TO STUDY THE EFFECTIVENESS OF CONCEPT ATTAINMENT MODEL OF TEACHING ON ACHIEVEMENT OF SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS IN CHEMISTRY

Dec-Jan,2018, Vol - 5/24, Page - 6858/6863

 Concept Attainment Model as teaching strategy to teaching is concerned with the concept formation and concept attainment. Concept attainment is a process of finding out defining attributes of a given category. Concept Attainment Model helps to clarify ideas. It engages students in formulating a concept through the use of illustrations, word cards or specimens called examples. Concept Attainment Model is well suited to classroom use. This study was conducted to determine the effect of Concept Attainment Model on academic achievement of Secondary School Students in Chemistry by using experimental method. The sample of the study included 60 Class IX students. Purposive sampling technique was used to collect data. The students were divided into two groups (30 students in each group) i.e. experimental and control group on the basis of scores on intelligence test. The experimental group was taught through concept attainment model and the control group was taught by using traditional method.  After completion of teaching, a self-developed achievement test was administered on both the groups. For drawing out the result, t-test was used. The result showed that students exposed to concept attainment model possessed higher score than the students taught through traditional method.

DEMONETISATION AND GOLD: A STUDY OF INDIA

Dec-Jan,2018, Vol - 5/24, Page - 6864/6869

 On November 8, 2016, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced demonetization of Rs. 500 and Rs.1000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi Series. This is required to tackle counterfeiting Indian banknotes, to effectively nullify black money hoarded in cash and curb funding of terrorism with fake notes. The present study examines the impact of demonetization decision on gold prices in India. It is studied by comparing the data of gold prices for 30 days, 15 days and 7 days before and after November 8, 2016. The data consists of daily prices of gold obtained from World Gold Council database. Paired t-test and wilcoxon signed ranks test are used to study the statistical significance of the results. It has been found that demonetization decision has significantly reduced the price of gold in India. It may be due to the reason that after demonetization announcement, income tax department tightened the noose around the jewellers as people rushed to convert their old currency notes (Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000) into precious metal gold. It resulted in dropping the price of gold in India in short run.
Keywords: Demonetization, Gold price, Prime Minister

FOSTERING AND PRESERVING THE STRENGTH AND DIGNITY OF A MAN WITH REFERENCE TO JUANA IN JOHN STEINBECK’S THE PEARL

Dec-Jan,2018, Vol - 5/24, Page - 6870/6873

 John Steinbeck was a prolific and popular writer who received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1962. His strength as an artist lies as much in converting the topical into universal. Steinbeck’s women characters are stronger than their male counterparts. They try to be perfect counterparts to their men by making active contribution to their domestic, social, economic and political life. Undoubtedly, their prime concern is their duty towards their family, but they are not blind to the happenings around. A living example of it is Ma Joad in The Grapes of Wrath (1939) and Juana in The Pearl (1947). For instance, one may perceive both the angel and the tigress in Ma Joad and Juana. This paper aims to study on how Juana as a representative of womankind plays the role of fostering and preserving the strength and dignity of his man, Kino in the novella The Pearl.

EFFECT OF GROWTH REGULATORS ON ROOTING OF CUTTINGS IN PLUM

Dec-Jan,2018, Vol - 5/24, Page - 6889/6896

 1200 cuttings made from the trees of Plum cv. Kala Amritsari were planted in 60 beds of size 1×1m., with 20 cuttings on each bed. Uniform sized 40 cuttings per replication were treated with ten treatments of IBA and PHB growth regulators by slow dip (24 hours) and quick dip (2 minutes) method before planting along with control. Results showed that IBA@2000ppm quick dip was found to be significant in improving the shoot and root characters in cuttings with maximum shoot length (16.87cm),  average shoot girth (0.46cm), shoot number (4.22), fresh weight of shoots (6.82), dry weight of shoots (1.43g), leaf number (154.28),  average leaf area (305.79 cm2), root number (44.90), average root length (10.88cm), length of longest root (13.5cm), fresh weight of roots (1.52g), dry weight of roots (1.09). While the cuttings treated with slow dip of IBA 150 ppm exhibited significant survival percentage (81.00%), percentage of rooted cuttings (74.33%) and sprouting percent (75.17%).
Keywords: Plum, Kala Amritsari, Cuttings, IBA, PHB, Root development, Shoot development, Survival.

