The instrument used for data gathering is the checklist reinforced by an unstructured interview. The questionnaire has two parts. Part 1 is for the demographic profile of the teacher - respondents which includes their gender, age, civil status, educational qualifications, area of specialization, length of service, in-service trainings attended for the last three years and performance ratings for the last three years. Part II of the questionnaire features the Teaching- Learning Observation Guide (TLOG) in the form of rating scale which focuses on instructional performance skills of teachers namely Introductory skills, Developmental skills and Concluding skills. The participants of the study are eighty (80) TLE teachers or 95 percent out of the eighty four (84) teachers in the Division of Las Piñas City, four school administrators and seven department heads and three hundred seventy-seven (377) senior students. They are sampled using the Sloven’s Formula.
