About JSS2 History Scheme of Work

In Junior Secondary Schools 2 (JSS2) in Nigeria, History is taught to help students deepen their understanding of history beyond basic concepts. This includes exploring the different aspects of Nigerian history, spanning from pre-colonial times to the post-colonial era, alongside significant global civilizations like the Ghana and Mali Empires. 

The scheme of work encompasses ancient civilizations, traditional structures, and the socio-political evolution of Nigeria. Additionally, students examine important historical figures, movements, and revolutions, gaining insights into the challenges and achievements of various societies. 

Through historical study, JSS2 learners cultivate critical thinking and analytical skills fostering a good comprehension of human civilization and its complexities, thus equipping them to become informed and participatory members of society.

Assessment Guide

In junior secondary schools, how students are assessed in History can differ from school to school. However, typically, they are evaluated through tests or quizzes (Continuous Assessment Tests) and end-of-term exams.

Grading usually follows a scale from A to F, with A representing excellent performance, typically scoring around 70% or 80%, and F indicating failure, usually below 50% or 45%.
