The Intercultural Classroom is a free, online resource for promoting intercultural competence in the language classroom. This report describes the project and its impetus. A review of the literature on intercultural competence explores definitions and research on the topic, the idea of “authentic” resources, and resources for implementing intercultural learning in the classroom. The methods section of this work describes how the project was completed with the hope that others might wish to replicate it in other places and with other languages. The discussion section of the report details the two main components of The Intercultural Classroom, Las Perspectivas, and Los Ojos. Finally, the report concludes with ideas for future research on the topic of intercultural competence.
