Approach: Within the teaching method framework, the approach is constituted by those theoretical principles on which the curricular design is based (Richards and Rodgers, 1986). Thus, an approach is usually understood as the body of linguistic, psychological and pedagogical theories which inspire the teaching practice. Stern (1983: 43-50) refers to foundations/theoretical assumptions and to a level -interlevel- between theory and practice where the educational linguistics theory and research take place.
Curricular design: A new term which substitutes both programme and syllabus as old limited references to contents and bibliography. Within Richards and Rodgers’ outline (1986), the design includes objectives, linguistic content, activities, learner roles, teacher roles, and the role of instructional materials. According to Stern (1983: 43-50), the practice level of a “general model for second language teaching” includes methodology -objectives, content, procedures, materials and evaluation of outcome- and organization; thus, the term methodology includes design and procedures.
Curriculum: As defined by Nunan (1988), it comprises the principles and procedures for the planning, implementation, evaluation and management of an educational programme.
Method: This general term includes the approach, design and procedures in Richards and Rodgers’ model.
Methodics and Method analysis: Terms used by Halliday, McIntosh and Strevens (1964) and Mackey (1965), respectively, in order to consider the whole teaching processes. Special emphasis is placed on selection, grading, presentation, repetition and testing.
Methodology: Stern’s (1983) concept of methodology can be identified with design, according to Richards and Rodgers (1986). It involves content, objectives, materials, procedures and assessment –under the acronym of C.O.M.P.A.-. Together with organization, it…...

The difference between the terminal performance of the learner and his/her base level performance is normally attributed to effective teaching by means of teaching methodologies use by the teacher. Teacher factor is one of the strongest determinants of successful learning that contribute to the study habits of students. Study habits and teaching methodologies performed a very important role in the learning process. Through the advancement in our technology some changes occur in teaching procedures, the help of printed materials learning become complex. The skill in selecting methodologies in the context of certain lesson is critical. The teacher has mastered this ability through sharp and intensive observation of how students learn. Choosing on what teaching methodologies to be used can contribute on the study habits of the students. It is expected that when teachers used the best teaching method, students might study lessons easily. Psychologists and educational experts are aware of this situation and use their knowledge about learning, about techniques and procedures to study and apply it to teaching process. How can we obtain learnings by means of study habit? Salandanan (2005) asserts that, “[i]t includes the teachers’ to implement a particular methodology in presenting a lesson” (p. 50).

...Methodologies Compare and contrast between qualitative and quantitative research methodologies. How would you apply each type of research methodology at work? Qualitative research methodology is conducted on site or location of the study where the data are collected, with the research as the key instrument. Instead of numbers, words and pictures such as transcripts of in-depth interviews, field notes, photographs, tapes, memos, personal documents, and other official records are used to collect data. The process from beginning to end or history is more important in this type of method than the outcome of what happened. Information or data collected are not to be approved or disapproved by hypothesis, but are gathered then separated into groups for further evaluation. Why people do the things they do is very important to researchers in the qualitative method, they are concerned with how different people/culture live their lives and make sense of them by looking for common ground. Quantitative research methodology on the other hand, is conducted to ensure objectivity, generalizability and reliability, by testing, retesting and post testing subjects of the study for effectiveness. It relies mostly on numbers, counts, measures, operational values, quantifiable coding, quantitative data and statistical data. Its’ audience is much broader and generalized than that of the qualitative method and investigators would usually go into a study with predetermined questions; methods...

...language teaching (CLT) emphasizes interaction and problem solving as both the means and the ultimate goal of learning English or any language. As such, it tends to emphasize activities such as role play, pair work and group work. It switched traditional language teaching's emphasis on grammar, and the teacher-centered classroom, to that of the active use of authentic language in learning and acquisition. CLT is interested in giving students the skills to be able to communicate under various circumstances. As such, it places less emphasis on the learning of specific grammatical rules and more on obtaining native-speaker-like fluency and pronunciation. Students are assessed on their level of communicative competence rather than on their explicit knowledge. It is more of an approach or philosophy than a highly structured methodology. David Nunan famously listed five key elements to the communicative approach: 1. An emphasis on learning to communicate through interaction in the target language. 2. The introduction of authentic texts into the learning situation. 3. The provision of opportunities for learners to focus, not only on the language but also on the learning process itself. 4. An enhancement of the learner's own personal experiences as important contributing elements to classroom learning. 5. An attempt to link classroom language learning with language activation outside the classroom. The most obvious advantage in communicative language teaching......

...Topic:  "Good teaching cannot be reduced to technique; it comes from the identity and integrity of the teacher.” Explain why you agree with this statement and how it relates to a health education teaching experience. I had my first experience with a teacher at the age when I did not even know what the word “teacher” meant. I was 4 years old at that time. I still have blurred memories of a woman who used to show me flash cards every day so that I could recognize and identify different colors. She used to make me count beads on abacus so that I can get familiar with counting methods. As I grew up I moved from play school to an elementary school. This was the beginning of my formal education. The kindergarten years were still as joyful as I could still play with my abacus and listen to fairy tales. However, my schooling experience began to grow dreadful as I moved to higher grade levels. My classes not only began to get boring, but also they became difficult to tolerate. I remember killing time by scribbling at the back of my exercise books while my teacher thought I was taking notes. It was not that I did not want to study any more. I was always very ambitious about learning. However, for some reason it was very difficult for me to focus and figure out what my teacher was trying to explain. My parents and the principal thought that I was a below average kid who is least bothered about het academics because they had employed the best teachers in the town. I do not know what......

