Transcript of Pagoda Academy: Task-Based Learning

Foundation Showtime.. Examples.... 3 Task Stages TASK-BASED LEARNING Learning by placing students in tasks that require them to do things that individuals typically do in their everyday lives outside of class. What is Task-Based Learning ?? ...and in-between This includes tasks done at a workplace during leisure time We want the students to use authentic language to complete a situation they are given…. The focus….. How is this different from other Learning methods??? …the typical method most new ESL teachers in the SLE Program will be using is more of a “Presentation, Practice, Production”(PPP) method PPP Method PRESENTATION: PRACTICE: PRODUCTION: language items are presented by the teacher "This is a Pear" "This is an Apple "Fill in the Fruit name.... This “PPP” method helps introduce grammar and will be grammatically correct, but the controlled structure may prove hard to use in everyday real-world activities in SLE. We can use role plays, questionnaires, videos, audio clips, readings, photos, maps and cultural items to teach tasked based learning. Many of the textbooks use a good selection already but you know your class best.

You want your student to carry out a communicative task. How can you use task-based learning ??? BE CREATIVE WITH THIS!! Stage 3: Final Presentation Stage 2: Task Cycle Stage 1: Pre-Task 1) Introduce the topic in the unit, make it clear.

2) An intro activity (can be warm up) to recall useful words and phrases to perform main task.

3) 0r supply new words essential to complete the task (without ovewhelming) -Students perform a task: a role play, script reading, listening or problem-solving exercise

- Do in pairs or groups

- By observing and doing the task they can conclude what took place - Students present conclusions, learned and observed in task. Teacher will have concept checking.

-Present in written or spoken form (spoken in SLE)

-This is where language comes into play. (language issues, prior knowledge)

- Language features are highlighted and worked on collectively Stage 2: Task Cycle Stage 1: Pre-Task Stage 3: Final Presentation
