EAPP 8385 is a course open to international students interested in honing their English skills while learning about key intercultural concepts and integrating these tools into their repertoire. Students will study and research cultural issues of race, religion, language, and power in the United States while reflecting on these issues in their native cultures. Students can expect to work on their speaking and listening skills through formal presentations and informal engagements (interviews and discussions) inside and outside the classroom. In addition, reading and writing skills will be developed through weekly reading response journals requiring summary and critical analysis skills. A final project allows an autobiographical, multimedia approach to the topic of identity and culture. This format is designed to increase our exposure to multiple ideas and perspectives.
