Descripción

Songs and short stories are usually attractive for children. At the same time, they can provide invaluable models in terms of language and structure, and they can be an excellent source of inspiration to practise communicative skills. Therefore, it seems that they could be a good tool to teach English in the Infant and Primary school classroom in a fun and effective way.

Taking into account this view, teachers should acquire the necessary skills to regularly use songs and short stories in their classrooms.

The aim of this course is to provide students of the Infant and Primary Teacher Training degrees with ideas to implement stories and songs in their EFL classrooms effectively. This course will also be useful for students to practise and develop their communicative skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) as well as their English in general.

METHODOLOGY

This is mainly a face to face course. Course time will be devoted to participants’ discussions, practical activities where students will experience how to use songs and short stories to teach/learn EFL, and occasional brief theoretical presentations of the key concepts. Activities will be student-centred and based on cooperative and collaborative learning.

The teaching-learning methodology will be active and dynamic, having as its main aim to create a communicative atmosphere. Thus students will be improving their competence in the English language as well as reflecting on this progress, enabling them to transfer their learning experience to their teaching practice.

Some articles with the main contents of the module will be uploaded before the face to face sessions on the platform. Students are expected to get familiar with these contents before they are presented in class.
