Second language learning and teaching in classroom settings: The learning study - year one by Ontario( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

High school students studying French as a second language in Toronto were administered a questionnaire and a variety of achievement tests in French. Results were analyzed to determine the effects of learner characteristics on the development of second language competence. Four factors in learning success were posited: attitude, strategy, aptitude, and field independence. Aptitude consistently accounted for the largest portion of the variance in achievement. Only certain strategies were found to be responsible for achievement, the chief of which was functional practice. The most critical component of the attitude factor in terms of its effect on achievement was emotional intensity. Field independence was not found to be significantly related to achievement. These findings are taken into account in the revision of a model of language learning processes, which is viewed as having pedagogical implications. (Jb)
Evaluation of a demonstration career information centre, phase 3 by Ontario( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reports on phase three of the evaluation of a model career information center established in a secondary school as a demonstration project. This report contains comparative data obtained from student responses, one year after the center had been in operation. This survey found that while the number of students seeking assistance from a guidance counselor had decreased, the students rated such visits as more helpful than those surveyed earlier. It was also found that, compared to the earlier sample, the present students were more able to verbalize the steps necessary to career decisions, took more practical steps, and indicated greater commitment in the steps they had taken to planning their future. It was also found that new needs were emerging and different needs were being met. (Ng)

Investigation of factors related to reading achievement by Ontario( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study attempted to answer the following questions: Are all the concepts that reading tests are attempting to measure being taught in school? What are the characteristics of effective reading programs in school (E.G., amount of time, methods, materials, assistance, and support)? And What community-based variables are related to reading achievement by students in school (E.G., socio-economic and ethnic composition, population mobility, and language difficulty)? Since most previous Scarborough data indicated that the magnitude of the problem in reading achievement was most evident in Grade 6 test scores, this study collected data related to the reading instruction experiences of a group of students in Grade 3 (1968-69), Grade 4 (1967-70), and Grade 5 (1970-71) in an attempt to account for the reading test scores they obtained in Grade 6 (September, 1971). The primary emphasis of the study was placed on the development of comprehension ability. The results of the study indicated that the Gates-MacGinitie Reading Test measures many of the concepts being taught in the schools, and the results of a principal questionnaire, teacher questionnaire, and reading skills questionnaire showed that there are a large number of factors related to student's reading achievement and effective reading programs in school.

Vandalism prevention programs used in Ontario schools by Ontario( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A self-administered questionnaire was mailed to all school principals in Ontario asking them to indicate which of 55 vandalism prevention measures they had used; how effective each had been in reducing vandalism; the cost of vandalism during 1978; whether they have an alarm system and a vandalism-reporting system; and what community groups the school has involved in vandalism prevention measures. Among the most-used and most effective measures, according to the 3025 respondents, were providing adequate teacher supervision in hallways and lunch rooms, and keeping schools clean and attractive. One of the most effective measures, in the opinion of the principals, was installing an alarm system, although over one-third of the principals reported they already had one. The findings are discussed in terms of which measures are most effective, the cost of school vandalism, and how to use the findings. The need for developing more behavioral programs and better cost-reporting systems, and ways of utilizing the results of the study are outlined. (Author/MLF)
