Abstract:

Academic and Research Literacy Practices of Final Year Teacher Trainees in
Luanda, Angola presents a detailed study of students and lecturers at higher
teacher training institutions where English is taught as a medium of
instruction and specialisation. As such, the book will help raise the
awareness of educators, teachers and supervisors of the need to be more
supportive to students, and will highlight the importance of increased
responsibility on the part of the students regarding their studies, especially
during the process of writing their research reports.

Practical experience has shown that, in most classrooms, students are
typically asked to produce texts for one single audience, namely the teacher
or the lecturer, who already knows what constitutes an acceptable response.
However, in many classrooms, teachers and lecturers tend to believe that
literacy can be defined as the ability to encode and decode texts, the ability
to decipher the ‘main idea’ of a reading passage or to write a text that obeys
the general conventions of language usage such as syntax, organisation, and
idea development.

The central argument of this book, however, is that, at higher levels of the
educational system in Angola, academic and research literacy practices are, at
best, questionable and, at worst, harmful. An extensive re-evaluation of
assumptions regarding student capability and what it means to be a literate in
the twenty-first-century ‘information society’ is of critical importance. Such
a re-examination allows for extensive reflection on current practices and a
powerful critique of ‘traditional’ academic and research literacy methods, and
suggests ways in which practices of quality teaching and learning may be
implemented.
