Three of the main models proposed for the role of discourse aspects in SLA are Stephen Krashen’s Comprehensible Input Hypothesis (CI), Michael Long’s Interaction Hypothesis (IH), and Merrill Swain’s Comprehensible Output Hypothesis (CO).

Models proposed for the role of discourse aspects in SLA

Question 1
Three of the main models proposed for the role of discourse aspects in SLA are Stephen Krashen’s Comprehensible Input Hypothesis (CI), Michael Long’s Interaction Hypothesis (IH), and Merrill Swain’s Comprehensible Output Hypothesis (CO). Also, Briefly illustrate the basic premises (assumptions) of these three hypotheses/models.

Next, illustrate the main pedagogical implications associated with each hypothesis.

After that, re-examine the data you obtained from the two mini sessions (11 mins and 12 mins) for your term paper with respect to whether and to what degree the instructor gave students sufficient opportunities in this online virtual learning environment for CI, Interaction and CO. Provide illustrative examples.

Finally, do you think it was possible for the instructor to do better with respect to these three types of discourse opportunities in this specific learning environment? Why, why not?

Question 2

Firstly, An important sub-field of SLA research is instruct ed second language acquisition (ISLA). Define ISLA and briefly explain its importance or significance (Note: do not explain or illustrate its characteristics like the ones explained in Loewen and Sato (2017, ch. 1)).

Next, illustrate and explain Rod Ellis’s (2005, pp. 212-214) Principle 3 in System journal: “Instruction needs to ensure that learners also focus on form” using your own words, but also you can quote from Ellis’s paper in System (2005), which you already have, or any other relevant sources.

After that, re-examine the data you obtained from the two mini sessions (11 mins and 12 mins) for your term paper with respect to whether and to what degree the instructor satisfied Ellis’s Principle 3 above, and the type of focus on form she has used in this online virtual learning environment. Finally, do you think it was possible for the instructor to do better with respect to drawing learners’ attention to form in this specific learning environment? Why, why not?
