Designing World Language Curriculum for Intercultural Communicative Competence (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This book creatively redefines how teacher educators and teachers in secondary and post-secondary education can teach languages with intercultural education in mind. The author aligns theoretical frameworks with practical features for revising the modern language curriculum through intercultural themes and novel tasks that transfer language learning from the classroom to the community, developing communicative competence along the way.

For novice and experienced instructors alike, this book empowers the reader to:

- design curriculum from transferable concepts that are worthy of understanding and have value within the culture(s) and to the learner;

- develop assessments that ask the learner to solve problems, create products, and that transfer concepts or address needs of various audiences that they will encounter in community, life, and work;

- direct language learners through an articulated program between levels that meets academic and career goals.

Pedagogical features include a glossary of key terms, research-to-practice boxes, and template samples representing language exemplars for Arabic, Chinese, French, Greek, German, Hindi, Italian, Korean, Russian, Spanish, Swahili and Indigenous languages. The accompanying online resources offer blank templates and guides for designing curricula and performance assessments.

Jennifer Eddy is Associate Professor and Program Director of World Language Education at Queens College, City University of New York, USA.
