Résumé
Learning can take place as a result of newly obtained perception, knowledge, new information, facts and principles. Instructional materials of different varieties can be used to reinforce learning since they motivate, stimulate and arrest the attention of the learners. Teaching and learning materials are devices and aids through which learning and teaching are done in schools. It is through education where a foundation for growth and groundwork is established and on which most of our social and economic well-being is developed. Correct learning and teaching materials must be used in the learning process to endorse active understanding and not rote learning. The specific objectives of the study were to establish the influence of teaching and learning materials availability, teaching and learning materials use, teaching and learning materials variety and teachers’ professional development on the development and academic performance of pupils in upper primary schools in Karunga Zone, Gilgil Sub County. The study was anchored on the Theory of Instruction. The study adopted descriptive research design. The target population was 587 teachers of Karunga zone, Gilgil Sub County. The research study adopted stratified sampling and targeted a sample of 100 respondents. Data collection exercise was aided by use of questionnaires. The data was analyzed through descriptive and inferential statistics. Descriptive statistics comprised of frequency, mean and standard deviation. Inferential statistics comprised of correlation and multiple regression. The data was presented in form of tables and graphs. The correlation and regression between the independent variables and academic performance was as follows : Teaching and learning materials availability (r= .652, p .000 ; β= .751, p .000) ; Teaching and learning materials use (r= .263, p .000 ; β= .295, p .023), Teaching and learning materials variety (r= .117, p .321 ; β= .068, p .529) ; and Teachers’ learning materials professional development (r= .343, p .000 ; β= .491, p .000). The results are important to the policy makers at the Ministry of Education regarding the influence of teaching and learning materials on the development and performance of pupils in upper primary schools. It will also guide other researchers and academia interested in the area of teaching and learning materials
