Description

Audiences around the world are now enjoying media products of The Korean Wave, including the wide variety of K-Drama, movies, and K-Pop. K-Dramas are broadcast not only in South Korea, but also in Japan, China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Iran, Kuwait, UAE, all throughout North and South America, and parts of Africa, including Zimbabwe and Ghana. K-Pop music has fan followers from small, rural villages to ultra modern metropolises, literally spanning the globe. The six units in this newest series focus on The Korean Wave. Units 1, 2, and 3 provide a general history and overview of The Korean Wave as well as rich samples of K-Drama excerpts, like scripts and links to video clips, and activities to explore the discourse and compare and contrast cultural practices and products. Units 4, 5, and 6 document the history of K-Pop and provide an overview of this music genre, with a specific focus on two modern idol groups, BUZZ and EXO. Here you’ll find a robust sampling of news releases, fandom blogs, and song lyrics, also with links to selected music videos. The materials contain a variety of activities for students to explore and experience K-Pop song lyrics, fans’ reactions to their favorite groups, and bits of information on behind-the-scenes production and management operations. Like all of the units in our Discourse and Genre series, The Korean Wave units match the goals of the Korean National Standards and are designed for teachers and students to work toward increasing proficiency in the 5Cs, while working with a complex set of discourse-based materials and activities.

There will be 20 minutes of presentation time where you will hear about how their communities started and evolved, how people communicate and collaborate within the community, and how you can get involved in these communities or start your own. The rest of the hour is for you to ask questions, talk to presenters, and share information about your own communities.

Workshop
LaTeS: Genre Matters in Contextualized World Language

Genre Matters in Contextualized World Language Learning Francis John Troyan (Ohio State University) This workshop introduces participants to a genre theory and pedagogy that views spoken and written texts as genres that can be made visible and systematically taught to students. Participants will learn how to integrate genre into a backward design approach for the assessment and instruction of language that is centered on the development of the learner’s ability to communicate in written and spoken genres. Francis John Troyan, Assistant Professor of World Language Education at The Ohio State University, specializes in world language teacher development, genre and functional linguistics in K-12 world language education, and teacher practices in dual language immersion education. —————————— CERCLL’s biannual Language Teacher Symposium (LaTeS) is a professional development opportunity geared towards K12 educators. Registration is free. A certificate for Arizona Continuing Education is provided.

All LRCs
Previous LRC
Next LRC
In 1990, the Department of Education established the first Language Resource Centers (LRCs) at U.S. universities in response to the growing national need for expertise and competence in foreign languages. Now, twenty-five years later, Title VI of the Higher Education Act supports sixteen LRCs, creating a national network of resources to promote and improve the teaching and learning of foreign languages.

LRCs create language learning and teaching materials, offer professional development opportunities for language instructors, and conduct and disseminate research on foreign language learning. All LRCs engage in efforts that enable U.S. citizens to better work, serve, and lead.

8 Areas of Focus

Each LRC has a unique story and mission, but all LRC work is organized around eight basic areas:
  • Research
  • Teaching materials
  • Digital tools and resources
  • Assessment
  • Professional development
  • Less commonly taught languages initiatives
  • K-12 initiatives
  • Outreach and dissemination

You may also contact each LRC individually by locating their directory information in the Meet the LRCs menu.
