Abstract

The newest generation of students entered the first batch of Senior High School in the K to 12 Curriculum. The millennials, as so-called, are vastly different from their predecessors. One of these many differences is on how they learn and what would be the teaching strategies used by the teachers in delivering instruction. This study seeks to determine the teaching strategies used by the teachers in teaching millennials senior high school students, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each teaching strategy. This study also examines how millennial senior high school students respond to current teaching strategies employed in the classroom, and aligning teaching strategies and instruction with the ways students learn best is the goal in secondary education. For this study, students and teachers of senior high school, from Grade 11 and Grade 12 were the primary participants. The senior high school students also underwent an interview to provide them the unique opportunity to express their perspectives about the ways they prefer to learn. The intent of this study is to provide senior highschool teachers, as well as teachers from other grade levels an opportunity to see through the perspectives of their students and to determine if the teaching strategies used in the classroom instruction are preferable by millennial learners. The findings of this study, in brief, are that millennial senior high school students did respond favorably to millennialpreferred instructional techniques.
