Extractions: A Case Study with Spanish Last updated: 6/5/2000 Nosotros estamos aquí:¡Óyenos! Preparation The task of interpreting for foreign language classes is difficult enough without having a previous knowledge of the language being taught. The interpreter really should have had at least two years of instruction in the foreign language he or she will interpret, even for an introductory course in that language. It may have been years since you used the foreign language you learned in high school, but with some preparation before each class it will come back to you. If you start by interpreting the first introductory course, you will relearn it with ease. As a last resort, interpreters with no knowledge of the language can start by interpreting an introductory course and work their way up. Increasing numbers of interpreters have a third language, besides ASL and English, and we believe that a third language, whether it's a spoken language or a signed language, is certainly an asset in today's world. Having the textbook for the class is essential. By following the syllabus and reading ahead, the interpreter can know which aspects of the language and which vocabulary items will be dealt with in class on any given day. Bringing the book to class can be helpful in a number of ways. If the teacher asks a question from the book without mentioning the number of the question, by checking your copy of the book you can tell them where to read, instead of laboriously fingerspelling the question which they may get faster by reading it in the text. If the students are reading aloud an extended passage from the book, it may be beneficial to let the deaf students know where the class is in the textbook and have them read along. Some (hearing) students are difficult to understand when they read Spanish or speak it: having the book turned to the right page will help you decipher their attempts at pronunciation.

Extractions: Wherever there are people, there are things worth asking questions about, and such questions and attempts at answering them are the stuff from which original research is made. Majors are encouraged to undertake independent research, either during the school year, over breaks, or at their place of summer employment. Student research projects may be conducted on an independent study format (SOC 250/350), or as part of a collaborative partnership project. Ordinarily, such projects will last one semester. Sociology 250/350 may also be designed as a reading course covering a body of material not contained in any existing course. Normally, the SOC 250/350 results in one (or several) papers. SOC250/350 may be taken for a letter grade or for credit/non-credit. Students often have taken one or more courses in the general field for the proposed topic; coursework at the 200-level is typically a prerequisite for 350 work. The student should submit a short written description of the project and must obtain an instructor's consent to be the 250/350 advisor and that instructor's approval of the topic and plan of work. Faculty in their first year at Wellesley should usually not be asked to be 250/350 advisors. Check the faculty resumes for research interests similar to your own.

Extractions: Short of having a personal tutor holding your hand 24 hours a day, its hard to beat the homework help that America Online provides. No matter what the subject areamath, history, language, literature, you name ittheres bound to be something about it somewhere on AOL, or at least pointers to good Web sites with more information. Besides the encyclopedic articles one might expect, AOL adds live discussion groups and bulletin boards to produce an interactive learning tool. Students can bone up on this semesters most challenging courses or explore new areas of interest not touched in school. AOL offers a comprehensive, if somewhat sluggish, window on the world. In general, the homework-dedicated roads of America Online all lead to the bailiwick of the Academic Assistance Center (Keyword: aac ). The same volunteer tutors who staff this area also inhabit the related realms of the Homework Help screen. Together, these two homework sites stand out above the others on AOL. The AAC and Homework Help sites have a few subareas in common. We visited the variety of destinations to dig up the most effective homework tips.

Extractions: Below are a series of postings from soc.culture.taiwan , an electronic bulletin board on internet's Usenet. Users around the world participate in an ongoing conversation on all topics pertaining to Taiwan. By the time of this writing there have already been over 36,000 messages left on this bboard. As these postings suggest, the 228 massacre is a frequent subject for debate. This selection begins in the middle of a thread on 2.28. After one person wrote that he had never heard of the incident, someone responded by posting a series of eye-witness reports by Western observers. After reading this series of testimonials about the massacre, we decided to direct the discussion about 228 toward its representation in City of Sadness. The response reveals some of the controversy the film has provoked. The following note was from the original 1994 version, left here for nostalgia's sake: [For those unfamiliar with Usenet reading protocol, we offer the following notes. Every message starts with a heading much like an office memo, only it includes electronic addresses and the route the message took to the net. Writers often quote previous postings, generally preceding each line with a "greater than" mark to signal the extended quote. Because the internet is incapable of underlining or italics, you'll see asterisks and other methods of emphasis. This includes small graphic faces, such as :-) a sideways happy face. Note how the first author designates his displeasure at a previous writer's ignorance with a grimacing face. We have taken out e-mail addresses for posters' privacy.]

