Story and tale telling to connect and include more learners
€0.00
“Who am I? What should I do in life? Humans have been asking these questions for time immemorial. What kind of an answer do people expect? In almost all cases, when people ask about the meaning of life, they expect to be told a story that will explain what reality is all about and gives meaning to all my experiences and choices” - Yuval Noah Harari, 2018 Stories and tales are an essential part of being human, being a learner. They also are essential in the education and learning processes. The openness to tales and stories from different cultures, will help learners from with a migrant background, learners who come from so called minority cultures or who don’t have cultural-linguistic support at home to incorporate aspects of language, poetry and culture. The discovery that local tales of each one of us, are part of a global story can help address diversity and promote ownership of shared values, equality, gender equality social inclusion. This course helps to promote a comprehensive approach to language teaching and learning and building on the increasing linguistic diversity in schools, by encouraging creative and artistic use of language. Not always, every learner feel at ease when learning languages the traditional way. The course wants to improve the motivation of those students by offering collaborative and holistic approaches to teaching and learning. The creative practices applied to narratives have a positive effect on the self-discovery and self-esteem of the learner. This course is a challenge to the creative capacity of language, it implies (re-)discovering contact with the traditional reality seen as the common root of many cultures. Therefore, this course provides tools for voice and body language, for narrative creation and tale telling. It provides joy in the creative process and competences (skills and attitudes) that can be used in daily class practice.
