Stad en Taal: Taal en ouderbetrokkenheid

Stad en Taal is for participants of 'taal en ouderbetrokkenheid’. During the lessons, the participants are the ones speaking and practice speaking skills. You will look at photos and talk about what you see and even use a camera yourself, during the program.

Background information

Taal en ouderbetrokkenheid is part of Stad en Taal, an initiative of the township Amsterdam in which five Amsterdam museums participate. These museums offer approachable programs in which language and cultural participation are stimulated. The publication of Cultuur netwerk Nederland describes the outcomes and experiences of this Amsterdam City and Language project.

Learning goals

  • Get acquainted with Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam and the cultural life of the city
  • Consciously learning to look at photography
  • Develop fluency, listening and writing skills in the Dutch language
  • Enlargement of your vocabulary
  • Presenting personal stories with the help of photography
  • Gaining more self-understanding and self-confidence

Workshop overview

Lesson 1: preparational class given by the language teacher
With the help of the teacher manual and the workbooks for the participants, you will talk about the 6 pictures form the teaching toolkit. Based on these photos you make word cards, which are used later in the workshop and during the museum visit.

Lesson 2: photography workshop at the lesson location
For the workshop, a Foam museum teacher comes to the teaching location. During this lesson, everyone makes a special photo inspired by a personal story.

Lesson 3: museum visit and festive presentation
The museum visit starts with an interactive tour of the museum under the guidance of your own museum teacher. After this, the stories and photos of all participants will be festively presented in Foam.

For an optimal learning result, we recommend that you follow the complete package of three lessons. Because of the structure of the lessons, the teaching material lasts better. If your group does not have enough time to spend, you can opt for a package of two lessons. One of these lessons is always the preparatory lesson by the language teacher.
