"On Tolstoy and Toilets" Covers Teaching of Russian

Saturday Jun 9, 2012 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM | McCombs School of Business (CBA), events room 3.306

This workshop examines the place of both "high" (formal) and "low" (everyday) culture in the teaching of Russian from the beginning level, emphasizing the use of authentic texts, media and realia to make both subjects relevant to language students. Workshop offers four hours of CPE credits.

Participants will also learn about portfolio-based assessment of cultural literacy, and what part it plays in overall proficiency gains in the language.

The event is sponsored by the Texas Language Center (TLC), Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (COERLL).
