Abstract:

Designed for students of applied linguistics and TEFL on research
training courses, practising language teachers, and those in training,
this combination textbook/workbook is the first to provide specific
advice and support to those wishing to learn how to approach the
critical analysis of a research paper. It seeks to answer a current
need in the literature for a set of procedures that can be applied to
the independent reading of quantitative research. In an authoritative
and accessible text, Porte examines the key components of a research
paper in this field, highlighting those features demanding rigorous
critical attention from the enquiring reader. Innovative features of
the workbook include awareness-raising reading tasks and guided
exercises to help develop and practise the critical skills required to
appraise papers independently. Through informed and constructive
appraisal of others' work, readers themselves are shown how
to become more research literate, to discov! er new areas for
investigation, and to organise and present their own work more
effectively for publication and peer evaluation.
