Generic Competency Model is a part of integrative teaching strategies which enable students to develop "competencies". These competencies are acquired through connecting one subject from the other. Usually, generic competency model is used in Makabayan.
The most common competencies being integrated are the following: personal development, social competence and work/special skills. These three skills are integrated in teaching 2 or more subjects. Also, an output or culminating performance is expected.
For example, a certain objective in Makabayan can go like this(I will just state it in English for the benefit of our non-Filipino readers. Hehe...as if...But take note that Makabayan is taught using the Filipino language.): "Identify material and non-material culture and to affirm their importance through preparing an exhibit about the culture of the Philippines"
In the above mentioned objective, the teacher can decide which competency he/she will make the students develop. If the teacher wants the 3, the better. For personal skills, students can develop their love and appreciation of their own culture. For social competence, the students can work in groups especially in preparing their culminating performance which is an exhibit. Lastly, for the work/special skills, the student can utilize their creative and artistic skills to make their exhibit appealing. Their work attitudes can also be reflected especially given a deadline and/or a criteria. The objective might be related to Social Science, however, the skills in making the exhibit can be drawn from MAPEH or HELE subjects, as well as the proper work attitudes learned from Values Education.
