Artes e imaginacion en la ensenanza-apprendizaje de ingles (The Arts and Imagination in the Teaching and Learning of English).
Zoreda, Margaret Lee
This paper reflects on the need to include the arts in the teaching of English as a Foreign Language, thus strengthening the students' imagination. The article begins by defining the concepts of "the arts, "imagination," and "emotion." It goes on to examine the perspectives and claims of studies from different disciplines on these concepts and their ensuing interrelationships. Based on these observations, the paper discusses how the arts and the use of imagination can contribute to intercultural understanding. Finally, the article ends by reflecting on the possible impact of including the arts in English language programs and by posing the question, "Exactly how can the arts widen your horizon?" (SM)
