STEPS IN THE RESEARCH PAPER PROCESS:
STEP ONE: Research! After you pick your guiding question, begin the research paper process. You will receive “research response sheets,” and you must complete at least 6 sheets, meaning that you will have at least 6 sources in your paper. At least 2 sources should be primary sources. In class and for homework, you will be doing research by reading sources and completing research response sheets. Make sure to record source information on your research response sheets for your bibliography, so that you don’t have to return to your sources to find page numbers, publishing information, and so on.
****Where do I find research? Use the books in our classroom and the sites/databases linked on this Libguide!
STEP TWO: Complete your outline for your research paper. (By outlining your paper, you will be coming up with a thesis, assertions, opposing arguments, and working to figure out where you will use each piece of evidence/research.)
STEP THREE: Write your research paper. Papers must be typed (12 point, Times New Roman, double-spaced) and 5-8 pages in length. You also must incorporate footnotes. YOU ALSO MUST INCLUDE A BIBLIOGRAPHY with your paper. Information on how to do footnotes and bibliographies will be distributed in class.
STEP FOUR: Revise your paper if necessary. Also make sure to revise your bibliography and citations if necessary.
PLEASE NOTE: You will also be graded on your focus and ability to work in class. This research paper process requires you to work independently and make good use of class time.

Reviewed literatures on dichotomous achievement goal theory of motivation show that students may be inclined to mastery orientation and performance orientation. However, there is no unified conclusion to what causes them. Hence, this study sought to determine if classroom goal structure could be associated with increment and decrement of mastery orientation among the secondary school students. Utilizing an Ex Post Facto research design, 60 high school students with high and low mastery orientation were randomly selected and were asked to accomplish an adopted PALS 1 self-report inventory. Results revealed that classroom task goal and performance goal structures respectively had negligible and slight correlation with high mastery orientation; on the other hand, low mastery orientation had a negligible correlation with classroom task goal and performance goal structure. It is recommended that other classroom environmental factors and student's contextual factors may be investigated to determine the cause/s for mastery orientation.

The main objective of this study was to determine the impact of gadgets in learning among Grade 11-STEM students at Urdaneta City National High School during the school year 2017-2018. It looked into the frequency of use of the gadgets in learning which are cellphones, computers, and tablets and the the impact of gadgets in learning as perceived by the students. Further, it determined the significant relationship between the frequency of use and the impact of gadgets. The study was conducted at Urdaneta City National High School, Urdaneta City which included 70 Grade 11 student respondents who are enrolled in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) strand during the school year 2017-2018. This study made use of the quantitative research design with the questionnaire as the main gathering tool. The data were tabulated into a contingency table and treated with the proper statistical measures. For problem number 1 and 2, the Average Weighted Mean method was used; a four-point scale and five-point scale Likert scale was used in the analysis. The problem number 3 and the null hypothesis were tested for its significance using the Pearson Product Correlation method. Relative to the analyses and interpretation of data, it was deducted that cellphones are always used by the students, computers are sometimes used by the students and tablets are seldom used by the students in learning. This study also deducted that the use of gadgets has a moderately positive impact in learning but it also has a slightly negative impact. It was also deducted that there was no significant correlation between the frequency of use and the impact of gadgets.
This action research project was conducted to find out how effective is the Readers’ Theater in improving the Grade V pupils’ fluency. The research examined the pupils’ fluency before and after the intervention. A series of pre-tests were conducted to determine the pupils’ fluency level. The gathered information was used as the baseline data. Then, the readers’ theater was applied following the teacher’s model of fluent reading. Post-tests were given after the intervention using the same passages. The teacher researcher chose the readers’ theater as an instrument to help the pupils work together to become fluent readers and better comprehend what they are reading. Reader’s Theater is the use of drama or re-enacting a piece of literature which then leads to a better understanding of characters, plot, and meaning. Readers’ Theater turned out to be a valuable tool to help students develop their fluency while encouraging positive interactions among peers. The students achieved academic success by increasing their reading levels, and there was also an increase in enthusiasm and motivation towards reading. This paper presents the findings of this research that through the use of Readers’ Theater, fluency of pupils can be improved.

