Modified Lab Rotation Model: A Blended e-Learning Approach to Improve Student’s Conceptual Understanding of English Verb Tense and Aspect

Abstract

In language Education, verb tense and aspect is one of the most difficult lessons in elementary grade. For the past three years, S.Y. 2015- 2016,2016-2017 and 2017-2018, English verb tense and aspect is consistently included in the least mastered skills topic in Grade Five English. This study aimed at investigating the use of Modified Lab Rotation Model in improving the conceptual understanding of English Verb tense and Aspect. This model is based on the concept of Blended E-Learning Approach, an integration of traditional “chalk-talk” and online learning in order to provide educational opportunities that maximize the benefits of each mode of delivery and thus effectively facilitate student learning. This paper offers a comparative analysis of students’ conceptual understanding and achievement in the Blended E- Learning Approach and traditional classrooms. A pre-test- post –test design was used, utilizing quantitative and qualitative methods of research.Data triangulation plan was used to further verify the results of the pre and post test. The results revealed substantial improvements in the technical aspect of language and achievement of students from Group B. It also showed that students who used the Modified Lab Rotation Model were more likely to contribute higher perceptive ideas during class discussion. However, further analysis indicated that the Modified Lab Rotation Model is not certainly superior over the traditional “Chalk-talk” approach since we included chalk-talk in the MLRM processes,thus not all lesson can be blended.
