The Cultural Conundrum: Cultural Literacy in the Classroom.
Malone, Stephen
English Teacher: An International Journal, v5 n3 p277-82 Jul 2002
Focuses on the potential pitfalls of exposing students from a non-Western culture, such as Thailand, to literature in English with its accompanying baggage of cultural references. Referencing Ed Hirsch, Jr.s, "Cultural Literacy--What Every American Needs to Know," the importance of cultural literacy as opposed to mere lexical literacy is emphasized. (Author/VWL)
