THE EFFECT OF JOB VALUE ON OCCUPATIONAL SELF EFFICACY OF SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS.

Jul-Aug,2015, Vol - 3/19, Page - 322/328

Teacher efficacy as a belief is expected to guide teachers in their behavior decisions and
motivation with regard to teaching. Specifically teacher efficacy for teaching affects their daily
decisions related to teaching and their willingness to invoke specific strategies and techniques.
In Bandura’s (1986, 1997) theory, self-efficacy is not considered as a trait, but is instead seen as
context-specific. The current study takes place in an occupational setting, we focus on a contextspecific
form of self-efficacy, namely occupational self-efficacy, defined as “the competence that
a person feels concerning the ability to successfully fulfill the tasks involved in his or her job”.
There is another important aspect of teacher’s behavior which is Job value. At work place,
values are major influences on how individuals approach work. Values drive our decisions and
reason us to summon up energy to preserve what people believe in or what people want to
defend. It is important to know, what the worker wants from his job because Job Values lead to
job satisfaction and personal adjustment of an individual. So the different levels of Job Values
can be seen in different teachers and these levels can affect Occupational Self Efficacy of
teachers. In this context the study started with the question, is there any effect of job value on the
occupational self efficacy of secondary school teachers? In the present study sample of 30
secondary schools of Agra city was selected by simple random sampling and all the available
teachers working in these secondary schools were selected. Occupational self efficacy Scale
prepared by Sanjyota Pethe, Sushama Chaudhari, and Upinder Dhar and Job value scale

THE NEW CONCEPT DEFINITION AND ANALYSIS OF BIOGRAPHICAL RESEARCHING METHOD

Jul-Aug,2015, Vol - 3/19, Page - 352/359

The applied range of biographical researching method is quite broad, including sociology,
anthropology, history, ethnology and pedagogy. It is developing in the same pattern and
trend with contemporary cultural studies. Its main types contain researching and collecting
data from autobiography, biography, life history, oral history, narrative inquiry. One
important and effective way of its implementation is to use the biographical narration. It is
necessary to do some differentiation and analysis between biographical research method and
ethnographic methods, in order to make use of them better.

ASSESSMENT OF CUSTOMER’S SATISFACTION IN HDFC (AN EMPIRICAL STUDY IN LUCKNOW CITY)

Jul-Aug,2015, Vol - 3/19, Page - 360/369

A well-functioning housing market influences not only shelter concern, but also workplaces
for home-based entrepreneurs. The best housing sectors should enable the adequate
provision of shelter at the reasonable cost and favourable schemes across all segments of the
population. The customer’s satisfaction is an indicator of the efficiency and growth of the
institution. In fact the key of the success of any institution providing customer service is
appraised through the qualitative assessment of different parameters. Thus the main objective
of the institutions should be to create, cultivate and retain the customers. If the institutions
are able to fulfil this objective the residual results like profitability and productivity would
automatically follow. The present research is an attempt of the researchers to assess the
extent to which current customers are satisfied with the services offered by HDFC, a major
institution working in the housing Finance Industry.

ATTITUDE TO RESEARCH IN RELATION WITH THE RESEARCH MANAGEMENT OF RESEARCHERS IN DIFFERENT GROUPS OF DISCIPLINES

Jul-Aug,2015, Vol - 3/19, Page - 370/374

Successful research demands tremendous personal involvement. If the researcher has little or no
interest in the research he/she is conducting then it will be reflected in the output of research. A
low quality research is a mere academic drudgery rather than an exciting intellectual
experience. A person’s attitude to any work always affects his work, keeping this in mind, the
paper highlights the relationship between attitude to research and research management of
researchers pursuing the doctoral research. A significant, strong and positive relationship
indicates that researchers having a highly positive attitude to research will also strive hard to
manage their research well.

A STUDY ON HEMISPHERCITY IN ACTIVATING MATHEMATICAL SKILLS

Jul-Aug,2015, Vol - 3/19, Page - 408/419

This present study is aim to study, mathematical skills of the pupil in relation to their brain
dominance. Knowledge in mathematic related field such as numerical knowledge, arithmetic,
graphical & geometric sense etc, are important for any individual for their day to day life. Hence
the present study intended to study the mathematical skills of the pupil. Since each individual
have their own cognitive level, hence the dominant brain be the factor for their academic
performances. So this leads to study the mathematical skills of the pupil in relation to their brain
dominance. The human brain divided into two hemispheres, the right & left, they do unique
function and also having unique characteristics. All these aspects are considered for the study.
By random selection method 190 samples were collected from students of standard IX. From the
analysis, the major findings were arrived such as, the Left and Right brainers are differed
significantly and the Left brainers are good in Total Mathematical Skills also they performed
well in the dimensions viz., Arithmetic & Numerical, Statistical, Mathematical Linguistic,
Logical skills. In other hand the Right brainers are good in Geometric skills. Considering right
& left brainer in both gender (boys and girls) the left brainers are performed better in total
mathematical skills. The relationship also shows that the entire dimension positively correlated
with total mathematical skill for both right and left brainers.

