  • Group logo of SPA 114– ELEMENTARY SPANISH 2
    Public Group / 1 member
    active 1 day, 10 hours ago

    A beginning course with emphasis on elements of grammatical structures and practice in reading, writing and oral exposition. Bienvenidos a la clase. Spanish 114 is the second level of a course designed for bilingual or Spanish heritage students to allow these students to obtain and develop the necessary skills to communicate in standard or academic Spanish. Spanish 114 is designed for students who have been reared in a Spanish-speaking environment and speak or understand some Spanish as a result of having heard it in the home and community by parents or grandparents, family, friends, and neighbors.

    The class objective is to build upon the language base you already possess and to teach literacy in Spanish. The Spanish you bring into the classroom is not viewed as a “bad” form of Spanish, which must be eliminated or incorrect, but rather is considered an extremely valid means of oral communication. All four skills; listening, speaking, reading, and writing will be enhanced throughout the course by including the cultural and historical background shared by students. With this knowledge, you will have a better understanding of Spanish and will be able to reaffirm your pride in your heritage and culture.

    More specifically, Spanish 114 emphasizes the acquisition of reading and writing. Assignments will focus on building vocabulary and basic orthographic skills, and strengthening knowledge of grammatical structures. By the end of the semester you should be able to read stories and magazine articles, write compositions, and converse in terms of a conversation. In this course you will participate in various activities and related exercises designed to enrich the fou […]

  • Group logo of Research with Children and Youth
    Private Group / 7 members
    active 5 days, 15 hours ago

    This seminar is designed for students who have identified a research question involving children, childhood or youth and who wish to explore alternative ways of conceptualizing it and investigating it. It is designed in line with the growing interdisciplinary field of child and youth studies. Students from psychology, the social sciences, education and the humanities are invited to participate. Seminar participants may be at the very earliest conceptualizing their work and even still defining their question or they may already be in the process of designing methods, or they may even be at the stage of interpreting their findings and see the potential value of gaining perspective from other disciplines. We will rotate discussion around each participant’s developing research and work collectively to interrogate it from the perspective of different disciplines. Even when we believe that we have clarity about our research there is value in thinking about it from across disciplines. This may result in enriching the research by combining different disciplinary perspectives within a single study or even transcending disciplinary knowledge through a new integration of theory. Either way, it is likely to deepen our research endeavor.

    An additional component of the seminar will be to ask how our research might be differently conceptualized given different possible audiences and end goals, including research that is primarily focused on theory-building, on influencing policy or on action and more immediate change. Again, this is based in the belief that a research project need not be limited to only one of these orientations. Throughout the course the seminar participants will share written commentaries with one another as we explore alternative perspectives on research questions and what this might mean for the design of t […]
