ABSTRACT

Domestic Waste Disposal investigated the extent of the use of instructional materials in effective teaching and learning of Home Economics. The study aimed at determining the extent of the use of instructional materials or reportage of the problems associated with the use of instructional materials and the government effort on the use of instructional materials. The project work consisted of five major chapters starting with the introduction which covered the introduction, statement of problems, objective of study, research question, hypotheses etc. Relevant literature consisting of meaning, classification, functions and availability of instructional materials. Analysis of data with the help on descriptive and inferential statistical tools showed that instructional materials are not required and not well taken care of. However, when these materials go bad, they are either dumped, discarded, or managed the way it is. The researchers therefore recommend that a more provision of adequate funds for acquisition and maintenance of instructional materials for teaching and learning of Home Economics and that government should pay more attention to the need for relevant instructional materials for effective teaching and learning of Home Economics.

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1   Background of the Study

The term Home Economics means home training or skill training. It takes one on welfare of himself and other families. It has been in existent hence mothers train their girls on how to cook and do other work at home artworks, also mothers train their daughter on how to keep houses clean, hair plaiting, decorating home with local paints, body painting, dressing during moon light and festivals also how to make up in other to marry comfortably, while fathers train their son on how to farm and make crafts like baskets and carving art works. As time goes on, it was introduced as domestic studying schools, later to domestic science. On arrival of the white men called missionaries to Nigeria. Though there were no formal schools, they introduced it to be called Home economics, no more domestic science. Since their arrival they introduced it as formal education. It becomes more than cooking and craft making. And extended into sewing, home management, clothing and textile, and within a short time Nigeria introduced it to primary schools, junior and senior secondary level and today into higher institutions.

 

Today, both sex study home economics because it offer job opportunity. Obiakor (2006) stated that through this philosophy, “home has become the most influential and sweetest of all human institution and organization in shipping the destiny of man. Anyakoha (2010) stated that Home Economics is a method of finding out the need of individual families and finding way of meeting the needs of individuals and families, improving the goods and services which families use, prepare people for family living and prepare people for employment. To enhance an effective teaching and learning of Home Economics, teachers should apply the desirable methodology in teaching Home Economics especially the use of instructional materials, just as Ezeugwu (2009) noted that no subject area which does not make use of instructional materials. These materials enhance learning concepts and events in less time than mere verbalization by involving all the senses. Obanya (1989) view instructional materials as a didactic materials – things which is supposed to make teaching and learning possible.

 

1.2 Statement of the Problem

A close look at schools around its today goes to prove a popular opinion or view that the majority of teachers do not use instructional materials effectively for teaching and learning of Home Economics. Tahir (2002) admitted that there is a general lack of instructional materials.

They must be relevance for the realization of the intensive of curriculum. Thus there is a short fall in the availability of instructional materials and teachers are unable to improvise with what is available in our environment in other to effectively derive home the lesson thought. Therefore, the inadequacies of sense organs are not compensated. Oforah (2009) state that the outcome of committee of STAN were pupils textbooks, teachers guides etc while Tauari (1998) states that the commission for now can only supply exercise books, chalks and such minor things. Instructional materials are grossly inadequate for effective teaching and learning. Furthermore, Tyler (1950) in his opinion explained that Home Economics Department should have a well organized instructional material corner, units or room where some of the following could be found. Verbal symbols (oral or written), recordings, visual symbols for stimulating interest, realia the real thing or authentic materials Dale (1959), Television, it made educational experiences which are beyond the reach of the classroom available to the students.
