Abstract:

Over the past two decades, task-based language teaching (TBLT) has gained
considerable momentum in the field of language education. This volume
presents a collection of 20 reprinted articles and chapters representative
of work that appeared during that period. It introduces readers­ -
graduate students, researchers, teachers - ­to foundational ideas and
themes that have marked the emergence of TBLT. The editors provide a first
chapter that locates TBLT within broader discourses of educational practice
and research on language learning and teaching. The book then features four
sections consisting of important, often difficult to find, writings on
major themes: fundamental ideas, approaches, and definitions in TBLT;
curriculum, syllabus, and task design; variables affecting task-based
language learning and performance; and task-based assessment. In a
concluding chapter, the editors challenge simplistic notions of TBLT by
reflecting on how this body of work has initiated the possibility of a
truly researched language pedagogy, and they highlight critical directions
in TBLT research and practice for the future.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non 
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be 
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers 
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any 
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting 
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills 
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure 
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. 
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
