Practice, Create, Motivate: English through Drama
Date: Sunday, February 19th, 2017 Time: 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Speaker: Sue Fraser
"Drama" is not simply "acting." When employed in educational settings, Drama encompasses a wide range of activities to encourage creativity, interaction, confidence-building, and communication skills and strategies; thus motivating learners to become involved and express themselves. Drama in FLT has diverse uses for grammatical and phonological practice, developing presentation skills and overall fluency, and encouraging critical thinking and intercultural awareness.
In this workshop, a range of activity types involving Drama, adaptable to various FLT classroom contexts, will be experienced and analysed: from one-off warmers, to ideas for textbook adaptation, to creative performance projects. Active participation is expected!
Dr. Sue Fraser teaches at Seisen Jogakuin College, Shinshu University, and Nagano National College of Technology (Kosen), and tutors on Birmingham University's distance-learning M.A. in Applied Linguistics/TESOL. She has applied her life-long performing and academic involvement in Theatre and Drama to EFL teaching, teacher training and materials writing. She has published on varieties of spoken English, Drama and learner autonomy, spoken and written fluency, and L2 learning motivation, and co-authors various Japanese university entrance exam preparation textbooks.
