Abstrak: This study proposes the idea of teaching students to write better professional and academic prose through business report writing tasks in the E.S.L. context. It analyzes and compares the rhetorical strategies which signal an awareness of form and reader in the reports and the essays written by both NS and NNS undergraduates from the Management School of Lancaster University. It has shown that the student reports and essays share most of the metadiscoursal features which provide signposts of organization and the writer’s point of view, both of which serve the purpose of guiding the readers in understanding the text. It suggests the idea of using business report writing tasks to prepare and initiate students to academic writing in the E.S.L. context. It also suggests that an awareness of the rhetorical framework of reports would help students write better academic prose in their mother-tongue of second language.

Abstrak: The emergence of computers as learning aid in the language classroom or Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) has sparked off a lot of interest among educators, who perceive CALL as having great potential in empowering the learners in their language acquistion process. With the aid of the branching design in CALL, language instructors are able to tailor-make lessons which address the needs, language ability and interest of learners, besides full filling the syllabus requirements of the respective institutions. In the case of having to deal with a large group of mixed-level learners, CALL enable the instructors to focus on the most immediate needs of each learner simultaneously. The psychological underpinnings and historical development of CALL are discussed as a basis of tracing the gradual integration of CALL into the language teaching-learning process. In addition, this study also seek to demonstrate the vast potential of internet in bringing real-life learning experience into the language classroom, which proves to be an invaluable feature for instructors who are teaching in the EFL learning situation, by presenting those features of CALL which complement the teaching and learning of the four major language skills.

Abstrak: This dissertation is made up of five chapters which addresses itself specifically to the question of race and education. Within this perspective, the first three chapters mainly discusses on the notion of ‘multicultural education’ which has gained wide currency in the literature in Britain. Hence, this dissertation provides the interminable debate on the concept and the different perspective of ‘multicultural education’ from the 1970s to 1980s. The main issues highlighted in these chapters are the series of programmes and debates whose aim was to look into and try to make provision for the needs of the ethnic minorities in education specifically to developed a multicultural approach to the curriculum. Nonetheless, the issues of underachievement in school has become a dominant concern for minorities communities. Thus, the final two chapters provides some explanation for educational underachievement among the minorities (in particular Asians and West Indians) which includes economic, social and psychological factors. Finally, this dissertation concludes that the education system in Britain is beginning to come to terms with incorporation of all ethnic minority children particularly in the early 1980s. However, the conception of ‘multicultural education’ has tried to provide the solution but to this date, it has become an interminable debate among educationalist and policy-makers. This dissertation also suggest that by improving the social and economic conditions of the minorities and by combating racism in society, partly it could enlighten the problem of underachievement of the minorities children.

Abstrak: The purpose of this critical evaluation is to highlight the main issues regarding the efficiency and equity of the proposal for the privatization of the higher education system in Malaysia. The issues will be criticized and some words of caution regarding the possible predicted outcome will be discussed. The government’s main objective in privatizing higher education institutions, in the form of corporations, is to reduce the financial burden of providing education. It is due to take place in Malaysia by next year (1996). However, the underlying objectives are not that clear. The original concern came from the current problem of brain drain among academics. Pressures to provide higher salaries at a competitive rate compatible with the private sector, made the government accept an alternative to the current public sector system of higher education. The idea of an independent education institution that can generate its own revenue funds and pay its own staff became the major incentive for future privatization. However, in the midst of all this enthusiasm, not enough emphasis was given to the impact that privatization might have on the higher education system under market forces. This evaluation is mainly concerned with the possible outcome, especially on the efficiency and equity grounds, that should be expected if privatization is to take place, and this will be discussed at length.

Gender – if “it’s Part of the Climate”, What Do Language Teachers Do?: Looking at Teachers’ Treatment of Gender in Teaching Materials

Abstrak: Studies on sexism in teaching materials have dominated the field of research for more than a decade but very few focused on teachers’ treatment of text in relation to gender. This dissertation looks at teachers’ treatment of gender in textbooks and supplementary materials, which include teacher-produced materials. Sunderland’s (1997) working model is employed in describing how gender is treated by the two teachers in this study. The analysis of data supports Shattuck’s (1996) findings and finds that the teachers treat gender differently although they used the same type of text (gender-specific text). Speculations were made that the teachers’ treatment were dependent on the nature of the text, whether the text portrays a negative image of the characters or promotes extension of traditional gender roles. Supplementary materials, which indirectly reflect their teaching ideology, objectives and world views, can also be used as a device to show their treatment of gender in the textbook. In using the model, this study shows that teachers’ treatment of gender in teaching materials is an intricate process. A teacher can covertly endorse the notion of equality in the extension of traditional gender roles and subvert the equal distribution of characters in the textbook. Both the teachers in this study treated gender covertly since discussions on it were not their main agenda, as described in their interviews. This study suggests that teachers’ intention should be made clear via interviews, to find out why teachers treat gender in their teaching materials the way they did.