The study was designed to determine gains in student concept attainment using culture and language sensitive physics. Pangasinan learners of the Philippines were culturally profiled by determining the cultural dimensions, epistemological beliefs and students' views on integration of culture and language in the teaching and learning process. The unique cultural profile of the learners was used to design culture and language sensitive curriculum materials in physics. The designed culture and language sensitive curriculum materials presented physics lessons and activities using the traditions, beliefs, practices, artifacts and the native language. Implementation of culture and language sensitive curriculum materials was done to determine if integration of culture and language would result to better attainment of physics concepts of the experimental participants. Pre-test and post-test comparisons of the concept attainment of the experimental participants showed significant statisti...

An open admission policy was implemented in the campuses of Lingayen, Bayambang and Urdaneta City of Pangasinan State University, Philippines in school year 2008-2009. The purpose of the policy is to maximize the university resources and serve more poor students. Through this, student-applicants can choose from non-quota courses offered in different campuses of Pangasinan State University. For almost seven years of implementation, the study found out that the administrators considered inability to teach by teachers, campus security and food center highly serious. They rated problem on number of computer units as moderately serious. The inability to manage class, food center and number of chairs and computers were rated moderately serious by faculty members and students. Difficulty in learning was highly serious by the faculty members and moderately serious by the students. This open admission policy implemented in Pangasinan State University resulted to the rise number of enrollees year after year since its implementation in school year 2008-2009. The school personnel encountered challenges because of this. Administrators experienced higher degree of seriousness of problems related to open admission policy compared to the groups of faculty members and students. This study recommended that administrators should conduct seminar-workshop for teacher's relation to classroom management and teaching approaches. They should also prioritize the monitoring of security and safety of students. Also, they should meet the faculty members on a semester basis in order to get their experiences, feedbacks and suggestions. With regards to university administrators and planners, they consider construction of more classrooms and comfort rooms, and procurement of chairs and computer units to accommodate the growing number of students.
Educational theories linked to the mother tongue-based multilingual education suggest that children learn best from a familiar starting point. Learning should begin with what a child knows and understands. Thus, children learn best when using a language they speak and understand well. Mother tongue-based MLE programmes enable learners to begin their education in the language they know best. With the implementation of mother tongue-based multilingual education comes its consequent “birthing pains” so to speak. This study brings to the fore the areas of concern foremost to the teachers and administrators who are at the forefront of this educational approach. The results of the survey point to how the teachers are proficient in the mother tongue and employ a variety of strategies typical of MTBMLE. It is also noteworthy to mention how instructional delivery in the mother tongue contribute to an improvement in the pupils’ performance in class and outputs. It cannot be denied though that there are still areas where the teachers need further provision or assistance with the implementation of MTBMLE. Foremost in the teachers and administrators’ concerns are the need for trainings, rubrics, and instructional materials. It is thus recommended that the teachers should undergo further trainings that will address these areas mentioned. The proposed training design will be in aid of preparing the teachers for becoming an effective bilingual teacher. Teaching and learning methods are based on sound educational and language learning theories. For a sustainable and successful Mother Tongue-Based Multilingual Education Program, there has to be an ample supply of culturally sensitive and quality learning materials. Creating mother tongue teaching and learning materials increases teachers’ knowledge, confidence, and comfort in transitioning into the MTBMLE classroom. It is therefore imperative that materials development and production needs careful planning and strategic implementation.

The study combined qualitative approaches with quantitative research design to develop culture and language sensitive curriculum materials in Physics (CLS-CMIP). The curriculum materials are intended to aid students in meaning making when learning about Physics concepts and achieve conceptual change, meaningful learning and enhanced attitude in science while preserving and assimilating their local culture, traditions, practices and home language or mother tongue. Significant contribution of the curriculum materials can betraced to establishing and defining the constructs and categories on how curriculum localization andcontext-based science learning can be developed aligned with students’ expectations and beliefs. Thedevelopment process employed non-conventional processes adopted from literature which included pilotstudy to identify specific practices, traditions, beliefs and products of Pangasinan which still exist and of use to the people of Pangasinan which can be integrated and ...
The purpose of a multilingual education program is to develop appropriate cognitive and reasoning skills enabling children to operate equally in their community language, the national language and English. Within MTB-MLE these standards should reflect the fact that teachers are prepared to successfully educate students who speak a mother tongue different from the target language of instruction. This requires that teachers understand and can implement strategies for using the mother tongue as the primary road for children to build their initial literacy skills. Utilizing a survey questionnaire as well as documentary analysis, the study looked into the status of the implementation of the mother tongue as a learning subject in public elementary schools in Lingayen II District. Results show that of the 11 schools under the Lingayen II District, none reached the advanced level while five (5) schools' level of performance proved to be proficient (45.45%); six (6) of the schools fared poorly with two (2) schools approaching proficiency (18.18%), three (3) schools' (27.27%) level of performance were found to be developing and one (1) (9.1) was found to be still at the level of beginning. Likewise, of the 7 objectives and competencies the Grade I pupils were expected to master, they had mastered 5 and 2 were not mastered. It is thereby recommended that supplementary instructional materials on MTBMLE be developed so as to address the teachers' problems in as far as the content, suitability and coverage of the MTBMLE instructional materials are concerned.

