TEACHER ACCOUNTABILITY FOR VALUE EDUCATION IN RELATION TO INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIP

Dec-Jan,2019, Vol - 7/31, Page - 8499/8509

 Education should impart values to promote a humanistic outlook of life and it is the duty of the teachers to impart such a value-based education. In order to perform this job successfully, a teacher is expected to possess desired qualities of character and be an embodiment of human values himself. Good teachers consider, ‘accountability’ as a part of their professional ethics. It also indicates the responsibility of the teachers to adherence to codes of practice and ethics of the profession. The teacher, thus, is considered as the unit of account. As the area of educational accountability is so vast; therefore this study was undertaken to explore the area of   teacher accountability in context of value education. The sample is consisted of 200 secondary school teachers of Amritsar district, both from Government and Private sectors that was further divided into two equal groups : Rural and Urban. The descriptive research method was used. Teacher Accountability Scale for Value Education and Teacher Interpersonal Relationship Scale (both constructed by investigator herself) was used for data collection. Pearson Product Moment Correlation (r) was used to find out the degree of relationship between the criterion variable and independent variable whereas Mean, S.D. and t-test were applied to find out significant differences between criterion variable in terms of their locale and type of school. The findings of the present study revealed that Interpersonal relationship of the secondary school teachers plays a significant role in their accountability for value education. The study also found that there is no significant difference in the teacher accountability for value education among secondary school teachers with respect to their locale (rural and urban) and type of school (govt. and private).

A STUDY ON THE QUALITY OF TRAINING RECEIVED BY THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS OF ASSAM ON ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

Dec-Jan,2019, Vol - 7/31, Page - 8535/8544

 Today, determination of world environmental quality is a significant problem. This problem has resulted in a global effort to include aspects of environmental education in school curriculum at all levels in an appropriate manner. However, the objectives of environmental education cannot be realized by simply by infusing environmental concepts into existing curriculum. The effective infusion of environmental education into school programme is possible only when teachers have the required orientation. Therefore Pre-service teacher training on environmental education is necessary to make the teachers aware of: the goals and objectives of environmental education, the scope of curricular content and subject matter, proper methodologies to transfer knowledge and skills to students, and evaluation methods necessary to assess the effectiveness of learning outcomes (Rebello, 1994). According to Rebello any effective environmental education programme for preservice and in-service teacher education should consist of three basic elements: (i) The education needs (ii) A functional knowledge of environmental education and (iii) A grasp of educational methods and professional skills needed to impart cognitive, affective and psychomotor skills to the students. It is the teacher who would interpret and transmit the massage of EE to the students, whatever be the level of educational qualification one is concerned with. A teacher properly equipped with necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes, become an essential prerequisites for successfully introducing any programme of EE in schools. Thus, proper orientation of teachers into EE concerns is a matter of vital importance (Govinda, 1994).

CAPACITY AND RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT IN PUBLIC HEALTH EDUCATION AND PROMOTION

Dec-Jan,2019, Vol - 7/31, Page - 8545/8551

 Health is the extent to which an individual or group is able, on the one hand, to realize aspirations and satisfy needs; and, on the other hand, to change or cope with the environment. Public health attempts to decipher what is going on within communities and determine how best to support their wellness efforts. Nevertheless, this cannot work without their input through decision making in a spirit of partnership. Hence the need to have well trained health workforce with practice experience on promoting as well as facilitating change in the communities. Our concern in this paper is that capacity building through health education and health promotion need to be in line with people-centred health principles.

KNOWLEDGE OF PREVENTIVE MEASURESOF CONTRACEPTIVES USE AMONG WOMEN IN NIGERIA

Dec-Jan,2019, Vol - 7/31, Page - 8552/8564

 This paper assessed the knowledge of preventive measures of contraceptives use among women in Kwara State, Nigeria. A Proportional sampling procedure was used for 378 respondents between the ages of 20-44 in the selected Local Government Areas in Kwara State. Questionnaire was used to collect the data in this study and the demographic variables were analyzed using frequency and percentage distribution, statistics of mean and standard deviation.The hypotheses one were tested with chi-squarestatistics. Hypotheses twoand three sought for differences among the age groups and marital status in their knowledge ofpreventive measuresof contraceptives risks respectively; hence analysis of variance was used to know whether significant differences existed between knowledge and prevention. The result of the findings revealed that knowledge ofpreventive measuresof contraceptives among women in kwara state are high. On the basis of the findings, it was therefore recommended that health talks about preventive measures of contraceptives risks should be discussed during antenatal and post natal clinics, women shouldalso consider their health status and understand the risk involve in each method to take preventive measures.

AGEISM, MYTHS AND RIGHTS OF OLDER PERSONS IN A CHANGING WORLD

Dec-Jan,2019, Vol - 7/31, Page - 8565/8572

 Ageing is a process that is possible to happen to everyone in his/her life time, aging affects a person in different stages of his life, whether on deterioration of physical health or becoming calm, and experienced. Growing old is a natural phenomenon however attitudes, expectations, biases and myths related to it have their own defining definition for aging. Old age has been associated with positive and negative traits, the associations not only reflect the treatment of the old but also determine how it is being perceived by society. In Nigerian society many social factors such as our personal assumptions, expectations, and fears about growing older influence ageing process. Research reviews indicate that negative age stereotypes are prevalent in the majority of the population and different forms of age discrimination, this paper found that older people with negative beliefs about old age and ageing showed a deterioration of their self-concept over an interval. Some of the myths our society has about aging people include: Senility is a normal part of aging, oldest people are alone and lonely, Old people are more likely to be victims of crime and poverty, Retirees suffer decline in health and early death, oldest people have no interest or capacity for sexual relations, oldest people end up in nursing homes and are less productive than younger workers. New images of ageing should be brought into the mass media and into the cognizance of the general public, showing that older people are in fact a potential societal resource.

