This study investigated English Language teachers’ lesson preparation and delivery in English Grammar in at public senior secondary schools in Orelope Local Government of Oyo State. Six research questions were formulated to guide the study. The participants were 20 SS2 teachers of English language from 10 randomly selected public senior secondary schools in Orelope Local Government Area, Oyo State. The instruments used were Teachers’ Lesson Preparation (r=0.79) and Lesson Delivery(r=0.98) rating scales. The study lasted four weeks. Data were analysed using the descriptive statistics of frequency counts, simple percentages, mean and standard deviation. Findings showed that teachers’ lesson preparation was good. In lesson delivery, teachers communicated with learners in simple English Language expressions. They were mobile while lessons progressed. They modulated their voices appropriately during lessons delivery but did not reinforce students’ efforts appropriately nor used sufficient examples to illustrate concepts during instruction. It is then recommended that teachers be exposed to self-development schemes that could improve their classroom practice in terms of lesson preparation and delivery.
