Washback of the Public Examination on Teaching ...

Washback influences a variety of teaching and learning areas directly and indirectly, either positively or negatively, or both. The key objectives of the study were to examine washback as a phenomenon relating to those areas that were most likely to be directly affected by the HSC examination in English.The findings of those studies have shown that, in most of the cases, tests narrow down the syllabus and curriculum, influence the selection of lesson contents, alter teaching methods and materials, but some have indicated that tests have limited or no impact on those areas.The study is potentially significant in that it offers educators and policymakers insights into English language teaching and learning at the HSC level. Most importantly, it highlights the voices of teachers and students, the very important people at the centre of the teaching and learning process. It finally advocates the needs for further research on the potential areas of washback.

Practical Pediatric Cardiology
120,99 € *

Heart disease in children has a number of diagnostic traps for the unwary, and all of us involved in the specialty have been caught at one time or another. For example, it is sometimes very difficult to differentiate between respiratory and cardiac disease in infants and between neurological and cardiac conditions in older children, and the consequences of taking the wrong path can be significant. This book is a collection of cases highlighting situations which can ensnare even the best cardiologist. Although they illustrate the importance of taking a good history and performing a thorough examination, the most important lesson is learning to keep an open mind and develop the ability to think laterally. As clinicians we need to have the confidence to make a decision for our patients but also the humility to be able to acknowledge that we don't always get it right first time, and it is imperative that we learn from the experience. We hope the reader will find these short chapters interesting and while they are not evidence-based medicine in the true sense, they do represent a wide range of clinical experience from which we can all learn. _

Manifestations of Curriculum Change on Organiza...

The purpose of this work is to examine the manifestations of curriculum change on organizational culture of a primary school, with a specific focus on the culture of teachers. In this study, phenomenological design was used to investigate what meanings teachers attached to the changing nature and structure of their work, through the examination of the organizational culture of one primary school located in Ankara. Findings revealed that although teachers perceived the change as a threat at the initiation process due to their experiencing lack of choice, they later expressed approval of the values and beliefs of the constructivist curriculum. However, when their meanings and perceptions regarding implementation are examined, it seems that the constraints regarding implementation are more decisive than these values and beliefs. Besides, it was found that teachers mostly defined factors outside them as constraints to their implementation of the curriculum, such as physical limitations or insufficient in-service training. Finally, findings showed that the working lives of teachers outside the classroom manifested change especially in aspects like lesson planning and cooperation.

Teaching Communicative Reading Strategies to EF...

Communicative language teaching is the stated goal for learning the English language in Iraq. An examination of the Iraqi English reading classes shows that communicative methodology has not been implemented into the classroom practices to enable the students to be proficient readers. The current reading instruction does not consider the use of an interactive model of reading, nor does it teach reading strategies. Thus, with such practices, students are unlikely to become proficient readers. Based on such factors that influence English language teaching in Iraq, this study was conducted. The study investigates the current practices of reading instruction in Iraqi high schools and how effective these practices were when compared to the best practices of communicative language teaching. The results revealed that the actual practices in Iraqi high schools were less effective in producing successful readers who could actively interact with the text in order to achieve comprehension. Finally, recommendations for improvement are proposed. The proposal presents a six-hour lesson plan to be considered as a model of practices that may be incorporated into the English language classroom.

This work will combine a critical examination of the history of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), more particularly, Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) with a study of its relationships with Second Language Acquisition theories. We will review the findings of 4 main fields of research: the Cognitive Linguistics approach, the Psycholinguistic perspective, the General Human Learning and the Language in Social Context approaches, and their possible applications for CALL. Then, we will analyse the positive effect and drawbacks of these research findings. We will then comment on the attempts by researchers to combine these theories which, taken one by one, have a limited scope, into one metatheory which would favour a broad range of breakthroughs and new learning opportunities. Finally, we will design an activity for CALL which will be built from some of the theoretical findings reviewed in this paper, and from the latest technological tools currently on offer. This tailor-made computer based activity will teach the French subjunctive of doubt and will be included in a lesson plan and integrated in a syllabus.
