Culture as Core
in the Second Language Classroom

July 25–29, 2016


Target Audience
: Late elementary school to postsecondary foreign language and ESL teachers and teacher educators.

The national Standards for Foreign Language Learning state that students "cannot truly master...language until they have also mastered the cultural context in which the language occurs." Cultural learning helps students discover there are multiple ways of viewing the world, which is the first step toward developing the intercultural competence necessary to participate fully in an increasingly global community. Weaving together theory and practice, this interactive institute will help teachers develop instructional strategies for integrating language learning into a systematic culture curriculum, as well as tools and techniques for assessing growth in intercultural understanding.
