A Collaborative E-Mail Exchange for Teaching English as a Second Language to Intermediate Level ESL Students: A Case Study in a Hong Kong Secondary School.
Greenfield, Roseanne
This dissertation is a qualitative case study examining the feelings, attitudes, and opinions of secondary school, English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) students toward collaborative e-mail exchange for the purpose of learning English between 10th and 11th grade between students in Hong Kong and Green River, Iowa, USA. The research looks at the totality of a collaborative e-mail exchange. Most students enjoyed the exchange, gained confidence in English and computer skills and felt they made significant progress in writing, thinking, and speaking. Although most students believed this instructional model helped with general communicative competence, they were ambivalent as to whether it helped them improve on public exam-related skills such as grammar usage and discrete language functions. Appendixes include materials used in the study, rubrics, pre- and post-model surveys, and project evaluations. (Contains 241 references and 31 charts and tables. Appendixes include materials used in the study, rubrics, pre- and post-model surveys, and project evaluations.) (KFT)
