Bonke A. Omoteso, Semudara A.  2012.  The Relationship between Teachers’ Effectiveness and Management of Classroom Misbehaviours in Secondary Schools. Abstract

The study investigated the nature of classroom misbehaviours among secondary school students in Ondo State, Nigeria. It also determined the effectiveness of the teachers and the strategies adopted by the teachers to manage classroom misbehaviours. Furthermore, it established the relationship between teachers’ effectiveness and man-agement of classroom misbehavior with a view to maintaining discipline in schools. The study adopted descrip-tive survey design. The population comprised the teachers and school administrators in Ondo State. The sample consisted of 420 teachers and 180 school administrators selected randomly from 10 secondary schools selected by stratified sampling technique using location of schools and ownerships of schools as strata. Two instruments namely “Questionnaire on Management of Classroom Misbehaviour” (QMCM) and “Teacher Effectiveness Scale” (TES) were used to elicit information from the students. QMCM was made up of three sections. Section A consisted of items on socio-demographic variables such as sex, location of schools and ownership of schools. Section B requested the teachers to indicate the types of misbehavior that take place in the classroom and their frequencies of occurrence. Section C comprises strategies used by teachers to manage classroom misbehaviours. TES was the ratings of teachers’ effectiveness as done by the school administrators. Results showed that the fol-lowing misbehaviours occurred frequently in the classrooms: talking while was teaching (75.4%) and fighting (90.9%). The strategies adopted by teachers included giving advice (90.5) and referring the students to the school counsellors (88.6%). The teachers were rated effective in attending classes punctually (81.3%) and in communicating clearly with the students (96.0%). Furthermore, there existed a significant relationship between teachers’ effectiveness and management of classroom misbehavior, r = 0.0525 which is significant at .05 level.

This study aimed at finding out and examining the forms of interaction among the rural and urban settlements in Ijesaland, Osun State in the forest region of southwestern Nigeria. The study revealed that interactions in the study area were influenced by factors such as distance, and availability of alternative centre outside the region. As economic interaction in the study area showed that people were more unwilling to travel to the service centres as distance increases from them, social interaction indicated a relatively low distance decay function suggesting that distance factor had little impact on social interactions among settlements in the study area. The observed
interrelationships among settlements of various hierarchies in Ijesaland were linked to historical ties that bind them. However, the observed patterns showed that settlements of the same hierarchy interacted more among themselves than with any other. With these results, it is hoped that the attentions of policy makers in Nigeria, as a whole, would be paid to the development of policies to address the specific needs of the urban and rural areas in the country. The study underscored that traditional ethnographic regions are often characterized by regional imbalance relating to Core-periphery Model of Freidman.

Samdi, LM, Ajayi JA, Oguche S, Ayanlade A.  2012.  Seasonal Variation of Malaria Parasite Density in Paediatric Population of North Eastern Nigeria. Global Journal of Health Science . 4(2):103-109. Abstract

Malaria is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in children and adults in the Sudano Sahel of Northeastern Nigeria with the highest prevalence of malaria in pregnancy of 64.5 in Nigeria recorded in this region. This study was carried out in 2003 and 2004 to provide parasitological baseline data for the development of Malaria Early Warning System (MEWS) for the surveillance of type I epidemic caused by meteorological conditions and to provide data for timing malaria key vector control measures such as Indoor Residual Spraying (IRS) for maximum effect. Clinical information about malaria cases were used in this study. In all 692 children aged 6 to 96 months were screened for Plasmodium infection and used for the analysis. The results showed that the majority of infected children (68.06%) were aged 12-60 months and their asexual parasite density (ap/ u1) was between 100-500 ap/u1 of the whole blood. The month of September recorded the highest Geometric Mean Asexual-Densities (GMPD) of 13,655 while the lowest parasite densities were observed at the peak of the dry season, especially during the months of March and April. Significance difference (p<0.05) was observed between the sexes in infection rate. It is obvious that male children have higher infection rate (about 67.5%), than while female children (32.5%) regardless of climate seasonality. Designing a malaria early warning system and providing baseline parasitological data for timing of spraying cycles for key malaria vector control measures such as Indoor Residual Spraying (IRS) should be encouraged to complement other effective malaria control strategies. Hence the need for this investigation.
