Korean-Culture-And-Language-small.mp4

Korean Culture and Language through Media (S2107)

Course Description

While the notion of literacy is traditionally considered as the ability to read and write, a growing number of research includes social dimensions to literacy, calling it ‘literacies’ in the plural form to highlight the multiple ways of using language within different types of social and cultural practices (Gee, 2010; The New London Group, 1996). Gee (2010) argues that the notion of literacy should be understood in its full range of contexts, not only cognitive dimensions but also social, cultural, historical, and institutional ones. Readers and writers are not just giving or receiving meanings or decoding words, but engaged in social and cultural practices of meaning making, involving ‘ways of acting, interacting, valuing, believing, and knowing, as well as often using other sorts of tools and technologies’ (Gee, 2010, p. 44). This course will explore Korean culture and language through various media resources, and aims to develop students’ literacies. Students will be able to develop their reading, listening, discussion, writing and also presentation skills through classes which will utilize various forms of media.
