Teaching Culture through Reading.
Miller, Virgil
Guidelines for developing cross-cultural awareness and understanding in high school students studying a second language are offered to teachers of all languages, but more detailed references are supplied for the teacher of Spanish. Suggestions include teaching the familiar first, presenting a well-rounded view of the target culture, balancing the exotic with the everyday aspects, stressing cultural and intrinsic worth, reading worthwhile cultural materials in English, and providing intensive reading experiences of a wide range of materials both in the classroom and at home. A number of appropriate materials are mentioned. (AF)
