Benjamin C. Abregado

Abstract: This study aimed to evaluate the implementation of Grade 11 Science Program of Public Secondary Schools: Teachers’ Competencies and Pedagogical Practices in Teaching Science. Specifically, the study determined the extent of implementation of the program and the problems and difficulties encountered by the science teachers. The study utilized qualitative and quantitative research designs. Descriptive statistics was used to analyze the data. The respondents of the study were 304 learners and 13 teachers from nine (9) public secondary schools in the said city and were chosen using stratified random sampling. The findings of the study revealed that the curriculum standards of Grade 11 Science Program of Public Secondary Schools in Cauayan City were implemented to a great extent. The teachers, therefore, complied with the curriculum standards of the K to 12 set by the Department of Education and they performed very well in the initial implementation of the program. With the implementation of the program, teachers encountered problems seriously on the availability of printed instructional materials, presence of functional science laboratory which are vital to the hands-on activities of the learners, sufficiency of textbooks, instructional materials/teaching guidelines, and learning modules, equal opportunity to attend seminars and trainings, and preparations of two or more subjects. Teachers should continue to anchor daily lesson with the science curriculum guide. They are also encouraged to continue using English as a medium of instruction in Science. They must be sent regularly to seminar-workshops and trainings for them to be updated of the trends in Science and an equal opportunity must be exercised among teachers along this endeavor. The Department of Education through the Learning Resource Management and Development System (LRMDS) Office should make a way to provide sufficient learners’ materials and learners’ modules in Science to cater the needs of the learn
