Abstract:

The study aimed at determining the status of the Social Studies program in the public secondary schools in Bacolod City in terms of Social Studies teachers' profile, Social Studies-related problems, teaching methods employed by the teachers, teachers' perception of the supervision of the Social Studies program, the level of the Social Studies teachers' performance, the students' Social Studies test achievement, the students' scholastic performance in the subject, and the students' attitude towards Social Studies. The subjects for this descriptive-correlational study were the 84 randomly selected Social Studies teachers, 300 randomly selected senior students and the 15 school heads of all the public secondary schools in Bacolod City. Data for the study were gathered through the use of eight researcher- made instruments- Social Studies Teachers' Information Form, Social Studies Teachers Performance Rating Scale, Social Studies Survey Form, Social Studies Facilities and Materials Inventory Checklist, Social Studies Supervision Assessment Scale, Students' Attitude Rating Scale and Social Studies Achievement Test. Computer-processed statistics employed were frequency counts, means, ranks and the Pearson's r set at .05 alpha level. The findings showed that only about one-third of the entire Social Studies teachers had master's degrees; most had Social Studies for their field; most had longer experience in teaching the subject; and most had adequate seminars. The students had "good" achievement in the given Social Studies test, "very good' scholastic performance in the subject, but a "negative" attitude towards the subject. Supervision of the Social Studies Program was perceived to be "very good"; while related facilities and materials were only "fairly available" and 'fairly adequate." Most related activities were only "sometimes" conducted; and the problems encountered were only "fairly prevalent."
