Towards Determining and Developing an Appropriate Video Programme for In-Service Training of Primary School Teachers in Kenya. African Studies in Curriculum Development & Evaluation. No. 52.
Mutiso, Margaret A.
A study evaluated the social studies program in Kenya's Primary Education Project Schools as a prerequisite to designing and developing appropriate video media for future training of Kenya's inservice teachers. A questionnaire, a teaching-learning observation schedule, and informal interviews were used for collecting data from teachers in 49 trial schools, and several headmasters and parents. These instruments were prepared to help answer questions aimed at finding out teachers' familiarity with content and methodology of social studies, teachers' and pupils' reactions to various social studies units, and teachers' and parents' attitudes toward the subject. Data analysis showed that teachers used recommended teaching strategies and that both students and teachers were enthusiastic about social studies. Because teaching material was found to be lacking, a recommendation was made to prepare a video program illustrating effective use of field trips and resource people in teaching and learning. Such a program is outlined and includes a shooting/editing script and commentary. Many of the research instruments are appended, and numerous tables display study data. (JMK)
