1. History (from Greek ἱστορία - historia, meaning "inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation"[2]) is the discovery, collection, organization, and presentation of information about past events. History can also mean the period of time after writing was invented. Scholars who write about history are called historians.
2. Because it will guide you for the future.

3. Many historians and scientists believe that the first inhabitants of the Philippine islands emerged during the Pleistocene period. There are two theories on where the inhabitants (first Filipinos) came from namely: Beyer’s “Migration Theory” and Jocano’s “Evolution Theory”. Noted social scientist Henry Otley Beyer believes that Filipinos descended from different groups that came from Southeast Asia in successive waves of migration. Each group had a distinct culture, with it’s own customs and traditions. While Jocano believes that Asians, including Filipinos are the result of a lengthy process of evolution and migration.

1.History (from Greek ἱστορία - historia, meaning "inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation"[2]) is the discovery, collection, organization, and presentation of information about past events. History can also mean the period of time after writing was invented. Scholars who write about history are called historians.

2.In order us to know the significance of why our heroes fight for the freedom against the dominant foreigners.

History is often regarded as ‘His-story’, ‘his’ being a representative term for mankind. However, today the connotation of “his” is used in a broader sense, with it being significant of anything or any phenomenon that has a story connected to it. From the history of the universe to the history of this very article, everything is recorded with respect to the fourth dimension, “time”. The word ‘history’ relates to the Greek term “historia”, which stands for the knowledge acquired through investigation. History is not just a subject which is studied in classrooms, but a genuine science that deals with the true origins and development of our planet and our species, following closely through the ages; ancient, medieval and modern. History involves discoveries, research and invention of new analytical methods to succeed in decoding historical facts and understanding them. Though history is deemed boring by some youngsters, it is one big story that can be read to and read by anyone who has even the slightest of interest. Below you will find a few facts which cement the importance of history in human lives.

3.Continental drift is the movement of the Earth's continents relative to each other. The hypothesis that continents 'drift' was first put forward by Abraham Ortelius in 1596 and was fully developed by Alfred Wegener in 1912. However, it was not until the development of the theory of plate tectonics in the 1960s, that a sufficient geological explanation of that movement was found.

1.History (from Greek ἱστορία - historia, meaning "inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation"[2]) is the discovery, collection, organization, and presentation of information about past events. History can also mean the period of time after writing was invented. Scholars who write about history are called historians. It is a field of research which uses a narrative to examine and analyse the sequence of events, and it sometimes attempts to investigate objectively the patterns of cause and effect that determine events.[3][4] Historians debate the nature of history and its usefulness.

2.the study of phil. history is important in understanding the present.

by studying history,we will have an idea on how our world has been shaped by events in the past., we will also learn mistakes committed in the past which will serve as lessons for us at present....

*Setting standards for history in the schools requires a clear vision of the place and importance of history in the general education of all students. The widespread and growing support for more and better history in the schools, beginning in the early grades of elementary education, is one of the more encouraging signs of the decade.

3.The Land Bridges Theory,
Plate Tectonics theory,
Sunda Shelf theory,
Volcanic theory &
the Continental Drift theory...

*Land bridge theory*
Before the theory of plate tectonics, it was believed that land bridges could explain the occurrence of species in separate continents and the resemblances of geologic formations on different continents. Many land bridges were hypothesized, criss-crossing large areas of ocean, the most prominent of them being Lemuria. However, when the sea bed of the Atlantic Ocean was mapped using echo sounding between 1924 and 1927, no remains of land bridges could be found. Though this was a strong argument for Alfred Wegener's theory of continental drift, it would take about 50 more years until mainstream geology fully acknowledged the motion of continents.

1. Trace the history/development of the word HISTORY. Where did it come from? Who coined the term?

History or ἱστορία (historia) in Greek word, means knowledge acquired by investigation. The word history comes from the root word weid meaning "know" or "see".
It was in that sense that Aristotle used the word in his Perì Tà Zôa Ηistoríai (Inquiries about Animals). It was still in the Greek sense that Francis Bacon used the term in the late 16th century, when he wrote about "Natural History". For him, historia was "the knowledge of objects determined by space and time”.

The word entered the English language in 1390 with the meaning of "relation of incidents, story". In Middle English, the meaning was "story" in general. The restriction to the meaning "record of past events" arises in the late 15th century. The adjective historical is attested from 1661, and historic from 1669.

The tem Historian in the sense of a "researcher of history" is attested from 1531. In all European languages, the substantive "history" is still used to mean both "what happened with men", and "the scholarly study of the happened", the latter sense sometimes distinguished with a capital letter, "History", or the word historiography.

2. Why do we need to study PHILIPPINE HISTORY? What is the significance of history in the development of national consciousness of the Filipino nation?

Studying Philippine History will encourage us Filipinos to love our country more and to remind us of the courage of our heroes that fought and died for our independence. Studying Philippine History will give us a deep sense of understanding of our origins and roles as citizens of our country that will help develop the national consciousness of the Filipino nation. We need to study our history because we are true blooded Filipinos and for us to learn from the mistakes in the past.

At present, Colonial mentality is deeply rooted to the minds of the youth believing that anything foreign is the best which destroys our national identity. Therefore, studying Philippine History is very important to produce new breed of Filipinos who have a strong sense of nationalism in their hearts and minds.

3. Select one theory on the origin of the Filipinos. Who is the proponent of your selected theory? Discuss the details.
One theory on the origin of the Filipinos is the Beyer’s Migration Theory. The proponent in this theory is social scientist Henry Otley Beyer wherein he believes that Filipinos came from different groups that came from Southeast Asia in successive waves of migration.
According to the Migration Theory of Beyer, the first migrants were the Dawnmen or the Cavemen. They resembled the Javaman, Pekingman, and other Asian Homoe sapiens. It was in search for food that they came to the Philippines by way of land bridges connecting Philippines and Indonesia.
The second group of migrants were the Aetas or Negritoes. About 30,000 thousand years ago, they crossed the land bridged from Malaya, Borneo and Australia until they reached Palawan, Mindoro, and Mindanao. The Aetas were already in the Philippines when the land bridges disappeared due to the thinning of the ice glaciers and the subsequent increase in seawater level. This natural event forced them to remain in the Philippines and become its first permanent inhabitants.
Because of the disappearance of the land bridges, the third wave of migrants was necessarily skilled in seafaring. These were the Indonesians, who came to the Philippines by boats.
The last migrants according to Beyer were the Malays. They were believed to have come from Java, Sumatra, Borneo, and the Malay Peninsula more than 2,000 years ago. Like the Indonesians, they also traveled in boats and their technology was said to be more advanced.

1. Ancient Greek ἱστορία means "inquiry" or "knowledge from inquiry", from ἵστωρ (hístōr) "judge" (from the Proto-Indo-European agent noun *wid-tor: "one who knows").[10] It was in that sense that Aristotle used the word in his Περὶ Τὰ Ζῷα Ἱστορίαι[11] (Perì Tà Zôa Ηistoríai "Inquiries about Animals"). The ancestor word ἵστωρ is attested early on in Homeric Hymns, Heraclitus, the Athenian ephebes' oath, and in Boiotic inscriptions (in a legal sense, either "judge" or "witness", or similar).
It was still in the Greek sense that Francis Bacon used the term in the late 16th century, when he wrote about "Natural History". For him, historia was "the knowledge of objects determined by space and time", that sort of knowledge provided by memory (while science was provided by reason, and poetry was provided by fantasy).
The word entered the English language in 1390 with the meaning of "relation of incidents, story".

2. We need to study Philippine history to know how we gained our freedom and who are the people who made it happened. We also need to study who colonized our dear nation. It is the history that tells us the ordeals that our ancestors had suffered as well as their triumph.
It is significant in the development of the national consciousness of the Filipino nation because it will make every Filipino to become patriotic and understand the great deeds of our heroes, both known and unknown. It will make Filipinos to be proud and tell the world hoe great their nation is.

3.Beyer's Wave Migration Theory

The most widely known theory of the prehistoric peopling of the Philippines is that of H. Otley Beyer, founder of the Anthropology Department of the University of the Philippines. Heading that department for 40 years, Professor Beyer became the unquestioned expert on Philippine prehistory, exerting early leadership in the field and influencing the first generation of Filipino historians and anthropologists, archaeologists, paleontologists, geologists,and students the world over.[1] According to Dr. Beyer, the ancestors of the Filipinos came in different "waves of migration", as follows:[2]
"Dawn Man", a cave-man type who was similar to Java man, Peking Man, and other Asian homo sapiens of 250,000 years ago.
The aboriginal pygmy group, the Negritos, who arrived between 25,000 and 30,000 years ago via land bridges.
The sea-faring tool-using Indonesian group who arrived about 5,000 to 6,000 years ago and were the first immigrants to reach the Philippines by sea.
The seafaring, more civilized Malays who brought the Iron age culture and were the real colonizers and dominant cultural group in the pre-Hispanic Philippines.
Unfortunately, there is no definite evidence, archaeological or historical, to support this "migration theory". On the contrary, there are sufficient reasons for doubting it, including the following:[3]
Beyer used the 19th century scientific methods of progressive evolution and migratory diffusion as the basis for his hypothesis. These methods have now been proven to be too simple and unreliable to explain the prehistoric peopling of the Philippines.
The empirical archaeological data for the theory was based on surface finds and mere conjecture, with much imagination and unproven data included.
Later findings contradicted the migration theory and the existence of the "Dawn Man" postulated by Beyer.
Undue credit is given to Malays as the original settlers of the lowland regions and the dominant cultural transmitter.

