The article discusses creative teaching for public school teachers. It provides historical background on creativity research and highlights the barriers to creative teaching. The article emphasizes the relevant ways that teachers can encourage creativity in student work while supporting course objectives and standardized test preparation. The article explains how teachers can play a vital role in developing lesson plans, activities and class discussions that promote student growth in problem solving skills, develop original thinking and the expression of novel ideas.
This article focusses on the review of research studies done on the area of learning disabilities and the need to conduct more research studies in this area. Schoolchildren are seen to have different types of learning difficulties with regard to academics. Children with learning disability, who occupy the largest number receiving special education, are not recognized much in schools. It is mistaken for stupidity in pupils by teachers or parents who are not exposed to awareness of special needs of such children. The purpose of this paper is to review studies on: self-esteem, emotional maturity, innovative methods of instruction for children with learning disabilities; parents’ awareness regarding learning disabilities and teachers’ behaviour towards children with learning disabilities and find the gap so as to derive the implications. These studies explored problems of such children and the instructional strategies adopted for them. More researches have to be done in this area to meet the needs of these students who need special attention.
Universal design for transition (UDT) refers to an approach to instructional planning, delivery, and assessment that bridges the gap between teaching academic and functional/transition goals. It builds upon the principals of universal design for learning (UDL) assuring that instructional practices are designed to meet the needs of diverse learners through the use of multiple means of engagement, expression, and representation. UDT assures that instruction includes multiple transition domains, multiple transition assessment, multiple resources/perspectives and student self-determination to support academic achievement and the transition to adult life. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the use of a UDT approach to instructional design and delivery had the results predicted when used in a high school social studies class. A single subject multiple-treatment design was used to determine the impact of each instructional approach. Quantitative data was gathered through observation and survey of 6 students at the secondary-education level. The findings indicated that students with disabilities were more interested and engaged and had better academic achievement when a UDT approach was used compared to the other two approaches. Implications for UDT being an effective evidence-based approach to instruction and assessment, as well as future research on UDT are presented.
Of all the equalities man possesses, creative thinking has been the most important for his well being and advancement. Creativity means to make, to bring into being, to originate or to invent something. Scientific aptitude is considered to be a unique or unusual potential or ability of an individual to acquire general knowledge and skill in scientific fields. This era is witnessing a great importance of creativity and imagination in our every day lives. Development of science has conquered almost all spheres of life. The issue of developing creativity and scientific aptitude in school children is challenging to teachers, and the investigator is interested to find the correlation between creativity and scientific aptitude. Research on creativity has mainly focused on the contributions of terms of creativity and co relational studies of creativity with self concept, intelligence, personality and achievement. There are several aspects of creativity and scientific aptitude on which clear cut answers are yet to be found by sustained research. The study was designed to investigate the correlation between creativity and scientific aptitude in standard VIII students. The sample taken was 251 and random sampling technique was done on the basis of sex, nature of the school, locality of residence, locality of school, type of school, parental education and parental occupation. Creativity tool by Baquer Medhi (1985) and a self constructed tool for scientific aptitude were used. Collected data were analyzed using statistical techniques such as t-test, analysis of variance and Pearson’s product moment correlation. Correlation analysis revealed that there is no significant relation between creativity and scientific aptitude with respect to background variables. In this study the investigator draws the conclusion that students who are highly creative may not have scientific aptitude up to the mark. Students who are interested in science and thereby developing their skills and abilities may not always be creative in nature.
Locus of control (LOC) is related to many aspects of human behavior, yet relatively little is known about what factors in early childhood may dispose a child to develop an internal or external LOC orientation. Data from a British epidemiological, longitudinal, cohort study of 12,463 children and their mothers were used to identify, from a wide range of potential explanatory factors, those having the strongest independent effects on LOC orientation. Socioeconomic status, non-authoritarian parenting style & attitudes, and child activities were hypothesized as and found to be major contributory factors in the model. Though marginal gender differences were found in the antecedents of LOC development, the analyses for boys and girls were generally very similar.
