      First page: 117
      Abstract: This study investigated the influence of parental input and intelligent quotient on secondary school students’ achievement in Biology. The study was guided by four research questions and four hypotheses. This study employed a survey research design. A sample of 500 students was used for the study using the stratified sampling and simple random technique. The instrument that was employed in this study is intelligent quotient test and parental input questionnaire, which were adequately validated. The regression method of data analysis was employed. The study revealed that there was a significant relationship between intelligence quotient, parental input and academic achievement of senior secondary school students in Biology. It was recommended that Parents should spend more time to check their children’s books to see what they are doing in schools and that Parents should be in contact with teachers who on daily basis are in position to guide the children.

  • Classroom Management Self-Efficacy of Pre-Service Teachers

    • Authors: Tammie T. Patterson, Dr. Aarek Farmer
      First page: 134
      Abstract: This quantitative, quasi-experimental design study examined 75 pre-service teachers’ perceptions of their own self-efficacy regarding classroom management. Data was collected at three different intervals throughout the student teaching experience, which was also accompanied by a training seminar focusing on classroom organization and management (Classroom Organization and Management Program). Results showed that pre-service teachers exhibited significantly higher perceptions of self-efficacy at different intervals throughout their student teaching. Data from this study provides Educator Preparation Programs (EPPs) with further data, which will allow them to create program curricula and strategies to better prepare pre-service teachers to become successful and confident classroom teachers.

  • Promoting Goal Setting: An Experimental Study of Positive Psychology in an
           EFL Context

    • Authors: Samieh Noori, Mehry Haddad Narafshan
      First page: 144
      Abstract: The present quasi-experimental study addresses the impact of a Character Strength Based Positive Psychology Intervention (CSBPPI) on Goal Setting (GS) of TEFL university students in Iran. In so doing, the study utilized an experimental design with 18 participants in the control group and 18 participants in the experimental group which totalled 7 male and 29 female students. The pretest showed that the participants of the two groups were homogenous with regard to their proficiency level as well as their goal setting. Data was collected over five months using Erickson et al. (2015) goal setting questionnaire before and after an MA course. The results of the post-test revealed that PP has a positive and significant impact on learners’ goal setting. The findings from this research suggest positive paths from positive psychology to understanding, managing and successfully setting the goals.

  • Diversity in Children’s Literature

    • Authors: Marie A. Leahy, Bridget C. Foley
      First page: 172
      Abstract: Children’s literature is profoundly influential in the lives of students and is widespread throughout schools, libraries, and homes. However, the field of children’s literature lacks diversity across several domains, particularly race, gender, and ability. Educators must be knowledgeable on how to use diverse children’s literature as a tool to teach about diversity, as they strive to foster inclusive classroom environments. Teachers must also design their classroom libraries with intense care so as to provide a wide-ranging selection of books to meet the needs of children’s interests and reading levels. Books are a powerful tool for development, so teachers must make conscious decisions about the materials they provide to young readers. All children deserve exposure to a wide range of books, which include characters who are both similar and different from themselves. Educators have a responsibility to expose students to diversity through a well-written selection of multifaceted children’s literature.

  • The Journeys of the Heart of the Two Women in A Passage to India

    • Authors: Mingjing Su
      First page: 184
      Abstract: A Passage to India is the magnum opus of E. M. Forster—a famous English novelist in the first half of 20th century. This essay does a comparative study about the different changing courses in the two heroines’ mind in India. Adela, one of them, tends to spiritualism from traditional English rationalism (materialism or literalism). While the other, Mrs. Moore, goes roughly from emotionalism to rationalism. However, there are two diverse outcomes: Adela builds her new mental scene finally, but Mrs. Moore fails to remodel herself after the collapse of her perceptual world. And the paper makes a deep analysis on the reason giving rise to such results. It is found, there are two main reasons. One is the different importance of the original values in their soul. The other one is the disparate conflict resolution styles when great changes happen in their inner heart.

  • Vietnamese Double Negative

    • Authors: BUI KIM LAN
      First page: 219
      Abstract: Affirmation and negation are the most basic forms of language in each language. Many things can be expressed either in affirmative or in negative way. In the Vietnamese language system, using negative expressions is more abundant than using affirmative ones. Because of this, the use of negatives in spoken Vietnamese is relatively high. Double negative is a common language phenomenon in Vietnamese spoken language, but there is not much research about double negative. The following is a preliminary understanding of the grammar and semantics, as well as a study of double negative forms in Vietnamese.
