Teaching Culture in the Elementary Foreign Language Classroom: Deciding What To Teach.
Cellini, Donald
The content and materials of cultural instruction in elementary school second language courses are discussed. First, the availability of such materials is examined, and a model for deciding what to teach is presented. Four factors are included in this model: students' first language proficiency and the transfer of skills to the second language; developmental stages and the appropriateness of materials for each; methods and materials for teaching culture and assessing cultural learning; and culture themes to be included in the curriculum. Literature relating to each of these factors is reviewed. In relation to selection of culture themes, several approaches to selecting content are presented. Contains 27 references. (MSE)