ARE SCHOOL TEACHERS (PRESCHOOL AND PRIMARY) OPEN TO THE THOUGHT OF INTEGRATING DIFFERENTLY-ABLED CHILDREN IN THEIR CLASSROOM? - OPINION REGARDING INCLUSIVE EDUCATION

Jul-Aug,2015, Vol - 3/19, Page - 432/445

Differently-abled children in inclusive education differs from previously held notions of
‘integration’ or ‘mainstreaming’ which was largely concerned with disability and special
educational needs. It implied learners ‘changing’ or becoming ‘ready for’ or ‘deserving of’
accommodation by the mainstream. The benefits of Inclusive Education have been documented
by a number of researchers. Inclusive education is about the child’s right to participate in
regular education and the school’s duty to accept the child. Dearth of research in the opinion of
school teachers (preschool and primary) in the Indian context served as an impetus for the
current research. The objective of the study was to elicit from the school teachers (preschool
and primary) the challenges faced and strategies to overcome regarding integrating differentlyabled
children in their classroom. The sample consisted of consisted of 20 teachers (11 at the
preschool and 9 at the primary school level). Research employed a multi-method (face-to-face
in-depth interview, observation and examination of records) was design. Results revealed that,
challenges and strategies indicated by school teachers were categorized in relation to (i)
schools, (ii) teachers, (iii) differently-abled students (children with special needs), (iv) parents of
students with special needs, (v) regular /normal children and (vi) parents of regular/normal
children. A majority of the participants (60%) stated that lack of infrastructure and facilities,
such as classroom size, modified toilets, ramps, etc were major challenges for school, while half

SEXISM IN SPORTS AS REFLECTED IN CINEMA OF INDIAN CULTURAL BACKGROUND

Jul-Aug,2015, Vol - 3/19, Page - 471/476

Sexism in sports is a quite common thing and it has been represented faithfully in cinema.
The present paper is a thematic study revealing sexism in sports as shown in two movies of
Indian cultural background: ‘Bend It Like Beckhem’ (2002) and ‘Chak De! India’(2007). It
underpins the problems faced by the Indian sportswomen of those sports that are
traditionally linked to men and also shows how women are discouraged from participating
and competing in sports. It also highlights the male view of women as weak and less
competent. The protagonists of the movies under discussion suffer sexism at familial, social
and professional levels in sports because of their being women. The paper throws light on
various types of barriers -such as socio-cultural, biological and psychological- which women
players have to cross, in addition to dealing with a bizarre and weird kind of treatment which
is never offered to their male counterparts. It depicts how family pressures and restrictions,
cultural inhibitions, lack of support and biased attitude of society can ultimately yield to the
determination of women players. The paper suggests that sports can be used as an effective
tool for women empowerment.

The kind of sense organs found within the muscles and joints are called proprioceptors. The
function of propioreceptors is conduct sensory reports to the central nervous system from
muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints. These sense organs are concerned with kinesthetic senses
that, in general, unconsciously tell us where our body part in relation to our environment. Their
contributions enable us to execute a smooth and coordinated movement. The purpose of this
study was to compare the kinesthetic perception of male and female hockey players. Total 15
male and 15 female intervarsity hockey players of 18 to 24 years old from L.N.I.P.E Gwalior
(M.P), were selected as subjects for this study. The kinesthetic perception of the subject was
measured with the administration of kinesthetic obstacles test. To determine the difference of
kinesthetic perception among male and female hockey players independent t-test test was
employed and the significant level was set at 0.05. The result of the data indicated that there was

INTERROGATING PEDAGOGICAL STRATERGIES

Jul-Aug,2015, Vol - 3/19, Page - 878/885

 The paper proposes to analyze educational strategies of education employed in Latin America
and Russia and does a comparative study with the pedagogical strategies used in India. It
suggests innovative methods of schooling can prove to be effective tools in bringing major
transformations. The paper proposes that the subjective consciousness of students must be taken
into account against the objective truths of the text books. The education system must not
advocate conforming of students into the present ideological apparatus but rather should
promote freedom from it towards humanization, because material gain must not be seen as the
ultimate ambition of a student’s life. The educational institutions must advocate critical intent
among students for the natural process of growth to take place. In the end paper examines
various cons of the idea of completely abolishing the system of school education.
Key Words: Ideology, deschooling, humanization, dehumanization, oppressor, and oppressed

