Teaching Culture in the Immersion Classroom. Teacher's Activity Manual.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD. Office of Instruction and Program Development.
The purpose of this manual, which accompanies a video program, is to provide general background information for foreign language teachers who are, or soon will be, teaching in total, partial, or two-way immersion classrooms. Part of a series of video programs, this manual highlights special considerations for immersion teachers about deciding what culture is, when it should be taught, and how to teach it. The program is divided into three sections that discuss the following: defining culture; identifying reasons to teach culture; and developing a plan for teaching culture. This teacher's manual and the accompanying video may be used in a variety of ways. The viewer may first wish to read the information in the section "Background Reading," and then view the video program and complete the seven related activities included in the manual, or the viewer may wish to first watch the video, read the articles, and complete the activities in the manual.
