Current pedagogical orientations show a growing interest in teaching strategies, which circumvent traditional models, benefiting learning effectively and innovatively. The brain quadrant model helps guide people's personal and professional roles based on existing Sperry models (left and right hemisphere) and the McLean model (cortical and limbic brain). Herrmann crossed these two models to find the source of personal creativity based on the dominance of one or the other quadrant in each person so that they can recognize what would be the effective way to improve teaching. Through explanatory inquiry, cognitive innovation developed in teaching and honing cognitive, affective-social psychomotor skills to achieve different styles of learning and applicability is evaluated in content in daily life.</p> Olga Viviana Torres Teran, Maria Antonia Velez Tuarez, María Pamela Zambrano Quiroz, Maria Elena Moya Martinez ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/338 Fri, 20 Sep 2019 12:07:11 +0000 Swadharma grihastha asrama on educating children toward Hindu families https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/339 <p style="text-align: justify;">The current article aimed at knowing and understanding <em>swadharma grihastha asrama</em> on educating children towards Hindu families. Data collection methods were observation, library studies, and in-depth interviewed. This research was conducted in Lombok Regency. The results of this study indicated that the teachings of Hinduism for Sarasamuscaya and Nitisastra have not been optimally implemented by Hindu parents in Lombok.

The population on the current study were companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange from 2015 to 2018. The sampling technique used non-probability sampling with a purposive sampling method to get 20 companies as research samples. The data analysis technique used moderated regression analysis. The test results provide empirical evidence that high financial expertise can weaken the influence of financial distress on income maximitation actions. This study also finds empirical evidence that the frequency of meetings is not a moderating effect of financial distress on income maximitation. The third hypothesis testing shows that the independence of the audit committee is able to moderate the relationship between financial distress on income maximitation.</p> I Made Bana Partha, Anak Agung Gde Putu Widanaputra, Ni Made Dwi Ratnadi, Ni Putu Sri Harta Mimba ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/343 Mon, 30 Sep 2019 07:10:14 +0000 Formative assessment as tool to improve on teaching process–learning for students https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/354 <p style="text-align: justify;">In the Educational Unit, June 5 Garden of the city of Manta, research related to formative evaluation was carried out, to measure the learning-teaching process, the goal is to determine how the processes behave in the students.

The purpose of this article was to investigate the evaluation approaches that teachers assume in the teaching and learning process in the Educational Unit “Edwin Hernán Mendoza Bravo”, of the Colón parish, to learn how the teacher performs the evaluation practices in their daily work The research that was carried out was of exploratory type and with a descriptive and systematic methodology supported in the review of bibliographic sources of the specialized literature. The technique and instrument that was used was the survey to achieve, interpret and reveal the results obtained, according to these, it was possible to reach the following conclusions: Many teachers do not usually apply the educational evaluation in their pedagogical work and focus on the tests or exams to obtain final results. Authentic evaluation and innovative strategies are unimportant elements because traditional techniques and instruments such as the written test and the questionnaire still prevail.</p> Maria Antonia Velez Tuarez, Mariela Alexandra Calderon Delgado, Ronald Ivan Zamora Delgado, Julio Eduardo Vallejo Romero ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/361 Fri, 15 Nov 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Ngaba and makta of balinese action verbs, how to map their meanings? https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/349 <p style="text-align: justify;">The parts of the body is the most common location for the activity having notion <em>to</em> <em>bring</em> represented by verbs in Balinese Language. This article aims to map the meaning of the action verbs having <em>to bring</em> notion, represented by <em>ngaba </em>and <em>makta</em>. The oral data was collected from key-informen residing in two regencies in Bali, namely Klungkung and Karangasem. The written data are from the newspaper called <em>Bali Orti</em> published from March-May 2019. The method of collecting the spoken data was interviewing the key-informen in both regencies, however the written one was by observation and note-taking. <strong>Metalanguage</strong> applied to analyze the collected data, showed that there are two features found for the meaning of the action verbs <em>to bring, </em>namely <em>generic</em> and <em>specific</em>. The generic feature is represented by <em>ngaba </em>or<em> makta </em>mapped by ‘someone brings something in any parts of one’s body’, the specific one is characterized by the special location where the action <em>to bring</em> happens, e.g. <em>nyuun</em> ‘the activity of <em>to bring </em>happens on one’s head, <em>negen </em>’bring something on one’s shoulder’, etc.&nbsp; Almost nearly all the specific data features the one’s part of body as the place of the action.</p> I Nengah Sudipa, I Nyoman Weda Kusuma, Made Henra Dwikarmawan Sudipa, Komang Dian Puspita Candra ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/349 Mon, 18 Nov 2019 06:04:54 +0000 Community-based tourism: measuring readiness of artificial intelligence on traditional village https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/352 <p style="text-align: justify;">The paper aimed at describing and elaborating the different meanings appear on the description of tourist destinations in two forms. On the one hand is a cyberspace image in two locations tourist destinations, on the other hand, is an image of the real fact after visitor came to a destination place.

For a long time, the study of mathematics has been presented as a complicated and tedious activity that prevents the inter-learning of students, causing poor academic performance. For this reason, it was necessary to investigate the different learning strategies, which can be applied in the subject of mathematics, based on contemporary pedagogical currents that contribute to raising the academic level in students. It is worth noting that there are several variables that influence the low school performance, such as personal, institutional, and social environment that marks the student's learning process, by virtue of what has been said above, it is sought to define what would be the characteristics of those variables that determine school failure or success. For this, a theoretical foundation was reviewed, from which a conceptual analysis was carried out, on the different factors that condition school performance.</p> Dubal Edisson Salvatierra Tumbaco, William Ecuador Martínez Albán, María José Briceño Ruperti, David Eloy Palma Palacios ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/362 Wed, 20 Nov 2019 03:38:41 +0000 Program evaluation: implementation of tourism village development https://sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/356 <p style="text-align: justify;">The tourism development program is a sustainable development program that has a vision of achieving equitable economic growth in the community that is based on the utilization of the potential of natural resources and other resources in the community.
