DocumentoRe-envisioning reading comprehension for english language learners a critical point of view(Pereira : Universidad Tecnológica de Pereira, 2013) Restrepo Morales, Paula Andrea ; Martínez Buitrago, ErikaWhen teaching a second language, it is important to bear in mind that the four skills: speaking, writing, listening, and reading must be facilitated and developed with the same relevance. However, some learners might tell their teacher they can understand everything he says, but they are unable to produce; or that they can understand a simple text, but when they face comprehension questions that require a critical level of understanding, they do not perform as expected. It is well known that productive skills depend on receptive skills (listening and reading) due to these serve as models for written and oral production; even though one of the most common problems teachers face with students and one of the most complex processes during teaching is oral and written comprehension, we could say that learners are more exposed to listening than to reading practice.
DocumentoRecasts and their use in second language development(Pereira : Universidad Tecnológica de Pereira, 2013) Pérez Santacoloma, Angela María ; Córdoba Soto, JavierThis essay intends to review various research articles in order to describe a general idea about what has been found supporting the use of recasts and what has been found as negative evidence about its use. Recasts are one of the most useful methodological resources to provide feedback in SLA (Gass, et al..2003, cited by Nassaji, 2009. p.2) There are some researchers which have found the relative effect of recasts over other models of feedback (Long, et al., 1998), whether recasts promote learner uptake (Lyster and Ranta, 1997), whether recasts exposes learners to positive or negative evidence (Leeman, 2003). The use of recasts has better effects than modeling, any type of input enhancement, and elicitations; nevertheless, teachers should be selective regarding the type of error to which recasts are apply; facilitator, as feedback provider, and learner as receptor, are influenced by the nature of the conversation in which they are involved. As a consequence, output production after the recasts is forced by the apprehension the learner has.
