Chapter 1
In the era of modern technology and globalization, education is considered as a first step for every human activity. It plays an important role in the development of human capability and is linked with an individual well-being and opportunities for better living. It ensures the acquisition of knowledge and skills that enable individual to increase their productivity and improve their quality of life.
Ever since Spanish Era prevailed, Filipinos had been become attached and greatly affected by the mark left onto everyone; the popular so - called “Mañana Habit” which spontaneously came across into everyone’s daily lives that for many, for sure a big cause of having a hard time focusing on some works on a certain day or schedule. Apparently, it had been generation by generation that young and adults perform these habits naturally despite of knowing its very root effect; having low or get better grades even failing grades. As for this matter, students who are significantly concerned regarding grades and class standing are now rapidly gaining numbers, and for one cause; poor/ bad study habit.
Schools, college, and universities have no worth without student. The social and economic development of a country is directly linked with student academic status or performance; the desire of success is derived from individual’s concept of himself and in term of the meaning of various incentives as they spell success and failure in the eye of others. The student performance play an important role in producing the best quality graduates who will become great leaders and manpower for a country thus responsible for the country economic and social development,( Ali et al.,2009) student performance occupies a very important place in education as well as in the learning process. It has long been recognized that in the process of learning the study habits of the student plays an important role in their academic performance. Learning is reflected in the way a student respond to environment, social, emotional and physical stimuli and understands new information. The key to better learning and better academic performance in schools are good teachers, lecturers, good study environment, parent’s cooperation, high quality books and the most important is the study habit. Study habits are learning tendencies that enable students to work privately. Azikiwe (1998) describes the study habit as “the adopted way and manner a student plans his private readings, after classroom learning so as to attain mastery of the subject”. According to her, “good study habits are good assets to learners because the (habits) assist students to attain mastery in areas of specialization and consequent excellent performance, while opposite constitute constraints to learning and achievement leading to failure”. Good (1998) define the term study habits as: The student’s way of study whether systematic, efficient or inefficient etc. Going by this definition it literally means that good study habit produces positive academic performance and good academic status while inefficient study habit leads to academic failure. In Nigeria, there are so many factors influencing the ability of students to cultivate effective and efficient study habit. Ozmert (2005) emphasized the importance of environmental influence as a major factor in the development of students studying habit. In the same vein, Adetunji and Oladeji (2007) submit that the environment of most children is not conducive for studying; it is in the light of this that made some parents to prefer their children to go to boarding school for proper discipline and to inculcate better reading habit.
Good study habits are essential ingredients for excellent academic performances for every student. For study to be effective, Freeman and Mors (1993) have observed that it should be regular, intense and should cover long periods. The habits of studying must be a sustainable one, for that matter students must see the need to develop good study habits. Although studies abound on the causative and predictive nature of factors of study habit on students’ academic achievement, all factors of the variables tend to focus on poor study habit while the effect is yet to be fully accessed on the nations educational development. Study habits are important as they influence the academic performance of students so parents and teachers must help in improving the study habits of students.

Writing is also one of the strategies employed by the third year social work. While the discussion is going-on, they intend to take down notes and when they go out the school they have something to read. Analyzation is also one. There are student that even if they don’t memorize important details, read, take down notes, and review their lessons, they can still sometimes find the answer by simply analyzing the given word or idea to them. Reviewing is also one of the strategies of third year social work. They review their lessons from early time of the night until late at night. In acquiring knowledge, we have our own way to learn. It is really important for us to have our own strategies in studying. A strategy that can make us comfortable to learn many things and explore our mind into our fields. It would be more interesting and challenging to study if we have our own strategy. It’s also important to consider the environment because the environment that we have can also hinder our minds to absorb new idea. We decided to choose this research title or problem because of having curiosity on what are the third year social work strategies strategy using upon learning inside the four corners of the classroom. And why some of them can’t easily adopt this kind of learning strategies and yet they don’t need to explain it by their own. In knowing this strategy, it can help the researcher to also improve their learning strategies and one thing is it can help also those student’s a lot to be able to gain more knowledge easily and understand it. When we are going to look forward into this, students can be able to gain job that they deserve to have without asking help their to their relatives or friends who are in the position and it can also help them uplift their present situation if they are going to apply the different learning strategies.

Conceptual/Theoretical Framework In our entire life, learning is already a part of it. And nowadays we can we can be able to undergone many kinds of strategies in order to learn. They also conduct studies on how we can be able to learn like Pavlov or known as Juan Pavlov (1849-1936). He studied the stimulus to the secretion of saliva in dogs using meat power that cause salivation when put in dog’s mouth. This means, when human see something new or can see new behavior they will surely imitate it or they will adopt it. If what did you show them they will also show the same thing. Skinner’s study the kind of learning in which an animal or person continuous to make a response because they has been reinforced or stops making the response because it has been punished. The paradigm of the study uses the approaches on the input process output. The first frame of the paradigm is the input which includes the profile of the respondents. The second frame of the paradigm is the process which includes the perception of the respondents on the different factors stated in the paradigm. The third frame of the paradigm is the output which shows the result of the study.

