ESL 090E American Cultural Studies for English Language Learners

In this workshop course, non-native English speakers at high-intermediate to advanced levels develop vocabulary and grammar while learning about subject-matter content related to US culture, government, and the Constitution as they play out in the everyday lives of Americans. Key aspects of the course involve listening to lectures and reading texts that reveal different perspectives on US culture. Students in this course are required to keep a weekly reflective journal, complete quizzes and written summaries of lectures and readings, as well as deliver a final oral presentation.
