AATG sponsored Panel: Teaching Intercultural Competence in the German
Language Classroom

Research has shown that students learning a second language do not automatically acquire simultaneous competence in intercultural communication and interaction without thoughtful instruction of the skills and attitudes attributed to an interculturally competent individual. This panel seeks presentations on teaching intercultural competence in the German language classroom. Topics may include, but are certainly not limited to:

- Specific modules
- Assessment
- Interpersonal and presentational modes
- Development and assessment in immersive environments and study abroad
- The role of intercultural competence in the (German) language classroom
- Resources for teaching intercultural competence in the (German) language classroom

Please submit abstracts of app. 250 words by June 18, 2012 to Susanne Kelley, Department of Foreign Languages, Kennesaw State University, at skelle16@kennesaw.edu.
