Hanna Onyi Yusuf, Uduak Idoghor

Abstract


The paper listed and discussed safety and security values that can be integrated into the reading comprehension passages of the English Language curriculum for Junior Secondary Schools in Nigeria. The paper raised some challenges that English Language teachers may face in teaching some of the safety and security values. Suggestions were made on the possible ways of overcoming such challenges. The paper concluded with the need for English Language teachers to be trained in safety and security management. They should equally be encouraged to be more practical and resourceful in their teaching approach for meaningful, purposeful and impactful learning.
