SHE had known him but a little while and had never taken much notice of him. She had no idea when or where they had first met till after their engagement he told her that it was at a dance to which some friends had brought him. She certainly paid no attention to him then and if she danced with him it was because she was good-natured and was glad to dance with any one who asked her. She didn't know him from Adam when a day or two later at another dance he came up and spoke to her. Then she she remarked that he was at every dance she went to.

"You know, I've danced with you at least a dozen times now and you must tell me your name," she said to him at last in her laughing way.

He was obviously taken aback.

"Do you mean to say you don't know it? I was introduced to you."

"Oh, but people always mumble. I shouldn't be at all surprised if you hadn't the ghost of an idea what mine was."

He smiled at her. His face was grave and a trifle stern, but his smile was very sweet.

"Of course I know it." He was silent for a moment or two. "Have you no curiosity?" he asked then.

"As much as most women."

"It didn't occur to you to ask somebody or other what my name was?"

She was faintly amused; she wondered why he thought it could in the least interest her; but she liked to please, so she looked at him with that dazzling smile of hers and her beautiful eyes, dewy ponds under forest trees, held an enchanting kindness.

"Well, what is it?"

"Walter Fane."

She did not know why he came to dances, he did not dance very well, and he seemed to know few people. She had a passing thought that he was in love with her: but she dismissed it with a shrug of the shoulders: she had known girls who thought every man they met was in love with them and had always found them absurd. But she gave Walter Fane just a little more of her attention. He certainly did…...

...TEACHERS By: Laura Litalien Keiser University 02/05/2013 Education should be a part of everyone's life. A good education offers something for everyone, whether it is on the simple level or a more complex one. Education should provide an opportunity for students to develop a strong sense of creativity, a high self esteem, and a lifelong respect for learning. Education should help students establish a strong sense of confidence in themselves. A teacher will be one factor that helps a student learn and progress along their way through life. Teachers combine their own ideas with other people's to be able to give a good education to their students. What should the relationship be, between students and teachers in the classroom? The answer to this question, I have found, has many different answers. Each teacher, in my opinion, has their set ways to teach, in which they believe is the right way. So no matter which answer you come up with, the person next to you might come up with a totally opposite answer. This explains why we ask this question in the first place. No one answer is exactly right. There are advantages and disadvantages to two different pedagogical means of which I will discuss: (1) The idea that teachers force issues on students and (2) The idea that teachers sit back and let the students be free to say what they feel. Education is one of the main ingredients in forming a successful society. Our education system here in the USA is very......

...Objective: to obtain a preliminary idea of what students think of Globalization. 2. What do you think Globalization/Anti-globalization is after viewing the video? - Any answer - The teacher should point out that Globalization / Anti-globalization is a very confusing and complex phenomenon. This leads to the next theme: a definition for Globalization Globalization Worksheet 1 Globalization and You p. 6 What is Globalization A study has shown that in 1984, out of 1600 magazines published in 55 countries, only 3 articles have the word ‘globalization’ in their headings or abstracts, but in 1994 the number increased 37 times to 112. In 2002 up to 400,000 such articles could be found in the Yahoo search engine. One can say that the word has been overused. Are people referring to the same thing or phenomenon when they use the word ‘globalization’? Group Discussion Read the following source materials, and share a relevant experience in your everyday life. Source A In terms of trade, finance and communication, the markets and cultures of various countries have never penetrated each other so rapidly and widely. We now can smoke Marlboro, eat sushi, use Microsoft software, receive acupuncture treatment, read Cosmopolitan, buy take-away pizza, and watch CNN anywhere in the world. English has become a global language. Skiing resorts, stocks exchanges and airports all look like the same everywhere. Blue jeans, underwear and sportswear can be seen everywhere.......

...altercation with a classmate. As the classroom teacher began intervention, FL began to verbally attack the teacher, and then began to threaten the safety of the teacher. This paper will discuss the breakdown of the handling of this situation, and the final result, the consequence, that the student, FL was given, and the rebuttal on the part of the parent. FL is a Special Education student in a regular education classroom. FL’s learning disability revolves around reading, and reading comprehension. FL has also been diagnosed as having ADHD by a neuropsychologist. Once a week an Instructional Aide goes into the classroom to work with FL in a one-on-one method on his assignments pertaining to reading, and reading to answer questions. This is done in the general education classroom, and at other times it is done in the vacant classroom. There is a current IEP on file and the regular education teacher is well aware of the goals and guidelines spelled out in the IEP. FL is also an English Language Learner (ELL), and he is on Probation for incidences that have occurred outside of school hours. The classroom teacher had just completed her lecture and question and answer on the U.S. History assignment. While she was circulating the room checking for understanding she heard a conversation between FL and another regular education student, (SB), also male. It was obvious they were not discussing the assignment, and more obvious that if the teacher did not curtail the conversation that......

