Writing as a thinking process by Mary S Lawrence( Book )

5 editions published between 1972 and 1975 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text is designed for students of English as a second language for intermediate and advanced levels of proficiency. The text is based on an approach to writing which is semantic and cognitive. Providing for active transfer of each student's knowledge of vocabulary and grammar, it bridges the gap between controlled writing and free writing. Semantic in emphasis, this system of teaching composition focuses on writing as a means of communication. The writing practice is concerned with meaning, both in content and through relationships. The cognitive method treats writing, not as an end-product to be evaluated and graded, but as an activity, a process, which the student can learn how to accomplish. Pedagogically, it relies on active thinking, that is, on a conscious awareness of the intellectual process. It capitalizes on the students' ability to think inductively and on the cognitive skills they already have. Students are to be aware of the cognitive methods they are utilizing and be able to identify them. (Author)

Problems in foreign language testing; proceedings of a conference held at the University of Michigan, September, 1967 by John A Upshur( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 14 conference papers and discussion transcripts in this volume were arranged to suggest both an outline of the state of the art of foreign language testing and a practical guide for test writers and users. The first two papers (T.R. Hopkins, Language Testing of North American Indians; and E.J. Briere, Testing esl Among Navajo Children) deal with specific groups. A paper by D.A. White (Second Language Testing Requirements of the Canadian Public Service Commission) shows the vast range of problems and their consequences. Two papers present models of language behavior (L.A. Jakobovits, Dimensionality of Compound-Coordinate Bilingualism; and R.L. Cooper, An Elaborated Language Testing Model). The three following papers discuss testing variables and instrumentation (P. Pimsleur, Aptitude Testing; B. Spolsky et al., Preliminary studies in the Development of Techniques for Testing Overall Second Language Proficiency; and T. Plaister, Testing Aural Comprehension). Test validity is dealt with in papers by R.M. Valette (Evaluating Oral and Written Communication), E.G. Lewis (International Education Assessment--English as a Foreign Language), and E. Ingram (Testing in the Context of a Language Learning Experiment). Finally, two papers discuss classification of tests (W.F. Mackey, The Typology, Classification and Analysis of Language Tests; and J. Savard, a Proposed System for Classifying Language Tests). A summary of the conference was written by L.A. Palmer. (Jd)
