Abstract

The aim of the study was to assess the perceptions of Pupils and Teachers on the use of instructional materials and resources in the teaching of Religious and Moral Education (RME) in some selected Junior High Schools (JHS) in the Tano South Municipality. A sample size of 150 Pupils and 20 Teachers of RME were used for the study. Questionnaires were the main data collection instruments used for the research. The data collected were analyzed using descriptive statistics including mean, standard deviation and simple percentages. From the study, it was realised that most Religious and Moral Education teachers Very often used visual Instructional materials and resources in their lessons. Also, it was noticed that some instructional resources needed for the teaching of Religious and Moral Education were lacking in most of the schools. Despite the shortage in supply of Instructional materials and resources, teachers made judicious use of the limited ones. The pupils also agreed that their understanding of concepts in RME, is closely tied to the use of appropriate instructional materials and resources in the teaching and learning process It is therefore recommended that the Ministry of Education through the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Education Offices (MMDEOs) should try and provide the requisite Instructional materials and resources for effective teaching and learning of Religious and Moral Education in the schools. Also, in-service training on the preparation and effective use of instructional materials and resources should be organised regularly for teachers of RME.
