New Brunswick, NJ – Hyatt New Brunswick

Host Institution: Rutgers University

Cultural literacy (CL) is an important foundation for students to develop to learn about target language society’s values, traditions and experiences. It is an asset for other cultural studies courses related to the cultures of the target language. This panel examines how CL is incorporated into the teaching of LCTLs in the US academy. The panel seeks to demonstrate that culture provides a productive terrain for teaching grammar communicatively according to the standards set by ACTFL.
