Lazarus Ndiku Makewa, Elizabeth Role, Baraka Ngussa


This paper sought to establish if there was a significant difference among secondary school administrators, teachers of English and students in Adventist Secondary Schools in Tanzania in their perceptions on the usefulness of media resources in English teaching and learning. The present study employed descriptive, comparative and correlational research designs. The study used questionnaires to collect the information from teachers of English, students and school administrators regarding the usefulness of media resources in English instruction among Adventist Secondary Schools in Shinyanga, Mwanza, Mara, Arusha and Kilimanjaro regions. Three hundred and eighty (380) respondents participated. The findings show that all the three groups agreed that media resources are useful in English instruction and that both the male and female students agreed that media resources are useful in English instruction. It is therefore highly essential for secondary schools to provide adequate and relevant materials for the teaching and learning, not only of English, but for all other subjects in the secondary school curriculum. Future studies could look at perceptions of different stakeholders on improvisation of teaching and learning resources.
