Overview

In "Critical Thinking in Language Learning" long-time professor of Spanish, Engracia Angrill Schuster, proposes practical changes in our approach to language instruction, mainly giving culture its rightful role as a driving force for communication. The result of extensive research and professional experience, the book offers a systematic approach for curriculum developers and instructors wanting to teach language and culture simultaneously-creating an environment that emphasizes language acquisition through cultural inquiry and exploration. Intended primarily for higher education, many of Schuster's ideas and tactics are nonetheless well-suited to the second language K-12 curricula.
