T he textbook, then, endeavors to provide today’s learners a vital educational resource for helping them develop media and information literacy both as an individual pursuit and as a social pursuit.
T he manner of writing also aims to engage the learner in the style of communication that is familiar to young people who are new media “natives.” By writing the textbook as such, it is hoped that the learner will be exposed to many and diverse examples, as well as to the developments in media and information studies.
T he book comes with a Learning Guide (LG) with Curriculum Map (CM), Teachers Wraparound Edition (TWE), and a Teachers Resource CD (TRCD). The LG with CM and TWE provides sample learning plans to help teachers explain the concepts and execute the activities. It also shows lesson development, application of varied teaching strategies, as well as alignment of contents with the learning competencies prescribed by DepEd. The TRCD is an additional instructional material designed to help teachers facilitate for effective teaching.
Dr. Ernesto Y. Sibal was one of the few Filipinos in academic publishing who can irrefutably lay claim to these three titles—Patriot, Pioneer and Innovator. A staunch patriot, Dr. Sibal fiercely advocated the vision of designating Filipino-authored books for young Filipino learners. This vision was enabled by the establishment of Alemar’s Bookstore in 1958, and through the foresight and drive of Alegria Rodriguez, who shared in the vision of her husband, she helped galvanize then fledgling Alemar's Bookstore as the place to go for textbooks and school needs, propelling it to become the first established bookstore chain in the country.
