Current Issues of American Culture in the EFL Classroom: Annual ASC Meeting 2017

Organized by Dr. Julia Nitz (MLU Halle-Wittenberg)

Annual American Studies Committee Meeting 2017

November 23-25, 2017, Lutherstadt Wittenberg

This is the sixteenth time teachers from across Germany will meet in Wittenberg for a seminar consisting of lectures and discussion periods with the aim of promoting the presence of American Studies in the EFL classroom. Furthermore, the results of the meeting are used for publications of teaching resources on the webpage of the Muhlenberg Center for American Studies.

The group consists not only of teacher coordinators but also of advanced teacher students and students who want to become teachers. They are also involved in the organization phase, so that the contents and aims of the seminar are aligned with the needs of teachers and teaching practitioners in general, and also by those who are new to the profession. Thus, the seminar is not only an event for continuing education in the field of American culture and history, but also a platform where teaching practitioners from different areas and at different levels can network and share their experience in teaching America relevant topics.

Program, talk and workshop abstracts as well as speaker bios upcoming.
