Summary
  • "This study is concerned with the problem of low English literacy achievements in the atoll schools of the Maldives. A qualitative case study research design was employed to investigate the role of oral English language in assisting English literacy learning in one atoll school in the Maldives. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with four English language teachers and the cirriculum documents consisting of two weeks of daily lesson plans, one term schemes of work and the syllabi of grades one to ten, were examined. The participants were interviewed regarding their views and knowledge about the role of oral English language in assisting English literacy learning and the emphasis given by them to developing oral English language compared to other English literacy skills. The documents were examined to discover the emphasis given to developing oral English language competency, the role of oral English language in developing other literacy English literacy skills and the amount of time students engaged in oral based activities in the English language classes.
  • Results indicated that the role of oral English language in the sample school was limited primarily to basic classroom communication, despite the teachers' views and knowledge that students' oral English competency contributed to effective learning of reading and writing skills. The results also indicated that more emphasis on developing oral English language could be given in the sample school. The literacy outcomes outlined in the syllabi were to equally develop the literacy skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing. However, these aims did not appear to be translated into classroom teaching objectives in the daily lesson plans and schemes of work. Further research in this area is recommended, before these findings can be generalised towards other atoll schools and to fully investigate the problem of low English language literacy level in the atoll schools of the Maldives." -- Abstract.