Being sleepy in class can have a vital impact on the academic performance of a student. Lack of sufficient and adequate sleep can be harmful and even deadly. It is a basic necessity of life and important part of learning. This study utilized descriptive and correlational design to examine 119 senior high Electrical Installation and Maintenance (EIM) students who were selected through simple random sampling. Findings revealed that 88 percent of the students were sleep deprived and they usually sleep for less than 6 hours only. Two of the reasons of sleeping late were using of Facebook and Messenger account and playing mobile games. The third reason was making assignments and homeworks. The most prevalent classroom behaviours were: students were sleepy during class discussions and they slept in class during vacant periods and the third prevalent behavior was they felt tired during classes. Sixty-one percent of the students have a general average of 75-79 which is only fairly satisfactory and 29 percent have 80-84 grade which is only satisfactory in the K-12 grading system. There was a significant negative relationship (cc= -0.420 and p=0.000) between number of hours of night sleep and sleepiness classroom behavior. This suggested that the less number of hours of night sleep is correlated to high occurrence of sleepiness classroom behavior. There was a significant positive relationship (cc=0.627 and p=0.000) between number of hours of night sleep and academic performance. This suggested that the high number of hours of night sleep is associated to high academic performance. On the other hand, students with less sleep had low academic performance. There was a significant negative relationship (cc= -0.544 and p=0.000) between sleepiness classroom behavior and the academic performance. This implied that high occurrence of sleepiness classroom behavior is associated to low academic performance. The implications may serve as basis for policy makers, school administrators and teachers to educate students including the parents on the proper use of mobile phones and other gadgets. The parents need to set sleeping time or lights-off rules and regulate the use of mobile phones. Sleeping time or routine shall be imposed. School administrators and teachers need to craft a well-planned and well-designed policy on giving assignments and homeworks to attain high scholastic achievement.

Technology brought the easiest way to do such things and even updating us with the things going on around the world. This even creates conflict and bullying not only in adult but even with children in school by posting some sensitive videos or even pictures which may result in breaking ones integrity. These happens because with technology, the world is getting smaller now. People get to know each other over the internet. Some goes viral not for the good things but some with the bullies they get from other people. Some may hate it but who cares if others do love it anyway. With the arrival of the information age, information technology becomes more widespread and integrated into more aspects of our life(Liu Jie, 2008). Everything is terribly fast and in an twinkling of an eye everything changes. So life is bearable and become as easy as it is. The modern world take us to some activities which we may neither like nor dislike. Technology doesn't limit its use to higher class people because even the least of the community tries to find a way just to connect with the world and can probably know the details of some things happening around the world. With the presence of internet, citizens take it as an advantage in finding government information even communicating with elected leaders and even participating in some campaign activities (VanFossen, 2006) through this, we may be able to access what we need to know from the latest governance. Adults were not the ones who finds technology very entertaining, in so much that kids love it far better with the online application the internet could offer. Sometimes they choose to stay late outside and play in play stations until they feel tired, they doesn't even care if they're hungry. All they wanted is to reach the level they need to compete with other players. Problem arises when the pupils get so attach with the online games. Studies have shown that an increase in virtual interaction decreases the amount of face-to-face interaction between people and this in turn may lead to social isolation and depression. While no causal relationship between internet use and depression has yet been ascertained, there is an

