Abstract

The study assessed the effect of English and Yoruba interpreted biology picture labels as an advance organiser on the achievement of senior secondary school biology students in Ile-Ife. It also investigated the effect of the labels on students’ attitude toward biology. The study adopted the non-equivalent pre-test-post-test control group research design. The population for the study consisted of senior secondary school students in Ife-East Local Government Area of Osun state. The study sample comprised 128 senior secondary school II biology students in three intact classes selected using simple random sampling technique. The three classes were randomly assigned to two experimental and one control group, namely: Picture labels in English advance organiser group, picture labels interpreted into Yoruba advance organiser group and the conventional teaching method group. Two research instruments were used for the study, namely: Students’ achievement test in biology and students’ attitudinal questionnaire. Data were analysed using analysis of covariance. The results of the study revealed that there was a significant effect in the achievement of students in the experimental and control groups. There was also a significant effect in the attitude of students in experimental and control groups, with Yoruba interpreted picture labels having a better effect on the learning outcomes of biology students than picture labels in English and the conventional teaching method. The study concluded that picture labels interpreted into Yoruba as advance organiser was a better strategy in improving students’ learning outcomes in biology.
