This project consists of a presentation of one hundred forty slides of people and their dress in three United States cities: Brattleboro, Vermont; Hartford, Connecticut; and New York City. A sixteen-minute audiotape of segments of interviews examining the significant factors influencing dress accompanies the slides. The material was developed to teach United States culture in the classroom, through presenting a wide range of people living in three northeastern cities. In order to work with students of different levels of English, the teacher has the option to show the presentation as a whole or to work with individual slides and segments of audiotape. Ideally, the creative teacher can use these materials to teach culture or to work in any of the four skill areas.