EMBLEMATIZING HOPE, INSPIRATION AND THE CALL TO RECONSIDER: AUSTRALIAN FLORA, FAUNA AND LAND IN JUDITH WRIGHT

Dec-Jan,2018, Vol - 5/24, Page - 6936/6940

 Australian poetry of the contemporary era can trace its origins to the bush ballads. They explore themes relevant to the times and also probe into the much debated topic of the times – namely environmental problems. They offer complementary insights on protecting the nature as well as learning from nature rather than presenting poems which have the non-human environment as a mere framing device. It makes possible a literature of indubitable goodness which not only delights but also instructs. A reading of the select poems of Judith Wright clarifies why she has been hailed as the conscience of a nation and here is an attempt to sketch how the she self-consciously frames an ethics of environmental justice to the non-anthropocentric world
Keywords: Australian poetry, environment, fauna, flora, land,

STUDENT RESEARCH CONVENTION: BEST PRACTICES FOR REARING YOUNG TALENTS

Dec-Jan,2018, Vol - 5/24, Page - 6947/6954

 Education plays a significant role in the   preparation of life including youths. It helps them to identify their interests and aptitude and gives them a sense of direction to higher form of education particularly research. Spirit of inquiry, creativity and innovativeness are some of the natural endowments bestowed upon human beings, which are the keys to transformation of life. These factors, when manifested in the form of research, open new frontiers of knowledge, which is instrumental for all forms of development. Perhaps, this is the reason for which research is recognized as one of the core functions of the universities/institutions of higher learning and the universities have been rendering this responsibility with utmost diligence.

WATER CAN CHANGE FARMERS’ LIFE: A CASE FROM MAHARASHTRA

Dec-Jan,2018, Vol - 5/24, Page - 6955/6959

 Assured water is one of the important inputs for good harvest which is sine qua non for Indian farmers and if water is assured then not only they will sustain but country can prosper, as we all know Gandhiji long ago mentioned, “India does not live in its towns but in its villages” (mkgandhi.org/gandhi on villages).In view of this, we have to focus on development of farmers as they have been providing us food by doing hard labour in all the seasons.Keeping in mind of these, inAhmednagar district of Maharashtra at Bahirwadi village ofAhmednagarblock by constructing awatershedin2001, many farmers as well as 400 acres of agricultural land have been benefitted. Of course rainfall (normal in the area is 500 millimetres) should be normal. Keeping in mind of this, a study was conducted in January 2018 about the crops grown, its production, farmers’ individual family income etc., and for this few farmers were contacted and data were collected from them.
Keywords: agriculture, crops, farmers and income.

JAYANTI DALAL’S THE DARKNESS DESCENDS (JAGMOHANE SHU JOVU?): A DISTRESS OF BLINDNESS AND COMPROMISING THE SELF

Dec-Jan,2018, Vol - 5/24, Page - 6971/6975

 Jayanti Dalal was an eminent playwright, critic and prose writer of Gujarati literature. His sense of employing experiments with form and techniques made him somewhat distinct writer. All his literary works are thought-provoking manifesting unique characteristics through analysis of human perspective. The story The Darkness Descends (Jagmohane Shu Jovu?) focuses on the feelings of Jagmohan, the hero of the story who loses his eyesight.  The writer seems to reveal the truth that one should live with rational honesty. He aims at understating the human mind. The writer constructs a story through psychological truth, which doesn’t seem mere a fancy tale. The writer has conducted an experiment of a ‘story within story’ by using comparable Japanese story. The writer applies here his sense of experimentation with a view to comparing and analyzing the self with the others.
Keywords:  psychological truth, human perspective, transformation, happiness, distress, life-spirit

