The Intersection of Library Learning and Second-Language Learning

Theory and Practice

Language learning and library learning in a university setting are closely related endeavors that intersect at various times and locations, and with various teachers and learners. This book is an examination of how these intersections are experienced by language learners. Its aim is to explore the two types of learning to help sustain and develop the learning in both areas. The Intersection of Library Learning and Second-Language Learning: Theory and Practice is aimed at practitioners, both librarians and language instructors, and describes everyday scenarios which will resonate with academic librarians and language instructors. It presents practical experiences and accompanies them with a consideration of the literature of both librarianship and language education. It reviews and evaluates professional practices employed by working librarians and language instructors in their dealings with international students. Considerations of the intersections between language learning and library learning are placed within a theoretical framework of learner autonomy. This framework offers librarians and language instructors methods and practices that enable students to take control of their learning in the areas of both language learning and library learning. A concluding chapter offers ways to connect the framework of learner autonomy to settings outside that of a university context.

Language learning, in contrast to library learning, is a widely accepted term in the
theory and practice of language education. It invokes a complete array of differing
conceptions as to its meaning. In fact, the question, what is language learning, ...

Second Language Learning Through Drama

Practical Techniques and Applications

Drama is increasingly being recognised as a valuable pedagogy for language learning as it can harness children‘s imaginations and stimulate their desire to communicate. Second Learning Language through Drama draws on current theories of additional and foreign language learning and illustrates through practical case studies how drama can be used to support the four key skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Drawing on the work of an international group of practitioners who are all highly experienced in using drama for the purpose of second language learning, the book clearly explains key drama conventions and strategies and outlines the innovative ways they have been used to create enjoyable and stimulating classroom activities that allow for multiple ways of learning. Throughout the book the emphasis is on making language learning accessible and relevant to children and young people through creative, physically active and playful approaches. The strategies described are all highly flexible and readily adaptable to different teaching contexts. Specific themes include: Using stories and drama to motivate learners at all levels Drama, language learning and identity Assessment opportunities through process drama Issues of language learning and cultural empowerment Digital storytelling Film & drama aesthetics Second Language Learning through Drama will be of great interest to those studying on undergraduate and postgraduate courses and will serve as a highly valuable text to practitioners looking to incorporate the approaches described into their lessons and classroom activities.

This chapter makes an argument for the power of drama as a pedagogic tool for
additional language learners. In particular, it focuses on the relationship between
specific aspects of identity and additional language learning and identifies why ...

System Leadership In Practice

But there is not yet any detailed analysis of its emergence in practice. This book fills that void by bringing in-depth analysis to a term on the lips of many in the educational world.

An Elementary Study of the Brain, Based on the Dissection of the Brain of the Sheep

This antique text contains a very simple introduction to the anatomy of the human brain for the beginner. It uses the brain of the sheep because of its general availability, relative simplicity, and practical identity to that of man. This text was intended primarily as a laboratory manual for the student, and briefly reviews the development of the brain, with particular reference to the nervous structure and its evolution. This text was first published in 1913, and, as such, contains information that is somewhat dated. This text will, however, be of much value to those with an interest in the history and development of cerebral science, and makes for a worthy addition to collections of antique literature of this ilk. The chapters of this book include: 'Phylogeny', 'Ontogeny', 'Removal of the Brain', 'Dorsal and Lateral Surfaces', 'Ventral Surface', 'Sagittal Section', 'The Corpus Callosum and the Lateral Ventricle', 'The Interbrain and the Brain Stem', 'Horizontal and Thansverse Sections', and 'Summary'.
