Integrating arts and culture into general education subjects will enhance student engagement, Senate President Pro Tempore Loren Legarda said Thursday.

The abundance of local references, Legarda said, can simplify learning and make lessons relatable.

“We should creatively integrate arts and culture in our textbooks for Filipino, English, Science, and Mathematics,” Legarda in her keynote speech at the Philippine Book Festival held in Pasay City.

“We can hit two birds with one stone, as they say, so why not use texts from our history as we drill students on subject-verb agreement?” she added.

Legarda underscored the importance of prioritizing book procurement for public school libraries to provide equal opportunities for students to explore literature and expand their horizons. (PNA)