Pupils' Achievement in English and Teacher Competencies

...et. al. 1966; Jenks et. al. 1972). Other evidence suggests that factors like class size (Glass, et. al. 1982; Mosteller, 1995), teacher qualification (Ferguson, 1991), school size (Holler, 1993), and other school variables may play an important role in influencing learning. As new standard for new learning continues to be introduced in the country, hence, greater attention is given to the role teacher plays in student achievement. While some evidence suggests that better qualified teachers may make a difference in student learning at the school and district levels. There is also increasing inquiry into the exact predictors that affect teacher efficiency vis-à-vis student level of achievement. Teaching competence and teacher impact on students may largely determine whether or not the student will fail or succeed in his studies. Through students’ individual differences need to be considered in the teaching-learning process, a very challenging role of improving mankind and enlightening the world to guide the young to the right path lies in the teacher’s hands. Likewise, the educational progress of our country relies on the young generation who needless to say, will bear the progeny of this country. Hence, the vital role of teachers in shaping the country’s leaders and workers lie in the hands of the present generation. However, teacher competency is still believed as a key variable that influence students’ level of achievement. Pupil achievement is, thus, used......

Level of Preparedness of the English Teachers in Implementing the Outcomes Based Approach in Teaching Grammar

...CHAPTER I THE PROBLEM AND ITS SETTING I. Introduction Teachers are the authorities inside the classroom. They are the one who facilitates the students for them to be able to learn. Every teacher differs from one another when it comes to pedagogical skills. Because of the modernization of the current generation, system of education was also affected. Major changes were made due to what professionals/critics noticed about the students’ performance in the school. They observed that nowadays, traditional education system may not be that still effective like before. In this kind of system, the teacher is the main source of information and the students act as the audience. Traditional teaching is concerned with the teacher being the controller of the learning environment. Power and responsibility are held by the teacher and they play the role of instructor (in the form of lectures) and decision maker (in regards to curriculum content and specific outcomes). They regard students as having 'knowledge holes' that need to be filled with information. In short, the traditional teacher views that it is the teacher that causes learning to occur (Novak, 1998). Before, students here in the Philippines were exposed to IBE or Input Based Education in which it was a teacher-centred learning process. Now, it was transformed to OBE or Outcomes-Based Education. It was introduced in the Philippines last July 2012 by the CHED or Commission on Higher Education. OBE has become a focal point for......

Teacher Pedagogic Competence in English

...Pupils' Achievement In English And Teacher Competencies Pupils' Achievement In English And Teacher Competencies CHAPTER I The Problem and Its Background Introduction For many years, educators and researchers have debated which school variables influence student achievement. As policy-makers became more involved in school reform, this suggestion takes on new importance since their many initiatives rely on presumed relationships between various education-related factors and learning outcomes. Some researches have suggested that “schools bring little influence to bear upon a child’s achievement test is independent of his background and general social context.” (Coleman et. al. 1966; Jenks et. al. 1972). Other evidence suggests that factors like class size (Glass, et. al. 1982; Mosteller, 1995), teacher qualification (Ferguson, 1991), school size (Holler, 1993), and other school variables may play an important role in influencing learning. As new standard for new learning continues to be introduced in the country, hence, greater attention is given to the role teacher plays in student achievement.

“What Do We Say to the Client Who Still Insists on Having a “Native Speaker” English Teacher?” an Analysis of the Prejudices Surrounding Non-Native English Speaker Teachers (Nnests) and the Obstacles for Fostering

...“What do we say to the client who still insists on having a “native speaker” English teacher?” An analysis of the prejudices surrounding non-native English speaker teachers (NNESTs) and the obstacles for fostering cooperation between NNESTs and native English speaker teachers (NESTs) in ESL courses in Indonesia. Word count 2997 The spread of English across the globe in recent years had led to English being taught by many more NNESTs, a shift which has produced as many inconsistencies as it has benefits for both students and the teachers themselves. This paper will examine the types, level and origins of discrimination faced by NNESTs in the EF franchise of English language schools in Indonesia of which the author has 10 years’ experience working in. It will also assess the obstacles which hinder cooperation between NESTs and NNESTs within this context. The number of NNESTs is now at an all time high worldwide, fuelled by the rapid growth in the popularity of English language learning (Graddol 2006). Canagarajah (2005) estimates that NNESTs account for 80% of all English teachers, across both non-English and English speaking countries. Issues surrounding how NNESTs are viewed have become a hot topic for ESL school’s directors of studies, ESL students, parents of students (who want the best for their children, at the best price of course), NESTs and NNESTs (of themselves and each other) and not least the academics who write about the relative merits and demerits of......

Im an English Teacher

...The female’s characters are presented in lot of ways in of mice and men and Shake Spare Macbeth. In my essay I shall compare both of the female characters the ways they are presented. “Conduct me to mine host, we love him highly, and shall continue our graces towards him” He says that he will continue to give him good things, to keep Macbeth on his side, as he would be a powerful enemy. Macbeth is a leader of the army and probably commands the loyalty of the army, which would be a powerful tool if he were ever disagreeing with the king. The king is trying to avoid a situation like that by hinting that he is going to do more things for him, so that Macbeth will wait and see what he does before taking matters into his own hands. Duncan also think that Macbeth loves him and would only do something like that as a last resort, showing his naivety again of Macbeth’s character, and specially him underestimation of lady Macbeth. In a soliloquy, Macbeth begins to think about the practicalities, showing his real intent to go through with it. “If it were done, when it’s done, then here well if it were done quickly.” Here Macbeth admits that he does want to kill Duncan, but also realises that he must take his chances while he can to avoid getting caught, or him missing his opportunity and never getting the chance to become king. He says this, so that the audience know what he is going to do it that night, so it builds the suspense. He still uses the word “if” indicating that......
