Research Interest

Topic: IMPACT OF CHILD LABOUR ON THE HEALTH OF THE CHILD

Description:

Child labour is a global issue which is often associated with poverty, denial of childhood experiences and inadequate educational opportunities. Children get involved in some kinds of work which are regarded as child labour while some other types are not. The difference is in its effect on the health and education of the children involved. The study examined the impact of child labour on the physical and mental health of the child. It was discovered that a child labourer suffers from adverse health conditions which results from malnutrition and hazardous nature of the work.  It therefore recommends that parents should be enlightened on the consequences of child labour on the health of the child.

EFFECTIVENESS OF MONTESSORI BASED LITERACY APPROACH ON READING READINESS OF PRE –PRIMARY SCHOOLS PUPILS IN LAGOS STATE, NIGERIA

Research Details

Introduction: The Montessori approach to learning numeracy at early years is a great departure from this traditional approach that is abstract in nature. The approach is rooted in Maria Montessori’s belief, that children are born with a particular kind of mind, one that is naturally inclined towards order -’the mathematical –mind’ . Some of the objects and materials used to support learning are: golden beads, sand paper, the number rods and so on.  In introducing numerals, it focuses only on the symbols themselves using the Sandpaper Numerals: cut-out sandpaper numerals from zero to nine mounted on painted wooden boards.  

Aims and Objectives: The study was aimed at comparing the use of Traditional approach and Montessori Method in teaching numeracy in early years in North Senatorial District of Delta State.

Methodology:  The research design used in this study is pre-test post-test non-equivalent quasi-experimental design method. The research design was adopted as it is not feasible to randomize the participant for this study. It involves two experimental groups: - Montessori and Traditional approaches, and Control group.

Expected Results: The study had shown that the use of Montessori Method of teaching at the pre-primary school level provides the pupils with a child centred teaching process which focuses on their needs and their developmental stage. The pupils are able to interact with the hands-on instructional materials enable sensory and tactile stimulus multisensory stimulation facilitating easy retrieval, schema construction and memory consolidation
