Creativity in English Language Teaching, edited by Daniel Xerri and Odette Vassallo, ELT Council, Malta (2016)

jean-creativity-in-eltCreativity in English language Teaching is a free, downloadable ELT Council publication. In her chapter “English through art: an ELT enrichment” Jean Sciberras explores how paintings can be used as ‘launch pads’ to practise and develop various language skills and sub-skills. The chapter demonstrates that creativity in the language classroom is not limited to the gifted and talented but is something that any teacher can try to apply. The aim of this practical chapter is to provide art-based activities that stimulate language learning, although, of course, alerting students to art appreciation is a desirable by-product.
