Contemporary Second Language Assessment

Contemporary Second Language Assessment | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it

Includes chapters on key aspects of second language assessment such as test construct, diagnosis, exam design, and the growing range of public policy, social and ethical issues. Each of the contributors is an expert in their area; some are established names while others are talented newcomers to the field.
The chapters present new research or perspectives on traditional concerns such as test quality; fairness and bias; the testing of different language skills; the needs of different groups of examinees, including English language learners who need to take content tests in English; and the use of language assessments for gate-keeping purposes. The volume demonstrates how language assessment is informed by and engages with neighbouring areas of applied linguistics such as technology and language corpora.

Whose Language Are You Learning?

Whose Language Are You Learning? | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
There’s no such thing as a single language; meaning, there’s no objective object we can point to as “the German language,” or any language for that matter. It’s all in our collective heads. It’s not even like the metric system, for which there is a concrete, foundational “meter bar” and “prototype kilogram” locked up France’s International Bureau of Weights and Measures to which we can refer. Language is a fluid, organic, constantly changing beast, and there’s no “original” for any language; there’s only the accepted “standard” version.
So perhaps it’s more accurate to say that it is important to know whose language you’re learning.

Advances in Spanish as a Heritage Language

Bringing together contributions from some of the leading experts in the field of Spanish as a Heritage Language, this volume aims to provide an in-depth understanding of current and emerging trends in research and praxis. To this end, the volume is divided into three thematic units. The first unit surveys the study of Spanish heritage speaker bilingualism from a formal/theoretical linguistic point of view. The second unit focuses on issues shaping the current state of affairs in heritage language education. Finally, the third unit maps out future lines of development within heritage language instruction. The wide topical scope within this single volume will undoubtedly provide a valuable resource for researchers, students, and professionals working in different areas of Spanish as a heritage language.

Complexity in Classroom Foreign Language Learning Motivation 

Complexity in Classroom Foreign Language Learning Motivation  | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
This book explores how complex systems theory can contribute to the understanding of classroom language learner motivation through an extended examination of one particular, situated research project. Working from the lived experience of the participants, the study describes how action research methods were used to explore the dynamic conditions operating in a foreign language classroom in Japan. The book draws attention to the highly personalised and individual, yet equally co-formed nature of classroom foreign language learning motivation and to the importance of agency and emotions in language learning. It presents an extended illustration of the applicability of complex systems theory for research design and process in SLA and its narrative approach shines light upon the evolving nature of research and role of the researcher. The study will be a valuable resource for practitioners, researchers and postgraduate students interested in classroom language teaching and learning, especially those with a focus on motivation among learners.

There are many other ways to show comprehension while reading than just translation.
 While reading a chapter in a novel, translation should only occur when there is a break down in communication, as Kristy Placido says.  Here is a list of other ways/activities for students to show comprehension while reading and to break up the reading routine.

Rethinking Second Language Learning

Rethinking Second Language Learning | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
This book evaluates a project where formal classroom learning of a second language was supplemented with informal, natural interactions with older native speakers of the target language, delivering a number of pedagogical and societal benefits. The authors introduce a model of intergenerational, intercultural encounters which aims to promote the use of community language resources; enrich the experiences of young learners; foster greater understanding between generations; break down cultural stereotypes; encourage appreciation of different cultures and enhance the quality of life and community engagement of older people with a bi/multilingual background. It draws on theories of language acquisition, discourse analysis and psychosocial perspectives to propose a model of language learning for students that can be used for any language or locality. It is therefore an essential resource for graduate students, researchers and language teachers as well as for education, aged and youth care policy makers, practitioners and community services workers who are interested in innovative language pedagogy.

Working Memory and Second Language Learning by Zhisheng (Edward) Wen - Multilingual Matters | Channel View Publications

Working Memory and Second Language Learning by Zhisheng (Edward) Wen - Multilingual Matters | Channel View Publications | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
This book introduces an approach to understanding and measuring working memory components and functions in second language learning, processing and development. It presents comprehensive, thorough and updated reviews of relevant literatures from cognitive sciences and applied linguistics. Drawing on multidisciplinary research, the book advocates a conceptual framework for integrating working memory theories with second language acquisition theories. An innovative theoretical model is also presented, which illuminates research studies investigating the distinctive roles of phonological and executive working memory as they relate to specific L2 learning domains, skills and processes. Theoretical and methodological implications of this integrative perspective are further elaborated and discussed within the specific realms of L2 task-based performance and language aptitude research.

Word-Formation - Volume 5 Word-Formation | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it

This handbook comprises an in-depth presentation of the state of the art in word-formation. The five volumes contain 207 articles written by leading international scholars. The XVI chapters of the handbook provide the reader, in both general articles and individual studies, with a wide variety of perspectives: word-formation as a linguistic discipline (history of science, theoretical concepts), units and processes in word-formation, rules and restrictions, semantics and pragmatics, foreign word-formation, language planning and purism, historical word-formation, word-formation in language acquisition and aphasia, word-formation and language use, tools in word-formation research. The final chapter comprises 74 portraits of word-formation in the individual languages of Europe and offers an innovative perspective. These portraits afford the first overview of this kind and will prove useful for future typological research. This handbook will provide an essential reference for both advanced students and researchers in word-formation and related fields within linguistics.

Would you rather…? | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it

My Spanish 4 classes have been acquiring Spanish with comprehensible input methods all along, and they are GOOD. They are PROFICIENT. And guess what? We are not done. Just as I myself continue flooding my own free time with target language to increase/maintain my proficiency, they need a constant push to acquire more. However, they can communicate! And they enjoy using their acquired language to communicate. It is fun and satisfying! Output has a role and to me, this is it!

A Whole New Meaning For ABC

A Whole New Meaning For ABC | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it
Do your grades paint a picture of the language your students have developed this year? Do they communicate how well they followed directions? Perhaps this is something that you haven’t thought about. As an administrator and working with many principals I can tell you it is an important distinction. Now or as school closes is the time to reflect over the year and the messages we send on the permanent records of our students to advocate for or against language learning. I say it like a broken record, every day in our classrooms we send messages to kids about who they are as language learners. Grades, send the biggest, loudest message. So what do they say?

Teachers' professional reasoning about their pedagogical use of technology

This study focused on teachers' reasoning about the use of technology in practice. Both teachers' professional reasoning and their technology use were investigated. Through video cases, 157 teachers demonstrated their technology use in practice and commented on the reasoning behind their actions. Results show that most technology use was intended to strengthen both pedagogy and subject matter, or else pedagogy alone. Reasons addressed making learning attractive for students, realising educational goals and facilitating the learning process. The majority of teachers' technology use in practice shows aspects of the knowledge transfer model of teaching. Most technology tools were used to support a learning activity; the use of technology was essential in only a few video cases. About half of the video cases showed alignment between reasoning and practice. The results contribute to better understanding of how teachers reason professionally about their technology use.

Evaluar para aprender

Evaluar para aprender | Todoele - Enseñanza y aprendizaje del español | Scoop.it

No es lo mismo evaluar que examinar, ni evaluar que calificar. Evaluar con intencio´n formativa no es igual a medir ni a calificar, ni tan siquiera a corregir. Evaluar tampoco es clasificar ni es examinar ni aplicar tests (Juan Manuel Álvarez Méndez). Hemos confundido, en demasiadas ocasiones el acto de aprender con el de aprobar exámenes. Aprender no es aprobar exámenes.
