LYST 247 - Language, Discourse, and Cinema: Implications for Schooling


Semester Hours: 3


January
By examining a number of English-language films and television shows, students will explore American-language variation (accent, dialect, and second-language use) and other linguistic features (such as discourse communities and biculturalism) to learn more about the relationships between language, culture, identity, and learning, as well as to examine the ways in which film entertainment has shaped perceptions about different varieties of English. Course features an exploration in the pedagogical implications of these linguistic insights on language and literacy instruction in American schools.
