More than sixteen (16) million Filipinos cannot read and write (DepEd, 2011). Illiteracy is the continuous cycle between poverty and ignorance that cultivates the Filipino struggle. In this light, the Bureau of Alternative Learning System has partnered with various organizations including the Quezon City Police Department Station 10 and Barangay Loyola Heights in order to deliver and conduct lessons for illiterate individuals. Their learners include a variety of people that are usually domestic workers and inmates who completely cannot read the basic alphabet. The teachers cannot deliver the topics in an organized manner and do not present the letters as constituents of the word as well as properly exhibit the mapping of the word to letter to sound and vice versa. With that said, the proponents will develop a teachware that will serve as a tool that will assist the mobile teachers in teaching adult learners to verbalize a word with or without knowing its meaning. Explicit Reading, Systematic Reading and Phonemic Awareness Instruction are the models and/or teaching approach to be used so that the teachware to be developed will be effective and appropriate to the demographic.
