Griselda Beacon

Griselda Beacon holds an MA in English & American Literature and Foreign Language Teaching from Philipps-Universität Marburg, Germany. She delivers teacher training workshops in Argentina and abroad and focusses on teaching young learners, children and adolescents´ literature, creativity, CLIL for primary teachers & intercultural education. At present she teaches Children and Adolescents’ Literature at Teacher Training College at the IES en Lenguas Vivas "Juan Ramón Fernández".


Primary & Secondary school teachers


• Discuss the intricate relationship between creative and critical thinking skills in the development of cognitive processes.
• Explore different ways to work with reading, writing and artistic expression to help children have a cognitive, artistic, emotional and physical learning experience.
• Discuss the many benefits of including a variety of teaching materials in the English Class.
• Attempt at writing poetry to develop language awareness and appropriation.
• Think, plan and carry out a variety of creative tasks that ignite imagination and commitment.


In this workshop we will learn about the arts, with the arts and through the arts! We will discuss the rationale of Arts Integration and its relationship with foreign language teaching. The updated version of Bloom´s taxonomy on Critical Thinking (Anderson and Krathwohl, 2001) positions “Creating” at the top of the pyramid of cognitive development. It shows that Creativity is multifold, it allows students to express themselves in a myriad of ways and, at the same time, it triggers cognitive mental processes. We will carry out a variety of activities that intend to unleash our own creativity in “artistic” tasks that involve collaboration and commitment!

The teaching material for this session includes poetry and visual art (Picasso’s cubist portraits).


The workshop has a dialogical and interactive approach. Participants will discuss and apply concepts, work with poetry and visual art, brainstorm creative teaching ideas, develop supporting teaching materials and carry out creative tasks.
