Course Description:

Cultural Integration in the World Language Classroom: The Role of Intercultural Competence in 21st Century Language Learning

This course focuses on current second language teaching methodology and pedagogy addressing the topic of Intercultural Communicative Competence (ICC). Utilizing the World Readiness Standards presented by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) and the NECTFL-ACTFL Can-Do Statements pertaining to ICC, participants in this course will study how the development of linguistic competence and cultural awareness lead to successful communication and awareness. Students will learn how to create lessons and assessments that incorporate and relate cultural products and practices to cultural perspectives. Using the ICC framework, students will gain deeper insight into interpreting cultural contexts, interacting in these contexts, cultivating curiosity and openness to the target culture, and reflecting critically on their own cultural context. Open to teachers of modern and classical languages. Conducted in English
