INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF STUDY

Education is a process of acquiring desirable changes in ones behaviour or character. The school is a formal institution set up primarily to inculcate the desirable character in children and improve their knowledge in order to be useful to themselves and the society at large.

History is one of the subject in the curriculum that help in achieving the aims and goals of education. The comparative educational study and adaptation centres (CESAC) 1968, defined history as “the study of man and his society with his interplay between him, his environment and effect of science and technology. He went on to state that the usefulness of history is enhanced when it is seen as a way of looking at the society in order to understand social problems and thereby help to seek solution to them.

Aderalegbe (1975) also described history as “a study of how man influence and has in turn influenced by his environment, in terms of physical, social, political,, economic, psychological, cultural, scientific and technological environment. He went on to refer to history as a way of life”. History is relatively a new subject through out the world. The idea of history first sprang up ion the United State of America and later in Europe. By the early 1960 the teaching of history has spread to all parts of the United State of America and Europe and later the subject started having impact in developing countries.

History offer us important opportunities to know what is happen in, where, when and how, making our understanding positive value, history help in promoting, travelling experience and clearly show the inter-relationship and interdependence between man and places above all, it is clearly shown the world is dynamic rather than a static, history as a subject seek to solve the problems of the society and give clear insight into the problems of man and his environment. History was introduced to Nigeria schools in 1963 in view of satisfying the urge of children who are always curious and want to know where, when of various events takes place in their environment, since the introduction of the history into Nigeria education system several questions has been raised about the teaching and learning of history.
