6. PROBLEMS AND ACTION PLANS

Why the Club has been formed?

English Club is formed to address problems happening in school setting in the


field of English and communication. In so doing, the English Club also provides
solution and action plans through keen observation and systematic studies on the
cited problems.
It also provides improvement strategies on the 3M of the present system:
o

Man - includes personnel from Administrative departments, faculty, staff,


students, non- teaching staff and even parents

Method- the presently observed process or system in regard to English


literacy and communication skills

Material- includes facilities, instructional materials and technology,


classroom settings, references and the like that contribute to overall
interest of the stakeholders on the subject

The Four Pillars of communication

As defined by the club, English is synonymous to communication. It means, the


language is not only used as medium but it is the communication itself.
To strengthen this mission, all activities, proposals and action plans have to
utilize the four pillars of communication:
o
o
o
o

Listening
Speaking
Writing
Reading

7. Short term and Long term activities:

Generally, the club defined the short term activities as programs that, after
being conducted, provide upright effects in the stakeholders but ends
eventually after. It needs not further studies and observation to strengthen,
that requires significant information, based on the effects after the
implementation. These activities do not provide solution to problems at
hand, neither change any present instructional method or system rather
improves one's skills in teaching and communication. These include
seminars, symposiums, and organizational contests, outside tournaments,
tutorials and coaching.

Long term activities are projects and action plans that require longer time
for the proponents to study the problem and eventually proposing the
solutions, observation of affectivity through practice implementation before
commending to full implementation. Long terms are referred to as studies
with long term effects on the stakeholders that may change instructional
system, instructional materials, or to some extent, the professor himself.
