Old Dogs Can Learn New Tricks (If They Choose). (Student and Teacher Self-Assessment in an EFL Classroom in Pakistan).
Sharkey, Judy
This report details one English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) teacher's effort to empower students to become more effective learners during a 10-week teaching experience in Pakistan. The process entailed students' analyzing their own learning styles and strategies, learning new ones, applying them, reflecting on their experiences, and making choices regarding future learning. Using this cycle as a base, the teacher worked toward helping students develop skills that would enable them to assess both themselves as learners and also what they had learned. The teacher followed a similar process in an effort to become a more effective teacher. The report first describes the teacher's personal experiences with teaching leading up to this experiment, then details the 10-week program, and concludes with reflections on the experience. Completed feedback and assessment forms used during the project are appended. (MSE)
