Kitakyushu JALT:

Reverse-engineering communication tasks

Date: Saturday, December 8th, 2001 Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Speaker: Craig P. Lambert, Kitakyushu University

The speaker will introduce an approach to planning sequences of communication tasks that require learners to become personally invested in their learning. In the approach, learners are required to draw on their own ideas and personal resources to create, as a product of earlier tasks in a given sequence, the content and resource materials on which subsequent tasks in the sequence operate. The talk will be supported with many examples of classroom materials to illustrate the design principles. Participants will gain an increased understanding of the potential of tasks as a planning tool in second language education and a framework for experimenting with the approach in their own classes.
