LAI 681SEM Understanding/Teaching Second Language Culture


This course introduces major concepts, theories, and research related to cultural dimensions of second/foreign language education and supports students in developing a range of options for approaching culture in their own language teaching. Another main goal of the course is to provide students with the opportunity to investigate culture using qualitative methods. The main course objectives are: to closely examine the concept of culture, to explore, through discussion and research, how culture operates in human behavior and interaction and to become familiar with cultural and intercultural learning processes. By the end of the course, students will be able to define culture and discuss its role in language education and learning, explain a range of pedagogical options in approaching the teaching of culture in the language classroom and articulate their own approach to culture-in-language-teaching and develop principled pedagogical activities to be used in the classroom.
