Autonomy Approach BERTRAMS
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
The Autonomy Approach presents an important departure from the theoretical discussions which underpin the majority of work on learner autonomy. It introduces a practical perspective to self-directed language learning (teachable-learnable activities rooted in principles of learning), which draws on aspects of study skills and strategies as well as a variety of approaches, namely differentiated, individualised, self-directed, self-access and open-access learning. With the Autonomy Approach, emphasis is placed on students being supported in class to learn at their own pace, away from the classroom - in other words, self-directing their own learning. The authors examine and explain the theory behind metacognitive knowledge and skills, and support this with an extensive sequence of activities for the teacher and the learner to use - to help learners take the development of their language learning into their own hands. The activities in this book aim not to teach a language but, rather, to raise awareness of different aspects of language learning, to encourage learners (and teachers) to share, select and try out activities, and to reflect on the effectiveness of what they have tried. The activities are suitable for developing a self-directed learning course or for supplementing an existing course. This book is intended for: Language teachers and learning advisors; trainers involved in professional development; and materials developers for self-access centres or distance education. The Autonomy Approach contains three distinctive parts which focus in turn on theory, practice and development: Part A offers a detailed breakdown of the philosophy behind the Autonomy Approach. Clear rationales are established for promoting self-directed learning, and teachers are invited to reflect on the benefits of learners taking more responsibility for their own learning. Part B is packed with step-by-step activities to support learners through the development, implementation and modification of an emerging individualised learning plan. Part C promotes a deeper understanding of the Autonomy Approach, and includes strategies to develop professional practice for us, as language learning facilitators, to learn and grow from our own experience.
Special Needs Language and Literacy Assessment Handbook Hodder & Stoughton
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Language and literacy difficulties are common, have multiple aspects and various causes. Some pupils causing concern may be dyslexic - others are not. This highly practical handbook will enable non-specialist teachers in primary and secondary schools to: - use a range of reliable techniques and resources to assess pupils' difficulties and needs - inform effective remediation and support strategies - monitor progress - make appropriate IEP recommendations and referrals where necessary. Starting from the basics of standardised assessment and what test scores mean, the authors look systematically at speech and language, phonological awareness and phonics, reading and writing, and the range of difficulties that children may experience, at all ages. A further chapter outlines the special arrangements which are available for national tests and public exams. Giving just the essential theory, the emphasis throughout is on what to do, how to do it, and then what to do next. Clear and accessible, with a focus on the essentials, this book will help new SENCOs, inclusion managers and support staff to make effective use of the assessment resources available to non-specialist teachers. The concise 'summary' style, photocopiable checklists and resource listings will also make it a useful quick reference for more experienced Learning Support staff. '...an exceedingly useful resource for both primary and secondary ...It provides key guidelines for observing and assessing learners, and useful strategies for teaching...clearly expressed.'

Outreach: Innovative Practices for Archives and Special Collections explores how archives of different sizes and types are reaching out to new potential users and increasing awareness of programs and collections. The book features twelve case studies that demonstrate ideas that can be transferred into many other settings. Some of the practices described in the case studies rely primarily on technology and the Web to interact with the public, while others are centered on face-to-face activities. The case studies featured are 1.The Oregon Archives Crawl: Engaging New Users and Advocates 2.Moved by the Spirit: Opportunistic Promotion of the Hamilton Family Seance Collection 3.Working Within the Law: Public Programming and Continuing Education 4.Staying Connected: Engaging Alumni and Students to Digitize the Carl "Pappy" Fehr Choral Music Collection 5."Pin"pointing Success: Assessing the Value of Pinterest and Historypin for Special Collections Outreach 6.Creating a New Learning Center: Designing a Space to Support Multiple Outreach Goals 7."Wikipedia is made of people!": Revelations from Collaborating with the World's Most Popular Encyclopedia 8.2 1 Revolutions: New Art from Old Objects 9.Happy Accidents and Unintended Consequences: How We Named Our Tribble 10.Navigating Nightingale: Creating an App Out of Archives 11.DIY History: Redesigning a Platform for a Transcription Crowdsourcing Initiative 12.Taking Preservation to the People: Educating the Public About Personal Digital Archiving All twelve case studies look at outreach as identifying the organization's intended audience, building new ways of reaching them, and helping the organization achieve its mission. Each also reflects a philosophy of experimentation that is perhaps the most critical ingredient for any organization interested in developing its own "innovative" practices. This volume will be useful to those working in archives and special collections as well as other cultural heritage organizations, and provides ideas ranging from those that require long-term planning and coordination to those that could be immediately implemented. It also provides students and educators in archives, library, and public history graduate programs a resource for understanding the variety of ways people conduct outreach in the field today and the kinds of strategies archivists are using to attract new users to collections.
