Even the way the characters speak is very different than now. They used to speak more respectfully to adults, and even the younger kids used a larger vocabulary. If this book was replaced in the curriculum, it would deprive the students of gaining new insight on their language and how to speak. Most importantly, this story portrays how segregation, racism, and prejudice are for the ignorant and uneducated. Even though this book was written in the 1960’s, while people were fighting for equal rights, it still showed us how wrong the people were at handling issues regarding same rights for whites and African-Americans.

Developing Guidelines to Design Gestures for Teaching Chinese as a Second Language

...Gestures for Teaching Chinese as a Second Language From the Perspectives of Kinesics and Linguistics Yihan Zhou Seton Hall University Abstract According to kinesics and linguistic theories, this project investigates what parts are involved in making gestures and how gestures carry meanings. A wide range of body parts are involved in making a gesture. According to David Mcneill, the physical movements acquire meaning by iconics, metaphorics, deictics, and beats. The project also discovers an etymological way to connect gestures to Chinese vocabulary. Based on the findings, the project further develops some guidelines to design gestures for teaching Chinese. They are making easy movements, identifying teaching content, making gestures understandable to your students, and applying gestures into teaching. In the end, the project applies the guidelines in designing activities for teaching Chinese pronunciation, vocabulary, character, and culture. Keywords: guidelines, gestures, teaching Chinese, kinesics, linguistics 1. Introduction 2.1 Background Gestures are common body movements: teachers instruct with gestures, referees in soccer game use gestures, people greet each other with gestures. Then what are gestures?

Manifesto Writing Styles

...reading Stranger Than Fiction, by Chuck Palahniuk, I was asked what I believed good writing was. I cannot say that I have ever been asked this question by a professor before. Students are told to read so many books, and some we like, but most we do not. Maybe it was the tone of the book we did not enjoy, or the font size being so small that it made us sigh in disgust every time we flipped the page. But, what do we think good writing is? Based on what I have read, I believe good writing involves vivid imagery, uncommon vocabulary use, a mapped out plan, and short chapters; however, good writing cannot be accomplished if the author changes their point of view. Why do people go on hikes, or climb rocks, or want offices with windows? For the view. Vivid imagery brings writing to life. As readers, we want to feel as if we are in the scene, feeling what the characters are feeling. Stephanie Meyer does a great job of this in her novel Twilight. Edward brings the main character, Bella, to a secret meadow: a sunny and beautiful heaven away from the rainy, overcast misery of the town they live in. When she is first brought to this meadow in the depths of the Washington forests, she illustrates that, “The large oak trees reached heights that I couldn’t even begin to imagine. The glistening sun slowly shown through the trees’ infinite branches creating a delicate warmth that I loved, instilling a reminder of my former home, Phoenix…I felt honored to learn that he loved me enough to......

Short Stories

...Encouraging/developing critical thinking 11 8. Conclusion 12 References 14 1.) Introduction: In this paper I would like to discuss the advantages that teaching the short story as a major part of a teaching concept brings to the EFL classroom and present several example tasks of how to integrate short stories into ones „teaching portfolio“. Whereas some people might believe that teaching the short story benefits students only from a linguistic standpoint, those people really do not get the big picture. Yes, there are obvious linguistic benefits you can draw from teaching short stories, but the most important factor is motivation. This hales from the structure of short stories themselves. As almost all of them have a beginning, a main part and an ending, students are most likely encouraged to read the story all the way through, to see what the outcome might be. Sure, the structure of most novels or plays might be similar, but the length of the short story is the big advantage. If a student knows, that he does not have to read 200 and more pages to finish the story but rather a maximum of ten to fifteen pages, he is more likely to stay motivated. Another factor to favor the short story as teaching material is time itself. With the use of a short story one can fill two to three teaching units and leave plenty of room for discussing the topic afterwards, whereas novels, etc. might take up to eight to ten...

