Example text

Error analysis went out of fashion fairly quickly, because it turned out that there were nearly always a number of different ways of repairing a linguistic error. This made it unpopular with teachers; but it is precisely this feature that makes it interesting to linguists, and it is a useful exercise to perform with students of linguistics since it helps them to become conscious of the various dimensions along which languages are organized. A translation shift is not the same as an error. Indeed there will almost always be shift on some dimension or other, because there is seldom total equivalence between choices in two languages; the translator shifts here to gain equivalence there, according to the value inhering in equivalence of different kinds in the nature of the task in hand.

The notes finished with a brief step-by-step procedural section on how to go about writing the interpretation. These notes were used by students as they drafted their work. Further, the language coaches also referred students to specific sections of these notes during the revision/redrafting phases. The first set of notes were supplemented by activities that the team felt were needed to help students work on specific problems. For example, it became evident in Linguistics that while students were able to produce texts that roughly followed the generic structure of the model interpretation, the texts were often lacking at the phase, paragraph and sentence levels, particularly in terms of thematic development.

Additionally, frontloading is typically mediated by a teacher in classroom interaction, whereas in the SLATE project, thus far, students must engage with the frontloading materials independently online. As can be seen from these coach’s comments, students’ engagement with the models ended up being mediated to some degree by the coaches, who pointed them to the models, and to specific points in the model that were applicable. As the coach points out in the second part of comment (1) and in comment (2), the points in the student’s text are not well organized.
