CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1   Background to the Study

The quality of teaching depends on love, dedication and devotion of the teacher towards the subject. The quality of any teaching program cannot rise above the quality and character of its teacher. It is the teacher who is responsible for influencing a students’ learning of the subject.

Character can be positive (value) or negative (prejudice) according to Baird (2000). It is the framework of social psychology as a subjective or mental preparation of action. It defined outward and visible posture and human beliefs. The character of a teacher will be determined by what that teacher will see, hear, think and work or do.

They are rooted in experience and do not become automatic routine conduct. It means that teacher prevailing tendency to respond favourably or unfavourably to an object (person or group of people, institutions or events).

Moreover, effective study of the teachers’ characters towards learning cannot be overemphasized in order to combat with the present fallen stand of education in the country, oftenly, the failure of students in economics over the years has only been attributed to the bad character of teachers towards the subject.

Therefore this study was designed to investigate the influence of teachers’ characteristics and learning effectiveness in Economics among Secondary School students in Oruk Anam Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.
