The golden age is an important period when children receive a wide range of knowledge. It takes place between two years of age to six.  The initial process of early literacy starts also here in which several components state meaningful supports; vocabulary, print knowledge, phonological awareness, emergent reading, and arts. Three previous studies for this article show that the integration between learning at home and at school for the supports is not yet integrated. Based on the research results that are relevant to this study, it was found that children whose parent were optimizing the chance of receiving a stimulus language well, will grow into adults who are capable in terms of language as well as having a tendency to more easily understand the readings five times greater than adults who in his childhood did not receive the same stimuli. The general objective of this study was to find the concept of activity-based meaningful language activities either through sub reading, storytelling, dialogue, as well as arts of toddlers. The specific objective of this study was to: Discover how the existing conditions in similar processes and guidelines that are applied in other countries as a comparison; Finding the design and guidelines for teacher and parent  in facilitating emergent  reading and arts;  Finding the effectiveness  of  on-going  literacy learning activities. Mix methods applied here took 40 teachers and 40 parents lived in Madiun and surroundings.

Abstract

The global competition between universities encourages an increase in the number of article publications in various international journal publishers. The demand to have article publication is unequal with the ability of academic writing skill, primarily by graduate students who are mostly novice writers. This study aims to determine the efforts of postgraduate students to publish their articles in reputable international scientific journals in the framework of the process of academic writing. This study used questionnaires and interviews as a method to obtain data from postgraduates majoring in chemistry who have Scopus indexed publications. The chemistry students have difficulties in finding a topic, organizing paragraphs, revising the article, and proofreading. This study expected to be a reference for academics who want to have Scopus-indexed publications and can be developed into teaching materials to provide practical steps for students in writing.

Abstract

This study aims to explore the practice of peer-assessment in academic writing. The current researchers find it urgent to investigate academic writing because it has rigid rules that can sharpen writers' critical thinking. The products of academic writing need to be assessed. Peer-assessment is one of alternatives used to assess students’ learning outcomes and monitor students’ progress in the class. This research is a case study. Data were collected from the first semester students, who joined an academic writing class, of the graduate program of a university  in Surakarta. The findings show that peer assessment practice can be effective as one of the assessment tools to measure students' writing in the academic writing class. DOI: doi.org/10.24071/llt.2019.220106

Abstract

Lecturers’ talk during classes stimulates active students, as a means of a successful lecture. This study investigated the levels of questioning used by lecturers. The data, collected from the participants having more than ten year professional experience, were described qualitatively. Observation and interview were used to generate the data. The findings of this study indicated the questions level based on Bloom’s revised taxonomy. Mostly used was the low and middle order thinking, less encouraging students’ critical thinking. Noted 66 questions or about 73% of the total question belong to low order. 22 questions or 25% of all were included medium order. The rest of them, the least of all, 2 questions or equally to 2% were high order. Thus, students and lecturers could use the Bloom taxonomy to administer class activities with sufficient preparation, while further research might examine how to employ high order thinking skill in various areas.