The history of the world is the history of 1.humanity from the earliest times to the present, in all places on earth, beginning with the Paleolithic Era or "early stone age". It excludes non-human natural history and geological history, except insofar as the natural world substantially affects human lives. World history encompasses the study of written records, from ancient times forward, plus additional knowledge gained from other sources, such as archaeology. Ancient recorded history begins with the invention, independently at several sites on Earth, of writing, which created the infrastructure for lasting, accurately transmitted memories and thus for the diffusion and growth of knowledge. However, the roots of civilization reach back to the period before writing — humanity's prehistory.

2. we need to study the history of the Philippines because for as to know the past of our country and the culture of all the province here in the Philippines.

3.The Ilocano or Ilokano people are the third largest Filipino ethnolinguistic group. Aside from being referred to as Ilocanos, from "i"-from, and "looc"-bay, they also refer to themselves as Samtoy, from the Ilocano phrase "sao mi ditoy", meaning 'our language here.' The word "Ilocano" came from the word "Iloco" or "Yloco."

1. The word History comes from the Greek word historia, meaning “knowledge acquired by investigation”. This refers to the collection of information about the past events. Amongst scholars, the fifth century BC Greek historian Herodotus is considered to be the "father of history", and, along with his contemporary Thucydides, forms the foundations for the modern study of history.

2. Students like me often wonder why we need to study Philippine history. But as I grow older, I was able to know its importance. Like any other subject, man has to study history, for it deals with the past. And as we all know, whatever happened in the past, affects the future. The purpose of studying it is to educate man about the past and to make him realize and understand more about the situations he is in today. Through this, man will learn from past mistakes and avoid it from happening again. History has done its part in shaping the society we are in today. But like other things, history has its shares of the good and the bad and whatever unpleasantness that history has created may be corrected in the future. Man is the only living thing that could do something to correct past mistakes and only by studying history could he begin to see and understand events and avoid them from happening in the future.

3. Jocano’s Theory

Renowned Filipino anthropologist Felipe Landa Jocano disputes Beyer’s belief that Filipinos descended from Negritoes and Malays who migrated to the Philippines thousands of years ago. According to Jocano, it is difficult to prove that Negritoes were the first inhabitants of this country. The only thing that can positively concluded from fossil evidence, he says is that the first men who came to the Philippines also went to New Guinea, Java, Borneo, and Australia.

In 1962, a skullcap and a portion of a jaw-presumed to be a human origin-were found in the Tabon Caves of Palawan by archaeologist Robert Fox and Manuel Santiago, who both worked for the National Museum. Carbon dating placed their age at 21,000 to 22,000 years. This proves, Jocano argues, that man came earlier to the Philippines than to the Malay Peninsula; therefore, the first inhabitants of our islands could not have come from the region. The “Tabon Man” is said to resemble Java Man and Peking Man. He gathered fruits, leaves and plants for his food. He hunted with weapons made of stone. Although further research is still being done on his life and culture, evidence shows that he was already capable of using his brain in order to survive and keep himself safe.

Instead of the Migration Theory, Jocano advances the Evolution Theory, as a better explanation of how our country was first inhabited by human beings, Jocano believes that the first people of Southeast Asia were products of a long process of evolution and migration. His research indicates that they shared more or less the same culture, beliefs, practices an even similar tools and implements. These people eventually went their separate ways; some migrated to the Philippines, the others to New Guinea, Java and Borneo. Proof, Jocano says, can be found in the fossils discovered in different parts of Southeast Asia, as well as the recorded migrations of other peoples from the Asian mainland when history began to unfold.

1)HISTORY(came from the Greek word-historia, meaning "inquiry,)
>>it is the discovery, collection, organization, and presentation of information about past events.
>>From the 5th century BC Greek historian HERODOTUS("father of history"),and, along with his contemporary THUCYDIDES, forms the foundations for the modern study of history. Their influence, along with other historical traditions in other parts of their world, have spawned many different interpretations of the nature of history which has evolved over the centuries and are continuing to change.
2)we need to study Philippine history
to know the changes (e.g in government,in culture and so on.)before and after we've been colonized by Spaniards and many more.
>> The Philippines now made a big changes because of what had happened at the past specially in government




The Aetas

The Aetas or Negritoes were the first group of people who came to the Philippines through the land bridges. They were small, about four feet tall. They had dark skin, flat noses, thick lips and black kinky hair. They used bows and arrows as weapons. They used &yes and barks of trees for their clothing.

The Aetas were a wandering people. They had no permanent home. Most of them lived in caves at the mountainsides. Sometimes, they made temporary shelter made of twigs and leaves of trees. They moved from one place to another to get food. They gathered fruits, root crops and edible plants around.

The descendants of the Aetas can still be found in the mountains of Luzon, Mindanao, Panay, Mindoro and Palawan. They are sometimes called Ita, Baluga, Agta or Ati.

1.History (from Greek ἱστορία - historia, meaning "inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation"[2]) is the discovery, collection, organization, and presentation of information about past events. History can also mean the period of time after writing was invented. Scholars who write about history are called historians. It is a field of research which uses a narrative to examine and analyse the sequence of events, and it sometimes attempts to investigate objectively the patterns of cause and effect that determine events.[3][4] Historians debate the nature of history and its usefulness. This includes discussing the study of the discipline as an end in itself and as a way of providing "perspective" on the problems of the present.
2.its very important to study the history of the philippines because the history explain how we lived during the ancient time and how we survived for that period of time and its very important to us to know the history of our country because it guide us for our future and help us to do our decision correctly because i believe that anything that had happened in the past help us to learned and be strong for the future.
3.The Filipino people are an ethnic group primarily located in the Philippines. There are about 92 million Filipinos in the Philippines,[18] and about 11 million living outside the Philippines.[19] Most Filipinos refer to themselves colloquially as "Pinoy" (feminine: "Pinay"), which is a slang word formed by taking the last four letters of "Pilipino" and adding the diminutive suffix "-y". The lack of the letter "F" in the pre-1987 Philippine alphabet, Abakada, had caused the letter "F" to be substituted with "P". This is why, when the 28-letter modern Filipino alphabet was made official in 1987, the name Filipino was preferred over Pilipino. The name Filipino was chosen by the Spanish explorer Ruy López de Villalobos, who named the islands "las Islas Filipinas" ("the Philippine Islands") after Philip II of Spain.[20]

3. Migration Theory

The first migrants were what Beyer caked the “Dawnmen” (or “cavemen” because they lived in caves.). The Dawnmen resembled Java Man, Peking Man, and other Asian Home sapiens who existed about 250,000 years ago. They did not have any knowledge of agriculture, and lived by hunting and fishing. It was precisely in search of food that they came to the Philippines by way of the land bridges that connected the Philippines and Indonesia. Owing perhaps to their migratory nature, they eventually left the Philippines for destinations unknown.The second group of migrants was composed of dark-skinned pygmies called “Aetas’ or “Negritoes”.About 30,000 years ago, they crossed the land bridged from Malaya, Borneo, and Australia until they reached Palawan, Mindoro and Mindanao. They were pygmies who went around practically naked and were good at hunting, fishing and food gathering. They used spears and small flint stones weapons.The Aetas were already in the Philippines when the land bridges disappeared due to the thinning of the ice glaciers and the subsequent increase in seawater level. This natural events “forced” them to remain in the country and become its first permanent inhabitants.Because of the disappearance of the land bridges, the third wave of migrants was necessarily skilled in seafaring. These were the Indonesians, who came to the islands in boats. They were more advanced than the Aetas in that: they had tools made out of stone and steel, which enabled them to build sturdier houses: they engaged in farming and mining, and used materials made of brass; they wore clothing and other body ornaments.

Last to migrate to the Philippines, according to Beyer, were Malays. They were believed to have come from Java, Sumatra, Borneo, and the Malay Peninsula more than 2,000 years ago. Like the Indonesians, they also traveled in boats.

The Malays were brown-skinned and of medium height, with straight black hair and flat noses. Their technology was said to be more advanced than that of their predecessors. They engaged in pottery, weaving, jewelry making and metal smelting, and introduced the irrigation system in rice planting.

1.History it means its event that happened long time ago.
2.We need to study Philippine history to know what happened long time ago and to know who is our hero in the past.The significance of the history in the development of national consciousness of Filipino nation is to knowing for each Filipino.
3.I select the Migration Theory of H.Otley Beyer,regarding the peopling of the archipelago become the most widely known Version in Philippines history.According to Dr.Beyer,the ancestors of the Filipinos came in waves of migration.It is one of the invented the migration theory that belongs on the theory on the origin of Filipinos.

1.History=>study of past
=>from Greek ἱστορία - historia, meaning "inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation".

2.In every filipino we must know the history of the philippine,so that we are aware how does phil.did and it also let us know more about the country.
=>it is important step in loving phil.and courage of the heroes that fought and died for us.

1.History - from the Greek word iotopia- historia, meaning "inquiry",knowledge acquired by investigation.Is the discovery ,collection,organization,and presentation of information about past events.History can also mean the period of time after writing invented.
-Historian - scholars who write about Filipinos.

