About this presentation:
The art of language immersion: Teaching as theatrical production
What do theater and language immersion have in common? We look briefly at how worlds of empathy/understanding are created onstage in theatrical contexts and how understanding the division of labor within theater can help language immersion teachers structure, maintain, and improve the language worlds they are creating within their own classrooms.
