Teaching Cross-Cultural Understanding.
Andersson, Theodore
Fundamental prerequisites for successful cross-cultural instruction in language programs are outlined in this paper. Attainment of instructional objectives is seen to be dependent on teacher attitudes and educational preparation. Problems confronting language teachers attempting to attain a measure of sophistication in the theory of cross-cultural instruction are discussed. Several successful bilingual programs for young children are briefly reviewed. Concluding remarks point out that the teaching of culture requires both precept and example. (RL)
