Background/Objectives: This study assessed the Strategic Intervention Material (SIM) effectiveness in Social Studies - Economics among Grade 9 Junior High School of Zambales National High School, Iba Zambales, Philippines during remote/distance learning (COVID19 pandemic) school year 2020-2021. The Strategic Intervention Material (SIM) is a learning material that helps the students to master competency-based skills which were not able to develop during a regular class. The present study focused on the students' performance before and after implementing SIM-based instruction on Economics. Methods/Statistical analysis: This study utilized a descriptive – experimental research design. A total of 259 students and 39 educators were the respondents. Findings: Findings revealed that academic performance of the students before the utilization of Strategic Intervention Material (SIM) in Economics resulted in a descriptive equivalent of Did Not Meet Expectation or Fair. At the same time, the performance of the same group of students after the utilization SIM in Economics was Satisfactory. The t-Test results found a highly significant difference in the pre-test and post-test versions of the students utilizing the SIM in Economics. When the SIM was subjected to evaluation by experts (educator-evaluators), it was found that the Content, Structure, and Usability compositions/requirements of acceptability and usefulness were very evident. Improvements/Applications: This study suggested the consideration of preparation of SIM on enhancing the development of desirable values and traits and free from bias contents; more active learning activities aimed to increase motivation, understanding and for the development of critical and higher-order thinking; and better efficiency of its assessment tools and techniques.
