Temple University Japan:

Classroom Second Language Acquisition Processes

Date: Sunday, September 15th, 2002 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Amy Ohta , University of Washington

This seminar by Amy Ohta will focus on classroom second language acquisition processes. The seminar will consider research results, methodology for studying SLA processes of classroom foreign language learners, and theoretical constructs useful for understanding how learners acquire language in the classroom setting. The seminar will begin by focusing on questions of interest to classroom teachers including how classroom tasks can be developed to better promote L2 acquisition in the classroom setting. After this, a sociocognitive framework useful for considering language learning processes will be presented. Applications of the framework and research results will be presented. The full seminar will include discussion and hands-on data analysis components. For example, participants will have the opportunity to examine examples of L2 discourse produced by beginning and intermediate foreign language learners of Japanese in order to learn to identify SLA processes in learner talk. Student papers will incorporate analysis of L2 classroom interactive data.
