PURPOSE This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of Frayer Model a strategy to improve the Science vocabulary of Grade 9 students of Bagbag National High School in Rosario Cavite. DESIGN/ METHODOLOGY/ APPROACH This study used Quasi – Experimental method utilizing the two-group, control group and treatment group, pre-test- post-test design. The chosen participants were sixty (60) students of Grade 9 students of Bagbag National High School. The assessment of the result was conducted through a posttest given to the participants only. T-test is used for two sample means, average means and standard deviation were used to compare the results of the pre-test and post-test. FINDINGS There was a significant difference between the post-test results of the two groups. It means that experimental group has higher test result in Science after being exposed to Frayer Model than the control group. Thus the experimental group performed better than the control group. And also there were a significant difference between the gain scores of the control group and experimental group. The gained score of experimental group were greater than the control group which means that experimental group under Frayer Model was effective. Research Limitation and Implication: Frayer Model focused only on enhancing science vocabulary through the use of graphic organizers and its impact on the achievement level of the student on the Science subject. The Researcher of the study recommends some ways in modifying the use of Frayer Model, depending on the topic needed. The whole study focused on the competencies of the second quarter. Originality/ Value: The study focused on how the Science achievement level learning outcome assessment result can be increased through Frayer Model.
