Dear Participant, APIBA is pleased to welcome you to our 2012 Annual Seminar, whose primary aim is to honour the memory of Ana María Armendáriz, an educator who left an indelible mark in many of us. We will be forever indebted to her for the invaluable contributions she made to our academic life. It is our intention to perpetuate the spirit that drove her forward and to celebrate her passionate approach to education. A significant number of prestigious speakers have enthusiastically responded to our call for papers and will be presenting their work on the areas of expertise Ana María explored tirelessly: Grammar, Linguistics, Methodology and Curriculum Design. Rooted in Ana’s legacy, this Seminar will offer us all a unique opportunity not only to get acquainted with the latest findings and innovations on the four above-mentioned areas but also to consolidate our vocation and renew our professional commitment. It is the most sincere hope of APIBA’s Executive Committee that you find this event of relevance to your daily practice and enjoy our tribute to our dearest Ana. Best wishes, Gabriela Madera Analía Kandel APIBA Executive Committee Member APIBA President

ABSTRACTS & BIODATAS Paper 01. Teachers as Designers What are the assumptions about education in the 21st century? What is digital literacy? What is the role of teachers in a studentcentred, technology-enabled context? This paper discusses these issues and illustrates opportunities offered by digital media for teachers to become designers, both through the selection of materials available online free of charge and through the design of tasks that encourage active learning and the development of digital literacy.

Paper 02. La Historia de Abraham - Relato y reflexión sobre un proyecto de aula en inglés basado en valores ¿Cuanto tiempo de nuestra clase de inglés dedicamos al año al trabajo en valores? La presente experiencia describe cómo planificar un año lectivo centrando el trabajo en valores en la clase de inglés. Aprender gramática y vocabulario no impide una profunda reflexión y acción por parte de los alumnos de valores positivos que enriquezcan su desarrollo personal y el de todo su entorno. Los invito a que reflexionemos juntos acerca de la importancia de fomentar valores positivos en el aula.

Paper 03. Pop Songs as Genre: Recurrent Organizational Patterns in Pop Lyrics Pop songs are loaded with textual traits that may invite us to read them as components of colonies. It is their clustering into colonies what may partly explain their recurrent matching organisational patterns, mostly signalled by parallelism and repetition. Yet, recurrent sequence relations can also be traced among different text segments in the lyrics of a small sample of songs under analysis, which is signalled either overtly or by projection into dialogue.

Paper 04. ¿La patria es la lengua?: lengua, lengua extranjera e identidad La frase “la patria es la lengua” presenta aristas ricas para la reflexión sobre el vínculo entre lengua e identidad, que se multiplican al pensar en la dimensión identitaria del aprendizaje/enseñanza de lenguas extranjeras, tanto a nivel personal como cultural. ¿En qué medida es cierta la afirmación? ¿Y qué registro tienen la metodología y la formación docente en lenguas extranjeras de esta dimensión?

Paper 05. Lectocomprensión en inglés: dificultades al interpretar verbos que requieren, en español, una construcción equivalente con “se” Este trabajo detallará las principales dificultades experimentadas por un grupo de alumnos de Inglés Lectocomprensión de la Universidad Nacional de General Sarmiento al trasladar sintagmas verbales del inglés al español cuando estos requieren una construcción equivalente con “se”. Luego de una síntesis del marco teórico relacionado con el fenómeno y del análisis de su incidencia en los textos analizados por los alumnos, se presentará una propuesta de intervención didáctica tendiente a la superación del problema. Paper 06. Using M-Learning to Teach English Have you ever thought about using mobile devices in your classroom, but didn’t know how or where to get started? Join this presentation and be ready to explore a variety of free educational apps, learn how to use QR codes and create digital stories with handheld devices. You will discover how easy it is to integrate m-learning in your daily teaching scenario. Paper 07. Topic-based Projects, Multimedia and Motivation in EFL classes In this session, the presenter will analyse what is understood by the term multimedia and how it can be applied in topic-based projects to engage learners; develop their sense of self-efficacy; raise their selfesteem; and foster learner autonomy. She will then share an excerpt from a real topic-based project designed for upper-elementary learners in which multimedia resources were used by the teacher and the learners to communicate ideas meaningfully and purposefully.

ABSTRACTS & BIODATAS Paper 08. Expressing Result Resultativity has not always been thoroughly explored from the syntactic and morphological point of view. However, this notion may present many difficulties to our Spanish-speaking students. This is not surprising if we take into account that in Spanish we may use verbs which are devoid of meaning and most often than not they have no one-to-one correspondence with English verbs: quedarse (tranquilo), ponerse (nervioso), resultar (electo), salir (fotografiado), acabar (preso), etc. In this communication we are going to use some tools of Comparative Syntax to unravel the differences between English and Spanish with respect to the expression of Resultativity. Paper 09. The Process of Acquisition of the Uses of the Genitive Case in Pre-Teens Foreign Language Learners As teachers of English we can observe how complicated the acquisition of some English grammar rules may be for our students. This exposition focuses on the process of acquisition of the uses of the genitive case in pre-teen foreign language learners. In other words, it focuses on the different stages learners go through when acquiring the different uses of the genitive Case (‘s, and of-insertion). Analyzing our students‘ common mistakes will let us know how to help them.

