The Use of Folklore and Other Materials in the Motivation or Presentation of a Lesson.
Adorno, Elvira
Italica, v28 n2 p138-141 Jun 1951
Suggestions on how to improve apperception, motivation, and the presentation of materials in the teaching of Italian tenses, vocabulary, and famous names focus on the use of literary devices largely derived from folklore. For teaching tenses, the author illustrates the use of riddles, "passerotti", "filastrocche", songs, tongue-twisters, rebuses, epigrams, and mottoes. To help build vocabulary, "filastrocca", "proverbi", and "modi di dire" are prescribed. "Nomignoli", "motti", and "rime" and "riposte" are used to teach cultural materials, particularly the names of famous Italians. (RL)
