    Abstract:
    This study aimed to determine the perceptions of the selected students who have learning difficulties in science and their teachers regarding the effectiveness of using Strategic Intervention Material (SIM) in science. A qualitative phenomenological approach was employed to explore and describe the perceptions of the teacher and students. There were six (6) participants in the study, composed of teachers and students who were purposely selected. The study participants are from one of the public schools in Island Garden City of Samal that has teachers utilizing SIM (Strategic Intervention Material) to aid students’ least learned topics or competencies in science. The researchers used researcher-made questionnaires, which were validated by a panel of experts. The researchers also utilized the focus group discussion employing an open-ended semi-structured interview with the key informants. After gathering the needed data, the researchers used thematic analysis or thematic coding as a tool for analyzing the data and drawing a conclusion. Based on the gathered data from the participants, the researchers noticed three positive themes, which were Strategic Intervention Material aids the least learned competencies, Strategic Intervention Material is simplified, and Strategic Intervention Material improves the performance of the students in class. In addition to this, a student, one of the participants stated that after they utilized Strategic Intervention Material, there had been an increase in her grades. Because of the positive results of the gathered data, it is possible that Strategic Intervention Material will prosper in the near future as a material that aids least the learned competencies of students. With these results also, it was recommended that the Science teachers make their own SIM, school administrators should include the use of SIM in their planning, and future researchers should conduct a similar study with more participants and a wider scope.
