Problems Of Teaching Social Studies In Nigeria Secondary School

Problems Of Teaching Social Studies In Nigeria Secondary School (A Case Study Of Igbo Etiti Local Government Area)

ABSTRACT
Although Social Studies is now the language of government, business and commerce, education, the mass media, literature and internal as well as external communication, there are still problems in the teaching of Social Studies
as a second language in secondary schools. Students presume that Social Studies is a difficult language to learn and so do not make effort to learn it. Teachers also find it difficult to cope with the heavy demand required for effective teaching and learning of Social Studies. This research work was carried out using the twenty secondary schools in Igbo Etiti Local Government Area of Enugu state. Six boys secondary schools, eight girls secondary schools and six co-educational schools. The target population was one thousand, eight hundred and fifty four students in JS III and one thousand, eight hundred and eighty eight students in SS III and one hundred and five Social Studies teachers. Ten schools and two hundred students from both junior and senior secondary schools were used for the study. Forty teachers were also selected and analyzed using mean. Based on the findings some recommendations were made. Teaching Social Studies
