Role-Playing for Inhibited Students in Paternal Communities.
Al-Saadat, Abdullah I.; Afifi, Elhami A.
Forum, v35 n3 Jul-Sep 1997
Highlights classroom role playing in Saudi Arabian classrooms as a psychological aid that fosters self-confidence in inhibited, timid, hesitant, and passive students and relieves them of their paternal communicative limitations. Proposes an overall strategy for role-playing as an effective communicative activity that teachers can exploit to help students break the ice in language classes.(Author/VWL)