Paper 10. Content Based Learning: An EOP Radiocommunications Course for Pilots This presentation is an account of an EOP Radiocommunications course designed and delivered for civil and commercial pilots as preparation for the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) Exam. They contributed materials from USA (CDs, DVDs, flight simulators) which together with online video reproduction and mp3 recordings constituted invaluable “authentic material” for this 40-hour course. This way TAVI (Text as Vehicle for Information) was transformed into TALO (Text as Linguistic Object).

Paper 11. Jornada de Intercambio de Experiencias Pedagógicas El proyecto está basado en la socialización de experiencias áulicas desde el área de idioma extranjero involucrando la interdisciplinariedad. Durante la jornada los docentes exponen los proyectos valiéndose de un soporte que permite mostrar el registro de los procesos llevados adelante, donde se pueden apreciar el trabajo de los alumnos y los logros lingüísticos alcanzados. A partir de este encuentro surgen experiencias interdistritales donde el trabajo colaborativo se hace presente. Se da una instancia de valiosa retroalimentación que enriquece la tarea cotidiana. Authors: Gisela Bó, Rosana Luvera, Alfredo Daniel Núñez and Gabriela Pattacini

Paper 12. Communicative Approach into Practice: “The Great Animals Experience” This presentation will report a direct experience that took place in a state school of Villa Soldati during the first semester of 2011 in which two schools met to play games, listen to a story and produce collaborative work based on storybooks for native-speaking children. We will discuss the implications of the direct experience in the curricular design as a way to enhance and foster students’ communication skills. Paper 13. Análisis de Maus de Art Spiegelman, historieta de guerra de final abierto Esta tesis se propone analizar desde una perspectiva semiótica la historieta Maus de Art Spiegelman, que es la historia de Vadlek Spiegelman (padre de Art Spiegelman, sobreviviente del Holocausto judío) antes, durante y después de la Alemania nazi. Los personajes son seres antropomórficos, con cabeza de animal y cuerpo humano: los judíos son ratones, los alemanes son gatos, los estadounidenses están representados como perros y los polacos, como cerdos. La elección de animales híbridos puede tener múltiples significados, por ejemplo, la ausencia o negación de todo tipo de sentimentalismo y de la clásica confrontación víctima-victimario. El producto terminado debe ser leído como una posible interpretación de “Maus” que hará reflexionar al lector sobre cómo un tema tan complejo como el del Holocausto judío puede ser representado en viñetas de una manera seria y original, muy a pesar de que el cómic presupone la existencia de un relato ficticio.

Paper 14. The English Tendency to Early Stress in Borrowings

Cinthia Patricia Smith (APIBA Member)

This paper deals with English stress patterns in French and Spanish root noun and adjective borrowings. In the introduction, the terms stress and borrowing are defined, followed by a comparative description of stress in different languages. Subsequently, there is an account of English stress and its origins and the consistent early stress tendency in the history of the English Language. Two types of data are presented, which succeed in proving the hypothesis of this paper.

Paper 15. Pragmatism in Methodology: accounting for ICT integration “Whatever we do in the classroom,” Ana once told my class during a lesson on Methodology, “must be planned for a good reason”. Recently, much has been said and done to promote ICT integration into our lessons. Before we jump on the bandwagon, it is our professional responsibility, as reflective practitioners, to ponder how these tools can actually contribute to fostering the acquisition of EFL for communication. Join me to share experiences and tips!

Paper 16. A Binary-Branching Analysis of Four-Argument Verbs: Case Study of TO BET Four-place predicates represent a challenge for students of Linguistics at teacher education programmes, who lack an appropriate model for their analysis. The present study deals with the verb “to bet”, adopting for its syntactic analysis the framework provided by Radford (2004, 2009). To integrate the four arguments into a single binary derivation, it is postulated that there is an additional light verb below vP (shell), which is responsible for licensing Dative Case to the Goal.

Paper 17. Teacher Development: The Socialization of Teaching Practices As a Self-Improvement Tool – Our Personal Experience Drawing on our experience in relation to the challenges connected with the production of academic pieces and the presentation of such work at teacher conferences, this paper aims at describing the process we went through to evolve from a form of teacher development deeply rooted in the development of knowledge base connected with the subject taught into a form that emphasizes an all-embracing approach to professional practices that transcend the classroom walls.

Paper 18. Las representaciones Socio-Lingüísticas en la escuela primaria. Un estudio de caso. El presente trabajo se centra en el estudio de las percepciones lingüísticas de alumnos de 4to y 5to grado de la Escuela Primaria.

