Check out our MLANG courses for the Fall 2022 semester

 

MLANG 280 (14031): TV Around the World  MWF 9:30 - 10:20 a.m. Streaming platforms like Netflix and Hulu give us unprecedented access to content from around the world. Limiting our viewing to only English-language content means missing out on a whole world of great films and television. In this first year seminar, we will learn the nuts and bolts of watching television, explore the world of television from a range of cultures and contexts, and discuss how recent changes in technology and platform have affected our viewing practices. (Note: This course is a First Year Seminar.)   MLANG710 (11525)- Foreign Language Pedagogy  TU 3:55 - 5:10 p.m. How do individuals learn a second language? What can we, as teachers, do to facilitate this process? In this course, students will develop a knowledgeable, well-rounded teaching persona by examining theories of learning, critical pedagogies, applied linguistics, and approaches to language learning. Throughout the semester, students will compile a teaching portfolio that effectively communicates their beliefs and practices in the modern language classroom through analysis and development of language activities, assignments, and assessments to think critically and creatively about engaging students in language learning.