Electronic learning is a technology learning that plays an important role in modern education and training. Its great contribution lies in the fact that content is available at any place and device from a fixed device to mobile device. Nowadays, education is accessible everywhere with the use of technology. There are several LMS (Learning Management Systems) available. One of the new tool available was released by Google under GSuite. Pangasinan State University is currently subscribed to GSuite for Education, and recently Google introduces Classroom as an eLearning platform for an educational institution. This research aims to evaluate the new product, its functionalities for the purpose of adapting and deployment. The main objective of this paper is to identify the usability and evaluation of the Learning Management System (LMS) Google Classroom, its functionalities, features, and satisfaction level of the students. Based on the result, the respondents agreed that GSuite classroom is recommended. The result of this study will be the proposed e-learning platform for Pangasinan State University, Lingayen Campus initially need in the College of Hospitality Management, Business and Public Administration.
THIS BOOK COMPILED ON THE BASIS OF REPORTS SUBMITTED BY INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC CONFERENCE "STATE MEDIA EDUCATION IN RUSSIA IN THE CONTEXT OF GLOBAL TRENDS" (TAGANROG, 7-8 SEPTEMBER 2012). THE COLLECTION IS DEVOTED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF MEDIA EDUCATION IN RUSSIA AND THE MODERN WORLD.
In an era where children grow up with media multi-tasking, that is, simultaneous media use of audio and visual gadgets as well as Web-enabled computers and mobile devices, the importance of self-regulatory abilities for learning and achievement (eg, abilities to remain attentive, motivated, and engaged) becomes very apparent.
In this article we present an initiative in which two compulsory courses- Research Methodology and EFL Practice Teaching – were partially blended in a Teacher Education College. The methodology courses (i.e. Quantitative and Qualitative Research Methods) are courses in which students study topics as data collection and data analysis, while Practice Teaching is a pedagogic workshop which accompanies the students‟ teaching at school. The purpose of this collaboration is twofold: to create a relevant and positive research arena for the methodology courses on the one hand, and to promote critical and reflective teaching skills and thinking of student-teachers, on the other. In order to evaluate our collaboration an action research was conducted on 8 English student-teachers who took part in the Practice Teaching course. Findings are that the students repeatedly related to research concepts when referring to student learning. The interviewed students characterized various aspects of learning, mentioning a variety of tools used for collecting empirical information. Thus, the learning and understanding of statistics was enhanced when students conducted their own research using real data and addressing real problems. We therefore propose to use Practice Teaching course as an arena for application of other courses taught at the college (e.g. psychology, philosophy and language) so data collected about teaching and learning could serve as a basis to deal with various authentic issues.
This research project attempts to investigate the peculiarities of reactions of Russian schools to changes related to the incorporation of mobile learning and social networks in education, which implied not by the federal government as previously, but brought by students themselves as main users of Internet and mobile devices. Currently, 97 percent of Russian adolescents have they own mobile devices (D.Koroleva, 2016). Despite the official Ministry of Education ban K-12 students still use their cellular phones or tablets in schools. Social network sites are most popular resource among adolescents; they use this service for communication, distribution of information and its consumption. The obtained data shows that the usage of mobile technology is the indistinguishable process for adolescents due to both face-to-face and online communication. Thus, the social situation for child’s development is changing. Nevertheless, penetration of the online communication in everyday lives of scho ol children is ignored by the compulsory education in Russia, and the educational potential of social networks is not considered. The study identified a new, third wave of education informatization, which is coming not from the state as previous ones, but provoked by students themselves as main users and owners of the mobile devices. We argue that this process of change have to be considered by educational stakeholders and policymakers. The research is based on Vygotsky's social constructivist theory (Vygotsky, 1978), and according to Creswell’s mixed methods research design (Creswell, 2005).

