From out of the drill. Margini di comunicativizzazione del drill
Keywords:DRILL, COMMUNICATIVE TEACHING, PEDAGOGY OF HUMANITIES, LESSON PLAN
Drills are golden oldies: even when their popularity seems to have waned, they still are ‘evergreen’ activities i.e., always open to innovation, like translation tasks and dictation exercises. After having previously examined the role of communicative framing in both translation and dictation activities (Torresan, 2011a; Torresan, 2012), this article completes a trilogy by investigating the use of drills within a communicative framework. Like other activities, drills can also serve as useful communicative tools: they can rely on an interactive communicative space and be based on the relationship between form and content, without being too demanding or lacking focus.
