A teacher choice of teaching methods should not only be based on what fits/suits him or her but also putting into consideration the subject area, schools mission statement, class demography etc. academic performance on the other hand according to the Encyclopedia Britanica (2009) academic performance as an act or a process of display in the level of understanding a knowledge of what has been learnt as a student especially while studying in schools. Irrespective of the schools physical beauty or magnificence, it is of great benefit to know to know that the student’s academic performance depends also on the teaching methods adopted by the class teacher.

        The choice of teaching methods according to Wikipedia may also depend largely on the information that the teacher or instructor intends to pass across to the members/students in his/her class, the skill that is to be taught, and it may also be influenced by the attitude and level of enthusiasm of the class/students. In the last decade, scholars has attempted to see hour and why there has been a downward growth in the level of performance of secondary school age with the high rate of failure displayed by results of examinations conducted by external examinational bodies e.g Jamb, WAEC, NECO does it mean that the methods of instruction are obsolete and needs revisions, or is the assertion true that Nigerian students are drill? Or is it because these students have no passion for education/learning? Or is a likely, that the system of education in Nigeria generally does not favour this generation of scholars. In this study an indepth analysis will be done to analyze this menace that is eating up the educational system.
