Theoretical framework for Materials Development

Needs analysis

Research question: How do first grade students develop their listening skill through
short stories at Colombus American School?

Context: Colombus American School.

Theoretical framework:
Nuez at al, 2009, presents a series of 8 components for materials development. 1. Needs
assessment 2. Approach and design 3. Goals and objectives 4. Building the syllabus 5.
Creating or adapting materiasl. 6. Revising and evaluating. 7. Piloting 8. Adjusting.

Second language acquisition principles: (Tomlinson, 1998)

Achieve impact through novelty, variety, attractive presentation and

appealing content.

Help learners to feel ease: students learn in shorter time and being relaxed


Draw learners conscious and unconscious attention to linguistic features.

Provide opportunities for communicative purposes.

Take into account students different learning styles

Allows for a silent period

Learning strategies Approach: explicit: learners are aware of what and where they are
learning. (Tomlinson, 2011)

Vision of language: functional: language that we use to perform various functions

(expressing likes and dislikes) (Tudor, 2001)

Theory of language learning:


The role of affect: The interaction of students with learning activities is shaped by
cognitive, psychological and experiential factors that generate affective interaction

with the learning process (Tudor, 2011)

Language teaching: indirect: it helps learners to discover thing for themselves.

(Tomlinson, 2011)

Language learning approach: Muti-dimensional approach: aims learners to develop the

ability to produce and process an L2 by using their mental resources in ways similar to
those they use when communicating in L1 (Tomlinson, 2000)

Innovation: At Colombus American School, a research based on English skills has

never been developed. In this case this innovation will help students and teachers to
address their need and try to find the correct path to overcome those.
