This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2007 Conference, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. This study was designed to investigate the perception of teachers towards teaching large classes as prevalent in Nigerian schools today due to the present social demand for education. The samples used for the study were 300 teachers randomly selected among teachers in Ondo state. The instrument used for this study was tagged “Teaching Large Classes Questionnaire” (TLCQ), this was used for the collection of data, which were analyzed using frequency count, percentages and t- test statistical tools. The findings revealed that the teachers were not favorably disposed to teaching large, poorly resourced classes. The majority were of the view that in such classes, it is difficult to engage in practical work, there was less concentration on the part of the pupil, teaching is teacher – centered, the level of pupil participation is low and there are heavier demands on facilities and instructional materials.
