The collection of essays and ideas for exploring culture in the English-as-a-second-language (ESL) classroom presents contributions by teachers around the world. An introductory section contains five articles that offer a theoretical and conceptual framework for including culture and intercultural dimensions in ESL instruction. The subsequent four sections contain 50 classroom activities grouped in four areas: activities to explore the nexus of language and culture; activities for sociolinguistic exploration; activities for culture exploration; and activities for intercultural exploration. Each includes information about appropriate instructional level, instructional aims, and needed class time, preparation time, and resources as well as specific procedures. Some include handouts and worksheets. Most also include one or more references for further reading. (MSE)
