CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

 Background of the Study

          It is glaring that many teachers at one time or the other have to bring classroom discussion to a pause in other to handle problem behaviour of the pupils. However, not all forms of problem behaviour may so disrupt the classroom procedures.

There are many special problems of children such as: Juvenile delinquency, stammering, nail biting and thumb sucking, enuresis and truancy. These behaviour problems are important to teachers because they need to help the children who have them. For learning to occur in any of the children with behaviour problem, such problem must be dealt with. One of the behaviour problems which hampers learning is juvenile delinquency. If the children are allowed to live with the problem(s), they affect the children’s classroom work and can also grow into very serious problem in future.

The Effects of Vee-Mapping instructional Strategy On Students’ Attitude and Academic Achievements in Biology in Senior Secondary Schools

Background to the Study

Science Education is the bedrock of any nation’s development. The more scientifically literate populace a nation has, the stronger the nation will be. According to Abbas (2010), any nation with priority in science and technology education will, among other things, improve its economic growth substantially; hence reduce the impact of the menace due to global economic crisis. Science and technology provide the best brains, first class professionals and exemplary technocrats to transform Nigeria into a great country.

Science and technology have connected the world into what is now referred to as globalization which may be considered as a process embodying a transformation in the spatial organization of social relations and transactions assessed in terms of their intensity, velocity and impact (Gyuse and Adejoh, 2010).  In addition, Science education helps to reduce illiteracy and poverty which are impediments to national development.

 Science is the basis of technology and mathematics which promote skills and creativity to solve various problems. It plays a critical role in providing knowledge, skills and technology advancement for social and economic development.

Science education identifies natural phenomena appropriate to a child’s interest and skills, equip teachers, learners and the society with knowledge, skills, and freedom to perform noble tasks useful for improving socio-economic standard.

An appraisal of guidance and counselling services in higher institutions

An Appraisal Of Guidance And Counselling Services In Higher Institutions In Niger State

 Background to the Study

Guidance has been acknowledged by many psychologists to be as old as the emergence of human civilization. Guidance as a formalized system of helping individuals to achieve self-direction, self-understanding and mental balance necessary to make maximum adjustment to the school, was traced to the 20th century American society (Makinde, 1990).

The concept of guidance, although relatively new in Africa as a whole, has been embraced by most developing countries. The major reason is that guidance is regarded by most countries as an educational service through which efficient manpower development can be executed. Guidance has been in Nigerian traditional society for centuries before the advent of the western model. In traditional guidance, parents, elders, peers and other specialists in the community served as counsellors (Makinde, 1984).

However, the traditional guidance was no longer adequate in all facets of an individual’s life-style and that of the country at large. Individuals have been found to need more organized type of guidance to help with the sophistication of modern life and its associated problems. Hence, the introduction of formal guidance and counselling in Nigeria in 1959 by a group of Catholic Reverend Sisters at Saint Theresa’s Collage, Ibadan. They introduced vocational information and placement services for their final year students. The professionals were not trained counsellors but they knew more about the world of work than the sisters and students. The immediate outcome of this career guidance was that virtually all the students who applied for various jobs were employed. Consequently, career guidance not only became an annual event in the collage, but those professionals were invited by other schools within Ibadan to organize similar workshops for their graduating students.
