Abstract:

This study determines the teleologic explanations and anthropomorphic language of students in Human Reproduction and Reproductive System as influenced by their age, sex, high school they graduated from, ethnic affiliation, and place of residence. With the employment of One Group Pretest-Posttest Design of the Pre-experimental Designs and Explicative-Reductive Method, the cruxes of this study were the teleologic explanations and anthropomorphic language of the respondents’ in human reproduction and reproductive system in terms of penis (buto); vagina (uki); menstruation (regla); semen (kasset); masturbation (panagsalsal); pre-coition (sakbay ti panag-iyot); coition proper (madama a panag-iyot); post-coition (kalpasan ti panag-iyot); conception period (panagnginaw); giving birth (panaganak); and postnatal routine (panagtanggad), and their effect on the classroom pedagogical intervention. It was ascertained that select concepts of Buto, Kalpasan ti Panag-iyot, and Panagnginaw posted significant difference at .05 level of significance. Albeit the teaching model failed to interact with the variables set forth in the study, e.g. age, sex, high school graduated from, address, and ethnicity, the Pretest Posttest results posted significant difference at the end of the treatment condition. This means that teleology and anthropomorphism are correctible in nature.This study determines the teleologic explanations and anthropomorphic language of students in Human Reproduction and Reproductive System as influenced by their age, sex, high school they graduated from, ethnic affiliation, and place of residence.
