Southern Conference on Language Teaching
"Dimension" is the annual volume containing the selected, refereed, edited Proceedings of each year's conference. "From Practice to Profession" was the announced theme of the annual conference of the Southern Conference on Language Teaching (SCOLT), held March 1-3, 2007, at the Atlanta (GA) Renaissance Hotel, in partnership with the Foreign Language Association of Georgia and, for the first time, the Southeastern Association for Language Laboratory Technology. The eight articles of the present volume address this intentionally broad theme in insightful and interesting ways. Following an introduction by editors Lee Bradley and C. Maurice Cherry, the articles selected for inclusion in this volume are: (1) NCSSFL's LinguaFolio Project (Jacque Bott Van Houton); (2) Misperceptions of Attitudes Toward Language Study (Carolyn Gascoigne); (3) Student Perspectives on Foundation Issues in Articulation (Nike Arnold); (4) Germany's Multicultural and Multiracial Issues (Catherine T. Johnson); (5) Representation of Latino Culture in Introductory High School Textbooks (Patricia Thomas); (6) Maya and Nahuatl in the Teaching of Spanish: Expanding the Professional Perspective (Anne Fountain and Catherine Fountain); (7) A 21st Century Approach to Integrating Culture and Communication (Rosalie M.
