I am seeking submissions for my Rocky Mountain Modern Language =
Association
Panel for the "Practical Approaches to Teaching Culture" panel, to be
presented at the 60th annual RMMLA convention in Tucson, AZ (October =
12-14,
2006).

=20

In today's multicultural American environment, it is imperative for =
college
instructors to integrate lessons which challenge our students to better
understand culture. To do so, we must seek innovative, fun, and creative
approaches toward doing so. How will we get our students engaged in
understanding culture, so that it is applicable to their lives outside =
of
the classroom? What are some of the lessons you use to engage your =
students
in considering and analyzing the ideas of culture? This panel seeks
creative yet critical approaches toward teaching culture in the =
classroom.
We would like to see equally creative and innovative presentations of =
those
lessons to the group, allowing attendees of this session to see and =
discuss
your lesson, review some handouts, view your PowerPoint presentations or
even look over sample student writing. Get creative. Have fun with it! =
