Untitled Document Volume II - 1994 Teaching English Through Broadway Musicals by Gina Milano Gina Milano, a graduate of Columbia University, teaches ESL at Hunter College in New York City and at various corporations throughout New Jersey. Fluent in Italian and Spanish, she was a presenter at TESOL Baltimore (1994). Using songs and videos of well known musical plays can be a stimulating alternative for ESL classes at any level of proficiency. Bringing musicals to the classroom provides wonderful opportunities to expand vocabulary and gain familiarity with colloquial expressions and certain grammatical structures. Not to be underestimated is the musical itself. I began working with musicals when I was teaching an elective course entitled "English through Broadway" at Hunter College in New York. I chose eight different musicals that were on commercially available videotapes. Although actual experience with musicals is welcome, any teacher with or without a musical ear can use this method.

Four Strategies to Spark Curiosity via Student Questioning British archaeologist Mary Leakey described her own learning as being "compelled by curiosity." Curiosity is the name we give to the state of having unanswered questions. And unanswered questions, by their nature, help us maintain a learning mindset. When we realize that we do not know all there is to know about something in which we are interested, we thirst. We pursue. We act as though what we do not know is more important than what we do, as though what we do not possess is worth the chase to own it. Strategy One: Equip Students to Ask Questions At its essence, curiosity is asking questions and pursuing answers. We often ask students if they have any questions, but we rarely teach them how to ask advantageous questions. Strategy Two: Provide a Launch Pad Even if students have mastered the full range of question forming, it is difficult to inquire about topics with which they have no familiarity. Strategy Three: Cast a Wide Net Strategy Four: Avoid Cutting the Search Short References

Just So Stories (version 4) by Rudyard Kipling Rudyard KIPLING (1868 - 1936) The Just So Stories for Little Children are among Kipling's best known and loved works. This recording aims to be the first complete audio book of this title with nothing left out. The Nobel prize-winning author's enjoyment in playing with the sounds and meanings of words is very evident throughout, and adds to adults' enjoyment of these stories for children. This playfulness is also dramatically present in the plotting. As we all are, Kipling was a child of his time and social setting, so for example in "How the Leopard Got his Spots" he uses what one recent reviewer called "the N word" to refer to the Ethiopian. This recording of the Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling includes Kipling's descriptions of the pictures he drew for the book. The stories are fanciful, and not intended to offer historical, scientific or religious accounts of the way things became. So please enjoy them in this reading.
