Authentic or Stereotypical? "teaching Culture" in the World Language Classroom (6-6)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Fill in the blank: “All Americans __________.” Not so easy, is it? And yet, we frequently provide input and request student output like: “Spanish people eat tapas.” or “Chinese people do kung-fu.” With goals to develop intercultural competence as well as language proficiency in our classrooms, how do we train students to think critically and dispel instead of create stereotypes about the target culture? Join us in a discussion of strategies focusing on eliminating stereotypes in the world language classroom!