A: Capacity comes from data from the state, a formula that governs, but it does not specify special ed. Analyses of operation cost per sq. ft. and per student. Issue that drop in enrollment would constitute a 3% reduction of district operating budget. This loss would necessitate cuts in spending. The current SOC students bring $1.8 million. These funds allow us to keep instructional program. We need to consider the impact of SOC kids in terms of increasing class sizes in rooms that are overcrowded already, i.e. we need to be sure the SOC kids arent going to already full classrooms. We need to think about will our policy be to grow as a district or not and how that affects adding space. Need to think about curriculum prior to our recommendations. Q: Need to be careful about talking about adding space at the elem. Level, it might negatively impact the passage of the bond. People are really worried that the bond might be a Trojan horse for changes in the neighborhood schools concept, change to 5-6 configuration isnt necessarily popular.

Extractions: (c) 1969 The purpose of this section is to outline some major issues in foreign language teaching today, issues that bear upon the current, profession-wide examination of FL requirements. This report does not attempt to give a general review of the literature on FL learning and teaching; instead, it relies on previous extensive reviews (see References), taking them as the starting point, and it attempts to outline those principal conclusions which seemed to have the most empirical justification. The report is organized into six segments: I . Teaching Methods in FL Instruction. 2. The Case for FL Aptitude. 3. The Attainment of FL Proficiency. 4. The Effects of Motivation and Interest in FL Learning. 5. The Goals and Benefits of FL Study. 6. Recommended Changes in FL Requirements. 5.1 TEACHING METHODS IN FL INSTRUCTION The debate on the relative merits of the two approaches, which occupies a significant share of the attention of FL teachers and applied linguists in their deliberations at conferences and in literature, is not merely of academic interest. The polemic character of the debate is kept alive by two disturbing aspects of FL teaching today: one is the widespread dissatisfaction expressed by both students and teachers with the repetitive pattern drills required by the habit-skill approach, which makes the former feel like idiots and the latter more like drill masters than teachers. The other reason has to do with the distinct malaise that came to permeate the ranks of FL teachers upon the realization that the level of proficiency attained by a large, if not major, proportion of public school and college FL students is disappointingly poor. Given this situation, it is necessary to examine in some detail the nature of the arguments in this debate.
Extractions: (final update 07 March 1999) I recently received the initial message below from Nikita Pokrovsky of Moscow State University. He agreed (second message) that I could share it so that he might also receive responses from others. My reply to Prof. Pokrovsky is the third message. I have posted this exchange to several discussion groups and to my own mailing list, inviting people to respond directly to Prof. Pokrovsky and to send a copy of their responses to me The Discussion Date sent: Wed, 24 Feb 1999 10:03:40 +0300 Please feel free to share my questions with your audience at your convenience. As a professor of sociology, I definitely can see a tendency of the public opinion in the USfrom an absolutely uncritical admiration of everything Russian in the early 90s to an equally negative evaluation of almost everything Russian in the end of the 90s. I assume it may become a subject for an open and productive discussion among those who well know both our countries. Discussion Top Fenster to Pokrovsky, 26 February 1999
Extractions: Top ENGL 150 "Introduction to Narrative Film" Hughes ENGL /FA 337 "Digital Animation: Story, Narration, and Production" Anderson This course provides students with experience in using 3-D digital animation for creative or professional presentations. Students will learn to simulate camera movement, represent objects and spaces, and combine character animation and dialogue using the animation software Maya, traditional art skills, and story-telling, plot-development, and editing techniques. Working in problem-solving teams, students will complete the scripting, storyboarding, shot construction, and animatics for at least three short, 3-D narrative pieces. Pre-existing, ready-to-animate characters will be provided to teams that need them. A primary purpose of this course is to provide students with experience in participating in interdisciplinary teams in a manner similar to professional working environments. The structure of the class will be a combination of seminar and lab/studio. The major activity of the semester will be problem solving through the storyboarding and production of group animation assignments, supplemented by individual assignments. While partially the result of resource limitations (animation courses are particularly expensive to offer at the University level), group animation projects are an accurate reflection of the nature of such projects in professional settings: animation at its best is the result of joint efforts of colleagues from different backgrounds. Students are expected to learn from each other in order to enhance individual skills and insure the positive interaction vital to success of group projects.
