Education suffered greatly from the COVID-19 pandemic, which necessitated the provision of distant, emergency instruction by teachers.While educational institutions work to reduce the possibility of community transmission, online learning has emerged as a vital lifeline.To reach students remotely and minimize disruptions to education brought on by the COVID-19 epidemic, the Department of Education in the Philippines has produced synchronous and asynchronous instruction for use at the elementary school level.When classes follow predetermined schedules and times, this is called synchronous learning. Students can finish their assignments at their own pace in asynchronous classrooms.This research study aimed to analyze the effects of synchronous and asynchronous instruction on learners’ reading motivation during the Covid-19 pandemic. This study made use of the descriptive-correlational research design. Descriptive research used quantitative methods to describe the conditions during synchronous and asynchronous instruction implementation on learners’ reading motivation. Purposive sampling was used in choosing the 110 participants from DepEd elementary schools. The findings reveal that learners were interested and motivated while attending the synchronous and asynchronous mode of instruction during the Covid-19 pandemic. Reading motivation was discovered to be a strong indicator of reading ability using synchronous and asynchronous instruction. It implies that reading motivation is a key element that supports the development of these flexible modalities as part of the new standard teaching for the kids in the Department of Education or DepEd in the Philippines. In conclusion, synchronous and asynchronous instruction on learners’ reading motivation is effective during the Covid-19 pandemic.
