Subject: Applied Linguistics: Researching Pedagogic tasks

RESEARCHING PEDAGOGIC TASKS: Second Language Learning, Teaching, and Testing
Martin Bygate, University of Leeds; 
Peter Skehan, School of Education, King's College, London; 
Merrill Swain, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of 
 the University of Toronto
	 
Researching Pedagogic Tasks brings together a series of empirical
studies into the use of pedagogical tasks for second language
learning, with a view to better understanding the structure of tasks,
their impact on students, and their use by teachers. The volume
starts with an introduction to the background and key issues in the
topic area and is then organised into three sections:

* the first section focuses on the language and learning of students 
 on tasks
* the second on the use of tasks in the language classroom
* the third on the use of tasks for language testing
	
Each section begins with a succinct section introduction, and the
volume concludes with an afterword relating the theme of the volume to
issues in curriculum development. The chapters include both
experimental and qualitative approaches to the topic, some providing
original accounts of specific studies, others offering overviews of
linked series of studies. The book will be of interest to graduate
students in Applied Linguistics, teacher educators, testers, materials
writers, senior teachers, and researchers.
