LANGUAGE REMEDIATION ACROSS TEACHERS’ ORIENTATION IN LANGUAGE DISFLUENCIES

Results revealed that the remediating language teachers are moderately aware about language disorders and disfluencies. After the teachers received the orientation, all the indicators had an “extremely aware” adjectival rating. There was a significant increase in the evaluation scores of teacher-respondents before and after the orientation was given. Furthermore, there is a significant difference between the teachers’ level of awareness before and after the orientation. It is evident that the mean scores of students increased by just 0.05. Before the teachers received the orientation, students’ test scores got a mean of 27.07 and 27.12 thereafter. There was no significant difference in the pretest and posttest scores of the student-respondents. There was also no significant positive relationship between the teachers’ level of awareness on language disfluencies and the students academic performance measured in scores, r(38) =.23,p>.15 before the orientation was given to remedial teachers. Before the orientation, the correlation between the teachers’ level of awareness and the students’ level of performance had a small strength of association (r=-0.23). This further means that when teachers’ level of awareness increases, the students’ level of performance decreases and vice versa. After the orientation, it had a large strength of association (r=0.88). This further means that when the teachers’ level of awareness increases, the students’ level of performance also increases and vice versa.

ARGUMENT FOR TENURE IN THE AMERICAN HIGHER EDUCATION

The article presents the arguments concerning tenure in academic institutions. Proponents of tenure argue that it protects professors from social sanctions, such as criticism by political or religious powers outside campus that may disagree with the professor’s research findings and thus might pressure the institution to fire him or her. Opponents of tenure argue that the security that comes with tenure allows professors to become incompetent and slothful.  After assessing the advantages and disadvantages of tenure, this article concludes that tenure could be an incentive attracting competent faculty members and allowing them to embark on long-term, risky research projects.

THE INFLUENCE OF MEDIA IN CHILDREN’S LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT

Along with the rise of child-targeted programming became the belief that TV would be a very effective educational tool that could subconsciously or at a subliminal level feed information to the young mind and, with that, vocabulary growth would occur. Much programming was created that dealt with the direct educating of children that tried to create a way of communication with the child as a target. The paper discusses the influence of TV in children’s language development. It investigates the notion that children’s educational TV programs may result in vocabulary learning. It stresses the values of these educational programs, but also emphasizes that TV and other screen media have become a reality of life, and it is wise to utilize them only as a supportive tool for educating children. The interactions of parents co-viewing such programs with their children are necessary to optimize the child’s language learning from TV programs that target children. The paper concludes with the implications of the current research as well as suggestions for further research.
