Motivation, Communication, and Affect: Facilitating English Language Growth Through the Use of Fantasy.
Findley, Charles A.; Fasten, Lynn A.
This paper considers three critical areas in language learning--motivation, communication and affect--and then presents a teaching methodology that is compatible with the pedagogical principles derived from the theoretical discussion. While presenting the structure of the "fantasy" methodology, attention is given to classroom applications to facilitate positive affect and communication in the classroom, both of which serve as motivation which furthers the ends of humanistic education and language learning. Sample lessons which outline fantasies for classroom use are appended to the text. (Author/AM)
