ESL 035 American Culture III
A higher level of language production is expected of the students as they explore themes of American culture. Students give presentations related to pieces of American culture using pertinent technology. Service learning is conducted at local destinations such as convalescent homes and public schools to better understand culture within these places and increase students’ sense of global citizenship, and students in this course take a leadership role on these service learning trips. Field trips focused on American culture and history are frequently taken to give students practical exposure and experience. Students are required to participate in at least one club for full involvement and integration into campus life. At times, guest speakers visit the classroom to shed light on any given topic related to American culture and history.