2.We need to study Philippine History so that we can produce a new breed of Filipinos who have a strong sense of NATIONALISM in their hearts and minds.As a result ,whatever the mistakes in the past are the present generation may not repeat it and the future generation would be freed from the bondage of tyranny and slavery.
-significance of history through contexualization would develop in our active participation,not only in classroom discussion ,but also in performing our role as citizen of our country.

3.JOCANO'S THEORY

2).In order us to know the significance of why our heroes fight for the freedom against the dominant foreigners.

History is often regarded as ‘His-story’, ‘his’ being a representative term for mankind. However, today the connotation of “his” is used in a broader sense, with it being significant of anything or any phenomenon that has a story connected to it. From the history of the universe to the history of this very article, everything is recorded with respect to the fourth dimension, “time”. The word ‘history’ relates to the Greek term “historia”, which stands for the knowledge acquired through investigation. History is not just a subject which is studied in classrooms, but a genuine science that deals with the true origins and development of our planet and our species, following closely through the ages; ancient, medieval and modern. History involves discoveries, research and invention of new analytical methods to succeed in decoding historical facts and understanding them. Though history is deemed boring by some youngsters, it is one big story that can be read to and read by anyone who has even the slightest of interest. Below you will find a few facts which cement the importance of history in human lives.


3)he Ilocano or Ilokano people are the third largest Filipino ethnolinguistic group. Aside from being referred to as Ilocanos, from "i"-from, and "looc"-bay, they also refer to themselves as Samtoy, from the Ilocano phrase "sao mi ditoy", meaning 'our language here.' The word "Ilocano" came from the word "Iloco" or "Yloco."

1. History

Is the discovery, collection, organization, and presentation of information about past events.

History can also mean the period of time after writing was invented. Scholars who write about history are called historians. It is a field of research which uses a narrative to examine and analyse the sequence of events, and it sometimes attempts to investigate objectively the patterns of cause and effect that determine events .Historians debate the nature of history and its usefulness.



2.
The study of phil. history is important in understanding the present.
by studying history,we will have an idea on how our world has been shaped by events in the past., we will also learn mistakes committed in the past which will serve as lessons for us at present and because of studying phil. history we can see the early lifestyle of our forefathers, like, on how they live and survive without our technologist.
Religious movements such as the cofradIa and colorums expressed an inchoate desire of their members to be rid of the Spanish and discover a promised land that would reflect memories of a world that existed before the coming of the colonists. Nationalism in the modern sense developed in an urban context, in Manila and the major towns and, perhaps more significantly, in Spain and other parts of Europe where Filipino students and exiles were exposed to modern intellectual currents. Folk religion, for all its power, did not form the basis of the national ideology. Yet the millenarian tradition of rural revolt would merge with the Europeanized nationalism of theilustrados to spur a truly national resistance, first against Spain in 1896 and then against the Americans in 1899.
question the need for a continuing association with Spain.



3. Plate tectonics theory?

History of plate tectonics


Plate tectonic theory had its beginnings in 1915 when Alfred Wegener proposed his theory of "continental drift."

Wegener proposed that the continents plowed through crust of ocean basins, which would explain why the outlines of many coastlines (like South America and Africa) look like they fit together like a puzzle. Wegener was not the first to notice this puzzle-like fit of the continents (Magellan and other early explorers also noticed this on their maps), but he was one of the first to realize that the Earth's surface has changed through time, and that continents that are separated now may have been joined together at one point in the past.

1. Trace the history/development of the word HISTORY. Where did it come from? Who

coined the term?

->>The word history comes from the root *weid- "know" or "see".
Ancient Greek ἱστορία means "inquiry" or "knowledge from inquiry", from ἵστωρ

(hístōr) "judge" (from the Proto-Indo-European agent noun *wid-tor: "one who

knows"). It was in that sense that Aristotle used the word in his Περὶ Τὰ Ζῷα

Ἱστορίαι (Perì Tà Zôa Ηistoríai "Inquiries about Animals"). The ancestor word

ἵστωρ is attested early on in Homeric Hymns, Heraclitus, the Athenian ephebes'

oath, and in Boiotic inscriptions (in a legal sense, either "judge" or "witness",

or similar).

It was still in the Greek sense that Francis Bacon used the term in the late 16th

century, when he wrote about "Natural History". For him, historia was "the

knowledge of objects determined by space and time", that sort of knowledge

provided by memory (while science was provided by reason, and poetry was provided

by fantasy).


2. Why do we need to study PHILIPPINE HISTORY? What is the significance of

history in the development of national consciousness of the Filipino nation?
->>Understanding One’s Existence, ForA Better Future, To Learn From Our Ancestors
To Understand Working Of The Society,To Govern Efficiently, Inventions &

Discoveries and To Have Solid Foundation
-> Through history, younger generations will able to understand the present

situation of thier society and able to comprehend what is happening in the

present time and the reason for every Laws generating in our society now.


3. Select one theory on the origin of the Filipinos. Who is the proponent of your

selected theory? Discuss the details.

->>There are several theories given by scientists as to the origin of the

Filipinos. One of these theories explains that the Philippines was once inhabited

by the Tabon men who resembled the Java men and who lived about 250,000 years

ago. These people lived in caves and used stones as tools for gathering food.

A famous American archaeologist, three waves of people came to the Philippines

from the Asian peninsula. These were the Aetas, Indonesians and Malays.

The Aetas

The Aetas or Negritoes were the first group of people who came to the Philippines

through the land bridges. They were small, about four feet tall. They had dark

skin, flat noses, thick lips and black kinky hair. They used bows and arrows as

weapons. They used &yes and barks of trees for their clothing.

The Aetas were a wandering people. They had no permanent home. Most of them lived

in caves at the mountainsides. Sometimes, they made temporary shelter made of

twigs and leaves of trees. They moved from one place to another to get food. They

gathered fruits, root crops and edible plants around.

The descendants of the Aetas can still be found in the mountains of Luzon,

Mindanao, Panay, Mindoro and Palawan. They are sometimes called Ita, Baluga, Agta

or Ati.

1.)The word history comes from the root *weid- "know" or "see
history, in its broadest sense, is the story of humanity's past. It also refers to the recording of that past. The diverse sources of history include books, newspapers, printed documents, personal papers, and other archival records, artifacts, and oral accounts. Historians use this material to form coherent narratives and uncover linked sequences and patterns in past events. Most histories are concerned with causality, that is, why certain outcomes happened as they did, and how they are linked to earlier events..It was still in the Greek sense that Francis Bacon used the term in the late 16th century, when he wrote about "Natural History". For him, historian was "the knowledge of objects determined by space and time",

2.) We study the history of the Philippines so that we can relate with the issues at the present. Also, we can appreciate the past of our heroes. We can connect the past of the Philippines to the present day.

The importance or significance of history is as following :
To Improve the future
When we study about the wars or atrocities committed in past, we study about it causes , effects , losses, or gains etc.. These events helps to improve future mistakes and misdeeds of similar kinds.
To Understand Working Of The Society
To really understand the working of human society and formation of the intricate bonds of relationships and dependence, we need to learn the actual development of human society. This cannot be possible without learning the history of human society and cultures. When we learn how settlements grew into villages and then towns and finally cities, we also learn the sources of important believes and roots of some social evils.


3.) Theories about the people who occupied this part of the earth vary. With a click at the heading, the site will transport you back to the different periods of ancient time--almost. This page contains some important theories about the origin of the people who occupied this land from the pleistoscene era up to the time when our ancestors decided to permanently inhabit the land.Darwin's theory of evolution is based on five key observations and inferences drawn from them. These observations and inferences have been summarized by the great biologist Ernst Mayr as follows:
1) Species have great fertility. They make more offspring than can grow to adulthood.
2) Populations remain roughly the same size, with modest fluctuations.
3) Food resources are limited, but are relatively constant most of the time.
From these three observations it may be inferred that in such an environment there will be a struggle for survival among individuals.
4) In sexually reproducing species, generally no two individuals are identical. Variation is rampant.
5) Much of this variation is heritable.

1.Early History -The Negritos are believed to have migrated to the Philippines some 30,000 years ago from Borneo, Sumatra, and Malaya. The Malayans followed in successive waves. These people belonged to a primitive epoch of Malayan culture, which has apparently survived to this day among certain groups such as the Igorots. The Malayan tribes that came later had more highly developed material cultures.
2.because the history always affects us and it guide us for our wright direction to the future.
3.The first human remains discovered by anthropologists in the Philippines were that of the Prehistoric Tabon Man, found in Palawan. Archaeological evidence indicates similarities with two early human fossils found in Indonesia and China, called the Java Man and Peking Man.

1. Etymology: Middle English histoire, historie, from Anglo-French estoire, histoire, from
Latin historia, from Greek, inquiry, history, from histōr, istōr knowing, learned; akin to
Greek eidenai to know
History is the study of the past. It is by nature an extremely broad discipline that includes an analysis of individuals and groups, events and phenomena, long-term trends, short-term trends, institutions, societies and cultures. In fact, most historians use a variety of methodologies to create accounts and interpretations of virtually every subject imaginable, and often connect their studies to other fields both inside and outside of the social sciences. The value of studying history, of course, is that it helps us to understand who are today and where we came from. In addition, by studying we can develop an understanding of the human experience as lived by the various individuals and groups both inside and outside of our own societies.

