In this study, the relationship between the Education Faculty students' ability to use the tools of cohesion and achieve coherence in their written texts was investigated. In addition, the relationship between the department of study and the student's ability to use the tools of cohesion was observed. The texts written by the students on free writing sessions were evaluated based on two text criteria, cohesion and coherence. This work was conducted in Ahi Evran University Faculty of Education on the academic year 2013-2014. The subject group of the study comprises 126 students from the departments of Science Teaching, Social Sciences Teaching, Primary Education-Level Mathematics Teaching, Classroom Teaching, Computer and Teaching Technologies Education and Turkish Education. Document evaluation method was used in the study. “Evaluation Criteria for The Tools of Cohesion” developed by Coşkun (2005) was used in identification of the elements of coherence, whereas “Evaluation Criteria for the Paragraph Coherence” developed by Can (2012) was used in evaluation of texts in terms of coherence. Results of the study showed that the ability of the students from the departments of Turkish Education and Classroom Teaching to use the tools of cohesion is significantly different compared to other departments. Moreover, it was concluded that the ability of the students to use the tools of cohesion is positively and significantly correlated with the coherence of their written texts.

The article is devoted to the issues of working out and implementing various taks used in teaching undergraduate students and aimed at forming project and research competencies. The article presents the data of the research conducted at the Faculty of Psychology, Tomsk State University (Russian Federation). The research draws on the study of the global educational trends in the stated field, the study of the tasks’ content and students’ work peculiarities. The conclusion is drawn on the necessity of considering activating teaching methods while working out and implementing such tasks in order to activate undergraduate students’ knowledge, their research potential. We see the research competence as the key one in determining student’s academic and professional success and suppose that such kind of education based on research will allow the students to generate knowledge independently to fulfill academic and professional assignments in future

Senior English Teachers’ Understanding of and Practices in Mentoring

The concept of mentoring was introduced in February, 2010 at a training conference for all SETs in the Batinah South Region. In the study, it was shown that SETs have a limited understanding of mentoring due to the lack of knowledge they have of the process. This has been inferred from the limited definitions of the process the participants presented and from the few examples given by the SETs on the requisite skills and the kinds of support needed for the teachers. None of the participants mentioned the concepts of professional and personal development or professional and personal support. Moreover, none of the participants mentioned professional and personal development as the main purpose of their mentoring work, but they did mention examples that lead to either development. Participant F mentioned professional development when she said, “as you know . . . peer observation is part of the professional development of the teacher.” Furthermore, most of the participants' responses are attributed to either the experience they gained from working as SETs or from their knowledge of the duties they are expected to perform as SETs, especially in their descriptions of how to conduct PLDs, which was found to be the same with the both groups.
