Best Practices for Integrating Culture in the Second Language Classroom

By Melody Kostiuk, Consultant-International Languages, Institute for Innovation in Second Language Education
Tuesday, October 28th, 4:00pm - 5:00pm Eastern Time

Are you a second language teacher looking for innovative and creative ideas on how to teach culture? Do you feel that you have insufficient instructional time to cover the language curriculum itself without addressing culture?  Do you sometimes wonder what kind of culture should be taught and whether or not you have the background and knowledge to teach culture?  If you have any of these questions, you are not alone. Join us in this session as we reflect on some of the challenges we face as second language teachers in teaching culture and explore some practical, research-based best practices for teaching culture.

Participants will also have the opportunity to interact with other participants by chatting online. This Online Professional Learning Session is part of CASLT's ongoing initiative to bring more Professional Learning (PL) opportunities to its members! The session will be facilitated by Jim Murphy, Board of Directors, on CASLT's PL platform, Adobe Connect.

CASLT's Best Practices Project

Are you using the CEFR to inform your teaching? Do you have a CEFR-inspired teaching strategy, approach, lesson, tool, etc. you are using that really works well and that you would like to share? If so, CASLT would like to include it (and acknowledge you) in a compilation of best practices that will be shared with second language educator colleagues across Canada.

If you are interested in participating in this exciting project to help teachers across Canada, please click here to access two sample templates of a lesson plan or sharing of ideas around a concept, which will guide you in presenting your best practice. In both instances, reference to the CEFR or European Language Portfolio (or adaptation thereof) should be made. You may wish to include a related page of visuals, student activity, and links or screen shots as necessary so that colleagues may easily replicate the strategy, lesson, etc.

Candidates whose best practices are selected will not only see their submission included in a resource publication, but will receive two complimentary copies of the publication and a 100$ prize. The deadline to submit your CEFR-based best practice is November 1, 2014. Please send your submission to direct@caslt.org. The selection committee will examine all proposals and announce the selected best practices by the end of November.

We look forward to receiving your submission.
