It is important that we emphasize the importance of Patriotism and nationalism to pupils.
Teachers should find ways to demonstrate patriotism by finding positive things to say about the country. The teacher has to demonstrate confidence in the national values of the country, has to be patriotic.
Teachers must show pupils the essence of being a Nigerian, must show them that there is much to celebrate as a citizen of the country.
Alongside emphasizing important national characteristics and culture, here are some simple suggestions for creating a patriotic atmosphere in your classroom:
- Ask pupils to recite the national pledge and national anthem.
- Explain the meaning behind the national pledge and anthem.