2. We study history to learn how we got to where we are now; to learn what worked for people in the past; to learn not to make mistakes made in the past. Through this, we will be able to understand the reason behind the things that are happening around us now. It is important to know the past for us to be prepared for the future.

3. Migration Theory

The first migrants were what Beyer caked the “Dawnmen” (or “cavemen” because they lived in caves.). The Dawnmen resembled Java Man, Peking Man, and other Asian Home sapiens who existed about 250,000 years ago. They did not have any knowledge of agriculture, and lived by hunting and fishing. It was precisely in search of food that they came to the Philippines by way of the land bridges that connected the Philippines and Indonesia. Owing perhaps to their migratory nature, they eventually left the Philippines for destinations unknown.

The second group of migrants was composed of dark-skinned pygmies called “Aetas’ or “Negritoes”.About 30,000 years ago, they crossed the land bridged from Malaya, Borneo, and Australia until they reached Palawan, Mindoro and Mindanao. They were pygmies who went around practically naked and were good at hunting, fishing and food gathering. They used spears and small flint stones weapons.

The Aetas were already in the Philippines when the land bridges disappeared due to the thinning of the ice glaciers and the subsequent increase in seawater level. This natural events “forced” them to remain in the country and become its first permanent inhabitants.

Because of the disappearance of the land bridges, the third wave of migrants was necessarily skilled in seafaring. These were the Indonesians, who came to the islands in boats. They were more advanced than the Aetas in that: they had tools made out of stone and steel, which enabled them to build sturdier houses: they engaged in farming and mining, and used materials made of brass; they wore clothing and other body ornaments.

Last to migrate to the Philippines, according to Beyer, were Malays. They were believed to have come from Java, Sumatra, Borneo, and the Malay Peninsula more than 2,000 years ago. Like the Indonesians, they also traveled in boats.

The Malays were brown-skinned and of medium height, with straight black hair and flat noses. Their technology was said to be more advanced than that of their predecessors. They engaged in pottery, weaving, jewelry making and metal smelting, and introduced the irrigation system in rice planting.

1.The Philippines' aboriginal inhabitants arrived from the Asian mainland around 25,000 BC They were followed by waves of Indonesian and Malayan settlers from 3000 BC onward. By the 14th century AD , extensive trade was being conducted with India, Indonesia, China, and Japan.
2.because history has something to do with our future its have a lots of help for us especially guiding us for our future.
3.The Negritos are likely descendants of the indigenous populations of the Sunda landmass and New Guinea, predating the Mongoloid peoples who later entered Southeast Asia.[28] Multiple studies also show that Negritos from Southeast Asia to New Guinea share a closer cranial affinity with Australo-Melanesians.[28][29] They were the ancestors of such tribes of the Philippines as the Aeta, Agta, Ayta, Ati, Dumagat and other tribes of the Philippines, today making up .03% of the total Philippine population.

1.History (from Greek ἱστορία - historia, meaning "inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation"[2]) is the discovery, collection, organization, and presentation of information about past events. History can also mean the period of time after writing was invented.Amongst scholars, the fifth century BC Greek historian Herodotus is considered to be the "father of history", and, along with his contemporary Thucydides, forms the foundations for the modern study of history.

2.We study the history of the Philippines so that we can relate with the issues at the present. Also, we can appreciate the PAST of our heroes. We can connect the past of the Philippines to the present day.the study of phil. history is important in understanding the present.
by studying history,we will have an idea on how our world has been shaped by events in the past., we will also learn mistakes committed in the past which will serve as lessons for us at present.

3.A land bridge, in biogeography, is an isthmus or wider land connection between otherwise separate areas, which allows terrestrial animals and plants to cross over and colonise new lands. Land bridges can be created by marine regression, in which sea levels fall, exposing shallow, previously submerged sections of continental shelf; or when new land is created by plate tectonics; or occasionally when the sea floor rises due to post-glacial rebound after an ice age.
In the 19th century a number of scientists noted puzzling geological and zoological similarities between widely separated areas. To solve these problems, "…whenever geologists and paleontologists were at a loss to explain the obvious transoceanic similarities of life that they deduced from the fossil records, they sharpened their pencils and sketched land bridges between appropriate continents."[1] The concept was first proposed by Jules Marcou.

1. "HISTORY IS THE DISCOVERY, COLLECTION, ORGANIZATION, AND PRESENTATION OF INFORMATION ABOUT PAST EVENTS. HISTORY CAN ALSO MEAN THE PERIOD OF TIME AFTER WRITING WAS INVENTED. SCHOLARS WRITE ABOUT HISTORY ARE CALLED HISTORIANS. IT IS A FIELD OF RESEARCH WHICH USES A NARRATIVE TO EXAMINE AND ANALYSE THE SEQUENCE OF EVENTS, AND IT SOMETIMES ATTEMPTS TO INVESTIGATE OBJECTIVELY THE PATTERNS OF CAUSE AND EFFECT THAT DETERMINE EVENTS.HISTORIANS DEBATE THE NATURE OF HISTORY AND ITS USEFULNESS. THIS INCLUDES DISCUSSING THE STUDY OF THE DISCIPLINE AS AN END IN ITSELF AND AS A WAY OF PROVIDING 'PERSPECTIVE' ON THE PROBLEMS OF THE PRESENT. THE HISTORIES COMMON TO A PARTICULAR CULTURE, BUT NOT SUPPORTED BY EXTERNAL SOURCES (SUCH AS THE LEGENDS SURROUNDING KING ARTHUR) ARE USUALLY CLASSIFIED AS CULTURAL HERITAGE RATHER THAN THE 'DISINTERESTED INVESTIGATION'NEEDED BY THE DISCIPLINE OF HISTORY. EVENTS OF THE PAST PRIOR TO WRITTEN RECORD PREHISTORY."

"AMONGST SCHOLARS, THE FIFTH CENTURY BC GREEK HISTORIAN HERODOTUS IS CONSIDERED TO BE THE "FATHER OF HISTORY" AND, ALONG WITH HIS CONTEMPORARY THUCYDIDES, FORMS THE FOUNDATIONS FOR THE MODERN STUDY OF HISTORY. THEIR INFLUENCE, ALONG WITH OTHER HISTORICAL TRADITIONS IN OTHER PARTS OF THEIR WORLD, HAVE SPAWNED MANY DIFFERENT INTERPRETATIONS OF THE NATURE OF HISTORY WHICH HAS EVOLVED OVER THE CENTURIES AND ARE CONTINUING TO CHANGE. THE MODERN STUDY OF HISTORY HAS MANY DIFFERENT FIELDS INCLUDING THOSE THAT FOCUS ON CERTAIN REGIONS AND THOSE WHICH FOCUS ON CERTAIN TOPICAL OR THEMATICAL ELEMENTS OF HISTORICAL INVESTIGATION.

'IT WAS STILL IN THE GREEK SENSE THAT FRANCIS BACON USED THE TERM IN THE LATE 16TH CENTURY, WHEN HE WROTE ABOUT" NATURAL HISTORY." FOR HIM, HISTORIA WAS "THE KNOWLEDGE OF OBJECTS DETERMINED BY SPACE AND TIME", THAT SORT OF KNOWLEDGE PROVIDED BY MEMORY (WHILE SCIENCE WAS PROVIDED BY FANTASY).

THE WORD ENTERED THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE IN 1390 WITH THE MEANING OF "RELATION OF INCIDENTS, STORY". IN MIDDLE ENGLISH, THE MEANING WAS "STORY" IN GENERAL. THE RESTRICTION TO THE MEANING"RECORD OF PAST EVENTS" ARISES IN THE LATE 15TH CENTURY. IN GERMAN, FRENCH, AND MOST GERMANIC AND ROMANCE LANGUAGES, THE SAME WORD IS STILL USED TO MEAN BOTH "HISTORY" AND "STORY". THE ADJECTIVE HISTORICAL IS ATTESTED FROM 1661, AND HISTORIC FROM 1669.

3.The Filipino people are an ethnic group primarily located in the Philippines. There are about 92 million Filipinos in the Philippines,[18] and about 11 million living outside the Philippines.[19] Most Filipinos refer to themselves colloquially as "Pinoy" (feminine: "Pinay"), which is a slang word formed by taking the last four letters of "Pilipino" and adding the diminutive suffix "-y". The lack of the letter "F" in the pre-1987 Philippine alphabet, Abakada, had caused the letter "F" to be substituted with "P". This is why, when the 28-letter modern Filipino alphabet was made official in 1987, the name Filipino was preferred over Pilipino. The name Filipino was chosen by the Spanish explorer Ruy López de Villalobos, who named the islands "las Islas Filipinas" ("the Philippine Islands") after Philip II of Spain.[20]

by studying why people fight and have wars, we can try to prevent fighting and end war
by studying how things have already been done, we can try new and better ways of doing things
by studying other beliefs, we can learn to appreciate every person's ideas and to value our own opinions
by studying how people have adapted to different environments on Earth, we can plan how to adapt to new environments, and maybe eventually plan how to survive off planet

2.Practically, studying philippine history will help you understand the culture that filipinos have today. For example, why filipinos think so highly of the americans. i had an experience while i was walking on a street. there was a white guy who passed by on the other street and kids playing around started yelling, "Hey joe! hey joe!". That's all they could say to the white guy. It is because the kids are shy and could only talk to him at a far enough distance. You will learn why that is in phil. history! Also, u will learn the martial law era and people power. You'll see how people were committed to voice out their opinion. That and all other great things... if u want to learn phil. history
3.The Aetas

The Aetas or Negritoes were the first group of people who came to the Philippines through the land bridges. They were small, about four feet tall. They had dark skin, flat noses, thick lips and black kinky hair. They used bows and arrows as weapons. They used &yes and barks of trees for their clothing.

