Abstract: "The study aimed to determine the effectiveness of integrating news-feature style in teaching writing to the Grade 11 students of Balite National High School, a public secondary school in the Philippines, in terms of grammatical accuracy, content and development, organization and structure, and mechanics of writing. This also determined the level of increase between pretest and posttest results in control and experimental groups, the significant difference on the writing competency of the subjects in the control group and experimental group before and after experimentation, and if the writing competency of the subjects in the experimental group better than the control group after experimentation. This study employed a quasi-experimental research design. Data were gathered from the 30 Grade 11 students of Balite National High School using Assessment Test in Writing (ATW). Statistical tools used in analyzing data were Weighted Mean and Paired-sample t-test. Results indicated that students have reached below expectations rating in both control and experimental groups involving the competencies such as grammatical accuracy, content and development, organization and structure, and mechanics of writing. The students’ writing competencies were at a low level before the instruction. During the posttest, three of the mentioned competencies except for the mechanics of writing increased but still in low expectation level. The study concluded that either in the control or experimental group, the students have similarly experienced challenges making them reached below expectations and meet expectations level. Furthermore, teaching writing with news-feature style is more effective in improving the grammatical accuracy as well as organization and structure writing competencies than the traditional teaching style. Thus, integrating a news-feature style in teaching writing is encouraged."
