The goal of this course is to take an in-depth look at some of the ways language can affect a person and how they identify. Throughout the course you will explore how language interacts with both personal and national identity and how language can both be used to promote and possibly suppress one’s identity. You will investigate these themes and develop both critical thinking and language skills through presentations, group discussions, and written essays.
Heroes and Heroines are reoccurring figures in myths throughout the world. This course explores both how heroism and individuals who exhibit it are presented/regarded in society and the possible negative or positive effects of heroism overall. You will choose an aspect of heroism you find interesting and write a research paper to expand on it. Your linguistic, critical thinking, and academic skills will develop throughout the research process.
