Community languages, the arts and transformative pedagogy

By Jim Anderson


Consistent with the goal to pass on heritage to the\ud next generation, teachers of community languages\ud always build a strong cultural focus into their\ud teaching. This often includes an arts dimension,\ud such as work around festivals and traditional tales.\ud This article, based on qualitative research in four\ud London schools in 2009-10, explores different\ud ways of incorporating an arts focus into\ud community language teaching and the importance\ud such work has for the children’s learning and\ud confidence
