This course offers an insight into how best to select and adapt authentic materials to use with students as a way of exposing them to other cultures and ways of thinking. It has been shown that authentic materials are more motivating for students (Peacock, 1997) and thus the class will feature practical demonstrations of ways in which authentic materials can be used to help motivate students.
In the class, participants will look at, observe and demonstrate tasks which utilise authentic materials and participants will also have the chance to a adapt materials and design their own tasks in a hands-on workshop.

    "1": "Don’t forget to setup the video camera to record the sessions ?\r\rWow them in early with a super quick-fire demo of the things my students have done. ",

    "2": "After explaining who I am and what I’ve done, go through the overview for the first session and explain how this forms the basis of all 4 sessions. \r\rThings to mention about self – written several articles about the subject, one in MET which I will make available online. My eLearning Consultancy and my Teacher Training Credentials plus about to start a PhD in authentic materials. \r\rExplain one of our main focuses will be how to make the difficult language of authentic (ie. Unadpted for learners) materials accessible. Dealing with Difficulty and coping strategies. ",

    "3": "Contextualise this to your own needs to ask questions and work in groups – do a quick needs analysis here – high school, uni and primary school ss. ",

    "6": "Do as a task – see if they can spot it. Explain Authentic is a loaded term – it has good connotations in the name, so to be told you are not authentic is an insult. ",

    "9": "VITAL – Have them plot something as a graph on here and explain it as an example – ask them what the benefit is of doing this. ",

    "10": "宣言的知識 = Sengen-teki chishiki (declarative knowledge)\r\rThis is the last slide of this section. ",

    "12": "Refer to the handout and ask ptps to rate each one according to which they find most authentic. \r\rHandout is on page 2",

    "14": "Autonomy is ability to self-select aspects of the learning situation, hence compulsory courses are inherently amotivtiong. So too are overly prescriptive courses or text books. \r\rSo, do we throw out the text book? No, but leave room for adaptation. Learn and utilise personalisation/relevancy strategies. Esp focus!\r\rWS – why is autonomy good, what are the benefits of this?\r\rInterest in the theory and practice of autonomy in language teaching and learning has grown remarkably in recent years. This lecture begins with a definition of autonomy and then goes on to look at the benefits of being autonomous. It also talks about the issue of culture within autonomy and concludes by discussing possible ways students can become more autonomous themselves.\rAdapted from an article by Philip Benson (2007) – ‘Autonomy in language teaching and learning’ Language Teaching Journal\r",

    "15": "Also ask which they think are more motivating?",

    "16": "The hypothesis is basically that if the teacher is motivated so will the students be. One way to improve teacher motivation is to use authentic materials or materials which the teacher is interested in. This will hopefully (but now always) feed back into the students. ",

    "19": "What is this person’s motivation for paddling?\r2 forces at work. Originally, this person had own reason to paddle, - intrinsic. Then, they saw the shark and an external force started acting on them – extrinsic.",

    "20": "\rDo you agree that motivated students are more succesful than unmotivated students?\r\rSo, is it our job to motivate students?\r\rDornyei & Csizer 1998 Dorn (mot strat pp 31-2)\rChambers 1999",

    "21": "In reality, which factor is stronger with our students?\r\rExtrinisc\r\rRef?\r\rSee Dornyei 2001",

    "23": "Self-Det = reaction against research showing extrin opposes intrins. Both can work together and even combine or replace",

    "24": "Integrqtive and instrumental and ref better expl… \r\rRelatedness = social aspect. Relate to other people, but also could be authentic – reflect real use",

    "25": "Authenticity = relevance. Differenty types of relevance to different aspects – learning aims, personal interest, student , teacher. ",

    "26": "Basically sum up that studies have proven that both authentic materials contribute to motivation and also that autonomy is important in motivation (this applies also to the teacher).\r\rPerhaps ask if they have much autonomy in their work? If not, talk about the power of adapting materials, and also novel approaches to training – main issue will be preparing for student exams. \r\rAuthenticity + Autonomy (T & S) \r= Motivation (T & S)\r\rDo you agree with this equation?\r",

    "28": "Ask for a definition of Authenticity. \r\rExplain that it is useful to consider authenticity from the two viewpoints of texts and tasks",

