|Following the three components of culture as endorsed by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) in the World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages: Perspectives, Practices, and Products, this website provides statements arranged by topics for Practices, by country for Products and by values for Perspectives.|
Perspectives, Practices and Products
This section contains statements, taken from a survey, describing some of the perspectives of sixteen values Hispanics advocate. Two hundred Hispanic people from twenty countries (Spanish America and Spain) responded to the survey.
The main purpose of this section is to provide teachers with information and materials for twenty Hispanic countries. These materials could be used to support a particular statement from Perspectives or to add information for a determined statement form the Practices section.
The purpose of these statements is to aid teachers in the formulation of their daily teaching of cultural objectives. These statements could also be used as a self-progress cultural development tool.
