    Guidelines for Cultural Participation Research:

    An important part of learning a world language involves learning about the people who speak the language, their culture, their history, and their pastimes.  Not all of this can occur in the classroom.  The purpose of the ACE project is to give world language students individual opportunities to connect with the language and culture they are working really hard to learn, outside of their classroom.  This project encourages students to visit museums, missions, and other historical sites.  They need to find opportunities to communicate with native speakers of the language in stores, classes, museums, and  their local communities, even meeting and texting people in their new learned skill.  Students may try a new experience of seeing live performances, watching movies in Spanish, making a craft object, copying a famous work of art or preparing an authentic meal and even teaching someone how to dance a popular routine.  They may even include information and artifacts from other Spanish-speaking countries or impersonate someone who has made a historical contribution.  I know, without a doubt, students will do incredibly impressive work as they put together their project. In advance, I thank you for getting involved in this adventure with your students! IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAICE A CHILD!
