Tasks and Communicating in Language Classrooms (McGraw-Hill Second Language Professional Series) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tasks and Communicating in Language Classrooms is a significant new work in the area of classroom communication. This text takes a principled approach to how one can take the basic question-and-answer paradigm found in many, if not most, language textbooks and reformulate it into interactive tasks that place communication in the hands of the student-learners. This text is practical in terms of task development and task-based test design and development, and simultaneously well-grounded in theory and research. Continuing in the tradition of bringing theory, research, and practice together into one volume, Lee's work is a welcome addition to the McGraw-Hill Second Language Professional Series.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 151-156) and index.
