This quasi-experimental research aimed to study the role of debate in the students’ achievement in power generation. 120 students coming from two selected high schools were match-paired to comprise the traditional and the debate classes. Conducted in two separate institutions from November, 2022 to January, 2023, this mixed pretest-posttest method of research utilized the researcher-made Achievement Test in Power Generation Questionnaire. The inferential analysis is assumed at 0.05 level of significance. Observations, interviews, and FGDs were used for qualitative analysis. There were significant differences (1) between the pretest and the posttest scores in both the traditional group and debate group; (2) in the mean gain between the traditional and debate groups; and (3) in the posttest scores using the two strategies, when classified according to MFI. Students perceived debate as an effective, engaging, competitive, relevant, fun, and enlightening strategy in teaching power generation. They said that it likewise honed their science process, leadership, communication, social, argumentation, interpersonal, and research skills. With these, the researcher was able to formulate the 3H (Hook, Heart, Hutzpah) Theory which posits a three-pronged pedagogical approach in the formulation of an effective and efficient teaching strategy in physics.
