Performing arts approaches in language teaching
Omskakas is a handbook for language teachers, with exercises based on drama-focused working methods for cooperative language lessons. Unga Teater organises training for language teachers on how to practically apply the Omskakas exercises in the classroom.
“Omskakas shakes the conventions of the traditional language classroom, offering a variety of clearly instructed exercises to support language teaching and acquisition. In addition, the book explores the theoretical justifications for harnessing performing arts approaches in language teaching. Besides Finnish and Swedish, the exercises can easily be modified to be used to teach any language.”
