VIA Culture explores drama as a medium for second language acquisition and social inclusion through cultural heritage in education. The VIA Culture method has already been implemented successfully in three different foreign languages and the students’ feedback was very positive! The MFL teachers involved, advocated that the VIA Culture method supported their multicultural, multi-ethnic and diverse classes and observed significant academic progress and engagement in their bilingual and new arrival students. In the workshop the elements of the method will be presented and the structure of a VIA Culture lesson plan will be demonstrated. After the completion of the workshop you will be able to use effectively drama and heritage in your lesson planning when templates and resources will be made available.