The Teachings of Socrates Successfully Shaped Ancient Greece Into an Advanced Civilisation. to What Extent Is This Statement Correct?

...The teachings of Socrates successfully shaped Ancient Greece into an advanced civilisation. To what extent is this statement correct? In 469BC, one of the most important philosophical influences in the Ancient Greek civilisation was born. Socrates’ teachings would continue to heavily impact on philosophical thought throughout the ages. Socrates began as a stonemason, but quickly made the change to a life pursuing the answers to all moral problems with emphasis on the right conduct by which one should live their life. His teachings attracted groups of young men who adopted his methodologies and became fascinated with the ideas he presented, which although popular with some, were often in conflict with the politicians in Athens at the time. Socrates lived through one of Athens’ most advanced eras and he saw firsthand the rise of the Athenian Empire. He often passed judgment and was highly opinionated on many issues which were putting Athens on the map, including democracy. He also promoted honesty and virtue as key contributors to a happy life. Socrates was one of only a few philosophers to be recognised for his work in his lifetime and this indicates that he must have been significant in some capacity. However, Athens was an ever-expanding empire, which meant that their culture was heavily impacted on by not just Greek people on the inside but also by the countries that they conquered and the foreigners who came to Athens as slaves or traders. These outside......

...of a project management methodology. The importance and need for the company to establish an enterprise project management methodology (EPM) was not new to the executives and instead, the year before they chose their ego, power and control over doing the right thing for the company, its clients and ability to win new business from its competitors. Was the executives’ initial approach the best? In all fairness, it is not easy for a company to change its approach of doing business, adapt to changes, and willingly accept a process that is still evolving and that for many has a negative connotation of evading a company’s control. It is the lack of knowledge and understanding of the enterprise project management methodology (EPM) that affected the company’s opportunity for growth and the identification of possible processes and documents that could have been changed or eliminated. The fact that the executives waited so long means that they did not have a mature and strong project management process and corporate culture that fosters communication, teamwork, cooperation, and trust. Each of the executives felt threatened that by developing a methodology, it will have impact to their functional units and their importance omitted or diminished. That is evident based because John Compton had to get involved to coach and led his executives to whom he had entrusted. There is a key difference between project management and a project management methodology – they are not the......

...CHAPTER III METHODOLOGY This chapter outlined the entire research plan. It described how the study was done, the data, instruments utilized, how samples were selected and the analysis of the data using statistical treatment. Research Design The researchers used the true experimental design. It further used Solomon’s Four Group design which involves two experimental groups and two controlled groups. One experimental group and one control group are administered the pretest and the other groups are not, thereby allowing the effects of the pretest measure and intervention to be segregated. In this study there were two groups who were studied: a group who studies alone and a group who studies with a group, this design is a combination of pretest and post test controlled group design, and the post test only controlled group design, in addition to the basic pretest/treat/posttest design three additional test, one without treatment, one without pretest, and one without both pretest and treatment were considered. For a reliable result several sets of four tests were applied and the means used. The various combinations of tested and untested groups with treatment and controlled groups allow the researchers to ensure that confounding variables and extraneous factors have not influenced the results. | |Pre-test |Treatment |Post test | |Experimental with pre-test |O1 |X ......

... DEVELOPMENT OF HOSTEL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM METHODOLOGY It is the systematic, theoretical analysis of the methods applied to a field of study. It comprises the theoretical analysis of the body of methods and principles associated with a branch of knowledge. System development methodology in software engineering is a framework that is used to structure, plan, and control the process of developing an information system. There are several methodologies and tools used in software or system development. Some of which are , Agile, crystal methods, dynamic systems development(DSDM), Feature driven development (FDD), Joint application development(JAD)etc. Since we are aiming at developing hostel management system to solve the problems in manual ways of hostel management which in now common even with the current technological advancement. The following steps are how we intend to go about with the study or the project work with regards to hostel management system. Interviews According to Gary Dessler, an interview is a procedure designed to obtain information from a person’s oral response to oral inquires and it can also be described as two-way conversations that the parties involve have some sort of objectives or goals to accomplish. So basically we will have some kind of oral conversation with the some Hostel managers, students and others who have knowledge in relation to our study in order to have a detailed overview on how the manual system is run with......

...method do you prefer as a teacher? Reasons for choosing that method. Why not other methods? Ans: Method means a way of doing something, especially a systematic way; implies an orderly logical arrangement (usually in steps). Method of learning a language means doing some set of activities by which a learner can learn a language very well. Methodology means a body of practices, procedures, and rules used by those who work in a discipline or engage in an inquiry. There are many methods of teaching a language with different approaches. It is really difficult to choose any particular method. Because each of them has different sides and we cannot ignore any of them. To me it was really difficult to choose a method. Because I think the method which will successful is also depend on the type of the students. In a class there are many students. They are different from one another. In our class we have learnt about many methods of teaching a language. They are- * The Direct Method * Grammar Translation Method (GTM) * Audio Lingual Method (ALM) * Presentation, Practice and Production Method (PPP) * Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) * Community Language Learning (CLL) * Silent Way * Total Physical Response (TPR) To learn a language we almost use every method. Example- when we start learning a language we do everything in the target language. We cannot use any other language in the class. Sometimes we avoid the rules and give emphasis on the......
