PGSE 3103

Cultural Studies I

This course sequence is designed for students with no previous classroom instruction or functional ability in Portuguese, and little or no previous experience in another Romance Language. It is intended to expand the PGSE 3101 & PSGE 3102 courses, with a focus on the cultural manifestations that shape the Lusophone world today. The program integrates the teaching of language through formal classroom instruction in a cultural context that may include music, cinema, history, geography, literature, and the arts in general, as a means to build up vocabulary and reinforce language structures learned in the grammar class. Therefore, a systematic review of Portuguese grammar is included, especially during the first two weeks. Most students completing this course sequence will be able to read, interpret, analyze, and discuss simple texts that deal with cultural aspects and phenomena related to the Portuguese-speaking countries. As a result, they start developing their argumentative discourse, critical thinking, and the ability to express their opinion, many times relating topics to their own experience. As proficiency increases, they improve their presentational and interpersonal modes of communication.

Bibliography for PGSE 3103 will vary each year. Material will be provided by the instructors.
