HE TEACHERS‘ PARTICIPATION IN TEACHING AN OPTIONAL LITERATURE COMPONENT AS AN INDICATOR OF MEASURING 322 PROGRAMME SUCCESS

Mahmoud Abdelrazig Mahmoud Barakat

Abstract


This paper aims to investigate the teachers‘ participation in a newly- proposed literature programme in Sudanese secondary schools. It is hypothesized that the greater the number of participating teachers in teaching the new literature component, the greater the possibility that the programme is introduced in a supportive environment where the educational goals are clearly stated and the necessary resources available. 3 semi-structured interviews were conducted with the senior supervisors of English in the educational administrations in three localities in Khartoum State: Karari, Omdurman and Bahri. Data about the teachers and resources was collected to test the hypothesis. The study reveals that there is diversity in the types of the adopted goals of the programme which means that each locality has articulated their own list which is found to be incompatible with the resources at hand. It is recommended that in order for the new programme to succeed, it is of paramount importance to work out a guiding list of its major goals which should be formulated in light of what the educational environment can avail.
