Assessment of the Affective Evaluation Competencies of Social Studies Teachers in Secondary Schools in Western Nigeria
Omare, C. Otote; Iyamu, Ede O. S.
College Student Journal, v40 n3 p505-510 Sep 2006
The nature and objectives of Social Studies in Nigerian Secondary schools indicate the affective orientation of the subject. Studies abound on the dominance of cognitive orientation to the teaching and evaluation of the subject in the schools, an indication that the curriculum is poorly implemented. This study assessed the affective evaluation competences of Social Studies teachers in western Nigeria, using the observation methods and rating scale. It was found that the teachers' over-all affective evaluation competences were below the acceptable level and that professionally qualified non-graduate teachers demonstrated more competence than their graduate counterparts. The need to intensify the development of affective teaching skills in Social Studies teacher education was recommended. (Contains 2 tables.)