    "31": "Ask this to the groups, have feedback from them. \r\rThen, put up the bulleted questions \r\rIntroduce the idea that authenticity might not be necessarily related to native speakers. Show a video of World English indian speaker from youtube http://youtu.be/sz60jgM6Lrk on next slide.",

    "37": "Indian and Geordie\rRate each in terms of comprehensibility. Usually, the L1 comes lower. Geordie is fully comprehensible to that speech community, the key is to find mutual intelligibility. ",

    "38": "Handsome linguists joke. All the best linguists have big beards. Maybe I should grow one. Hand up if you think I should grow one",

    "42": "Add something from Watanabe ref. ",

    "43": "Are newspapers authentic. From Native speaker realm? \r\rAre these authentic texts? No\r\rNo relevancy. ",

    "44": "What is def of authenticity?",

    "46": "It is inevitable that when we use authentic texts there will be words and grammar that our students might find difficult. \rThis will decrease the more they are exposed to natural language sources\rIt will also help them to learn coping strategies\rOne such method is what I call the panacea method. ",

    "47": "Go through the steps of the animation – 5 click",

    "49": "Quick demo of Flesch-Kinkaid readability score – make sure it is on the handout too. Could also mention ZPD or Krashen Level+1\r\rAlso, ensure that participants understand that engagement refers also to their own level of engagement. \r\rRefer to handout\r\rQuestions to help you select materials\r\rDo I (the teacher) find this content stimulating?\rWill my learners find this interesting?\rIs it suitable for my learners (difficulty, age)?\rHow does it fit in with the other work we are doing in class?\rWill this be useful to them?\r\r\r",

    "50": "We will be using this model in a moment complete the workshop tasks. \r",

    "55": "Some of the materials don’t even have any words at all, so the ‘authentic’ part comes from the interaction between the students and the language they produce. Therefore it is essential they speak english, so make someone the milk monitor. \r\rGroups of 4.4 (5 groups of 4, 4 groups of 4) = 8 groups in total.\r\rGive each one a different authentic material to work with and plan a lesson or adapt. Perhaps not a bad idea to use some from the assessment. \r\rBbc words in news japan garbage island\rMick and Keith – short story\rCBBC – Egypt pm on trial\rReal or fake images\rVideo – inconvenient truth (woksheet plus explain)\rAdventure hols\rSaved by the rats\rWind Power\r\rSomething for all ages and levels",

    "56": "Need to be html links and better variety",

    "60": "Mention Face validity",

    "61": "Ptps will ",

    "63": "Each one should branch to a demo – each demo is supported by a list of links and ideas on the handout with screens and perhaps worksheets which I’ve made.\r\rAfter each one, have participants discuss to what extent they could employ these in their own classes and encourage questions from the floor. ",

    "68": "TED is the best thing since sliced bread!\r\r",

    "70": "Download goes to webquests.org\rMake your own goes to D-Volver – don’t bother clicking as it is in Multimedia section.",

    "73": "Explain there is only pass or fail mark, ensure they know that the plan should be like the ones they make for their own classes. Not too much detail. "

