BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Teaching practice is the process whereby student teachers are sent out to various schools in order to test their ability in classroom teaching and management in learning situation. It is a very important scheme which has been in existence since the introduction of education or training college (TTC) national certificate in education (NCE) and Bachelor in education (BED)
The importance of teaching practice in teaching education programme is to test the students on what they have been taught in the classrooms as theories and how they can be able to put it into practice before they can been allowed to go into the world as a trained teacher.
From the statistics collected from the result generally the researcher has seen that student’s teachers encounter different problems during teaching practice. This research work will therefore attempt to discuss and analyze their teaching practice and will finally suggest ways by which the teaching practice exercise can be improved.
According to UDUEHI (2009) teaching practice is required from any student in the teachers college. It is also an experience of guild teaching in which the student teachers assumes increasing responsibility for directing the learning of a group of pupils over a specific period of time. Student encounter problems during teaching practice because students fail to go to orientation which is organized for them before they can go for teaching practice but most of the student teachers don’t attend the orientation. Problems that they will encounter during the teaching practice will be new to them and they cannot handle it which makes their teaching not effective.
The problems students encounter during teaching practice are lack of instructional material inadequate classroom management, lack of chairs in the classroom, over crowded classroom, problem of writing lesson note, assuage of teaching practice student teachers, lack of transportation, lack of accommodation.
