Fukuoka JALT:

Learning To Perform Narrative Tasks In The L2 Classroom: A longitudinal intact-group semester long study of task sequencing effects

Date: Saturday, January 26th, 2013 Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Speaker: Craig Lambert (University of Kitakyushu)

The talk will consist of three section of 20 minutes each followed by discussion. The first will provide an overview the SSARC model of L2 task sequencing. The second will talk about a set of teaching material designed for Japanese university-level English majors based on this model. Finally, the third segment will discuss the results of a classroom-based research design which compared the gains of learners who were taught with these materials to those who were taught with a content-based approach to instruction.

Craig Lambert is Associate Professor in the Faculty of Foreign Studies at the University of Kitakyushu. His publications have focus on the effects of task design factors on L2 production, task-based needs analysis, and task-based materials planning.

This presentation is based on the following paper: Lambert, C. & Robinson, P. (To appear in early 2014). In Baralt, M., Gilabert, R. & Robinson, P. (Eds). Task Sequencing in Instruction Second Language Learning. London: Continuum Books.
