EFFECTS OF VIDEOS ON ENVIRONMENTAL KNOWLEDGE AND AWARENESS OF PRIMARY SCHOOL STUDENTSOver many centuries, the issue of environmental preservation has been on the top of theagenda of global and international concerns as one of the most important issues at both thenational and international levels. As we look around at the area in which we live, we seethat our surroundings were originally a natural landscape such as a forest, a river, amountain, a desert, or a combination of these elements. Most of us live in landscapes thathave been heavily modified by human beings, in villages, towns or cities. But even those ofus who live in cities get our food supply from surrounding villages and these in turn aredependent on natural landscapes such as forests, grasslands, rivers, seashores, forresources such as water for agriculture, fuel, wood and fish. Thus our daily lives are linkedwith our surroundings and inevitably affects them. Because of this problem all living andNon – living things are affected and demolished day – by – day. So, it is the need of presentscenario to create knowledge and Awareness about the environment. As we know thatchildhood stage is the base of a human person. If our early stage is safe and perfect then ourfuture will also automatically safe and perfect. We never forget the things which we learn inour childhood stage.

INCLUSIVE EDUCATION AND ROLE OF MANUALS: FRENCH TEACHING IN INDIAN SCHOOLSManuals or Textbooks are a key component in most language programs. In some cases, theyserve as the basis for much of the language input learners receive and the language practice thatoccurs in the classroom. They often provide the foundation for the content of the lessons, thebalance of skills taught and the kinds of language practice the students take part in. In othersituations, the textbook may serve primarily to aid the teacher in carrying out classroominstruction. For learners, the manual may be provided by the teacher. In the case of teacherswith little or no experience, textbooks may also serve as a form of teacher training - they provideguidance and suggestions on how to plan and teach lessons as well as strategies that theteachers can use. As an educator, we are philosophically committed to student diversity. Weneed to appreciate the fact that learning differences are natural and positive. The focus can beon identifying individual students\\\' interests and strengths. But making inclusive education workrequires a solid support system and also effective strategies with special emphasis on the qualityof manuals used. In the Indian context, middle school language classrooms make use of specificrecommended manuals which serves the needs of all students irrespective of their interests,learning abilities, and preferences. In this paper, the study highlights the role of manuals andinclusive education in French Pedagogy. Are the manuals used in French language teachingdifferentiated well enough to meet the needs of diverse student levels and interests? Do theexercises or activities designed at the end of the lessons cater to different learner profilesparticularly to suit the needs of students with special needs? Are the recommended manualssufficient to match the learning needs of students or should more reference manuals be included?Also, talking about the formative and summative assessments, can more emphasis be laid ondifferentiated exercises on oral and written comprehension rather than standard written testsbased on grammar skills? In this paper, we will consider the role of the textbook in terms of itsnormal day-to-day use in teaching and learning French, and then consider its role in the processof differentiation. We will also discuss the implications of a more detailed and positive view ofthe role of the textbook, stressing upon in particular, the textbook content creation anddifferentiation keeping in mind different learner needs and inclusive education.Keywords- Manuals; formative and summative assessments; inclusive education;

WOMEN EMPOWERMENT BY INDIAN MEDIA: A CRITICAL ANALYSISAll developing countries are emphasizing on the need for development of women. This is aburning issue for discussions and debates on TV channels or writing columns and articles inNews Papers. Today woman as a potent part of society has proven her abilities and alsodemanding her stand and standards in our patriarchal society. But here the matter of concern iswhat role our fourth pillar of democracy is playing to provide the voice to the hidden plight ofwomen and to assert their life? Is Indian Print Media making any efforts to bring change forthem?????????????? Every women have right to live a dignified life. As women a potent partof world always struggle to establish their identity, their perceptions are heavily influenced bymass media that many times objectify them. The main reason for a women’s low self-esteem isthe reflections of women she is experiencing all around her in the media, and the movies.Wherever she glances, she sees images of females that are completely unrealistic. They arepresented to her as ideals to emulate while being out of her reach. It\\\'s no secret that womencompare themselves to the female images they see portrayed on television, film, and advertising.At both the conscious and subconscious level, these media images of women lowers self-esteemand affect behavior at every age and stage of life. Although it is clear that the media influencesthe way women view themselves, these perspectives also give some explanation for why somewomen show resilience to the negative effects of the media, while others are dramaticallyimpacted. “Gender stereotyping presents a serious obstacle in the process of achieving realgender equality and feeds into gender discrimination, which not only limits the fulfillment of thefull potential of women, but is also one of the root causes of violence against women and girls.According to the UNESCO report in 2009, reveled, it will take another 75 years to achievegender equality in the media. The present research paper is based on the premise that continuedprojection of negative and degrading images of women in media and it must provide a balancedpicture of her positive contribution to society.
CRY THE BELOVED COUNTRY AND THE GRAPES OF WRATH: THE CULTURAL UNIVERSALITY OF TRAGEDY FOLLOWING IMPROVISATION IN A SCENE OF (ECONOMIC) CONSTRAINTOn the surface level the two stories seem like chalk and cheese, not worth comparing; whatcould one Zulu man’s quest for his son in Johannesburg and one American family’s quest forsurvival in California have in common? However, if one looks closely, one will identify certaincommon themes which shouldn’t go unnoticed, especially if one sees the two novels in light ofPaton’s remark: “I read for the first time John Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath and would soonadopt his style of rendering conversations, indicating by a preliminary dash that a speech wasabout to begin, and omitting all inverted commas. The novel made a deep impression on me…”(Towards the Mountain, Part I of his two-part autobiography, 1980).Through a comparison of the thematic and technical similarities in the two works, I hope toprove that there are no cultural boundaries, no cultural specifics, to what follows from people’sreactions to their dire economic circumstances. Indeed, tragedy and death/ suffering are the onlyinevitabilities of improvisation in a scene of (economic) constraint.

Today, Radio is competing with traditional media like newspapers, magazines and television for a larger share of the advertising pie. One relegated to the background as the ‘invisible’ medium radio today is showing its power by reaching out to audiences that were totally ignored by it for the past many decades. It’s really the most fruitful time for radio now and the more the merrier seems to be the mantra for its success.
