Teachers in classrooms need to be provided with adequate skills to deliver their lessons effectively. The manner in which lessons are delivered will   influence students’ overall performance in their subject. Effective use of teaching resources and different approaches will help enhance the quality of lessons. Furthermore, well delivered lessons will also be reflected in students’ test performance.
