AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE AT THE PRIMARY SCHOOL LEVEL: IMPLICATIONS ON THE UBE IN BENUE STATE

 

 

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

When we look around we cannot but admire the work of agricultural science as the clothes we put on, the house we lives in, the pen use in writhing, the cooker we watch, the steer we play, the pipe borne water, the motor car we drive, the medicine we drink, the are propane that flies, the book we read, the chalk we write with, the industries we work in, the electricity we use e.t.c

According to Joseph (1966) agricultural science is a perception of the mind where by an infinitive idea develops into a form that eventually beats man’s imagination and ingenuity

Nigeria as a developing nation is not exempted from the for industrialization despite the country’s buoyancy in mineral resources, she is still learning from countries like united kingdom and united state of America the society is productively hand capped by low level of technology, yet Nigeria has a high taste for luxuries, hence cannot but learn from developed countries for commodes this so because she lack scientific inventions this has gone a long way to hamper the countries economic growth over the years in search of economical and technological satisfaction, Nigeria now encourages the study of agricultural science anf technology in schools

The national policy on education is now geared towards reflecting the nation need agricultural science is important in our modern industries, it is fundamental to boldly and mental health it has revolutionaries  our look on the universe, it has freed us from haunting fears and has influence our fundamental philosophies according to Abubakar (1972) “the pursuit of agricultural science is imperative for any nation that want to maintain its independence and sovereignty, ensure growing prosperity and hold up its ahead among civilized nations” agricultural science has come to stay in this country but the way and manner it is taught has a lot to do in teaching any particular subjects a number of strategies or methodology are often employed according to Thompson (1962) “teaching are those techniques used by the teacher as the most efficient means of achieving the teaching goals”

In the Nigeria national policy on education (1981) it stated that school education should “equip pupils to live attentively in our modern age of agricultural science and technology” in accordance with this aim of education, Boge (1979) has his to say, “in an era that is most accurately described by its scientific and technological process, one major educational problem is preparing the young people to cope with the intellectual and cultural environment characterized by rapid changes” in order for pupils to understand this rapidly, scientific and technological society, it is assumed that these young people should have some basic understanding for the agricultural science

Experimental agricultural science is one of the most recently included subject content of the curriculum agricultural science it inclusion, agricultural science has continued to occupy its separate place and some time, it is of ten neglected in some schools even where the various branches of agricultural science are taught they are done without regard for the basic requirement needed in spite of the effort made during the present decade by the federal and state government of Nigeria to give agricultural science subject their role in education note much has been achieved in some selected schools in of Benue state the effect of the deficiency in teaching agricultural science in schools are particularly evident in developing countries such as Nigeria

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

  • To which extent has the number of pupils per class in Nigeria which is too unwieldy affect the effective teaching of agricultural science
  • In what way does in adequate use of specimens material and diagrams makes ineffective the teaching of agricultural science
  • Could lack of improvised teaching and by teacher cause ineffective teaching which lead to the pupils poor performance in agricultural science
  • Can bad attitude of teachers towards work affect the effective teaching of agricultural science
  • Could lack of practical work causes ineffective teaching of agricultural science

RESEARCH QUESTION

  • How does lack of laboratories and lack of instructional material affect the effective teaching of agricultural science?
  • How does pupil’s attitude towards the subject (agricultural science) affect their performance in the teaching of agricultural science?
  • Does teacher’s qualification also affect pupils performance in effective teaching of agricultural science/
  • How teacher dose’s teaching methods in agricultural science affects pupil’s performance ineffective teaching of agricultural science?

 HYPOTHESIS

The ineffective teaching of agricultural science schools is brought by several factors the researcher has it in mind that the factors listed below could be responsible for it

  • Lack of laborites and lack of instructional materials
  • Pupils attitude towards the subject (agricultural science) affects their performance
  • Teacher’s qualification also affect the pupils performance in agricultural science
  • Teacher’s teaching method in agricultural science affect pupils performance
  • With answers to the above, the researcher has it in mind that there is going to be a total change in the teaching of agricultural science

PURPOSE OF STUDY

The purpose of this study is to find out the problem militating against the teaching of agricultural science the schools

SIGNIFICANCE OF STUDY

The teaching of agricultural science has not been as effective as it output to be is easily of pupils in schools it is therefore necessary to diagnose the various factors responsible for this unheeding state of affairs and proper means by which the anomalies could be arrested

The importance of agricultural science in the life of man need to be over emphasized therefore if the subject is note effectively taught, the rudiment that are necessary for development of the basic concept of agricultural science would be lacking at the primary schools level and this could permeate the other state of the nation’s educational level it is believed that the importance of agricultural science is well under stood and all the factors responsible for it’s unhealthy development are quickly nipped on the bud it would be possible to build a agricultural science culture oriented society which will augur well for the healthy development of the nation

SCOPE AND DELIMITION OF STUDY

The study will be restricted to in Benin City Benue state a large number of primary school is located there hence will serve as the centre of the study this will enable one to know the factor militating against effective teaching of agricultural science

Selected primary schools in are to be used for the study

The selected schools are:

  • Ugbowo primaryu school
  • Ediaken primary school
  • Olua primary school
  • Use primary school

LIMITATION OF STUDY

To carry out a project such as this there are bound to be procedural and methodological flew inherent in the item developed human biases are likely to aggravate the internal weakness that are likely to exist however, conscious effort will be made to evolve method that will control for such extraneous influences in order to ensure the validity and reliability of the study

It is also expected that distance, times, finance and lack of human co-operation can pose serious threats to the successful execution of this project to this end it is hoped that every effort will be made to minimize, if not totally eliminating such threats and steps taken be highlighted to serve as a guide to those who may wish to replicate the project

DEFINITION OF TERMS

In the course of study, it is important to know what the following terms stand for technology may be defined as the use of organized knowledge to solve practical problems

Agricultural science laboratory is a place equipped for experimental studies in agricultural science
