A survey on the learning styles of students and teaching styles of science teachers in private and public secondary schools
This pilot study determines how instruction can be modified toward techniques that will be comparable with the way Filipino students learn Science. Baseline data on the teaching styles of Science teachers and learning styles of students from private and public secondary schools in Luzon, including the National Capital Region were gathered. The survey method was used in this study. Four hundred Science teachers and 1,700 students were drawn as the respondents. The study reveals that the teaching styles among the public and the private school Science Teachers are quite diversified. Majorities of the secondary students are divergers; they learn best through feeling and observing. However, the male graduating students in the public schools are most likely to be convergers. They are better equipped in their learning process through higher order thinking skills.
