When asked about the challenges they faced in the course of making the books, Orillana and

Picardal stated that their heavy teaching load and resonsibilities at home were their toughest

obstacles in the proces.

“i’m very happy of course that i was able to co-author a book together with other teachers from the

visayas area… there might have been challenges that i had to face, butii did not give up because i

considered the benefits that it can contribute to the english and literature department, to my

colleagues and students, and to the university as well,” Picardal said.

The writers of Retorika and Panitikan are planning to co-author books for senior high school and are

aiming to start by the end of this semester.
