English As a Second Language Through Music and Movement


Music is a part of all cultures and, for many, is a very important part of our lives. For this reason, music is an exceptional tool for teaching ESL. Music and movement activities in the classroom can offer a creative and beneficial break from the normal routine. They can help your students develop the primary language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. A myriad of researchers have documented the fact that music provides enjoyment and assists in the development of language skills. This course will help your students sing their way to fluent English!

The course provides the tools that teachers need to easily foster the acquisition of ESL through song lyrics and student movement. Students develop practical lesson plans with activities that can be used immediately in the classroom.
