Creativity in the Foreign Language Classroom.
Lafayette, Robert C.
Several definitions of the concept of "creativity" are examined in the introductory remarks of this article concerning foreign language instruction. Selected examples of innovational approaches to "creative" foreign language teaching are presented and underscore the belief that creative instruction resides in the ability of the instructor to produce or bring about an atmosphere where students have unlimited opportunity to create "real" language. The article concludes with a plea to teachers to personalize their instruction and thereby move toward a more creative and meaningful learning situation. (RL)
