North Carolina State ESL Symposium – Featured Speaker: Many teachers integrate some form of culture teaching in the classroom, but this often takes place in haphazard fashion. In this interactive session, the presenter will demonstrate ten useful techniques to teach culture in the classroom in a more focused way. Participants in this practice-oriented presentation will be actively engaged in the demonstrations and will be encouraged to share their own experiences in teaching culture in the classroom. A handout will include topics for exploring culture, outlines of the techniques demonstrated, and a bibliography. At the conclusion of the session, participants will have gained new knowledge and practical skills to return to the classroom and make immediate use of the techniques to engage their students in culture learning.
