LAP Lambert Academic Publishing Despite the fact that oral literature has been taught as an academic discipline in the university since the late 1960s, and early 1980s in secondary schools, the teaching of oral literature in secondary schools in Kenya is beset with many problems. The general feeling is that the teaching is rather haphazard. The integration of English language and literature has further compounded the problem making some teachers de-emphasize oral literature. Hence, the purpose of this book is to analyse the effectiveness of teaching and learning of oral literature. The book seeks to determine to what extent the Integrated English syllabus has improved the teaching of oral literature, teacher qualification and competence, availability of teaching learning resources, appropriateness of the teaching learning resources as well as the teacher’s attitude towards oral literature as well as ways of enhancing the teaching and learning of oral literature.
