Teaching of Secondary School Subjects to Ensure Applicability of Ideas for Living in an Era of Economic Recession in Nigeria

Veronica Okogbaa


The paper explains that the organized contents of secondary school subjects have relevant knowledge, facts and skills that citizens need to acquaint themselves, particularly during difficult periods, such as a recession in a country. It examines the curriculum at the Secondary school level in Nigeria and advocates a more effective teaching of school subjects in order that learners can benefit immensely from the schooling process, thereby making it more effective and rewarding. It offers useful strategies that can be adopted by teachers to ensure that learners make the connection between their lives and what they learn at school. It is hoped that these strategies will demonstrate to learners, teachers, parents, administrators and policy makers that the subjects offered in school are not compartmentalized, only to pass examinations and be issued a paper certificate but to gain relevant knowledge to make informed decisions for successful living in the society. The paper concludes that the application of these strategies are even more urgent in a period of an economic recession such as this, where every citizen is required to make decisions based on proven facts, instead of conjecture, the premises of which can be drawn from the wealth of information in taught school subjects.
