Abstract:

Understanding how task complexity affects second language learning,
interaction and spoken and written performance is essential to informed
decisions about task design and sequencing in TBLT programs. The chapters in
this volume all examine evidence for claims of the Cognition Hypothesis that
complex tasks should promote greater accuracy and complexity of speech and
writing, as well as more interaction, and learning of information provided in the
input to task performance, than simpler tasks. Implications are drawn
concerning the basic pedagogic claim of the Cognition Hypothesis, that tasks
should be sequenced for learners from simple to complex during syllabus
design. Containing theoretical discussion of the Cognition Hypothesis, and
cutting-edge empirical studies of the effects of task complexity on second
language learning and performance, this book will be important reading for
language teachers, graduate students and researchers in applied linguistics,
second language acquisition, and cognitive and educational psychology.
