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 #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 #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.


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 Oct 1998

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 modeling …

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 …

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 Cultural Ideas Exchange Program Model, Monika L. Walker Jan 1998

The Cultural Ideas Exchange Program Model, Monika L. Walker

Teacher Education Faculty Proceedings & Presentations

“The primary objective of Cultural Ideas Exchange Program or CIEP is to provide informative insight and reports on those issues and events that ultimately affect the lives and welfare of minority and ethnic student populations.” Primary Objective Historically, the "ideas" to include opinions and societal contributions of African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans, as well as other diverse cultural groups have often been underrepresented in the North American social and political scheme. The Cultural Ideas Exchange Program or CIEP is based on global communication and has been developed in an effort to:

• Provide informative insight and reports on those …


An Intergenerational Literacy Project For Migrant Families, Sandra E. Harmening, Amy C. Kiesz Jan 1998

An Intergenerational Literacy Project For Migrant Families, Sandra E. Harmening, Amy C. Kiesz

All Graduate Projects

The relationship between student achievement and parental involvement was reviewed and found to be significant. A model project was developed to include seven migrant families intergenerationally within the context of the classroom. The purpose was to enhance the relationship between students and parents/guardians and between these low literacy families and the school institution. The result was projected to be a better understanding of each family's heritage, an increase in volunteerism at the school site, more interest in school work and accomplishment, and the possible residual effect of parental desire to improve their literacy skills.

The results showed a desire by families to continue with the project, as well as an higher achievement in score on the reading and language sub-tests of the Metropolitan Achievement Test by students having a seventy percent program attendance rate in comparison with limited English speaking students of non-participating families. Program modifications for the following school year were discussed.


Multi-Culture Unit On Native Americans, Calvin E. Marschall Jan 1998

Multi-Culture Unit On Native Americans, Calvin E. Marschall

Teaching English/Spanish Cognates To Increase Reading Comprehension, Stacey A. Suhm Jan 1998

Teaching English/Spanish Cognates To Increase Reading Comprehension, Stacey A. Suhm

All Graduate Projects

A curriculum has been developed for middle school English as a Second Language (ESL) students to improve their reading comprehension. A review of the literature found that vocabulary is an essential part of reading comprehension and becoming aware of English/Spanish cognates can increase the students' English vocabulary. The curriculum includes a survey to assess a student's knowledge and use of cognates, lesson plans to introduce the concept of cognates, to practice recognizing English/Spanish cognates, and learn the correlation of suffixes between English and Spanish. The curriculum also includes lists of English/Spanish cognates divided by subjects.

Shrinking The World: A Supplementary High School Computer Curriculum, Trevor L. T. Greene

All Graduate Projects

The project contains a high school supplementary computer curriculum centered on the acquisition of the Spanish language and understanding of the culture. The review of the literature indicates that the computer can be an effective medium with which to facilitate cooperative or collaborative learning and individualized instruction. In addition, technology provides an opportunity for peer tutoring and can instill a desire to learn. The project activities were designed around communicative, cultural, or structural goals that were identified in one or more of the three lessons located in each unit of the Dime Uno textbook. The supplementary computer curriculum was developed …