Epithets

...Expressiveness can be distinguished at all levels of the language. The expressive means of the language are phonetic, morphological, word-building, lexical, phraseological and syntactical forms that exist in the language as a system for the purpose of logical and emotional intensification of the utterance. expressive means exist on all the levels of the language. The most powerful are phonetic expressive means including stress, whispering, high/fall alliteration. Morphological expressive means include the use of second and third persons. Word-building expressive means - the use of deminuative suffixes, such as -y (frequently used). On the lexical level we distinguish neutral vocabulary and exressive vocabulary. [to die - to go West, to work - to labour, fear - horror]. Proverbs also belong to the expressive vocabulary. On the syntactical level we distinguish between the inversion and repetition. A stylistic device is a conscious and intentional intencification of some typical structural or semantic property of a language unit (word, word combination or sentence) promoted to a generalised stater and thus become a generative model. stylistic devices are built according to a fixed model [a nice table, a tasty table, an angry table; a tasty table - a case of metonomy, an angry table - a transfered epithet]. Expressive means are trite and frequently employed. Stylistic devices are geniune to a certain extent. Stylistic devices belong to the language in use. Expressive means......

Gamers devised these words to create a special kind of an in-game communication.

Action Plan for Teacher Intervention

...Action Plan for Teacher Intervention Developing an action plan for a student in a particular content area is not a simple task. The teacher must first assess the student to see where his/her weaknesses are and then must decide what the best course of action would be to strengthen those weaknesses. Given the opportunity to observe and assess a kindergarten student, I was able to conclude where his weaknesses were in reading and develop a four week action plan that would help him to get on the right track to achieving his academic goals in reading. The components that needed to be addressed were: phonemic awareness, word study and fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. The action plan will include all learning goals, informative assessments and summative assessments. Action Plan for Teacher Intervention Learning Goals Activities Informal Assessments Summative Assessments Phonemic Awareness -Learn beginning and ending of Phonemes in words -Decode words in context and in isolation by applying common letter-sound correspondences -Combine sounds from letters and common spelling patterns -Use common syllabication patterns to decode words Use objects to have student identify beginning and ending sounds of words Use chanting or claps to identify word sounds of objects Play a signal game with a group and give separate signals for the beginning and ending sounds when they hear it Use index cards to help the student visualize and hear the beginning and ending...

Reading Comprehension

...I. Introduction Reading comprehension is the ability to read text, process it and understand its meaning. An individual's ability to comprehend text is influenced by their traits and skills, one of which is the ability to make inferences. If word recognition is difficult, students use too much of their processing capacity to read individual words, which interferes with their ability to comprehend what is read. There are a number of approaches to improve reading comprehension, including improving one's vocabulary and reading strategies (en. Wikipedia.org) It is defined as the level of understanding of a text/message. This understanding comes from the interaction between the words that are written and how they trigger knowledge outside the text/message. Comprehension is a "creative, multifaceted process" dependent upon four language skills: phonology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. Proficient reading depends on the ability to recognize words quickly and effortlessly. It is also determined by an individual's cognitive development, which is "the construction of thought processes". Some people learn through education or instruction and others through direct experiences. There are specific traits that determine how successful an individual will comprehend text, including prior knowledge about the subject, well developed language, and the ability to make inferences. Having the skill to monitor comprehension is a factor: "Why is this important?" and "Do I need to read the......

Styllistics

...Functional Styles of the English Language Functional styles (FS) are the subsystems of language, each subsystem having its own peculiar features in what concern vocabulary means, syntactical constructions, and even phonetics. The appearance and existence of FS is connected with the specific conditions of communication in different spheres of human life. FS differ not only by the possibility or impossibility of using some elements but also due to the frequency of their usage. For example, some terms can appear in the colloquial style but the possibility of its appearance is quite different form the possibility to meet it in an example of scientific style. The classification of FS is a very complicated problem, that is why we will consider ideas of I.V.Arnold and I.R. Galperin, bearing in mind that Galperin treats functional styles as patterns of the written variety of language thus excluding colloquial FS. Both scholars agree that each FS can be recognized by one or more leading features. But Galperin pays more attention to the coordination of language means and stylistic devices whereas Arnold connects the specific features of each FS with its peculiarities in the sphere of communication. According to I.R. Galperin, a functional style of language is a system of interrelated language means which serves a definite aim in communication. A functional style should be regarded as the product of a certain concrete task set by the sender of the message. ......
