Gifu JALT:

From Curiosity to Competency: Intercultural Activities for the EFL Classroom

Date: Saturday, February 20th, 2010 Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Speaker: Jon Dujmovich

Educators often speak of using activities appropriate for each language learning stage. However, when incorporating "cultural elements" into lessons, there is usually little consideration of the learners' developmental stage of intercultural learning. Consequently, ill-matched activities can reaffirm or deepen cultural misunderstandings, with questionable growth in intercultural competency. This workshop will demonstrate incorporating activities according to the learners' intercultural developmental stage, age, and language ability, and how to adjust the activities for learning stage appropriateness.
