India, aparte de a Mougli, tenemos a los angeles astuta mangosta Riki-tiki-tavi, a Tuméi −el muchacho al que le es dado presenciar el legendario baile de los elefantes−, al santón Purun, al reportero que conoce l. a. lengua de los animales y es testigo de una reveladora conversación entre las bestias de carga del Ejército de Su Majestad… Cierto es, por otro lado, que el sueño infantil de ser hermano de todos los animales y de verse libre de todas las restricciones humanas está presente en casi todos los cuentos con un poder cautivador.

32 - October 2009 ESL Literature Review Update Writing Workshop In writing workshops students in the classroom work independently on self-selected pieces of writing. The teacher moves from student to student monitoring progress, offering suggestions, helping children write and rewrite their drafts. Typically, however, teachers of ESL students tend to view feedback as a passive process and focus on “fixing-up” a finished product rather than as a developmental process (Hyland, 2000). Research indicates that ESL writers require extensive communication about approaches to writing and feedback strategies and not just feedback based on writing problems (Hyland, 2000).
Other literature presents BICS and CALP as a continuum. The metaphor of an iceberg has been used to describe the continuum, with BICS being represented by the portion of the iceberg which is above the surface, and CALP lying below the surface (Roessingh, 2006a). When learners are young, they become familiar with “here and now” language, and gradually transition into understanding “there and then” language and metaphoric competence. Comprehensible Input Comprehensible Input strategies ensure that a student understands a teacher’s written or oral communication.
Computer-Mediated Communication One study of ESL elementary-school students observed students’ use of an electronic discussion board for three computer-mediated communication (CMC) activities (Zha, Kelly, Park, & Fitzgerald 2006). Data collected over a six-week period showed that students participated more in collaborative activities than individual activities, increasingly used written communication for individual expression and entertainment, and their corrected own language use upon observing peers’ language use.
