Readings: For the course assignments. You will all be reading Michael Agar's Language Shock as a shared text focused on the intersection between language and culture. This will provide you with a culture-centric view of how we use language to communicate, and embedded in our language is culture. We will build upon this socio-cultural foundation with readings from the field of Second Language Acquisition, TESOL and Cross-Cultural Communication. These readings will be provided for you via PDF.
Assignments: Everything is due according to the due date articulated on the Discussion Headline. Assignments will consist of readings, vide-based learning, field-based interviews and collaborative group-based exploration.
Technologies: In addition to the Ning, you will also learn to work with Prezi.com , familiarize yourself with it. Also download and familiarize yourself with bonfyreapp.com , which will use to stay connected in our course. Last, get to know Google Hangout , which we will occasionally use for online face-t0-face meetings between our physical class sessions.
