[An Asian Publication] How does a teacher get normally dull-as-ditch-water reading theory across to his or her students? In the dark ages, students learned how to answer reading comprehensions accurately by trial and error and by practice. These days, what we know about reading theory can take the mystery and hit-and-miss element out of learning how to answer reading comprehension questions either for the mundane purpose of passing college English examinations or, more usefully, to apply relevant skills to the reading students have to do in college. Students learn more effectively and more quickly when they are taught why certain strategies benefit them. If they can internalize the theory they can buy into it. In this book, each chapter starts with the theory or reasons why certain skills are useful and how they can be mastered, followed by comprehension exercises. Each chapter also contains a second reading passage on a topic that is commonly found at college level. Each comprehension exercise comprises questions which test skills in surface-level reading, understanding nuances, making inferences, giving opinions, and summarizing as well as gauge students’ vocabulary range.

NEW A WRITER’S WORKSHOP Crafting Paragraphs, Building Essays, 3rd Edition

http://www.mhhe.com/bailey1e This two-book developmental writing series with help students become more effective and more confident writers by meeting students where they are and by helping them get to where they want to go. One of the authors’ primary goals in teaching writing is to help their students explore how college writing can enhance students’ lives and help them achieve their goals, whether academic, professional, or beyond. Such exploration often begins with igniting a change in how our students look at writing. Far too often, students come to the first day of class thinking of the course as something simply to “get through,” something without any real connection to what goes on outside the classroom, when, in fact, writing is an essential part of their journey. With these goals in mind, the authors have written, developed, and student-tested Going Places (P¿E), and its partner text On the Go (S¿P), so you can meet students where they are and use writing to take them where they want to go. After all, engaged students and good writers do well in their classes; they retain content better and participate more fully. They use writing to learn and to share what they know. In addition, critical thinkers and good writers participate more fully in the workplace and are more likely to advance. Whatever their destination, effective writing will make a fundamental difference in each student’s journey.

Powered by technology, writing and research have changed dramatically in the years since the first hardcover handbooks were published. Today, your students don’t just write papers; they write papers and create multimedia presentations. They don’t just do research; they do library research and sift through huge amounts of online information. They don’t just read print; they analyze text and images. And they don’t just come to class; they’re part of a learning community -- in class and online. These changes have put new demands on composition courses, demands that The McGraw-Hill Handbook 2/e, written by Maimon, Peritz, and Yancey, meets. The McGraw-Hill Handbook 2/e is a comprehensive composition handbook designed for class use as well as reference. Now with new attention to outcomes; expanded coverage of integrating sources, argument, and visual rhetoric; and enhanced coverage of grammar, it equips students to use writing to learn; connect writing to thinking and reading; apply practical strategies to specific college assignments; connect their writing to life outside college; use digital design as a tool for presenting their work in print and online; learn how to pose a research question; think critically about sources and manage information; document electronic and print sources across a range of disciplines; and learn how to be editors of their own writing. The McGraw-Hill Handbook 2/e is based on the successful brief handbook, A Writer’s Resource. Like A Writer’s Resource, The McGraw-Hill Handbook 2/e benefits from the authors’ 20+ years of research into writing. This comprehensive book also shares A Writer’s Resource’s focus on academic writing and technology, with a student-friendly style. With a greater depth of rhetorical coverage and practice exercises, The McGraw-Hill Handbook 2/e is a complete text for the composition classroom. NEW TO THIS EDITION v “Resources for Writers” Foldouts: Four quick-reference foldouts include the latest MLA and APA documentation information, fixes for the college writers’ most common editing errors that college writers make, grammar help for multilingual writers, a directory of resources in 30 disciplines, and a world map. v New Attention to Outcomes: Boxes at each part opening indicate how the material in that section of the book will help students develop frequently assessed skills such as rhetorical knowledge, mastery of the writing process, and critical thinking. Checklists throughout the book on topics such as avoiding plagiarism and grammar diagnostic quizzes—now online—help students assess their own work.

SOUNDS, SYMBOLS AND SPELLINGS

Phonics and Beginning Reading offers an overview of phonics within the context of theories of reading. It shows how phonics can be an exceptionally valuable tool in helping children learn to read as part of a balanced reading programme. In addition to providing a mapping between the letters of English and how they are pronounced using standard Internatiional Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) symbols, the book shows how these rules for symbol-sound correspondences can be utilised by children as they develop skills in the decoding of texts. Practical suggestions for the classroom are also given. Furthermore, the book discusses issues that arise when phonics is adopted as part of a reading programme for children in Southeast Asia, largely because of idiosyncratic features of pronunciation found in the region.

