The following are the essential features of the series:

  • Selections that include a wide range of literary genre for skill development
  • Emphasis on phonics
  • Thematic in structure
  • Emphasis on values and integration with other subject areas
  • Use of rubrics as a form of assessment
  • Provision of online resources for enrichment
  • Development of the key concepts of environmental education, gender sensitivity, justice and peace education, and political education


The worktext is a treasure trove of literary genre with high quality literature used as springboards for the integrated language system of the series. The sequential arrangement of skills provides for teaching, practice, and application exercises that are rich and varied. Integrated in the lesson are guiding principles under which key concepts, such as environment education, gender sensitivity education, peace and justice education, and political education are developed. Hence, the worktext features not only activities for enriching language experiences but also values formation.

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.
