Jerry Erasmus Goka, Franklin Bissi, George Kafu

This study assessed the enquiry teaching competencies of teachers of Social Studies in Senior High Schools in Ho Municipality in the Volta Region. Census survey procedures were used to engage 71 teachers of Social Studies from all 15 Senior High Schools in the Ho Municipality of the Volta Region for this study. Observation checklist and questionnaire were the instruments used in collecting the data. Descriptive statistics in terms of frequencies, percentages, mean scores and standard deviations were used to analyse the data. The study found out that all teachers in the study demonstrated various levels of competency but, their overall enquiry-teaching competence was below the acceptable level, a situation that does not enhance effective teaching of Social Studies.
