Using Language-focused Learning Journals on a Task-based Course
In my oral communication classes in Japan I noticed that my students tended to neglect language form for the sake of meaning. I designed a framework for a lesson journal for students to write in during the class. The journal format mirrored the TBL sequence to help the students distinguish between the different stages of a TBL lesson. However its main aim was to draw learners’ attention to language form by encouraging them to write notes as the lesson progressed.
