Abstract

The tendency of restive secondary school graduates to be used in carrying out vices such as violence, examination malpractice, thuggery and cultism has necessitated this study. In total, 250 secondary school teachers undertaking part-time bachelor of education program in the University of Benin, formed the sample of this study. Simple percentage, summation and qualitative methods were the statistical tools adopted to analyse the data. A very startling and frightening revelation is that no teacher in the sample taught national consciousness and values through exercises in the affective and psychomotor domains. It is also shown that the greatest problem teachers encounter in the teaching of citizenship education is students' nonchalant attitudes to the subject. It is therefore recommended that government and multinational companies need to sponsor workshops, conferences and seminars on the use of exercises in the affective and psychomotor domains to teach citizenship education.
