THE PROBLEMS AND PROSPECTS OF USING TEACHING AIDS IN THE TEACHING OF CHEMISTRY IN SOME SELECTED SECONDARY SCHOOLS

ABSTRACT

This study was to examine the problems and prospects of using teaching aids, which is reduced among students and people of Oredo Local Government Area. The objectives were to enlighten individuals on the problems and prospects of using teaching aids in teaching chemistry in secondary schools in Edo State to explore the numbers of ways people can benefit from programmed together with a view of knowing the merit and demerit. And if necessary to ensure that the people practice the principle of using teaching aids and learning chemistry. This study was obtained using questionnaires without 15 items. The data collected were coded, analyzed through the use of simple percentages the analysis were carried out to facilitate discussion of the research questions.

INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

This study examined the problems and prospects of using teaching aids in teaching of chemistry in some selected secondary school in Edo State a case study of Oredo LGA. Though, many people would agree that there is an observable fall in standard of education in Edo State especially some selected secondary school in Oredo Local Government Area of Edo State. Nobody in his wildest imagination would have believed that secondary schools in Edo State has fallen to an abysmally low level as Nigeria education observer study came up with a report that in some selected secondary schools in Edo State of Nigeria has degenerated in the past ten (10) years.

This was reported as one of the lead headlines in the vanguard Newspaper, one of the Nigeria’s major daily newspapers quoted the educational observer sponsored study that; the teachers in some selected secondary schools in Edo State of Nigeria are poorly trained on the use of teaching aids, unproductive on the job and inadequate teaching aids most especially chemistry. According to this report, the poor performance of teachers in some selected secondary schools in Edo State of Nigeria; poor mastery of chemistry sas a subject and lack of requisite technical aids skills. It was ascertained in the report that the deficiencies in both vital areas.

Through the study may have identified major areas of the decline in the actual problem may have its roots at secondary school level. For it is at secondary school level that the potential student is given adequate foundation in the use of teaching aids in teaching chemistry ads science subject. A mastery of writing and understanding chemistry is highly desirable, yet its teaching and learning is beset by a myriad of problems at the secondary school level (Kolawole, 1998).   

PROBLEM OF THE STUDY

Majority of the teachers who employed into some selected secondary schools in Edo State have no ample opportunity to learned chemistry through the help of teaching aids their educational levels, some of those teachers who are employed to teach students in some selected secondary schools in Edo State, didn’t qualified to that teaching job. 

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

This research would enlighten individuals on the problems and prospects of using teaching aids in teaching chemistry in secondary school in Edo State. To explore the numbers of ways people can benefit from programmed together with a view of knowing the merit and demerit. And also to ensure that the people practice the principle of using teaching aids and learning chemistry and how to stop the illiterate in use of chemistry in Nigeria population.

SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

The essence of this work is to create awareness to the general public on the problems and prospects of using teaching aids in teaching chemistry in Edo State and also a way of helping them understand the required observation in keeping the rules and regulation of teaching and learning chemistry.

Above all, the research work will also to a great extent act as a springboard to anyone who may wish to make further development on the area referring to the subject matter.   

SCOPE OF THE STUDY

This study is limited to some secondary schools in Oredo Local Government Area of Edo State. 

RESEARCH QUESTIONS

The following research questions have been formulated to guide the study.

Is the attitude of secondary school teachers towards chemistry encouraged?Do the chemistry teachers use appropriate teaching aids in teaching chemistry frequently?Does chemistry teachers in some selected secondary in Edo State qualified for teaching chemistry as a subject?Are there enough teaching aids in some selected secondary school in Edo State?DEFINITION OF TERMS
