Sildus, Tatiana, Ed.
Central States Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages
The 2012 Central States Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages focused on ways to integrate culture into every facet of the World Language classroom. This publication presents a refereed volume of selected papers based on the theme and program of the Central States Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. Those who attended the conference were reminded of the importance of recognizing the cultural spark that ignited their passion to teach and share world languages with future generations. At the same time a variety of strategies and opportunities that are available to educators through both physical and digital media were examined. More than 250 presenters at the 2012 conference shared their genius through sessions and workshops over the course of the three days. From a joint venture with the Wisconsin FLESFEST to support from the national language organizations, to professional development offerings ranged from pre-kindergarten to university with themes from advocacy to technology. Throughout the 2012 "Report," the authors have contributed a variety of articles to this publication. These scholars discuss how technology ties into the instruction of culture in the classroom and connecting students to the world. Teacher development and community involvement are also topics included that will help readers make connections with the world and the plethora of cultures that surround us. This 2012 "Report" addresses all levels of instruction from kindergarten to university to give the readers of this volume the highest possibility of making a connection with the articles.
