Exploring Differences in Perspectives on Microanalysis of Classroom Discourse: Green & Dixon 2002

In the past four decades, a rich body of traditions has developed, providing those researching language from an applied linguistics framework opportunities to select approaches that best address their particular questions. This can also be viewed as problematic. How can we understand what difference these differences in approaches make to the development of knowledge about language and other social phenomena?

Shona Whyte's insight:

"The issue is not which is best, but what each contributes and what could not be known without that particular perspective."  Cited by Marco Cappellini at CRELA conference.

Thewissen 2012: Accuracy across proficiency levels : insights from an error-tagged EFL learner corpus

PhD dissertation using learner corpora: 

"The behavioural trends found in the learner corpus sample were subsequently compared with the development implied in the CEF descriptors for grammatical accuracy, vocabulary control, orthographic control, coherence and cohesion. It was revealed that using the development attested by learner corpus data could lead to stronger, more concrete language descriptors for specific learner groups at given proficiency levels."

On the contingent nature of language learning tasks: Hellerman & Pekarek, 2009

Using methods from conversation analysis, this paper explores ways that teacher‐designed language‐learning task interactions can vary in their performance due to the nature of face‐to‐face interaction. The analysis describes three task interactions from language‐learning classrooms, showing how the contingencies that are necessitated by learners working in small groups provide for different task performance as well as different potentials for language learning. The video‐recorded interactions come from two different classroom contexts: adult English‐language learners in the USA and adolescent learners of French in Switzerland. In each context, the learners are engaged in a directions‐giving task. Participants’ individual and group orientations to these similar teacher‐designed tasks lead to different co‐constructed performances of the task and, in each case, unique learning potentials.

English Language Teaching Materials: Harwood, 2010

English Language Teaching Materials: Harwood, 2010 | TELT | Scoop.it

This volume presents a union of theoretical and practical pedagogical perspectives on materials design and development. This volume provides an incisive overview of the current state of materials design in language teaching. Seventeen original chapters explore the issues involved in the design, implementation, and evaluation of materials in language programs in a wide variety of settings and contexts. This stimulating collection considers different approaches to materials design - including teacher-developed classroom materials, commercial materials, and technology-driven materials. Discussion questions and tasks follow each chapter to make this volume useful to both prospective and practicing teachers alike.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Excerpt from introduction making the case for the theorisation and teaching of materials design for language teachers.  Edited volume with chapters by Ellis, Reinders & White, and others.
