Spanish in the Elementary Classroom: Teaching with Multiple Intelligences and Informal Drama
MetadataShow full item record
This study recommends the use of Multiple Intelligences theory and informal drama to teach Spanish at the elementary school level. The Multiple Intelligences theory looks at each student as having unique abilities and talents (intelligences) that are waiting to be discovered. To do this, informal drama activities such as actions songs, mime and pantomimes, role-playing, improvisation, simulation, and games are used in the elementary Spanish language classroom. Six detailed lesson plans are included to show how to teach Spanish in the elementary classroom with this method.
