Two research questions were raised and three null hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. The study adopted quasi-experimental non-equivalent control group design. </em><em>The population of this study comprise all the </em><em>1,876 SS II financial accounting students from six education zones in the 257 public secondary schools in Anambra State. Findings revealed that flipped classroom technique has a higher effect on students’ interest scores in financial accounting than the lecture method and the difference was significant. Flipped classroom technique was more effective in enhancing the interest of male students in financial accounting than female students and the difference was not significant. The study concludes that flipped classroom technique is not only gender-friendly but also an active instructional approach that positively enhances the interest of students in financial accounting. It is recommended among others that management of secondary schools should subject financial accounting teachers to capacity building programmes through workshop, seminar and symposium on flipped classroom technique to enable them learn the rudiments of how to use the technique for teaching financial accounting</em></p> N.

The need is particularly pertinent because the Bible was originally written in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. The Hebrew Bible<strong> – </strong>the Old Testament presents many valuable principles and concepts which if properly interpreted, could result in reorientation in many spheres. For indigenous people in Nigeria, who are turning in large numbers to Christianity, a proper interpretation of Old Testament texts is key to full integration of the scripture into daily life conduct. The aim of this paper is to interpret the concept of justice in Micah 6:6-8 with a view to showing its relevance in the appreciation of justice among indigenous people in Nigeria. The work adopts the grammatical exegetical method of biblical hermeneutics. It finds that the call to do justice in Micah 6:6-8 is inalienably universal and inclusive, requiring all to pursue equity and fairness in daily conduct. It also finds that the idea of justice among Nigerians can positively be informed and reinforced by subscribing to the principles of justice in Micah 6:6-8. The paper submits in conclusion that the final pro</em><em>ducts of a proper exegetical x-ray of Micah 6:6-8 are valid for rethinking justice in contemporary times.</em></p> Moses Idemudia Copyright (c) 2024 International Scholar Journal of Arts and Social Science Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2024-01-04 2024-01-04 7 1 Public perception of Informal Strategies for Curbing Domestic Violence Against Women in Ofu Local Government Area of Kogi State, Nigeria https://www.theinterscholar.org/journals/index.php/isjassr/article/view/246 <p><em>Domestic violence in any form is like a canker-worm in the society which must be eradicated. Informal control mechanisms have been favoured in dealing with domestic violence against women, especially, in the rural areas. This study examines the perceived informal strategies for controlling domestic violence against women in Ofu Local Government Area of Kogi State, Nigeria. The study employed questionnaire and in-depth interview to generate data from 398 study participants. While majority agreed that the offending partner is made to pay fine or flogged publicly as a deterrence, some of the respondents disagreed with the use of some elements of the strategies which are likely to impact negatively on their relationship with their offending partners. The study concludes that, domestic violence is a social problem which must be tackled on time before it gets out of proportion. It recommends among others that, a more vigorous advocacy campaign against domestic violence should be intensified through the mass media, family, community and religious organisations. Government and Non-governmental organisations should intensify efforts on initiating free education; community based educational programmes, vocational training, and life-skills development centres to empower</em></p> Loveth Ladi Attah Julius Olugbenga OWOYEMI Copyright (c) 2024 International Scholar Journal of Arts and Social Science Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2024-01-03 2024-01-03 7 1
