ATTITUDE OF COLLEGIAL TEACHING AND VERBAL-INTERACTION ON PERFORMANCE IN BASIC SCIENCE AMONG JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS IN NIGERIA

CHAPTER ONE

THE PROBLEM

1.1 Introduction

Science is a household name in the world today. It has made rapid progress and completely transformed outwardly the manner of human existence. Science has revolutionized man’s thinking and behaviour so much that its meaning and the roles it plays in human development has to be made clear. Gottlieb, (2004) defined science as intellectual activities carried out by scientists designed to discover information about the natural world in which we live and to discover ways in which this information can be organized to benefit human race. Michael, (2007) identified science as a body of knowledge which is acquired through observation and systematic experimentation. On their part, Mogbo, Gana, & Alabi (2012) defined science as a way of knowing, a systematic method of learning about nature, based on observation and testing leading to the formulation of hypothesis, facts, laws, and theories

1.2 Statement of the Problem

Basic Science as designed by the curriculum planners is to be taught by a single expert in the subject. But experience had shown that every Basic Science teacher in the junior secondary school do take side (Ajayi 2016). This is because the teachers are trained in particular science discipline like Biology, Chemistry, or Physics, therefore are bias. Being bias in specific aspects of the subject does mar the attainment of designer’s objectives in the subject. There is the likelihood that some aspects of the subject will be left partially taught or not taught at all. The challenge has further been aggravated by teachers’ interest and attitudes towards the subject. As a result of all the effects mentioned and even more, the performance of students in Basic Science has been a growing concern in schools in recent times (Olatoye, 2009). To this effect scholars have further carried out studies to investigate the factors that may be responsible for the unfortunate situation. .
