This course is lis a continuation of last semester’s ITB1002 course. We will use some of the same tools and methods, but there will also be a few changes. There will be additional opportunities for feedback and analysis of writing tasks and recorded conversations. Additionally, some of the topics covered will be chosen and developed by class members.
Class members will take turns being a 'Topic Host.' As such, each of you will prepare materials on some topic of interest and/or relevance to your learning goals. This can include current events, social issues, academic subjects, general interest knowledge, or work-related matters.
In class, the topic host will provide a short introduction/overview of the topic and prepare materials, vocabulary, and discussion questions that will be covered in class and/or written about after class. Topic Overview Introductions will be audio or video recorded so that they can be analyzed by the presenter and Jeff. The introduction should not last longer than five minutes. You can use visual aids if you like, but please do not read a ppt. We will plan to spend 40-50 minutes of class time going over the material and discussing the topic.
By the Saturday before your topic, please share your tentative plans and materials with Jeff. Feel free to include Jeff’s input or output in any meaningful way.
During Week#2 and Week#3, Jeff will be the ‘Topic Host’. Class members will start hosting after the Chuseok break.
By popular demand, there will be more ‘opportunities’ for writing tasks, feedback, and analysis. A ‘GSIT2018 -ITB 1003’ Google Drive folder has been shared with each of you and inside you will find a subfolder with your name. Please create Google Docs in those folders for each writing task.
Write at least 300 words about different parts of your identity. Please use a Google Doc in your ITB1003 folder. When finished copy and post the text or a link to your Google Doc to your class band. Feel free to include related photos. Jeff's Example)
