Description

Combines academic theory with tried-and-tested classroom practice to inspire practitioners to use creative arts approaches in language learning and teaching


In a world where migration is a daily reality, the ways in which affirming educational experiences can be provided for all children remain high on the agendas of schools, colleges and teachers. This book provides practical ideas for how children, young people and parents can feel welcomed and affirmed in their multilingual identities and all learners can feel intrigued and excited by the linguistic diversity of the world’s people. The book will be an invaluable resource for educational practitioners, researchers, trainee teachers, teacher educators and all who are passionate about bringing together creative arts approaches with language learning and teaching. By blending academic theory with tried-and-tested classroom practice the authors will inspire readers to adapt the featured activities for their own contexts and learners.

Maryam Almohammad is an educator in language and intercultural communication at the Institute for Language Education, the Moray House School of Education and Sport, University of Edinburgh, UK. Her research and teaching focus on interculturality, intercultural citizenship, language, identities, art, creativity and power. She draws upon ethnographic research, sociological theories of practice, art-based methods and uses critical, postmodernist and posthumanist approaches.
Jane Andrews is a Professor of Education at the Department of Education & Childhood at the University of the West of England, UK. Jane is also a joint programme leader of the Professional Doctorate in Education (EdD) and contributes to teaching on the BA (Hons) Early Childhood. Jane has research and teaching interests in languages and education and in particular children developing English as an Additional Language. Previous research projects have included Researching Multilingually at Borders, funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council and the Home-School Knowledge Exchange project, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council.
Anna Comfort is currently working as a Key Stage 1 class teacher and EAL coordinator at St. Michael’s on The Mount Primary School that lies in the heart of Bristol. She has taught a diverse range of children in inner city schools and has a real passion for working particularly with bilingual learners. In 2011, Anna took a sabbatical in India where she worked for a local charity delivering teacher training workshops designed to help train and support primary school teachers in schools in Panjim Goa. Prior to this, Anna worked as an ESOL tutor for three years teaching both refugees and asylum seekers in Leeds and Bristol.
Jean Conteh worked for more than 40 years in multilingual settings as a primary teacher, teacher-educator and researcher. She has published widely in the field for a range of audiences; her book for teachers, The EAL Teaching Book (Sage), now in its third edition, has become a standard text for schools and teacher education. For 12 years, she ran a bilingual Saturday School in Bradford with two of her former students, and she researched and wrote extensively about the children who attended, their families and their links with their mainstream schools. Now retired, she lives in Northumberland and still writes and gives the occasional talk.
Lois Francis is a qualified teacher with an MA degree in Education. She has more than 20 years of experience working in settings, s chools and local authorities in providing support for Black and Asian Minority Ethnic Pupils (BAME) including those with English as an Additional Language (EAL). The emphasis of her work is on closing the educational gap for BAME and EAL pupils. Her knowledge and expertise covers such areas as EAL pedagogy; support for African Caribbean pupils; raising attainment for Gypsy Roma and Traveller children; working with settings and schools to promote cultural diversity and to develop positive relationships with families and communities.
Luci Gorell Barnes began her professional life in the world of physical theatre but migrated to the realm of visual arts. Her work revolves around themes of childhood, isolation and belonging, and she writes, and makes books, maps and animated films to explore these ideas. Her participatory practice is concerned with those who find themselves on the margins for one reason or another, and she develops responsive processes that help people to think imaginatively with themselves and others. Her creative collaborations contribute to a range of disciplines that includes academic research, family support, health services and education.
Alison Grotzke turned her sights on a new career and a fresh challenge as a teaching assistant after being made redundant in 2012 from a financial role of 22 years. She currently works at Wheatfield Primary School in Bradley Stoke, Bristol, as a Year 1 teaching assistant and also dedicates support towards those children with EAL across the school. Her intervention focuses mainly on those who need the basics so that they can interact socially, become more independent and participate with confidence in school life. She seeks to use creativity where possible with the children, as she sells her own artwork, and finds that learners respond positively to this approach.
Alicja Lievaart , MA in Applied Linguistics and Teaching English as a Second Language, Teacher of The Deaf MA, started teaching English in Poland more than 15 years ago and is currently the English Lead at Elmfield School for Deaf Children in Bristol. Being a non-native speaker of English and having worked at various provisions including language schools, special and mainstream schools both in the UK and in Poland, she gives her a unique perspective on teaching English to EAL children. Her classroom practice based on the EAL methodology combined with a creative approach to the English curriculum has been a great success among her students.
