Creative Education (CE) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2016.73043
Abstract: Writing skill is a conspicuous language-related skill but many regard it as the most difficult skill to be practiced due to the involvement of complex and complicated thought processes. The success or failure of a student to write is often associated with a number of factors. This study has been conducted to evaluate the level of writing skill among students of Islamic Secondary Schools, to measure the difference of writing skills between SMKA and SMAN, to identify the most dominant factor that determine the mastery of writing, and to evaluate such factors’ interaction with student achievement. 184 form-three students were chosen to participate for the purpose of this study. This study used writing efficiency level test and Attitude Questionnaire instruments that contained 25 perception items to represent the five factors studied. Application of mean scale and t-test showed that there was no significant difference in the efficiency of writing between students from both types of school. Other than that, there was no link found between the studied factors except for the teacher factor. This study found that teacher factor is the most dominant one in determining the level of students’ efficiency in writing Arabic.
Alpha (Osorno) , 2008, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-22012008000200002
Abstract: from a perspective located at a considerable distance from an admission without any problematics of the cultural program of the dominican humanist pedro henríquez ure?a, we propose a critical reading of the theory of miscegenation as a source of harmony and sociocultural integration of hispanic-america that threads a great amount of the author′s texts. our working hypothesis tries to question the idea of miscegenation, in which the autochthonous and spanish elements interfere, and functions at the mercy of some strategic selections; for example, the clipping of an image of spanish america at the expense of the caribbean area and, consequently, of other existing ethnic reserves. on the other hand, we propose that the resource of the merger or miscegenation does not prove, at last, a sly way of eluding the conflict and cultural instability of the continent. finally, we wish to consider the reasons for which he sticks fast and firmly to humanism as a suitable doctrine to set the course for an argumentation of harmony for these very different elements, without neglecting any positivists notes which might last in the allusions to race.
Da idéia ao texto: uma digress?o "filopoetosófica"
Andrade, Antonio;
Alea : Estudos Neolatinos , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S1517-106X2006000100007
Abstract: this work comes from the relation between poetry and philosophy. it tries to propose a hybrid read of the text "hegel poeta", in which haroldo de campos analyzes hegel's literary style of writing and changes some extracts of his phenomenology of spirit into poems. this perspective - that understands the philosophic text, like literature, as the place of the writing - can be related to a baroque conception: a style, in opposition to classicism, far from some objectivity. this work approximates the poetry of campos to neobaroque poets. it also shows some possibilities of contemporary discussion about the limits between poetry and essay.
Anarquia do ensaio (entre experiência e desastre)
Eyben, Piero;
Alea : Estudos Neolatinos , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1517-106X2011000200007
Abstract: this paper discusses the problematic imposed by the relationship between writing and experience in the constitution of the essay form. from a semantic analysis of the remarks present in montaigne's essais, issues like the relationship between sense and absence, clarity of argument and mobility of a sensory language, characteristics of an ethics of writing, are brought up.
A meditatio mortis montaigniana
Orione, Eduino José;
Kriterion: Revista de Filosofia , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-512X2012000200009
Abstract: this paper investigates the essay "que philosopher c'est apprendre a mourir", by michel de montaigne. this text is a good example of how the philosopher rejects the metaphysical tradition in which the problem of death has always been thought. we expose that the originality of this essay lies in the fact that montaigne advises us to follow nature, which, in his thought, is indistinguishable from custom.
Diamela Eltit: El ensayo como estrategia narrativa
Atenea (Concepción) , 2004, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-04622004049000008
Abstract: the central hypothesis of this critical text is that eltit?s novels are permeated by a strategy: that of the essay, as understood in the etymological sense of the word, as an "attempt" or "experiment". nothing is definitive in these novels, neither the subject nor the discourse: the subject is always a figure in movement, in transit and the discourse constructs and reconstructs itself right before the reader?s eyes. without a doubt this is a "post-vanguard" strategy or, also, "post-modern", whose meaning the critical text tries to situate in the context of the contemporary chilean novel. even when the experimental strategy runs through all of eltit?s narrative order, the quotes privilege the novel por la patria.
Activist Essayism
Paul Woolridge
Opticon1826 , 2007, DOI: 10.5334/opt.030702
Abstract: Any study of the essay is bound to run into the problem of classification, even more modest inquiries like this one which restrict the genre’s range to twentieth-century Anglo-American literary life. To speak of ‘the essay’, in fact, is already to invoke it as a distinct form of writing, a genre to itself, a rubric under which each individual instance engenders some larger, definitive set of shared criteria. We speak in similar presupposing terms about the novel, the lyric poem, the short story and the epic (among the many others) as literary objects, written forms defined and characterised by larger generic categories. The essay, to be sure, has many such distinguishable features which mark it off as at least a minor literary genre recognisable apart from the rest. Spontaneous, brief, sceptical, ambulatory, tentative, exploratory, subjective, experiential, conversational, fragmentary, elastic, unmethodical and free are some of the more common epithets imputed to its form. As Graham Good observes, ‘many good insights into the potentials of the essay form can be gained from the titles of collections’, especially when drawn from critical and self-reflexive characterisations focused on the essay form itself.1

Abstract: To improve teaching quality, teachers need a tool to help them reflect and evaluate their teaching decisions and actions. Teachers can always rely on schools to do such a job, but they can also use a personal and professional teaching diary as a means to do a self-analysis and evaluation. This article reports the practice of my using the teaching diary as a writing teacher as a means to help me look beyond and reflect on my teaching routines
Short Answer Questions or Modified Essay questions – More Than a Technical Issue  [PDF]
Sven Wallerstedt, Gudrun Erickson, Susanna M. Wallerstedt
International Journal of Clinical Medicine (IJCM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ijcm.2012.31005
Abstract: Purpose, The present article was built on the assumption that the form of an examination may influence learning, and may also reflect different kinds of knowledge. The aim of the study was to evaluate whether the results of an examination differ when short answer questions (SAQ) or modified essay questions (MEQ) are used. Method, Forty-nine students in the internal medicine course in Gothenburg, Sweden, performed a written examination in 2003, which included both SAQ and MEQ. Result, The correlation between the results of SAQ and MEQ was 0.59 (P < 0.001). The percentage correctly answered questions in the two types did not differ significantly. Some students had poor results in either SAQ or MEQ. Conclusion, The general outcome of the study indicates that results of SAQ and MEQ demonstrate a significant correlation. However, they may also reflect differences in mastery of the knowledge domain, which should be considered in relation to aspects of validity
