Factors Affecting Students Performance In Luganda Language In Secondary Schools

ABSTRACT

The study was conducted to find out factors affecting students academic performance in

Luganda Language and was guided by the following objectives finding out the influence

of socio-econOmic status, teaching methods and instructional materials on students

performance in Luganda Language in secondary school in Busujju Sub Country Mityana

District.

Across sectional survey research design was applied and a qualitative research

approach used. A systematic random sampling technique was applied to select four

secondary schools from which a sample size of 100 respondents both males and

females were purposively selected. Data was analyzed using descriptive statistic where

frequency table and percentage were applied.

In research findings indicated that socio-econOmic status most especially elements of

family size, parents occupation, feeding at home, financial support, teaching method

and instructional materials were found to have contributed concluded that children’s

experiences at home are critical to language growth and learning, application of

different teaching methods is the only remedy to the poor performance in Luganda

Language and insufficient reading materials deters students’ communication

competence there by deterring there general performance in Luganda Language. As a

research I recommended that teachers need to increase their understanding of the

linguistic features of language and that specialized context knowledge, is essential for

teaching reading just as it is in the maths and science. Future research should

investigate the ways in which multiple aspects of the have learning environment jointly

contribute to development outcomes in children’s language performance and also the

ministry of Education and Sports together with school administrators need to ensure

that school budgets annually reflect the purchasing of up to date and variety of a study

materials. Schools should not only look at textbooks as the only materials necessary for language performance.
