An Action Research of the Role of Motor Activities in L2 Learners’ English Achievement
It is widely acknowledged that optimal learning in children takes place when they are motivated to discover and learn in a playful and relaxed atmosphere. The purpose of this action research was to investigate the role of teaching accompanied by motor activities in the English achievement of Iranian learners. A sample including 44 young language learners were placed into a control group and an experimental group. The learners in the control group were taught in the traditional way, but those in the experimental group were taught English accompanied by physical activities in a gym-like class and through playing roles and acting out. At the end, a written exam was administered to both groups and the results were analyzed. Results from this study showed that the treatment had a significant effect on learners’ achievement. This finding is discussed and some pedagogical implications are provided.
