Abstract

The objective of the paper is to look into the current syllabus of the SSS geography and identify for attention, modules, topics and other items that must change in the face of global warming. The SSS geography syllabuses were reviewed. Subject teachers and examiners were interviewed on the scope, content and what must change in the face of global warming. There were some discussions with teachers of Geography. Climate elements, vegetation, ecosystems and niches, agricultural practices, crop yields, rivers and their seasonality behaviour, animal rearing and management, human behaviour and others call for attention in the syllabus. There were some radical departures from the details found in texts and examined, and the actual. The syllabuses must identify with those salient aspects of the subject whose specific content need to be modified and/or changed and adjusted for teaching and learning. Elaborate environmental education is suggested.

Keywords: Global warming, climate change, senior secondary school, geography, Nigeria.
