Language Race and Ethnicity in the U.S and its Territories

Language Race and Ethnicity in the U.S and its Territories

This course explores historical, cultural, and theoretical perspectives on the relationship between language, race, and ethnicity in the United States and its territories. It examines how language is understood to reflect, reproduce, and/or challenge and defy racial and ethnic boundaries, and how ideas about race and ethnicity influence the ways in which people use and construe language. It covers topics such as racialization and racism, ethnicization, notions of authenticity, repertoire, codeswitching and style shifting, linguistic mocking and linguistic racism, language ideology, and identity formation. This course will examine language varieties such as Black American English and its cross-racial uses by other groups, Chicano English and Spanglish, Asian American English, Hawaiian English, and American Indian English.

ACR 150 | Literacy in American Society | Course Hub

ACR 150 | Literacy in American Society | Course Hub

What is your definition of literacy? Literacy in American Society asks students to investigate the varieties of literacy behaviors in American society as sociocultural phenomena. Students will be exposed to the research of major scholars in the interdisciplinary field of literacy research (e.g., New Literacy Studies) as a means of considering the role literacy and literacy behavior plays, both historically and in a contemporary context, in a diverse American society. Students will analyze the various definitions of literacy and track the development of multiple literacies in American society, specifically studying the transmission of literacy as a cultural value, particularly in oppressed communities. The course will provide the students with the opportunity to analyze and reflect on their personal relationship with literacy and opportunities for upward mobility in a stratified United States.

Interactive Lessons of Critical Issues in Justice: OER Creation Project | BMCC Criminal Justice Prog

Interactive Lessons of Critical Issues in Justice: OER Creation Project | BMCC Criminal Justice Prog

The BMCC Criminal Justice Program has approximately 2,500 students majoring in the discipline. Criminal justice majors are required to complete the course, Criminal Justice and the Urban Community, CRJ 204, to earn the Associate of Arts (A.A.) Degree. Historically, the CRJ Program offered on average seven (7) sections designated as OER/Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC). Approximately 27 sections of CRJ 204 are offered, annually (Spring-15, Summer-3, Fall-9). On average, 400 students enroll in these sections each semester and more than 800 students per academic year. CRJ 204 students apply the culmination of their learning, knowledge, and skills from their social science courses by critically analyzing complex, yet culturally relevant, social issues and conduct an original research study. To note, the interactive lessons inclusive of the proposed project are appropriate for implementation in other CRJ and social science courses.
