This resource for teachers, together with the guide for students, forms the curricular backbone of the Hudhud Schools for Living Tradition Programme. These schools, established in Ifugao Province, seek to enable the intergenerational transmission of the Hudhud narrative chants. Like the student’s guide, the teachers’ guide provides background on the Hudhud, including its origin, themes, cultural significance, related customs and mode of performance. It then presents 12 units, each with a clear learning objective, subjects of study, lesson plan and guide to evaluating students’ learning. Definitions of tangible and intangible heritage are also provided to support the teaching of the first unit on ‘Oral heritage literacy’. One of the chants from the students’ guide is included, along with the list of characters, places and vocabulary terms. As with the student guide, a course evaluation and directory of Hudhud Schools for Living Tradition can be found in the back.
