ABSTRACT

As a part of basic research for developing concordance materials for young EFL learners, this study explores appropriate numbers of concordance citations contained in the materials, given that secondary EFL students successfully undertake Data-Driven Learning (DDL) in the classroom. In past decades, there have been increasing demands regarding deductive DDL for language learners at low proficiency levels. However, few practical suggestions have been made how to develop the materials. This current study focuses on the importance of suitable materials for young learners and suggests guidelines for materials development in terms of citations limited to classroom activity. It followed three Korean teachers of English and 78 high school students. Students’ learning outcomes were qualitatively analyzed using DDL materials developed with different numbers of citations, and interview transcripts. Based on students’ findings and preferences, it was concluded that 12 citations were most appropriate for the classroom activity studied. Three participant teachers stated that the numbers were dependent on learning settings. The study provides practical information on appropriate numbers of citations at least required for DDL activity in the secondary classroom.
