  • A Variable Suggestion for Language Education Research: Vocabulary
           Coefficient

    • Authors: Özay Karadağ
      Abstract: Social and humanities research are tried to explainthe social phenomena by measuring characteristics that can be changed byindividuals or groups. Language -when the individual is the subject matter-emerges as one of the most basic features. The measurement of languageperformance and the indexes that can be built through it can easily be relatedto other characteristics of the individual. One of these features is thevocabulary. The precise identification of the vocabulary of individualsrequires longitudinal and very laborious work. In this respect, it is notpossible to carry out a long-term vocabulary search for each sample of aquantitative study.. This situation requires another solution that will showthe level of vocabulary. The Vocabulary Coefficient value obtained by dividingthe number of words a person uses in any given expression into the total numberof words used is an important clue in describing the richness of individualvocabulary. This value is related to the use of vocabulary and can beassociated with many other features. This study deals with how to use theVocabulary Coefficient in quantitative language education researches as avariable.

           Lİterature Teaching

    • Authors: Sevgi Sevim Çıkrıkçı
      Abstract: The aim of the study was todiscuss the effects of lexical items related to emotional meaning on themeaning-making process in texts and how such items could be incorporated intothe process of literature teaching. For this purpose, answers were sought tothe following questions: 1) How do the conceptual differences and definitionsof emotional meaning related lexical items become evident' 2) What kind of possibilities do lexical units, bound toemotional meaning, provide in terms of literature teaching' This study aimed toexamine the concept of emotional meaning which provides a multi-dimensionalperspective in the light of linguistic point of view and to create a point ofview on how that concept could be linked to the teaching of literature. To thatend, in the first part of the study, the results of a literature survey thatwas done to define the types of emotional meaning were presented, and, thus,conceptual features of the types of emotional meaning was discussed. In thesecond part, the issue of how the types of emotional meaning determined in thelight of the conceptual framework and the differences among them would belinked to literature teaching was discussed; the role and contribution ofliterary texts in the teaching of those items were delineated. The mainargument of this study is that incorporating the distinguishing characteristicsof the types of emotional meaning to the teaching process has a positive effecton the level of students' comprehension of texts. Therefore, this study primarilyaimed to present a perspective based on preliminary observation towardemotional meaning types for the purpose of incorporating them into the teachingprocess.

  • A Discussion of the Ins and Outs of L2 Pronunciation Instruction: A Clash
           of Methodologies

    • Authors: Arif Bakla; Mehmet Demirezen
      Abstract: The value attached topronunciation has kept changing continually in the methodological history oflanguage instruction. Depending on the nature of methodological considerationsthat dominated research and teaching agenda, it either received too muchattention or was marginalized. This study sets out to provide a comprehensiveoverview of pronunciation instruction from the 1950s to the present day, with aparticular reference to popular bipolar debates that characterized thismethodologically fluctuating period. Moreover, it attempts to examine thegeneral outlook on pronunciation and summarize major issues concerning what componentsof pronunciation to include in the syllabus and how to teach it. The study alsodiscusses the role of computers and technology in pronunciation instruction byincorporating data from empirical studies. Although some of the debates havebeen inconclusive up until today, the intellectual effort put in the processseems to have proved fruitful in providing some guidelines for dealing with thechallenging task of improving learners’ pronunciation.

  • Legibility of Elementary School Students’ Handwritings from the
           Perspective of Parents and Teachers

    • Authors: Mehmet Katrancı; Yasemin Kuşdemir, Fatih Arslan
      Abstract: The purpose of thisresearch was to determine the views of parents and teachers on the legibility ofthe handwritings of elementary school students. The research, in which thedescriptive survey model was used, was conducted between the months of Octoberand January in the fall semester of the 2016-2017 academic year in elementaryschools in the central Kırıkkale province. The study group consisted of 117 elementaryschool classroom teachers and 139 parents. As data collection tools, (1) The Parent Questionnaire on the Legibilityof Elementary School Students’ Handwritings and (2) The Teacher Questionnaireon the Legibility of Elementary School Students’ Handwritings, which wereprepared by the researchers, were used. Descriptive analysis and contentanalysis techniques were used for data analysis. The results showed that halfof the teachers considered the handwritings of their students legible. Amongthe reasons for the teachers’ considering elementary school students’ handwritings illegible were that thestudents did not like to write, that they behaved carelessly, hastily andsloppily when they wrote, that cursive handwriting was not appropriate to thedevelopmental level of elementary school students, that the writing educationin the first grade was inadequate, and that the students held their pencilsincorrectly in their hands as they wrote. Approximately 62% of the parents whoparticipated in the survey thought that their children were successful inwriting legibly while 37% thought that their children had to improve thelegibility of their handwritings. 62% of the parents reported that they were tryingto help their children’s handwriting practices at home while 38% reported thatthey did not provide support to their children for their handwriting practices.

