Effectiveness of Validated Teaching-Learning Package in Projectile Motion for Grade 9 Science

Autor(s): Chester Ian Sotto Pineda

Abstract

This study tested the validity and effectiveness of the developed Teaching- Learning Package in Projectile Motion for Grade 9 Science. A Teacher's Guide, a Learner's Module, and a Computer- Aided Instructional (CAI) tool comprised the package. The CAI tool composed of interactive simulations was developed using  Adobe Flash Professional  CC  2015  software and  Small  Basic and utilized the  Microsoft  PowerPoint  2016  as the overall platform. Research and Development design was employed in the study. The assessment of the package was done in five categories: (1) objectives, (2) contents of the Teacher's Guide and Learner's Module; (3) content quality, (4) instructional quality, and (5) technical quality of CAI tool by the five Physics and two ICT teachers. General average ratings of 3.58 and 4.41 were obtained from the assessment of the modules and CAI tool, respectively. Thus, teaching materials possess very good qualities. It is observed that the improvement of students who learned with the use of Teaching- Learning Package is greater than the traditional approach using a textbook. It is recommended that the developed Teaching- Learning Package should be used in teaching Projectile Motion for Grade 9 Science in the K- 12 curriculum
