Abstract


This paper investigates students’ perception of teachers’ factors (teachers’ attitude, method of teaching and classroom management) in the teaching and learning of English Language in secondary schools in Nigeria. The study is a descriptive research design of the survey method. Two hundred (200) students were randomly selected from 5 secondary schools for the study while only 192 representing 96% who responded correctly to the instrument were used for the study. Three research questions and three hypotheses were generated. A self- constructed questionnaire titled “Students Perception of Teachers Attitude, Method of Teaching and Classroom Management Scale” (SPTAMTCMS) was used to collect data for the study. Frequency counts, percentages and chi-square statistics were used to analyse the data collected. All hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. The findings revealed that there was a significant relationship between teachers’ attitude, method of teaching and classroom management to the teaching and learning of English Language as perceived by students. This implies that expected performance of students in English Language is based on the teachers’ attitude, method of teaching the subject and classroom management. Based on the above-findings, recommendations were made.
