INFLUENCE OF TEACHING PRACTICE ON BUSINESS EDUCATION STUDENTS PERFORMANCE IN COLLEGES OF EDUCATION

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1 Background to the Study
Teaching is one of the oldest, respected and noble professions in the world and
it occupies a high place of importance in developed and developing countries. In
Nigeria, teaching constitutes one of the most important professions required for a
successful execution of national plans and has significant role in the growth and
development of individuals and the nation at large. To qualify as a teacher in business
education programme, students must pass all their required courses; in addition to
undergoing six months teaching practice exercise (NCCE, 2008). Teaching Practice
(T.P) is one of the most important and formative experiences of every teacher-intraining.
It is the best opportunity for students in Faculties of Education in Universities
or Colleges of Education to build a portfolio and learn the best teaching skills within
the watchful eyes of a cooperating institution. During the exercise, institutions and
school-based mentors are expected to observe the students’ progress, behaviour and
attitude at school, and assess the student teachers’ practical teaching and learning
activities according to specific guidelines. This practical training provides students
with an opportunity to put theories into practice and to develop a deeper understanding
of educational principles and their implications for learning.

During the training, students are provided with the range of experiences that
would expose them to the expectations of the teaching profession. It also exposes the
students to the practical use of teaching methods, teaching strategies, teaching
principles and techniques in a real life situation, particular as it affeTS classroom
performance institutional and noon instructional activities. Indeed teaching practice
can be seen as a culminating experience in teacher preparation as provides opportunity for a beginning teachers to become socialized in various aspects of profession. This is why Perry (2004) points out that, teaching practice adds meaning to the knowledge which student-teachers acquired in the real classroom situation. It is during teaching practice that knowledge is affirmed.

Teaching skills (TS) refer to the mental activity including thinking, remembering, learning and using language that a teacher uses in the classroom. TS focus on the understanding of information and concepts and relate the concepts, break down information and rebuild with logical connections to increase retention of material and understanding. Teaching skills approach emphasizes on the development of thinking skills and processes as a means to enhance learning. The objective of teaching skills (TS) is to enable all students to become more strategic, self-reliant, flexible, and productive in their learning endeavors (Scheid, 1993). According to Halpern, (2006),
TS is based on the assumption that there are identifiable cognitive strategies, previously believed to be utilized by only the best and the brightest students, which can be taught to most students.

Statement of the Problem
Teaching implies the roles of impacting knowledge in a clear and structured
way, to explain correct solutions, to give students clear and resolvable problems, and to
ensure calm and concentration in the classroom. In education, it is believed that
practices and attitudes are important for understanding and improving educational
processes. In order to achieve the standards required for qualified teacher status, an
NCE Business Education student in educational programme is required undergo
teaching practice for a period of six months in primary or secondary school. The
exercise is aimed at inducting student teachers more fully into the professional work of
teachers (Perry 2004). To this effect, the student teachers are expected to perform all
the responsibilities of a teacher which are exciting but challenging. The experience will
enable student teachers to cope with unfamiliar situations, controlling and managing
learners or establishing working relationship with the mentor or supervisor.
