Re-crafting the heroic, constructing a female hero: Margaret Cavendish and Aphra Behn - Cuder Domínguez, Pilar
The development of women’s writing in English throughout the seventeenth century is quite extraordinary. In the field of drama, women participated not only as spectators or readers, but more and more as patronesses, as playwrights, and later on as actresses and even as managers. Yet some dramatic forms proved more resilient than others to women’s coming to voice. Comedies were more flexible, as their conventions allowed for female characters – heroines – as mates and nearly equals to the young male hero. But tragedies required high-born, authoritative and powerful characters, and such defining traits seemed to be the prerogative of...
Creencias, rendimiento académico y actitudes de alumnos universitarios principiantes en un programa plurilingüe - Toledo, Isabelle; Rubio Alcalá, Fernando D.; Hermosín Mojeda, Manuel
La implantación de programas plurilingües en la educación superior en
España es novedosa y creciente. En este artículo se aborda la cuestión de cómo el alumno principiante percibe su experiencia, en cuanto al aprendizaje del idioma,rendimiento académico, desarrollo de destrezas, dificultad, dedicación, esfuerzo y motivación se refiere. Los resultados obtenidos mediante cuestionarios, entrevistas y autoinformes apuntan que tras ciertas incertidumbres el alumnado concibe positivamente la experiencia al percibir que su nivel del idioma mejora y no se perjudica su rendimiento académico. Además, sus actitudes y motivaciones no decrecen ante el incremento de esfuerzo y dificultad.
Estudio sobre prácticas docentes en evaluación de la lengua inglesa en la ESO - Rubio Alcalá, Fernando D.; Tamayo Rodríguez, Leticia
Se critica la enseñanza del inglés en España y los resultados de aprendizaje. En este artículo se
advierte que en parte se debe a la ausencia de evaluación oral en la ESO, y para ello se han
analizado las prácticas docentes de evaluación. Se recogieron instrumentos de evaluación
utilizados, en nuestro caso exámenes, y se analizaron sus contenidos. Los resultados obtenidos
indican que las destrezas orales apenas se evalúan, que los elementos comunicativos son casi
inexistentes y que no se siguen algunos criterios de evaluación marcados por la ley.
Teachers’ concerns and uncertainties about the introduction of CLIL programmes - Pavón Vázquez, Víctor; Rubio Alcalá, Fernando D.
The implementation of content and language integrated learning (CLIL)
means significant changes in the way in which teaching is planned, sequenced and
carried out. The adoption of a new curriculum, which integrates linguistic and nonlinguistic material, as well as the linguistic and methodological needs that come with the introduction of this type of teaching, have generated feelings of concern and uncertainty. This paper reports those concerns and uncertainties in the Andalusian context, and strives for clarifying issues related to the theoretical assumptions, teaching implementation and creation of teaching units in CLIL.
Humanistic education in Spanish context : its value in the secondary classroom - Fonseca Mora, María del Carmen
In this paper, we report the findings of a collaborative case study where an English teacher in the Spanish secondary school uses humanistic exercises to enhance motivation. Data collection procedures such as audio-recorded lessons, language tests and motivation questionnaires were used leading to both quantitative and qualitative analyses. The results indicate the usefulness of these humanistic activities as key elements in fostering the type of meaningful contextual interaction that promotes high motivation and selective attention. They also generated a sense of community and the emergence of collaborative relationships. Therefore, more oral contributions in the target language were observed as learners...
What does it mean to be a man? : codes of black masculinity in Toni Morrison's paradise and love - Gallego Durán, María del Mar
Within the debate over the representation of contemporary Black masculinity,
Morrison has played a pioneering role, especially in two of her novels –Paradise
(1998) and Love (2003)– where her intervention in this debate has become deeply
infl uential due to not only her incisive portrayal of the fi gure of the patriarch and the
devastating effects of the institution of patriarchy on the African American family and
community, but also because she has shaped “alternative masculinities,” or diverse
embodiments of what it actually means to be a Black man nowadays. Morrison is
bent on changing their representation by providing plural models of masculinity,
which necessarily take into account...
Multiple intelligence theory and foreign language learning : a brain-based perspective - Arnold Morgan, Jane; Fonseca Mora, María del Carmen
Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences theory is presented as a cognitive perspective on intelligence
which has profound implications for education in general. More specifically, it has led to the
application of eight of these frames to language teaching and learning. In this chapter, we will
argue in favour of the application of MIT to the EFL classroom, using as support some of the
major insights for language teaching from brain science.
The use of co-operative work and rubrics to develop competences - Delgado Canto, Miguel Ángel; Fonseca Mora, María del Carmen
Some of the most important engineering skills required nowadays, such as the ability to co-operate to find appropriate
information, to solve problems through critical and creative thinking, to make decisions and to communicate
effectively, are dealt with in this study carried out with chemical engineering students. The study investigates how
certain competences needed by students may be developed through co-operative learning. Learners were given clear
evaluation rubrics to know what was expected of them. Data were obtained from a survey form, assessment results
and meetings with individual groups. The main results indicate that the teacher’s involvement in creating a challenging,
integrated teaching unit and students’ effort...
El pensamiento en la clase de inglés : fuente de poder o vulnerabilidad - Rubio Alcalá, Fernando D.
The students’ thoughts are a source of power when they are used correctly in
the EFL classroom, but, on the contrary, they may be an obstacle to learning
and cause emotional instability if the students do not use them well.
According to general studies of psychology, thoughts can be classified as
relevant and irrelevant. A relevant thought takes place when a person
dedicates his thinking to a specific task. For instance, a student is doing a
multiple-choice exercise about phrasal verbs, and makes hypothesis and
deductions from his knowledge of phrasal verbs in order to do the exercise.
Then, as those relevant thoughts take place, other thoughts that...
