사고구조 변환법을 통한 쓰기와 문법 지도의 효과
This study empirically examines the effects of the 'Thought Structure Conversion Method(TSCM)'for teaching writing and grammar to academically underprepared college students. The TSCM is an English teaching and learning method to convert the learners' thought structure from the original Korean word order to the English word order. It is one of the two core operational systems which construct the 'Five Dimensional English Learning Method' with the Vocal Structure Conversion Method(VSCM). Tests through 'Test and Retest Method'and questionnaires were administered to fifty subjects to analyze the effects of TSCM. The subjects participating in this experimental study for 15 weeks showed statistically significant improvement of their writing ability. The findings of this study confirm the value of using this method for teaching writing and grammar to college students of low-level English.
