  • Grenna Marie Joy P. Simene


This study evaluated the approaches and strategies employed by Bukidnon State University instructors in teaching Philippine Literature. The study was anchored on the concept that successful literature teaching requires the use of different approaches and classroom activities or strategies. The results of the study revealed that instructors preferred personal-response approach and paraphrastic approach in the teaching of Philippine Literature. The study further showed that the strategies instructors used are varied but only catered to the approaches favored. One finding also showed that the language-based approach is seldom employed by the instructors although some of them often start the lesson with word definitions.Keywords:  personal-response approach, paraphrastic approach, language-based approach
