The purpose of this study was to investigate the status of the implementation active learning approach in some selected governmental and private upper primary schools in Addis Ababa. Data were generated using a questionnaire that was dispatched to a purposively selected 63 teachers and 124 students, an interview conducted with a purposively selected 8 school principals, classroozns Observations and review ofcurricular materials, Hi/ employing a descriptive survey research method, the study found out that although the iniplementation of active learning approach is eniphasized in the policy, currently lecture methods, in which teachers' talks dominate in most classrotmis. The ohstacles found were teachers' lack of skills, inappropriate curricular materials, lack of schoolfacilities to implement active learning and to some extent students and teachers' lack ofpositive attitude towards active learning. The result seems to suggest that the policy has set cxpectations on schools to implement active learning approach that demands more than what they actually can <1'O at the moment. Therefore, provision of more enabling conditions such as instructional resources, suitable eurricular materials and eontinuous and relevant in«service and pre~service trainings for upper primary school teachers is highly essential to improve the implementalion ofactive learning.
