Chapter 1
THE PROBLEM AND ITS SETTING
Background of the Study Nowadays, numerous curriculums are being implemented among institutions which could give the learners a variety of options on where would they enroll themselves and on what skill would they hone up. Curriculum, in its broadest sense may refer to the set of courses, and their content, offered at a school. It may also refer to a defined and prescribed course of studies, which students must fulfil in order to pass a certain level of education (Christensen, 2003). In high school, curriculum refer to the courses required in order to receive one’s diploma and the overall offering of courses, which help prepare a student for life after high school. Usually, students in high school have some degree of choice in pursuing their education. They often have specially designed curriculum which helps them attain a degree or to specialize in a certain field. Their curriculum may be separated into courses that make one eligible to attend certain colleges, and courses that will merely earn students a diploma (Wallace, 2011). The Special Program in Sports (SPS) is one of the specialized curriculums offered among some of the secondary schools in the Philippines. It is in line with the efforts of the Department of Education (DepEd) to institutionalize a program that will identify or discover students with potential talent in sports and hone their skills for higher levels of athletic competitions (Bureau of Secondary Education, 2009). However, Mahoney, et al. (2004) stated that a common problem for many students enrolled in these specialized courses is that they take on too much. Instead of focusing on their academic performance they tend to be pre-occupied with their specialization which often causes their classroom performance and grades to suffer. In Tagum City National Comprehensive High School, the researchers noticed that some senior students under the Special Program in Sports (SPS) Curriculum have numerous tardiness and absences, participate less when present and does not do their homework. In relation to these, the researchers decided to conduct a study about the factors affecting the performance in English of senior students in Special Program in Sports Curriculum of Tagum City National Comprehensive High School.
Statement of the Problem This study was intended to determine the factors affecting the performance in English of senior students in Special Program in Sports Curriculum of Tagum City National Comprehensive High School. Specifically, this study sought to answer the following questions: 1. Is there any significant relationship between the senior students in SPS Curriculum and the following factors: 1. Physical Constraint; 2. State of Mind; and 1.3 Schedule? 2. What factor affects most on the SPS senior students’ performance in English? 3. What factor brings lesser impact on the SPS senior students’ performance in English?
Hypotheses
This study of the factors affecting the performance in English of senior students in Special Program in Sports Curriculum of Tagum City National Comprehensive High School has the following null hypotheses: 1. There is no significant relationship between the SPS senior students’ performance in English and the following factors: 1. Physical Constraint; 2. State of Mind; and 1.3 Schedule. 2. There is no factor that affects most on the SPS senior students’ performance in English; and 3. There is no factor that brings lesser impact on the SPS senior students’ performance in English.
Review of Related Literature Broh (2002) stated that the impact of sports has on academic performance has been debated over the years. Early analysis of the effect of participation in sports on academic achievement produced inconsistent evidence — some say the impact is positive, while others say it is negative. Trend & Braddock (1992) as cited by (Fairclough and Stratton, 2005), participation in sport activities could provide extrinsic rewards to students and help them form social bonds and relationships within school. However, educators were sceptical of participation in sports and other extra- curricular activities, believing that school should focus solely on narrowly defined academic outcomes. Non-academic activities were viewed as primarily recreational and therefore were detrimental to academic achievement and consequently were discouraged (Marsh and Kleitman, 2002). Moreover, Marsh (1988) as cited by Schley, et al. (2002), reported that participation in too many activities produced diminishing returns. Participation in sports and other extracurricular activities was consistently beneficial, but had mixed or predominantly negative effects.
Review of Related Studies In the study conducted by the Carnegie Corporation of New York in March 2006, they found that young people in sports experience multiple benefits. Their results indicated that, at their best, sports programs promote responsible social behavior and greater academic success. Many studies have demonstrated the positive effects of physical education and physical activity on school performance. Several studies have stated that providing increased time for physical activity can lead to better concentration, reduced disruptive behaviors and higher test scores in reading, math and writing (Satcher, 2005). However, the results of the study conducted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in April 2010, suggest that physical education may have favorable associations with students’ cognitive skills and attitudes and their academic achievement, but the relationships are not universal and vary by outcome studied. In schools across the United States, physical education has been substantially reduced — and in some cases completely eliminated — in response to the study conducted about the budget concerns and pressures to improve academic test scores (Goldberg et al., 2005). Moreover, in the study conducted in California State University, a student who devotes his spare time in sport activities spends less time on studies. This can affect his grades if he is not spending enough time studying. It can also become stressful dedicating time to an activity if the schedule increases. As the academic workload increases, so too can sport activity, and a child can feel stressed wondering how he can deal with both (Hartmann, 2008).
Theoretical Framework This study is mainly anchored on Subjectivity Education Theory. The theory presumes that teachers should create democratic, harmonious and loose teaching scenes through guiding and enlightening the students’ internal activity demands, and purposefully organize and specify all kinds of teaching activities in a planned way to cultivate the students to be the subject who can recognize and practice autonomously, actively and creatively. Subjectivity education further assumes that teaching sports to some extent can stimulate students’ initiative and activity and improve their academic performance. It explains that sports class can enlighten and cultivate students’ subject consciousness, establish democratic and harmonious teaching scenes and carry out the teaching thought of subjective participation, respect for differences, cooperative learning and successful experience. However, as what the researchers have observed among the SPS senior students, it shows that their performance in English is opposite to what was mentioned above. Therefore, conducting this study is necessary to find out whether this theory is applicable to all or not.
Conceptual Framework This conceptual framework was used as a guide to explain the relatedness of the three variables that were involved in the study; the independent (factors affecting the performance in English of senior students in SPS Curriculum of TCNCHS), the intervention (survey questionnaire) and the dependent (result of the conducted survey). The central component of the study was the factors affecting the performance in English of senior students in SPS Curriculum of TCNCHS (independent variable). Factors affecting the performance in English of senior students in SPS basically include physical constrain, state of mind and schedule. To identify the factors affecting the performance in English of senior students in SPS Curriculum, the researchers administered a survey. The result of the survey that was conducted enabled the researchers to determine the factor that affects most and the factor that brings lesser impact on the performance in English of senior students in SPS Curriculum of TCNCHS.
Conceptual Model of the Study

