Abstract

Since the start of community quarantines throughout the Philippines, schools have been forced to close their doors for face-to-face classes. The Department of Education, in its wish to continue delivering instruction, resorted to different distance learning delivery modalities – one of which is modular distance learning (printed). This study assessed the public junior high school mathematics teachers’ experiences in preparing for the modular distance learning (printed) amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The descriptive correlational research design was used. The participants were 15 public junior high school mathematics teachers in Cagayan who used the modular approach in teaching in the first quarter of the school year 2020-2021. Results showed that the participants managed to be very prepared for the modular distance learning (printed) in mathematics before the formal opening of classes but circumstances were not easy for them as the learning modality required them to go through a difficult level of preparations. Profile variables were compared and the levels of preparations and difficulty were correlated. An action plan based on the recommendations of the participants was presented.
