Topic: ISLAMIC STUDIES CURRICULUM
Description: The importance of the curriculum in the educational sector cannot be overemphasized. It is pivotal to the success or achievement of the educational goals and thus I have a keen interest in this research area. The whole process of developing a curriculum from the all-important area of needs assessment through the planning, design, implementation, innovation, control and down to evaluation is both fascinating and interesting. In a research done by me, the data collected were analyzed and the findings of the study revealed that: 1. There are not enough teachers of Islamic studies teachers in the selected schools. 2. The attitude of the Islamic Studies students is quite encouraging. 3. The teachers are not well acquainted with the 21st century skills? 4. The teachers level of awareness of the curriculum as a document is high 5. The suggested methodologies and instructional materials for the teaching-learning of Islamic Studies are adequate. 6. The student-teacher ratio in the Islamic Studies class is high. 7. Teachers’ perceptions of the adequacy of the curriculum is positive. 8. Teachers do not carry out innovations in the teaching of Islamic Studies periodically in the implementation of the curriculum. All these are and should interest a teacher.

AN ASSESSMENT OF THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ISLAMIC STUDIES CURRICULUM AT THE BASIC LEVEL OF EDUCATION
In this study an attempt had been made to assess the implementation of the Islamic Studies curriculum at the Basic level of education. The goal of this study is to find out, understand and proffer solutions to problems militating against the successful implementation of the Islamic studies curriculum. On the whole, 212 students, three teachers, three principals and two parents were involved in the study. The research instruments developed, validated and used for the study in collecting data are Curriculum Implementation Questionnaire For Students (CIQS), Curriculum Implementation Questionnaire For Teachers (CIQT) and Interview Guide For Principals, Teachers, Parents and Students (IGPTPS). The result of the study showed that there are not enough teachers of Islamic Studies in the sampled schools. The study also revealed respondents’ high satisfaction with the instructional aims and objectives, methodology, materials and the evaluation techniques. However, an area where the respondents showed their dissatisfaction with is their needs. Consequently, the researcher recommended among other things that more attention and better provision should be paid and made for the needs of the students.
