As a beginning professional teacher, it is to your advantage that you should know the legal bases of education and the programs and projects of the Department. This module has two parts: Part I deals with the constitutional mandate, legal bases, and various laws on education which clarify your rights, responsibilities, and accountabilities as a teacher. It also focuses on the mission/vision and organizational structure of the Department. It is important that as a beginning teacher, you internalize your roles, rights, obligations, and accountability as you perform your functions as a professional teacher. Part II focuses on the programs and projects of the Department through the years to achieve the goal of improving the quality of basic education. The various programs and projects which are foreign-assisted as well as national initiatives are discussed in the second part of this module. The detailed description of each project helps you identify which project is being implemented in your school/ division and clarify your role as implementor. The lesson on school culture inherent in the system and structure of the Department gives you a perspective and insight into the organization you are about to be part of. The DepEd shall pursue to institutionalize the Teacher Induction Program in the division and school levels of DepEd. (MTPDP, 2004-2010) Induction builds a community of teachers, bringing together beginning teachers, experienced teachers, and school leaders in a collaborative setting where they can observe each other teach and engage in a culture of cooperation and continuous learning (Wong, 2004a).
