Abstract ―​

This study examined the effects of wall charts on junior secondary students’ performance in the use of English adjectives in Bwari Metropolis. The researcher employed a quasi-experimental design. Intact classes were used for the study. The population of the study was three thousand, one hundred and seventeen students drawn from five junior secondary schools in Bwari Metropolis. The samples for the study were drawn from two secondary schools in Bwari Metropolis. These schools were selected through simple random sampling without replacement. The sample was made up of one hundred and sixty-four junior secondary two (JSS 2) students. A self-designed instrument, English Adjective Performance Test (EAPT) was used for data collection. The data were analysed using an independent sample t-test, conducted at 0.05 levels of significance. The result showed that there are statistically significant differences in the mean scores of the students of the experimental group who were taught English adjectives with the use of wall charts and the control group who learnt English adjectives without the use of wall charts. It was also observed that gender has no effect on the mean performance scores of students who learnt English adjectives with the use of wall charts. On average, the male and female students performed equally. Based on the findings, it was recommended that the government should assist the school management to organise in-service training for the teachers to enrich their knowledge on the importance and the handling of instructional materials, the school management should endeavour to make provision for wall charts to all teachers, especially to the language teachers among others.
