In-Service Training for Primary School Teachers: Need, Focus, Problem and Prospects
No Thumbnail Available
Concerned about the dearth of continuous professional development for teachers in Nigeria, the empirical article analysed and evaluated the content, implementation modes, and perceived benefits of two training workshops given to primary school teachers of English. Topics covered include effective language teaching strategies, development and use of instructional materials, understanding and interpreting the curriculum, selecting textbooks, recognition of the learner’s needs and upgrading teacher’s skills and competencies in speaking, reading and grammar. The feedbacks, which were positive, were used to strongly argue for the need for regular and content specific training workshops for teachers at all educational levels.
