Title : Playing with words: Poetry and CALL
Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

In this session, the presenter will share activities and tools used in a Composition through Literature course at a Hong Kong community college focusing on Early Childhood Education (ECE).  In the spirit of the "learning through play" philosophy promoted by the school's ECE lecturers, the presenter focused on incorporating into the course playful language learning activities with poetry, especially activities to build language proficiency and develop vocabulary.  The presentation will begin with an introduction to the college and its students. Then, the presenter will describe the course lessons related to the reading and writing of poetry. The presenter will share an example of a course HyperDoc (which is an interactive digital lesson using Google apps) and tools used for various activities like building vocabulary, brainstorming, and making Word Clouds. For poetry writing, the presenter will share samples of templates for writing original poems and also the students' final presentation of their poems in a class PowerPoint.
