processing instruction studies and focus on form studies
the fundamental question of how L2 learner attention can most efficiently be directed to cues in the input
How Does it Work?
Experimental Group 19
Control Group 23
Selection of the participants:The recognition test (pre-test) administered to all B level students.
60 questions in different types like; True/False, fill in the blanks, sentence completion and some production type of questions.
Different grammatical items.
Only target item questions were analyzed.
Developed by the researcher for the study.
MONOPOLYProbably the most recognized board game around the world is the game of Monopoly. In this game, players vie for wealth by buying, selling, and renting properties; the key to success in the game, in addition to a bit of luck, is for a player to acquire monopolies on clusters of properties in order to force opponents to pay exorbitant rents and fees. Although the game is now published in countless languages and versions, the beginnings of the game were considerably more humble. If it hadn’t been published in so many languages, it wouldn’t have developed so much. Because it is an international game, it is published in each country with place names appropriate to the target language. If it hadn’t been sold internationally, there wouldn’t have been foreign locations. The game was invented in 1933 by Charles Darrow, during the height of the Great Depression. Darrow, who lived in Germantown, Pennsylvania, was himself unemployed during those difficult financial times. If he hadn’t had so much free time, he wouldn’t have invented the game. He set the original game not as might be expected in his hometown of Germantown, but in Atlantic City, New Jersey. If he hadn’t walked along the Boardwalk and visited at Park Place in Atlantic City, he would have set the game in Germantown. But because Atlantic City was the site of numerous pre-Depression vacations with very positive memories, he set the game there.Darrow made the first games by hand and sold them locally. However, in 1935 Parker Brothers purchased the rights to Monopoly and took the first steps toward the mass production of today within the same year. If Parker Brothers hadn’t bought the rights of the game, it wouldn’t have been so popular today. Darrow was paid only 100 $ by the manufacturing company, but if he had expected the possible fame of the game, he would have asked much more than that.

We are able to make these kinds of interpretations depending on the mean scores of the tests. The mean score of the delayed post-test of the control group is 72,3. The mean score of the pushed output groups are 75,1.
From the pedagogical aspect, this study suggests an alternative presentation to account for the learning of a chosen linguistic item. Thus, every new item to be presented to a learner should be presented in a way to take the attention of the learner. As was stated by Doughty (2003) how to direct learners’ attention to input has just begun to be investigated in SLA. This study has investigated what Doughty has mentioned above and found out that dictogloss as a task to push the learner to produce the target form as output during the production stage directs the Turkish learners’ attention to form.
