Demessew Alemu Woldetsadik, Mutendwahothe Walter Lumadi

Abstract


High academic achievers engage themselves in academic activities, while in school or at home, that can lead to better academic results. The wider academic experiences they acquire during their schooling time can be imitated by the other students of a school. An organized effort exerted by school leaders, teachers and parents can create a better situation for academically weak students to make use of these experiences. A qualitative phenomenological design was employed in this study to explore the lived academic experiences of the interviewees. The research approach provided participants with an opportunity to describe their academic experiences as they understand it.
