Michael Swan | Teaching grammar - does grammar teaching work?

Despite all the work that has been done on first- and second-language acquisition, we know surprisingly little about how languages are learnt, and even less about how they can best be taught. Theories come and go, assertions are plentiful, facts are in short supply.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, November 1, 9:53 AM
I read this article closely and, if my count is correct, the word "librarian" is only mentioned once. Don't take that to mean this isn't well-written and worth your time to read! The suggestions are solid and the author brings up some excellent points about reading and how we can support readers. I firmly believe that if we truly want to shift this trend then we need to address the issue of disappearing librarians and underfunded libraries.

Biographic Narrative Method

Rare Oslo Opportunity: Training in the Biographic-Narrative Interview Method (BNIM) 2-days intensive in November; together with overall introduction to BNIM and experiences of a BNIM interpretive panel. Research interviewing for (auto)biographic narratives is being used more and more in sociology and psychology but also in applied areas such as health, education, organisational relations, etc. However, it is hard to get well-developed full training in using open-narrative interviewing and reconstructing cases and their histories both systematically and sensitively. One method is BNIM (the biographic narrative interpretive method) which has carefully designed clear and systematic protocols and training for both the three-session BNIM interviewing and the two-track BNIM case-interpretation, describing and interpreting lived experience. Tom Wengraf is author of Qualitative Research Interviewing: biographic narrative and semi-structured method (Sage Publications). For the last 20 years, he has been using and researching this biographic narrative interpretive method (BNIM), training and supporting other researchers in its use, and publishing frequently in this area. He is a founding trustee of the Association for Psychosocial Studies and was formerly Senior Lecturer in Sociology and Social Research Methods at Middlesex University and an Honorary Research Fellow at the Birkbeck Institute of Social Research, London. He is running four BNIM events in Oslo in October and November. · There is a 2-day full interview training intensive in Oslo on November 17th and 18th at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO). It will be a small group of no more than 10 trainees: the fee is 300 euros for the two days, including materials and further free tuition afterwards. · For those interested in observing or participating in a 4-5 person BNIM interpretive panel, there will be BNIM interpretive panels the 13th and 14th of October and on November 15th respectively, each of a different type of interpretation. · There will also be a general lecture-presentation of BNIM interviewing and interpretation overall on October 13-14th. If you might be interested in any of the above, whether you can attend any of the events or not, further details can be obtained from tom.wengraf@gmail.com, as can a free BNIM Quick Outline Sketch. All comments and questions happily received.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, September 23, 1:26 PM
I love that the folks at TeachThought shared one of Mia MacMeekin's fabulous infographics - this one all about student-centered instructional methods. Shifting the instruction from teacher/curriculum-centered to student-centered is much harder than you might think. It requires an ability of the teacher to let go a little bit but it (as the article states) shortens the distance from student to understanding. If I were still in a building library, I would print this poster-sized and check them off. Better yet, use it to set your SMART goals for the year by shifting at least one collaborative learning unit to a student-centered approach. Share this with your teachers!

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, December 6, 10:06 AM
If you're someone that likes to start with the "why" this article will get you well on your way to reimagining your learning spaces. I love that author Melina Uncapher talks about the scientific research behind learning spaces and why it's important to think differently about the way they are designed. Of course, if you have a library with no outside windows or other barriers, you will have to be creative in coming up with a work-around. BUT - if you have a reluctant administrator or one that wants to know why you should bother with updating/changing your space, this is a good place to start. Enjoy!