The journal issue features the research outputs of the member institutions of the Philippine Association for Graduate Education (PAGE-MIMAROPA) as part of its continuing efforts to make strong the area on collaborative research. The research outputs are mainly from Occidental Mindoro State College (OMSC) and Divine Word College of Calapan, Calapan City, revolving around concerns in Science, K to 12 Curriculum Implementation, AIS Accreditation and Equivalency Program and Environmental Practices and Differentiated Instruction. The research output on collaborative research envisions a new paradigm shift involving the academe and industry. A unified and coordinated direction towards this end has been initiated by co-investing efforts in engaging in a more relevant research to realize the Higher education thrusts that include providing quality education and successful transition to the knowledge society. The program of collaboration between the academe and industry has since then formed part of higher education reforms which involve continuous exchange of ideas /information in various dimensions of educational practices and even culture. Collaboration also calls for engagement in joint programs /projects to usher in innovations even in new areas of discovery and concerns of both education and the industry. The partnership acknowledges collaborative research as its ultimate goal to bring about significant changes in the field of learning in preparation for life in a highly competitive and demanding workforce. To this end, one major consideration is to ensure sustainability of the development process undergone by the academe and industry to meet the demands of the changing realities. As it is, in the new paradigm shift more will be coming in the area of research to explore new possibilities and to co-innovate the best in the teaching and learning outcomes for the good of the society in general.
One of the most important factors in terms of guaranteeing academic success is the education of children with their own language. Research has shown that children’s first language is the optimal language for literacy and learning throughout primary school which could lead to a better educational outcome. In line to this, the Philippine Basic Education Curriculum was revised to consider Mother Tongue as a medium of instruction for Kinder to Grade III level in the elementary schools. This paper explores the current status and challenges of Mother Tongue (Pangasinan) teachers in Pangasinan public elementary schools. Specifically, it will describes how competent the teachers are in teaching Mathematics III with Mother Tongue (Pangasinan) as a medium of instruction and the challenges they faced in using the Mother Tongue as a medium of instruction. Documentary analysis and interview were employed in gathering the data. Findings showed a quite dismal result with regards to the qualification of teachers and their competence in teaching Mathematics using Mother Tongue (Pangasinan) and lack of materials or resources. The contextualized contents of the material were not the typical or conversational Mother Tongue. Hence, the students and the teachers were having difficulty in comprehending the lessons in Mathematics. This paper concluded that using Mother Tongue (Pangasinan) in teaching Mathematics in the public elementary schools in Pangasinan was not so effective in fostering children’s learning abilities.

Several researches identified that many students find physics the most difficult science subject. The quest to find ways to make learning physics more meaningful and interesting has lasted for decades. Even with all the new strategies and pedagogies being used, many students still find the subject formidable. This study critically explored the learning characteristics of Filipino physics students which will serve as baseline data for curriculum design. Value Survey Module 2008 (VSM 08) and Epistemological Beliefs Assessment for Physical Sciences (EBAPS) were used to determine the cultural dimension indices and the epistemological beliefs of 385 participants grouped according to ethnicity. Percentage contributions of the three identified ethnic groups (Tagalog, Bicol and Pangasinan) were determined by taking the population ratio of each ethnic group with the total population of the three ethnic groups. Hofstede’s cultural interpretation and education perspective interpretation of cul...
Purpose: The study provides a clearer understanding of the influences of Facebook to the development of the English language proficiency of students. The study advances a framework or model that serves as guide in the use of Facebook in the development and/or enhancement of their language skills/competencies. Methods: This study made use of descriptive research design since it acquired information through description that is useful for identifying variables and hypothetical constructs which can be further investigated through other means like exploratory studies. T-test was utilized to determine the significant difference on the influence of the use of Facebook in the English language proficiency of students. Two-way Anova was used to determine the interaction effect of the different variables on the English language proficiency using Facebook. Results: The users of Facebook are still learning in using appropriate vocabulary while the non-users are developing in the said area. Both the users of Facebook and non-users of Facebook are competent in spelling proficiency. However, in terms of grammar proficiency, the non-users of Facebook are considered competent while the users of Facebook are developing in the said area. In terms of correct sentence structure the non-users of Facebook got a higher mean score. However, both the users and non-users of Facebook are developing in the said area. On the other hand, both users of Facebook and non-users of Facebook are developing in using the correct and appropriate punctuation marks. The study reveals that in giving or expressing ideas, the non-users of Facebook are competent while the users of Facebook are developing. In the over-all language proficiency of students, both users of Facebook and non-users of Facebook are said to be developing. Conclusion: This study revealed that Facebook is not effective in attaining proficiency in the English language despite the fact that students are highly motivated to use Facebook and their teachers are highly competent in using Facebook as educational material. Students are inquisitive in utilizing Facebook and enthusiast to explore the different features of Facebook especially on gaming and chatting however, they are being sidetracked and lose their focus on the given academic activities
Students of Moscow schools and other educational institutions between the ages of 16 and 18 years old were surveyed to assess how Russian schools use modern methods of e-learning , mobile technologies, and social media in the learning process. The sample covered 3,194 respondents. The study describes three waves of Russian school informatization and the challenges the system has been facing over the last five years: the extensive use of mobile phones and PDAs with high-speed access to the Internet by students and the active use of social media services for communication, search, and the storage of information. The article demonstrates the obvious progress of the schooling system: present-day teachers communicate with their students via email and social networks and occasionally give homework assignments to be done on-line or using Internet services. Yet, the school remains an extremely conservative institution. The education system is insensitive to the rapid development of technologies, and the process of modernization is essentially inhibited by sticking to conventional teaching practices and ignoring innovative ones.
