Abstract: The central intention of this research was to assess some of the factors attributing to the mismatch between the intended (learner-centered) and the actually used (lecture) teaching methods in the first cycle primary schools of Oromia in general and that of West Shewa Zone in particular. To attain this objective, a descriptive survey research method was employed. The sample consisted of 237 teachers who were drawn from 25 first cycle primary schools. Purposive sampling technique was used to select the target districts and primary schools while stratified and simple random sampling techniques were employed to select the sample teachers. To gather the necessary data, questionnaire, interviews, focus group discussions, document analysis, and observations were the instruments employed. In analyzing the data percentage, mean and chi-square were used. Results of the study suggest that the factors that enforce first cycle primary school teachers of West Shewa Zone use the lecture method in most cases are lack of training, large class size, inadequacy of educational facilities, inappropriateness of curricular materials developed for the level, and high teaching loads. Thus, based on the findings of the study, recommendations are forwarded to mitigate the aforementioned problems in the Zone under study.
