Series: Progress in Education
BISAC: EDU000000

In this compilation, the authors address how school staff can support excessively anxious adolescents. It is important that teachers are equipped with the knowledge to identify anxiety disorders in students given their increasing prevalence.

An approach is presented with the goal of facilitating educational transformation for indigenous languages through research, with Afrikology as a compass for the agenda of decolonising the language of teaching and learning in an open distance and e-learning setting. Progress in Education. Volume 63 also sets out to develop an understanding of Taiwanese English language teachers’ levels of intercultural sensitivity and their willingness to teach interculturally, as the English language is used as the medium of communication in a wide variety of international and intercultural settings.

The general and developmental characteristics of students with visual impairment are described, and information regarding the educational processes of students with visual impairment is presented.

A study is included which examines how to best support English learners as they develop as writers of opinion papers though a multiple case study in a 4th grade English as a second language classroom.

The authors discuss the empirical results of novel tools in the context of writing in order to better understand the relationship between technology and writing instruction.

The educational and psychological importance of fables for child development is highlighted, underlining how they, if used appropriately, can become valuable and effective didactic tools.

Lastly, the authors highlight the typical challenges and deficiencies in information literacy knowledge, as well as skills that are recognized among undergraduate students. Opportunities to improve the information literacy of undergraduate students (particularly in cognitive levels) are also discussed.
