In addition, English language skills will highly contribute in the academic performance specifically the National Achievement Test results of students. The four macro skills that it covers are emerging factors for the students to improve the results of other learning areas.
An experimental research design was employed in this study to determine the effectiveness of e- activities program when compared to Traditional Method in improving the retention ability of Grade 11 learners in Binmaley. Among the strategies/activities being utilized by English teachers, the most used traditional method employed by the respondents is lecture method (100%).
Generally, the English teachers of Secondary High School in Binmaley use the television (50%), digital video (50%). They found out that using these strategies in the classroom provide correct information as comprehensive as possible in different formats with different examples. Programs offered through television were produced in different languages. Whereas, the least used strategies are Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI), e-coaching, online learning (10%).
There is a significant difference between the retention ability of Grade 11 learners under the traditional method using the pre-test and post-test results. The pre-test and post-test scores of the students are somewhat similar. The results imply that teachers should already give walls to traditional teaching as it only gives the class monotony and boredom. They should try something new and different, something that captivates students’ attention and interest.
