This book presents new research on sight translation using cutting-edge eye-tracking technology. It covers various aspects of sight translation processes of both novice and professional interpreters, such as their textual processing behaviors, problem-solving patterns and reading-speech coordination. By focusing on the features of their gaze behaviors, the book describes the interpreters' processing behaviors and categorizes them into different processing styles. As one of the first books on sight translation employing an eye-tracking technique as the research method, it offers a valuable reference guide for future eye-tracking-based translation and interpreting research.

Although educational theories are presented in a variety of textbooks and in some discipline specific handbooks and encyclopedias, no publication exists which serves as a comprehensive, consolidated collection of the most influential and most frequently quoted and consulted theories. There is a need to put such theories into a single, easily accessible volume. A unique feature of the Handbook is the way in which it conveys the theories. The organization of the chapters within each section makes the volume an easy·to-use and tu1derstandable reference tool as researchers and practitioners seek theories to guide their research and practice and as they develop theoretical frameworks. In addition to the traditional theories presented, the Handbook includes emerging theories for the 21st Century as well as presenting practical examples of the use of these theories in research from dissertations and published articles. An appendix which indicates which theories have instruments associated with them and where those instruments can be found is also included. The Handbook consists of 12 sections. Section I provides the jntroduction with a focus on what constitutes good theory as well as how theory guides research and practice. The remaining sections address Philosophical Educational Constructs, Leaming Theory, Instructional Theory, Curriculum theory, Literacy and Language Acquisition Theory, Counseling Theory, Moral Development Theory, Classroom Management Theory, Assessment Theory, Organizational Theory, and Leadership/Management Theory. Each section consists of an overview written by the section editor of the general theoretical concepts to be addressed by the chapter authors. Each chapter within the section will include (a) a description of the theory with goals, assumptions, and aspects particular to the theory, (b) the original development of and interactions of the theory, (c) validation of the theory, (d) generalizability of the theory across cultures, ethnicities, and genders, (e) the use and application of the theory, (f) critiques of the theory, (g) any instruments associated with the theory, and (h) two to five particular studies exemplifying particular theories as individuals have used them in theoretical framework of dissertations or published articles and be written by the original theorist or prominent contributors to the theory. The Handbook is intended for graduate students enrolled in research courses or completing theses and dissertations. Additionally, professors of all educational disciplines in the social scierices would be an interested audience. There is also potential use of the text as administrators, counselors, and teachers in schools use theory to guide practice. As more inquiry is being promoted among school leaders, this book has more meaning for practitioners.

Through cohesive yet wide-ranging contributions focused on the rapidly growing area of eye tracking in Translation Studies, this volume provides readers with an insightful cross-section of the state of the art in this multidisciplinary field. Showcasing the great potential and challenges of this still nascent paradigm, it offers novel, practical methods and approaches to conduct ambitious, experimental studies. Through a variety of methodologically-oriented chapters and case studies, categorised into three key areas – ‘Method’, ‘Process’ and ‘Product’ –, the book presents some of the most up-to-date eye-tracking methods and results in Translation Studies, including experiment design, statistical and analytical approaches, the translation process, audience and reader response, and audiovisual translation. The reproducible research protocols, re-iterative approaches and ambitious triangulations of data included in this volume seek to inspire new research using eye tracking in Translation Studies by providing the necessary methodological support and ideas for new avenues of inquiry.
Eye-tracking is quickly becoming a valuable tool in applied linguistics research as it provides a 'real-time', direct measure of cognitive processing effort. This book provides a straightforward introduction to the technology and how it might be used in language research. With a strong focus on the practicalities of designing eye-tracking studies that achieve the standard of other well-established experimental techniques, it provides valuable information about building and designing studies, touching on common challenges and problems, as well as solutions. Importantly, the book looks at the use of eye-tracking in a wide variety of applied contexts including reading, listening and multi-modal input, writing, testing, corpus linguistics, translation, stylistics, and computer-mediated communication. Each chapter finishes with a simple checklist to help researchers use eye-tracking in a wide variety of language studies. Discussion is grounded in concrete examples, which will allow users coming to the technology for the first time to gain the knowledge and confidence to use it to produce high quality research.
This comprehensive guide explains the symptoms and terminology associated with children who struggle in school because of underachievement and learning problems and offers parents practical solutions. Over seven million children suffer from learning difficulties. Most of these children are stuck in classrooms where their needs are not met or even recognized by an overcrowded school system. However, with the right information and diagnostic tools, parents can provide life-long learning skills specially targeted to their children’s needs. This book lays out the symptoms, terms, and strategies parents will encounter if their child has a learning block and explains how to convey their child’s needs and condition to teachers. Categorized and cross-referenced for easy access, ROADBLOCKS TO LEARNING covers over 70 different obstacles to learning. From study skills to ADD, from problem solving to teacher-child conflict, this indispensable guide is for all parents who want to ensure their child is learning to his/her full potential.