      Abstract: In this study, the level ofthe use of cohesive tools in the written works of Egyptian learners learningTurkish as a foreign language was investigated. The aim of the research was todetermine the level of use of cohesive tools by the learners who were studyingin Egypt and offer solutions in this regard. The study was conducted in Egyptwith 100 students at A2, B1, B2 and C1 levels out of the 500 students whoformed the entire population at the Yunus Emre Institute in the TurkishCultural Center of Cairo in the 2014-2015 academic year. According to theresults, the frequency of the use of cohesive devices by the learners from themost frequent to the least frequent were lexicalcohesion, conjunctions, ellipsis, reference and substitution. Although an increase was observed both in thefrequency of the use of cohesive devices and their levels of correct use, itwas found that the levels of the use of cohesive tools in the written works ofthe learners was low.  It was found thatin all the written works that were examined, relative pronouns in referencetools, dropping of suffixes in ellipsis, the entirety of substitution elements,and conjunctions of distinction, sequencing, explanation and assumption werealmost never used.

           Language towards Reading Turkish Texts: A Validity and Reliability Study

    • Authors: Muhammed Eyyüp Sallabaş; Talha Göktentürk, Emre Yazıcı
      Abstract: In the process of teachingTurkish as a foreign language, the main instrument in the process of developingstudents' reading comprehension skills is texts. In this study, a Likert-typescale was developed to determine the attitudes of learners who learned Turkishas a foreign language towards texts in Turkish. The study was initiated with apool of 90-items developed by the researchers; afterwards, in the light of theopinions obtained from 5 experts, a 44-item scale was drafted as a result ofthe conducted content analysis, using Lawshe analysis, and was administered to192 learners who were learning Turkish as a foreign language at B2 and higherlevels. Through exploratory factor analysis, it was determined that the itemsclustered under 4 factors, that this accounted for approximately 48.54% of thetotal variance, and that there were significant correlations among the factors.Item-total and item-rest correlations were found to be significant anddiscriminatory. At the end of the study, the Cronbach's Alpha coefficient wasfound to be ,799 for the entire scale. The Cronbach’sAlpha coefficient for the first factor was ,827; for the second factor, it was,807; for the third factor, it was ,59; and for the fourth factor, it was ,730;its variance among the factors ranged between α = ,659 and ,827. The Spearman-Brown coefficient of the scalewas ,853; The Guttman Split-Half coefficient was ,849, and the correlationcoefficient between the two forms was ,744.

    • Authors: Emine Çöklü Özkan
      Abstract: Theaim of this study is to examine the effect of the creative drama method on 4thgraders’ acquisition of reading comprehension skills. To that end, experimentalmethod was used in the research. The research was conducted with 4th gradestudents who attended the Saray elementary school in the Pursaklar District of theprovince of Ankara during the Spring semester of the 2016/2017 academic year. Takinginto consideration the pre-test scores of all 4th grade sections asthe selection criterion, two sections that had similar attributes were selectedas the test group – section 4/C (29 students) and the control group – section 4/K(29 students). A 16-hour drama workshop, based on the pre-determined learningoutcomes on the reading comprehension skills of the Turkish course, was carriedout with the test group students. As for the control group, a 16-hour Turkish instructionbased on the same learning outcomes was given by the researcher, using thetraditional method. At the end of eight weeks, post-test was given to the testand control group students. At the end of the study, the data showed that theworkshop model, based on creative drama, provided increase in academicachievement at a significant level in the test group. In terms of improving thereading comprehension skill in the Turkish course, the creative drama methodeffectively leads to rapid progress in newly learned subjects, and carriesstudents’ reading comprehension skills to a higher level in previously learnedsubjects. In addition, while creative drama, which concretizes the learningprocess, improves the reading comprehension skill, it offers a fun learningenvironment that makes students happy.

The stories narrated by the childrenwere recorded on video, having obtained the consent of their parents, andtranscribed verbatim. In the research that used the error analysis method, thestories were analyzed by coding the errors made by the children in terms of grammar, syntax, word choice and phonetics. The results of the study showed that in children whospeak the language of the culture they live in activelyand have difficulty speaking Turkish and, thus, prefer simple sentences, thearea where most mistakes were made was grammar,and this was followed by mistakes in wordchoice, syntax and phonetics respectively.In terms of the number of the mistakes made on the basis of gender, it wasfound that boys made more mistakes than girls, and that girls were morecompetent in language proficiency than boys.
