Dania, Peter
Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n28 p48-52 2015
The paper investigated Civic Education as a collaborative dimension of Social Studies Education in attainment of political ethics in Nigeria. The study adopted the survey research design. The sample for the study consisted of 580 Social Studies teachers selected from thirty secondary schools in the three senatorial districts of Delta State. The instrument used for the study was the questionnaire. The data collected were analyzed using the z-test of significance. The findings indicated that there is no significant difference in the opinion of Social Studies teachers on Civic Education as a collaborative dimension of Social Studies Education in the attainment of political ethics; there is significant difference between male and female Social Studies teachers opinion on Civic Education as a collaborative dimension of Social Studies Education in the attainment of political ethics; there is significant difference between in the opinion of urban and rural Social Studies teachers on Civic Education as a collaborative dimension of Social Studies Education in the attainment of political ethics. It was therefore recommended that Civic Education should not been seen as a rival but as a collaborative dimension of Social Studies Education in the attainment of political ethics; Social Studies teachers should be made to understand that both Civic education and Social Studies Education are directed towards one goal of which the attainment of political ethics is one; multi-disciplinary approach should be used as a method of the implementation of Social Studies Education at all levels of education.
