đź“ťThe Role of Explicit Instruction Book Synopsis : The challenges of learning academic language for students learning English as a second language has been the focus of much attention in education in the past decade. Many studies have looked at different instructional methods and their effects on children's literacy development. However, few have looked at how teaching specific grammatical features in the context of different academic genres affects the writing development of children learning English as a second language. This study presents an analysis of the effects of explicit instruction on children's use of genre specific features in academic writing. Grammar features of narrative and expository genres were explicitly taught in the context of their use in texts to fourth and fifth grade English Learner students. The instructional cycle included building background knowledge of the topic, explicitly teaching, highlighting and analyzing specific grammatical features in context, activities that allowed for practice and use of the language features of the genre, co-construction of a text of the genre, and independent writing. Growth of writing development was measured by collecting and analyzing preinstruction and post-instruction writing samples of both genres for length, frequency of use of a number of grammatical features, and overall organization and development. The analysis found that the overall length of texts increased significantly for both genres in the postinstruction writing samples. In addition, students used genre appropriate language, developed more complex character descriptions and plots, and incorporated more dialogue in the narrative post-instruction texts. The analysis also found that students' use of causal connectives, nominalization, and descriptive language increased in expository postinstruction writing. The organization and development of topics also showed growth in the expository post-instruction writing. These findings suggest that explicit instruction of genre specific grammatical features in context does have an effect on the writing development of children learning English as a second language. The findings of this study have several pedagogical implications for teachers. Teachers need to have an understanding of and familiarity with the features of different genres, raise awareness and explicitly teach the grammatical features of academic genres, engage students in practice and use of the language, and reflect on instruction and student writing.

Abstract: In the domain of second language reading instruction, the teaching of inferencing to young L2 students seems to be a less explored area. The present study aims to investigate the extent to which the explicit instruction approach could enhance my ESL students' inferencing skills in English reading comprehension. It explores the relevance of teaching inferencing to my students, how they drew inferences in English before intervention and how they benefited from the intervention. I used an action research approach to study the effectiveness of my teaching of inferencing to my Primary Six ESL students in Hong Kong over a one-year period. I conducted this project following a two-cycle action research pattern within a seven-step framework. I implemented the project in three phases: Pre-intervention Phase, Intervention Phase One and Intervention Phase Two. Pre-intervention Phase involved baseline studies and think-aloud studies, whilst the intervention phases involved two cycles of teaching and a post-intervention think-aloud study. I used the data from the Pre-intervention Phase for designing the teaching content of the intervention phases. Data sources of this project included the students' think-aloud protocols, the students' work, lesson recordings, entries in my reflective journal, and my colleagues' lesson observation feedback. I focused on the growth of the students' learning and the effectiveness of the explicit instruction approach when analyzing the data. Findings from the Pre-intervention Phase suggested that the participants needed improvements in L2 inferencing and they were particularly weaker in the awareness of textual cohesion and coherence in informational texts. This had the immediate pedagogical implications that for initiating a reading programme in my school context, I should consider placing inferencing at a higher position; I should adopt different text types when teaching inferencing; and I should design and adopt higher-order thinking tasks more frequently when teaching reading to my students. Findings from Intervention Phase One and Two showed the students' gradual growth in their inferencing abilities and their understanding of this reading skill. They became more confident in producing inferences while reading in English and showed an understanding of the importance of this skill to reading. Results from the post-intervention think-aloud study showed an increase in terms of the participants' production of inferencing instances, the variety of inferencing applied by them, and their sense of textual cohesion and coherence. I estimated that the use of the explicit instruction approach had benefited the participants in general despite the fact that their internalization of inferencing was not evident. This study is significant in that it examines how inferencing could be explicitly taught to young ESL students to enhance their English reading competence. It also contributes to the theoretical understanding of inferencing in the teaching and learning of reading in L2. Based on the findings of this action research project, I derived and proposed a set of pedagogical principles for ESL inferencing instructions, pointing to the importance of explicitness in lessons, clarity of lesson outline, using students' responses, text choice, and curriculum planning. I suggest that front-line L2 teachers make inferencing and other reading ski
