7G. American Language and Culture: Community Building, Engagement, and Transformation
ColWrit 7G. American Language and Culture: Community Building, Engagement, and Transformation
Improve your language skills while participating in the debate over what “community” means in the 21st century. People around the globe are confronting limitations to freedom, health, and safety. In this class, we will study real examples of how people across the United States and elsewhere are discovering and leveraging creativity and community as tools to confront problems. Students will engage with live speakers and video presentations, and practice speaking skills through discussion, debate, interviews, role play and presentations. The course also offers the opportunity to enhance your language skills in a real-life setting as you go outside the classroom and meet and learn from people who are engaged in work to improve their local neighborhoods.