A su vez, se indaga sobre la relación que puede existir entre estas percepciones con el desarrollo de la sensibilidad intercultural.

Paper 19. Enseñar Inglés en la Escuela Secundaria Hoy Esta presentación describe y analiza el proceso de construcción e implementación de una Unidad Didáctica por parte de un grupo de practicantes de 4to año del ISFD Nº 88, P. Freire, La Matanza. Para el proyecto, se utilizaron temas de la realidad escolar juvenil actual con un doble objetivo: desarrollar la competencia comunicativa de los alumnos y despertar la conciencia sobre ciertos valores esenciales que hacen al ser humano.

Workshop 04. Third Generation Tests

Cristina Magno es Profesora de inglés (INSP

Even if testing of EFL has been subject to change according to different teaching approaches, teachers constantly face the difficult task of checking their learners’ progress. At present, more integrative tests such as Third Generation Tests focus on contextualized communicative abilities whereby learners do not produce readymade expected answers. Testing is no longer a way to confirm linguistic knowledge but a way to confirm learners’ ability to create and understand meaning in context.

María Isabel Hoffmann es Profesora de in-

Workshop 05. Storytelling in the EFL Classroom In this workshop, we will experience the art of Storytelling in an EFL situation and its impact on language learning. We will explore Jerome Bruner’s Narrative Thinking Mode and its connection to the techniques applied when telling a story in an EFL classroom. We will work with concrete tools such as the use of body posture, facial expression, voice, rhythm and pace, use of silence, spatial orientation and choice of words as a means to transfer imagery.

Workshop 06. “What Method? No Method” Revisited Elements of learning, teaching, and teacher education in the field of teaching foreign languages are indeed interconnected in ways that may not be readily apparent. Traditional language teaching methods may be classified into three broad categories: Languagecentered, learner-centered, and learning-centered but the purpose of this workshop is to deconstruct the concept of method, analyse the current antimethod sentiments and describe the emerging postmethod era. As Ana used to say in the 90s “What method? No method”.

PP01. APIBA Young Learners SIG Poster We would like to share with the audience the different ways in which we have empowered and enriched our daily practice by taking an active part and getting involved in the APIBA Young Learners SIG: the different topics we have dealt with during the year, the tools and materials we have used to foster reflection, the special guests we have had and our plans for next meetings. We believe it would be a great opportunity to share everything we have learnt from each other and invite teachers and students to join us! PP02. APIBA Literature SIG Poster This poster shows what we have done so far. As you can see we started discussing Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children (our summer reading) to close the work we did last year. Then we chose to delve into detective fiction and for that purpose we started reading Edgar Allan Poe’s stories. PP03. APIBA e-TL (e-Teaching and Learning) SIG Poster APIBA e-TL SIG (the Special Interest Group on Learning Technologies) is a forum where members share their ICT Skills and their experience using learning technologies in the class in order to enhance our teaching practice and professional development. In this presentation, SIG members will share information on the goals of our SIG, the topics we have been discussing and how our virtual meetings are held. Join us in this space of collaborative learning! PP04. APIBA Professional Issues SIG Poster SIG Professional Issues is a space for research and reflection. We tackle matters that are not often discussed in professional contexts: teachers’ rights, sick-leaves, voice problems, formal and informal employment, access to tenures, etc. As we welcome the participation of experts in areas beyond the pedagogical ones, our SIG is carried out in Spanish. PP05. APIBA Methodology SIG Poster Exploring methods and approaches in language teaching. We will be sharing our findings, views and reflections on CLIL. Can content and language be included in different local teaching contexts in various degrees? PP06. APIBA Language and Phonology SIG Poster This poster shows three of our most relevant segments: the How-Do-You-Say? Spot, where we focus on curiosities of the language and on the English equivalents for Spanish words and expressions not usually found in dictionaries; the Phonology Segment, where we discuss different aspects of phonology and how to help students improve pronunciation; and the Cultural Awareness Segment, in which we compare and contrast the English and the Argentinian cultures. 30 | APIBA ANNUAL SEMINAR 2012 | In Memoriam of Prof. Ana María Armendáriz

ABSTRACTS & BIODATAS

PP07. ART in ESL How I implemented a project of art in my classroom to enhance motivation and to introduce different ways of using the language in creative activities. I will talk about the different steps I followed in the project with my students and how I will continue. PP08. Re-thinking Modeling, Repetition, Imitation . . . : Insights from Theory and Practice The aim of this poster is to promote reflection on the understanding of some terms typically used in our ELT practice so as to discover important distinctions in terms of their theoretical assumptions and practical implications. We will concentrate on different forms of teacher intervention that support the language development of our students. Specifically, we will deal with different conceptualizations of modelling that can have profoundly different outcomes.
