Introduction
by Noelia Kusznir - Wednesday, 19 April 2017, 11:15 AM
Hello everybody! My name is Noelia Kusznir. I´m 38 years old. I was born in Chaco- Argentina where I still live with my family. I´ve worked as a teacher of English since 2006 but I consider myself a learner. I felt in love with the English language many years ago and that feeling never stops.

At the moment I´m working in two different schools. At the end of the school year, all the teachers prepare a big celebration in which children present different plays which are awesome. That´s why I would love to learn techniques, strategies and anything that would help me get the most from students when acting. I think that through drama learners can not only improve their speaking skills and language in general but also they learn how to express emotions and improve their self- esteem, among many other things.

 I love travelling, practising sports and learning new things. Thus,I am so happy to start this couse with you all.

Warm regards,

                     Noelia

Drama experience
by Anita Gregoriades - Wednesday, 19 April 2017, 6:17 PM

I have never attended drama classes - in the strict sense of the word - as some of my fellow participants may have done. Nonetheless, I have always believed that drama is a powerful tool in the ELT classroom.Besides the obvious role playing activities my ss perform in class (ready made script found in ELT textbooks) I created speaking lessons leading up to role playing activities  (see an example of a speaking lesson I created on prezi     https://prezi.com/ukqx7dvms2as/wanted-wife/?webgl=0). I have also experimented with Asher's TPR (Total Physical Response method) to teach English to young learners as it enables stress free language learning conditions - with a quite few adaptations as seen in the videohttps://www.facebook.com/1715216685433958/videos/1883898871899071/ . I have also used some of Ladousse's role playing/simulation games such as picture role/plays where ss identify with different people seen on photographs, write/create their own biography and interview each other in their newly assigned identities. Students really loved these drama activities because simply... it didn't feel like having a lesson but I believe that the learning outcome was enormous as far as language building is concerned.

Anita, 

It looks like you are really interested....

I'm afraid I could not open your Prezi but yes, TPR is great, if limited, especially for young learners. many teachers ask me if TPR is the same as Drama and i always say that TPR is one tiny aspect of Drama and Drama goes much further. 

And you are right.....Sts, esp Teens who sometimes are the hardest to motivate, don't even notice they are learning or that the time is passing so fast in what used to be boring language class!

Thanks,

Susan H
