Education (EDUC) - Research Themes in Second Language Education

EDUC 5586  Research Themes in Second Language Education


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




This course involves a critical examination of representative empirical studies of second language education-- their objectives, design, implementation and effectiveness. Each week will provide a choice of readings from three domains: FSL, ESL and additional language learning. Research issues to be examined include product studies (e.g. second language outcomes associated with a specific delivery model) and process studies (e.g. the influence of particular instructional strategies on student learning and attitudes.) The course should acquaint students with major, relevant research paradigms and permit them to develop proposals for research in second language education in their own classrooms or elsewhere.
