The Environmental Approach to Language Learning.
Wallach, Martha K.; Geppert, Heinz
The cultural element has traditionally been incorporated into language study in a variety of ways. Part one of this section describes one method. At the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, culture is taught as part of a required four-year sequence of courses entitled "Liberal Education Seminars" which introduce the student to cultural environment and cross-cultural studies. Part two describes another method, whereby language is learned through projects which create student involvement with the language. The following projects are described: a puppet show; a radio-play workshop; making video tapes or films; oral interpretation of poetry; and play production. (AM)
