This third edition of Teaching and Researching Writing continues to build upon the previous editions’ work of providing educators and practitioners in applied linguistics with a clearly written and complete guide to writing research and teaching. The text explores both theoretical and conceptual questions, grapples with key issues in the field today, and demonstrates the dynamic relationship between research and teaching methods and practice. This revised third edition has been reorganized to incorporate new topics, including discussions of technology, identity, and error correction, as well as new chapters to address the innovative directions the field has taken since the previous edition’s publication. Boxes throughout, including "Concepts" and "Quotes", help to both reinforce readers’ understanding of the topics covered by highlighting key ideas and figures in the field, while the updated glossary and resource sections allow readers to further investigate areas of interest. This updated edition of Teaching and Researching Writing is the ideal resource for language teachers, practitioners, and researchers to better understand and apply writing research theories, methods, and practices.

Speaking is a dynamic, interpersonal process and one that strongly influences how we are perceived by others in a range of formal and everyday contexts. Despite this, speaking is often researched and taught as if it is simply writing delivered in a different mode. In Teaching and Researching Speaking, Rebecca Hughes suggests that we have less understanding than we might of important meaning-making aspects of speech such as prosody, gaze, affect, and the ways speakers collaborate and negotiate with one another in interaction. This thoroughly revised and updated second edition looks to the future of the field, offering: A new chapter on assessment, discussing 'high stakes' oral language testing contexts such as immigration New material considering access to spoken data via the worldwide web and new technologies that allow neurolinguistic insights formerly hidden from view Summaries and case studies to help the reader understand how to approach researching speaking and encourages practitioners to question the models of speaking that they are using in their classrooms. Reviewing materials and assessment practices in the light of current knowledge about spoken language, and highlighting areas for new work and collaboration between researchers and practitioners, this book will be a valuable resource for anyone involved in language teaching.

Computers increasingly play an important role in education, particularly language learning. But Computer-assisted Language Learning (CALL) is constantly undergoing change because of technological advances that create opportunities to revisit old ideas, to conduct new research and to challenge established beliefs about the ways in which teaching and learning can be carried out both with and without a human teacher. This book offers teachers and researchers a better understanding of CALL through: A comprehensive overview of CALL Step-by-step instructions on conducting research projects in CALL Extensive resources in the form of contacts, websites and free software references A glossary of terms related to CALL CALL is a field tied closely to other areas of study within applied linguistics such as autonomy in language learning, as well as to the teaching of particular language skills. It also reaches out to other disciplines such as computer science. Exploring research opportunities and practice in CALL encourages innovation, both in the use of new technology and in our ways of working imaginatively with it to create new learning opportunities. Dr Ken Beatty is Senior Lecturer for Information Technology in the Division of Languages at City University of Hong Kong.

Teaching and Researching Reading was first written to help language professionals understand the complex nature of reading. Now in a thoroughly updated and improved second edition, the book expands connections from research on reading to instructional practices and teacher-initiated action research. Offering an updated overview of reading theory, it summarises key ideas and issues in first and second language contexts. In addition to providing insightful research analyses, Grabe and Stoller offer practical advice for practitioners and researchers, including evidence-based teaching ideas and a multi-step iterative process for conducting meaningful action research on reading-related topics. The volume outlines 29 projects for teacher adaptation and use, as well as numerous new or substantially expanded resource materials that can be used for both action research and classroom instruction. Learning aids featured throughout the volume include · key concept boxes and a glossary of key terms · quote boxes highlighting critical issues in the field · resource lists of relevant journals, books and websites Fully revised throughout, with a range of new exemplary L1 and L2 research studies and an entirely new chapter on the move from research implications to instructional applications, this second edition of Teaching and Researching Listening is an invaluable resource for teacher trainers, practicing teachers, materials writers and researchers alike.

Computers play a crucial and rapidly evolving role in education, particularly in the area of language learning. Far from being a tool mimicking a textbook or teacher, Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) has the power to transform language learning through the pioneering application of innovative research and practices. Technological innovation creates opportunities to revisit old ideas, conduct new research and challenge established beliefs, meaning that the field is constantly undergoing change. This fully revised second edition brings teachers and researchers up-to-date by offering: A comprehensive overview of CALL and current research issues Step-by-step instructions on conducting research projects in CALL Extensive resources in the form of contacts, websites and free software references A glossary of terms related to CALL Closely linked to other branches of study such as autonomy in language learning and computer science, CALL is at the cutting edge of current research directions. This book is essential reading for all teachers and researchers interested in using CALL to make language learning a richer, more productive and more enjoyable task. Ken Beatty has taught at colleges and universities in Canada, Asia and the Middle East. His publications include more than 100 textbooks for learning English as a Second Language, as well as various websites, CD-ROMs and educational videos.

Researching Second Language Classrooms

This text introduces teachers to research methods they can use to examine their own classrooms in order to become more effective teachers. Becoming familiar with classroom-based research methods not only enables teachers to do research in their own classrooms, it also provides a basis for assessing the findings of existing research. McKay emphasizes throughout that what a teacher chooses to examine will dictate which method is most effective. Each chapter includes activities to help readers apply the methods described in the chapter, often by analyzing research data. *Chapter I, Classroom Research, introduces the reader to major research purposes and research types as they relate to classroom research, the distinction between quantitative and qualitative research, the formulation of research questions and research designs, and ethical issues in research. *Chapter II, Researching Teachers and Learners, presents research methods that can be used to examine teachers' and learners' attitudes and behaviors: action research, survey research, interviews, verbal reports, diary studies, case studies, and ethnographies. *Chapter III, Researching Classroom Discourse, deals with methods that can be used to study the oral and written discourse of classrooms: interaction analysis, discourse analysis, text analysis, and ways to examine the social and political assumptions underlying the choice and presentation of content in second language teaching materials. *Chapter IV, Writing Research Reports, provides guidelines for both thesis writing and journal articles. Researching Second Language Classrooms is an ideal text for TESOL research methods courses and an essential resource for inservice teachers who wish to undertake classroom research.