INPUT PROCESS OUTPUT 1. Assess the profile of the respondents to Age, gender, civil status, ethnicity and religion 2. Assess the learning strategies employed by the third year social work. 3. Assess the perception of the students/respondents on the learning strategy of social work students and their academic status. 4. Assess the profile of the respondents to Age, gender, civil status, ethnicity and religion 5. Assess the learning strategies employed by the third year social work. 6. Assess the perception of the students/respondents on the learning strategy of social work students and their academic status.

According to Web resources, learning skills for now and for life is one of the most valuable things a teacher can do is to help students prepare for life-long learning. Improve learning skills-concentrating, reading and listening, remembering, using time and more are immediately useful and will be continue paying dividends for a long time. Motivation and learning strategies personal motives can be immediate or long-term, extrinsic or intrinsic. You may be eager to learn because it’s for now, or it will be useful later or both when students discover its fun to learn and think they’ll want to do it more often and more skillfully. Study skill and thinking skills for effective learning study is “the process of applying the mind in order to acquire knowledge” so study skills are learning skills that are also thinking skill when the study includes “careful attention to and critical examination and investigation of a subject.” Learning skills the University of Texas (at Austin) shares their learning skills handouts help you (or your students) improve their learning strategies and skills for writing, math/science reading, graduate exam/placement test preparation, English as foreign language. Test anxiety and optimal performance with principles that are also useful for most non-exam situation in life. Skills and strategies for affecting learning is a collection of useful ideas-gathering by Craig Rusbutt from a variety of books about memory, concentration, active reading and listening, exam preparation and wise of use of time. Because learning and thinking are closely related, modern theories of learning. According to Shawdra and Rusell there is a list of learning strategies for diverse learners. And the following are: Metacognitive when learning a new concept, student must pay attention. This means that educators must create a lesson plan that keep student interested and engaged. Filing in notes, doing note checks and stopping to ask question during a lesson can help student employ this strategies. Effective relate to emotional aspects of learning. Is the student self-motivated? What is her attitude towards the subject? The krathwold taxonomy argues that the effective domain of learning involves willingness, appreciation valuing, organizing and characterizing the information. Social students can build a strong understanding of the subject by interacting with others, either through asking question or having informal discussion about the topic with a partner or a small group. Memorize the three remaining strategies focus on the intellectual aspects of understanding and retaining information. With the memory strategy, educators help students associated the new information with the prior knowledge and engaged their senses in relation to the information. Visual and auditory teaching methods help students use their strategy. Cognitive to use their strategy educators have put students into practice what they have learned through summarizing perhaps with a response journal. Instructors can also provide ways for students to analyze information which help them further understand the concepts. Compensation learning strategy assess what the student have absorbed by having them use new language to explain what they have such as learned such as providing synonyms and analogies. Word association games can help students further understand the new concept and encourage them to guess word meaning, helping cement the new information. According to Wenden and Rubin (1987;19) learning strategies as “any sets of operations, step, plans, routines used by the learners to facilitate the obtaining, storage, retrieval and use of information. Richards and Platt (1992;261) states the learning strategies are “intentional behavior and thoughts used by learners during learning so as to better help them understand learn or remember information.” Faerch Claus and Casper (1983;67) stress that the learning strategy is “an attempt to develop linguistic and socio-linguistic competence in the target language. According to Stern(1992;261) the concept of learning strategy is dependent assumption that learners strategies can be regarded as broadly conceived intentional defections and learning techniques. All language learners use language learning strategies either consciously or unconsciously when processing new information and performing task in the language classroom. Since language classroom is like problem-solving environment in which language learning are likely to face new input and difficult task given by their instructors, learners attempt to find the quickest or easiest way to do what is required that us, using language learning strategies is inescapable. Language learning strategies language learners’ use during the act of processing new information and performing tasks have been identified and described by researchers. According to Tessie J. Rodriguez cited by Josefina E. Gaerlan, Pelia A. Limpingco, Geraldine E. Tria and Juan Barrio, Learning seems to be one process that many people take for granted (just assume it happens and happens basically the same way for the most people)but know very little about. The author definition is comprised of several different components. The Four (4) factors that form the definition of learning: 1. Learning is inferred from a change in behavior or performance 2. Learning is the result of an inferred change in memory 3. Learning is the result of experience 4. Learning is relatively permanent This means that behavior changes that are temporary or due to things like drugs, alcohol and the like are not “learned”.
Behavior potential-once something is learned, an organism can exhibit a behavior that indicates learning as occurred. Thus, once a behavior has been “learned” it can be exhibited by performance of a corresponding behavior.
Learning is relatively durable change in behavior or knowledge that is due to experience.
Types of learning according to Tessie J. Rodriguez: classical conditioning, operant conditioning, and insight conditioning. CLASSICAL CONDITIONING is learning through association. OPERANT CONDITIONING is through consequences and OBSERVATIONAL learning is learning through modeling and observations. INSIGHT LEARNING is a type of learning or problem-solving that happens all of a sudden through understanding the relationships of the various parts of problem rather than through trial and error. Pavlov was studying salivation of dogs. He was measuring the amount of salivation produced by the salivary glands of dogs by presenting them meat powder through a food dispenser. There are several different ways conditioning can occur-order that the stimulus response can occur:
1. Delayed conditioning (forward) - the conditions stimulus presented before the unconditioned stimulus and it (CS) stays on until the stimulus is presented. This is generally the best, especially when the delay is short.
2. Trace conditioning- discrete event is presented, and then the unconditioned stimulus occurs. The shorter the interval the better, but as you can tell, this approach is very effective.
3. Simultaneous conditioning- continued stimulus and unconditioned stimulus presented together.
4. Backward conditioning- unconditioned stimulus occurs before conditioned stimulus.

