  • Implementing the Flipped Approach in an English-Medium-Instruction
           Educational Psychology Course: Student Learning Outcome and Perception

    • Authors: I-Chia Chou
      Pages: 1 - 12
      Abstract: Academic courses taught in English are already difficult for many EFL students. This is especially the case if the class is conducted primarily through lectures. The aim of this study is to show that the flipped approach (FA) in an English-medium-instruction (EMI) course may be an alternative to the traditional teacher-lecture course for EFL undergraduates, if certain weaknesses in the approach are addressed. The students overall had positive perceptions of the FA, but perhaps more important and less frequently noted is that, by using the FA approach, EFL instructors can more clearly identify student-learning challenges. It is not clear, however, if the FA approach can subsequently address these challenges. Therefore, some appropriate pedagogical suggestions and shortcomings are given for those who plan to implement the FA in an EMI course.

  • Professional Development Workshops: Determination and Fulfillment of
           Educational Requirements in Measurement-Evaluation

    • Authors: Gülden Gürsoy, Esen Turan Özpolat
      Pages: 13 - 27
      Abstract: The present study aimed to determine the educational requirements for teachers in measurement-evaluation and whether the professional development (PD) workshops organized based on these requirements have an impact on evaluation literacy, attitudes, and self-efficacy perceptions of the teachers. The mixed-method design, where both quantitative and qualitative data were collected, was employed. A total of 204 middle school teachers participated in the study that aimed to determine the educational requirements of teachers in measurement-evaluation. For maximum diversity, 17 science teachers with different genders (10 male 7 female) and seniority between 3 and 15 years attended PD workshops. Five data collection instruments, including a survey form, three scales, and an interview form, were used to collect the study data. In quantitative analysis, descriptive statistics, dependent groups t-test, multilinear regression analysis were employed and the content analysis method was used in qualitative analysis. The analysis of the study data demonstrated that there were positive changes in assessment literacy, attitudes, and self-efficacy perceptions of the teachers towards measurement-evaluation, and it was determined that the workshop model was applicable in PD programs. As teachers’ knowledge of assessment increased, they increasingly relied on self-knowledge and decided to adopt the new assessment techniques they learned. After the training requirements of the teachers were determined, it was recommended that the professional development training should be supported to meet their needs in workshops based on the study findings.

  • A Pre-Research Field Work Partnership Agreement Will Benefit Literacy
           Research Project Partnerships

    • Authors: Latasha Holt
      Pages: 28 - 32
      Abstract: Challenges exist between the university course professors, pre-service teachers, and field work partnerships in literacy education programs. This article discusses a need to create and implement a pre-research field work agreement to increase the efficiency of literacy research projects conducted between the university and the practicum school partnership. Based on collected formal and informal research, disconnects are hindering the overall literacy research project goals from being accomplished. Specific challenging issues that are identified include ensuring placement diversity, geographical issues, researcher access to records, and adequate placement opportunities within the needed content focus supported by a highly qualified mentor. Resolutions to the challenges can be better addressed if a systematic, organized pre-research field work partnership agreement is in place.

  • Lower Secondary Students’ Arabic Speaking Anxiety: A Foreign
           Language Literacy Perspective

    • Authors: Mohd Ieruwan Mohamed Mokhtar
      Pages: 33 - 39
      Abstract: Speaking in a foreign language classroom can be extremely anxiety-provoking for some students. There are many studies on foreign language anxiety (FLA). The studies show that anxiety influences achievement and performance in speaking. However, most of the previous studies have investigated FLA in English-speaking contexts. Hence, this study aims to investigate speaking anxiety among Arabic Language learners in secondary schools from the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The students (n=40) were selected following the random sampling method. The established questionnaire of Foreign Language Classroom Anxiety Scale (FLCAS) developed by Horwitz et al. (1986) was used for collecting the data. This questionnaire consists of four factors namely test anxiety, communication apprehension, anxiety in the classroom and fear of negative evaluation. The researcher followed descriptive statistical methods including means and standard deviation values to address the research questions. The study shows that the process of learning the Arabic Language has significant impact on students in learning a foreign language, especially in daily secondary schools. The findings show several concerns exist among the students while speaking Arabic in the classroom. The results can help Arabic Language teachers to understand students’ anxiety in the process of teaching the language in the daily/non-boarding secondary schools which will contribute to literacy of Arabic Language at large.

  • Interpersonal Relations and Achievement among University Upgrading (Grade
           V) Teacher Students

    • Authors: Helen C. A. Waiswa, Peter K. Baguma, Joseph Oonyu
      Pages: 40 - 52
      Abstract: Interpersonal relations refer to an intelligence and competence that enable the establishment and maintenance of mutually satisfying relationships with a variety of people across diverse situations. Academic achievement refers to satisfactory learner performance as shown by grades attained in course-work, tests, continuous assessment and end-of-semester examinations. The study interrogated the relationship between interpersonal relations (IR) and academic achievement (AA) among university upgrading (Grade V) teacher students in Ugandan universities. Using a quantitative sample of 473 and a qualitative sample of 75 upgrading Grade V teacher-students from Makerere University and Uganda Christian University (UCU), a cross-sectional survey and interview were carried out. The results showed that IR was positively and significantly related to subjective AA (r = .23, p < .001). However, it was not significantly related to objective AA – CGPA (r = .04, p > .05) thus, supporting the hypothesis: There is a positive relationship between IR and AA among university upgrading teacher-students. Qualitative findings showed that team spirit, group work and collegial relations were important aspects of IR. In conclusion, the study stressed collaborative approaches to IR as useful in the 21st century. As a contribution to policy and practice, the study recommends that: for better AA, teacher-students need to have a holistic curriculum to train on IR. Knowledge of negative and positive perceptions of IR are critical for the furtherance of both individual and collaborative functions in teaching, learning, training, and research.