SPATIAL ASSESSMENTOF FLOOD RISK FACTORS AND VULNERABILITY MAPPING IN SULEJA DISTRICT OF NORTHERN NIGERIA

Dec-Jan,2019, Vol - 7/31, Page - 8583/8596

 This study aim at assessing flood risk factors and mapping areas vulnerable to flood in the study area, using Geo-spatial techniques. The method follows a multi-parametric approach and integrates some of the flood causative factors such as: rainfall distribution, elevation and slope, drainage network and density, land-use/land-cover and soil type. The Spatial Multi-Criteria Analysis (MCA) was used to rank and display potential locations, while the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) method was employed using pair-wise comparison to compute the priority weights of each factor. The various layers were integrated in weighted overlay tool in ArcGIS to generate the final vulnerability map, representing three levels of estimated flood vulnerability zones (high, moderate and low). The normalized criterion weights were obtained for each factor, and the results shows that, rainfall (34) and slope (31) have the highest influence on flood in the study area.The Consistency Ratio (CR) with an acceptable level of 0.05 was obtained which further validated the strength of the judgement. With ArcGIS, the factor weights from the AHP were incorporated to produce a Geo-hazard map and it showed that areas that are high vulnerable to flood in Suleja constitute about 37%, while moderate and low vulnerable areas constitute about 45% and 18% respectively. Elements at high risk of flood are those found at the extreme northeast, where elevation is very low, southwest where rainfall distribution is high (along the fringes of Tafa LGA and Abuja FCT respectively) and on low lying areas along the depressions. Therefore using the Geo-hazard map as a guide, local councils and other stakeholders can act to prepare for potential floods when the rains come or, better yet, proactively promote an appropriate land-use policy that will minimize threat to lives due to flood.

Dec-Jan,2019, Vol - 7/31, Page - 8608/8617

 The present study was carried out to explore the relationship between self-esteem and defense mechanisms used by secondary school students. The aim of the study was to ascertain relationship between self-esteem and five categories of defense mechanisms i. e. turning against object (TAO), projection (PRO), turning against self (TAS), principalisation (PRN) and reversal (REV). The study also aimed at finding differences between the level of self -esteem and defense mechanisms of male and female students. The sample included 77 girls and 73 boys students of secondary level (Total 150) selected randomly from four schools of Amritsar district, Punjab, India. Defense mechanism Inventory by Dr. N. R. Mrinal and Dr. Uma Mrinal was used for data collection of defense mechanism, while Self-Esteem Scale developed by R.N Singh and Ankita Shrivastava was employed to assess the level of self-esteem of students. Data analysis revealed that there is no significant correlation between self-esteem and defense mechanism in female students and overall sample of secondary school students; however a significant correlation was obtained between these two variables in case of male secondary students in TAO, PRO and REV category of defenses. No significant difference in the scores of self-esteem and defense mechanism of male and female students was found.

TEACHERS’ PERCEPTION OF INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA USE ON STUDENTS’ ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF KISWAHILI IN PUBLIC SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN KATHIANI SUB-COUNTY, KENYA

Dec-Jan,2019, Vol - 7/31, Page - 8627/8634

 Students’ academic performance is key in every academic institution. The aim of this study was to establish the perception of teachers on instructional media on academic performance of Kiswahili students in public secondary schools in Kathiani sub-county.The students’ performance in Kiswahili remains a top priority for educators in Kenya because when students get good grades, they become competitive in the world of work and may have better employment opportunities. The study adopted a descriptive survey design and the system theory was used to investigate on how perception of teachers affects the academic performance of Kiswahili students. The researcher used simple random sampling techniques to sample 20 public secondary schools to be used in the study out of the 50 secondary schools in Kathiani sub-county. Simple random sampling technique was used to select a total of 200 Kiswahili students and 40 Kiswahili teachers from the 20 selected public secondary schools. The study used questionnaires as the research instruments. There was a questionnaire for students and the teachers. Data was analyzed with the aid of the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). The study found that the use of instructional media can enhance learner’s performance as the lessons are always interesting, it makes the topic to be better understood, and also the content become more familiar to the students. Instructional media also improves the learner’s memory. The study established that majority (60%) of the teacher respondents indicated that instructional media are used in teaching Kiswahili. The study concluded that the performance of Kiswahili was good due to the use of instructional media in teaching and learning. The study also concluded that the instructional media the teacher mostly used in teaching Kiswahili was textbook. It is therefore clear that the schools in Machakos have inadequate instructional materials needed for learning. The study further established that majority (71.2%) of the respondents indicated that instructional media enhances the learning of Kiswahili subject. Teachers’ perception on the use of media improves learner’s motivation and Kiswahili performance. The study recommended that the school principals should encourage Kiswahili teachers to use instructional media with the aim of raising the academic performance of the schools as it has been proved that instructional media in teaching and learning enhanced the performance of the students.
