|Abstract: ||This study investigated the leaner-centered approach's degree of
application in present schools conditions comparing with the desired effective
application. To accomplish the objectives of the study thirteen first cycle
primary schools from Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples' Region
ISNNPRI , Gedeo Zone were selected as a sample. A questionnaire, mostly,
consisted of close-ended items with 'disagree', 'yes' or 'no', 'high', 'average'
and 'low', and some multiple choice statements.
It was distributed to 145 head teachers and teachers of thirteen sample
schools. Total collections of completed and usable questionnaires were 145 in
number (100%). Responses were tallied in order to convert frequencies into
percentages to answer the basic questions raised in the Chapter One of this
The major findings were (i) on administrational areas present practices
were found to be satisfactory whereas instructional practices were unsatisfactory.
(ii) urban and rural schools are equally facing critical problems of large classes,
(iii) the objective reality of large classes inhibit teachers from applying learner centered
approach in multi grades teaching system (teaching in different grades
and sections). Thus present teaching-learning process under such situations
found to be unsatisfactory, and (iv) respondents were found to be positive
towards self-contained classroom teaching as a remedial suggestion provided for
effective application of leaner-centered approach in self-contained large classes.|
