Authors: Abbem, Emmanuel
Issue Date: 27-Oct-2016
Abstract: The use of drawings as a form of instructional medium is a helpful means in the teaching and learning of young students. Religious and Moral Education is one of the subjects studied in the Ghanaian School curricular. Moral values are taught at the three stages of the Junior High school level of education. The aim is to inculcate good moral values into the students to make them responsible people in the society. It has been recommended that pictorial illustrations be used as teaching aids in the teaching of the moral values but these materials are non-existent in the Junior High Schools. The lecture method of teaching is predominantly used to teach the moral values like love, peace, kindness, forgiveness, humility and patriotism. This study was carried out to identify the moral values specified in the RME syllabus, find out the kinds of illustrations that are being used to teach the moral values in Ayeduase R/C School, in Kumasi, and St. Louis Jubilee Junior High School, in Kumasi. Then appropriate sample illustrations were designed and developed to help in teaching the moral values that will excite students’ interest and promote fuller participation of students in lessons. The study employed the descriptive method of quality research to describe the situation of the teaching of moral values in the schools. The research tools of observation, interview and questionnaire were used in this inquiry. The results indicated that teachers in the sampled schools taught the moral values verbally without the use of drawings to illustrate them. People were commissioned to produce sampled illustrations as an intervention to teach moral values. The sampled illustrations were tested in the sampled schools, and the results proved that students’ participation was boosted when drawings are used in teaching the moral values. Teachers also spoke less during lesson delivery. The use of drawings in the teaching of moral values therefore engender effective and learning.
