Republic of the PhilippinesMindanao State UniversityGeneral Santos City “Impact of English, Math, Science and Social Sciencegrades in the Academic Performance of the 4th Year AB- SociologyStudents in their Major Subjects” Submitted By:Hanna Claire A. Jarabelo Submitted To:Prof. Mario Aguja Sociology studies the interaction of peopleliving in the society. How they affect the society and how the society affectsthem. It studies the people as a whole and not by individuality. Sociologistsare the people who studies sociology. They analyze and understand the waypeople behave in the community and also they find solution to the existingphenomenon or social problem in the society.
Sociologists are important in thesociety it is because they make the lives of the people in the communityeasier. They solve problems in the community that we find difficult, so it isappropriate that we must have a reliable sociologist that we can rely on. Theymust have all the skills that a good sociologist has. A good sociologist mustbe good at reading comprehension, writing, critical thinking, analyticalskills, complex problem solving and communication.From these past few years I observed thatmost of the students enrolled from sociology department hates or does not dowell in Math and English. So maybe in their high school years they are not alsodoing well in these subjects. As a social scientist in the future they mustpossessed all the skills of a good sociology for them to be able to do theirjob productively. English is a subject that can help you develop you readingcomprehension, writing and communication.
Social science also develops your communicationskills. Math develops your complex problem skills and science develops yourcritical thinking and analytical skills. If you are not doing well in thesesubjects then you probably failed to develop these skills and will give youdifficulties in passing the major subjects. A graduated student from the sociologydepartment who doesn’t have yet fully harnessed the skills of a good sociologyis a social problem. Instead in helping and finding solution to existingproblems in the society they give problems instead.
It is because what thesociety need is a reliable and productive social scientist that can understandand analyze things and not an ignorant-want- to-be-social-scientist. What Iwant to study is that if there is an effect of high school grades of 4th yearAB-Sociology students in Math, English, Science, and Social Science in theiracademic performance in their major subjects. And also I want to know why studentswho are not good at math and English are enrolled in AB-Sociology when in factthe students that are need in the sociology department are good at solving andwriting.Ineducational institutions, success is measured by academic performance, or howwell a student meets standards set out by local government and the institutionitself.
Although education is not the only road to success in the workingworld, much effort is made to identify, evaluate, track and encourage theprogress of students in schools. Parents care about their child’s academicperformance because they believe good academic results will provide more careerchoices and job security. Schools, though invested in fostering good academichabits for the same reason, are also often influenced by concerns about theschool’s reputation and the possibility of monetary aid from government institutions,which can hinge on the overall academic performance of the school. State andfederal departments of education are charged with improving schools, and sodevise methods of measuring success in order to create plans for improvement. (Melissa.J. 2017)From our childhood until our adulthood we arestudying different subject matters. And as our level raises the difficulty ofthese subject matters also rises from easy to hard, from simple to complex.
Weneed to pass those subjects for us to be able to proceeds a higher level. Incollege we have what we called majors and minor subjects. A major is a fieldwhere students focus during the course of his/her degree. It is the student’s main field ofspecialization during his or her associates or undergraduate studies whichwould be in addition to, and may incorporate portions of, a core curriculum.The core curriculum covers a range of subjects giving the student or learner agood basis of knowledge and exposure. In college, students are expected to do wellin their major subjects or be able to master them. Have skills that are essentialin to their field and be productive and reliable in their work field.
Collegeis the training ground of your future work. It gives you knowledge of what willyou be and what will you do in the future. Whilea minor is a secondary concentration of courses that often complements theMajor. These are the subjects that are related or have significance in theirmajor or subject of specialization. A person can get these skills through yearsof studying. From child to adulthood we are studying, we study differentsubject matters.
Most of these subjects are English, Math, Science and SocialScience. These are the subjects that we are repeatedly studying fromkindergarten until high school. But even though we frequently study them we canstill not master it thoroughlyYears of studying will develop these skills In sociology, Most of these subject matters areMath, Science, English and Social Science. And even though we study those subjectmatters in a continuous way some of us can’t still master them thoroughly. Paradigm: Figure 1
