Participants will learn a variety of ways to teach culture through Comprehensible Input (CI). An overview of CI strategies will be presented. Participants will take-home tips on how to develop activities for students to learn about cultures through platforms like MovieTalk and PictureTalk. Learn how to incorporate practical and fun activities in your language courses, such as simple news stories, virtual field trips, and pop-up culture.
