Introduction Tasks: Establishing the Context Tasks in Research and Language Education What is a task? What role do tasks play in the EFL classroom? The emergence of tasks - why? Are there precursors to tasks? What research is available? What research is appropriate? Some implications on how to develop language learning in a postmethod pedagogy Tasks in Research: Results Tasks in Second Language Learning Research Some general introductory remarks A survey of SLL task research Conclusion: On appropriate task research Tasks in Language Education: Task Features Tuning in: Evaluating the quality of task features on the basis of your experience Establishing the context: Relating task features to the learning context Task features that support language learning Tasks: Process Developing a TSLL Framework Tuning in: Reflecting on tasks as the central pedagogical unit Syllabuses: Organizing pedagogic tasks Tasks in context: Explaining the role of coursebooks A German TSLL context: Presenting a task sequence Tasks in the classroom: Considering major aspects of task design Tasks types: Finding the right mix A framework for TSLL: Sequencing tasks Illustrating the TSLL Framework Phase 1 Coursebook as resource Phase 2 Pre-task Phase 3 Task cycle Phase 4 Post-task Task Complexity Tuning in: Evaluating task complexity of a primary coursebook task Task complexity: A challenge for teachers SLL models of task complexity Task complexity: Pedagogical dimensions Input (text) level Communicative and cognitive processing demands Two task examples: Evaluating task complexity The 6th grade example: In the neighbourhood. Task list The 9th/10th grade example: Seedfolks. Task list Teacher Role in TSLL Tuning in: The relevance of the teacher Research on the teacher: Types and relevance of research Findings: Research on teacher role in TBLT/TSLL What can we learn from SLL research? What can we learn from classroom research? Perspectives Learner Role in TSLL Tuning in: The central role of the learner Developments in research approaches on learners and tasks Classroom-based studies on learner roles in TSLL General aspects that have been researched Specific aspects that have been researched Perspectives Tasks: Content Developing Intercultural Communicative Competences (ICC) Tuning in: Integrating language and culture in ICC Looking at a task example Developing ICC: A model Designing tasks based on Byram's model: Some issues Looking at research in ICC Developing multiliteracies: Incorporating a cultural studies approach Summarizing: A tentative ICC task sequence Integrating Skills: Different levels, scopes, demands and support Tuning in: Creating awareness of the relevance of skills in different language learning contexts General task features that support language development and context-specific realisations Context-specific attainment goals Context-appropriate skills focus Learner-appropriate tasks Context-appropriate task demands and resulting task support Illustrating task features: Task examples Talking about pets at different language learning levels Primary Level: Talking about pets (integrating skills) Secondary Level: Talking about pets (integrating skills) The Subskills of Lexico-Grammar and Focus on Form (FoF) Tuning in: Introducing the concept of lexico-grammar Evaluating a FoF example Teaching grammar following the PPP approach FoF in SLL research A task-based example of teaching FoF Guidelines for developing FoF tasks in TSLL Challenges for teachers Assessing Competences Tuning in: Clarifying terminology Why do we assess? Functions of assessment How do we assess? Principles of assessment Direct performance-based and criterion-referenced assessment Formative assessment What is good assessment practice in a TSLL context? Which alternative forms of assessment support complex forms of assessment? References Index
