Handbooks For Language Teachers: Concepts 7
By Ann Miller
36 p. illus.
The notion of 'creativity', now enshrined in the National Curriculum for Modern Foreign Language, may seem less important to teachers than the requirement to provide differentiated tasks and carry out assessment given that they are faced with ever-increasing and often conflicting demands on their time. Creativity offers the practicing teacher practical and imaginative suggestions which can help to make language learning enjoyable and helps pupils adapt language to deal with some unprepared situations. It covers the major areas of language learning where creativity has an important role to play, ranging from grammar to creative writing, and taking in such activities as games, situations and drama, music and songs, and visual images from the target culture.
