The study revealed that the preservice teachers have joined teacher education program with behaviorist orientationwhich is not in harmony with the reform in teacher education. This study was an attempt to investigate and analyze gender representation in second cycle grade primary schools Social Studies textbooks.
For this purpose, four Social Studies textbooks which are in use in grades 5, 6, 7, and For this purpose, four Social Studies textbooks which are in use in grades 5, 6, 7, and 8 were investigated thoroughly.
The content analysis method was employed. The results revealed that there is no fair representation of females and males in some gender related characteristics.The aim of this study was to identify breeding practice, production objectives, selection and culling criterias of farmers for dairy cows in Alefa and Quara districts of North Gondar Zone Amhara National Regional State Ethiopia.
Data were collected by using structured questionnaire and the collected data were analyzed by using statistical package for social science SPSS Version The main production objectives of farmers in Quara district were for milk production 0. While in Alefa district it was 0. The main selection criteria for dam and sire in both districts were reproductive performance, body conformation and coat color.
Most farmers in both districts were decided to cull the herd when they showed long AFS with index value of 0. While bout About While the majority Under uncontrolled random mating effective population size and rate of inbreeding for Quara district was 9. While for Alefa district it was 3. Livestock production is one of the most important means to achieve better living standards in many regions of the developing world.
The national economies and the livelihood of rural communities in sub-Saharan African countries are largely depended on livestock production. The total cattle population of Ethiopia is estimated to be about Out of this total cattle population, the female cattle constitute about According to CSA survey result, about Of the total livestock population, dairy cows are estimated to be around 6. Breeding objective of the community is better to obtaining milk yield.
Fogera cattle breed is preferred by most communities, due to better expression of the dairy traits. Among the selection criteria of farmers for indigenous dairy cows, navel size, udder, teat size and pelvic width are commonly stated and hold the first three ranks of selection by farmers . Amhara National Regional State is one of the potential areas in the country for dairy production.
In this area cattle types like, Semen, Dembia, Wogera, Fogera, Qocherie, Mahbre Silasie composite, Gojam highland zebu, Wollo highland zebu and Raya Sanga are the major milk source of the communities . However, its productivity is declining time to time, because of different problems like, high inbreeding rate, shift of grazing lands to crop production, absence of well defined breeding objectives, selection and culling strategies .
North Gondar is a part of Amhara national regional state, which dairy production is a common way of life for the communities. Dembia and Qocherie cattle types are found in North Gondar zone and these cattle type are used for dairy production. Even though, its contribution in terms of milk production to the community is high, comprehensive baseline information about production objectives, breeding practice, selection and culling criterias were not identified.
Therefore, assessing of dairy production objectives, selection and culling criterias of farmers in North Goner Zone and documenting it for other researchers as well as policy makers was vital. The study was conducted between December and April to assess the production and reproduction performance of indigenous cattle breeds in Quara and Alefa districts of North Gondar zone.

Even very recently, scholars in the field of teacher educations e. In other words, it informs policy makers about what to do and where to focus in order to ensure actual implementation of constructivist teaching principle in schools at all levels. Thus, addressing teacher beliefs must necessarily be the first step, if any attempt to change current teaching practices is to be attempted Cheng et al.
In other words, classroom practices of teachers at all levels of the education ladder continue to rely heavily on the old didactic approach. To this end, the study attempted to answer the following basic research questions; 1. What beliefs do student-teachers hold about teaching and learning when they join the teacher education program?
What teaching approaches do student-teachers prefer to adopt? OECD argues that there are five main areas in which teachers have been found to hold significant beliefs — beliefs about learners and learning, teaching, subjects or curriculum, learning to teach, and about the self and the nature of teaching.
Strengthening this, Pajares indicated that beliefs about teaching are well established by the time students get to college.
