Among the various social variables such as power, solidarity, age and gender, the aim of this study is to examine how the linguistic act of differences of opinion is produced by Iranian male and female spokespeople in two formal and informal contexts. The data from the study included: (a) the DCT questionnaire, which included different gender and formalities, and (b) interviews, observations and audiovisual conversations that included the language act in question for qualitative analysis. The data were analyzed as part of speech-act theory and facial theory was considered an explanation of the reason for the use of appropriate courtesy strategies. The results of the quantitative and qualitative analysis showed, on the one hand, that there is a positive link between, on the one hand, the conservability of differences of opinion and the degree of formality of situations; the sexist effect was observed by female speeches in the higher degree of formality of differences of opinion. Education has never been bipartisan. Influenced by economic, political and social influences, education, educators and various interest groups have taken sides in providing institutionalized education to children and adult learners. Teaching, which is right or wrong, ethical or unethical, fair or unjust, can be exactly the case, depending on where education and training takes place in the world. Education alone can be understood as a first step towards indoctrination in a community and the nation`s way of life. Despite differences of opinion, the ultimate goal of serving students remains of the utmost importance. At the same time, the work of educators has put them at the forefront of many debates and controversies that have hijacked the profession. The process of personal information in the midst of these pedagogical considerations may not be an easy task, but it may be necessary given the impact of one`s own choices and attitudes on learners. This book focuses on current and critical topics in the debate that confronts educators in American educational institutions.
The specificity of the book is based on its socratic approach to content. Each chapter begins with an examination of a question of interest and ends with a number of related questions. Readers are invited to understand the materials individually and with others, so that everyone can draw their own conclusions. This book will interest and benefit education professionals in all areas of their professional careers, from new professionals and students in training to people with extensive experience in all educational disciplines.
