      Abstract The objective of this study was to examine the beliefs of Jordanian kindergarten teachers toward developmentally appropriate practices (DAP). The sample consists of 285 (14.9%) randomly selected teachers working in public and private kindergartens. A questionnaire with two parts, (1) general information and (2) teachers’ beliefs regarding DAP, was developed to answer the research questions. The items were distributed into the five dimensions of early childhood professional practice that were published by the National Association for the education of young children (NAEYC). The findings indicated that the overall mean score of kindergarten teachers’ beliefs on the five dimensions was 4.08, indicating high beliefs toward (DAP). Teachers endorsed DAP on all dimensions except establishing reciprocal relationships with families. The findings also indicated that there are no significant differences between the means of teachers’ beliefs toward teaching children according to teachers’ level of education, years of experience, or teacher’s age (except in the caring community of learners and the development and learning domains). In the light of the findings of this study, some recommendations are presented. Keywords Teachers’ beliefs  Developmentally appropriate practices  Kindergarten Download

The study sample consisted of (447) male and female students, studying in a number of public and private universities in Jordan. A questionnaire consisted of 34 items has been used in the study to collect information to answer the study questions. In analyzing the questionnaire results, arithmetic means, the standard deviation and statistical (t-test) were used. The study results indicated that the student/ teacher possesses a mixture of constructive and traditional conceptions concerning learning and teaching, whereas their conceptions inclined more toward the constructivism .The results also indicated that the student/ teacher conceptions concerning learning and teaching have change as they progress in the university study. The conceptions of the senior students become more constructive and less traditional compared to the freshman students with significant statistical differences.

      This study aimed at identifying the system of human value of values; it also aimed at identifying the correlation between environmental concern & behaviour. consisted of 218 students, using three questionnaires to collect data. The fir paragraphs using Schwarz model; the second questionnaire included 20 paragraphs to measure environmental concern depending on the scale of Thompson and Barton, whereas the third questionnaire included 22 paragraphs to measure the environmental behaviour. Results showed that students own a system of valuesin four dimensions, but tend more to be towards the traditional values nature. Findings also showed a positive correlation between general values in two dimensions (conservatism, and self-transcendence), and environmental values whether (eco between the general values in two dimensions (Openness, S Keywords: eco-centric, anthropocentric, 1. Introduction Since the beginning of the environmental movement, in mid 1970s, researchers have attempted to ide that lead people to express concern for environmental issues. Over the last two decades, a number of studies have suggested that values should be considered a core concept in the study of environmentalism, and tried to link research on environmentalism with social psychological literature on values (Schultz and Zelezny, 1999). Therefore, we find that recent researches worldwide tried to explore underlying values that provide a basis for environmental concern and pro-environmental behavior i environmental behavior can include personal buying behavior, travel behavior, recycling and use of resources, and participation in a pro-environmental organization (Snelgar,2006).Whereas Jordanian stud environmental literacy (knowledge, attitudes and concerns) or how environmental values are in curricula contexts , but very few studies tried to explore the values and environmental con values and behavior , as in this study . Jordan has taken lots of steps in respect to environmental concern over twenty years ago. So that the Ministry of Education developed an environmental educational strateg students with the necessary information on environment , aiming at raising their environmental awareness, and enriching them with environmental values and attitudes , affecting their behavior po Noting that, Jordan is facing a lot of environmental problems, such as scarcity in water resources and increasing demand on energy. Also we can notice that most Jordanian universities introduce courses that may raise the student's awareness towards better environmental practices and behaviors. Over the years, researchers who studied values have used different theories, but the most notable one is Schwartz’s value theory. Schwartz considers values as criteria that people use to select and justify t others. He proposes five main features of values: 1) they are beliefs; 2) they transcend specific actions and situations; 3) they refer to desirable goals; 4) they guide the selections or evaluation of behaviors and events and; 5) t ordered by relative importance (Schwartz Schwartz identified ten types of value ordered in terms of four values clusters: openness to change (stimulation, self direction), conservation (conformity, tradition, security), self transcendence (welfare for others, universalism, benevolence domains are culturally universal in 2003). 9 2222-2863 (Online) 162 Behaviour: A Jordanian sample Amani Jarrar Amman, Jordan E-mail: Eman Gheith E-mail: values of Petra university students according to Schwartz theory first questionnaire included the 40 sure and less towards the human values; students' interests were centred on eco-centric, or anthropocentric) and a weak correlation Self enhancement) and the environmental values. environmental concern, values, Environmental behavior ironmentalism instead of exploring general environmental concern.

      Eman Gheith, " Environmental Value Orientations and its Relation to Pro- Environmental Behavior among Petra University Students in Jordan " , "Journal of Education and Practice",Vol.4,No.22,, , 10/31/2013 Abstract:
      Abstract This study aimed at identifying environmental value orientations held by the students of Petra Private University– Jordan, identifying the reported level of pro- environmental behavior that is expected from them, and finding the relationship between environmental values and the students' pro-environmental behavior. The study sample consists of (296) male and female students enrolled at Petra Private University. Two questionnaires have been used in this study; the first questionnaire consists of (25) items to assess the environmental value orientations in three dimensions: ecocentrism, anthropocentrism, and environmental apathy. The second questionnaire consists of (31) items to measure the pro-environmental behavior expected from the students. The study results indicated that students hold several environmental values in all three dimensions at various degrees. Moreover, the students’ values lean more toward ecocentrism and less toward anthropocentrism, whereas the least students’ values lean toward environmental apathy. The results also show that significant and positive correlation exists between ecocentrism and the reported level of pro-environmental behavior.

      Abstract The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between the university students’ meta-cognition thinking and their ability to solve mathematical and scientific problems. 172 university students were involved in this study. The researchers employed two types of instruments: meta-cognition awareness inventory, and a mathematical & scientific problem solving test; which was constructed by the researchers. After the collection of data, the researchers ran a suitable statistical analysis. The study has concluded that Petra University students have a medium level of metacognitive thinking, and that the variables of sex, faculty, high school stream, and the current year in the university had no effect on their level of metacognitive thinking. The study has also shown that these students suffer from a lack of ability in solving mathematical and scientific problems; no significance correlation between the level of meta-cognitive thinking in the overall scale and the ability to solve mathematical and scientific problems. However, there was a significant correlation between a few factors of metacognitive thinking and the ability to solve mathematical problems, and these are: Procedural Knowledge, Evaluation, Fault Picking, and Managing Knowledge; as well as a significant correlation between Fault Picking and the ability to solve both mathematical and scientific problems. Keywords: meta-cognitive thinking, problem solving. Download
