Integrating Culture into the Russian Language Curriculum at Argonne Elementary School
Teper, Mila
Learning Languages, v15 n2 p3-5 Spr 2010

Cultural instruction must be integrated into all lessons throughout the year, not just taught as mini-lessons in order. Teachers cannot expect their students to gain intercultural competencies through activities that are not embedded in cultural contexts any more than they can expect their students to gain communicative proficiency by simply doing drills on worksheets. In this article, the author shares the Russian FLES program at Argonne Elementary School in San Francisco.
