2  Work creatively to ◦ Cross disciplinary boundaries ◦ Incorporate the study of various materials ◦ Promote wide cultural understanding in language learning  Put us back with the world, a bigger community than the target culture, people, or language 6/25/2010 15th AATK

3  Definition of what the ultimate goals for our students should be  Redefined and newly developed understanding of what communication is and the consequent implementation in connection with  Communities  Developing view of learners  Social and cognitive aspects of language learning 6/25/2010 15th AATK
