Teaching English as a Challenge.
This experiential workshop relates the theory and practice of a programme, English in Action, teaching English through Drama, designed especially for the Ministry of Education’s Special Education department in the City of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The specific needs and challenges of the population of the 500 students currently in the programme are outlined, from students with ADHD, phobia, emotional trauma, or dyslexia to wheel chair users and students confined to their houses or hospitals with terminal diseases.
The theory will be briefly explained, based on sound evidence, while plenty of practice will serve to illustrate the efficacy of the methodology. The participants will leave with ideas for planning the why, the what and the how of teaching English to students with a challenging range of learning difficulties.
An extensive webography and bibliography will be provided.

Enjoyable physical movement embeds the emotional impact of multi-sensory experiences on the cells of the body to form deep neuronal patterns in the brain and thereby enable memory and recall more readily than methods having lesser sensory impact” (Wilkinson,2000:27).
