  • ABSTRACT

    Despite the Yoruba being taught and learnt as First Language (L1) in senior secondary schools in Oyo State, some of the curriculum topics are perceived as difficult. This study therefore, examined the difficulty levels of topics in the senior secondary school Yoruba curriculum as perceived by the students in Akinyele Local Government Area (LGA) of Oyo State. The study adopted a cross-sectional type of the descriptive research survey involving two hundred and ten (210) respondents randomly selected from seven out of the thirty-five (35) senior secondary schools in the LGA. A three-section questionnaire personally developed by the researchers was used to collect data, while the data collected were analysed using mean and standard deviation. Three research questions were raised and answered. The findings of the study revealed that out of the twenty-two (22) Culture topics, twelve (12) were perceived as not difficult, while others were perceived to be difficult. Similarly, twelve (12) out of the twenty (20) Language topics were perceived as not difficult, while others (eight topics) were perceived as difficult. Also, five (5) Literature topics were perceived as not difficult and difficult respectively. The study concluded that 23 and 29 out of the 42 curriculum topics were perceived as difficult and not difficult respectively, while none of the topics was perceived as very difficult by the students. Based on the findings of this study, it thus recommended that teachers should adopt appropriate teaching methods and strategies to consolidate on perceived not difficult topics and to simplify the difficult ones.

  • ABSTRACT

    There is growing concern over the high rate of organizational citizenship behaviours (OCBs) among health workers in Nigeria. However, less research attention has devoted to how health workers job insecurity (JI), psychological contract breach (PCB) and job crafting (JC) connect with OCBs, especially among Health workers in Nigeria. Against this background this study investigates the relationship between JI, PCB, JC and OCBs among health workers in Edo State, Nigeria. A cross-sectional survey design was adopted in this study. Using a multistage sampling technique. 123 health workers (22 males; 101 females whose age ranged from 22 to 57 (M =25.40; SD=3.25) were sampled in the study. The results indicated that JI, PCB and JC were significantly related with increased level of OCBs, such that JI may not be the major motivation of health workers to exhibited OCBs irrespective of the situation and environment they find themselves. Also, health workers who perceived PCB tend to show higher tendency/engaging of OCBs. Similarly, health workers who scores high on JC tend to exhibit high OCBs. Finally, the result indicated male health workers reported significantly higher tendency to OCBs than female health worker, such that male and female health workers have different level of health workers behaviour that is discretionary, and directly recognized by the formal behaviour and it will have effect on their functioning mental ability. The study concluded that JI, PCB and JC are connected with OCBs among health workers and level at which males and females’ health workers engaged OCBs also differ. The practical and theoretical implications of the study were discussed.

  • ABSTRACT

    Suicide ideation is a concept that is trending among adolescents and youths in tertiary institution and the rate at which suicidal ideation occurs among undergraduates in Nigeria is really worrisome to parents, school authorities, governmental and non-governmental organizations. Undergraduates are vulnerable to the risk of suicidal ideation in schools due to factors which include inability to cope with conflicts and challenges, depression, anxiety, sexual harassment, substance abuse, financial problems, hostility, anger among others. The paper therefore highlights the concept of suicidal ideation, types of suicidal ideation, warning signs of suicidal ideation, factors responsible for suicidal ideation, and theories of suicidal ideation. The paper concluded by suggesting that government and other education stakeholders should help by investing in the training and retraining of guidance counsellors in tackling the problem of suicidal ideation. Parents should play their roles in the upbringing of their children and should consult a counsellor when they notice symptoms and problems of suicidal ideation in their children. Seminars and workshops should be organized to sensitize undergraduate students on how to manage suicidal ideation when it starts to emanate and its prevention procedures.

This study was guided by three objectives, three research questions and two null hypotheses. The research design was a survey and a total of 20 students were selected randomly from five schools within the study area. The instrument used to collect the data was self – structured electronic questionnaire titled: The Cognitive and Psychosocial Effect of Carryover Courses on Students Questionnaire (TCAPEQ). Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) was used to analyze the mean scores of the   research questions while the hypotheses were tested using t-test. All the hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. The findings showed that poor rapport between lecturers and students was responsible for failing some courses by selected students. In addition, clashes in the examination timetable   further compounded to the problem. And lastly it was revealed from this research that carryovers have negatively affected some students’ psyche and caused depression in them. Results from the null hypotheses revealed   that there was no significant difference in the effect of carryovers between male and female university students and there was no significant difference in the effects of carryovers between students in the Faculty of Science and   students in the Faculty of Education.

  • ABSTRACT

    In this age of technological advancement, language teachers can provide effective classroom teaching via the Web. This shift in pedagogical medium is forcing academic institutions to rethink how course contents are delivered. The overarching purpose of this research was to determine whether the face-to-face or the online teaching method would prove more effective over the other. The study adopted the correlational research design to compare the performance of 200 level students of English Education of Kogi State University, Anyigba. The instrument for data collection was students’ examination grades.  The purposive sampling technique was adopted to sample all the 120 (43 males and 77 females) 200 level students of English Education in the 2019/2020 academic session. 55 participants constituted the F2F group while 65 participants constituted the online group.  The study adopted the t-test statistics to test the significant difference in students’ performance. The finding of the study showed that there is a significant difference in the performance of the students who were taught face-to-face and those taught online in favour of the face-to-face learners. The study also revealed that the females performed significantly higher than the males in both face-to-face and online Instructions. Based on these findings, the study recommends, among others, that there should be a blend of online and face-to-face instructions to enable language learners’ benefit maximally from new technologies as well as one-on-one interaction with the teacher which is very sacrosanct in reinforcing language learning instead of resorting to only one medium.
