Cross-culture communication: When East meets West

This course explores some interesting cultural differences between Eastern and Western culture, such as, the way of showing emotions, interacting with each other, outlook of life, etc. Since Chinese is a dominant culture in Asia, this course will reflect more Chinese culture v.s Western culture. The course consists of interactive lectures, group discussions, and films. Students can gain a better understanding of the cultural differences in Asian and American experiences.

Cultures Around the World

This course will introduce students to the different cultures of the world to widen their perspective that is important in understanding people in a multicultural society. The students will have the chance to explore why people from different parts of the world behave and act differently through readings, video presentations, and class interactions. This will enable students to recognize their own distinct culture and in effect respect the differences that exist between and among people in the world. Issues and concerns on cultures that affect society will be further discussed.

Film and Genre Studies

In this class we focus strongly on improving student’s abilities to support their own ideas using evidence from the in‐class texts. We focus on using English to state an idea, and how to formulate evidence to make that idea a well‐supported and logical conclusion to reach from the film watched. Specifically, we look at what the ‘message’ of a film is to each individual student, and examine ways of using both film and narrative techniques (such as, character, dialogue, setting, and key themes) to make arguments supporting the student’s own ideas and understandings

Introduction to British and American Children’s Literature

Our first encounters with literature take place in childhood, a time filled with stories that range from songs, fairy tales, and bedtime stories to novels of fantasy, science fiction, and adventure. As children, the stories we hear become the life around us and help us learn our cultural and social norms. This influence is true of any language and culture but is especially true of English because it unites the wide-ranging English-speaking countries throughout the world.
