Intercultural Resource Pack

February 18th, 2008 by Dave · 1 Comment

The Intercultural Resource Pack is a free electronic ELT textbook with a variety of cultural and global issues based activities. Even though it is subtitled “Latin American Perspectives,” most of the activities could be used with students anywhere. Each activity is labelled according to the target students’ ages and levels. The five sections of the book are:

  1. The Learner as Ethnographer
  2. Cultural Values and Attitudes
  3. Challenging Stereotypes
  4. Critical Readings of Culture
  5. The Media

I like the fact that the authors’ treat the students as researchers. I have had luck with that approach in my own teaching. Check out the activities, and let the authors know what you think.

    Thank you very much for your review of the ICRP !! I was myself searching for Global issues and found your blog.
    The GI lesson proposals are well thought and we, teachers, using our creativity can adapt them to our learners’ needs and context. Keep up with the great (work) blog!!

    Greetings from the ICRP team
