An Integrated Study on Taiwan’s Elementary and Secondary School English Curricula
The present proposal, in five different theoretical and pedagogical perspectives, is intended to examine the effectiveness of Taiwan’s Nine-year English Curriculum Guidelines implemented in 2001 and to offer practical suggestions on its improvements. With the aim to illuminate the impact and effectiveness of the curricula, the first study adopts the methods of systematic review to analyze the existing literature on elementary and secondary school English education. The second project is a cross-national study that aims to examine the curriculum guidelines for English education at the elementary and secondary school levels in Taiwan as well as in East Asian countries such as Mainland China, Japan, Korea, and Hong Kong. At the end of this comparative study, suggestions will be made regarding the curriculum development for English education in Taiwan. The third study aims to investigate and examine the quantity, the selection criteria, as well as the extent of repetition of vocabulary words in elementary and secondary school textbooks in Taiwan and other Asian countries such as Mainland China, Japan, Korea and Hong Kong. Practical suggestions will be offered to elementary and secondary school teachers, textbook writers and the authorities in Taiwan. The fourth study explores the profiles of current Enlgish teachers at elementary and secondary schools and proposes professional standards for Enlgish teachers. The purpose of the fifth study is to survey English teachers’ use and perceptions of instructional technology both in elementary schools and secondary schools island-wide in order to examine its effectiveness.
