Effectiveness of the Environmental Education Program in Enhancing Awareness, Comprehension, and Competence of the Middle-school Children of Bicol University

Publisher: Bicol University
Abstract

The study assessed the effectiveness of Environmental Education (EE) in enhancing the awareness, comprehension, and competence of middle-school children's EE skills in Bicol University College of Education Integrated Laboratory School, Daraga Albay, Philippines. The developmental-descriptive-evaluative research method was used alongside quantitative and qualitative approaches involving 36 Grade 6 pupils, 10 faculty members randomly selected, and one administrator. Results revealed that the children were slightly aware of the EE concepts, with full comprehension of EE, and moderately competent on the EE skills before the intervention. The program implementation improved the awareness, comprehension of EE concepts, and competence in EE skills. Five major themes emerged along good practices observed in the EE program implementation: instructional materials, delivery of the lesson, interaction with children, assessment of outputs, and collaboration with stakeholders. Documented good practices contributed to achieving the goal of the Environmental Education Program. It is recommended that a comprehensive EE program be developed to provide children with in-depth preparation as future responsible citizens.
