DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF WORK TEXT IN FUNDAMENTALS OF UNDER CHASSIS, BRAKE, STEERING AND SUSPENSION SYSTEM
There is a process of instructional evolution as teachers attempt to integrate technology into their classroom instruction. The process includes five stages: entry, adoption, adaptation, appropriation, and invention. In this model, instructional methods may be the first strengthened using technology and then gradually replaced by far more dynamic learning technology. The researcher believes that to make instruction effective especially in the field of automotive technology, there is a need for an instructional material that can be link the lecture part of the subject to actual practice. These instructional activities in Fundamentals of Under chassis, Brake, Steering and Suspension System for taking up automotive technology are developed to answer this need. The study applied the descriptive method to determine the acceptability of the instructional materials in work text form in Fundamentals of Under chassis, Brake, Steering and Suspension System as a method in basic automotive technology classes and a combination of purposive random sampling was used. Results indicated that work text were least in the list of preferred instructional materials utilized by the faculty. The developed instructional materials in Fundamentals of Under chassis, Brake, Steering and Suspension System were highly acceptable to the school administrators and faculty as to objectives, contents, clarity, presentation, language and style, usefulness, and evaluation. The students performed better in the posttest after using the developed Instructional Material in Work text form in Fundamentals of Under chassis, Brake, Steering and Suspension System. There exists a significant difference on the pretest and posttest of the Automotive Technology students before and after using the developed Instructional Material in Fundamentals of Under chassis Brake, Steering and Suspension System.
