Multisensory Teaching-Learning Approach in Reading for Pupils at Risk of Dropping Out (PARDO)

Vida May T. De Juan

Abstract


The multisensory approach refers to any learning activity that combines two or more sensory strategies to take in or express information, and these have been particularly valuable in literacy and language learning. This study utilized a multisensory approach to reading to motivate visual, auditory, tactile, and kinesthetic (VAK) learners and assess the five-month reading intervention program for the pupils who are at risk of dropping out. It used documentary analysis, oral diagnostic tests for the Grade I Pupils At Risk of Dropping-Out (PARDO). Such were conducted on a one-on-one basis to assess the reading skills of the pupils, and results were subjected to a t-test. The normative-descriptive method was employing a self-made questionnaire to gather information regarding the facilitators’ profile and their perceptions regarding the program. There was a significant leap in the performance of the subjects between the pretest and posttest. A significant improvement was observed in the performance of the pupils in the posttest. The program is very helpful to the young learners; it encourages them in continuing their studies especially those who are considered slow learners.