  • The Relationship between Teachers’ Political Skills and Work
           Engagement

    • Authors: Aynur B. Bostanci
      Pages: 53 - 63
      Abstract: The purpose of the present study is to ascertain the relationship between teachers’ political skills and work engagement. Correlational design is employed to complete the process of this research. The population of this study is composed of 4494 teachers working in Usak Province of Turkey. Convenience sampling was used in this study. The sample size of the study was made up 297 teachers. The data were collected through ‘Political Skill Inventory’ and ‘Work Engagement Scale.’ The data analysis was conducted via arithmetic mean, standard deviation, Pearson Moment Correlation Analysis and path analysis. According to the results, the levels of teachers’ political skills and work engagement were high. Another finding of the study revealed that there was a moderate, positive and significant relationship between the dimensions of social astuteness, interpersonal influence skill, networking ability and sincerity and the level of work engagement. The research has also showed that the fact that teachers’ political skills had the dimensions of interpersonal influence skill and sincerity had a positive, high level and significant effect on their work engagement. In addition, it was concluded that teachers’ level of social astuteness and networking ability did not predict their levels of work engagement. In light of those results, it is recommended that certain activities to improve teachers’ political skills must be organized in schools.

  • The Effect of Psycho-Education Program Developed for Sexual Abuse on
           Counseling Teachers’ Reporting Sexual Abuse and Information and Risk
           Recognition Attitudes

    • Authors: Adem Peker, Serkan Cengiz, Aynur Karabacak Çelik
      Pages: 74 - 86
      Abstract: This study aimed to analyze the effect of the psycho-education program for sexual abuse on counseling teachers’ attitudes towards reporting sexual abuse and their knowledge and risk recognition levels. The research was by using the embedded design, one of the mixed method approaches. In the quantitative dimension of the studyquasiexperimental designwith pretest-posttest groups was performed, while in the qualitative dimension, the opinions of counselors were included. The study group of the research consisted of eight counselors in the experimental group and eight counselors in the control group, working in schools affiliated to the Ministry of National Education. A two-Factor ANOVA model for mixed measurements was utilized to analyze the experimental study. Paired t-test for dependent samples was used to analyze the pretest and posttest scores of the participants. Content analysis was used in the analysis of qualitative data. The quantitative findings of the study showed that the psycho-education program applied to the experimental group displayed a significant difference between the counseling teachers’ attitudes towards reporting sexual abuse and their knowledge and risk recognition levels compared to the control group. In the qualitative results of the study, it was observed that the counselors classified the characteristics of children at risk in terms of exposure to sexual abuse under the two themes of family factors and lack of social skills. In another result, it was discovered that children exposed to sexual abuse displayed behavioral and emotional symptoms. It is thought that the training that counselors will receive in schools on sexual abuse will be beneficial for the protection of the mental health of children and young people.

  • Xenophobia and Social Contact in University Students

    • Authors: Faruk Bozdağ
      Pages: 87 - 97
      Abstract: Due to increasing human mobility in today’s world, relations among groups are becoming more and more important. As people with different cultures come in close contact they begin to influence inter-group attitudes (Barni et al., 2020; Turner et al., 2020). Xenophobia, which can be described as negative attitudes towards migrants, is one of the most serious problems between groups caused by migration (Peterie & Neil, 2020). This study aims to investigate the relationship between social contact and xenophobic attitudes towards Syrian migrants among university students in Turkey. Data were collected from 142 university students through the Xenophobia Scale and the Revised Social Contact Scale. The data obtained were analyzed by multiple linear regression technique. The findings show that while the quality of social contact significantly predicts the xenophobic attitudes of university students, the quantity of social contact does not. The quality of social contact explains 43% of university students’ xenophobic attitudes. It is understood that the quality of social contact is highly effective in reducing xenophobic attitudes towards migrants.

      Abstract: Jean Kirshner holds a Ph.D. in Education and Human Resource Development from Colorado State University and specializes in literacy and teacher education. I came to know Jean and her school adoption project in the process of publishing her article in our previous issue. She graciously accepted my invitation for this interview that we carried out through emails in July, 2020. In this interview, you will be reading about Jean and the impact she and her colleagues have created in the lives of school children. You will learn more about Jean as you read through, but here is a brief introduction. Jean started her career as the Early Childhood Director at Saint Ignatius Grammar School, Chicago in 1988. After two years she joined the Child Opportunity Program in Denver as a Head Start Supervising Teacher. In 1994, she became a kindergarten teacher and has been a First Grade Teacher since 2006 in Douglas County School District, Parker, Colorado. She co-founded the Belize Education Program in 2007 which is the main topic of this interview. The world needs more inspiring educators like Jean who contribute selflessly especially to the underprivileged communities that need more love and attention.
