SPAN 509 - Instructed SLA
This graduate course is designed to introduce applied linguistics students to three major areas in the second language acquisition (SLA) research literature, namely, instructed SLA (empirical efforts to investigate the effects of exposure to or instruction of the L2 on learners’ L2 development, research methodology, arguably the heart of the research design, and different approaches (quantitative and qualitative) to research.  Other key issues in this course on classroom language learning will include current theoretical SLA models and hypotheses.  A key component of the course is research apprenticeship, that is, hands-on experience in conducting a replication study of a published article in SLA.
