Cross-cultural ConnectionsAs part of the Language of Power cross-curricular unit in 9th grade Language Arts and Geography classes, students interviewed international students from UF’s English Language Institute. Using digital recorders awarded through a grant, students asked questions relating to learning English as a second language. Students also posed questions relating to cultural values, immersion, and shocks. Students will transcribe the interviews and reflect on their intercultural experiences, as well as synthesize this experience with the content they’re learning in their Language Arts and Geography classes.
