Target Participants: College and university faculty members presently teaching the Rizal
course and those who are planning to teach it.
General Objective: To professionalize the teaching of the Rizal subject in college as mandated
by Republic Act No. 1425 (The Rizal Law).
Specific Objectives:
The Seminar -Workshop aims to impart to the participants the following:
1. An appreciation of Republic Act No. 1425 as the guidepost of the course content;
2. An understanding of the text/context/intertext principle in the pursuit of historicity;
3. The ability to produce a scholarly syllabus that focuses on Rizal's role in history as an
intellectual and a patriot;
4. The capacity to conduct a class in keeping with sound pedagogical methods.
Rationale
Senators Claro M. Recto and Jose P. Laurel, who fathered Republic Act 1425, envisioned
Rizal as the guiding light for the youth so that they can contribute meaningfully in the building
and strengthening of the Philippine nation-state. This is a tall order for any teacher. Firstly,
because Rizal was a complex persona and his social and political ideas inscribed in his
voluminous writings require knowledge in many areas of study such as philosophy,
historiography, sociology, politics and literature and the arts, to name but a few; and, secondly,
because the concept of nation-state building also requires adequate knowledge about the civil
society and governance.
It is no secret that qualified teachers to teach the Rizal course are hard to come by. But
since the course is mandated by law as a required subject for graduation, the demand outstrips
the supply. Consequently, the subject is handled by teachers, who more likely than not,
manhandle Rizal, so to speak, by falsifying and distorting him and his writings. These include
among them the following:
1. Those whose academic training do not prepare them adequately for the job such as
holders of degrees in nursing, criminology, physical education, hotel management, and the like;
2. Those assigned the job based not on academic credentials but economic reasons: on the
school management side, to save money by not having to hire a qualified Rizal teacher and
assigns the subject to a faculty member in need of a full load; on the faculty member side, to
teach the course for extra units for additional pay.
3. Those, whose adherence to dogmas and beliefs imposed by organized religion, will not
discuss in class the writings of Rizal that they consider heretical and injurious to their religion;
4. Those, who, to cover up their lack of understanding or misunderstanding regarding the
essential Rizal (the social commentator par excellence of a colonial and feudal society) focus
more on trivia such as Rizal's love life, rather than the national hero's ideas on the national
community, freedom, and governance.
5. Those, who, instead of reading Rizal's writings for themselves rely on the readings of
others, notably Renato Constantino and Ambeth Ocampo, and pass this on to their students.
6. Those who, for ideological reasons, dismiss Rizal as unfit to be considered as the
national hero for the status properly belongs to Andres Bonifacio, and to buttress their claim,
Rizal is made out to be a mere decrepit liberal, a reactionary due to his class origin, a traitor to
the Revolution of 1896, a proponent of assimilation with, instead of independence from Spain,
etc. without the benefit of reading Rizal's text in context and intertexting it with other texts as
scholarship demands.
Mechanics
To meet the objectives of the seminar-workshop the following will be done:
1. A resource person presents a one-hour presentation.
2. This will be followed by a 30-minute open forum.
3. Participants are formed into Focus Group Discussion (FGD) units tasked with the
production of a teaching module based on a particular topic.
4. FGD outputs are presented in plenum and critiqued by a panel.
