Given the series of activities included in this module on the importance of cultural context in the teaching of second languages, the participant should be able to: (a) prepare a culturally relevant grammatical exercise for a specific group of Puerto Rican Spanish-speakers, (b) list several possible activities for using the learner's cultural background in the English as a Second Language (ESL) classroom, and (c) evaluates the relevance of the cultural context in existing materials available for Spanish/English bilingual programs. The module includes short-essay pre- and post-assessment of the participant and learning alternatives, which are presented in outline form. Specific readings are assigned for each activity. A bibliography ends the module. (JA)
