Spoken language is like music in a lot of ways. In my workshops on this topic, I've given participants a chance to learn how to incorporate melody, rhythm and movement into listening-speaking lessons. I've demonstrated activities to scaffold elements of speech, capture the hidden prosodic elements of stress, intonation, and rhythm, and enable learners to attain the music of English. Clicking the image below will lead you to slides that tell a part of the story. Doing the physical activities during the workshop, participants engage their visual, auditory, and kinesthetic modalities. After all, learning by doing is more effective than learning solely by watching or by listening to an explanation. I must say that the 90-minute workshop in October at the CATESOL conference in San Diego afforded time for more activities and greater participation than the 45-minute session in March at the TESOL conference in Dallas.
