Teaching Methods & learners’ Interest

来源:  作者:未知 [字体: ]

Abstract: The present study presents a detailed report of a project implemented to solve the problem that most of my students aren’t interested in English and they don’t like studying English. It is hypothesized that learners’ interest in studying English will be greatly increased by some better teaching methods in this respect. This hypothesis is verified by a three-week classroom teaching of varied techniques.
Among the methods of scientific investigation used are analytic method, cause analytic questionnaire survey, and brainstorming.

Key phrase:English; interest; teaching methods

1. Introduction
I have been teaching the students who are in thEir second year of a junior middle school. In my teaching, I’ve found there are some problems. Now, I’ll finish my study in ChengDu  University. I hope I can solve the problems that have troubled me for some time through the action research so that I can apply my knowledge and theory into practice, which I learned from ChengDu  University. 

2. Summary of the Preliminary Research
This part of my study was conducted during June 6th , 2007~8th, 2007
2.1 Problem
The problem I have in my teaching is that most of my students don’t study English so that they get very bad grades.
2.2 Problem analysis
In my teaching, the problem identified was really a serious problem. My preliminary research confirmed that the main reason is that students aren’t interested in studying English.
2.2.1 Analytic method
Through careful analysis, I was led to a series of questions: For instance, I found lots of students think to study English is useless, it is too difficult to study English and English class is so boring. The problems were actually caused by me, not by my students. Probably the teaching work that I design was poorly interesting.
2.2.2 Cause analysis
In this situation, I asked myself a series of questions and tried to provide some answer to them.
Why did most of students not feel interested in studying English? In order to know more about this issue, I designed a cause exploration procedure like this.
      Questions                                       Answers
△Is it because they feel difficult to study English?            Possible yes
△Is it because to study English is useless?                    Maybe
△Is it because the English classes are poorly designed?         Maybe
2.2.3 Questionnaire survey
I made a pilot investigation in this respect to know more about the situation. For this purpose, I designed a research procedure like the follows.
I give my questionnaire to all students and ask them to finish it. All of them, fifty-six students, returned thEIr questionnaires which were left anonymous.
When all these data came in, I made some statistical evaluation. The result showed that over 90% of the students thought it was useful to study English. About 79% of them thought it was difficult to study English. Most of students don’t like English and aren’t interested in English. They thought they like varied, relaxed, pleased English class instead of boring English.
2.2.4 Brainstorming activation
When I was engaged in the problem analysis, I consulted my thesis supervisor Mr. Li, Miss Pu and Miss Peng and often talked to my classmates about all the problems I met. They gave me a lot of advice and help so that I pondered the problem more deeply and carefully.
After a lengthy problem analysis, I determined to launch a project to overcome this problem.
2.3 Project objective
My research objective is to increase my students’ interest in studying English.
2.4 Project hypothesis
It is hypothesized that learners’ interest in studying is increased by better organization and teaching methods.
2.5 Possible solutions
With these reasons in mind, I have correspondingly provided some possible solutions which are as follows.
2.5.1 Get well ready for teaching in the classroom before class.
2.5.2 Try to create a relaxed, pleased Environment.
2.5.3 Make interesting class with different teaching methods instead of simple and boring class.
2.5.4 Give students some chance to practice themselves.
2.5.5 Tell them some ways to study English, let them feel successful.
