Pathways Vol. 12 The Pedagogy of Performing Another Culture
Print

Description

The Pedagogy of Performing Another Culture is a collection of papers which examine theoretical and practical problems encountered in Chinese pedagogy today. Compared with other works in the same field, the greatest attribute of this book lies in its in-depth discussion of the "Performed Culture" pedagogical approached developed by Dr. Galal Walker at The Ohio State University. This book is an essential primer towards understanding and application of the "Performed Culture" approach as well as a foundation for the further advancement of pedagogical approaches that use culture as the focal point.

All LRCs
Previous LRC
Next LRC
In 1990, the Department of Education established the first Language Resource Centers (LRCs) at U.S. universities in response to the growing national need for expertise and competence in foreign languages. Now, twenty-five years later, Title VI of the Higher Education Act supports sixteen LRCs, creating a national network of resources to promote and improve the teaching and learning of foreign languages.

LRCs create language learning and teaching materials, offer professional development opportunities for language instructors, and conduct and disseminate research on foreign language learning. All LRCs engage in efforts that enable U.S. citizens to better work, serve, and lead.

8 Areas of Focus

Each LRC has a unique story and mission, but all LRC work is organized around eight basic areas:
  • Research
  • Teaching materials
  • Digital tools and resources
  • Assessment
  • Professional development
  • Less commonly taught languages initiatives
  • K-12 initiatives
  • Outreach and dissemination

You may also contact each LRC individually by locating their directory information in the Meet the LRCs menu.
