The Federated States of Micronesia is located in the Western Pacific, south of Guam and the Northern Marianas Islands.There are four states in the Federated States of Micronesia known as Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei and Yap (Lee, Balick, & Ling, 2001).

It was narrated by FR.Francis X. Hezel, S.J.

! A Critique of Coming of Age in Samoa ! Coming of Age in Samoa is the book that resulted from Margaret Meadʼs ﬁeldwork done in the Samoan Islands. This paper will show that the greatest success of Meadʼs ethnography was the accessible nature of her writing and the controversial nature of her subject. Although I believe that Coming of Age in Samoa was an overall success there are aspects of Meadʼs research and writing that I believe she should have done differently.
Cook was also learned the basics of the language, and was able to ask about how the locals controlled the canoes and places they had explored with them (PBS). Tupa’ia helped to answer Cook’s question of how the canoes were navigated, and where they had been. Cook learned that “the Tahitians had a "compass" provided by the sun, moon and stars and that they used this to orient themselves at sea” (PBS).

The Reading Recovery program is a research-based approach that was first developed and implemented in New Zealand during the 1970s. Following the 1970s, Reading Recovery spread throughout England, Australia, and the United States. During the last thirty years there have been significant studies performed to validate the widespread use of the program.

Mei Ling Choo Simons Delmonte! 1 Background Essay - Helping higher level learners understand and use headers and tails in spoken discourse Introduction The reason for teaching headers and tails, which refer to the position of clause elements in spoken discourse, is twofold. They are widely used in conversation with distinct functions but are often not dealt with in conventional course books or traditional grammars. Based on extensive research into the CANCODE spoken corpus, they are among the ten criteria for a spoken grammar identiﬁed by McCarthy, M. and Carter, R. (2001; p.64) as deserving “proper attention, since they play key textual and interpersonal roles in conversation”. Learners who become adept at using these features would be able to engage in discourse with any number of English speakers.
