This research is on the study of the use
of instructional materials in some selected secondary schools in Ilaje Local
Government Area of Ondo State. The entire project will be divided into five
chapters. The first chapter will deal with the introduction and statement of
the problem relating to the subject matter. The second chapter will deal with
the literature review of all relevant tests published. The third chapter will
deal with the research methodology in this research, questionnaire method. The
fourth chapter will deal with the presentation of data and data analysis. The
data findings will also be discussed while the fifth and final chapter possible
recommendations and to improve the use of instructional in some selected
secondary schools in IlajeLocal Government Area in particular.
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 Physics 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 Ondo 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
Physics 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.
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
The secondary aim of this study is finding out all about the use
of visual aid in teaching of Physics in some selected secondary schools in
IlajeLocal Government Area, Ondo State.
It is observed that most teachers of Physics in the secondary
school do not use audio/visual aid to promote learning of this crucial subject.
For the purpose of this study, the following questions were posed.
Are audio/visual aid provided for use in the teaching of Physics in school?
Is it through the government provision that the aids are made available, or is
it the school authority concerned that make the provision?
SCOPE OF STUDY
This study was conducted in selected secondary school in Ilaje
Local Government Area Ondo State
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
The purpose of this project work is to identify the following.
1. Making teaching and learning more
interesting and giving student opportunity to participate.
2. Examining the effect of audio/visual
aid material in student’s performance.
3. Identify some of the problem, which
inhibit the use of audio/visual materials.
4. Offering suggestion on how effectively
and efficiently to with the use of audio/visual material.
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
The significance of this study is to examine the importance of
audio/visual aid in the teaching of reading Physics in secondary
This study will aid in spelling pronunciation and fluency of
student in reading
It will suggest meaningful way of handing the aid to bring about
positive change in the student-reading pattern. It will also help to suggest
relevant aid to be used for each of the class concerned it will as well suggest
areas and how to make the aid available to the school that are lacking.
