There Remain Words to Say


This is the second volume of Songs of Thorns and Flowers: Bilingual Performance and Discourse on Modern Korean Poetry Series (2010- ), a pedagogical approach to modern Korean poetry for college-level studies of Korean language and literature. Volume Two, "There Remain Words to Say," features 35 translated poems of the 2010 Ku Sang Poet Laureate Yoo An-Jin. Reading poetry exposes the learner to the art of performativity in Korean language and culture. To make visible the rhetorical and semantic transfer from Korean to English, the original and the translated poems are laid side by side. Not only will learners of Korean benefit from the book but also Korean learners of English can observe how the nuances of poetry and language get translated from Korean to English. In order to give readers a stronger appreciation of the poet’s expressiveness, a section entitled “Replace with the poet’s words in Korean” is provided for most of the poems. Under the section “Discuss,” suggestions are given to stimulate discussion and further exploration. Historical explanations and annotations on language use are provided where appropriate. The included companion DVD features video interviews with the poet and audio recitations.

Developing, using, and analyzing rubrics in language assessment with case studies in Asian and Pacific languages


Rubrics are essential tools for all language teachers in this age of communicative and task-based teaching and assessment—tools that allow us to efficiently communicate to our students what we are looking for in the productive language abilities of speaking and writing and then effectively assess those abilities when the time comes for grading students, giving them feedback, placing them into new courses, and so forth. This book provides a wide array of ideas, suggestions, and examples (mostly from M?ori, Hawaiian, and Japanese language assessment projects) to help language educators effectively develop, use, revise, analyze, and report on rubric-based assessments.

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
