Transcript

  • 1. The Implementation of Collaborative Study Groups as a Mechanism to Enhance and Promote Metacognitive Processes in Pronunciation Courses Claudia Cárdenas
  • 2. REFLECTION MODE
  • 3. Fossilized mispronunciations?
  • 4. Challenging issues
  • 5. “Pronunciation has been swept under the carpet” (Brown, 1991) Communication breakdowns start to appear when non-native speakers fall below the threshold in pronunciation (CelceeMurcia, Brinton and Goodwin, 1996)
  • 6. Project targets
  • 7. Experts’ view
  • 8. LEARNING PRONUNCIATION STRATEGIES Deliberate actions and thoughts that are consciously employed, often in logical sequence, for learning and gaining greater control over the use of various aspects of pronunciation (Pawlak , 2010).
  • 9. • More detailed and systematic listening, a critical process that provides an opportunity for learners to focus on their L2 production at the segment, syllable, word, phrase level. (Ingels, 2011)
  • 10. • Transcription may be completed by the learner or the teacher, and learners may transcribe their own speech or that of NSs. (Clennell, 1999).
  • 11. • Learners review their peer’s transcripts, looking for nontarget features, and annotate (mark) corrections directly on the transcript in a contrasting color. During this transcript correction process, learners refer to a checklist to remind them of the pronunciation features they should monitor.
  • 12. • Practice has been cited as an effective strategy and one of the more frequently used (Chamot & Kupper, 1989; Cohen et al., 1995; W. B. Dickerson, 1989; Sardegna, 2009).
  • 13. Research design
  • 14. Burns (2010), selfreflective, critical and systematic approach Questioning and problematising
  • 15. Pronunciation struggles
  • 16. Phonological awareness and application of monitoring strategies Por lo menos ahora cuando cometo un error ya me doy cuenta y soy capaz de autocorregirme Yo pensaba que yo no cometía errores, pero con los ejercicios me doy cuenta que tengo problemas constantes en la pronunciación de las vocales
  • 17. Strengthening of pedagogical abilities Descubrí que soy paciente para explicarles a mis compañeros y que me gusta enseñar
  • 18. Students’ proficiency level related to the error analysis scope Segmental feautures Suprasegmental feautures
  • 19. Collaborative learning enhances pronunciation awareness Como el grupo es pequeño, no me da vergüenza equivocarme y me gusta porque entre todos nos corregimos... sabemos que todos estamos aprendiendo, aunque algunos saben mas que otros
  • 20. Additional gaining in the project • Me beneficio mucho en el listening… me ayudó demasiado porque como cada semana tenía que hacer seguimiento del proceso, entonces tenía que corregir la pronunciación del compañero y como no sabía pronunciar algunas palabras entonces comparaba la pronunciación del diccionario con la del compañero entonces yo aprendí mucho también en la parte de listening.
  • 21. Conclusions & Implications • Instruction on the use of learning strategies: mandatory in any field. Proved effective and students can be self directed in their learning process • Autonomy and collaborative learning need to be promoted in EFL scenarios. • Reflective teaching enhances the quality of learning opportunities. • Constant reflection on own and others’ academic processes might have an impact on learning. • Empower learners with strategies to take control of their own process.
