MIIS Professor Kathleen Bailey and MIIS Alumna Mica Tucci (MATESOL ’12) published a chapter in the book Contextualising EFL for Young Learners: International Perspectives on Policy, Practice and Procedure, edited by Helen Emery & Fíodhna Gardiner-Hyland.
Bailey and Tucci’s chapter is entitled Using Songs in Teaching EFL to Young Learners and is based on their experience using songs to teach English to children. The chapter begins by dealing with the cognitive and affective reasons for getting young children to sing and dance in the language classroom. Then, the chapter discusses practical activities for using songs to teach language.
Congratulations to both Bailey and Tucci for this publication and thank you for your contribution to the profession!
