TO EVALUATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF USING PROJECT-BASED ASSESSMENTS IN IMPROVING THE CRITICAL THINKING AND TEAM BUILDING SKILLS OF A GRADE 11 BUSINESS EDUCATION CLASS – Published Thesis by TIOU CLARKE

  Final Dissertation Presented to The Academic Department Of the School of Social and Human Studies In Partial Fulfilment of the Requirements For the Degree of Doctor of Education   Abstract Critical thinking and team building skills are some of the sought after skills that students need to have but lack in the world of work. The purpose of this qualitative research is to understand the effectiveness of Project-based assessment on the critical thinking and team building skills of a group of grade 11 business education students. The study population for this reach was a group of 15 students along with a total of 5 teachers and administrative staff at a local high school in Jamaica. They were given a group project in three parts and observed using interviews, focus groups and comparison of current assignment with previous assignment to identify themes to answer the central research question. Data were analyzed and three themes were derived; students are not against working in groups, their critical thinking and team building skills were improved, and longer time for group would reveal more information. The findings and recommendations noted that using this form of assessment would improve the learning outcome of students by the end of the school year and produce more industry ready employees.   – TIOU CLARKE

The Influence of Anti-aging Culture on Body Image and Self-perception of Menopausal Women in Israel

The present study examines the subject of body image and self-perception of menopausal women in Israel as well as the relationships between menopause, body image, self-perception, and anti-aging culture. The study was conducted using the qualitative methodology, in the phenomenology and narrative paradigms, thereby providing a platform through which the participants could describe their subjective experiences. The participants were 25 Israeli women aged 48-60. The use of in-depth semi-structured interviews enabled participants to share their life stories, emotions, and perceptions about their body, their “self”, and anti-aging culture during menopause. Each interview lasted about two hours, and was recorded, transcribed, and analyzed. The study addressed themes such as self-fulfillment, beauty ideals, grooming, menses, fertility, sexuality, social roles and expectations, styling, healthy lifestyle, and women’s body image in different stages of life, such as childhood, adolescence, and menopause. Israel is a multicultural nation consisting of immigrants from different countries and cultures. Each culture is different and influences women’s perceptions about body image, menopause, aging, and anti-aging. Nevertheless, the findings of the study reveal similar environmental factors that influence Israeli women’s life experiences. These factors include Jewish and Israeli history, tradition, and religion, which impact the narrative of menopause and body image and create perceptions of aging and anti-aging. An additional important aspect revealed in the study is that of the individual’s personality and her life story, which also affect her subjective body image and self-perception during menopause. Key words: Menopause,  body image, self-perception, qualitative research
