CORE 003 SC - Foreign Language and Culture Teaching Clinic


This course will explore the notion of culture, its representation and relativity, and its inextricable correlation with foreign language acquisition. In contrast to the common view that language is universal, the class will examine the cultural embeddedness and diversity of language in each of its language communities. In a practicum, students will team-teach a self-designed foreign language and culture mini-curriculum to elementary school pupils. They will also be challenged to instill tolerance in their charges as they present to them a new linguistic and cultural "history of the present."

Prerequisite(s): Native fluency, or completion of or enrollment in an upper-division course (numbered 100 or higher) in the chosen language. Students may teach any of the following: Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish, or any other language proposed by at least two native speakers. Instructor permission is required, and permission will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis.
Course Credit: 1.0
