Important insights (such as pedagogic and nationalistic ideas), through the use of metaphorization, can convert what is unknown (like nationalism) to known (such as copra-making). This paper aims to (1) form metaphors out of copra-making processes; (2) interpret such metaphors in the context of pedagogy and nationalism; and (3) develop pedagogic and nationalistic themes for social science instruction. Using qualitative method, the researcher served as participant observer in a coconut farm where he gathered necessary data. He found out that the 12 major processes of copra-making are replete with ideas which are rich sources of metaphorization. These processes can serve as guideposts in discussing Filipino consciousness at home and in the schools. The study revealed further that there is definitely something in copra-making which can facilitate the teaching of nationalism to the learners who are relatives of copra-makers. It is recommended that social science teachers use the copra-making processes as pegs for the discussions on national consciousness. The metaphors formed out of copra-making may be connected to the social science learning competencies as auxiliary materials. The out-of-school youth and the coconut farmers in identified barangays (villages) may be instructed to use the constructed metaphors to reflect on cultural, social, economic, and political issues and how these affect them in due consideration of their hindsight, insight, and foresight on their livelihood as the connection to their own country.
