Processing Instruction And Meaningful Output-Based Instruction: Effects On Second Language Development, Kara Morgan-Short, Harriet Bowden Feb 2006

Processing Instruction And Meaningful Output-Based Instruction: Effects On Second Language Development, Kara Morgan-Short, Harriet Bowden

Harriet Wood Bowden

This study investigates the effects of meaningful input- and output-based practice on SLA. First-semester Spanish students (n = 45) were assigned to processing instruction, meaningful output-based instruction, or control groups. Experimental groups received the same input in instruction but received meaningful practice that was input or output based. Both experimental groups showed significant gains on immediate and delayed interpretation and production tasks. Repeated-measures analyses of variance showed that overall, for interpretation, both experimental groups outperformed the control group. For production, only the meaningful output-based group outperformed the control group. These results suggest that not only input-based but also output-based instruction can ...

Reading Trees In Southern Literature, Matthew Sivils Jan 2006

Reading Trees In Southern Literature, Matthew Sivils

Matthew Sivils

Trees fulfi ll an important semiotic function within southern literary texts, and through this role serve as nexuses between humans and the natural world of the American South. Because of their ability to assume a wide range of sometimes temporary meanings, it is useful to think of southern literary trees as semiotic bottle trees: arboreal platforms upon which writer’s place semiotic components, or containers. To begin I draw from the work of Patricia Yaeger and Farah Jasmine Griffi n as I examine how southern literary trees are inexplicably connected to the issues of both environmental and racial oppression. Then ...


Novela Negra, Modernismo Y Revolución En Sombra De La Sombra, De Paco Ignacio Taibo Ii, Luis Cano Dec 2005

Novela Negra, Modernismo Y Revolución En Sombra De La Sombra, De Paco Ignacio Taibo Ii, Luis Cano

Luis C. Cano

El presente artículo analiza la forma en que Paco Ignacio Taibo II recurre a la novela negra para efectuar un análisis del contexto histórico y cultural en el que se sitúa su obra Sombra de la sombra. Apoyándose en lo que denomina «neopolicíaco», Taibo efectúa una evaluación de conceptos como ética, intelectualidad y aparato estatal, y del impacto que las escrituras del modernismo y de la revolución mexicana tuvieron en la formación del México moderno.
