Second language development in writing: Measures of fluency, accuracy, and complexity
Print

Description

In this book, the authors analyze and compare the ways that fluency, accuracy, grammatical complexity, and lexical complexity have been measured in studies of language development in second language writing. More than 100 developmental measures are examined, with detailed comparisons of the results across the studies that have used each measure. The authors discuss the theoretical foundations for each type of developmental measure, and they consider the relationship between developmental measures and various types of proficiency measures. They also examine criteria for determining which developmental measures are the most successful, and they suggest which measures are the most promising for continuing work on language development.

Research methods in interlanguage pragmatics
Print

Description

This technical report reviews the methods of data collection employed in 39 studies of interlanguage pragmatics, defined narrowly as the investigation of nonnative speakers' comprehension and production of speech acts, and the acquisition of L2-related speech act knowledge. Data collection instruments are distinguished according to the degree to which they constrain informants' responses, and whether they tap speech act perception/comprehension or production. A main focus of discussion is the validity of different types of data, in particular their adequacy to approximate authentic performance of linguistic action.

Workshop
OER Hangout: Joining a teaching community

In this discussion-based webinar, you will have the chance to talk with three educators who manage or are involved with teacher professional learning communities: Meredith White (#langchat), Oscar Joya (COERLL's Heritage Spanish community), and Una Daly (Community College Consortium for OER). There will be 20 minutes of presentation time where you will hear about how their communities started and evolved, how people communicate and collaborate within the community, and how you can get involved in these communities or start your own. The rest of the hour is for you to ask questions, talk to presenters, and share information about your own communities.

Workshop
LaTeS: Genre Matters in Contextualized World Language

Genre Matters in Contextualized World Language Learning Francis John Troyan (Ohio State University) This workshop introduces participants to a genre theory and pedagogy that views spoken and written texts as genres that can be made visible and systematically taught to students. Participants will learn how to integrate genre into a backward design approach for the assessment and instruction of language that is centered on the development of the learner’s ability to communicate in written and spoken genres. Francis John Troyan, Assistant Professor of World Language Education at The Ohio State University, specializes in world language teacher development, genre and functional linguistics in K-12 world language education, and teacher practices in dual language immersion education. —————————— CERCLL’s biannual Language Teacher Symposium (LaTeS) is a professional development opportunity geared towards K12 educators. Registration is free. A certificate for Arizona Continuing Education is provided.

All LRCs
Previous LRC
Next LRC
In 1990, the Department of Education established the first Language Resource Centers (LRCs) at U.S. universities in response to the growing national need for expertise and competence in foreign languages. Now, twenty-five years later, Title VI of the Higher Education Act supports sixteen LRCs, creating a national network of resources to promote and improve the teaching and learning of foreign languages.

LRCs create language learning and teaching materials, offer professional development opportunities for language instructors, and conduct and disseminate research on foreign language learning. All LRCs engage in efforts that enable U.S. citizens to better work, serve, and lead.

8 Areas of Focus

Each LRC has a unique story and mission, but all LRC work is organized around eight basic areas:
  • Research
  • Teaching materials
  • Digital tools and resources
  • Assessment
  • Professional development
  • Less commonly taught languages initiatives
  • K-12 initiatives
  • Outreach and dissemination

You may also contact each LRC individually by locating their directory information in the Meet the LRCs menu.