Figure 1. Variables of the Study
Significance of the Study This study is considered important as its results will benefit the following stakeholders:
Students. This study will help the senior students in Special Program in Sports Curriculum to determine the factors affecting their performance in English. With this, they would be able to address these factors and subsequently avoid low performance in English.
Teachers. The outcome of this study will serve as the teacher’s basis in determining the factors affecting the performance in English of the students in SPS Curriculum which could broaden their capability of understanding the SPS students’ performance in class and help the students to cope more effectively.
School Administrators. The result of this study will serve as an eye opener for the school administrators to monitor whether the Special Program in Sports Curriculum in TCNCHS was implemented properly.
Definition of Terms The following terms were conceptually and operationally defined in this study for better understanding of the paper:
Curriculum. This term refers to the set of courses, and their content, offered at a school or university. It is a prescriptive, and is based on a more general syllabus which merely specifies what topics must be understood and to what level to achieve a particular grade or standard (Christensen, 2003). In this study, the term is used in the same context.
Physical Constraint. This term refers to physical restriction; repression of one's own feelings, behavior, or actions (Merriam Webster’s Dictionary, 2004). In the study, it refers on the physical condition of the students in a particular time or during English period that hinders them in participating or attending the class.
Schedule. This term refers to a plan of procedure, usually written, for a proposed objective, especially with reference to the sequence of and time allotted for each item or operation necessary to its completion (Merriam Webster’s Dictionary, 2004). In this study, it refers to the sequence of time allotted by the SPS senior students in English and in their sport specialization.
Special Program in Sports (SPS) Curriculum. This term refers to one of the specialized curriculums offered among some of the secondary schools in the Philippines. It is in line with the efforts of the Department of Education (DepEd) to institutionalize a program that will identify or discover students with potential talent in sports and hone their skills for higher levels of athletic competitions (Bureau of Secondary Education, 2009). In this study, the term is used in the same context.
State of Mind This term refers to a temporary psychological state; the mood or the mental state at a particular time (Merriam Webster’s Dictionary, 2004). In the study, it refers to the preference and mind set of the SPS senior students when it comes to English and to their sport specialization.

METHODOLOGY
This chapter discusses the research methods employed in the study. It includes research design, respondents of the study, research instrument, data gathering procedure and the statistical treatment of the data.
Research Design The study employed the descriptive survey method to generate, to analyze and to interpret the factors that affect the performance in English of the SPS senior students. The researchers had chosen this as the most appropriate design for this study since it is a general procedure used to discover facts on which professional judgment could be based (Rivera et al., 2007).
Respondents of the Study The researchers have utilized the non-probability purposive sampling to select the respondents. Purposive sampling otherwise called deliberate sampling is a design where the researchers select the respondents who are best qualified to achieve the objectives of the study (Rivera et al., 2007). Half of the population which is twenty-seven (27) of the SPS IV- Bonifacio students of Tagum City National Comprehensive High School were the respondents for this study. The respondents who perform least in English were identified with the assistance of the section’s English Teacher. The selected SPS senior students of TCNCHS were chosen by the researchers as the respondents for this study because they were best qualified to achieve the objectives of the study.
Research Instrument The researchers used a questionnaire as an instrument for gathering the needed data. The questionnaire was designed to determine the factors that affect the SPS senior students' performance in English. The questionnaire was consist of 9-item situations which was divided into three categories: physical constrain, state of mind and schedule. Each category was composed of three (3) situations that are answerable by yes or no. The survey helped the researchers to identify the factor that affects most and the factor that brought lesser impact on the performance in English of SPS senior students.
Data Gathering Procedure

In gathering the data of this study, the researchers had undergone several processes:

