Studieprodukt i engelsk – Analysis of a coursebook system.
Opgaven er et eksempel på hvordan vi i gruppen valgte at analysere et bogsystem til engelsk i folkeskolen.
Bogsystemet hedder Pit Stop fra Alina og det var for 6. årgang
Below I comment on content and language.
- Your analysis is clearly above average – excellent. You get to the bottom of the hows and the whys. You draw on relevant subject didactic theory like Harmer, pedagogical theory like Ziehe and Illum Hansen. In general, your reflections are very well substantiated – super.
- The structure of your analysis is stringent, logical and coherent – excellent.
- A pleasure to read!
- Your language is rich and varied – excellent.
- Your punctuation is remarkably good – super. (Not that I had expected anything less)

As a teacher you must be able to construct well-organized and well-digested/carefully prepared lessons. But constructing all of your lessons from scratch is utopian, hence using course books can be great help, because then you don't have to “reinvent the wheel”. Fortunately, we are surrounded by a myriad of course books today, and you can without difficulty incorporate them in the planning of your lessons. Nevertheless, course books can easily become a pretext for doing nothing. Many teachers adapt a course book, and then they follow it slavishly. In short, they passively lean back not using their didactical professionalism as a teacher. When using course books you must have in mind that they are influenced by the publishers view on how to teach English. When being a teacher you need to be aware of what your own view on English (fagsyn) is – this is a part of our didactic mentality – why are we doing as we do? Therefore, when adapting any materials, you will have to be able to asses what the basic didactical principles are. Second of all, you must reflect on the potentials and limitations within the course book. Last but not least, you will have to make the course books fit into your mentality/view on English, so that you can answer for your educational choices... Køb adgang for at læse mere
