THE STRATEGIES TO ENHANCE TEACHING AND LEARNING OF HISTORY IN SECONDARY SCHOOL

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

 

History is a branch of science which was last major subject that was introduced into the school curriculum.

History is taught in the senior secondary school in other for the students to acquire knowledge that will make them useful to them and to the society they belong.

The main aim of studying history is to study matter which includes it composition, properties and the changes it undergoes.

History requires experimental work in laboratory for development. Laboratory work is essential for putting theoretical principles into practice and testing proposed, hypothesis, therefore proficiency in laboratory work is essential for them to become good history. In the course of a laboratory work, one translates practice application and gradually widens the scope. History aim at building up the ability to solve carefully and speedily problems which come constantly in variety of ways

Further more, history as a branch of science requires special skills when teaching it and as such following skills are developed in the students studying history, skills includes identifying problems, asking questions, formulating hypothesis, observing, measuring etc. in order to improve the performance of students studying history in secondary school, laboratory exercise in an integral part and should be used only when.

Laboratory practical are readily needed as a means of verifying a scientific law, principle or a theory already known to the students.

It is needed as means of obtaining and learning scientific information.

The laboratory practical can be meshed with text book and other learning activities.

It is needed as means of obtaining scientific skills and knowledge.

Some experiments are performed outside the laboratory just as some laboratory activities cannot be classed experiment while most laboratory activities are conceived in order to provide practice in designing, operating and interpreting data, however experiment are operations or proceeding designing for purpose of testing is supposition, confirming what is known and discovering what  hat not be known (unknown) history also enables the students to developed confidence in what do and themselves as an individuals, as it involves matter.

The inception of natural study was introduced by people who were both specialist in science and history as it branch which is a dynamic and inevitable learning experience for the students. However, once entrusted to teachers with little or no background studying in history with varying degree of teaching. The effectiveness of the study on the nature of history in the secondary school is degenerated bodily at the point, we define history as the study of matter including it properties, reactions, composition and it changes from one state to another state of matter.

The student’s education attainment in history is inevitable and should be viewed with a lot incentive in both teaching and learning on the side of the teachers and students respectively at all levels. The training of students is very importance.

Since the extent of a nations future labour force, leadership political stability and strength of technical advancement lies in the hand of students it therefore hoped that this write up shall unveil some factors responsible for the poor performance of the students in history subjects in Oredo Local Government Area of Edo State.

 

BACKGROUNG OF THE STUDY

The importance of history cannot be over emphasized as it implication to the social and economic life of the people who are well recognized by every nation and some of it knowledge is applied in industries like brewery industries, food, medicine, textile will and constructing companies.

Soaps, acids and other basic chemical are now produced knowledge gained from the study of history is used in the manufacture of fertilizer to increase the fertility of the soil which provide food for the nation, plastics, ceramics, paints, cement, soap and detergent, and drinks etc. history in one way of the order affect the standard of living of people in Edo State, nations at large.

It is necessary to lay more emphasis on scientific knowledge which v is part of this respect; Fafuwa (1997) suggested that science should be made a compulsory subject in secondary and tertiary institution. As well as educating the masses so that Edo State will be able to move from its static role of a spectator to that of an actor in this exciting break through history should be taught effectively in order to bring about technological advancement and development in Oredo Local Government Area of Edo and Nigeria at large, as it affect the live of the people.
