Flarr Pages #12: Perspectivismo: A New Approach To Teaching The Subjunctive, Tom Washington Oct 1998

Flarr Pages #12: Perspectivismo: A New Approach To Teaching The Subjunctive, Tom Washington

FLARR Pages

The current method of presenting the Spanish subjunctive in textbooks is flawed both conceptually and in its presentation sequentially, and that makes this most critical element of Spanish language more difficult to learn and teach than it should be.


Flarr Pages #10: Reading And Writing, Andre Lebugle Oct 1998

Flarr Pages #10: Reading And Writing, Andre Lebugle

FLARR Pages

During the first four or five months, language students learn a limited number of words and structures, which allows them to write on equally limited subjects, usually personal, such as: "Describe yourself, your friends and relatives, your room, your clothes, your weekly activities, etc. What do you buy when you go to the stores? Imagine a dialogue between two characters, etc." This type of composition is fine during that beginning period, but beyond, it loses its usefulness, for the learners tend to recycle the same ideas, phrases and constructions which they have been using since chapter two. Little improvement or ...

Flarr Pages #9: Teaching Preterite Vs. Imperfect In Spanish, Debra Maury

FLARR Pages

While textbooks have approached the troublesome practice of teaching the preterite and imperfect in a variety of ways, I have found that those that insist on a "Spanish-only" approach, working strictly in the target language, simply do not deliver the best results when it comes to student comprehension of the past tenses. A concept that does not exist in one's own native language (assuming here that it is English) can not be explained using the foreign language. The difference between preterite and imperfect seems to be one of the most difficult cases which is not best served by the ...


Flarr Pages #8: Spanish Teachers: Eliminate The Grammatical Paradigm To Facilitate Student Learning, Tom Washington Oct 1998

Flarr Pages #8: Spanish Teachers: Eliminate The Grammatical Paradigm To Facilitate Student Learning, Tom Washington

FLARR Pages

Since all textbooks present each new verb in this manner-and we, too, have learned with this approach -use of paradigm is assumed to be the best and possibly the only way to teach verbs.

The truth is that 1) the paradigm impedes the critical process of habit formation, 2) confronts the student with the false idea that one must learn six forms of each verb, and 3) causes unnecessary confusion and stress in the learning process.


Flarr Pages #11: Spanish: Teaching The "Musical Preterite", Tom Washington Oct 1998

Flarr Pages #11: Spanish: Teaching The "Musical Preterite", Tom Washington

FLARR Pages

If you were given the choice of learning 23 words or 95 words--and you knew that you would acquire the same amount of knowledge either way, which would you choose? That is the positive option that the "musical preterite" offers in teaching the simple past.

Equity Policy, Educational Practice, And Limited English Proficient (Lep) Students In Two High Schools In Miami, Dora Acherman-Chor Jun 1998

Equity Policy, Educational Practice, And Limited English Proficient (Lep) Students In Two High Schools In Miami, Dora Acherman-Chor

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Most studies of language minority students' performance focus on students' characteristics. This study uses qualitative methodology to examine instead how educational policies and practices affect the tracking of language minority students who are classified as limited English proficient (LEP). The placement of LEP students in core courses (English, Math, Social Studies, and Science) is seen as resulting from the interaction between school context and student characteristics. The school context includes factors such as equity policy requirements, overcrowding, attitudes regarding immigrants' academic potential, tracking, and testing practices. Interaction among these factors frequently leads to placement in lower track courses. It was ...

“This session will focus on the personal observations of three faculty who sought to establish a minor in Chicano/a-Latino/a Studies . . .

Two years previously, three faculty members from the College of Public Affairs and Community Service at UNO diligently worked to gather student and faculty support and put the ...

Flarr Pages #7: Culture And Society Through The Media: An Innovative Approach To Intermediate German, Madelyn Burchill

The intermediate year of language study is crucial. Not only is it a bridge to advanced study, but at the college level it includes a varied group of learners from understandably different introductory backgrounds. Most agree, it presents the greatest challenge for appropriate text selection and application!

The Role Of Ethnicity Among International Students In Adjustment To Acculturative Stress, Mohd Tajudin Hj Ninggal

Unlv College Of Education Multicultural & Diversity Newsletter, Steve Mccafferty, John Filler, Le Ann Putney, Kyle Higgins, Porter Troutman, Stanley Zehm, Cyndi Giorgis, Jack Starr, Sheila Gregory, Joyce Nelson-Leaf

Multicultural & Diversity Newsletter

As educators and future educators, we will be working with students from diverse groups and all walks of life. Many of us enter this field entrenched in our own culture with no real understanding of how others' life experiences have influenced their values and beliefs. The multicultural courses in the College of Education force us to examine how we came to adopt our values and from where our beliefs originated. No other course in the graduate curriculum forces us to challenge the myths and stereotypes of American society as profoundly as these courses.


Assessing Second Language Proficiency In An American University, Suwako Watanabe, Patricia Wetzel Jan 1998

Assessing Second Language Proficiency In An American University, Suwako Watanabe, Patricia Wetzel

World Languages and Literatures Faculty Publications and Presentations

There are currently two nation-wide trends that impinge significantly on language teaching and assessment at the university level in the U.S. One is the general wave of education reform, the other is the so-called "proficiency" movement in language teaching. That being said, these two categories are much too broad in their definitions and implications to be of any use in discussing what we wish to address here: actual practice in the second language classroom. We will therefore begin by constraining the relevant characteristics of each of these. We will then proceed to discuss their ongoing implications for what actually ...


The C-Test: Usefulness For Measuring Written Language Ability Of Non-Native Speakers Of English In High School, Jongsook Park Jan 1998

The C-Test: Usefulness For Measuring Written Language Ability Of Non-Native Speakers Of English In High School, Jongsook Park

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of the study is to evaluate whether the C-test is useful as a test measuring non-native speakers' ability of written language to help teachers and decision-makers select and place limited English proficient students for English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction in high schools in Iowa. The overall usefulness of the C-test is evaluated by examining individual qualities of test usefulness, or six qualities, in current testing theories: reliability, construct validity, authenticity, interactiveness, impact, and practicality. Chapter 1 of this study reports the background: a need for a test measuring non-native speakers' ability of written language to improve ...


‘Contrary To Our Way Of Thinking’: The Struggle For An American Indian Center In Chicago, Grant Arndt Jan 1998

‘Contrary To Our Way Of Thinking’: The Struggle For An American Indian Center In Chicago, Grant Arndt

Grant Arndt

When Chicago’s American Indian Center opened in 1953, it had a small core of dedicated leaders, but little support in the city. The Center’s board of directors had applied for funding to Chicago’s Metropolitan Welfare Council, the main clearing- house of philanthropic funding in the city, only to be told that the Center’s existence was “contrary to our way of thinking.” 1 It was not the first time that Native Americans seeking to cre- ate urban organizations had encountered rejection. For years, local Native American activists had found that urban Indians and Native American urban organizations ...
