ABSTRACT

The study investigated the effect of Scaffolding and Think-Pair-Share teaching strategies on academic achievement and locus of control in English language comprehension of senior secondary students in South East Nigeria. Eight specific objectives were developed to guide the study. Eight research questions were answered for the study while eight null hypotheses were formulated and tested at 0.05 level of significance to guide the study. The study adopted a quasi-experimental pre-test, post-test control group design. The study was carried out in Abia state. The population of the study was 4,649 senior secondary two students in 2020/2021 academic session in Abia state. Sample for the study consisted of 48 senior secondary two students drawn from three co-educational schools in Ohafia education zone. Instruments used for data collection for the study were English Language Achievement Test (ELAT) which was validated by five experts and Locus of Control Scale (LOCS) which was adopted from Ekennia (2017).The reliability coefficient of ELAT was established using Kuder-Richardson (K-R20) formula and a coefficient of 0.81 was obtained. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions while Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used to test the null hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The result revealed that students taught English language comprehension using Scaffolding and Think-Pair-Share teaching strategies respectively recorded higher mean achievement scores than their counterparts taught with Lecture method. The study also found that Scaffolding and Think-Pair-Share strategies have no significant effect on male and female students’ academic achievement in English language. It was recommended among others that English language teachers should be given adequate training by the government on the effective use of innovative teaching strategies such as Scaffolding and Think-Pair-Share. Teachers should be encouraged to incorporate these innovative teaching strategies in classroom instructions.
