Self-Esteem in the Foreign Language Classroom: Activities That Do More Than Teach.
Lore-Lawson, Joye
This paper provides activities and suggestions for foreign language teachers to use to enhance their students' self-esteem. Teachers should: (1) have students speak, write, and read the target language on the first day of class; (2) help students overcome test anxiety by focusing on what they did right, experimenting with different testing techniques, and allowing students to retake tests; (3) involve students in course planning; (4) teach for success by rewarding good performance; (5) teach students to set goals; (6) encourage teamwork and camaraderie by using classroom games and contests to build language skills; and (7) encourage student presentations and speeches to build self-confidence and speaking skill. General self-esteem tips for both teachers and students are also included. (MDM)