According to Jasmina Hasanbegovic, learning strategy refer to students self-generated thoughts, feelings and actions which are systematically oriented toward attainment of their goals. Therefore, implemented of appropriate learning strategies is related to student’s self-regulation behavior which in turn should be encouraged by pedagogical designs. Typical strategies questions a learner might ask are: * How to write a project thesis? How do I have to do a literature review? * How to structure my course and lecture notes? How can I cope with note taking? * How to organize my time and keep track of various assignments? * How can I tackle a difficult exercise, e.g. a math problem?
There are two types of learning strategies; globally one could be distinguish among the following kinds:
Disciplinary heuristics (e,g. “Look at this and that” kind of advice), general problem-solving heuristic, metacognition.
2.1 Cognitive vs. behavioral vs. self-regulating Warr and Allan (1998) distinguish between three categories according to the kind of resources used in the regulation of behavior. 1. Cognitive learning strategies: skills in rehearsing a material to be learned or in organizing into the main theme. 2. Behavioral learning strategies: preferences for seeking help from others, for trial and error or for written instruction. 3. Self-regulating strategies: controlling emotions and comprehension.
2.2 metacognition * Blakey and Spence (1990) describes techniques that facilitate metacognition or “thinking about thinking”, citing the educational value of student owned learning, the authors suggest that thinking about one’s own behavior is the first step directing that the learning how to learn. The strategies they discuss as a means to developing metacognition include: “identifying “what you know” and what you don’t know”, “talking about thinking”, “keeping a journal”, “planning and self-regulation”, “debriefing the thinking process”, and self-evaluation.

According to Nicholas Smith reading Strategies among the many strategies to help you student more effectively read and comprehend material employ the self-questioning strategy, the visual imagery and the paraphrasing strategy with the self-questioning strategies, students recognize their own motivation for reading. These create questions in their mind, predict answer and then find the answer as they read. Memorization Strategy several memory strategies exist to help students retain information into several groups, name each group and create a mnemonic for each groups. Writing strategies employ the paragraph writing to help student recognize their ideas, figure and out a point of view and necessary verb tenses used in writing and plan the order by which they will express their ideas. Additionally, have students read and identify spelling and grammatical errors in various writing. Group strategies it is an alternative way to help student learn. You can use groups to have brainstorm writing topics, delivery speeches and play, complete written assignments, all with the aim of helping them learn the information that you have given them. According to Victoria O. Acero, Ph.D, Evelyn S. Javier, Ph.D, Herminia O. Castro MA, Based on what is currently know help explain how people learn and therefore serve as guides for classroom teachers. Currently, behaviors theory, cognitive theory and other theories that fit within each including Piagetian theory are related upon widely and have been found to be most useful. Behavior approaches William James have defined psychology as “the science of mental life.” But the early 1990’s growing numbers of psychologist voiced criticism of the approaches use by scholars to explore conscious and unconscious process.

Two kinds of Conditioning Pavlov’s Classical conditioning modern thinking about the learning started with then startling findings of Juan Pavlov (1949-1886) a distinguished Russian psychologist who made many important contributions to the field of physiology especially on the subject of digestion. He study the stimulus to the secretion of saliva in dogs, using meat powder that cause salivation when put in dogs mouth, even when to puppies who have never before tasted meat. Skinner’s Operant conditioning a kind of learning in which an animal or person continuous to make a response because there has been reinforced or stops making the response because it has been punished, a reinforced is a stimulus that follows a behavior and increase the likelihood that the behavior will be repeated. Punishment is a stimulus that follows a behavior and decrease the likelihood that the behavior will be repeated.