The Aetas were a wandering people. They had no permanent home. Most of them lived in caves at the mountainsides. Sometimes, they made temporary shelter made of twigs and leaves of trees. They moved from one place to another to get food. They gathered fruits, root crops and edible plants around.

The descendants of the Aetas can still be found in the mountains of Luzon, Mindanao, Panay, Mindoro and Palawan. They are sometimes called Ita, Baluga, Agta or Ati.

1. History-[iotopia-historia] means discovery, colletion, organization and presentation of information about past event.It is come from root[wied means know or see].It was Francis Bacon who used the term in late 16th century, when he wrote about natural history.For him history was the knowledge of object determind by space and time.

2. To learned Philippines history is very important because it shows us what past people done to their lives and for the nation and knowing the significant why our heroes fight against foreigners. By learning this, we will know who we are, what to do ang where to go.
After knowing the history it deeply rooted to my mind that anything from foreigners is the reason why our identity as filipinos was distroy. However, by continued studying the history can help alot to remind and incourage us to have a good sense of nationalism to our heart and mind from generation to generation.

3. Migrant theory
The first migrant were what Bayer's caked " downmen" or cavemen. The Downmen resembled Java man, Peking man, and other Asian Homo Sapiens who existed about 25,000 years ago. They did not have any knowldge of agriculture. They live only by hunting and fishing. They came in the Philippines by way of the land bridge connected from Indonesia. The second group was Aeta or Negritoes by croosing the land bridge from Malaya, Borneo and Australia until they rich Palawan, Mindoro and Mindanao. They were Pygmies who wear nothing or naked, but tey are very good for hunting, fishing and food gathering.

1.The word history comes from the root *weid- "know" or "see
history, in its broadest sense, is the story of humanity's past. It also refers to the recording of that past. The diverse sources of history include books, newspapers, printed documents, personal papers, and other archival records, artifacts, and oral accounts.

2. We need to study Philippine history to know how we gained our freedom and who are the people who made it happened. We also need to study who colonized our dear nation. It is the history that tells us the ordeals that our ancestors had suffered as well as their triumph.

3.Land bridge theory-
Before the theory of plate tectonics, it was believed that land bridges could explain the occurrence of species in separate continents and the resemblances of geologic formations on different continents. Many land bridges were hypothesized, criss-crossing large areas of ocean, the most prominent of them being Lemuria. However, when the sea bed of the Atlantic Ocean was mapped using echo sounding between 1924 and 1927, no remains of land bridges could be found. Though this was a strong argument for Alfred Wegener's theory of continental drift, it would take about 50 more years until mainstream geology fully acknowledged the motion of continents.

1.The word history comes from the root weid- "know" or "see".
Ancient Greek iotopia means "inquiry" or "knowledge from inquiry", from (hístor) "judge" (from the Proto-Indo-European agent wid-tor: "one who knows").It was in that sense that Aristotle used the word in his iotopia. The ancestor word is attested early on in Homeric Hymns, Heraclitus, the Athenian ephebes' oath, and in Boiotic inscriptions (in a legal sense, either "judge" or "witness", or similar).
It was still in the Greek sense that Francis Bacon used the term in the late 16th century, when he wrote about "Natural History". For him, historia was "the knowledge of objects determined by space and time", that sort of knowledge provided by memory.

2.To study of phil. history is important in understanding the present.
by studying history,we will have an idea on how our world has been shaped by events in the past., we will also learn mistakes committed in the past which will serve as lessons for us at present,and because of studying phil. history we can see the early lifestyle of our forefathers, like, on how they live and survive without our technologist? Filipinos in turn welcomed de la Torre warmly, held a "liberty parade" to celebrate the adoption of the liberal 1869 Spanish constitution, and established a reform committee to lay the foundations of a new order. Prominent among de la Torre's supporters in Manila were professional and business leaders of the ilustrado community and, perhaps more significantly, Filipino secular priests. These included the learned Father Jose Burgos, a Spanish mestizo, who had published a pamphlet, Manifesto to the Noble Spanish Nation, criticizing those racially prejudiced Spanish who barred Filipinos from the priesthood and government service. For a brief time, the tide seemed to be turning against the friars. In December 1870, the archbishop of Manila, Gregorio Meliton Martinez, wrote to the Spanish regent advocating secularization and warning that discrimination against Filipino priests would encourage anti-Spanish sentiments.

3.There are several theories given by scientists as to the origin of the Filipinos. One of these theories explains that the Philippines was once inhabited by the Tabon men who resembled the Java men and who lived about 250,000 years ago. These people lived in caves and used stones as tools for gathering food.A famous American archaeologist, three waves of people came to the Philippines from the Asian peninsula. These were the Aetas, Indonesians and Malays.

1.history-(itopia-historia)comes from the greek word "inquiry" means knowledge acquired by investigation is the discovery, collection, organization, and presentation of information about past events. History can also mean the period of time after writing was invented. Scholars who write about history are called historians. It is a field of research which uses a narrative to examine and analyse the sequence of events, and it sometimes attempts to investigate objectively the patterns of cause and effect that determine events. Historians debate the nature of history and its usefulness. This includes discussing the study of the discipline as an end in itself and as a way of providing "perspective" on the problems of the present. The stories common to a particular culture, but not supported by external sources (such as the legends surrounding King Arthur) are usually classified as cultural heritage rather than the "disinterested investigation" needed by the discipline of history. Events of the past prior to written record are considered prehistory.


2. By studying History we will have an idea on how our world has shaped by events in the past, we will also learn mistakes committed in the past which will serve as lesson for us at present.And we need to study this to gained more freedom in our country not only for our country but also for our selves


3.MIGRATION THEORY
-This is the first migrant caked the "dawnmen" or "cavedmen" because they lived in cave.
Migration Theory is the belief that during the ice age people from the areas of Mongolia, China, Russia, etc..Migrated to the Northeast traveled over the Landbridge of the bering strait and to proceeded to down into Canada and further in South into North America, Mexico and then to South America. they did al of this in search of warmer climate and new food sources, and that is a theory on how the Native Americans, Aztecs, Incans, Mayans, Olmecs, etc.. all came to be in the North South America's.

1. Trace the history/ development the word history. Where did it come from? Who coined the term?

Answers:
The word history comes from the root *weid- "know" or "see".
Ancient Greek ἱστορία means "inquiry" or "knowledge from inquiry", from ἵστωρ(hístōr) "judge" (from the Proto-Indo-European agent noun *wid-tor: "one who knows").[10]It was in that sense that Aristotle used the word in his Περὶ Τὰ Ζῷα Ἱστορίαι (Perì Tà Zôa Ηistoríai "Inquiries about Animals"). The ancestor word ἵστωρ is attested early on inHomeric Hymns, Heraclitus, the Athenian ephebes' oath, and in Boiotic inscriptions (in a legal sense, either "judge" or "witness", or similar).
The word entered the English language in 1390 with the meaning of "relation of incidents, story". In German, French, and most Germanic and Romance languages, the same word is still used to mean both "history" and "story". Historian in the sense of a "researcher of history" is attested from 1531.


2. Why do we need to study Philippine History? What is the significance of history in the development of national consciousness of the Filipino nation?

We study the history of the Philippine so that we can relate with the issues at the present. Also, we can appreciate the past of our heroes we can connect the past of the Philippine to the present day.

3. Select one theory on the origin the Filipinos.
Answer: Continental drift Theory

Who is the proponent of your selected theory.
Answer: Alfred Weneger is the proponent or author of the Continental Drift Theory.

Discuss the Details:
Answer:

Continental drift is the movement of the Earth's continents relative to each other.
The continental drift theory is the theory that once all the continents were joined in a super-continent, which scientists call Pangaea. Over a vast period of time, the continents drifted apart to their current locations. Alfred Wegener first supported continental drift.
Wegener’s explanation of continental drift in 1912 was that drifting occurred because of the earth’s rotation. This explanation and his theory were not widely accepted.
Several factors point to the change in accepting the continental drift theory.
Fossil records from separate continents, particularly on the outskirts of continents show the same species. As well mineral specimens along the supposed break lines of the continents are nearly identical. Some identical species exist on certain continents, like an earthworm common to both Africa and South America suggesting the species could not have spontaneously arisen on both continents without some variations.

the third wave of migrants was necessarily skilled in seafaring. These were the Indonesians, who came to the islands in boats. They were more advanced than the Aetas in that: they had tools made out of stone and steel, which enabled them to build sturdier houses: they engaged in farming and mining, and used materials made of brass; they wore clothing and other body ornaments.
Last to migrate to the Philippines, according to Beyer, were Malays. They were believed to have come from Java, Sumatra, Borneo, and the Malay Peninsula more than 2,000 years ago. Like the Indonesians, they also traveled in boats.
The Malays were brown-skinned and of medium height, with straight black hair and flat noses. Their technology was said to be more advanced than that of their predecessors. They engaged in pottery, weaving, jewelry making and metal smelting, and introduced the irrigation system in rice planting.

