ABSTRACT

            This essay studies the importance of Islamic religious studies training of secondary school students in teaching and learning. The significance was to expose the extent of the contributions of training Islamic religious studies to the development of teaching and learning secondary school students. The study was an empirical research and Islamic studies teachers and students in Ijebu Igbo was the target population. Sample of 100 respondents comprising of the Islamic studies teachers and students were randomly drawn from Ijebu Igbo. One instrument was used for the present study. It was a questionnaire drawn for the Islamic studies teachers and students in Ijebu Igbo to find out their perceptions of the contributions of training Islamic religious studies to the development of teaching and learning secondary school students. Of the one hundred questionnaire distributed, all the copies were received and this represents 100% of the total copies distributed. As regards the some Islamic religious studies teacher, face to face interviews were conducted in their respective schools. Data collected were quantitatively analysed.


Results revealed that all the respondents were of the opinion that the teaching and learning of Islamic Studies in secondary school gives much emphasis aspects of inculcating moral values. This is not surprising and the reason is not far-fetched. The primary goal of Islam is to teach every Muslim the knowledge of Islamic studies as the requisite for proper understanding of the religion and moral values. However, No nation can develop when moral decadence overthrows good virtues, because morality is a vehicle to success. Therefore, Islamic studies  in  its  character  therefore  more  relevant  in  passing  good  moral instructions from generations to generation. Moreover it  is  evident  that  the  foundation of  education  in  Islam  is guided by  the principles  of  Quran  and Hadith.


The study recommends that teachers that lack competency in the Islamic religious studies should be encouraged and motivated to learn the Islamic religious studies. This will make them effectively consult the reference materials recommended in the curriculum. Teachers should realize that effective teaching can result in the attainment of both goals of students achieving good examination grades and positive behavioural change. Effective use of teaching aids is a good starting point.
