NECO Civic Education Theory Answers for 2023

Pay attention as I am going to give the complete answers to the theory questions that you saw in the previous section. I know that you would be very anxious to see those answers that I want to show you. make sure that you do not leave this page for any reason.

The following are the answers to the NECO Civic Education Theory answers for 2023 June/July examination:

1 (a)

Meaning of Civic Education

Civic education can be defined as the study of all the processes that affect people’s beliefs, commitments, capabilities, and actions as members or prospective members of communities.

Civic education need may not be intentional or deliberate; institutions and communities pass values and norms without meaning to. It may not be beneficial: sometimes people are civically educated in ways that disempower them or impart harmful values and goals.

It is certainly not limited to schooling and the education of children and youth. Families, governments, religions, and mass media are just some of the institutions involved in civic education, understood as a lifelong process.

1 (b)

Importance of Civic Education

1. positive transformation of the society

The rally call of all political parties in our nation is woven around various proposals to bring change in our society. But the real issue is not in leadership but in the value each citizen brings to the nation.

By instilling in every citizen, the values of leadership and responsibility irrespective of status and age, our nation can be transformed by our individual and collective good actions.

2. Peace and Equality

Civic education teaches us to respect each other’s belief and see each other as brothers or equal. One sad reoccurrence in our society today is ethnicity and religious superiority.

The belief that one’s ethnic group or tribe or religion is better than others. It has brought about nepotism, injustice, inequality, war and bloodshed in our Nation.

Citizens need to be enlightened through civic education and learn to accept everyone irrespective of language, tribe or belief.

3. Patriotism

Through Civic education, we as citizens begin to feel love, devotion and attachment to our country. Obeying the laws of the land, promoting good values, shunning vices and active participation in the governance of the nation.

There’s also an alliance with one another as we share a common goal of making our nation better rather than indulging in unscrupulous acts that hinder national growth.

4. Sustainable Development

The curriculum of Civic education is structured to address the goals of sustainable development which are summed up into social justice, ecological sustainability, good governance and economic productivity.

Sustainable development is one which builds on developing the society today with the future in mind. Civic education buttresses on arming citizens with current trends in this age like ICT skills as we approach the 4th industrial revolution era, as well as conflict resolution strategies, solutions in health, social, economic and political problems.

It challenges individuals not only to point out threats in our present and future but also to provide solutions to these problems, thereby sustaining growth in our nation and in the world at large.

Agents of Civic Education

(ii) Peer-group

(iii) Mass media

(iv) Religions institutions

(v) Community

2 (a)

Ways to prevent the spread of Corona-virus

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we’re told we can each play a role in preventing its spread. But how? In this video, Clara Liao, a Yale School of Medicine PhD student, sketches out the most important precautions to take on your next grocery store run or other necessary errand. 

“There is a lot of information out there about how we should be protecting ourselves and others from COVID-19,” Liao says. 

Though headlines have sometimes sent conflicting messages, health researchers agree that protective measures currently in place, such as stay-at-home orders, as well as the five key practices described below, will continue to help “flatten the curve.” (This term, which Liao describes in another illustrated summary, refers to the need to slow the spread of COVID-19 so that U.S. health care system’s staff and resources aren’t pushed beyond capacity to care for hospitalized coronavirus patients.) 

So far, the best actions to take to slow the transmission of COVID-19 include: 

Social distancing (maintain a distance of 6 feet between yourself and others) 

Stay at least 1 metre away from others, even if they do not appear to be sick, since people can have the virus without having symptoms. Avoid large gatherings, public spaces and public transportation. Avoid social touching, this includes shaking hands, kissing or hugging, instead try a hand wave or a smile.

Stay at home 

You should avoid moving from one location to another as the Corona-Virus is still prevalent. It is advisable that you stay in your home instead of visit others or going to social gathering.

This will help in a great way to curb the spread of corona-virus from one person to another. For instance, you cannot get contacted with corona-virus if your neighbor, friend, playmate, church member, co-worker has it if you strictly maintain the rule of staying at home at all times.