3).Theory on Dinosaurs and Volcanic Activity
HENRY FOUNTAIN
Detail
An asteroid or comet impact gets most of the credit for the event that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. But massive volcanic activity around the same time might have played a role, too, by pumping enormous amounts of gases containing sulfur and chlorine into the atmosphere.
An analysis by Stephen Self of the Open University in Milton Keynes, England, and colleagues lends new support to that idea. By looking at tiny bits of glass that formed inside the lava flows, they’ve been able to reconstruct how much sulfur and chlorine were released.

The volcanic activity over thousands of years produced a flood of lava, now known as the Deccan Trapps, that is thousands of feet thick over thousands of square miles of central India. The researchers’ analysis, reported in Science, suggests the eruption could have produced on the order of 30 billion pounds of sulfur dioxide and 9 billion pounds of hydrogen chloride for each cubic mile of lava.

On an annual basis, the researchers say, the amount of SO2 released was at least 10 times greater than the current amount released by worldwide volcanic activity. The environmental impact of that much gas, they add, was probably severe.

3)An Overseas Filipino is a person of Philippine origin who lives outside of the Philippines. This term applies both to people of Filipino ancestry who are citizens or residents of a different country and to those Filipino citizens abroad on a more temporary status.

Most overseas Filipinos migrate to other nations to find employment or support their families in the Philippines. As a result of this migration, many countries have substantial Filipino communities.

Often, these Filipinos are referred to as Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs). The term "Global Filipino" is another word of more recent vintage but less widely used.

3.JOCANOS'S THEORY
- In 1962, a skullcap and a portion of a jaw-presumed to be a human origin-were found in the Tabon Caves of Palawan by archaeologist Robert Fox and Manuel Santiago, who both worked for the National Museum. Carbon dating placed their age at 21,000 to 22,000 years. This proves, Jocano argues, that man came earlier to the Philippines than to the Malay Peninsula; therefore, the first inhabitants of our islands could not have come from the region. The “Tabon Man” is said to resemble Java Man and Peking Man. He gathered fruits, leaves and plants for his food. He hunted with weapons made of stone. Although further research is still being done on his life and culture, evidence shows that he was already capable of using his brain in order to survive and keep himself safe.

1.Earlier times for which no such sources exist are known as PREHISTORY. history is a branch of knowledge is generally confined to the written records of human activities, which limits its scope to the invention of writing, about 5000 years ago. The conscious writing of history is generally considered to have begun in Greece about 5th century b.c with Herodotus description of the wars between Greece and Persia. What made his work history was his conscious attempt to record events of importance and to set forth the motivations of the people involved. This causal approach to events of the past earned Herodotus the title "Father of History" .

2.We need to study Philippine history because from this subject, we can get some information about what happened in past. And the significance of this subject are, we become curious, about what happened in such olden time. Maybe at some point, we asked this questions to ourselves, from where is our country/Philippines came from ? and how it formed? how is the lifestyle of Filipinos before. We also become curious about what race we are came from By that question, we can easily think that all this particular question is related to Philippine history. That’s why studying this subject is the key for our consciousness.

JOCANO’S THEORY:


3.The anthropologist who Focus and study this is Felipe Landa Jocano he didn’t agree for what beyer’s theory say that the first people who enter our country are the the negritoes. The only thing that can positively concluded from fossil evidence is ecxept from Philippines . Negritoes also went to New Guinea, java Borneo and Australia.
A skullcap that found by Archaeologist Robert Fox and Manuel Santiago in Tabon only shown that man came earlier here in Philippines than Malay Peninsula. The “Tabon Man” is resemble to JAVA MAN and PEKING MAN that are living through gathering food and haunted stone for their safety. Jocano’s also say that this man are already using their brains, in order them to survive and safe.
Jocano’s Also believes that the first people of southeast Asia were product of long process of evolution and migration and His Research Indicates that they share more or less CULTURE,BELIEFS and PRACTICES. This eventually people went separately some are migrated to Philippines and some are went to other near places such as NEW GUINEA and BORNEO. Jocano’s also tell that this people only found in Fossils Discovered in different part of south east asia as well as the recorded migrations of other peoples from the Asian mainland when history began to unfold.

But, in addition, the historical narrative also encompasses the arguments used by the historian to establish cause-and-effect relationships between past events.
2. Studying the Philippine History is a thing that Filipino should know and recognize because if we don't study, we will not know the significance and what was the kind of Civilization we have in the past years. And we could not know the significance of our Nation.
3.We have 2 Theories named the “Migration Theory and “Jocano History” by Mr. Henry Bayer. Migration Theory is those people who are migrating in other location. Like the “Dawnmen” or the cavemen because they live in cave. Those cavemen are the “JAVA MAN and PEKING MAN” and other Asian Homosapiens.
According to Mr. Felipe Landa Jocano
The Renowned Filipino anthropologist Felipe Landa Jocano disputes Beyer’s belief that Filipinos descended from Negritoes and Malays who migrated to the Philippines thousands of years ago. According to Jocano, it is difficult to prove that Negritoes were the first inhabitants of this country. The only thing that can positively concluded from fossil evidence, he says is that the first men who came to the Philippines also went to New Guinea, Java, Borneo, and Australia.

History can also mean the period of time after writing was invented. Scholars who write about history are called historians. It is a field of research which uses a narrative to examine and analyse the sequence of events, and it sometimes attempts to investigate objectively the patterns of cause and effect that determine events.[3][4] Historians debate the nature of history and its usefulness. This includes discussing the study of the discipline as an end in itself and as a way of providing "perspective" on the problems of the present.[3][5][6][7] The stories common to a particular culture, but not supported by external sources (such as the legends surrounding King Arthur) are usually classified as cultural heritage rather than the "disinterested investigation" needed by the discipline of history.[8][9] Events of the past prior to written record are considered prehistory.

Amongst scholars, the fifth century BC Greek historian Herodotus is considered to be the "father of history", and, along with his contemporary Thucydides, forms the foundations for the modern study of history. Their influence, along with other historical traditions in other parts of their world, have spawned many different interpretations of the nature of history which has evolved over the centuries and are continuing to change. The modern study of history has many different fields including those that focus on certain regions and those which focus on certain topical or thematical elements of historical investigation. Often history is taught as part of primary and secondary education, and the academic study of history is a major discipline in University studies.

Detail:
An asteroid or comet impact gets most of the credit for the event that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. But massive volcanic activity around the same time might have played a role, too, by pumping enormous amounts of gases containing sulfur and chlorine into the atmosphere.
An analysis by Stephen Self of the Open University in Milton Keynes, England, and colleagues lends new support to that idea. By looking at tiny bits of glass that formed inside the lava flows, they’ve been able to reconstruct how much sulfur and chlorine were released.

The volcanic activity over thousands of years produced a flood of lava, now known as the Deccan Trapps, that is thousands of feet thick over thousands of square miles of central India. The researchers’ analysis, reported in Science, suggests the eruption could have produced on the order of 30 billion pounds of sulfur dioxide and 9 billion pounds of hydrogen chloride for each cubic mile of lava.

On an annual basis, the researchers say, the amount of SO2 released was at least 10 times greater than the current amount released by worldwide volcanic activity. The environmental impact of that much gas, they add, was probably severe.

2. it will guide us to the future so that we will understand why it was happenning ..
3. Migration Theory

The first migrants were what Beyer caked the “Dawnmen” (or “cavemen” because they lived in caves.). The Dawnmen resembled Java Man, Peking Man, and other Asian Home sapiens who existed about 250,000 years ago. They did not have any knowledge of agriculture, and lived by hunting and fishing. It was precisely in search of food that they came to the Philippines by way of the land bridges that connected the Philippines and Indonesia. Owing perhaps to their migratory nature, they eventually left the Philippines for destinations unknown.The second group of migrants was composed of dark-skinned pygmies called “Aetas’ or “Negritoes”.About 30,000 years ago, they crossed the land bridged from Malaya, Borneo, and Australia until they reached Palawan, Mindoro and Mindanao. They were pygmies who went around practically naked and were good at hunting, fishing and food gathering. They used spears and small flint stones weapons.The Aetas were already in the Philippines when the land bridges disappeared due to the thinning of the ice glaciers and the subsequent increase in seawater level. This natural events “forced” them to remain in the country and become its first permanent inhabitants.Because of the disappearance of the land bridges, the third wave of migrants was necessarily skilled in seafaring. These were the Indonesians, who came to the islands in boats. They were more advanced than the Aetas in that: they had tools made out of stone and steel, which enabled them to build sturdier houses: they engaged in farming and mining, and used materials made of brass; they wore clothing and other body ornaments.

Last to migrate to the Philippines, according to Beyer, were Malays. They were believed to have come from Java, Sumatra, Borneo, and the Malay Peninsula more than 2,000 years ago. Like the Indonesians, they also traveled in boats.

The Malays were brown-skinned and of medium height, with straight black hair and flat noses. Their technology was said to be more advanced than that of their predecessors. They engaged in pottery, weaving, jewelry making and metal smelting, and introduced the irrigation system in rice planting.

