”Write a letter to the Minister of Education,explaining two negative effects of setting examination questions on the Chalkboard”
The teacher’s motive might be to send a message to the stakeholders of Education for quick response.
On the other side,the question could also be used to get an understading of the child’s view on the negative effects of writting questions on the board for them to answer.
These same pupils shall be expectd to wrie questions printed by the West African Examinations Council in the Basic Education Certifcate Examination.
Prof. Yankah Thinks Otherwise
The Deputy Minister of Education in Charge of Tertiary Education, Prof Yankah said the move was taken to ensure teachers deliver quality learning outcomes in schools.
This comment many of the teachers thought otherwise,saying writing examination questions on the board can not be used to ensure teachers deliver quality learning outcomes.
The teachers said writing questions on the board can not be used to even check the quality of their handwrittings.
