Gunma JALT:

Designing a Themed Task-Based Syllabus

Date: Sunday, September 26th, 2010 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Marcos Benevides

There are many advantages to themed syllabuses for L2 instruction: the natural recycling of core vocabulary and language forms; the inclusion and scaffolding of otherwise inaccessible content; the possibility for a rapid increase in task complexity; the engaging exploration of a specific subject matter; the creation of relatively authentic L2 spaces for FL contexts. Based on his experience in materials development, the speaker will demonstrate how themed syllabuses can be developed for any teaching level.
