Creative Teaching: Using Creative Teaching Methods In A Student-Centered Esl Environment, Ivy Johnson Dec 2017

Creative Teaching: Using Creative Teaching Methods In A Student-Centered Esl Environment, Ivy Johnson

Master's Projects and Capstones

Creative teaching is a viable approach to education in the digital age. In addition, engaging students’ individual talents and abilities through a method of principled eclecticism involved in creative teaching will motivate them to learn English by engaging them as whole person (Duffy & Hoffman, 1999). All in all, what ESL students need now is not a place to acquire textbook knowledge of the English language through rote memorization, but a safe space to hash out, work with, and work through the language that involves a student centered curriculum, which relates directly to students’ lives.

Poetry Slammin’ In The Slammer: Questioning The Limits Of Arts-In-Corrections, Rivka Rocchio

Pedagogy and Theatre of the Oppressed Journal

Through the process of creating—specifically of shaping new worlds of possibility through poetry and the performance of it—the arts may offer gaps in the punishment of incarceration and attempt the reclamation or claiming of individual expression. But what are the limits of artistic expression in a highly monitored and surveilled location? This reflective essay explores a performance of slam poetry by ten inmates inside Arizona's Eyman State Prison for an audience of twenty-five prisoners. Using Keoni Watson’s winning poem as a frame, Rocchio questions the reported impacts of the slam and the larger culpability of arts-in-corrections ...
