This study is qualitative research utilizing the multiple case study design to determine the common symptoms of ten (10) individual cases with GAD from each of their psychologists. Interview guide question was developed to set a direction in gathering the clients’ nature and condition. A thematic analysis using Braun and Clarke’s (2006) method was used to formulate relevant extracts' themes to understand their common symptoms. The findings revealed that adolescents who are diagnosed with GAD have manifestations of physiological, cognitive, and behavioral symptoms. This study posits an easier understanding of their symptoms in the context of a Filipino setting through their psychologists' transcriptions. With the findings, a better understanding of the perspective of adolescents with GAD can be conveyed to the community in preventing public nd self-stigma amongst them. This is also a step forward in designing effective psychotherapeutic interventions tailored to their needs. A program for their mental health protection and promotion is also recommended for further studies.</p> Alexandria Blake C. Real, Jennifer M.

This course comprises various mathematics disciplines th</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">at aims to expose undergraduate students to various domains of knowledge and ways of co</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">mprehending social and natural realities, developing intellectual competencies and civic capacities. T</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">hrough collaborative teaching, particularly on having more than one instructor in a class could offer a</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;"> blending of expertise, complementary personalities, and a balanced approach to grading. Thus, relay t</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">eaching method was used. The relay teaching method in this study refers to taking turns in succession i</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">n teaching students the different lessons on Data Management as a selected topic in Mathematics in t</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">he Modern World. This study utilized the pretest-posttest research design with no control group, with t</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">hree groups of education students were subjected to the relay teaching method. The performances o</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">f the students during the pretest and posttest were measured using a valid and reliable multiple-</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">choice type of test. The mean, t-test, and ANCOVA were used to analyze the data. To summarize the f</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">eedback of students, it employed qualitative data analysis. The findings of the study revealed that t</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">here is an improvement in the level of performance of the students on data management with the i</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">mplementation of the relay teaching method. The performance of the students before and after e</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">xposure to relay teaching was significantly different. The BTLEd students have significantly better p</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">erformance than the BPEd students. The relay teaching method significantly helped improve the p</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">erformance of the BTLEd students as compared to the BPEd students. The use of relay teaching could b</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">e more effective with enrichment activities such as coaching and sharing of lecture notes, social n</span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">etworking, and the use of social media and the internet.</span></p> Joseph G.
