Abstract

This study was conducted to seek information on the application of the Internet resources by the TESL teacher-trainees in understanding the KBSM English language Form Four poems. A total of 30 third and fourth year TESL teacher-trainees who have taught the poetry component of the Form Four English language syllabus were selected during their practical teaching. A set of questionnaires was designed to obtain primary data from the respondents on their Internet usages in understanding the poems to help them in their teaching of the subject. The overall finding of the study suggests that the Internet is being used actively as a major resource for the more established poems written by the foreigners compared to the local poets. However, books are still a preferred tool of information among the respondents especially on the topic of the local poems. In conclusion, a few propositions have been made on the usage of online resources among TESL teacher-trainees to enrich their knowledge of the KBSM English language poems. Some recommendations for future researchers have also been made in the final part of this study
