Songs of Thorns and Flowers series V. 1: In The Tree
Print

Description

Volume One, In the Tree, includes select poems by Kim Hyung-Young, 2009 recipient of the Ku Sang Literature Award. The series explores the performativity of modern Korean poetic language in reading, interpretation, translation, and recitation. Songs challenges learners to examine the stylistic and linguistic devices employed to deliver the poet’s message, the combinations of form and content in the realm of poetics, and the lens modern Korean poetry provides into a larger understanding of Korean history and culture. Its bilingual design allows for multi-level and domain use, i.e., for both readers and non-readers of Korean, for both academic and general reading. For this pedagogical objective, the poems are accompanied wherever appropriate by supplementary explications, analyses, and requisite annotations on language use or critical approaches. The volume contains a companion video CD with interviews, poems, and spoken and sung recitation, with English subtitles.

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.
