What are the coping mechanisms used by the students to pass the obstacles and hardships the students faced? 4.

When we conform to our peer group’s expectations, we are rewarded; if we do not conform, we may be ridiculed or even expelled from the group” (Kendall 79).

Another connection that I made was in chapter twelve of the textbook. The author explains,“…University graduates with four-year degrees are more likely to find initial employment with firms where they stand a chance of being promoted to high-level management and executive positions” (Kendall 354).

Adversity Quotient and Job Performance of Working Undergraduate Students For the recent decades, students opt to work while studying in order to support their education financially while others work to gain job experience that they may find helpful for their future. In higher education, the last three decades have witnessed a steady growth in both the number of fulltime undergraduate students participating in paid work, and the number of hours worked during term-time (Darmody and Smyth, 2008; Hall, 2010; as cited by Salamonson, Everett, Koch, Andrew & Davidson, 2012). Students might experience many difficulties in having to work and study lessons at the time. Finishing term-papers on time, preparing and reviewing for examinations, doing job responsibilities,
Maturation has a big role on how the students learn in classroom, so the researchers consider year level in this study. In every year level we have different ages of a student and different point of views in life, the researchers decided to disassociate the respondents by age and by year level. According to Judith Smith (2008) mature students study full-time, part-time or are distance learners, and in this respect are indistinguishable from younger learners. However, they are more likely to study part-time higher education than younger age groups. These are the variables under the characteristics of deductive teaching approach: New Concepts In this study new concepts is included in the characteristic of deductive teaching approach.

A Critical Review of “Gender in Schools: A Qualitative Study of Students in Educational Administration” by Mary Lou Andrews & Carolyn S. Ridenour Though the number of skilled women are increasing by time in administration, management and other job opportunities which have been considered as men’s profession, gender problems still exist in these areas. In the article, Mary Lou Andrews and Carolyn S. Ridenour (2006) make an effort to identify the impact of educational administration graduate class in diversity on students’ awareness of how gender plays a role in school culture and climate. The article seems to be valuable for identifying the diversity of learners and getting information about gender-awareness training. However, the authors fail to choose the right methodology for investigating students’ personal opinion about awareness of gender issues due to one-sided approach in relation to men-women administration experience, the arguments which are claimed by authors are supported by non-current social experiments and the lack of detailed evidence make these statements questionable and suspect. In “Gender in Schools: A Qualitative Study of Students in Educational Administration”, Mary Lou Andrews and Carolyn S. Ridenour (2006) tried to examine gender-awareness training as part of a school administrator preparation program and its effects on students preparing to become school leaders and the main purpose was investigating whether the students who took this course, became
