R. Lalmuanpuii


Abstract: The study is an attempt to determine the effect of teacher-student approach in health education on menstruation and menstrual hygiene to adolescent girls of selected schools in Vellore City.The collected data are tabulated and analysed using Statistical Package of Sociological Science (SPSS 17.0). The demographic data like age, religion, family income, education, type of family, age at menarche and source of information are analysed using descriptive statistics. The study also uses the following tests: independent ?t,? paired ?t? test, Pearson?s correlation coefficient (r) test and chi-square test. In the experimental group (teachers), there is a significant increase in the mean score of knowledge (9.9 to 14.60), attitude (32.90 to 36) and practice (7.10 to 14.60) in post-test as compared to pre-test. Whereas in the control group, there is insignificant increase in the mean score of knowledge (10.10 to13.60), attitude (29.70 to 30.30) and practice (6.30 to 7.30) after administering self-instructional pamphlets on menstruation and menstrual hygiene. In the experimental group (adolescent girls), there is a significant increase in knowledge (7.72 to 15.06), attitude (27.30 to 32.15) and practice (5.79 and to 8.58) after the structured teaching programme by the school teachers. Whereas in the control group, there is insignificant increase in the mean score of knowledge (7.03 to 10.87), attitude (25.76 to 26.90) and practice (6.30 to 7.30) after administering self-instructional pamphlets on menstruation and menstrual hygiene. The study concludes that the structured teaching programme is effective for both the school teachers and adolescent girls as compared to using self-instructional pamphlets on menstruation and menstrual hygiene.