Abstrak: Research in textbook and materials evaluation which was the major focus in many ELT published articles and books in the 1980s are still lacking, even though one cannot deny its important role when choosing an appropriate text for any particular language course. In this thesis, I will present the outcome of my attempt on using a formal evaluative checklist (based on Tucker’s (1975) and William’s (1983) textbook evaluation scheme) with the Malaysian teachers on six different Form One textbooks. The mini textbook evaluation survey aims to find out the values of the new English textbooks (which are written and published under the recently implemented KBSM curriculum) and how they compare with one another, after being used for about six years with the Form One pupils (hence, a summative evaluation). 33 teachers from 12 different schools throughout four states in Malaysia have participated and give their full cooperation by completing a Textbook Evaluation Form-cum-Questionnaire. 35 criteria in the checklist serves as the main evaluative framework which have been adapted to suit the Malaysian educational context. On the overall, this research has been a very rewarding experience for me, as it not only finds out how the Form One KBSM English textbooks fare with one another in the assessment, as well as shedding us with some light one the communicative potential of the books with the pupils’ needs. The research, which in a way, is an experimental application of Tucker’s evaluative scheme, has also taught me much on the development of textbook evaluative framework and its importance to teachers, even though they may not be actively involved in the selection of their textbooks, as Malaysian teachers are.

Metaphor in Second Language Teaching and Second Language Learning

Tesis: (M.A.), University of Essex
No. Panggilan: P118.2 P221m 1998

Abstrak: This essay mainly focuses on the conceptual view of metaphor as proposed by Lakoff and Johnson (1980) in Metaphors We Live By and designing of materials to highlight the structure and systematicity of conceptual metaphor. The more ‘traditional’ views are also examined in order to highlight how the understanding of metaphor has evolved and changed with the emergence of the conceptual view of metaphor. The many uses of conceptual metaphor as well as the notion of ‘metaphorical competence’ compels second language learning and second language teaching to reassess what ‘language’ is presented to second language learners. A ‘richer’ model language is needed. This does not mean that more literary texts should be used, rather the focus has to change. Texts are structured by conceptual metaphor, thereby the simplest solution would be to make learners aware of this structure. This is the aim of the essay, i.e. to justify the use of conceptual metaphor and then to demonstrate that materials can be designed to highlight the existence of conceptual metaphor in our everyday language.

Abstrak: This study is concerned with the development of Islamic education and the implementation of the National Islamic Secondary Schools (NISS). Before the British intervened and introduced the secular and modern system of education, the pondok and madrasah were regarded as important institutions. However, after the independence, these type of schools were not enough for the muslim students to meet contemporary requirement. The creation of the NISS was one of the governments’ attempts in improving the religious schools. Four schools are chosen as case study. By explaining the schools historical background, all schools had problems especially in the early years of their establishment. Improved selection of th e schools much improved results in the public examinations. generally the government through the Islamic Education Division have done well in promoting Islamic education development in the country, since the NISS is capable in producing Islamic esperts in various streams and also increasing the Muslims social mobility. Some comments and recommendations are given to the Ministry of education in planning for future improvement as a conclusion.

Abstrak: Komputer telah menjadi sebahagian daripada keperluan di bilik darjah sejak lebih tiga puluh tahun yang lampau. Penggunaannya yang paling utama adalah untuk menyampaikan pengajaran menerusi sistem yang dikenali sebagai sistem Pengajaran atau Pembelajaran Berbantu Komputer (PBK). Walaupun banyak perisian PBK yang berjaya telah dibangunkan tetapi perisisn-perisian ini didapati masih mempunyai banyak kelemahan, terutamanya dalam mempelbagaikan kaedah atau pendekatan pengajaran dan pembelajaran. Sebahagian besar daripada perisian yang dibangunkan adalah berasaskan kepada pendekatan latih tubi. Walaupun berjaya dalam melatih tubi kemahiran mengira dan berbahasa, metodologi ini tidak dapat mempersembahkan konsep-konsep yang kompleks dengan jayanya. Kebanyakan sistem adalah berpusatkan guru dan tidak mengikuti teknik pengajaran dan pembelajaran yang sebenar. Teknik-teknik Kepintaran Buatan dan teknologi Multimedia yang mula dikenali dan diterima pakai dalam bidang pendidikan menyediakan kemungkinan untuk membangunkan persekitaran pembelajaran yang tidak terdapat di dalam sistem-sistem tradisional. Tesis ini membincangkan beberapa konsep Kepintaran Buatan dalam pendidikan serta pembangunan perisian kursus Multimedia untuk tujuan pembelajaran Matematik. Perisian ini merangkumi sukatan pelajaran bagi topik Masa dan Waktu, sesuai untuk murid-murid Tahun 2 di sekolah rendah. Perisian yang menggunakan pendekatan Multimedia ini akan menghasilkan persembahan yang lebih berkesan dan menarik kerana keupayaannya yang boleh menggabungkan video, audio, animasi dan imej ke dalam satu aplikasi sama seperti teks dan grafik.

