Tales by Teens

In this workshop, I will introduce a language teaching procedure which will be the intervention in a research project. “Tales by teens” is a creative collective writing method that can be used in various educational environments such as English as a foreign language lessons, writing workshops, and extracurricular interest groups. Taking up a task-based approach, we will
engage in story-writing in a performative way. Specifically, we will make use of process drama conventions in order to develop a story line. After that, we will improvise key moments from the story and integrate it into our writing. This way, we will reach at a story, written collectively, resulting from the group process.
