STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

The arts have a long history in TESOL, where they’ve been used to engage students, develop creativity and deepen language learning. Drawing on a wide range of artistic traditions (drama, music, visual art, multimedia, dance, film, puppetry, poetry, storytelling, and more) and broader conceptualizations of creativity in the classroom, the Arts and Creativity PLN creates a space for TESOLers to reflect on the role of the arts in language teaching and to share teaching practices that integrate the arts and develop students’ creativity.