Abstrak: In the Malaysian education system, the Federal Inspector of Schools occupies a key position in educational leadership. This study sought to determine the professional preparation needed in order to perform competently the many tasks of the Inspectorate. The discovery of the preparation needs of Inspectors was conceived in terms of two inter-related problems: (1) identifying the significance of tasks of Inspectors of Schools, and (2) determining the adequacy of their preparation for the Inspectoral role. Through the use of structured questionnaires and non-parametric statistical methods, the opinions of Federal Inspectors of School, Headmasters/ Headmistresses of secondary schools, Peninsular Malaysia and selected Ministry of Education Officials were obtained on a number of topics related to the problem.

Abstrak: This is a case-study of a graduate course conducted over IDEAnet, a network created by the Indiana Department of Education. This study looked at the people involved in this course during the Spring 1993 semester; using the five attributes suggested by Harasim (1990), this case-study also looked at how these five attributes shaped this course. The study found that there were many levels of interaction that occurred in this course. At the lowest level, there was the participative monologue where participants would give out their thoughts without “listening” to others on-line. There were also instances of one-time dialogue, where an interaction occurred between two individuals once, and then stopped. At the highest level, there were instances of interactive communication where many individuals interact, discussing on a common topic. These three types of interaction were quite common on the conference space; these, however, do not promote collaborative learning. Participation is a necessary, but not a sufficient condition for interaction; interaction is a necessary but not sufficient condition for collaboration. For collaboration to happen there must be a shared and immediate goal between participations. This does not occur naturally on the conference space. Other instructional activities must be incorporated into the course to allow for collaboration to occur. In this on-line course, collaborative learning occurred during one of the small group interaction. Lastly, the history of computer education and suggestions for the future of computer networking in the researcher’s country, Malaysia, were discussed.

Abstrak: This study investigated the correlates of academic achievement or Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR) examinations and identified the significant predictors of PMR achievement. The study was prompted in response to the national call for more research on the dwinding interest and poor performance in science among upper secondary students. There was also a felt need to reinstate English oral and written competencies among the younger generation of Malaysians to prepare them for advancement in information technology by the year 2020. Four factors were investigated: UPSR performance, personal characteristics, home factors and school factors. The sample consisted of 1216 Form Four students randomly chosen from all the eighteen secondary schools in Perlis. These students sat for the PMR examinations in 1995. A 74-item self constructed questionnaire was used to collect the data. The questionnaire was pilot tested. The result yielded a reliability coefficient of 0.95. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze the data. The findings indicate that PMR achievement is positively and significantly related with UPSR performance, personal characteristics, home factors and school factors. Jointly, these factors explain 71% of the variance in PMR achievement. UPSR overall performance emerged as the best predictor of PMR achievement. It explains 55% of the total 71% variance explanation in PMR achievement. Socio-economic status was a significant predictor for English and mathematics performance in the PMR examinations. School type emerged as significant predictor for overall PMR performance, as well as, performance in English, science and mathematics in the PMR examinations. PMR performance also differed significantly between and among students according to UPSR performance, personal characteristics, home factors and school factors.