Figure 2. Flow Chart of the Procedure

Step 1: Formulation of the survey questionnaire The researchers formulated a survey questionnaire that was used during the conduct of the study.
Step 2: Asking permission to the school principal A permission was asked from the school principal of Tagum City National Comprehensive High School, Dr. Melquiades H. Astorga.
Step 3: Administration of the survey The researchers administered the survey to the SPS IV- Bonifacio students of Tagum City National Comprehensive High School. With the assistance of the section’s English Teacher, the researchers selected and conducted the survey among the twenty-seven (27) least performing students in English.
Step 4: Summarization of the result The researchers recorded and summarized the result of the survey given to the twenty-seven (27) selected students of SPS IV-Bonifacio.
Step 5: Interpretation of the gathered data The researchers interpreted the recorded and summarized result of the survey. The factor that affects most and the factor that affects least were also identified in this step.
Statistical Treatment of the Data The data that was gathered by the researchers were analyzed with the use of percentage formula:

The formula above enabled the researchers to identify the factor that affects most and the factor that affects least on the performance in English of SPS senior students.

PRESENTATION AND ANALYSIS OF FINDINGS This chapter mainly deals with the descriptive presentation of the data gathered and the comprehensive discussion of the findings of the study including the interpretation and its implication. The factors affecting the performance in English of senior students in Special Program in Sports of Tagum City National Comprehensive High School was presented in Table 1.
Table 1
Summary of the Factors Affecting the Performance of Senior Students in Special Program in Sports Curriculum

|ANSWERS |Physical Constraint |State of Mind |Schedule |
| |Frequency |% |Frequency |% |Frequency |% |
|YES |24 |30 |38 |47 |61 |75 |
|NO |57 |70 |43 |53 |20 |25 |
|TOTAL |81 |100 |81 |100 |81 |100 |

Result of the study revealed that thirty percent (30%) of the total number of SPS senior students’ responses in Physical Constrain are yes while seventy percent (70%) of it are no. In State of Mind, forty-seven percent (47%) of the students’ responses are yes while fifty-three percent (53%) are no. This means that the number of students who disagree that Physical Constrain and State of Mind could affect their performance in English is greater than those who agree. However, both of them could still affect the SPS students’ performance in English. In Schedule, seventy-five percent (75%) of the total number of responses are yes while twenty-five percent (25%) of the answers are no. This means that the number of students who agree that Schedule could affect their performance in English is greater than those who disagree. Therefore, physical constrain, state of mind and schedule could affect the SPS senior students’ performance in English. However, the factor which affects most on the SPS senior students’ performance in English is the schedule which had the highest number of responses in yes. In contrast, the factor that brought lesser impact on the students’ performance in English is physical constrain which had the lowest number of responses in yes. This result was supported by the study conducted in California State University that a student who devotes his spare time in sport activities spends less time on studies. This could affect the student’s grades if he would not spend enough time studying (Spreitzer and Pugh, 2003).

Study Habits

...Many problems are mentioned except the problem regarding the attitudes of the students toward their academic performance. There is a usual observation and protest of the secondary school teachers regarding the products of the elementary level of education or the foundation of their learning. They said that the pupils do not know how to study on their own initiative. Some cannot work out their assignments; others cannot take part actively in the class recitation, and others do not know the art of note taking. There have been many instances which showed that majority of the students display inability to discriminate between relevant and irrelevant information they got from their references. Quite a number of students simply pick up the words from the pages of the books or printed materials while comprehending the meaning of it. These and many others are results of poor method of study habits. Thus, developing the youth requires early training in the schools.

Determinants of Study Habits

...FACTORS AFFECTING THE HOURS SPENT BY CBAA STUDENTS ON STUDYING REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE Success in school is not so much determined by sheer intelligence as knowing how to study. Studying is a skill. Being successful in school requires a high level of study skills. Students must first learn these skills, practice them and develop effective study habits in order to be successful. Very often the study habits and practices developed and used in high school do not work for students in college. Good study habits include many different skills: time management, self-discipline, concentration, memorization, organization, and effort. Desire to succeed is important, too( TermpaperWarehouse.com). College students have many obstacles to overcome in order to achieve their optimal academic performance. It takes a lot more than just studying to achieve a successful college career. Different stressors such as time management, financial problems, sleep deprivation, social activities, and for some students even having children, can all pose their own threat to a student’s academic performance as well as the hours they spend on studying (Womble, 2004). Study habits are the ways that students study- the habits that they have formed during their school years. Study habits can be good ones, or bad ones. Good study habits include being organized, keeping good notes, reading the textbook, listening in class, and working every day....

According to Manali Oak, “Education gives us knowledge of the world around us. It develops us in a perspective of looking at life. It helps us build opinions and have points of view on things in life. People debate over the subject whether education is the only thing that gives knowledge. Some say, education is the process of gaining information about the surrounding world while knowledge is something very different. They are right. But then, information cannot be converted into knowledge without the catalyst called education.” Information is everywhere. But it’s not enough that we just gain information. We need education for us to be able to understand and interpret it. Through education, we develop proper attitudes, values and behavior towards other people. We learn how to interact using good manners and appropriate conduct with the people around us. “The words ‘cultivate’ and......
