     There is an assumption muted by the author that this paper attempts to clarify. He assumes that classroom teachers’ inability to implement the thematic structure of the Social Studies curriculum is due to lack of competence in pedagogical content knowledge. The implication of the above assumption is that the learning of Social Studies will be ineffective with the long run effect in the performance of students in their test scores. The peculiar nature of Social Studies education at the Upper Basic schools requires that the teacher in the subject area would demonstrate ability in the subjects’ contents, facts, theories and principles with the relevant pedagogical approaches.
