Enriching Students' Linguistic Repertoires through Text-Based Guided Output Tasks
Koval, Natalie G.
CATESOL Journal, v25 n1 p95-105 2013-2014
L2 input, such as a reading text, constitutes a rich source of information on how meanings are expressed in the L2. Helping learners to use this information effectively should be one of the main goals of L2 teaching. In this article, I propose textbased guided output (TBGO) as a technique for "pushing" learners to make better use of the learning opportunities that L2 text has to offer. I make a case for the integration of TBGO into text-based ESL lessons for adults and conclude by discussing important features of design and my own experience with this type of task in teaching a group of upper-intermediate--advanced university students during 1 semester.
