Dersin Amacı

Based upon the idea that language teaching is not limited to teaching linguistic rules but that it includes teaching “language use”, this course aims to introduce pre-service teachers the role of (interlanguage) pragmatics in language teaching as well as to acquaint them with the procedures for obtaining and adapting samples of authentic language data reflecting pragmatic use of language for classroom purposes and for creating pragmatics-focused lesson plans.

Dersin İçeriği

Pragmatics and Language Education is an elective course which aims to equip pre-service teachers with the necessary knowledge and skills regarding the use of pragmatics in language teaching. 

More specifically, the core of this course includes (1) what pragmatics is, what having pragmatic ability means, how pragmatics is intertwined with culture, and why it is important to teach it in the L2 classroom; (2) the theoretical underpinnings for L2 pragmatics instruction for understanding L2 pragmatic use and development; (3) explicit, implicit, inductive, and deductive instruction in L2 pragmatics; (4) how to develop their learners’ pragmatic ability through increasing their noticing and attention as well as providing them output and interactional opportunities; (5) factors that might affect pragmatic ability (e.g., proficiency, age, gender, occupation, past multilingual/multicultural experiences, etc.) and common causes of learners’ divergence from pragmatic norms (e.g., negative transfer of pragmatic norms; limited grammatical ability in the L2; overgeneralization of perceived L2 pragmatic norms; effect of instruction or instructional materials); (6) technology-aided pragmatic teaching and online resources for teaching L2 pragmatics; (7) the means of obtaining and adapting samples of authentic language data reflecting pragmatic use of language, which are appropriate for classroom purposes; (8) textbook analysis for pragmatic components; (9) the role of conversation analysis and electronic corpora in the teaching of L2 pragmatics; (10) how to create pragmatics-focused lesson plans and components of a lesson plan; (11) how to assess learners’ L2 pragmatic ability (e.g., through formal tests or more informal performance tasks involving rubrics or checklists) and how to provide feedback on learners’ usage.
