OUR DRAMA FOR GRAMMAR TEACHING approach
Teaching of English as a foreign and a second language has been done separately from Literature in the past. We consider role play, theater arts and every form of interaction among learners as the best way to improve language acquisition. Our method is a blend of English language and literature lessons. The drama for grammar method highlights grammar points in the play as the acts and scenes unfold. Visibility is given to structure: SUBJECT-VERB-COMPLEMENT, parts of speech or word class: determiners, adjectives,nouns, pronouns, verbs, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, as the plot of the play unfolds. We call this type of play: A LANGUAGE LAB PLAY. # PLASTOSPHERE above is an example. Let’s use the conversations of the characters to crack the English Grammar puzzle.
