This study was conducted to determine the significant relationship with the academic performance of the learners and the use of home-based instructional materials as an avenue for teaching English subject for Grade 8 English learners of San Francisco High School.

The proponents used a descriptive research of a correlation type in determining the respondents’ academic performance in given tasks using the home-based instructional materials.

The findings revealed that there is a significant relationship between academic performance of the learners and the use of home-based instructional materials. Hence, the following conclusions are drawn: (1) The use of home-based instructional materials could be of great help for the instances where classes would be suspended due to given weather conditions or holiday seasons; (2) English learning could grow better for the learners as they be exposed with technology-based materials aside from the traditional means of giving school-based activities; and (3) An increase in learners’ attention may also be drawn as an effect of their exposure to varied learning materials which may be done also from the comforts of their home. With that, the following are hereby recommended: (1) Teachers must plan ahead on the materials to prepare for the home-based instructional materials especially during conditions where classes may be suspended due to environmental factors such weather conditions or even special holidays being implemented or observed in the country or even in the city where the school is located; (2) Learners must be given awareness as to the importance of this efforts being done by the teachers to address the need for continues learning as this would be a better opportunity to maintain focus in the lessons of the given subject matter; (3) Parents, must also be oriented about the use of home-based instructional materials and their significant role at home by ensuring follow-up monitoring and engagement of learner’s preparation of the given tasks. It can also be a bonding time for the parents with their child to work on the given tasks anchored in the day’s lesson; and (4) A parallel study may be conducted in order to expound further the ideas presented in this research endeavor for the welfare of the learners of the 21st century.

Abstract


This study was conducted to determine the significant relationship with the academic performance of the learners and the use of home-based instructional materials as an avenue for teaching English subject for Grade 8 English learners of San Francisco High School.

The proponents used a descriptive research of a correlation type in determining the respondents’ academic performance in given tasks using the home-based instructional materials.

The findings revealed that there is a significant relationship between academic performance of the learners and the use of home-based instructional materials. Hence, the following conclusions are drawn: (1) The use of home-based instructional materials could be of great help for the instances where classes would be suspended due to given weather conditions or holiday seasons; (2) English learning could grow better for the learners as they be exposed with technology-based materials aside from the traditional means of giving school-based activities; and (3) An increase in learners’ attention may also be drawn as an effect of their exposure to varied learning materials which may be done also from the comforts of their home. With that, the following are hereby recommended: (1) Teachers must plan ahead on the materials to prepare for the home-based instructional materials especially during conditions where classes may be suspended due to environmental factors such weather conditions or even special holidays being implemented or observed in the country or even in the city where the school is located; (2) Learners must be given awareness as to the importance of this efforts being done by the teachers to address the need for continues learning as this would be a better opportunity to maintain focus in the lessons of the given subject matter; (3) Parents, must also be oriented about the use of home-based instructional materials and their significant role at home by ensuring follow-up monitoring and engagement of learner’s preparation of the given tasks. It can also be a bonding time for the parents with their child to work on the given tasks anchored in the day’s lesson; and (4) A parallel study may be conducted in order to expound further the ideas presented in this research endeavor for the welfare of the learners of the 21st century.
