Nikolay Markov Nikolov: The way to go – acting students, directing teachers, reflective efl classrooms

  1. 1. Eaquals International Conference, 16 – 18 April 2015 THE WAY TO GO: ACTING STUDENTS, DIRECTING TEACHERS, REFLECTIVE EFL CLASSROOMS!?! www.eaquals.org
  2. 2. Eaquals International Conference, 16 – 18 April 2015 2 PROFESSIONAL DRAMA OR IN THE EFL CLASSROOM  IF NOT, WHY NOT?  IF YES, HOW? IS THAT POSSIBLE? DISCUSS THAT IN PAIRS OR GROUPS, PLEASE! (task time limit: 2 mins.)
  3. 3. Eaquals International Conference, 16 – 18 April 2015 3 MY ANSWER TO THE QUESTION YES or T.I.M.E. The Teenodrama Interactive Method in English
  4. 4. Eaquals International Conference, 16 – 18 April 2015 4 WHAT IS TEENODRAMA?  Interactive FL teaching of teenagers through professional acting techniques instruction, dramatisation of texts and participation of the learners in stage activities in the target language during which they evaluate their partners’ or their own artistic and language skills.
  5. 5. Eaquals International Conference, 16 – 18 April 2015 5 T.I.M.E. – the major outcome of my study intended to:  prove the hypothesis that the instruction of professional acting techniques in the target language (English) alongside learners’ participation in stage activities in the target language enhances learners’ FL interactive speaking skills.  prove that T.I.M.E. training makes learners more motivated to participate actively in the process of FL acquisition and additionally develops in them a number of paralinguistic skills.
  6. 6. Eaquals International Conference, 16 – 18 April 2015 6 The research subjects: 16 Bulgarian teenage learners  At FL (English) B2/C1 level (CEFR)  Streamed into a Control Group (CG) and an Experimental Group (EG)
  7. 7. Eaquals International Conference, 16 – 18 April 2015 7 The experimental phases:  standard drama training (the common drama in the EFL classroom based on the teacher’s amateur understanding of stage art)  professional drama training (based on Stanislavski’s System and adapted to suit the EFL context)
  8. 8. Eaquals International Conference, 16 – 18 April 2015 8 Stanislavski’s System  А progression of techniques used to train actors and actresses to draw believable emotions to their performances. Originally created and used by Constantin Stanislavski from 1911 to 1916, later on (between 1934 and 1938) this technique evolved to a method of physical actions in which emotions are produced through the use of actions.
  9. 9. Eaquals International Conference, 16 – 18 April 2015 9 The T.I.M.E. Model (the professional drama training phase in the study) PLAY PREMIERE (THE FINAL ART PRODUCT) STAGE WORK AND EVALUATION SCRIPT ANALYSIS AND TEXT WORK ACTING EXERCISES SPEECH EXERCISES BODY EXERCISES PLAY AND CAST SELECTION
  10. 10. Eaquals International Conference, 16 – 18 April 2015 10 THE RESULTS (BASED ON THE EXPERIMЕNTAL DATA) 2,86% 20,18% 0,00% 5,00% 10,00% 15,00% 20,00% 25,00% GROUPS' OVERALL SPEAKING PROGRESS Control Group Experimental Group (The groups’ overall progress in their FL speaking accuracy, fluency, interaction and the use of communication strategies)
  11. 11. Eaquals International Conference, 16 – 18 April 2015 11 SUSTAINABILITY CHECK  Check of the sustainability of the 16 learners’ knowledge acquired during the experimental study period with a specially designed TEST based on “The Importance Of Being Earnest” (the final art product) including 3 tasks – a vocabulary task, a content-based task and a creative writing task. 11 months after the T.I.M.E. experiment
  12. 12. Eaquals International Conference, 16 – 18 April 2015 12 KNOWLEDGE SUSTAINABILITY RESULTS GROUPS’ AVERAGE SUSTAINABILITY TEST RESULTS TASKS CONTROL GROUP EXPERIMENTAL GROUP VOCABULARY 45,5% 84,2% CONTENT-BASED 38,8% 88,7% CREATIVE WRITING 60,3% 79,5% TOTAL 50,5% 78,3%

  14. 14. Eaquals International Conference, 16 – 18 April 2015 14 THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP ACTED OUT THE PLAY AGAIN  Without having thought about or read the play script for 11 months  Completely unprepared  Masterfully improvising  Shortening the play, but still presenting the main events of the plot MAKING IT A MUST-SEE PERFORMANCE!!!
  15. 15. Eaquals International Conference, 16 – 18 April 2015 15 CONCLUSIONS  Professional drama training in the EFL context (T.I.M.E.) is more effective than the standard drama in the EFL classroom  T.I.M.E. enhances learners’ interactive speaking skills  T.I.M.E. significantly enhances learners’ learning motivation
  16. 16. Eaquals International Conference, 16 – 18 April 2015 16 CONCLUSIONS  T.I.M.E. develops additional paralinguistic skills in learners, such as teamwork (noted by over 70% of the respondents of the final inquiry at the end of the experiment)  T.I.M.E. guarantees a funny and interesting way of learning (according to most inquiry respondents from the Experimental Group)  T.I.M.E. develops learners’ language and artistic performance evaluation and self-evaluation skills
  17. 17. Eaquals International Conference, 16 – 18 April 2015 17 CONCLUSIONS AND ABOVE ALL:  T.I.M.E. PROVIDES LEARNERS WITH SUSTAINABLE FL KNOWLEDGE AND ENHANCED FL INTERACTIVE SPEAKING SKILLS
