About SS1 Yoruba Scheme of Work

Yoruba is a language with profound historical importance, spoken by over 20 million people mainly in southwestern Nigeria, and extending into countries like Benin and Togo. It has a rich literary tradition, with early written works from the 19th century, including religious texts translated by missionaries. Yoruba serves not only as a means of communication but also as a vessel for cultural expression, embodying the traditions, values, and wisdom of the Yoruba people.

In SSS1, the Lagos state unified scheme of work for SSS1 is used to carefully study the Yoruba language, and this aims to:

  • Develop students’ skills in reading, writing, speaking, and understanding the language.
  • Increase students’ awareness and appreciation of Yoruba culture, including folklore, proverbs, music, dance, and traditional practices.
  • Introduce students to Yoruba literature, covering classic texts, contemporary works, and oral traditions to deepen their appreciation of the language’s literary wealth and its role in cultural preservation.
  • Enhance students’ overall communication skills, essential for effective interpersonal interactions and participation in various social contexts.

By immersing SSS1 students in the Yoruba language and culture, the educational system not only preserves a crucial part of Nigeria’s heritage but also equips the next generation with the skills and knowledge to succeed in a multicultural and multilingual world.

Assessment Guide

Assessment methods in Yoruba are diverse, including written tests and oral exams. These evaluations measure not only students’ language proficiency but also their grasp of cultural content and their ability to use the language in real-life situations.

Communication skills are developed through both written and oral exercises. Students participate in reading comprehension tasks, analyzing short texts and answering questions to show their understanding. Writing exercises focus on constructing sentences, developing paragraphs, and basic composition, allowing students to express their thoughts clearly in written Yoruba.

Grading is based on a scale from A to F, with A signifying excellent performance, typically scoring around 70% or 80%, and F indicating failure, generally below 50% or 45%.
