Masuala Yanayoathiri Ufunzaji Na Ujifunzaji Wa Somo La Ufahamu Katika Shule Za Upili Katika Kaunti Ya Kisumu Nchini Kenya

ABSTRACT

Comprehension is one of the several compulsory sections in Kiswahili subject syllabus. For a

student to perform well in Kiswahili exams, he or she has to do well in this section.

Unfortunately, this is one of the most poorly performed section in Kiswahili. This study

therefore sought to investigate the factors that affect the teaching and learning of Kiswahili

reading comprehension in Secondary schools in Kisumu West sub county in Kenya. The

objectives of this study were: To investigate the teaching strategies that the Kiswahili

comprehension teachers use to teach Kiswahili reading comprehension; To assess the availability

and use of learning and teaching aids by teachers in teaching Kiswahili reading

comprehension;To find out whether Kiswahili teachers adequately prepared before going to

teach Kiswahili reading comprehension lessons and, To investigate about teachers and

learners‟opinions towards the teaching and learning of Kiswahili reading comprehension.This

study was guided by the behaviourism theory by Hull (1943) which was reinforced by Skinner

(1957), (Deodutus 2015) This theory states that learning reflects the development of an S-R

(stimulus-response) association. The research used descriptive survey design. The target

population included all form three teachers of Kiswahili reading comprehension together with

their Kiswahili students. Stratified sampling was used to select a representative sample of

schools while simple random sampling was used to select teachers of Kiswahili and students.The

research was carried out in 11 secondary schools, among 18 form three teachers of Kiswahili and

180 students which represented 30% of the total population. Data was analyzed using descriptive

statistics. Data was presented using, tables, graphs and charts. Discussion of the findings of the

research was guided by research questions. The findings of the data analysis showed that there

were challenges in the teaching and learning of Kiswahili reading comprehension. The findings

indicated that poor preparation by teachers in their teaching content, inappropriate teaching

methodologies used by Kiwahili teachers, neglect of the use of relevant teaching materials and

teaching aids and negative attitudes by teachers and students towards Kiswahili reading

comprehension are the factors affecting the teaching and learning of comprehension. Based on

the finding, it is recommended that the Kenya Institute of Curricullum Development should

organize seminars and workshops for teachers of Kiswahili on the relevant topics and methods of

teaching Kiswahili comprehension. The importance of this research is that, the findings are

useful in teaching and learning of Kiswahili comprehension in Secondary schools not only in

Kisumu West Sub-County, but also in other pats of Kenya and other places where Kiswahili

comprehension is taught. The teachers will be able to understand the best instructional strategies

for teaching reading comprehension. The learners will also get the required skills to read and

answer comprehension questions correctly.
