Abstract:

“Schools practice” is a learning process through which teacher trainees are exposed to school environment during their internship. The purpose of this study is to identify the nature of the schoo.ls’ learning environments prevailing in Ugandan secondary schools and how they influence the performance of teacher trainees. The objectives are to both identify the physical infrastructure and teaching materials in schools, and to examine the relationships between, teacher trainees, and the teachers, administrators, supervisors and students they encounter. A qualitative approach was used to collect data, namely interviews and focus group discussions. The results reveal; (1) The poor infrastructure and sanitary conditions in some schools both government and private. The teaching materials which include textbooks, science equipment, audio visual teaching aids and other essential teaching material are inadequate in a number of schools. (2) The teacher trainees are not effectively supervised. (3) The quality of students in some schools is extremely good while in others wanting. (4) The time allocated to the internship is among other factors contributing to the performance of Teacher trainees.
