Title :Exploring Pair Work in a Communicative Classroom
Authors :Maher, Kevin M.
Publisher :N.E.A.R. Language Education Conference
Issue Date :2011
Journal Title :NEAR conference proceedings working papers
Volume :NEAR-2011-03
Abstract :This study set out to duplicate a previous survey on student perceptions of pair work, then compare and contrast the two sets of results. There are strong pedagogical reasons as to why ESL/EFL textbooks focus on pair work. It builds fluency skills, creates collaborative learning, and assists in using and re-using key vocabulary. However, what are students’ perceptions of pair work? A previous study, (Maher, 2011) attempted to address this question with respect to university students who are enrolled in conversational English classes. This research reviewed existing literature on pair work and its strengths, then attempted the same survey with a different set of students at a different university, to see if similar results would be obtained.
