Abstract

The study explored the oral language development pedagogical knowledge base of Basic School
teachers in Akuapem North Municipality. Three hundred and ten (264) teachers who taught English
Language at the Basic School level were involved in the study. Data were collected through
questionnaires and interviews. The study found that despite teachers’ rich knowledge about
classroom experiences that promote oral language development, oral language among primary
school pupils remained poor. Teachers were conversant with classroom experiences that promote
oral language development. They knew about differentiated teaching, stimulating classrooms,
effective classroom management styles, formative assessment, and positive experiences that nurture
oral language development.