1.) Earlier times for which no such sources exist are known as PREHISTORY. history is a branch of knowledge is generally confined to the written records of human activities, which limits its scope to the invention of writing, about 5000 years ago. The conscious writing of history is generally considered to have begun in Greece about 5th century b.c with Herodotus description of the wars between Greece and Persia. What made his work history was his conscious attempt to record events of importance and to set forth the motivations of the people involved. This causal approach to events of the past earned Herodotus the title “ Father of History “ .

2.) We need to study Philippine history because from this subject, we can get some information about what happened in past. And the significance of this subject are, we become curious, about what happened in such olden time. Maybe at some point, we asked this questions to ourselves, from where is our country/Philippines came from ? and how it formed? how is the lifestyle of Filipinos before. We also become curious about what race we are came from By that question, we can easily think that all this particular question is related to Philippine history. That’s why studying this subject is the key for our consciousness.

This eventually people went separately some are migrated to Philippines and some are went to other near places such as NEW GUINEA and BORNEO. Jocano’s also tell that this people only found in Fossils Discovered in different part of south east asia as well as the recorded migrations of other peoples from the Asian mainland when history began to unfold.

1.History tells us about the people, places and events of the past, arranged in chronological order.It tells us about our ancestors - their lifestyles, occupations, customs and traditions, religious beliefs, social and political systems and cultural patterns. it also tells us about their problems, aspirations as well as their achievements.The word 'history' comes from Latin and meant 'story. or in Greek word "historia" meaning an inquiry, or knowledge acquired by investigation.

2.we need to study the Philippine History because it allows us to benefit from previous experiences and advance positively from it. History shows that the world as one sees now is not the same as it was centuries or even decades ago. Every society learns from the past and makes adjustments to improve.

3.Land bridge theory
Before the theory of plate tectonics, it was believed that land bridges could explain the occurrence of species in separate continents and the resemblances of geologic formations on different continents. Many land bridges were hypothesized, criss-crossing large areas of ocean, the most prominent of them being Lemuria. However, when the sea bed of the Atlantic Ocean was mapped using echo sounding between 1924 and 1927, no remains of land bridges could be found. Though this was a strong argument for Alfred Wegener's theory of continental drift, it would take about 50 more years until mainstream geology fully acknowledged the motion of continents.

3.Jocano’s Theory

Renowned Filipino anthropologist Felipe Landa Jocano disputes Beyer’s belief that Filipinos descended from Negritoes and Malays who migrated to the Philippines thousands of years ago. According to Jocano, it is difficult to prove that Negritoes were the first inhabitants of this country. The only thing that can positively concluded from fossil evidence, he says is that the first men who came to the Philippines also went to New Guinea, Java, Borneo, and Australia.

In 1962, a skullcap and a portion of a jaw-presumed to be a human origin-were found in the Tabon Caves of Palawan by archaeologist Robert Fox and Manuel Santiago, who both worked for the National Museum. Carbon dating placed their age at 21,000 to 22,000 years. This proves, Jocano argues, that man came earlier to the Philippines than to the Malay Peninsula; therefore, the first inhabitants of our islands could not have come from the region. The “Tabon Man” is said to resemble Java Man and Peking Man. He gathered fruits, leaves and plants for his food. He hunted with weapons made of stone. Although further research is still being done on his life and culture, evidence shows that he was already capable of using his brain in order to survive and keep himself safe.

Instead of the Migration Theory, Jocano advances the Evolution Theory, as a better explanation of how our country was first inhabited by human beings, Jocano believes that the first people of Southeast Asia were products of a long process of evolution and migration. His research indicates that they shared more or less the same culture, beliefs, practices an even similar tools and implements. These people eventually went their separate ways; some migrated to the Philippines, the others to New Guinea, Java and Borneo. Proof, Jocano says, can be found in the fossils discovered in different parts of Southeast Asia, as well as the recorded migrations of other peoples from the Asian mainland when history began to unfold.

2.)Early History -The Negritos are believed to have migrated to the Philippines some 30,000 years ago from Borneo, Sumatra, and Malaya. The Malayans followed in successive waves. These people belonged to a primitive epoch of Malayan culture, which has apparently survived to this day among certain groups such as the Igorots. The Malayan tribes that came later had more highly developed material cultures.

1.History – comes from the greek word historia. It means inquiry or it is the discovery, collection, organization and presentation of information about past events.
-the word history comes from the root “know” or “see”. It was still in the greek sense that Francis Bacon used the term in the late 16th century, when he wrote about “natural history”, for him, historia was “the knowledge of objects determined by space and time. That sort of knowledge provided by memory.


2.We need to study Philippine History because it shows us what past people did correctly and not so correctly. We do not want to repeat their mistakes, which we can avoid by learning about what they were. Also, it will make every Filipino to become patriotic and understand the great deeds of our heroes, both known and unknown. It will make Filipinos to be proud.

The significance of history in the development of national consciousness of the Filipino nation is to know the importance of why our heroes fight for the freedom against the dominant foreigners. History provides the backbone on which most of today’s theories and subjects are supported. Be it general science,language or social sciences, all subjects are based on their history and studies by the pioneers throughout the ages.


3.One theory that I selected about the origin of the Filipinos is about Negritos. They were the first group of people who came to the Philippines through the land bridges. They were small, only about four feet tall. They had dark skin, flat noses, thick lips and black kinky hair. They used bows and arrows as weapons. They used bark or trees for their clothing. Negritos were a wondering people. They had no permanent home. Most of them lived in caves at the mountain sides. Sometimes, they made temporary shelter made of twigs and leaves of trees. They moved from one place to another to get food. They gathered fruits, rootcrops and edible plants around. The family of the Negritos can still be found in the mountains of Luzon, Mindanao, Panay, Mindoro and Palawan. They are sometimes called Ita, Baluga, Aeta or Ati.
Aeta or negritos according to anthropologists and archeologists, are descendants of the earliest settlers of the Philippines. They were predicted to migrate in the country through land bridges that connects the country to Asian mainland 30,000 years ago. It may have occurred when the Malay Peninsula was still connected with Sumatra and other Sunda Islands. Their boundless journey around the Malay Peninsula that spread as far as The Philippines resulted to their widespread existence in the country. This is evident from the failed attempt of the Spaniards to settle them in one area.

3.Many historians and scientists believe that the first inhabitants of the Philippine islands emerged during the Pleistocene period. There are two theories on where the inhabitants (first Filipinos) came from namely: Beyer’s “Migration Theory” and Jocano’s “Evolution Theory”. Noted social scientist Henry Otley Beyer believes that Filipinos descended from different groups that came from Southeast Asia in successive waves of migration. Each group had a distinct culture, with it’s own customs and traditions. While Jocano believes that Asians, including Filipinos are the result of a lengthy process of evolution and migration.there examples are:

Migration Theory

The Dawnmen resembled Java Man, Peking Man, and other Asian Home sapiens who existed about 250,000 years ago. They did not have any knowledge of agriculture, and lived by hunting and fishing.

Owing perhaps to their migratory nature, they eventually left the Philippines for destinations unknown.

Jocano’s Theory
Renowned Filipino anthropologist Felipe Landa Jocano disputes Beyer’s belief that Filipinos descended from Negritoes and Malays who migrated to the Philippines thousands of years ago. According to Jocano, it is difficult to prove that Negritoes were the first inhabitants of this country. The only thing that can positively concluded from fossil evidence, he says is that the first men who came to the Philippines also went to New Guinea, Java, Borneo, and Australia.

3.land bridge colonization theory applies to many regions in the world, including the philippines and australia, where areas have been colonised before the invention of boats and the mastery of seacraft.

land bridges occur during ice ages, when the sea levels decline due to the water being drawn into enlarged polar ice caps. this allowed humans to walk to regions across areas that are now submerged underwater.

If we have a lot of knowledge about our history we are more aware and conscious for our nation. We will become more nationalistic.

3. The first flipinos(MIGRATION THEORY) by Social Scientist Henry Otley Beyer . The first people who were migrants were called the "dawnmen" or "cavemen". They do not have enough knowledge in agriculture. They come from indonesia and landed here in philippines by bridges. The second group were called "Aetas" or "negritos". This group live by fishing, hunting and food gathering. They came from Malaya, Borneo, and Australia and they landed here in the philippines by bridge also. And the last migrants were called "malays". Their technology is more advance than the predecessors.

Trace the history/development of the word HISTORY. Where did it come from? Who coined the term?
Answer :History (from Greek ἱστορία - historia, meaning "inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation"[2]) is the discovery, collection, organization, and presentation of information about past events. History can also mean the period of time after writing was invented. Scholars who write about history are called historians.
2. Why do we need to study PHILIPPINE HISTORY? What is the significance of history in the development of national consciousness of the Filipino nation?
Answer:
Because it will guide you for the future.
3. Select one theory on the origin of the Filipinos. Who is the proponent of your selected theory? Discuss the details.
Answer: Many historians and scientists believe that the first inhabitants of the Philippine islands emerged during the Pleistocene period. There are two theories on where the inhabitants (first Filipinos) came from namely: Beyer’s “Migration Theory” and Jocano’s “Evolution Theory”. Noted social scientist Henry Otley Beyer believes that Filipinos descended from different groups that came from Southeast Asia in successive waves of migration. Each group had a distinct culture, with it’s own customs and traditions. While Jocano believes that Asians, including Filipinos are the result of a lengthy process of evolution and migration.

