LEADERSHIP PREFERENCE AMONG THE SCHOOL TEACHERS WITH RESPECT TO SELECTED VARIABLES

Abstract
In the rapidly changing, complex and dynamic environment within which we operate, leaders are critical to organisational success. To understand an individual’s leadership strengths and development we need to look at their leadership preference. Leadership preference looks at an individual’s personality and motivation. This preference to ‘hold the mirror up allows the teachers to understand how the head teachers or principals and authorities perform as a leader in their respective current role. It also predicts how they will be comfortable in future roles as best leader. It’s not about changing their nature. In fact most of the preferences are set by time and any one can become the best leader in the face of extreme circumstances by extreme circumstances. This research work studies whether the teachers’ leadership preference is dominant in a democratic or an autocratic style. This present research work was carried out by Normative Survey Method. 117 samples were drawn by the investigator under ‘simple random sampling technique. The male teachers consist of 56 and the female, of 61. The data was collected by the investigator from two different cadres / levels of teachers from secondary and higher secondary schools at Salem, Tamilnadu, India. The result revealed that nearly 80% of the teachers prefer the democratic leadership style. 10 % of the teachers prefer autocratic leadership style and remaining 10 % of the teachers do not prefer any style towards their leadership pattern or else school teachers prefer a neutral position out of the two leadership preferences.

A STUDY OF INTERNET USAGE AMONG LIBRARY PROFESSIONALS

Abstract

The development of the Internet during the past four decades had a profound impact on society in general, and on the field of library and information science in particular. This technology has involved processes, functions, services, media and information resources: the library as a whole. Its use has changed the fundamental roles, paradigms, and organizational culture of libraries and librarians. Today, library professionals are using it to provide library and information services to library clients. It is being used to provide access to electronic library collections, electronic reference services, electronic document delivery, and communicate with library users. Hundreds of discussion groups on various topics related to library and information work, electronic journals, and Web sites are also available on the Internet. Therefore, library professionals also have an opportunity to use the Internet for professional development and upgrading their skills.

STUDY OF SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE AND ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT OF THE PROFESSIONAL COLLEGE STUDENTS

Abstract

Education and social intelligence are interrelated since education is not a simple process of importing information, but it focuses on the development of personal and social qualities. Without the social and personal qualities man is incomplete. A truly educated person identifies himself as part of the society in which he lives, and makes good relations with others. Therefore, the nurturing process of social intelligence leads the academic success of the individuals. The study was carried out by Normative Survey Method under simple random sampling technique. The samples are drawn from the B,.Ed., Nursing and Medical Colleges located at Salem and Namakkal Districts of Tamilnadu, India. The sample consists of 377 professional college students studying final year course. Of them 152 were male and the rest 225were female. The results reveal that, the social intelligence of the college students are in the place of ‘average’ and their academic achievement is high. The ‘social leadership’ is higher and ‘social competency’ is lower. The college students differ in academic achievement and gender do not play any role in mean difference of their academic achievement.

LOCUS OF CONTROL AND SELECTED CATEGORICAL VARIABLES ON ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT IN ZOOLOGY OF HIGHER SECONDARY STUDENTS

Abstract

This study emphasizes the Locus of Control in school students and their progress in Academic Achievement in Zoology. The Locus of Control has a significant role on students’ lives, as their decisions and choices are related to their progress. Internal or external locus of control plays an important role for students to sustain the effectiveness and usefulness of learning performance. The knowledge and experience gained by the students by means of learning the content and the role of demographic factors is vital for increasing student’s performance. In this perspective, this study was carried out by Normative Survey Method. The samples were drawn from Salem Educational District under simple random sampling technique. The sample consists of 324 higher secondary studying students in the second year. Of them 117 were male and the rest 207 were female. The results reveal that the higher secondary students are high in overall locus of control and internal locus of control and above average in ‘academic achievement in zoology. They do not differ in ‘overall locus of control, internal and external locus of control and academic achievement in zoology’ with respect to gender and locality of the school. The students are possessing high relationship between the internal LOC and AAZ.

Comparative Analysis on Physical Fitness Variables of Spin Bowlers and Fast Bowlers in Cricket

Abstract
The purpose of the present study was to compare the Physical Fitness variables of spin bowlers and Fast bowlers in cricket. The study was administered on 40 Cricket players in the age group 16-25 years of participated in the 2012 Buck Cricket Tournament was conducted by YMCA College of physical education, Chennai. The Physical Fitness variable which was used in this study is Flexibility, Agility, Speed, and Balance. To find out the significance difference t-test was used. The level of significance was chosen as 0.05 levels. Result of this study reveals that there was no significant difference exit between the Flexibility (0.362) and significant difference between the Agility (2.041), Speed (2.984) and Balance (2.918) of spin bowlers and Fast bowlers in cricket as the tabulated ‘t’ (2.021).

METACOGNITIVE STRATEGIES FOR THE ENHANCEMENT OF MATHEMATICAL PROBLEM-SOLVING

Abstract

            The purpose of this paper is to identify the metacognitive strategies for the enhancement of mathematical problem solving. This paper portrays the results by historical method. The primary purpose of the enhancement of mathematical problem solving instruction is not to equip students with a collection of skills and processes, but rather to enable them to think for themselves. The value of skills and processes instruction should be judged by the extent to which the skills and processes actually enhance flexible, independent thinking. Students’ abilities to think flexibly can be developed and enhanced by teachers modeling their own thinking processes, giving students opportunities to solve the problem, and helping students become aware of their own thought processes as they solve mathematical problems. This process of analyzing our own thought processes is called metacognition and includes thinking about how we are approaching a problem, the strategies we choose to use to find a solution, and the questions we ask ourselves about the problem are all part of metacognition.
