Investigating the Use of Multi-Sensory Imaging to Promote and Deepen Emotive Engagement with Authentic Texts.

This article has been taken from my final year project at university. It is centred around a lesson based on an extract from ‘The Beach’, a novel by Alex Garland. What follows is an explication of the thinking that lies behind the lesson structure and design. Much of the same kind of thinking lies behind many of the other lesson plans you will find at this site.

Although the lesson originally contained an introductory section whereby the Ss were shown the whys and wherefores of what we were about to do this has been removed and can now be found at Why We Use Relaxation and Drawing Techniques in The FL Classroom.

The lesson itself can be found at The Beach Lesson.

Abstract

This project outlines the theoretical background to the concepts of Accelerated Learning and Multi - Sensory Imaging and details how they can be utilised in the foreign language classroom in order to assist in promoting and deepening emotive engagement with authentic texts. The intention is to show that alternative approaches to learning can be undertaken within a more conventional learning environment. As such a set of materials has been developed for use in the classroom and is presented here. The rationale behind the choices and decisions involved in writing the materials is fully explained. The lesson itself has been taught and then evaluated in the light of student feedback obtained through a simple questionnaire.
