Learning and Teaching with Corpora: Reflections by Student Teachers
Breyer, Yvonne
Computer Assisted Language Learning, v22 n2 p153-172 Apr 2009
In recent years, it has become an issue of growing concern that, despite undiminished enthusiasm in the research community, the application of corpus tools and resources in the classroom remains limited. In this paper, I will argue that focusing on the role of the teacher in the process of using corpora in the classroom is an essential step towards popularising this approach. It is vital that future language teachers can discover corpora and concordances as part of their initial training from the perspectives as learner "and" as teacher. To this end, I will present and discuss a case study in which student teachers were introduced to corpus analysis and trained how to teach with corpora. Data on the reflections and opinions provided by the student teachers will highlight the significance and potential of such a course. (Contains 3 notes.)
