This study measured the pedagogical practices in teaching the English language of selected high school teachers in Taguig City. It was inspired by Weston-Cranton's Learning Taxonomy wherein it incorporates the level of learning to appropriate teaching methodologies. The researchers utilized descriptive method to describe the data and the characteristics of the study, which were selected through cluster sampling technique and data were gathered through questionnaires. Finding showed that most of the respondents positively manifest the pedagogical practices (organization, control and discipline, dealing with students, evaluation, lesson presentation, and grammar and speaking) in the classroom setting. From the findings, the study recommends that teachers should undergo seminars and trainings in using non-traditional instructional methods. Likewise, schools should support such trainings and encourage their teachers to incorporate technology and other advancements in the teaching of the English language. It is also recommended that school heads should conduct random observations to check whether teachers are prepared in terms of in-dept knowledge about the subject matter. Furthermore, this study recommends an enrichment program to enhance the pedagogical practices in teaching the English language.