DEVELOPMENT OF INFRASTRUCTURE IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS OF ASSAM UNDER SARVA SHIKSHA ABHIYAN

Jul-Aug,2015, Vol - 3/19, Page - 542/562

In India education has been accorded much importance since independence as it has been
perceived that educational development is necessary to ensure economic and over all
development of the country. In order to develop human resources in a better way it is
important that education is imparted to all sections of population in the country irrespective
of their caste, class, sex or religion. However, despite these provisions it has been noticed
that the spread of education is not uniform and there are disparities of all kinds in the field of
education. Availability of schools is not a major issue now. The real problem observed is
facilities provided to these primary schools functioning in various localities. In order to
universalize primary education, it is necessary to provide schools everywhere and also
provide all necessary facilities to all the schools. This is because schools without proper
infrastructure and facilities, termed as ill-equipped schools, may not be in a position to
impart education properly and the quality of education in such schools will be poor. In 2001
the Government of India has launched Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA). It is the latest effort of
the Government to universalize Elementary education in a mission mode. It aims to provide
useful quality education for all children in the age group of 6- 14 years for which it has set
the target 2010. Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan was launched in Assam in February, 2002. This
paper looks at the status of basic infrastructure facilities provided by Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan
in the primary schools of Assam with special reference to Nalbari, Sonitpur, Jorhat, and
Dibrugarh District.

TRIBES OF GOA: THEIR INSTITUTION AND MOVEMENT

Jul-Aug,2015, Vol - 3/19, Page - 563/579

The tribes like Gawda, Kunbi and Velip are the first settlers of Goa. It is very difficult
to reconstruct their early history as literary sources are not available for the same. The
available evidence, particularly archaeological literary and folklore have proved that the
tribes are aboriginals of Goa. It is said that the Goan tribes racially belongs to the protoaustraloid
group. And also the tribal communities are called as Mull Goenkar i.e. indigenous
Peoples meaning the original settlers of Goa. During the period of colonialism, the tribal
people also suffered from external and internal invader. The tribal population has
contributed to the political, economic and social growth of Goa. However, this aspect of
Goa’s history is yet to be reconstructed. The present paper deals with the Goan tribes, their
institutions and movement. This is based on books, journals, newspaper, and folklore. The
data from “Mand” of GKUVD (Gawda, Kunabi, Velip and Dhangar Federation) of Goa is
also used here.

PEDAGOGICAL CONTENT KNOWLEDGE: AN EMERGING ISSUE IN PREPARING TEACHERS

Jul-Aug,2015, Vol - 3/19, Page - 580/591

Teacher is one of the important components of education system. The quality and extent of
learner achievement are determined primarily by teacher competence, sensitivity and teacher
motivation (NCFTE, 2009). The achievement of the educational goals largely depends on the
quality and standard of the teacher. Thus it is important to make them prepare for the future or
upgrade their knowledge with new concepts to address the better quality and standard of them.
Pedagogical content knowledge is one of such emerging concept which should be integrated in
the curriculum of teacher education at all the level i.e. D.El.Ed, B.Ed or M.Ed. Pedagogical
content knowledge (PCK) is a type of knowledge unique to teachers. PCK concerns the manner
in which teachers relate their pedagogical knowledge to their subject matter knowledge in the
school context for teaching students with specific level of understanding (Shulman, 1986). It is
the integration of teacher pedagogical knowledge with their subject matter knowledge in the
specific context so that definite needs of the group of students as well as individual students can
be addressed and make the learning simple to understand. In a country like India where the
teachers have to deal with different context and different level of understanding of the students
PCK of the teacher is more important instead of the content knowledge or pedagogical
knowledge singly. This paper will try to define and explore the concept PCK followed by
explaining the need of implementing the concept PCK in Indian Teacher Education curriculum
and thereby will try to identify the elements related to PCK that has been mentioned in the new
NCTE regulation i.e. National Council for Teacher Education (Recognition Norms and
Procedure) Regulations, 2014.

LINGUISTIC MINORITY CONCEPT IN INDIA: MYTH AND REALITY

Jul-Aug,2015, Vol - 3/19, Page - 592/606

In the contemporary period, in India religion and language are most sensitive issues in
our country because on this basis the people dominate other society. The Constitution of India
used the word ‘Minority’ in the Articles No. 29 and 30 and 350A and 350 B. It means the people
of the dominant group or community are numerically high (which is called as majority) and the
other group is called as minority. The concept of minority has been expanding beyond the
boundaries of the state and nation. It basically speaks about two kinds of minorities in India
which are, religious and linguistic. The Indian states have been formed on the basis of linguistic.
This point of view has created various problems related to the Minority and their rights. Many
high courts and Supreme Court judgments have not discussed the concept and criteria of
minority status but they have discussed their rights. Therefore, the time has come to think about
the concept of minority and their rights.
Key Words - Concept, Minority, linguistic. Rights. Religious

