Online Submission, Ph.D. Thesis, Cairo University
The main aim of the present study was to develop EFL teachers' performance at Sana'a secondary schools in the light of their professional and specialist needs. Based on literature review, related studies and a panel of jury members' points of view and English teachers' interview, a list of four needs was proposed and used as the most necessary needs for English teachers at Sana'a secondary schools: (effective communication skills, reflection, integrating language skills and intercultural competence). The experimental design of the study depended on the voluntary basis of choosing the group of the study, which consisted of (25) English teachers. In the light of review of literature and the results of the pre administration of the observation checklist, the researcher designed a training program based on the four professional and specialist needs to develop teaching performance of EFL teachers at Sana'a secondary schools, the program was implemented over a period of seven weeks. Beside the observation checklist mentioned above, a pre-post achievement test was used to assess the knowledge aspects of the EFL teachers' professional and specialist performance. Results proved that there were significant differences between the mean scores of the experimental group of the study on the observation checklist and the achievement test in favor of the post administrations mean scores due to the effect of the training program. The following are appended: (1) Needs Questionnaire; (2) The Observation Checklist; (3) The Self-Assessment; (4) The Pre-Post Test; (5) The Jury Members; (6) Trainees' Raw Scores in the Observation Checklist and Pre-Post Test; (7) The Pilot Study; and (8) Answer Key of the Pre-Post Test.
