Developing Specialist Language Styles: Research & Application

This resource is for teachers who want to know what features of specialist language cause problems for their students and would like help in deciding what they should do about them.The resource comes in two parts: this book and a website.This book describes the results of extensive research into secondary school student language difficulties with science text. It also serves as a guide to the web-based component of the resource. The book serves as a model for increasing student access to other specialist language styles and to science at higher levels.The website, thinkliteracy.com, is built around a system for diagnosing language features that are causing problems for particular students. Once the language difficulties have been identified the system will produce individual and class reports, and construct a worksheet consisting of exercises chosen specifically to target each individual student'™s difficulties. The site allows users to mount their own tests and replicate the research at its heart in their own subject areas. Both book and website are useful beyond secondary school science classes. view full description
