Departmentalization in Elementary Schools: Contradictions Teachers Confront

Research article of American Journal of Educational Research and Reviews Departmentalization in Elementary Schools: Contradictions Teachers Confront Richard L. Allington University of Tennessee. This paper presents analyses of observational and interview data gathered in a study of exemplary fourth-grade teachers from five states. The central issue explored is the relative merits of self-contained and departmentalized models of instruction. We found no achievement differences in the classrooms by organizational pattern, but differences in the instruction offered in these two models were identified, and mixed views of the relative advantages of either organization plan were expressed by the participants. A key tension was whether these organizational plans are intended to primarily benefit teachers or students. However, the complexities of the cost/benefit concerns are the findings that this study highlights. Keywords: Contradictions Teachers Confront; Departmentalization ...

The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of teacher-students’ interaction on motivation to learn mathematics among high school students. The study was guided by Keller ARCS model of motivation. Descriptive research design was employed in the study. The target population was all 8357 Form Four students from 113 public high schools in Laikipia County. Simple random sampling was used to select sample schools, sample classes and respondents. The sample consisted of 392 mathematics students who participated in this study. A self-administered questionnaire was used in data collection. Cronbach’s alpha was used in estimating the reliability coefficients of research instruments which were acceptable and above 0.7. Data was analyzed using simple regression analysis.The finding showed that teacher-students’ interaction has a significant influence on motivation to learn mathematics. The study concludes that in order to improve effectiveness of teaching and learning, teachers need to use the relevant classroom interaction practices wisely so as to guide and monitor students in the learning process for better motivation so as to enhance acquisition of knowledge.

Integration through friendships in school classes – A study of pupils with a migrant background in school friendship networks at primary and secondary schools in Germany

Research article of American Journal of Educational Research and Reviews Integration through friendships in school classes - A study of pupils with a migrant background in school friendship networks at primary and secondary schools in Germany Miriam Kuckuck, Claudia Henrichwark Bergische Universität Wuppertal, Fachhochschule Südwestfalen This paper deals with the integration of migrant children in informal communication networks in primary and secondary schools in Germany. The basic assumption is that these networks can serve as an indicator for the networking and embedding that take place within the class community and therefore can be used to investigate the integration of pupils with a migrant background. The initial results of our network analytical study reveal that pupils with a migrant background are well integrated into class networks. The study discloses that the migrant background does not serve as a conclusive characteristic of the pattern of class networks. The pupils are more or less networked with each other regardless of their migrant background, though it did emerge that children and adolescents born abroad, in particular, are far more likely to have outgoing relationships that remain unreciprocated. Remarkable is, that results from primary school correspond with data from secondary school.

The Use of ICT Resources for Teaching Social Studies: Does the Availability of ICT Resources Matter?

Research article of American Journal of Educational Research and Reviews The Use of ICT Resources for Teaching Social Studies: Does the Availability of ICT Resources Matter? Valentina Arkorful (PhD)1, Kwaku Anhwere Barfi (PhD Student)1, Frank Afful Enchill2 1University of Cape Coast, Cape Coast, Ghana 2Obrachire Senior High/Technical School, Awutu Senya, Ghana The paper explored the availability of information and communication technology (ICT) resources and the extent to which these resources influence the use of ICT in teaching Social Studies. The study setting was in the Awutu Senya district of Ghana. A descriptive survey design and quantitative approach were adopted for the study. From a target population of fifty-seven (57), 46 were sampled from which 39 participated in the survey. Means and standard regression were employed for the investigation. The testing of hypothesis was made possible through the use of structured equation modelling. The study concluded that ICT resources were inadequate for teaching Social Studies and that the use of ICT resources in teaching Social Studies in the district was low. The reason was evident based on the low level of ICT resources in the district. The study also concluded that there was a positive significant relationship between availability of ICT resources and its use in the teaching of Social Studies.