Avoid touching your face 

Touching of surfaces, especially in public settings or health facilities should be avoided, in case people infected with COVID-19 have touched them. Clean surfaces regularly with standard disinfectants.

Wash your hands frequently with soap for 20 seconds each time

It may be the most frequently repeated advice for avoiding illness—especially during the coronavirus pandemic—and it’s a simple one: Wash your hands.

“Among the many infection prevention practices available to doctors, good handwashing has made the single biggest impact on infection transmission and resulted in savings millions of lives,” says Arjun Venkatesh, MD, MBA, MHS, a Yale Medicine emergency medicine specialist.

Good handwashing with the help of soap and the friction of rubbing hands together is a strategy that can minimize germs, or pathogens that cause disease.

One new analysis even suggests we could dramatically decrease coronavirus infections by increasing traveler engagement with hand hygiene at certain highly traveled airports.

“The most common mistake made when it comes to handwashing is forgetting to do it in the first place; the second most common mistake is doing it so fast that you don’t get every part of both hands,” says Dr. Venkatesh. Here are handwashing tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Yale doctors whose work depends on good hand hygiene.

  • Use clean, running water to wet your hands. The water can be cold or warm—cold water actually does work and warm water is more likely to irritate skin.
  • Rub your hands with soap (and rub your hands together to lather the soap).
  • Lather both the front and back of your hands, in between all of your fingers, under the fingernails, thumbs, and up to the wrist.
  • Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds—about as much time as it would take to sing the Happy Birthday song twice from start to finish. (But keep in mind that a thorough cleaning—the friction, how intensely you rub your hands together—is more important than time spent washing hands.)
  • Dry your hands completely. You can dry them under a warm air dryer, or use a paper towel. Avoid a recently used towel as moisture is a good breeding ground for bacteria, which makes drying your hands an important step.

Once your hands are clean, avoid touching surfaces such as the sink and faucet, door handles, your phone, or other objects where you can potentially pick up new germs.

A good strategy after using the bathroom, for instance, is to push the door open with your elbow if you can or use the same paper towel with which you dried your hands to grasp the door handle and open it. Then, throw the towel in the trash.

According to the CDC, you should wash your hands before and after preparing and eating meals, when caring for another person who is sick, after using the bathroom, after coughing or sneezing, after changing a diaper, before and after treating a cut or wound, after touching an animal or anything animal-related (including pet food and pet treats), or any time your hands are dirty. 

Wear a cloth mask

There are four key things you should know about the CDC’s face mask recommendations:

  • A mask can be made from simple materials. It can be a basic covering that you make yourself using materials you find around the house even a T-shirt. The CDC does not recommend using surgical masks or N95 respirators (devices worn to block airborne particles). These are critical supplies needed by health care workers who may be at high risk for exposure to COVID-19 infection.
  • A mask is meant to protect others, not yourself. Whether or not you are feeling sick or have COVID-19 symptoms, there is evidence that if you have the virus, you may be able to transmit it to others when you speak, cough, or sneeze.
  • The mask recommendation is not for everyone. The advice doesn’t apply to children younger than 2, people who have trouble breathing, or anyone who is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
  • Do not abandon other preventive measures. The president’s Coronavirus Guidelines for America, 30 Days to Slow the Spread remains the cornerstone of the national effort to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. These guidelines also urge Americans to work or study from home if they can, avoid gatherings of more than 10 people, and practice good hygiene that includes hand washing and not touching your face.

The CDC’s advice was a turnaround from previous recommendations which said that the only people who needed masks (other than health care workers) were those who were sick or caring for someone who was ill and unable to wear one. It says its new recommendation is based on recent studies that show that a significant number of people with the novel coronavirus who don’t have symptoms can still transmit the virus to others.

Like the common cold and influenza viruses, SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, travels through the air in respiratory droplets propelled by an infected person’s sneeze or cough. 

“Research now suggests that droplets may even be emitted from just speaking or breathing and can potentially last in the air for three hours before falling to the ground,” Liao says, pointing out a worrying characteristic of the virus’ ability to spread easily between people.
