This workshop examines the place of both “high” (formal) and “low” (everyday) culture in the teaching of Russian from the beginning level. Emphasis is placed on the use of authentic texts, media, and realia to make both subjects relevant to language students. Participants will also learn about portfolio-based assessment of cultural literacy, and what part it plays in overall proficiency gains in the language. This workshop offers four hours of CPE credits.
