Workshop description
Using songs in class is a powerful tool to help students learn English. Songs are a great source of authentic language. They can help bridge the gap between classroom English and “real world” English. They can help promote a relaxed, stress-free atmosphere in the classroom, which makes students learn without realizing they are learning.
By selecting song segments that present specific grammar points or highlight vocabulary and having students sing them, teachers work on repetition of the target structures in a fun and very effective way.
In this hands-on workshop you will learn several activities that can be done using songs to teach grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. I’m going to show you how you can find songs with specific grammar points and suggest and try some activities that can be created based on the songs.
Because students don’t always like the same kind of songs the teacher does, teachers can encourage them to find songs that they like that contain the target structures. I’m going to show you how to do that, too.
This is a very active workshop! You’ll sing and dance along as you are exposed to different ways of using songs in a way that is both educational and original.
At the end of the workshop, you will have a repertoire of activities that you can use in your next classes and you’ll also be able to develop your own activities.
