THE CHALLENGES IN THE PREPARATION OF PRESERVICE MUSIC AND DANCE TEACHERS AT GBEWAA COLLEGE OF EDUCATION IN PUSIGA DISTRICT

ABSTRACT 

 

The quality of teaching occurring in schools can be directly attributed to the preservice teacher preparation that teachers receive. The aim of the study is to find out challenges in the preparation of preservice music and dance teachers at Gbewaa College of Education. Also this study is to find out the kind of  instructional materials and methods of instruction employed in the teaching and learning of music and dance. The approach of the music and dance teachers to music and dance teaching and learning determines the successful realization of the curriculum. A case study as a method was employed for the study. The technique adopted for the selection was  purposive sampling. The research was based on data collected from  sixty-five (65) elective music and dance respondents out of a total of 222 students. The main instrument used for the study was Observation, Interview and Questionnaire. The study revealed the following: lack of competence and confidence, inadequate teaching and learning materials, apathy on the part of students, teachers and parents, inadequate time for music and dance lesson, lack of priority for music and the disparity of the Curriculum content of the College of Education Institutions and that of the Basic Schools. The results recommend that Music and Dance should be separated from the other Creative Arts and made examinable  subject at the basic level and the course content  should have a bearing on the Primary and Junior High School syllabus.
