The Research of Junior High School Students’ Learning Experience in English Ability Grouping
The purpose of this study is to understand the views and the learning experiences of junior high school students in English ability grouping, and to explore the factors that may affect the learning experiences of the junior high school students. This study used two classes in the eighth grade of a public school in Taipei City as a research object. Observation, interviews and document analysis were used to collect the information. The interviewees were students, and the interviews were used to understand the students' views on the English ability grouping. The document analysis included observation records, interview record sheets, lecture notes, worksheets and assessments. According to the research findings, the conclusions of this study are summarized as follows： 1. Students think that English ability grouping is the way to differentiate good and bad students. It’s helpful and is able to enhance their abilities and it’s simple and there is no pressure while learning in the English ability grouping. 2. Students believe that there is no major change in the content of the English ability grouping. Although students do not like the worksheets, they are more interesting than the textbook and helpful for the exam. 3. Students think that the teacher in English ability grouping is more humorous than the general English class and will use the student's language. The teaching method is mainly based on the grammar translation, and students prefer to have more activities during the class. 4. Students in the English ability grouping are used to the written test, and they are very concerned about the scores. 5. Students like to choose their own seat of the classroom and they think that peers will affect their learning. 6. Factors such as "students’ personal traits", "teachers’ teaching", "family background", "school environment" may affect the learning experience of students' English ability grouping. Finally, based on the research results, further suggestions are made for the education field and subsequent research.
