Abstract: 本研究以台灣中部地區一所高級職業學校的27名三年級學生為對象,旨在探討利用課外時間應用短篇故事引導學生英語句型寫作的效果。藉由學習日記、教學觀察日記、以及訪談等質化研究方法收集資料,資料分析則以深入了解研究對象對於短篇故事教學的感受為目的,並於研究期間經由不斷反思與調整,以尋求更為實用可行的教學方法。本研究結果發現:一、短篇故事教學能更強化研究對象的句型寫作能力與學習動機;二、短篇故事教學的經驗對於研究者的課程設計能力以及教學技巧具有相當大的助益;三、經由不斷地反思與調整,研究者逐步發現了更為實用可行的教學方法;四、對於研究對象的句型寫作能力發展具有真正影響力的是他們自身的學習態度,而不是程度高低。根據上述幾點發現,研究者於文末總結出幾項研究重點與局限性,並對未來相關研究提出建議。
Targeting 27 senior three students at a vocational high school in central Taiwan, this action research project used extracurricular activities to explore the effects of applying short stories on the development of learners’ sentence writing competence. By means of qualitative techniques, including learning logs, teaching logs and interviews, results were analyzed and interpreted with an attempt to have a profound understanding of the participants’ responses to short story teaching and to derive a more feasible approach through continuous reflections as well as adjustments. The findings concluded from the results included: 1) short story teaching could better enhance both the development of the participants’ sentence writing and their motivation; 2) the experience of short story teaching was beneficial for the teacher researcher’s curriculum design and teaching techniques; 3) a more feasible approach had been built through continuous reflections and adjustments; 4) it was not a learner’s proficiency level but his learning attitude that affected the development of his sentence writing during the teaching stages. Based on these findings, pedagogical implications and limitations of this project are proposed; in addition, recommendations for future studies are provided at the end of this thesis.
