Abstract/Notes: Researchers widely acclaim that the film (video film) has very far reaching effects on young persons, as it amongst other factors, even promotes violence and dictates youth fashions and fads .The Nigerian Education Policy is yet to fully integrate the arts - media arts, dramatic arts, and music into the school curriculum; except at the university level where these are specific courses of study. This paper advocates that this being the case, the time is ripe to repackage the video film as suitable educational material, for integration into the school curriculum, as appropriate teaching aids that enhance understanding of subject matter. Sadly, for now, this inestimable resource is relegated to the hidden curriculum. There is no doubt that the teaching of English Language or French, Geography and the sciences, would be quite enhanced with electronic teaching aids, a formidable and potent medium that school children are already in tune with. This being the case, It is pertinent to start by taking a cursory look at education and the current methodology of formal knowledge acquisition in schools. This will help in the delineation of what modes and processes have been employed, and what is necessary to be adopted. Education is not merely acquired for the sake of it as Peters observes, rather it is “the transmission of, or initiation into things which are intrinsically worthwhile and desirable”...

Abstract/Notes: In traditional education, Mathematics has always been a great challenge to learners, maybe because it is taught as abstract from early years. On the other hand, the Montessori Method uses the hands-on approach in teaching numeracy from early years. This study therefore compared the traditional approach and the Montessori Method in the teaching of numeracy in selected public schools in Delta North Senatorial District. Two schools and four classes were purposively selected in Ika South, of Delta North Senatorial District. Twenty five pupils were selected for each approach in the two schools. At the end of the study, the children in the Montessori class performed better on the numeracy test than those taught with the traditional approach. It was concluded that hands-on approach enhances understanding of numeracy from early years. It was therefore recommended that the teachers in the schools in Delta State should be retrained on the use of hands on activities in the teaching of numeracy in early years.

Abstract/Notes: The Effect of the Montessori Method on teaching was investigated among children to discover their artistic development in Zaria, Kaduna State. The problem of the study is that the Montessori Method on teaching cultural and creative arts is not adequately explored in the primary schools, while other teaching methods used, do not bring out the full potentials of children’s artistic capabilities. Thus the study attempted to find out if the Montessori Method has effect on children’s artistic development. The aim of the study is to explore the effect of the Montessori Methods on the development of children’s creativity. Quasi experimental design was used for analyzing the instruments. A drawing test was administrated to the children using the Montessori Method of teaching; a semi-structured interview was also administered to the teachers. Total of 1,030 pupils (boys and girls) in primary schools from randomly selected schools were involved in the study. The data collected was analyzed using simple t-test, ANOVA and chi-square. The method of teaching was assessed on children’s developmental stages in creative artistic development between pre-schematic stage, schematic stage and gang stage. The findings revealed that the Montessori Method on Teaching had a positive effect on the Children’s artistic development and performance in the primary schools in Zaria. The pupils had a general positive and enthusiastic attitude towards culture and creative arts. This shows that when children are given the opportunity and enough art materials to express themselves, they would be able to display their different characteristics. The Montessori Method of teaching was better adopted than the conventional teaching methods used on the development of the creative artistic abilities of Children in the primary schools.
