By the end of the course, students should have become:
1. familiarized with second language learning theories as applied to instructed settings
2. familiarized with second language learning theories as applied to naturalistic learning settings
3. able to relate language learning theories to themselves as learners and teachers.
4. able to use learning task evaluation as a tool to investigate second language learning in their classrooms.
This course is designed to explore major theories of second language acquisition in both naturalistic and instructed learning settings and uncover what the theories have to offer to second and foreign language teachers. The students will discuss learner centered influences on language learning and why these influences may help second language teachers account for features of learners’ language they observe. Finally, they will learn techniques for investigating student learning in the classroom.
