Data analysis and discussion
Teaching and learning activities are interesting when
instructional materials are used effectively and efficiently in a
classroom-teaching situation. It is necessary for the teacher in the learning
of English in Nigeria to use visual aid material as instructional tools in
order to make their teaching more interesting that is to arouse the learning
interest, sustain their attention for effective learning. But the problem in
many secondary schools in OSUN State as else where in Nigeria is that of the
instructional material like audio/visuals are not available and even where they
are, the teachers do not use them effectively.
The reason for this attitude may be because teachers engage
themselves in so many other relevant or irrelevant activities. The desire and
haste of some teacher to cover the syllabus or scheme of work instead of making
their teaching more meaningful and imparting. Often time some teaching goals
depend on material for planning and utilization of instructional material for
some teacher the production of instructional material is only for passing their
examination the training college and not for actual use in the classroom.
There is also problem of non-availability of audio/visual for
which teachers alone may not be blamed. The heads often do not motivate the
teacher in terms of providing instructional materials.
Furthermore, most school lack of funds and as a result, they find
it difficult to purchase the required audio/visual aid.
Generally, failure to use audio/visual material in the teaching of
Social studies result in lack of interest among student in learning activities
which affect performance in school and pupils not being able to assimilate
lesson at their own rate and pace.