Abstrak: Kajian ini bertujuan untuk melihat faktor-faktor yang mempunyai hubungan dengan pencapaian pelajar tingkatan empat aliran sains dalam mata pelajaran matematik tambahan di daerah Seberang Perai (U). Populasi kajian ini adalah seramai 856 pelajar. Sejumlah 269 pelajar telah dipilih sebagai sampel dalam kajian ini. Kajian ini menggunakan kaedah soal selidik yang diubahsuai dari ‘Mooney Problems Check List’. Ujian statistik yang digunakan dalam kajian ini ialah korelasi Pearson, regrasi, ujian-t, ujian-F, dan ANOVA sehala. Ujian korelasi Pearson mendapati bahawa faktor minat, persepsi, sikap pelajar, rakan sebaya, masalah peribadi dan sikap guru mempunyai hubungan yang signifikan dengan pencapaian pelajar dalam matematik tambahan. Analisa regrasi pula menunjukkan faktor-faktor minat persepsi, sikap pelajar dan persekitaran sekolah menjadi peramal (predictor) kepada pencapaian pelajar dalam matematik tambahan. Ujian-t pula menunjukkan tidak terdapat perbezaan min markah yang signifikan antara, (a) pelajar lelaki dan perempuan (b) pelajar bandar dan luar bandar. Ujian ANOVA sehala pula menunjukkan tidak terdapat perbezaan min markah antara beberapa kumpulan pelajar. Pencapaian pelajar dalam matematik tambahan adalah sama walaupun ibu bapa pelajar mempunyai tahap pendidikan dan pendapatan yang berbeza. Walau bagaimanapun, ujian ANOVA juga menunjukkan terdapat perbezaan min markah yang signifikan antara pelajar Melayu dan Cina. Pencapaian pelajar-pelajar Cina dan India dalam mata pelajaran metematik tambahan adalah lebih baik dari pelajar-pelajar Melayu.

Abstrak: Digolongkan sebagai pemimpin masa depan, generasi pelajar remaja kini adalah bakal memasuki pusat-pusat pengajian tinggi dan menghabiskan sebahagian masanya di asrama sekolah. Maka, kajian ini bertujuan untuk melihat gelagat pelajar-pelajar remaja di asrama dalam pertalian latar belakang keluarga dengan aktiviti pembelajaran dan prestasi akademik. Di samping itu meneliti tahap interaksi sesama pelajar remaja yang sebaya dan permasalahan sosial mereka di asrama. Kajian ini juga menganalisa perbandingan pengalaman hidup di asrama antara pelajar remaja lelaki dan pelajar remaja perempuan selama hampir dua tahun tempoh persekolahan mereka dalam tiga buah sekolah menengah vokasional di Kedah. Kajian ini dilakukan bagi memberikan sedikit sebanyak gambaran tentang kehidupan sebenar yang dilalui oleh pelajar-pelajar remaja di sepanjang tempoh penginapan mereka di asrama. Matlamat setiap program dan aktiviti yang dijalankan oleh pihak asrama sentiasa bertemakan ciri-ciri positif yang akan membawa ke arah pembentukan insan yang berilmu dan berdisiplin, saling menghormati, bekerjasama, bermasyarakat dan peka kepada perkembangan semasa. Walau bagaimanapun persoalannya ialah sejauh manakah mereka menghayati dalam mempraktikkan nilai-nilai murni tersebut. Hasil analisis dan penemuan kajian ini mampu menjawab persoalan tersebut. Mengingatkan tentang cabaran-cabaran baru yang bersifat global, peranan dan tanggungjawab asrama bukan sahaja seharusnya tersudut kepada penyediaan dan penjagaan terhadap penginapan dan kemudahan fizikal yang disediakan kepada para pelajar remaja tetapi sewajarnya memerlukan suatu perubahan dalam pembangunan peribadi para penghuninya.

(Srimuliani Handoyokusumo; Lolos PNS Guru di lingkungan Kemenag Berau)

Berawal dari keinginan kuat untuk mengikuti test tertulis CPNS yang dilaksanakan oleh PEMDA Berau dimana saya tinggal, saya pun ikut berpartisipasi mengkutinya. Namun sebenarnya bukan sekedar hanya berpartisipasi tapi terlebih saya memang berkeinginan untuk menjadi seorang PNS. Waktu pun terus berjalan, karena tertanggal 5 Desember 2013 yang lalu saya pun mengikuti Test CPNS yang diselenggarakan oleh PEMDA Berau dengan harapan yang maksimal yaitu menjadi seorang PNS. Kini tanggal 18 Desember 2013, pengumuman test kelulusan tertulis itu diumumkan. Dengan sedikit rasa was-was dan bercampur tidak karuan menyelimuti pikiranku. Rasa pesimisku memang timbul, karena pengumuman yang di informasikan adalah tertanggal 11 Desember 2013 namun di undur tanggal 18 Desember 2013. Dengan mengucapkan BISMILLAH, aku pun masuk ke halaman kantor BKD untuk melihat hasil pengumuman test tertulis CPNS. Dan Syukur Alhamdulillah saya pun LULUS diurutan ke 3 dari 1 formasi yang aku ikuti di Kabupaten Berau Kalimantan Timur. Dan berikut peringkat screen shoot yang saya jepret menggunakan Ponsel kesayangku.
