Since languaging consists of a simultaneous process of continuous becoming of ourselves and of our language practices, as individuals interact and make meaning on the world (Canagarajah, 2001; García & Li Wei, 2014), the way people speak indicates who they are. Language is part of a social process which is being constructed and reconstructed between humans and their environments. Consequently, equity among languages and those who speak them should be pursued in both educational and social settings. Translanguaging has become a popular language practice in recent years. It enables to go beyond traditional academic disciplines and conventional structures which perceive language as structuralist-only, mentalist-only or social-only.
Author’s commonly entice readers by using complex vocabulary and extremely detailed descriptions, also known as, diction. Readers will be more engaged if they can imagine the setting and characters. Making them put themselves in the same situation. In the short stories “The Scarlet Ibis” and “The Dangerous Game” and “Harrison Bergeron” the authors use diction to engage the readers.
The audience can have a monumental effect on the rhetor and the discourse. The audience is whom the rhetor works with in order to achieve a solution or conclusion (Grant-Davie 270). The purpose of discourse is the “discussion of a single subject by multiple rhetor and audiences” (Grant-Davie 265). Clearly, the audience is a vital factor in rhetorical situations. Not only do the readers play an essential part, they can also play many parts.
Certain areas of the brain are thought to be associated with different functions. For example, the basal ganglia is responsible for motor functions but studies have shown the basal ganglia is associated with a subset of figurative language (Speedie, Wertman, T’air, & Heilman, 1993). Shibata et al. (2007) mentioned that due to the poor temporal resolution of fMRIs, it is difficult to interpret if metaphor processing starts with validating semantic deviation followed by semantic coherence or if the processes are performed concurrently. This issue has to be clarified using other techniques with better temporal
By providing a hierarchy of levels, this taxonomy can assist teachers in designing performance tasks, making questions for discussing with learners, and providing feedback on student work. This resource is divided into different levels each with Keywords that exemplify the level and questions that focus on that same critical thinking level. Questions for Critical Thinking can be used in the classroom to develop all levels of thinking within the cognitive domain. The results will be improved attention to detail, increased comprehension and prolonged problem solving skills. One way to challenge learners in the classroom is through the use of Bloom’s Taxonomy.
The chunking theory has a place in second language acquisition, albeit limited in certain instances that will not assure desirable learning outcomes when applied exclusively. Chunking plays a crucial role in mastering grammar for the second language. The essence of chunks offers an explanation on how human beings are able to cope with cognitive limitations associated with memory, learning rates and attention to meet the demands of the environment. This follows that it is challenging for the second language learner to master complex inflectional pattern sets. These challenges occur because second language learners tend to fail picking up large adequate phrasal chunks.
The narrative told through storytelling is one of the few human traits that are truly universal (Hsu, 2008). This universal trait is seen historically across all cultures to fascinate and engage us even if we know they are untrue (Boyd, 2009). In this essay, I will discuss how themes, events, plot and diegesis are the fundamental elements that make up a narrative. According to Jeremy (Hsu,
It allows students to focus on one aspect of a situation at a time and gain a deeper understanding of the issues that arise from that perspective. It also gives the opportunity to develop new and creative ideas as well as to be judgmental, logical and emotional. The six thinking hats have different colors and each color represent
This will help students who don’t always respond to written materials. They can connect students with their own environment and culture, as well as with other cultures. Teaching with pictures creates a direct, sensory connection between learners and their subjects that results in new levels of interest and attention. Thus it also creates students with higher levels of visual literacy.
Language is not just a mean of stating or assigning meaning, it also suggests a look into the culture of the talkers; therefore, it presents itself as a remarkable topic to scholars. Many of the world's bilingual societies produce dissertations that comprise the transaction of two or more languages. This sort of discourse has
They put forth that learning is to a substantial extent, based on information presented in a sequential and organized manner to students. This thought enhances meaningful learning, comprehension and retaining of the acquired
According to Ellis (2003), this classification is more centered around and allows for the theories of rhetoric that are influential in differentiating different discourse categories in terms of their structure and linguistic properties including narrative, instructions, description, reports, etc. These features often employ a linguistic (often functional) syllabus and appear to entail tasks creating chances and capacity for the free production of language that has been previously presented and practiced. As Ellis (2003) revealed, tasks of this category foster ‘task-supported’ teaching. Further, Ellis highlighted that influencing both the negotiation of meaning and the quality of learner production is one merit of applying a rhetorical classification,
