Using data-driven teaching methods in the classroom sometimes feels like difficult work involving a lot of preparation. The aim of the chapter “Using a concordancer to teach how to write about results” is to make it easier for teachers to introduce corpus methods into their classrooms. It suggests ways in which concordance searches can be integrated into lessons. The chapter contains a step-by-step lesson plan with detailed descriptions of concordance searches in order to facilitate the use of corpora by teachers who have limited experience of this technique. These materials can be used in English for academic purposes to help students choose appropriate words when writing the results sections of their essays and research papers.
