How can I begin incorporating local culture into my classroom?

WTLC empowers educators to find authentic connections between their curriculum and local culture and to teach their students to understand their own culture while developing respect for other cultures.

The links to the left will introduce you to basic principles of local culture; instruct your students on how to observe, interview, and understand people, including tools and skills for people watching and ways to present research; provide educators with starter lesson plans and accompanying activities; and real world examples of simple to complex ways of integrating local culture studies into educational programs.
