Cultural Iceberg Metaphor

Mike Berg’s Blog

When you first arrive in a foreign culture, you start at the tip of the iceberg. Above the waterline, which represents your level of cultural awareness, are the actions, thoughts, and words (observational behavior) of a culture. What you don’t see, however, until your water level lowers revealing more of the iceberg is the beliefs, values, and assumptions of a culture that motivates the observational behavior above the surface. Thus, the waterline is one of the reasons wars are fought and you can’t help but feel lost when exposed.

TECHNOLOGY GUIDANCE

Integrating ICT in MFL Classroom- This should be your starting point for how to integrate technology into your classroom. There are extensive podcasts, slide shows, etc. Joe Dale has done an amazing job harnessing useful resources. His blog is what inspired me to create my own. Furthermore, his students at the

Nodehill

School

have great podcasts that you can subscribe to in ITunes.

Podcasts Foreign Language.  Podcasts are a great way to bring language into your classroom. Buying an IPod (I have the third generation Nano which has video capacity) allows you to listen and view on the go. You can also hook your IPod to the TV with a special cord.

ITunes download – You can search for podcasts in the ITunes store.

Carole Fredericks Foundation

The Foundation provides teachers with authentic French language materials and easy to use, classroom tested lesson plans and related methodologies that engage students, teach French language skills and promote the study of francophone cultures. Carole was an African American singer who was most famous by her recordings in

France

with Jean-Jacques Goldman and Michael Jones. She is my inspiration…

http://www.carolefredericksfoundation.org/

Voix de l'Espoir- Que Serai- Je Demain?

* Although this video was created after Carole's death, her distinctive voice is ever present in the song. There is a brief clip of Carole in this video.

A larger than life figure with a generous spirit, Carole was a performer who threw herself into her live performances body and soul. She liked nothing more than getting involved in fund-raising tours with singers and musician friends. Indeed, Carole was a regular at charity concerts organized by Restos du Cœur and Les Enfoirés. On March 8th (2001)... she brought the house down at “Voix de l’Espoir [Voices of Hope]” concert organized on International Women’s Day. Taking the stage at Club Med World in Paris with a host of other female singers including Princess Erika, Jocelyne Beroard, Rokia Traoré and Lââm, Carole helped to raise much needed funds for the construction of a Pan-African children’s hospital in Dakar [Senegal, West Africa].”
