This session explores how the integration of content and culture can provide wonderful opportunities for developing multiple intelligences and enhancing young children’s language skills in a range of diverse and appealing ways. Through the use of real content, which builds on children’s knowledge of the world, and elements adopted from traditions of children’s culture, such as storytelling, songs, action rhymes and games, young children are motivated to use language in ways which are purposeful and creative and which develop their confidence and self-esteem. The main focus will be on establishing learning frameworks, which combine the inclusion of content and culture and develop the unique, learning potential of every child, allowing them to blossom both as language learners and as people.
