Download e-book for kindle: Como escrever um ensaio acadêmico: Passos simples para uma by Jeremias Sabingo Henriques

By Jeremias Sabingo Henriques

ISBN-10: 3668081662

ISBN-13: 9783668081666

Essay from the yr 2015 within the topic Speech technology / Linguistics, grade: zero, Atlantic overseas college, path: Mestre em Educacão, language: Portugues, summary: Este trabalho visa sobretudo ajudar aos professores e alunos do Iº e IIº do Ensino secundário de 8-13º ano de escolaridade de Angola no que concerne a programas de investigação em diferentes disciplinas de saber. Professores que perguntam aos alunos e nunca recebem a resposta desejada a curto, medio ou longo prazo! Este trabalho bem como também pode servir a estudante universitários para consulta ou aprimorar os seus conhecimentos na hora de realizar pequenos trabalhos científicos de 1,3,5 ou mesmo 15 páginas.

Essas situações têm tido repercussões na vida académica sobretudo dos alunos e estudantes ocasionando surpresas desagraveis que se chega a ter pessoas a nível more suitable não sabe como escrever o seu trabalho. O que muitos estudantes fazem é copiar e colar, cultivando cada vez mais a cultura de desonestidade académica cada vez acentuada. Como professor sempre perguntei trabalhos feitos por outros como eles conseguiram isso? Porque também não fazem isso? Escrevendo trabalho e postando on-line para os outros lerem! A resposta nunca foi satisfatória para nossa classe como docente.

As perguntas dos professores angolanos geralmente não recebem respostas satisfatórias. E neste elo de ligação como docente queremos expor os estudantes como sendo o elo mais fraco, e visto de uma outra forma pode-se chegar a conclusão de que o professor também é o elo mais fraco. O aluno é fraco e o professor é mais fraco ainda. Porque o professor pode ser o elo mais fraco? Ele quere que o seu trabalho seja feito, infelizmente não diz como deverá ser feito! Como consequência o aluno faz como poder e geralmente o trabalho não chega nas expectativas do docente.

As experiencias ganhas na AIU sobre o seu método inovador de ensino fez reflexionar e aproximar paradigmas no novo contexto educacional angolano. Por intermedio da AIU o autor aprendeu a escrever um ensaio científico, contando com o suporte de académicos que o ajudaram para aprender a escrever de forma correta, o que pensou ser difícil com orientações corretas torna-se fácil para se fazer. Mais empenho e dedicação evitar-se-á perguntas sem respostas e os professores deixariam pelo menos de ser o elo mais fraco. Ninguém pode mandar fazer um trabalho sem explicar como deverá ser feito, ou também sem saber como será o resultado o que tem provocado choque entre estudantes e docentes.