CO-OPERATIVE LEARNING – NEED OF THE HOUR

Dec-Jan,2018, Vol - 5/24, Page - 7042/7052

 This article presents an overview of co-operative learning, an instructional technique developed to enhance academic achievement through social and inter-personal skill development. Co-operative learning plays a paramount role in education, as it is one of the most widespread and fruitful areas of research and theory. Over the past several decades, it has attracted growing interest due to the vast amount of research conducted in education context as well as in social and clinical settings. The central tenet of co-operative learning is that through interaction and dialogue with others around a topic of study, student’s achievement increases, attitude towards learning improves and students learn and retain more information than through other more intra-personal, instructional methodologies (i.e. teacher directed/lecture style formats). Research points to all of these positive effects as well as improved inter-group, inter-ethnic and gender co-operation as well as increased self-esteem and confidence for all student population.

PRENATAL EXPOSURE TO AIR POLLUTANTS AFFECTS POSTNATAL DEVELOPMENT AND BEHAVIOR IN MICE

Dec-Jan,2018, Vol - 5/24, Page - 7085/7092

 Recent studies suggest that air pollution may affect reproductive outcome. This study in mice aimed to investigate whether exposure to various gases released by air pollution would affect gestation, postnatal development, activity, learning and memory, and biomarkers of trans-placental toxicity. In utero exposure decreased weight gain during lactation. Cognitive function and levels of biomarkers of exposure were generally similar in exposed and control offspring. The chemical composition of the gases and differences in exposure methods may play a significant role on the biological effects observed in this compared to other studies.

IMPORTANCE OF INTEGRATION OF PEDAGOGY AND TECHNOLOGY IN TEACHING SCIENCE

Dec-Jan,2018, Vol - 5/24, Page - 7123/7134

 This paper addresses the integration of pedagogy and technology in science teaching. Science teaching is such a complex, dynamic profession that it is difficult for a teacher to stay up-to-date. For a teacher to grow professionally and become better as a teacher of science, a special, continuous effort is required (Showalter, 1984, p. 21).  To better prepare students for the science and technology of the 21st century, the current science education reforms ask science teachers to integrate technology and inquiry-based teaching into their instruction (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 1993; National Research Council [NRC], 1996, 2000). Good teaching “begins with an act of reason, continues with a process of reasoning, culminates in performances of imparting, eliciting, involving, or enticing, and is then thought about some more until the process begins again” (Shulman, 1987, p. 13). Thus, to make effective pedagogical decisions about what to teach and how to teach it, teachers should develop both their PCK and pedagogical reasoning skills .In recent years, many researchers in the field of educational technology have been focused on the role of teacher knowledge on technology integration (Hughes, 2005; Koehler & Mishra, 2005, 2008; Mishra & Koehler, 2006; Niess, 2005). This paper discuss the role of science education in 21st Century, the aim of science education ,purpose of science education ,changing trends in science education, meeting the changing needs in science education, role of ICT in transforming teaching and learning, the link between ICT and pedagogy  .At the conclusion it states that though integration of technology and pedagogy is essential for better science teaching but a balance between pedagogy and technology is required to avail the greatest benefit.

TEACHER DEVELOPMENT: TOWARDS EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP IN 21ST CENTURY

Dec-Jan,2018, Vol - 5/24, Page - 7135/7142

 Teacher development has emerged over the last decade as a recognised area of study. Teacher development means, in terms of teachers’ own understandings of how they go on learning and becoming better at what they are doing. Teacher development is a process, not an event. It involves change over time and is achieved in stages. The stages are related to teachers’ experience gained in instructional and management practices over their career. Teachers must understand what it is to be an effective 21st century teacher with the abilities to develop the necessary skills. Effective educational leadership helps to make a difference in improving learning. Leadership is for everyone and as a result everyone is empowered to learn. Teachers are empowered to inquire into their practice to solve learning and teaching problems. As educational leaders, classroom teachers, students and parents will agree, 21st century teaching carries with a complicated mix of challenges and opportunities. Challenges include the issues of teacher turnover, accountability, changing student populations and student expectations, increasing budget pressures, and intense demand to build students’ 21st century skills. Thus, the present paper attempts to analyse Teacher development: Towards educational leadership in 21st century.
Keywords: Teacher development, Educational leadership, Teachers.
