Towards a Sociocultural Framework in the EFL Classroom.
Medina, Carmen; Neff, JoAnne
This paper presents the results of a study of sociocultural materials used with approximately 50 primary and secondary school teachers of English as a foreign language (EFL) in Andalusia, Spain. Because Spain is becoming a more culturally diverse society, and will become even more so in the future as it joins the European Union, the Spanish Ministry of Education has decided to reform the entire Spanish education system from the primary through the university level. Teachers are now required to devise their own syllabi adapted to their own local educational needs and circumstances. The paper catalogues the small tasks and decisions that go into designing and implementing the new, more multicultural curriculum in Andalusia. (Contains 16 references.) (KFT)
