Shizuoka JALT:

Task Sequence and Design for all Classrooms

Date: Sunday, November 23rd, 2008 Time: 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: John Gunning

The presenter will give a brief introduction of tasks related to motivational theory based on the Pintrich and De Groot's Model (1990). Then, in a workshop format, take the participants through a receptive skills listening lesson specifically focusing on task sequences and how that may help or hinder student learning by improving their levels of motivation. The presenter will then give evidence of how task sequences improved his students' motivational levels based on a classroom action research project. This will be followed by a group discussion focusing on how teachers and educators can improve levels of student motivation based on the participants own teaching situations
