Abstract


The study investigated the problems faced by Yoruba language pre-service teachers during teaching practice. Survey research design was adopted for the study. A sample of fifty-two (52) Yoruba language student-teachers in selected junior secondary schools in Oyo Federal Constituency, Oyo was chosen through simple random sampling technique. The result revealed some problems faced by the students to include; poor accommodation, lack of provision for field trip or excursion for student-teachers, non-involvement of student-teachers in some school activities among others when mean value of 2.5 was used as the threshold. Also, mean score of problems during encountered by pre-service Yoruba language teachers during teaching practice in special schools (Mean = 38.72; SD = 2.98) is higher than that of pre-service Yoruba language teachers in regular schools (Mean = 25.21; SD = 2.41) and the mean score of problems being encountered by pre-service Yoruba language teachers during teaching practice in special schools (Mean =38.72; SD = 2.98) is higher than that of pre-service Yoruba language teachers in regular schools (Mean = 25.21; SD = 2.41). Therefore, it was recommended that stipends should be provided for the student-teachers and stiff penalties should be applied to any student-teacher who failed to attend teaching practice orientation
