A Classroom Research Study on Oral Error Correction
Coskun, Abdullah
Online Submission, Humanising Language Teaching Magazine yr12 n3 Jun 2010
This study has the main objective to present the findings of a small-scale classroom research carried out to collect data about my spoken error correction behaviors by means of self-observation. With this study, I aimed to analyze how and which spoken errors I corrected during a specific activity in a beginner's class. I used Lyster and Ranta's (1997) model to categorize the types of spoken error correction as explicit correction, recast, clarification request, metalinguistic clues, elicitation and repetition. I realized that almost all errors were immediately treated by me and I used explicit correction more than other types of error correction. This study concludes with the idea that English teacher should get involved in such self-observation studies in order to realize their current practices in the classroom, which will help them gain the awareness that each class is a small world requiring special attention with its unique dynamics. Two appendixes are included: (1) Transcription Conventions; and (2) Transcription for Each Error. (Contains 2 tables.)
