Oral Literary Tradition: Manual for K-12 Revised Curricula on Literature, History, and Social Studies

Doris Ogdoc-Gascon
Abstract—Literature has become an important tool to reflect the psyché of a group of people. This study aims to preserve these literary legacies of the Filipinos by documenting the legends and folklores of the country in English and Cebuano-Visayan (using the standardized linguistic decoding using the phoneme-grapheme correspondence) through printed texts. Moreover, recent changes with the Philippine Educational System as an effort to be at par with the rest of the world have been made through the creation of the K-12 Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013. There is a high need for a manual that meets the requirements of the courses of the revised curricula of both the Senior High School and the higher education. Therefore, the findings of this study proposes a manual-output as a reference in teaching courses in literature, history, and social studies that are relevant and novel in today’s generation of Filipinos.

Index Terms—Literary tradition, folklore, legends, Filipino collective psyche.
