The purpose of this article is to research the manifestations of clipped thinking in students when reading scientific texts in the educational process. The study involved 42 students in 2-4 courses studying in the direction of "psychological and pedagogical education" at the Taganrog Institute of A.P. Chekhov. To determine the severity of clipped thinking, we used an experimental survey methodology. Based on the material of students' work with a psychological text, the article examines the peculiarities of students' perception and understanding of certain provisions of the text, depending on the degree of severity of the indicators of clip thinking as a cognitive style, characterized by the efficiency of processing information of a significant volume, areflexia, and insufficient criticality. The study revealed that with insufficient comprehension of the text, some students tend to intuitively use the protective mechanism of avoidance, reducing the assessment of some provisions of the text.

In recent years, there has been a remarkable increase in the intensity and frequency of natural disasters.There is no doubt that a thorough knowledge of natural disasters and an adequate awareness of how to protect against their negative consequences will spare many individuals considerable losses. Accordingly, the present study aims to investigate students’ level of awareness of natural disasters within a cross-cultural perspective. Twelve schools in Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Yemen were selected (four schools from each country). The total research sample consisted of 180 sixth and ninth grade students randomly selected from the targeted schools, with 60 students from each country. Semi-structured interviews were implemented. The results indicate that the majority of students in these three countries have a false or complete lack of perception of the phenomena of earthquakes and volcanoes. Only 20.6% of students in these three countries had a completely correct perception of how earthquakes occur. An analysis of students’ drawings of this phenomenon revealed that, on average,only 13.3% were able to clarify the scientific reason for earthquakes; the highest percentage of correct answers came from the students of the Arab Republic of Egypt (15.0%), followed by Saudi students (13.3%) and then Yemeni students (11.7%). Furthermore, it was found that the religious understanding, culture and day-to-day experiences of thelearners in these countries influence their cognizance and analysis of natural events, and that they develop intricate understanding and theories based on their beliefs and experiences.

This research is motivated by the problem of the contribution of project-based learning (PBL) to the learning process which only helps the teacher's task or has a significant contribution to the acquisition of student knowledge. The aim of the research is to investigate the effectiveness of PBL in involving students in the learning process, the contribution of PBL to authentic, iterative, collaborative, and student discipline learning. The research method used is factorial design analysis using structural equation models. The participants involved in this study were 250 teachers who used PBL in their learning process. The findings show that all the main aspects of learning methods such as authentic, disciplined, collaborative, repetitive learning and student engagement are significantly correlated with PBL. Through these main aspects, PBL is able to involve students optimally in participating in the learning process. They can be more optimal in obtaining new knowledge and information in the learning process. So, in addition to optimizing student involvement in the learning process, PBL also facilitates students to optimally acquire knowledge in the learning process.
