  • Literacy 'by hook or by crook': differentiated access to literacy in secondary English Classrooms.

    Rozas Gomez, Claudia (2011)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    The Ministry of Education has delivered a clear mandate in the last decade for schools to focus on literacy and the literacy development of their students (for example Literacy leadership in schools Y 9–13 (MoE, 2002) and Effective literacy strategies in years 9 to 13 (MoE, 2004). This article is a discussion of some initial data from a work in progress that seeks to consider how different forms of literacy may be targeted at different groups of students in English departments in secondary schools. It examines the nature and content of these programmes in relation to The New Zealand curriculum (MoE, 2007) aims, which stresses the importance of creative and critical capabilities. Using both theoretical and qualitative analysis, this article examines the ‘effects’ of current policy (curriculum and assessment) structures. It seeks to explore how these structures may produce particular teaching and learning practices. Members of English departments in the wider Auckland area were invited to participate in the study and take part in interviews about their targeted programmes. The qualitative data analysis pays attention to how discourses of equity and opportunity are played out in the decisions that English teachers make about what types of literacy to ‘give’ to students.

  • Corticospinal facilitation during motor imagery

    Stinear, CM (2010)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    This chapter summarises the evidence for primary motor cortex engagement during motor imagery. The corticospinal system is facilitated in a muscle- and temporally-specific way during explicit motor imagery, particularly when a kinaesthetic imagery strategy is used. This chapter draws on my expertise in using transcranial magnetic stimulation to evaluate corticomotor and intracortical mechanisms during motor imagery.

  • Nietzsche and Cosmology

    Small, Robin (2006)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    Nietzsche's thought seldom fits readily into familiar categories, and his relation to cosmology is a case in point. There are several problems in seeing him as engaging with this branch of philosophy. If cosmology takes the world as a whole as its object, it is open to the question raised by Kant: whether the world can be comprehended-or evaluated, Nietzsche would add-by our minds. ...

  • From policy to practice: empowering minority language speakers in New Zealand

    van Hees, Jannie (2009)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    AThis book explores how researchers in different parts of the world deal with cultural diversity in teacher education programmes. In the nine countries presented in this volume (USA, Scotland, Japan, Finland, Colombia, France, New Zealand, Canada, and Mexico) the discussion centres on how individual teachers can be empowered to become difference-making professionals. This tri-lingual publication sets out to challenge current language ideologies and provide examples of enhancing possibilities. My chapter offered an opportunity to present a lens on New Zealand’s cultural and linguistic landscape, and describe evidence-based pedagogical current practices that in a global sense are leading edge. It combined an historical backdrop with school examples derived from my research-based work in schools. Contributors were by invitation only, most of who were co-presenters at a symposium at the AILA Congress in Essen in 2009. Subsequently, editors have invited me to propose further research and publishing collaborations.

  • “Bon appétit, Lion City”: The use of French in naming restaurants in Singapore

    Serwe, SK; Ong, Kenneth; Ghesquiere, JF (2013-07-01)

    Book item
    The University of Auckland Library

    In multilingual Singapore, French can frequently be found in the names of local food retailers and restaurants. This study attempts to investigate the form and function of French in these business names. By considering which meanings French expresses in the local corporate context, the reasons behind the use of French will be discussed. At the heart of the analysis, is a corpus of 47 names found on shop signs in different locations of Singapore. Results suggest a link between form, the type of food retail business, and the food served. Functionally, French expresses cultural and social meanings, while stressing individual and collective identities. We present evidence for the use of French as an emergent commercial register peculiar to Singapore.
