Investigating elementary school administrators' and teachers' perceptions on children with autism

Yumak, N. | Akgul, E.M.

Conference Object | 2010 | Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences2 ( 2 ) , pp.910 - 914

Autism is defined as a pervasive developmental disorder which effects child's communication, social interaction and behaviors. For some individuals oral communication is never established, because they can either not talk or refuse to talk. Education is the only proved way to help autistic individuals to cope with the social world around them. Therefore, there need to be schools, administrators and teachers to educate. The biggest problem about the education of individuals with autism is the lack of awareness in schools. This research study investigates elementary school administrators' and teachers' perceptions on children with aut . . .ism.

As English became the established language of science, technology and trade its use as the medium of instruction at tertiary education has increased in Turkey. The accelerated and sustained dominance of English has mainly led to dissatisfaction with English language proficiency level of learners and concerns about the future of the native language. This study aims to to gain a deeper understanding in the tertiary education students' perceptions regarding their English language proficiency and the future of their native language, explore the perceptions of undergraduate students and report on an integrated and problem solving based l . . .earning oriented case study at an English for Academic Purposes. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd Daha fazlası Daha az

WebQuests in EFL reading/writing classroom

Kocoglu, Z.

Conference Object | 2010 | Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences2 ( 2 ) , pp.3524 - 3527

Educators agree that writing can be a valuable tool for learning because when students read and write, they process and use that information to create a product. Educators also recognize that Internet resources can also be a valuable learning tool for students to find information and apply them in learning. Among many Web-based applications in education, WebQuests have become popular learning tool, which makes use of Internet resources. WebQuests are also increasingly becoming popular in English as a Foreign Language (EFL) reading and writing because they provide learners authentic and collaborative tasks. As students do the WebQues . . .t tasks, they find the information, read and write about it and complete the task. With this in mind, the researcher designed a university reading/writing course to integrate WebQuest tasks into EFL reading/writing instruction. The primary purpose of this study was therefore to compare the effects of WebQuest on Turkish EFL university students' reading and writing performance. One freshman class, as the experimental group, used WebQuest. Other class, as control group, received traditional teacher-led tasks. The findings indicated that the experimental group scored higher on reading scores than did the control group. On the other hand, both groups scored equally on writing scores. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.

The role of teacher talk in young learners' language process

Inceçay, G.

Conference Object | 2010 | Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences2 ( 2 ) , pp.277 - 281

In recent years there has been numerous research reporting on the characteristics of teacher talk and the role of it with regard to learners' learning a second or foreign language. In the present study 16 Turkish young learners of English as a foreign language and one Turkish EFL teacher participated. Data were collected by means of audio-recording and then they were analyzed by Conversation Analysis Methodology. As a result of this study several characteristics of the participating teacher's language use were identified. The identified categories were analyzed under two headings; construction and obstruction. Direct error correctio . . .n, content feedback, prompting, extended wait time, repairing are identified as the sub categories of constructive teacher talk. On the contrary, turn completion, teacher echo, extended use of initiation-response-feedback turn taking are the subcategories of the obstructive talk. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.

Open source software in teaching mathematics

Kusbeyzi, I. | Hacinliyan, A. | Aybar, O.O.

Conference Object | 2011 | Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences15 , pp.769 - 771

Open source operating systems and software have become popular in education. In this work an approach to teaching mathematics that emphasizes the usefulness of computer algebra, plotting, visualization and array oriented packages for educational purposes is introduced. Open source document preparation and authoring software can aid in the preparation of courseware especially in schools with lack of computer software support. A wide range of open source applications for educational purposes can be downloaded and installed from School Forge. The software introduced in this study is under the GNU Public License and free for individual . . .purposes. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd Daha fazlası Daha az

A network representation of households by health exclusion, poverty, and unemployment

Rende, S. | Rende, D. | Baysal, N.

