The majority of course evaluations take the form…

Scullin, Michael K. – Teaching of Psychology, 2019
Many students and educators know that sleep is important to learning, yet there exists a gap between their knowledge and behavior. For example, fewer than 10% of students sleep 8 hr before final exams. In the context of two undergraduate courses on sleep (N = 34), students could earn extra credit if they averaged =8.0 hr of sleep during final…

Pavón Vázquez, Víctor; Ramos Ordóñez, María del Carmen – International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, 2019
The presence of the L1 in classes where English is taught as a Foreign Language (EFL) has always provoked debate. As a result, the role of the L1 remains a matter of discussion in the bilingual education classroom. Moreover, the presence of both the L1 and a foreign language can be controversial in programmes where both the L1 and the foreign…

Lin, Angel M. Y. – International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, 2019
Translanguaging theories emphasize a fluid, dynamic view of language and differ from code-switching/mixing theories by de-centring the analytic focus from the language(s) being used in the interaction to the speakers who are making meaning and constructing original and complex discursive practices. Trans-semiotizing theories further broaden the…

Lo, Yuen Yi; Lin, Angel M. Y. – International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, 2019
Content-based education programmes, in which a second/foreign language (L2) is used as the medium of instruction when teaching non-language content subjects, aim at both content and L2 learning. With such dual goal in mind, and with the rapid expansion of the programmes to contexts where students might have only basic L2 proficiency, there have…

Bower, Kim – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
This article reports part of an empirical research study undertaken in state secondary schools in England in 2012/2013, to investigate the extent to which Content and Integrated Learning (CLIL) promotes pupil motivation in the teaching of modern foreign languages (MFLs). Pupil perspectives of the impact of CLIL on their motivation are presented…

Background: Health educators in public high schools can provide educational interventions to reduce teen unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Singleton, David; Pfenninger, Simone E. – Language Teaching, 2019
This article is concerned with age in second language learning. It steers well clear, however, of the well-worn issue of maturational constraints and the intractable problems of locating their consensual offset point and finding indisputable evidence for or against them. Instead we propose something completely different in our agenda for…

Willis, Royce L.; Lynch, David; Fradale, Paul; Yeigh, Tony – Education and Information Technologies, 2019
Teachers are increasingly required to incorporate information and communications technologies (ICT) into the modern classroom. The implementation of ICT into the classroom should not be seen as merely an add-on, however, but should be included with purpose; meaningfully implemented based on pedagogy. The aim of this study is to explore potential…

The term Adaptive E-learning System (AES) refers to the set of techniques and approaches that are combined together to offer online courses to the learners with the aim of providing customized resources and interfaces. Most of these systems focus on adaptive contents which are generated to the learners without considering the learning styles of…

Martínez-Adrián, María; Gallardo-del-Puerto, Francisco; Basterrechea, María – Language Teaching Research, 2019
The use of communication strategies (CSs) in oral and written second language (L2) production has been widely investigated (e.g. Muñoz, 2007). As for content and language integrated learning (CLIL) settings, learners seem to resort to the first language (L1) less often than in traditional foreign language instruction (e.g. Celaya & Ruiz de…

Nightingale, Richard; Safont, Pilar – English Language Teaching, 2019
As academic language skills develop, young learners are able to rise to the challenge of increasingly complex communication in increasingly formal settings (Snow, 2014; Uccelli et al., 2015). Studies suggest that CLIL contexts may favour the development of academic language skills (Dalton-Puffer, 2007; Nikula, 2007; Marsh, 2008; Pasqual Peña,…

Codina-Espurz, Victòria; Salazar-Campillo, Patricia – English Language Teaching, 2019
Email communication is pervasive in faculty interaction. As there exists status imbalance between students and professors in this type of context, emails are expected to cater for the uneven power relationships by means of using appropriate polite features. Previous research (e.g., Eslami, 2013; Salazar-Campillo & Codina-Espurz, in press) has…