A STUDY OF STUMBLED ENTREPRENEURIAL ACTIVITY WRF TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ON MAHILA WORKERS OF UNORGANIZED SECTOR WITH REFERENCE TO NORTHEAST AREAS OF MUMBAI CITY

Jul-Aug,2015, Vol - 3/19, Page - 607/618

Domestic Violence is a human rights issue and a serious offence committed against women at
large in many Indian houses. It is more rampant, persistent, severe and violent among rural as
well as urban population. The severity is definitely high amongst the uneducated, poor, low
middle, and even the middle class population perhaps the figure of domestic violence may tend to
even be equal in case of educated working class of population. The domestic violence is serious
deterrent to development. The Vienna Accord of 1994 and the Beijing Declaration and the
Platform for Action (1995) have acknowledged this. The United Nations committee on
Convention on Elimination of all forms of discrimination against women (CEDAW) in its
General Recommendation No. XII (1989) has recommended that State parties should act to
protect women against violence of any kind especially that occurring within the family. The
Study on women workers provides information on their wage and working conditions, socioeconomic
background and life styles. Some are migrants which make them come to Mumbai city
for livelihood because of their financial compulsions. Some women work as maid servants, some
as construction laborers, some as vendors, sweepers, scavengers etc. They live in slums, in bad
living conditions with no sanitation facilities, lack of water and health of these women is more
vulnerable showing mortality rates, delivery deaths, ailments, prolonged diseases like
Tuberculosis, asthma, skin diseases etc. The Research background is magnifying the details and
findings through applied research. This is a problem solving and problem oriented research. It ismore like a action research carried out to find solution to the real life problems faced by the
unorganized sectors mahila workers. The research appeals to the policy makers to initiate and
design policies, strategies, take concrete and implementative actions and have accountability
towards such distorting offences disturbing the physical and mental harassment of women. The
aim of the study is to highlight the phenomenon of domestic violence which is widely prevalent
but has remained invisible. Presently a woman is cruelly physically and mentally harassed by
her husband and her in-laws or her husband’s relatives, is an offence under section 498-A of the
Indian Penal Code. The present paper is a dedicated attempt to identify and study more
analytically the cases of domestic violence committed against the women workers in home based
organizations prominently termed as self employed mahila workers. The Methodology
manifested in the research study and the data collection is through primary and secondary
source. For secondary data books, journals, periodicals, thesis, dissertations and government
reports are used and the primary data is collected through Depth interview by Non-Disguised
method. This method is adopted to make the respondent feel free and since the issue is more
sensitive, there is full chance that the respondent will not want to speak or reveal the facts
therefore to have more friendly approach this method is used. The study is a random sample
survey of 50 mahila workers but surprising only 20 women were vocal, bold enough to lodge
police complaint against their family members especially the husband. The study depicts the
scenario of domestic violence prevailing amongst the mahila workers of unorganized sector or
self employed women working in Bhaji Poli Kendra run by women entrepreneurs in North East
Areas of Mumbai City with reference to Chembur, Govandi and Mankhurd residing women.
The Findings are very but natural and abstract that every woman interviewed has been victim of
domestic violence. 100% findings reveal that domestic violence in this study has proved correct
and rampant rise is measured for more predominant reasons of poor economic conditions. The
study implies to Accelerate the economic conditions of women, make them independent and earn
their livelihood to establish their empowerment over their family members. The data interpreted
in the study shows the mental disturbances and psychological issues of the women. Their
strength and cope up strategies to tolerate injustice and harassment. The study implies to
provide information of some schemes to women initiated by the government so has to make their
economically strong, information of law and NGO who can be approached and contacted for
conviction of the crime and in some cases consultation talks with family members to find solution
to the problems.

INDIAN CONSTITUTION & RIGHT TO EDUCATION

Jul-Aug,2015, Vol - 3/19, Page - 687/692

 India made a constitutional commitment to provide free & compulsory education to all children
up to the age of 14, by adding this provision in article 45 of the directive principles of state
policy. It is now a legally enforceable duty of the Centre & the states, to provide free &
compulsory education. This act is an essential step towards improving each child’s accessibility
to secondary & higher education. The act also contains specific provisions for disadvantaged
groups such as child laborers, migrant children, children with special needs, or those who have
a disadvantage owing to social, cultural, economical, geographical, linguistic, gender or any
such factor. The aim of compulsory education is to protect children’s right to education because
children have no way of asserting that right for themselves when through neglect or ignorance,
no attention is paid to this need.
Key words – Indian constitution, Right to Education act
