An Assessment of the Flexible Approach in Teaching of Science at Batangas State University ARASOF-Nasugbu: Input to Instructional Material Development
Keywords:Content, Instructional Design, Instructional Material, Flexible Approach, Layout, Teaching of Science
The study aimed to assess the flexible approach in teaching science as an input to the development of an instructional material in teaching of science for Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSEd) major in Sciences students of Batangas State University ARASOF-Nasugbu. The study employed both the descriptive and developmental research design utilizing 5 science faculty members, 25 second year, and 27 third year pre-service science teachers as respondents of the study. A questionnaire using a 4- point Likert Scale was used to collect data. The results revealed that the use of instructional material in the subject teaching of science plays an important role in helping students to become proficient in the field of teaching science. It also revealed that instructional materials enable students to adjust on their own pace and is of great help for teachers and students during pandemic. The study recommended that the developed instructional material in teaching of science be subjected for further refinement before it is used and future researchers may conduct a study on the enhancement of the content, instructional design, and the layout of the developed instructional material applying all the comments and suggestions given by the respondents to come up with an instructional material that will definitely be more appropriate for the course Teaching of Science.