1. HISTORY (from Greek ἱστορία - historia, meaning "inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation” is the discovery, collection, organization, and presentation of information about past events. History can also mean the period of time after writing was invented. Scholars who write about history are called historians. It is a field of research which uses a narrative to examine and analyze the sequence of events, and it sometimes attempts to investigate objectively the patterns of cause and effect that determine events. Amongst scholars, the fifth century BC Greek historian Herodotus is considered to be the "father of history", and, along with his contemporary Thucydides, forms the foundations for the modern study of history. Their influence, along with other historical traditions in other parts of their world, has spawned many different interpretations of the natures of histories which has evolved over the centuries and are continuing to change. The modern study of history has many different fields including those that focus on certain regions and those which focus on certain topical or thematical elements of historical investigation. Often history is taught as part of primary and secondary education, and the academic study of history is a major discipline in University studies.

2. WE NEED TO STUDY PHILIPPINE HISTORY to know about the memory of the past experience of our mother Philippine and the ancient people, the culture, economic , politics in the past and to know the details and information on how we apply all of this in the modern world. The significance of history in the development of national consciousness of Filipino nation is; history is the key of everything we have already achieved today, and without history we cannot gain knowledge, details and information.


3. MIGRATION THEORY
The first migrants were what Beyer caked the “Dawnmen” (or “cavemen” because they lived in caves.). The Dawnmen resembled Java Man, Peking Man, and other Asian Home sapiens who existed about 250,000 years ago. They did not have any knowledge of agriculture, and lived by hunting and fishing. It was precisely in search of food that they came to the Philippines by way of the land bridges that connected the Philippines and Indonesia. Owing perhaps to their migratory nature, they eventually left the Philippines for destinations unknown. The second group of migrants was composed of dark-skinned pygmies called “Aetas’ or “Negritoes”. About 30,000 years ago, they crossed the land bridged from Malaya, Borneo, and Australia until they reached Palawan, Mindoro and Mindanao. They were pygmies who went around practically naked and were good at hunting, fishing and food gathering.

2.We need to study Philippine history
to know the changes (e.g in government,in culture and so on.)before and after we've been colonized by Spaniards and many more.
>> The Philippines now made a big changes because of what had happened at the past specially in government

3. The Ilocano or Ilokano people are the third largest Filipino ethnolinguistic group. Aside from being referred to as Ilocanos, from "i"-from, and "looc"-bay, they also refer to themselves as Samtoy, from the Ilocano phrase "sao mi ditoy", meaning 'our language here.' The word "Ilocano" came from the word "Iloco" or "Yloco."

1.Trace the history/development of the word HISTORY. Where did it come from? Who coined the term?
Answer: Ancient Egypt started around 3150 BC. It is a time known marked by pharaohs, pyramids, gods and goddesses, science, math, and art. This era ended when Egypt was conquered by the Roman empire in 31 BC. The term History is intended here loosely, to cover material on philosophers and their works.

2. Why do we need to study PHILIPPINE HISTORY? What is the significance of history in the development of national consciousness of the Filipino nation?
Answer: Because more Pilipino people are forgotten the history of our heroes like DR. JOSE RIZAL, he wrote the Noli me Tangere and el Filibustirismo.

3. Select one theory on the origin of the Filipinos. Who is the proponent of your selected theory? Discuss the details?
Answer: Philippines was once a part of Eurasia Plate that time we are still connected with China by the Land Bridges, as time pass by and earthquake and sea level rises these Land Bridges was sunken by the sea. As you can see in the map Batanes group of island looks like connected to Taiwan this where part of Land Bridges before. Earthquakes and plate tectonic form our land masses, the reason why we got a 7,000+ islands is we are located in the Pacific Ring of Fire which is for thousands of years we always experienced a number of strong and moderate earthquake that causes some undersea landslide and separating land masses. Same also with the case of Japan, Indonesia, Northern Mariana Islands and Aleutian Island in Alaska.

1.history was derived from the greek word which means "Historia" which can be define as a chronological record of events,as of the life or development of a people or institution from the past that is preserved and in written form

2. studying history helps us to deeply understand our origins and helps us become a good citizen of the country because Nationalism will be develop on us,. in addition to that, studying history could prevent us from doing the same mistakes that our ancestors have done in the earlier times.

3.evolution theory
Anthropologist F. Landa Jocano of the University of the Philippines contends that what fossil evidence of ancient men show is that they not only migrated to the Philippines, but also to New Guinea, Borneo, and Australia. He says that there is no way of determining if they were Negritos at all. However, what is sure is that there is evidence the Philippines was inhabited as early as 21,000 or 22,000 years ago. In 1962, a skull cap and a portion of a jaw, presumed to be those of a human being, were found in a Tabon Cave in Palawan. The discovery may show that man came earlier to the Philippines than to the Malay Peninsula. If this is true, the first inhabitants of the Philippines did not come from the Malay Peninsula. Jocano further believes that the present Filipinos are products of the long process of evolution and movement of people. This not only holds true for Filipinos, but for the Indonesians and the Malays of Malaysia, as well. No group among the three is culturally or racially dominant. Hence, Jocano says that it is not correct to attribute the Filipino culture as being Malayan in orientation. According to Jocano's findings, the people of the prehistoric islands of Southeast Asia were of the same population as the combination of human evolution that occurred in the islands of Southeast Asia about 1.9 million years ago.

In 1962, a skullcap and a portion of a jaw-presumed to be a human origin-were found in the Tabon Caves of Palawan by archaeologist Robert Fox and Manuel Santiago, who both worked for the National Museum. Carbon dating placed their age at 21,000 to 22,000 years. This proves, Jocano argues, that man came earlier to the Philippines than to the Malay Peninsula; therefore, the first inhabitants of our islands could not have come from the region. The “Tabon Man” is said to resemble Java Man and Peking Man. He gathered fruits, leaves and plants for his food. He hunted with weapons made of stone. Although further research is still being done on his life and culture, evidence shows that he was already capable of using his brain in order to survive and keep himself safe.

Instead of the Migration Theory, Jocano advances the Evolution Theory, as a better explanation of how our country was first inhabited by human beings, Jocano believes that the first people of Southeast Asia were products of a long process of evolution and migration. His research indicates that they shared more or less the same culture, beliefs, practices an even similar tools and implements. These people eventually went their separate ways; some migrated to the Philippines, the others to New Guinea, Java and Borneo. Proof, Jocano says, can be found in the fossils discovered in different parts of Southeast Asia, as well as the recorded migrations of other peoples from the Asian mainland when history began to unfold.

We need to study Philippine History:

• In order us to know the significance of why our heroes fight for the freedom against the dominant foreigners.
• To understand where our country is heading, we have to understand the past because decisions made in the past influences the decisions made today.

• Indeed, Philippine History is such a boring subject to learn in school. Who cares if I don’t know what occured before and what the people have done before that we should owe. Right? But Iv’e fully realized that the subject is not just a subject to take for completing a course in college nor a pre-requisite in proceeding to next semester. It’s a matter of how we understand the history and culture of the Philippines for we are inhabitants of this land and we are the one, the Filipinos, who are liable for taking care of this country because we are products of Philippine history.

The Aetas were already in the Philippines when the land bridges disappeared due to the thinning of the ice glaciers and the subsequent increase in seawater level. This natural events “forced” them to remain in the country and become its first permanent inhabitants.

Because of the disappearance of the land bridges, the third wave of migrants was necessarily skilled in seafaring. These were the Indonesians, who came to the islands in boats. They were more advanced than the Aetas in that: they had tools made out of stone and steel, which enabled them to build sturdier houses: they engaged in farming and mining, and used materials made of brass; they wore clothing and other body ornaments.

We need to study philippine history:
1) in order to understand the culture.
2) because it would be interesting to pass where the Philippines went through.
3) because "Past politics is present history"
4) in order to appreciate the richness and diversity of civilization in different times.
5) to love our country with pride.
We need to study the history of a certain country to understand it's customs, people, and culture.
As students we need to study the history of our country to understand or to even know what the people of the past centuries has done to make or brake it. The most intriguing part for "me" about studying the nature of a certain country is it's politics and government, a certain rule of a president, and how the people reacted to their reign as politicians.

Last to migrate to the Philippines, according to Beyer, were Malays. They were believed to have come from Java, Sumatra, Borneo, and the Malay Peninsula more than 2,000 years ago. Like the Indonesians, they also traveled in boats.The Malays were brown-skinned and of medium height, with straight black hair and flat noses. Their technology was said to be more advanced than that of their predecessors. They engaged in pottery, weaving, jewelry making and metal smelting, and introduced the irrigation system in rice planting.

3.VOLCANIC THEORY
An asteriod or comet impact get most of the credit for the event that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.But massive volcanic activity around the same time might have played a role too by pluming enormous amounts of gasses containing sulfur and chlorine into the atmosphere.
The volcanic activity over thousands of years produced a flood of lava now known a DECCAN TRAPPS that is thousand of feet thick over thousand of square miles of central india.The researchers analysis reported in Science suggest the eruption could have produced on the order of 30 billion pounds of sulfur dioxide and 9 million pounds of hydogen chloride for each mile of lava.
