  6. 6. Quotations from Principles of Effective Materials Development • Tan(2020b:5-6) stresses how corpus-based materials can achieve the important criterion of providing real contextualised examples of written and spoken language. • Tomlinson(2003c) In the process of developing materials for specified target learners, the universal criteria need to be combined with the local criteria derived from what is known about the learners, their teachers, and their context of learning. • (Krasen 1985, 1993,1999; Long 1985) A prerequisite for language acquistion is that the learners are exposed to a rich, meaningful, and comprehensible input of language in use. • (Arnold 1999; Tomlison 1998b, 1998d) In order for the learners to maximine their exposure to language in use, they need to be engaged both effectively and cognitively in the language experience.
  7. 7. Quotations from Principles of Effective Materials Development • (Tomlinson 2007a) The teaching should be designed to help learners to achieve language development and not just language acquisition. • (McKay 1992; Tomlinson 2006) The teacher needs to be able to personalize and localize the materials and to relate them in different ways to the needs, wants, and learning-style preferences of individual learners. • (Arnold 1999; Tomlinson 1998d) Language learners who achieve positive affects are much more likely to achieve communicative competence than those who do not. • (Tomlinson 2009) There are still gaps between what we do and what we know and between what we know and what we « tell » our learne • rs.
  8. 8. Quotations from Priorities for Evaluating Instructional Materials: Research Update • According to Mestre, teachers tend to fall into the trap of « teaching to the test », and students learn hot to « get the right answer ». This means that instructional time is spent learning « a collection of definitions and isolated bits of information » rather than how to analyze and use knowledge for solving problems(p.9). • Teachers make a difference in student learning and materials with effective learning startegies can support or impede their impact. • Once learned, it is hard to « unlearn » • Students decrease effort when learning tasks seem too easy or impossibly difficult. • Instructional materials must include guidance and support to help students safety and successfully become more independent learners and thinkers.
