Title: Language Teaching Research and Language Pedagogy
Written By: Rod Ellis

Description:

In recent years, great strides have been made in our understanding of what
makes foreign language teaching most effective. "Language Teaching Research
and Language Pedagogy" provides a critical overview of the most up-to-date
research centered on the second language classroom, and examines the
implications of this research for both the teaching and learning of foreign
languages. The book offers illuminating insights into the important
relationship between research and teaching, and the inherent complexities
of the teaching and learning of foreign languages in classroom settings. It
traces the development of language teaching research and examines current
methodology used to investigate the L2 classroom, considering comparative
method studies and various aspects of L2 classroom interaction, with a
focus on contributions from both teachers and learners. Additional topics
covered include current research on tasks, the relationship between
interaction and L2 learning, form-focused instruction, and the mediating
role played by individual learner factors such as language aptitude and
motivation. A concluding chapter considers myriad ways that classroom
research can inform language pedagogy.
