Learners with positive self-efficacy have higher levels of intrinsic motivation to study, and, correspondingly, improve academic performance.
In an interview report, assess real-world implications of self-efficacy theories related to second language acquisition (SLA), bilingualism, and related pedagogy.
Step 1. Plan
Apply qualitative research best practices to plan an interview (e.g., email, face-to-face, phone, Skype, etc.) with at least one person who has a high level of literacy proficiency in both their native language(s) and second language(s).
Step 2. Design
Design interview questions based on theories of self-efficacy and SLA while paying attention to interview wording (see the Tip Sheet in the Learning Objects). Ask questions related to feelings of self-efficacy, bilingualism, and sociocultural pedagogy experienced throughout the SLA.
Step 3. Conduct
Conduct the interview according to agreed-upon parameters and schedule. Record (with interviewee’s permission) or transcribe the content.
Step 4. Analyze
Analyze the interview data and connect content to research on second language acquisition (SLA), bilingualism, and related sociocultural pedagogy. Also connect findings with exemplary curricular documents such as a syllabus, lesson plan, assessment, or other artifacts.
Step 5. Develop
Develop a 4-to 5-page interview report. Summarize your participant’s language background (including an introduction of their L1 and L2 and their proficiency levels), experience, and answers to the interview questions. Then, use second language acquisition theories to discuss how you would use this information to incorporate language learning strategies into curricular documents. Include examples, a title page, and a references page.