CHAPTER 3 METHODS AND PROCEDURES In this chapter, the following topics will discuss:
a.) Researched Design; b.) Respondents of the study; c.) Data Gathering Tool/Instrument; d.) Data Gathering Procedure and e.) Statistical Tool

Research Design Descriptive method was used as the research design in this study to achieve the purpose of the study. The descriptive research design was used to described and interpret a condition or phenomena. It reveals practices and happenings. This method is used to describe the condition and relationship that exist between the learning strategies of Third year Social Work students and how those factors affect their learning strategies.

Respondents of the Study The respondents of the study are the Third year Social Work students. There are 16 respondents.

Data Gathering Instrument To understand the purpose of this research, the researchers take some steps to formulate instrument use to gather the data of this study. The researcher undergone reading books related to this study, magazines and browsing the internet. After analyzing these materials, an information will gathered from sixteen (16) 3rd year student through the form of questionnaire as the primary instrument used in gathering data and it was constructed using check-response type answering.

Data Gathering Procedure The researchers ask the permission of the school’s administration before distributing the questionnaire to the Social Work 3d year student. The floating of questionnaire was personally administered by the researchers to the respondents.

Statistical Tool The data gathered by the researcher from the respondents were analyzed and interpreted with the use of selected statistical tools.

The water’s depth is calculated by recording the time between the emission of the sound and the reception of an echo as well as the speed at which the sound travels through water. The echosounder first was developed for military purposes, but by the mid-1930s it was used widely for hydrography in Canada. Early echosounders were quite crude and had low resolution (large sonar footprint). They required constant attention to get moderate performance. Advances in digital circuitry and digital signal processing led to modern survey echosounders with high resolution, high precision and good long-time frequency stability. Improvements in transducer materials and design led to narrow-shaped beams capable of resolving small targets on the seabed. When the echosounders replaced the leadline, there was no longer regular sampling of the seabed type. Instead, CHS hydrographers have developed ways to use acoustic backscatter to determine the type of seabed. Sidescan sonar Because the single-beam echosounder is aimed vertically, it cannot capture information on depth or hazards in the spaces between sounding lines. Sidescan sonar grew out of the idea of tilting a broad-beam echosounder to one......

...2 Review of Related Literature and Studies This chapter contains the review of our researchers’ successfully scouted related literatures (both of foreign and local). Foreign Literature Most or, I can say many literatures and studies believe that there are many factors affecting the study habits of a student. One of which, is the number of hours a student spends in class. According to the Palm Beach Community Council (PBBC, 2008), they recommend that students should have at least three hours out of class for every hour spent in one class. They’ve also stated that a student must have a special place to study with plenty of room to work. And students should not be cramped. They presuppose that study time will go better if a learner would take a few minutes before starting, to straighten things up. A desk and straight-backed chair is usually best. “Don’t get too comfortable—a bed is a place to sleep, not to study” as what they’ve said. A student must also have everything close at hand (book, pencils, paper, coffee, dictionary, computer, calculator, tape recorder, etc.) before starting to study. Students are not suggested to spend time on jumping up and down to get things. Frank Pogue (2000) did a research project to determine why students fail. What he founds to be true in that study habits survey, was that more than 30 years ago, still rings true today—students fail because they don’t know how to study. The best advice he could give is to develop sound study skills. In......

Study Habits

...CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION Background of the Study Many studies show that college students’ academic performance and study habits are related (Tope, 2011). However, most colleges and universities indicate that most student are not achieving well as expected (Disney, 2003). One cited reason is their lack of developed learning strategies or study habits. Hence, these students are affected emotionally and may not be interested in learning more due to pressures created by inefficient learning styles and habits. Study habits are actions or manners that enable students to learn independently. It may require time and management. It is an adopted way or style that a student may plan to do private readings, reflect and understand lessons to attain mastery of the subject. According to Azikiwe (as cited by Tope, 2011) good study habits are good assets to learners because it assists students to attain mastery in areas of specialization and consequent excellent performance, while opposite constitute constraints to learning and achievement leading to failure. Developing productive study habits may greatly determine students’ success in taking examinations, earning a degree and completing assignments on time. By nature, habits are regular automatic tasks.

The internet popularly known as the Web has the ability to supply us sufficient amount of information that is greatly beneficial to the users.

It is a very powerful and useful tool to get information from although it really imposes hard on the younger generation. (Jordan, Starsburger, Wilson 2014) Several social media and social networking sites have created environments in which students can work or interact with other individuals concerning school related issues or requirements to enhance their learnings. (Jordan, Starsburger, Wilson, 2014) It is implied that in this era, everything including private things can be shared in the internet.
