Format: Paperback
I enjoy using this book as it provides me with well-needed guidance to apply task-based EFL teaching to my classes of adult students. I am a recent graduate of CELTA. They emphasize trying out their ideas in class and assessing the results and getting feedback, which is important. It is a good mixture of theory and practice and gives lots of opportunity for self-reflection as well as trying things out for yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoying "Doing Task-based Teaching" 21 Mar. 2010
By L. G. Sincebaugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Doing Task-based Teaching by Dave and Jane Willis is a great book for those who are new to TBT and even for those who are more experienced with TBT as ELT teachers. Doing Task-based Teaching is well written, well thought out, clear and easy to understand unlike some of the more famous books on the market, which are used nowadays in many of the master's level TESOL degree programs. The authors really know what they are talking about as esch chapter begins with a cogent goal and overview of hat will be covered. The authors do a fine job of putting each chapter's goals into perspective both theoretically and realistically. If you are still a bit confused, as was I before I read this book, what TBT is and how it can empower your students in the classroom, this is a good book for you, which will tell you more than you initially anticipated, and perhaps desired, about TBT than you expected. This book went far beyond my expectations. The chapters I liked the best were Chapter 1, "The Basis of a Task-based Approach;" Chapter 2, "Task-based Sequences in the Classroom;" Chapter 3, "Tasks Based on Written and Spoken Texts;" Chapter 7, "The Task-based Classroom and the Real World;" Chapter 8, "Adapting and Refining Tasks: Seven Parameters;" and Chapter 10, "How to Integrate TBT into Coursebooks and other Frequently Asked Questions." The Willis's are both wise and very experienced teacher trainers in TBT and their book, "Doing Task-based Teaching" is well worth the money, shipping and waiting for the book to arrive. The authors have a nice talent for clearly explaining without over simplifying or appearing to talk down to their reading audience, which I did not feel in other, more famous and well-known tomes. Finally, this book will always have a place on my ever growing ELT and TESOL bookshelves for the sheer number of TBT tips and teaching ideas, which alone, in my informed opinion, is worth a lot on it's own merits.

I would also like to suggest that if you are relatively new to TBT, that you try reading Doing Task-based Teaching simultaneously with Teacher's Exploring Tasks in English Language Teaching, a collection of papers, edited by Corony Edwards, a tutor at the University of Birmingham's (UK) MA TESOL program and Jane Willis, who used to teach in Aston University's (UK) MsC TESOL program. I also liked this book, too, except for four statistically based papers about four teacher's in-class action research, which were not exactly pertinent to my own teaching and interests. But that was a small price to pay for another fine book, which should be reviewed separately on this site.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource 15 Jan. 2014
By Kristen Wieser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was required for my methods course in my teacher preparation program and it has been a really valuable resource. It introduces a unique perspective on the instruction of second languages, one that really differs from the way I was instructed in school. This is a great read for any teacher is aiming to implement project-based learning in the world language classroom.
