Teaching Culture and Language through the Multiple Intelligences Film Teaching Model in the ESL/EFL Classroom
Yeh, Ellen
Journal of Effective Teaching, v14 n1 p63-79 2014
This paper will demonstrate how to enhance second language (L2) learners' linguistic and cultural competencies through the use of the Multiple Intelligences Film Teaching (MIFT) model. The paper will introduce two ideas to teachers of English as a Second/Foreign Language (ESL/EFL). First, the paper shows how L2 learners learn linguistic and cultural competencies by responding to teachers' interactional feedback. Second, the presentation presents how Multiple Intelligences (MI) activities can encourage L2 learners' motivation to acquire these competencies when responding to the interactional feedback. Third, the paper also illustrates how to construct MIFT model based on the theories of interactive feedback, noticing the gap and Multiple Intelligence. Last, examples will be presented sharing how to use the MIFT model through the incorporation of MI activities, such as reader's theater, role play, read aloud, oral presentation, task-based activity, process writing, and journal writing.
