Foreign Language Instruction in New York State for the 1970's: "The Culture Question".
Glaude, Paul M.
The problem of teaching culture in language classes is reflected in the criticism directed to the current Part 4 section of the Regents foreign language examination given in the State of New York. This paper, the result of a panel discussion on culture, proposes changes in the examinations and proposes new directions in the study of culture. Topics include: (1) the nature of culture, (2) purposes of teaching culture, (3) cultural and educational goals, (4) testing, (5) implementation of theories, (6) teaching methodology, and (7) official position of the New York State Bureau of Foreign Languages Education on the issue of language and culture teaching.
