I have a question for those TEFL teachers in Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana and SA-

namely if given the instructions by the school administrators to include in your lesson plan, readings from the culture of your host countries what would you include? I am seeking a short list of songs, poetry, literary readings that would give a small sample of the cultural interests of various countires around the globe.
