Should Teachers Continue to Write Lesson Note?

Recent Articles

Right after the introduction of the ONE TEACHER ONE LAPTOP POLICY for Pre-Tertiary School Teachers, both Dr. Bawumia, the Vice President of Ghana and Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum made an open declaration that the writing of lesson for basic education teachers is over.

For instance, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia said that Teachers will no longer write lesson notes because the Lesson Notes Software will be incorporated into the system of the TM1 LAPTOPS.

In addition, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum disclosed that writing of Lesson Notes is a thing of the past. He said this in an interview with Wontumi TV. He again said that Teachers will no longer write lesson notes due to the introduction of laptops for teachers.

In the perspective, when speaking on the Topic: (STEM) “Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics” on the Kumasi based Radio, he said that the introduction of Professional Development has replaced the writing of Lesson Notes.

He went ahead by saying, that the writing of Lesson Notes is no longer compulsory or forceful on teachers because teachers keep on copying the previous (written years ago) contents into their new lesson note books without any additions.

Now, there’s a heated argument and Teachers are divided in two sides where one side believes lesson note should not be handwritten, on the contrary, the other side also believe that should be written by teachers. In this case, district education offices including headmasters and School Improvement Support Officers (SISO) otherwise known as circuit supervisors are on one side whereas classroom and subject teachers belong to the other side.

So, based on these two statements made by the Education Minister and the Vice President on the issue, teachers are confused whether they should go ahead and write lesson or not.
