  • A Community Education Curriculum Using Improvisational Theatre Techniques
           for Informal Dementia Caregivers

    • Authors: Britteny Howell, Erik Dahl, Arianna Piech, Ann Farris
      Abstract: This paper describes a novel community education curriculum created for family dementia caregivers using improvisational theatre techniques. The goal of the 6-week program is to improve communication skills and social caregiving situations that can increase informal caregivers’ mood and reduce feelings of caregiver burden. We provide a framework for 6 weekly sessions that focus on interpersonal communication and creating meaningful connections with care recipients in a fun and playful environment. Designed by professional improvisers, a gerontology researcher, and a dementia education specialist, this curriculum can be tailored for use in other community settings. Preliminary research on such programs demonstrates that improv has the ability to reduce caregiver burden and depression.

  • The Effectiveness of the Participatory Reading Strategy in Teaching
           Language Skills to Develop Reading Comprehension Skills

    • Authors: Ahmad Abdullah Asiri
      Abstract: The study aimed to reveal the impact of the participatory reading strategy in developing reading comprehension. In addition to identifying the statistically significant differences in reading comprehension skills due to the gender variable, and the interaction between the participatory reading strategy and gender. In order to accomplish the objectives of the study, a reading comprehension exam was created that included seven skills with (30) items. In order to accomplish the objectives of the study, a reading comprehension exam was created that included seven skills with (30) items. 48 male and female pupils were selected from ten schools connected to the Abha region to participate in the study. The participants in the study were split randomly into two groups: the control group, which studied using the usual approach, consisted of 24 male and female students; the experimental group, which studied using the participatory reading strategy, consisted of 24 male and female students. According to the study findings, the experimental group members who studied using the participatory reading technique had statistically significant differences in their reading comprehension skills that might be attributable to the teaching strategy. The findings also revealed that there were no statistically significant variations in reading comprehension skills attributable to the gender variable or to the interaction between the participatory reading technique and gender.

  • Tracking Behavioural Interaction Changes in Children with ASD

    • Authors: majed Aldalham
      First page: 01
      Abstract: This study's objective is to determine whether or not exposure to a certain setting might improve a child's ability to engage in social contact when they have autism spectrum disorder (ASD). In this study, an approach that may be described as quasi-experimental was used to make a comparison between a group that received special education and a group that attended public school. The study came to the unexpected conclusion that pupils' results improved when they attended public schools. In spite of the fact that the difference is not nearly as significant as those of others, it is nevertheless sufficient to generate a distinct outcome. This result may have been brought about by any one of a number of distinct circumstances or factors.

      Pages: 07 - 20
      Abstract: Teachers are in need to obtain high levels of different skills among which were management skills, which are considered essential skills that manage teachers to perform their teaching duties effectively. The study aimed to define vocational education teachers' acquisition of workshop management skills in Jordan. The study sample consisted of (58) vocational education teachers selected randomly. To achieve the objectives of the study, a questionnaire was employed. The results showed that the level of vocational education teachers' acquisition of workshop management skills was moderate. The study revealed statistically significant differences in vocational education teachers' acquisition of workshop management skills in light of educational level, in favor of higher education, and in light of experience, in favor of teachers with more than 10 years of experience, while no statistically significant difference was found in light of gender. In light of the results, the study recommends to include activities addressing the required workshop management skills into vocational education pre-service and in-service training programs.

  • Bodhisattva’s Eyes

    • Authors: Shuoning Zhang
      First page: 21
      Abstract: As Parfit observes, the dichotomy between self-interest and morality causes the failure of moral actions in real life. One approach to resolve this conflict is Sidgwick’s impersonal ethics. This paper examines Sidgwick’s maxim of benevolence and outlines its underlying assumption: the accessibility of the universal point of view. Then, this paper reconstructs Vasubandhu’s no-self view in Abihidharmako'a and responds to two personalistic arguments, ultimately arguing that people can practice impersonal ethics if they overcome the illusion of self through Yog'car'’s meditation, as a metaphysical entity, and as a mental construct.

  • Muslim Women in Contemporary Visual Arts; The Veil as a Trope

    • Authors: Rawya Aljared
      First page: 31
      Abstract: The veil as a trope in contemporary art is used to serve multiple narratives that complicate how it is understood in modern days. These multiple narratives assist in freeing the veil from past accounts that associate it (the veil) with oppression and misogynies. This paper studies the multiple interpretations of the veil as oppressive, simulacra and decorative as well as a representation of identity in contemporary visual art by female artists, and focuses on artworks that use the veil as a central component of the art piece: Women of Allah, 1993-1997 by Shirin Neshat; the Converging Territory series, 2004by Lalla Essaydi and The Hijab series, 2001 by Bushra Almutawakel.   The complexity of the representation of the veil was scrutinized by Stewart Motha (2007) where he critically analyzed the views of the veil between feminism and secularism as its rooted on ideas of autonomy and heteronomy. The paper also studies notions of autonomy and heteronomy in feminist discourse to shed light on the challenging use of the veil to advocate for women’s rights in artwork. The paper uses Motha’s views as a lens through which to discuss Western feminism.
