Winicel May C. Ancheta and Ronald Candy S. Lasaten
Abstract—Using the Research and Development (R&D) methodology, this study aimed to develop a proposed training program to address the concerns of 70 Grade 8 teachers in the implementation of the K to 12 English Curriculum, as a result of the analysis on the stages of concern of the teachers. Data on socio-demographic profile of the teachers were analyzed using frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviation, while their stages of concern were analyzed and interpreted using frequency, percentage, and Peak Stage Score Interpretation. Meanwhile, Pearson’s r correlation was used to determine the relationship between the teachers’ stages of concern and their socio-demographic profile. Mean was used to determine the validity of the proposed training program. Findings show that the teachers’ stage of concern is at Stage 0 (Awareness). The teachers’ stages of concern have a significant relationship to the teachers’ age, years of teaching experience, educational attainment, and number of trainings and seminars attended related to the K to 12 English Curriculum. The proposed training program is valid in terms of its rationale, objectives, content and methodology, manpower resources, budgetary allocation, and evaluation instrument.

Index Terms—Concerns-based adoption model (CBAM), K to 12 English curriculum, stages of concern (SoC), training program.
