Cíle předmětu
This is a seminar/discussion course where students will follow current events in the English language media and bring selected articles to summarize and present in class where they will compare, contrast and analyze the differing points of view in open conversation around the table. News sources will include both print and electronic and will be considered not only according to their nationality and political bias, but also according to their targeted readership (e.g. tabloid/broadsheet, Fox/BBC).
Výstupy z učení
As developing teachers, the students will hone their speaking and listening skills, expand their vocabulary and familiarity with idiomatic language and journalistic discourse types, as well as assess cultural differences within English speaking lands. By discussing the same event as reported in various news sources, students will also appraise media - develop a critical eye as consumers of English, becoming better able to distinguish hidden or implied bias. By participation in the weekly "round table" discussions, and especially in the group presentations, students will have an opportunity to develop their spoken fluency in group situations.
Attendance, preparation, participation in class discussion and group presentations are the major credit requirements for this course.
  • While the exact curriculum will be determined by what is in the news each week in English-speaking lands, and is therefore impossible to codify, it is highly probable that discussion will center around reportage on subjects such as: Globalization and economy, Terrorism, Race relations and cultural clashes, Environment and global warning, Middle East conflict, Religion and fundamentalism, Immigration and third world development, Education, Social welfare and poverty, Politics, Gender

Výukové metody
Students analyze certain aspects of the media's handling of current events (eg. headlines, objectivity, bias, citizen journalism, etc.) and then apply those criteria in their search of the media's treatment of that week's current events. They then bring their findings to the class where they present and discuss them either in small groups or in open conversation around the seminar table. Class meetings are supplemented with regular use of on-line news sources.
Metody hodnocení
85% Attendance, weekly media research and preparation, full participation in class discussion. Two group presentations are also required for credit for this course.
