Schooling Learning Teaching

Author: Nancy Diekelmann; John Diekelmann
Publisher: iUniverse
ISBN: 9781440113390
Release Date: 2009-03-05
Genre: Education

Schooling Learning Teaching: Toward Narrative Pedagogy calls forth ways of thinking the issues of schooling, learning, and teaching. The task of this book is to plumb this triad as a phenomenological relationship that emerges as an “intra” rather than an “inter.” Do conventional pedagogies favor preparing nursing students for a healthcare system that no longer exists? Has competency-based nursing education reached its completion? Exhausted its possibilities? Converging conversations and Concernful Practices of Schooling Learning Teaching show themselves as the telling of narratives. Narrative Pedagogy gathers all pedagogies?past, extant, and future?into converging conversations by rethinking schooling, learning, and teaching as an intra-related, co-occurring invisible phenomenon. Relating as telling and listening reveals the richness of situated involvements as they meaningfully disclose and beckon: they simply ask to be listened to. NURSING EDUCATION “This book is a treasure-trove that calls out a voyage of discovery. Narrative Pedagogy is the realization of 20 years of hermeneutic phenomenological research by Nancy Diekelmann. In her scholarship she has attended to the listenings of students, teachers, and clinicians in nursing educational settings in order to move beyond the constrictions inherent in the traditions of schooling?those that pursue the production of students as trained outputs by teachers and clinicians, bound to particular sets of strategies. Narrative Pedagogy is the first nursing pedagogy from nursing research for nursing education. Both our eyes and our ears will be opened to a richer way of thinking.” -Pamela M. Ironside, PhD, R.N. F.A.A.N., Associate Professor, Director for Research in Nursing Education, University of Indiana School of Nursing

Exploring Language Pedagogy Through Second Language Acquisition Research

Author: Rod Ellis
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781135136024
Release Date: 2013-07-31
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics is a series of introductory level textbooks covering the core topics in Applied Linguistics, primarily designed for those beginning postgraduate studies, or taking an introductory MA course as well as advanced undergraduates. Titles in the series are also ideal for language professionals returning to academic study. The books take an innovative 'practice to theory' approach, with a 'back-to-front' structure. This leads the reader from real-world problems and issues, through a discussion of intervention and how to engage with these concerns, before finally relating these practical issues to theoretical foundations. Additional features include a glossary of key terms, and discussion questions. Following the back-to-front approach of the series, the book takes problematic issues in language pedagogy as its starting points. These are then examined in terms of second language acquisition. Each chapter begins with a look at the pedagogical proposals found in teacher guides and then asks ‘Do these proposals accord with what we know about how languages are acquired?’ Pedagogical topics covered include teaching methods, syllabus design, explicit instruction, comprehension versus production-based instruction, task-based instruction, authentic materials, the role of the learners’ first language in the classroom, error correction and catering for individual differences. Including a glossary of key terms and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter, and assuming no prior knowledge of second language acquisition, this is the ideal text for all students studying language teaching methods, language teacher education, English teaching methodology and second language acquisition modules in advanced undergraduate and postgraduate/graduate TESOL and Applied Linguistics courses.

Sie begleitet Sterbende in den letzten Wochen ihres Lebens. In ihrem Buch erzählt sie von wunderbaren Begegnungen und berührenden Gesprächen, die ihr Leben tiefgreifend verändert haben. Die Menschen, die sie trifft, stellen viel zu oft fest, dass sie ihre eigenen Wünsche hinten angestellt und zu viel gearbeitet haben, dass sie sich zu wenig Zeit für Familie und Freunde genommen und – vor allem – sich nicht erlaubt haben, glücklich zu sein. Es sind Erkenntnisse, die nachdenklich machen und in Erinnerung rufen, worauf es wirklich ankommt, wenn wir mit einem Lächeln aus dem Leben treten wollen. Für sich selbst hat Bronnie Ware nach diesen Erfahrungen entschieden, dass sie nur noch das macht, was sie wirklich will.

The books take an innovative ‘practice to theory’ approach, with a ‘back-to-front’ structure. This leads the reader from real-world problems and issues, through a discussion of intervention and how to engage with these concerns, before finally relating these practical issues to theoretical foundations. Additional features include tasks with commentaries, a glossary of key terms, and an annotated further reading section. Exploring English Language Teaching provides a single volume introduction to the field of ELT from an applied linguistics perspective. The book addresses four central themes within English language teaching: ‘Classroom interaction and management’; ‘Method, Postmethod and methodology’; ‘Learners’; and the ‘Institutional frameworks and social contexts’ of ELT. For each, the book identifies key dilemmas and practices, examines how teachers and other language teaching professionals might intervene and deal with these concerns, and explores how such issues link to and inform applied linguistic theory. This second edition has been extensively revised and updated to explore the latest practical developments and theoretical insights in the field of ELT. With new material, including expanded discussions of CLIL, the role of new technologies in ELT, and the teaching of large classes in difficult circumstances, and with an updated glossary and suggestions for additional reading, this is an indispensable textbook for language teachers and students studying in the areas of Applied Linguistics, Language Teacher Education, and ELT/TESOL.
