摘要: 本研究采用美国SIOP(庇护式教学观察协议)教学理念,利用其将内容与学科知识相融合的教学模式特点进行教学设计,以探索非英语专业大学生商务英语教学的新模式。SIOP教学模式以可理解性假说和社会文化理论为依托,以低威胁性环境、可理解性输入、综合性评价为特征。研究者对实验班及对照班60名商务英语学习者进行对比教学并采用平衡分层实验设计,于学期初和学期终分别对两个班级进行调查问卷、学业成绩前测与后测,通过对测试结果进行横向及纵向对比定量分析,以及对实验班小组访谈定性分析后,得出研究结论:基于SIOP模式的商务英语课程设计和教学实践有助于降低学习者焦虑,提高其英语技能及学科知识掌握程度,是现阶段专门用途英语课程设计的一种新尝试。

Abstract: Based on SIOP (The Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol) Model instruction theory from the United States of America, this study harnesses its instruction features in combining language contents with subject knowledge, and applies it to the curriculum design of Business English, a course for non-English-major college students, in order to explore a new teaching mode for the course. SIOP Model is theoretically supported by Stephen D. Krashen’s Hypothesis of Comprehensible Input and Lev Vygotsky’s Socio-cultural Theory, featuring non-threatening environment, comprehensible input and comprehensive assessment. The researchers have conducted a balanced hierarchy experiment on 60 business English learners from experimental class and control class respectively with different teaching methods (the SIOP instruction mode and the usual instruction mode). They tested and surveyed the two classes at the beginning of the term and end of the term to collect raw data. After horizontal and vertical comparative study of the data in quantitative analysis, and the study of the recording and the manuscript of group interview in experimental class in qualitative analysis, a conclusion is reached that Business English course design and classroom application based on SIOP Model helps students to lower their English classroom anxiety, to improve their English language skills, as well as their business subject knowledge. Therefore, business English curriculum design and classroom application based on SIOP model is proved to be a new successful attempt for the current curriculum design of ESP English, and provides a fresh line of thinking for the expansion and development of foreign language teaching reform.