    • 1. USING AND ADAPTING AUTHENTIC MATERIALS TO HELP MOTIVATE STUDENTS Richard Pinner rpinner@sophia.ac.jp
    • 2. Overview Assessment Multimedia Resources Workshop Text Resources Workshop Methodological Approaches Overview & Definition of Authenticity
    • 3. Aims Examine how best to select and adapt authentic materials to use with students as a way of exposing them to other cultures and ways of thinking. To look at, observe and demonstrate tasks which utilise authentic materials. Participants will adapt materials and design their own tasks.
    • 4. OVERVIEW & DEFINITION OF AUTHENTICITY Research background and issues
    • 5. What is authenticity?
    • 6. Fake
    • 7. Gilmore (2007) 8 ‘inter-related’ definitions 1. “the language produced by native speakers for native speakers in a particular language community 2. the language produced by a real speaker/writer for a real audience, conveying a real message 3. the qualities bestowed on a text by the receiver, in that it is not seen as something inherent in a text itself, but is imparted on it by the reader/listener) 4. the interaction between students and teachers and is a ‘personal process of engagement’ 5. the types of task chosen 6. the social situation of the classroom 7. assessment 8. culture, and the ability to behave or think like a target language group in order to be recognized and validated by them” From Gilmore (2007: 98)
    • 8. What is authenticity? Native Real Self Classroom Task Social Assessment Culture
    • 9. The Authenticity Continuum
    • 10. Useful Definition Authentic materials are ‘designed not to transmit declarative knowledge about the target language but rather to provide an experience of the language in use.’ (Tomlinson & Masuhara, 2010: 400) “
    • 11. Domains of Authenticity authentic text / materials output / production tasks language in use
    • 12. Authentic Tasks – Example A: The teacher brings an English language newspaper to class and has students read the text and underline every instance of the present perfect aspect or passive tense, and then ask them to copy them all out into their notebooks. – Example B: The teacher uses an ‘inauthentic’ text from a published course book which was contrived specifically to practise reported speech and then discuss other ways in which the speakers from the text could have said the same thing using different language. – Example C: The teacher asks students to use the internet to research about their favourite celebrity or hero and then create a short presentation in English to the rest of the class about that person. • Unlike Texts, Authentic Tasks can come from any source.
    • 13. Do you agree with this equation? Authenticity Motivation
    • 14. What is Autonomy? [Autonomy is] the ability to take charge of one’s own learning. Holec (1979: 3) “
    • 15. Show of hands Which do you find more motivating – materials from a course book or materials you have selected or created yourself?
    • 16. The relationship between student and teacher motivation can be either positively or negatively synergistic. Deci et al (1997: 68) “
    • 17. Teacher Motivation Student Motivation
    • 18. Teacher Motivation Student Motivation
    • 19. What is Motivation? • Basically it’s why people do things. • For language learning it is often cited as the reason students are successful (or not). • One of the main factors contributing to motivation has been repeatedly shown to be….. • ….the teacher. (Dörnyei & Csizér, 1998 ; Chambers, 1999)
    • 20. Extrinsic Intrinsic
    • 21. Intrinsic Extrinsic
    • 22. Self-Determination Theory Deci & Ryan (1985) Integrative Instrumental
    • 23. People are more self-determined if.. Autonomy Competence Relatedness
    • 24. Relatedness Relevance Authenticity
    • 25. There is a strong theoretical link Authenticity Motivation
    • 26. What is Authenticity?
    • 27. Authenticity • Texts • Tasks
    • 28. PART 2 - METHODOLOGY A Theoretical Framework for adapting authentic materials
    • 29. Authenticity
    • 30. What are Authentic Texts? • Does authenticity come only from native or L1 speakers of English? • Can something be authentic if it was produced by learners rather than native speakers? • If English is the world’s second language, what are authentic examples of English?
    • 31. British and American
    • 32. Indian
    • 33. Singaporean
    • 34. Korean
    • 35. Geordie
    • 36. Which English is More Authentic?
    • 37. Native speakers may feel the language 'belongs' to them, but it will be those who speak English as a second or foreign language who will determine its world future. David Graddol, The Future of English 1997 “
    • 38. Kachru (1985) Inner circle Outer circle Expanding circle
    • 39. Graddol’s (1997) Three Circles of English Overlapping
    • 40. Is World English Authentic? • What variety of English do you hope to teach your learners?
    • 41. Washback • How do exams affect your decision of what to teach in class? • Is there any way for you to combine authenticity and still prepare your students for their assessments? Cheng & Watanabe (2004)
    • 42. Authentic texts?
    • 43. Are authentic materials too confusing?
    • 44. What can you do to help students deal with authentic texts?
    • 45. Dealing with difficulty • Get them used to authentic materials • Coping Strategies – Panacea Method
    • 46. Nanotechnology is not a for the problems faced by modern medicine, but it can help overcome some of the difficulties. panacea Problems Difficulties ≠ Solutions Answers Cure solution
    • 47. Considerations for choosing materials
    • 48. Context of Learners Choosing appropriate materials – what factors should you consider? – Age – Language difficulty (Flesch-Kinkaid) – Engagement / relevance – Sensitive issues
    • 49. Adapting Materials Comprehension Form Focused (vocabulary and grammar). This should be dealt with in as interactive a way as possible – eg. Students could simply match up the numbers 1 -6 with a – e or they could check the words in a dictionary and teach them to their partners. Engagement Once the main ideas of the materials are clear and students have been given time to prepare and understand, have them interact in a personal (authentic) way with the text/material. Eg. Asking opinions, debating, responding etc. Reflection The students should be given a chance to reflect on the skills/language that they have used and the purpose this has in their own learning. In other words, Autonomy training.
