An Analysis of the In-Service Training Programs for Biology Teachers in the Philippines with Emphasis on Their Effectiveness in Teaching Inquiry-Oriented Materials.
Villavicencio, Rosalina Real
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the 1972 biology inservice summer institute programs conducted in five Regional Science Teaching Centers (RSTC) in the Philippines. Investigated were: (1) the effect of summer institute programs, using the biology curriculum material adapted for the Philippine high schools (Green version BSCS) on teachers' knowledge of biology and nature and processes of science, (2) attitude of teachers toward the program, (3) attitude of teachers and students toward the laboratory exercises, (4) effect of the use of adapted materials on the achievement of students in biology, and (5) teaching methods and strategies employed by the teachers. One biology class of each of 25 teachers was the subject of testing before and after the summer program. Among the conclusions were: (1) there was an increase in teachers' knowledge of biology and processes of science after the program; (2) the students did perform better in achievement tests; (3) the classroom activities were mostly inquiry-oriented; and (4) acquisition of the understanding and processes of science was related to achievement among teachers and students.
