Language and creative arts: how do they connect?
The special issue is part of the journal Humanising Language Teaching, whose mission is to bring together teachers, students, researchers, materials writers, in a freely available resource that places effective, affective learning and teaching at its heart.
Anything from 1-6 pages, less academic than major articles, can range from a short academic text to a very personal one.
10 -15 pages, in exceptional cases can be longer, kind of academic but must be with a practical humanistic angle.
Review of ELT and other publications which teachers might find useful, short contributions or longer articles.
Anything you find funny and worth sharing but relating to ELT, jokes, anecdotes from the classroom, or an article on using humour in class.
An old exercise
An possibly forgotten exercise you know and which still works, evergreens which may be worth sharing with the the young generation of teachers.
Practical classroom activities with a bit of theory if you choose to include some.
Ideas for a book somebody is planning to publish, or has just come out.
Learners or pre-service teachers write about their learning experience,sometimes teachers if they had an interesting learning experience.
Poems written by language teachers or students in class, another opportunity to be creative.
