The goal of this unit has been to demonstrate to foreign language teachers how they can incorporate the teaching of culture into their foreign language classrooms. In this curriculum unit, I have defined the different types of culture; demonstrated its relevance to second language learning; and given suggestions as to when and how both formal and deep cultures can be incorporated into the already existing curriculum of a beginning language course. The five cultural activity sheets at the end of the unit are specifically designed so that they may be used by any classroom teacher whose goal is to expose students to the cultural diversity within their classrooms, schools, and communities.
(Recommended for any foreign language class, grades 7 through 12)
