Language Teaching Strategy and Grade 12 Learners' Metacognitive and Problem Solving Skills in General Physics 1

Michelle G. Dordas

Abstract: This quasi-experimental study aimed to determine the effect of Language Teaching Strategy on the metacognitive and problem-solving skills of Grade 12 STEM learners for school year 2020 ? 2021.The participants were the Grade 12 STEM learners of Capiz National High School who opted online learning modality. They were matched paired according to their first quarter grade in General Physics 1, sex, and pretest scores. Validated and reliability tested researcher-made 10-item problem solving and revised metacognitive questionnaire were used to determine the metacognitive and problem-solving skills of the learners on universal law of gravitation, gravitational potential energy, periodic and simple harmonic motion, mechanical waves, density, pressure, Pascal's principle, Bernoulli's principle and temperature before and after the intervention. Results revealed a poor and novice level of metacognitive and problem-solving skills of both groups of learners before the implementation. They don't have a favorable knowledge in terms of the topic which is a good foundation for better problem solving. After exposure to language teaching strategy and non-language teaching strategy, learners' problem solving and metacognitive skills level skillful and very satisfactory. Learners, however still need to acquire different kinds of skills and strategies to help them solve physics problems successfully. Significant differences were noted in the pretest and posttest mean gain of the two groups in metacognitive and problem solving skills, favoring the one exposed to language teaching strategy. Results further showed that learners' metacognitive skills and performance in problem solving in Physics are correlated. The higher their metacognitive skills, the higher their problem solving skills. These findings may imply that language teaching strategy is deemed to be effective.
