Interesting - I think we all agree that the use of corpora can be great for a focus on form, though learners should be taught how to use this resource effectively.

26 Sentence Stems For Higher-Level Discussion In The Classroom | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it

"Meaningful conversation can make learning more personal, immediate, and emotional.

During meaningful conversations, students are forced to be accountable for their positions, to listen, to analyze opposing perspectives, and to adapt their thinking on the fly."

Some students find it difficult to engage in higher-level thinking. This post shares 26 sentence stems that may help students with participate in discussion and allow them to more easily engage in higher-level thinking. The prompts are split into the following sections:

* Clarifying

* Paraphrasing

* Agreeing

* Disagreeing

* Building upon

* Summarizing

The post provides a list of the prompts as well as an image. You might consider posting these on a wall or sharing a copy with your students.

Sue Alexander's curator insight, March 15, 2014 12:39 PM

This will be so helpful in our Socratic Seminars!

David Baker's curator insight, March 15, 2014 3:06 PM

Sentence stems are exceptional for helping students process thinking.  Sheltered instruction (SIOP) strategies are excellent for helping students understand and make personal meaning of learning.  Stems with a targeted purpose can help teachers to use them most purposefully.

10 Reasons Why We Need Research Literacy, Not Scare Columns

10 Reasons Why We Need Research Literacy, Not Scare Columns | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it

The children and media research community has been buzzing with frustration at the viral circulation of Cris Rowan's Huffington Post column, "10 Reasons Why Handheld Devices Should Be Banned for Children Under the Age of 12." The piece pretty well defines "hack-ademic" writing, in which an author throws lots of learned-sounding terms and citations at a lay reader, while obscuring misinterpretations and fuzzy logic. Here are 10 reasons why Rowan's column is flawed.
