Joji T. Recamara


This study examined the effectiveness of CALL UP Approach, Teachers’ Calibrating action for Lifelong Learning to Upstage Pandemic, on pupils’ performance specifically in English, Mathematics and Science. CALL UP Approach is an intervention strategy formulated by the teacher and employed during the Modular Distance Learning; a modality implemented during the occurrence of Covid 19 pandemic. The quasi-experimental method of research was employed to investigate the effectiveness of CALL UP Approach to improve learners’ performance in English, Math and Science. This pre-posttest design makes use of two group of learners with almost similar characteristics. The learners were divided into two groups to compose the control and experimental groups.  The control group were subjected to the usual treatment. Meanwhile, the experimental group were subjected to CALL UP Approach composed of home visits, small group community teaching, scaffolding and feedbacking. The results yielded significant difference on the mean gain score between the control and experimental groups implying that the CALL UP Approach is more effective in improving the pupil’s academic performance in English, Math and Science than the previously available learning model of delivery. The Call Up Approach as an intervention program is found effective to improve the learner’s academic performance as revealed in this study.
