Abstract


This study set out to identify the availability and extent of the use of instructional materials in the teaching and learning of Igbo language in Obollo-Afor Educational Zone. The work adopted a survey design and two research questions guided the study. Instrument for data collection was a researcher made questionnaire with 40 items. The data obtained were analyzed using percentage, mean and standard deviation. The results indicated that most of the instructional resources were not available in the schools, while the few available ones were utilized to low and very low extent. Based on the findings, it was recommended among others that government should provide resources for Igbo language instruction and that seminars and workshops should be organized for the teachers on the importance of using instructional materials in delivering their lessons.
