Chapter 11: Task-Based Language Teaching Lends itself naturally to a cooperative approach to L2 learning. o Students work in groups to accomplish an assigned task; hence, they are required to work together and practice various linguistic and social skills. Among the most popular applications of task‐based instruction are culturally related tasks: for example: If you’re teaching a unit about American customs of celebrating Christmas (or Hanukah or Kwanza or all of the above), o One group can be assigned the task of decorating the classroom, o Another could be put in charge of entertainment (e. g., writing a Christmas skit or teaching the class Christmas songs), o While another could be responsible for preparing traditional refreshments. Similar cultural‐related tasks can be assigned for all major holidays, including purely secular ones, such as the Fourth of July. Other tasks suitable for this approach include the creation of an English‐room enterprise, with various groups (or a group of the whole) planning the nature of the business, sources for merchandise or marketable skills, price scale for merchandise/services, and the possible uses for whatever funds the class succeeds in raising through its entrepreneurial endeavors, for example: o Contributing to charity o Or a school fund, throwing a pizza party for the class o Or whatever else seems appropriate. Community‐service projects offer another set of options for task‐based TESL. Just use your imagination, and encourage your students to use theirs.