Conference Object | 2011 | Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences22 , pp.69 - 79

Social exclusion, emphasized in the European Social Agenda, presents an interesting case study on the discussion of universal vs. means-tested social policies. To understand the conditions under which universal policies may have an advantage over meanstested policies, we propose a method of network representation in which partitions are detected by background characteristics of the households. Using non-relational household level data from three countries, we map the association between exclusion from health care, unemployment and poverty. Our results show that households are less likely to form homogeneous partitioning by poverty a . . .nd health care exclusion profiles, compared to the partitioning formed by poverty and unemployment characteristics. The results suggest that in cases where identifying beneficiaries is difficult, illustrated by heterogeneous partitioning, universal coverage offers an advantage over means-tested social policies. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd Daha fazlası Daha az

Foreign language learners' beliefs about grammar instruction and error correction

Incecay, V. | Dollar, Y.K.

Conference Object | 2011 | Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences15 , pp.3394 - 3398

The aim of this study was to investigate the beliefs of foreign language learners in relation to the role of grammar teaching and error correction. For the purposes of the study 26 students at a private university responded to a questionnaire (Loewen et al., 2009). As a result of the analysis, it can be said that foreign language learners believed grammar was an important aspect of the language. However, they held beliefs about it to be taught in a more communicative way. On the other hand, participants thought that error correction was useful in language learning process. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.

An assessment of the auditory speech perceptual skills of young Turkish learners of English: Perceptual Assimilation Model

Komurcu, B. | Yildiz, Y.

Conference Object | 2011 | Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences15 , pp.3511 - 3515

This paper examines the perceptual capacities of Turkish learners of English in differentiating native and non-native consonantal minimal pairs. Both age groups (i.e. four and six-year olds) performed better in word-initial place distinction. The six-year-olds outperformed the four-year-olds for place and voice distinction, whereas the four-year-olds performed better with word-final non-native voice distinctions. This supports the notion of 'younger is better', since their perceptual skills are not yet constrained by their first language parameters. This paper will consider the wider linguistic and pedagogical implications of the da . . .ta, and assess the applicability of the Perceptual Assimilation Model (Best, 1994). © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd Daha fazlası Daha az

The nature of preservice mathematics teacher's knowledge of students

Kilic, H.

Conference Object | 2010 | Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences9 , pp.1096 - 1100

Teachers need to be equipped with various knowledge and skills to establish and maintain effective teaching environments that enable them to enhance students' understanding and learning. Knowledge of students is one of the components of teachers' professional knowledge and it is defined as teachers' knowledge of what mathematical concepts are difficult for students to grasp, which concepts students typically have misconceptions about, possible sources of students' errors, and how to eliminate those difficulties and misconceptions. The purpose of the study was to investigate the nature of preservice mathematics teachers' knowledge of . . . students. Six preservice teachers participated in the study and the data were collected in the forms of observations, interviews and written documents. The findings revealed that preservice teachers had difficulty in both identifying the source of students' misconceptions, and errors and generating effective ways to eliminate such misconceptions. They frequently failed to recognize what conceptual knowledge the students were lacking and they inclined to address students' errors by telling how to carry out the procedure or apply the rule to solve the given problem correctly. Therefore, preservice teachers should be given opportunities 1) to take content-specific courses that they have opportunity to discuss fundamental high school mathematics concepts in detail to gain a solid understanding of how mathematical concepts are related and why mathematical rules and procedures work and 2) to analyze an act of teaching by watching videos of classrooms or discussing a student work and classroom cases to determine how to address students' errors and misconceptions. © 2010 Published by Elsevier Ltd Daha fazlası Daha az

The effects of instruction of graphic organizers in terms of students' attitudes towards reading in English

Mede, E.

Conference Object | 2010 | Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences2 ( 2 ) , pp.322 - 325

One of the fundamental problems many English language teachers face with is enhancing L2 learners' reading ability and maintaining their interest in reading. Most L2 learners have certain difficulties while reading in English since they are not aware of the effective ways of reading and understanding a text, which might cause resistance and affect their attitudes towards reading in English. Thus, research emphasizes the importance of instruction on graphic organizers (GOs) to promote reading in a second (L2) or foreign (FL) language (Fly, Jean & Hunter, 1988; Ellis, 2004; Amin, 2004). The present study investigates the possible effe . . .cts of instruction on four concrete graphic organizers (GOs) on students' application of those visual displays in a text, and examines their attitudes towards reading in an EFL classroom. Data coming from pre and post questionnaires, focus group interviews and think alouds revealed congruence between instruction on graphic organizers and learners' attitudes towards reading in an EFL classroom. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
