Series Title: Task-Based Language Teaching: Issues, Research and Practice 1
Description:

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.
