Authors : Adeosun Olufemi Victor

Abstract: This study focused on the relative efficacy of realia and a combination of pictures and charts in the teaching of comprehension in Nigerian Junior Secondary Schools. The study employed an experimental design with 2 experimental groups and one control group. The sample consisted of 78 Junior Secondary School Students randomly selected into three groups of 26 students each Realia and a combination of pictures and charts were used to teach the 2 experimental groups, respectively while the control group was taught with the traditional lecture method. The pre-test and post-test considered valid were also administered to the students. The results were computer-analysed. Three hypotheses were generated and tested. Two of them were accepted while one was rejected. The results show that realia are more effective than a combination of pictures and charts in the teaching of comprehension in Junior Secondary Schools, although, none of them has been found to be more effective than the traditional lecture method. Based on the findings, some recommendations were made.
