Abstract:

This study determined the relative importance of Panatang Makabayan in constructing high school students’ image of a Filipino. It utilized student leaders as research participants in focus group discussion where the data needed were collected and transcribed to identify the constructs and concepts emerging from the discussion, described and interpreted through thematic analysis. Different meanings on the image of a Filipino were derived from the discussion of Panatang Makabayan. It was therefore recommended that, for high school students to develop an in-depth understanding of Panatang Makabayan, schools should provide effective knowledge and sense building programs in classroom discussions, lectures and even talks about the value of Panatang Makabayan.