Adam Brown 2005 ISBN: 978-0-07-124772-6

[An Asian Publication] The English spelling system is based on the alphabetic principle, that letters in the spelling represent individual consonant and vowel sounds in the pronunciation. However, for various reasons, many of them related to the history of the language, the English spelling system is perhaps the worst example of an alphabetic system in existence. As a result, transcription systems for representing the pronunciation of English in a one-to-one way have had to be devised. Sounds, Symbols and Spellings explains the rationale for, and gives familiarisation practice in the symbols of the transcription system used in all good modern British English dictionaries.

This book is a collection of articles on research into the pronunciation of Singapore English by scholars from Singapore, Asia (Japan, Taiwan), Europe (the United Kingdom, Germany), Australia and the United States of America.

English in Singapore: An Introduction gives a broad overview of the history, status and features of this New English. It briefly describes the position of New Englishes within the range of English-speaking countries around the world, before outlining the historical advent and spread of English in Singapore. The present-day status of Singapore English, and various analytical frameworks proposed for describing it, are examined, including the fact that Singaporeans speak English and at least one other language. An exploration of the types of judgement that speakers make about language is necessary before embarking on a systematic description of features of Singapore English. These features include vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation, both segmental (vowels and consonants) and suprasegmental (stress, rhythm and intonation). These features are recapped in an analysis of a scene from Beauty World, investigating the use of Singapore English in creative literature. The final chapter considers the implications that Singapore English has for Singaporean teachers. The book provides a general introduction to Singapore English, as it covers all major aspects, and incorporates the results of research carried out over the last two decades. It can be used as a coursebook, as it includes several exercises for readers to investigate their own use of English. It will also be important reading for researchers, teachers and students in Singapore, as well as anyone interested in the development and characteristics of the New variety of English.

The second area is of great interest to Singaporeans as it is important to ascertain how intelligible this prominent and vibrant Asian variety of English is internationally and not just intra-nationally. The common feature of all the articles is that they make use of data from the NIE Corpus of Spoken Singapore English, which consists of high-quality recordings that are ideally suited to detailed phonetic research. Therefore, even though the researchers are investigating a wide range of different topics connected with pronunciation, all the studies maintain a focus on the same corpus of data. The book is accompanied by two CD-ROMs, one containing the whole corpus and another containing the extracts used in the chapters. The CD-ROMs will be useful to any reader who wishes to listen to the actual speech samples used by the researchers. The final chapter of the book is a bibliography of over 250 references on research into the pronunciation of Singapore English. The book will be of great value to researchers, and post-graduate and undergraduate students of the phonetics of world varieties of English. CONTENTS

ENGLISH LANGUAGE MYTHS 30 BELIEFS THAT AREN’T REALLY TRUE Adam Brown 2002 ISBN: 978-0-07-120534-4

ENGLISH IN SINGAPORE: RESEARCH ON GRAMMAR

[An Asian Publication] The aim of the book is to dispel beliefs about English which are held by English teachers in Singapore, Southeast Asia and beyond. These beliefs are either wide of the mark or stated too strongly. However, they are widely held, and thus are taught in schools and in exercise books, and appear in tests and examinations. The 30 chapters (corresponding to 30 myths examined) cover the nature and status of English, grammar, morphology, pragmatics, spelling and pronunciation. The approach adopted shows that many of the beliefs held by teachers are not substantiated by what speakers of English actually do. Quotations from literature, reference books and from corpus data are given to support the analysis. The author is an authoritative figure in his field, and has many years of experience in training English language teachers in Southeast Asian countries. The discussions that focus on Southeast Asia and Singapore in particular make this book very relevant to both English language teachers and students in the region.

[An Asian Publication] English in Singapore: Research on Grammar is a collection of new articles that addresses important aspects of grammar in Singapore English. The first nine chapters are descriptive analyses of Singapore English Grammar such as missing grammatical subjects; (the absence of) past tense marking, and other aspects of Singapore English verbs; plural marking of nouns; relative clauses, passives and adverbials, and peculiarly Singaporean constructions (don’t know and particles such as la). Other chapters deal with problems in the teaching of grammar in Singapore, in three main areas: prescriptive books of common errors, connectors such as however and consequently, and teachers’ beliefs about grammar and grammar teaching. The problems of the use of Singapore English grammatical features in creative literature are also discussed. A bibliography of 230 works on Singapore English grammar is included.
