The specific objectives of the study were to investigate the various teaching methods that teachers use in teaching SST and their impact on academic in primary schools in Ojwina Division Lira Municipality, determine the quality of teachers and academic performance of learners in SST in primary schools in Ojwina Division Lira Municipality and determine the attitudes of learners towards SST in primary schools in Ojwina Division Lira Municipality. The methods used for data collection were questionnaires to the teachers and focus group discussions with the pupils. The findings revealed by 81 % that the methods used in teaching SST to a greater extent affects the academic performance of learners According to the study most of the teachers were not trained to teach SST and this was supported by 56% of the respondents The study revealed by 57% that pupils have negative attitudes towards SST. The study recommended that; SST learning facilities should be provided by the government and other stake holders to enable teachers effectively use different teaching methods that can help learners understand and enjoy the subject. Teachers should be trained specifically for a subject he/she is good at and hence teach that particular subject and not teaching all the subjects as it was observed during the study. In relation to the above more teachers and classes should be provided to decrease on the class size which makes it difficult for teachers to effectively teach and also access all pupils. Teachers should be motivated by the government and school heads so that they are happy and hence effectively teach the learners.
