Crossing Cultures is designed with 12th-grade students in mind, concentrating on topics such as youth culture, TV soaps and cloning.
It takes its material largely from the comments of people specially interviewed in Britain and Romania. In accordance with the latest educational advice, stress is laid less upon the development of memory than on the five other cognitive skills that form the basis of content-based subjects. Students learn to manipulate the main concepts of cultural studies through a variety of activities, with the stress on democratic group work.
Crossing Cultures is designed to be easy for teachers to use. Even though the student’s book is self-standing, a teacher’s book provides answers, extra information, suggestions for the conduct of classes, together with proposals for further activities, projects, and assessments.
There is also an audio-cassette as an integral part of the course, consisting of recorded interviews.
Crossing Cultures will also be valuable at undergraduate level as an introduction to the cultural study of peoples from all nations.
