It is a serious attempt to explore the changes that befell the Somali society and converted into a poor, failure and famine struck state in the present though it was a powerful and rich state in the past. The trilogy is a documentation of the history of Somalia from a philosophical standpoint; it delves into clan and ethnic traditions and, at the same time, expounds the adverse consequences of colonisation that have been invoked by the first wave of the ‘Rush to Africa’ in the nineteenth century. The article is an endeavour to underline the complex status of subalternity of the Somalis whose palimpsestic historical and political situation forced a palimpsestic identity. Farah’s ‘Blood in the Sun’ trilogy enfolds three novels; i.e. <em>Maps </em>(1986),<em> Gifts </em>(1993), and<em> Secrets</em> (1998) which are reflective of the current failure social and political situation which negatively influences the identity of the natives. The article hopes to be the kernel of further studies handling the complex postcolonial identity of the Somalis from a historical-political perspective.</p> 2021-08-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Dr. Naeema Abdelgawad https://ijohmn.com/index.php/ijohmn/article/view/236 The Effect of Grammar Teaching Methods on Students’ Writing Skill 2021-08-31T10:58:19+00:00 Fadiel Mohammed Musa fadielmoosa@yahoo.com <p>This study investigates the effect of grammar teaching methods on students’ writing skill in secondary level. The study was based on action research, carried out in the academic year 2017 in one of Sudanese secondary schools. The participants were in second year. They studied English for the same number of years (6 years).The study followed two different methods of grammar teaching: 1) grammar in<em> 'context'</em> and 2) in <em>'isolation'</em> to assess which method is more beneficial for English learners to write grammatical error-free composition. Students were divided into two groups: control and experimental groups.For the purpose of high measurement, participants in the two groups sat for apre English test on writing. The results showed that P-value of T-test (0.567) was greater than significant level (0.05) which means there was no statistical difference between experimental and control groups in the pre-test. Then the experiment was run; teaching the two groups using different methods.The control group was taught grammar<em>in isolation method</em>; where experimental group was taught grammar <em>in context</em>.Instructions lasted for two months and the two groups had the same writing test. The results indicated that P-value of T-test (0.000) was less than significant level (0.05) which means there was statistical difference between experimental and control in post-test. Finding showed that: teaching grammar <em>‘in context’ </em>helps students to produce better writing than teaching grammar <em>‘in isolation’</em>.</p> 2021-08-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Fadiel Mohammed Musa
