves for their Agri-120 Post Harvest Handling and Seed Technology Quiz, rather than reminding them to bring paper. Another problem is that it is claimed that some students often forget or cannot bring their own work, so the prompt may be avoided.
Netizens experienced “nostalgia” as a result of his initiative. Life was uncomplicated in the past when technology wasn’t as advanced or widespread. Filipinos made use of a variety of natural resources that they could find nearby.
One is the use of tree leaves on which people have carved or written their thoughts and ideas using the traditional method of writing, in addition to their use as food, clothing, or body covering.
