This study was conducted to determine the effectivity of utilizing the reading aloud and repeated reading strategies of the Callan Method in improving the reading skills of the Grade 8 students from the selected high school in Surigao del Norte. The 29 students participating in this study have shown poor reading performance based on the results of the reading inventory of the Phil-IRI in 2020. The quantitative data of the study were the results of the pre-test and post-test of the Cambridge A2 Key for Schools test. Results revealed that there was a significant difference in the reading skills of the Grade 8 students upon the completion of the 120 required hour of Callan- mediated classes with the mean and standard deviation of (M=15.83, SD=4.60) as compared to the pre-test results (M=10.62, SD=3.51), t(29)=-8.39, p < 0.05. Likewise, the teaching intervention have improved the reading proficiency of the students with an effect size of (Cohen’s d = 1.55). Furthermore, the qualitative data of the study looked into the affordances and challenges of using the Callan Method in reading. Students identified the affordances of the method to be as follows; guided reading for better understanding of context, repetition practices for mastery, collaborative learning, language translation for unfamiliar vocabulary and familiarity with the new method. The challenges identified during the utilization of the method, are the following; the fast-paced instruction, unfamiliar vocabulary in the text and unfamiliarity with the method in the teaching of reading. A "Callan Method in improving reading: The revised way" booklet was developed in the process to serve as a lesson guide for teachers in reference to the teaching of reading. To deepen the knowledge and understanding of the Callan method, the teacher-researcher calls future researchers for an in-depth study on the use of the method while considering learning objectives and targeted skills.
