How to Introduce African Culture into Your World Language Classroom – Jenniffer Whyte

Many world language classrooms are missing the diversity of African influence in their classrooms. African culture is richer than we realize because it has been hidden, rejected, and erased from our history for so long. As world language teachers, we are responsible for educating our students, for preparing them for a culturally diverse world. Let us be agents of change by adapting and incorporating Afro culture into our everyday lessons. Our students can identify with the music, art, dance, food, and many other aspects of the culture. Join this session and you will gain ideas, resources, and plans on how to incorporate African culture through reading, writing, listening, and oral production in your world language classrooms. You will even see a model on how to teach a fascinating and informative lesson online. This plan is be adaptable to any world language classroom. Be ready to be on the edge of your seat!
