Using Theater Concepts in the TESOL Classroom
Badie, Gina Tiffany
CATESOL Journal, v26 n1 p23-28 2014
This article discusses practical ways to incorporate theater concepts into the ESL classroom. The notion of a theater ensemble lends itself well to group work in language learning. I have used my experience auditioning, participating in theater games, and improv techniques to encourage second language learning through public speaking, group collaboration, and giving students the power to speak.
