COUNCIL
CHAPTER
ONE
INTRODUCTION
Background to the study
          Religion can be defined as the beliefs, attitudes, emotions
or behaviour constituting man’s relationship with the power and principle of
the universe especially with a deity or deities. It is also an object of
conscientious devotion or scrupulous care.     Christian
religious studies is an aspect of religion that was first regarded as a
sectional religion. It was a religion of the Jews, then called Judaism or Yahwehism
otherwise called Hebrew.
          Christian religious knowledge is being practiced in Nigeria
till today because it is a boulder of attitude and morality. Religion cannot be
separated from education that is the reason why religious education is included
in the national curriculum of education right from the primary to the
university education (Abioye and Adekunle, 2011).
          Despite the importance of Christian religious studies to
the individual and nation in imparting moral values and behavioural change, it
is worthy to note that performance of students in the subject is diminishing
and poor (Lawal, 2012)
          Due to the challenges encountered during teaching and
learning of chrtisian religious studies, students thereby run away from the
subject. This alarming rate of performance in Christian religious studies has
generated growing concern from various quarters: the parents, teachers, schools
and the government.
          One is also worried because of the relative importance of
the subject to education excellence and moral development. If care is not taken,
the country will be eroded of its moral values and cultures if trends continue
like that.
          Problem  for
effective teaching and learning of Christian religious studies s for interest
to the researchers in summary. The present study investigates the challenges for
effective teaching and learning of Christian religious studies in junior
secondary school (JSS) in Kwali area council
Statement Of The Problem
          Over the years, the Christian religious studies chief
examiners reports have revealed that apart from a relatively low proportion of junior
secondary school pupils who perm creditably in the subject, most of the pupils
do not well in it.
          This trend of low pupil performance in Christian religious studies
has for some times been observed among junior schools in the Kawali area
council. Although, concern has been expressed by parents, teachers and other
stakeholders about the abysmal performance of junior secondary school pupils in
Christian religious studies no discernible efforts have been made to reverse
the trend. Consequently there have been low students enrolments for Christian
religious studies elective courses in junior secondary schools in Kawali Area
council.
          The need for an intervention into the situation is urgent
in view of the importance of Christian religious studies in the socio economic
development of the nation in general and in the upper east region in particular.
For this reason, this study was designed to determine the factors which
combined effects have resulted in the prevalent poor performance of junior
secondary school students in Christian religious studies in the research area.
          The study will be structured to focus on pupils’ factors,
teachers’ factors, school specific factors and instructional actors that affect
the teaching and learning and pupil performance in Christian religious studies
in the research area.

Significance of the study
          For any research to be useful it must contribute to the
volume of existing knowledge of the field under investigation. In view of this,
it is my conclusion that information obtained from this study will help address
some of the problem that confront the effective teaching and learning of
Christian religious studies at the JSS level of education. It is to suggest
remedies that will make students learning of CRS interesting and enjoyable.
          Teachers on the other hand will identify the problems with
their methods of instruction and effects in the learning behaviour of their
students
          It is also to provide information to the ministry of
education, the government and other education stakeholders to embark on
intervention to promote the teaching and learning of Christian religious
studies at the junior secondary school level.
          The researcher hopes to help the regional and district coordinators
at the education office in Kawali area council to upgrade their teaching and
learning materials and evolve more time, more innovative strategies for the
in-service training programme for Christian religious studies teachers.
          Additionally, the finding will augment the pool of data
required by other educational researchers in their body to design interventions
to solve educational problems in the teaching and learning of Christian
religious Studies.
          In a nutshell, the findings and suggestions that will emerge
from this study will aid in inexperienced as well as the reasoned Christian
religious studies teacher to meaningfully teach Christian religious studies.
