Abstract

This is a report on an investigation of the differences between English teachers’ belief in effective teaching and their real practice in  remote-area schools in Indonesia. It is assumed that their beliefs play an important role in  influencing their decision in the classroom. It also uncovers the possible factors causing the  differences. A descriptive study using retrospective method was employed using a  questionnaire and an interview to 15  respondents participating in a Teacher Professional Education. The findings indicate that their beliefs about instructional objectives, materials, approach, classroom  management, instructional media, and assessment are not always reflected in implementations due to practical reasons or changes of belief either in a positive or negative way.

Abstract

Discourse markers (DMs) play a crucial role in writing as ‘linking words’, ‘linking phrases’, or ‘sentence connectors’ that bind ideas between sentences in a paragraph  or between paragraphs to  build  coherence  in a text.  DMs should be sufficiently but not overly used in writing. As EFL learners find it difficult to identify the types, functions, and positions of DMs to link ideas in their academic writing, this article attempts to share an instrument in the form of DMs checklist to help learners enhance their knowledge of DMs. The checklist can also be used as teacher/peer feedback form in the writing process.
