    Practical creativity : activities and ideas for your language classroom

     Practical Creativity: Activities and Ideas for Your Language Classroom supplies world language, dual language, and English as a second language educators with a research-based model for using creativity to support language acquisition in the classroom. The book includes innovative learning exercises and teaching guidelines that are based on research of the cognitive and sociocultural aspects of creativity and learning. Part I of the text helps instructors understand the role of creativity in language learning and teaching. The chapters outline the characteristics of creativity, ways to nurture inherent creative potential, divergent and convergent thinking skills, and creative challenges that can connect language and play in the classroom. Part II helps educators apply theory to practice by teaching them how to employ creative, multimodal learning experiences for their students. The chapters examine various strategies and specific activities to integrate multiple modes into the classroom. Examples include the use of gestural language to enrich spoken messages, the use of digital media in the classrooms, and the introduction of tactile materials to bolster learning. Featuring research, theory, creative challenges, and suggested multimodal activities, Practical Creativity is an ideal text for language educators who wish to revitalize their classroom with creativity-inspired lessons.

  • Innovative practices in language teacher education

    Innovative practices in language teacher education

     This volume addresses innovations in language teacher education, offering a diversity of personal/psychological perspectives and topics in the theory and/or practice in language teacher education. The text deals with innovations in teaching for learning, teacher autonomy, dynamic self-reflection, peace education, professionalism, action research, socio-emotional intelligence, embodiment, professional development, NeuroELT, and more. Organized in three sections, the chapters inspire readers to reflect upon what it means to grow as a teacher as they navigate the intra- to inter-personal continuum. The editors draw the main themes together and discuss them in light of an innovations framework developed by Rogers (including relative advantage, compatibility, complexity, trialability and observability) in order to express, in concrete terms, the ways in which each idea can be considered innovative. Throughout the anthology, the reader will find specific, novel ways in which to work towards good practice in language teacher education.

  • Les langues : quel avenir?

    Les langues : quel avenir?

     Les langues n’échappent pas à la mondialisation. Certaines sont de plus en plus parlées, d’autres de moins en moins. Selon les lieux, les nécessités, les besoins et les politiques, les individus recherchent celles qui leur sont le plus utile ou le plus profitable : ainsi, le « marché aux langues » n’est pas le même à Dakar, à Hong-Kong, à Barcelone ou à São Paulo. Mais alors, quelles chances peut avoir une langue de subsister sur ce marché, quels risques a-t-elle d’en disparaître ? Cet ouvrage original, nourri d’exemples concrets, jette les bases d’une « politologie linguistique » qui permet de lire la mondialisation à travers son versant linguistique, d’élaborer des hypothèses sur l’évolution de cette situation et d’en explorer les modes possibles de gestion, afin, éventuellement, d’influer sur le sort des langues.

  • Oier

    Oier

     Mundura begira bizi da Oier, baina ama gaixotzen zaionean bere barrura begiratu beharko du halabeharrez. Ustez sendoak ziren ideietan arrakala txiki batzuk irekiko zaizkio, eta emozioek dardarka jarriko dute bere izateko moduaren eraikuntza osoa. Jakiteak eta ulertzeak bizitzako gertaera batzuk konpondu ezin dituztenean, bizitzan aurrera egiteaz eta kolpeei aurre egiteaz dihardu eleberri honek. Oierren barne-bidaia honetan beste tripulatzaile bat gehiago izango da irakurlea, eta ontzi berean joango da beste pertsonaiekin batera, hemen ere lagun izango dituelarik Maren, Libe eta Ane, Txandaka bildumako beste liburuetan bezala.

  • Migel Marmolen hamaika eta bat jaiotzak

    Migel Marmolen hamaika eta bat jaiotzak

    Ilopangoko familia txiro bateko seme txikiena izanik, Migeltxok artopil zopa janez zaildu behar izan zuen sabela titiko haurra zela. Zapatari-ofizioa ikasi zuen gaztetan, baita sindikatuak eta langile-federakuntzak antolatzen ere. Horrela, 1930ean, El Salvadorreko Alderdi Komunista eratu zuen beste kide batzuekin. Urte hartan bertan SESBera bidaiatu zuen sobiertar iraultza bertatik bertara ezagutzeko. Handik itzuli ostean Martinez jenerala buru zuen gobernu totalitarioaren aurka jardun zuen 1932ko indigena eta langileen matxinadaren antolakuntzan Farabundo Marti, Feliciano Ama, Chico Sanchez eta beste hainbat burkideren ondoan. Migel atxilotu eta fusilatu egin zuten gainerako burkideak eta beste milaka indigena bezala. Eta aihotzaz eman zioten azkena. Ustez. Migelek ez baitzuen mundu hau uzteko asmorik, aurre egin zion heriotzaren diktadurari ere. Harrezkero, mehatxatua, atxilotua nahiz torturatua, ez zion justizia sozialaren alde borrokatzeari utzi. El Salvadorren zein Guatemalan, langile taldeak suspertu eta antolatu zituen. Hamaika bider agertu zitzaion heriotza, eta hamaika bider egin zion ezetz. Migeltxoren bizitza XX. mendeko El Salvadorreko historia zauritua josteko haria da. Komikiaren booktrailerra.
