Evidence-Based Language Practice
Pollock, Eric J.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the English Department Faculty Meeting at Kyung Hee University (Seoul, South Korea, Mar 12, 2005)
The purpose of this paper was to examine evidence-based procedures in medicine and to demonstrate that the same protocols can be used in English language instruction. In the evidence-based methodology, studies are divided into those that address specific language problems. Integrated studies are presented as a systematic overview, meta-analysis, economic evaluation, guideline, or a decision analysis. A review of evidence-based medicine methodologies was conducted and a blueprint was constructed using identical criteria. Frameworks from Black, 1998, and from Strauss, 1998, were used as the starting foundation for the framework for evidence-based language instruction. Evidence-based practice is proposed as a simple, standardized process for a critical analysis of the research literature and application to language educational uses. Evidence-based practice allows the teacher to provide instruction based on the most recent and valid research literature. It is a simple, standardized procedure for critical analysis of the literature and application to practice that builds on and enhances classroom expertise. (Contains 6 boxes.)
