Making your tasks truly ‘tasky’ – on getting meaning and form to go in one direction

We can’t but admit that in-class production differs from real-life speaking in many ways. Inevitably formal in character, classroom environment has both strengths and weaknesses. The trend towards ‘the more authentic – the better’ has had its reflection in home recording, life listening, real-plays, to name but a few.

During the session we are going to consider whether everything we do in class is a ‘task’ in the technical sense of the term. We’ll debate the characteristics of effective classroom tasks as well as reflect on the ways of adding real world application to various classroom activities.
