Teaching Foreign Language Outrageously
Foreign language teaching lends itself richly to Outrageous instruction. It is quite easy to create imaginary scenarios and settings that get students to learn new language concepts and definitions by being immersed in the moment. There are several examples in the book of students learning new definitions strictly by playing along with teacher role-play.
