Series Title: Applied Linguistics and Language Study
Description:

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.
