The Effect of Short Story Reading through Constructivist Activities on the Language Development of Primary School Students


Author(s): Yrd. Do├ž. Dr. R?dvan TUN├çEL

Two basic educational orientations have become popular: teacher-centered “instructionism”, and student-centered “constructivism”. Within the framework of constructivist view, learners are encouraged to create and build knowledge. This research aims at providing some possibilities towards improving learners’ first language development through presenting some student-centered activities. The findings reveal that short story reading through some student oriented activities improved the amount of adjective usage but not sentence production.
