  • Development of Learning Tools based on Cultural and Character Education in
           Improving Discipline in Elementary School Research Article

    • Authors: Agus Wardhono; Siti Munafi'ah, Djoko Apriono, Usep Supriatna
      Abstract: The development of this learning tool is based on the fact that the implementation of cultural education and character education is still lacking. This is due to the lack of writing and clarity of implementation steps on cultural education and character education in learning tools. The development of learning tools based on cultural education and character education is expected to help teachers and students implement cultural education and character education easily. The purpose of this research and development is to determine the quality of the learning tools developed in terms of validity, practicality, and effectiveness. The research method used by researchers is Research and Development (R&D), and the model developed is ADDIE. The technique of implementing this development research through the stages of analyze, design, development, implementation and evaluation. Data collection techniques in this study used interviews, observations, validity questionnaires, practicality questionnaires, and affective assessment results before and after the study. Data analysis techniques in this study use quantitative and qualitative data analysis techniques. The result of this development research is that the validity of the expert validator of the learning device design obtained a score of 93.18. The validity of the material expert validator obtained a score of 100. The practicality of the practitioner obtained a score of 96.66. The effectiveness of the results of the affective assessment shows the results of MK (culture). Thus, based on the results of validity, practicality, and effectiveness, it can be concluded that the validity and practice of this learning tool in the category is very valid or can be used without revision. And the effectiveness of this learning tool in this category is very effective.

  • The Portrayal of Gender in Kofi Nyaku’s Amedzro Etɔ̃lia: A
           Feminist Approach

    • Authors: Judith Candace Ahlijah; Benjamin Kubi
      Abstract: Literature is usually reflective of the ideologies and general worldviews of the societies from which it originates. Among the critical issues that are raised in many literary works are issues pertaining to gender and power relations. Some literary works originating from the African context have served as fertile grounds for gender stereotyping and its attendant asymmetric power distribution. In spite of the abundance of such literary works, those written in colonial languages tend to receive more scholarly attention than those written in indigenous African languages. The present study is a feminist criticism of a masterpiece originating from the Ewe culture of Ghana and Togo and written in Ewe, a Kwa language spoken in parts of West Africa. The study explores the author’s portrayal of gender and the extent to which his work reproduces asymmetric power relations based on gender. The analysis shows that the author reproduces gender stereotypes through the foregrounding of male characters, asymmetric distribution of wealth, gendered assignment of agency, and gendered assignment of occupations.

  • Online Leadership: Experiences of Student Body Organization Officers

    • Authors: Ritchel V. Hermoso; Mary Joy C. Hernando, Rommel T. Gimarangan, Suzette V. Tobes, Jester H. Alob, Charlene Geonzon Geonzon
      Abstract: This study explores the online leadership experiences of fourth-year male and female student body organization officers at the University of Cebu-Main Campus during the COVID-19 pandemic. Informants were purposefully selected using a qualitative phenomenological research design. Semi-structured open-ended interviews were conducted for data collection, employing Braun and Clarke's thematic analysis (2006). Key informants' responses identified seven emergent themes under three overarching themes that addressed subproblems. The participants' experiences as student leaders in the online setup revealed two emergent themes: distress and opportunity. Difficulties faced included poor communication, external issues, time management, and emotional distress, classified into four emergent themes. Coping mechanisms centered around purpose as a single emergent theme. The findings and recommendations from the study aim to address challenges encountered by student officers in the online setting.

  • Utopian and Dystopian Traits in Lois Lowry’s The Giver

    • Authors: Layla Abdeen; Ghaida' Adel "Khaznah Katbi"
      Abstract: Some critics are of the opinion that when a rigid system of punctuality, precision, and accuracy is used in a particular society; a version of perfection may be attained in that society. In spite of these characteristics, the objective of this article is to illustrate how a meticulous reading of contrary images in a literary work as Lois Lowry’s The Giver is required to attain a comprehensive view about that society under discussion. Both facets of the same story are to be considered to reach a better understanding of the depicted plot. The purpose of this article is, therefore, to highlight not only the positive or utopian traits, which seem to be dominant in the society of The Giver; but also the negative or dystopian ones, which are somewhat recessive. The method in which this is done is by adopting a careful reading of the primary textual evidence, The Giver, along with the analysis of plentiful useful and relevant secondary sources that tend to shed light on the eventual and profound overall image of that society. The findings of the article mainly stress the belief that one is not to hastily “judge a book by its cover”; as truth is inferred in the details, and that only after he / she reconsiders all the motives, causes, effects, and motifs that a sound understanding of The Giver is finally attained. Since literature is at times a depiction of life, the importance of this article lies in the fact that a good reader of literary works, does not only recognize “the white” or “the black”; but also “the gray” as a lot of “the gray” does exist in any society with varied degrees.

    • Authors: Enayatollah Yazdani
      Abstract: China's increasing role in the Middle East has gained importance. Beijing has played an influential role in mediating disputes and fostering negotiation among the region’s states. In late 2022 and the beginning of 2023, the Middle East region experienced some changes and developments; among them, two were most remarkable: The December 2022 China-Arabs summit and its final statement and the development in Iran-Saudi relations mediated by China in March 2023. Both of these changes have influenced Iran-China relations. This paper addresses how these changes affected the relations between Iran and China. It explores Iranians’ assessment of both changes and developments.

  • Assessing the Efficiency of Wheat Producers in Dihdadi District

    • Authors: Hafizullah Radmand; Sayed Mahbobullah Akbai, Jamaluddin Akbari, Habibullah Rezaei
      Abstract: Given the strategic importance of wheat production for the country's food security, this study aimed to analyze the efficiency of wheat producers in the Dihdadi district of Balkh province, Afghanistan, using the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) approach. The required data were classified using a random sampling method, and 295 questionnaires were collected in 2022. The results show that the average technical, allocative, economic, pure technical (management), and scale efficiencies are 0.858, 0.632, 0.541, 0.964, and 0.893, respectively. Based on these results, increasing the efficiency of wheat producers in this district can improve technical, allocative, economic, management, and scale efficiencies by 14.2%, 36.8%, 45.9%, 3.6%, and 43.6%, respectively. 16.95% of wheat producers operate with decreasing returns relative to the scale, 72.2% use with increasing returns relative to the scale, and only 10.85% operate at the optimal scale (constant returns to scale). Therefore, increasing the production scale is suggested to enhance rational efficiency. Recommendations, management, and policy contexts related to improving the efficiency of wheat producers can contribute to local economic and social conditions.
