|Abstract: ||The purpose of this study was to assess the status of
Pop/FLE in the curriculum of Teachers Education in Ethiopia and
to findout its effect upon the knowledge, attitude and practice
of the students.
To do this, two Regional Colleges of Teachers Education
namely; Awassa and Gonder were randomly chosen. From the total
of 460 students population in the two colleges 154 sample
students were randomly selected. Sixteen department heads and
5 curriculum designers were interviewed. A questionnaire
consisting of 20 items multiple choice test, 20 items attitude
inventory, 12 items rating scale and one open ended question
was administered for the sample students twice as a pre-and
post-test to see the effect of the course.The course catalogues
and course contents were considered as sources of supplementary
data. Then, percentage mean, multiple comparison of the
mean, analysis of variance (ANOVA), Pearson correlation
coefficient and t-test were used to analyse the data.
The study revealed that the students seem to have Pop/FLE
knowledge and positive attitude and practicing it at the time
of their enrolment to college. However, variation in their KAP
level was found as a result of differences in College, sex,
religion, residential background and previous exposure to
Pop/FL information. Besides positive relationship was found
between their knowledge level and attitude, and their knowledge
and practice. It was found that, there are significant
proportions of Pop/FL related objectives and contents in each
department though they lack depth and special concern.
