Light of the Word: Envisioning the Hallmarks of SVD Education, Philippine-Asia Facific Context by Fr Joaquin R Ferrer Jr SVD
This guidebook envisions the Hallmarks of SVD Education from three different perspectives, namely, those that the SVD schools share with outstanding schools of learning, those that are shared with Catholic schools, and those that maybe considered “specific” to the SVD schools.
A comprehensive and research-based study guide with key questions and reference materials accompany each hallmark.
The book highlights the educational goals of SVD schools in the Philippines and Asia-Pacific context. It also includes a sample curriculum for MA Ed programs with Catholic Education as a Core Course, and continuing the SVD tradition of excellence, a list of government (PRC) licensure examinations topnotchers from SVD-served schools.
