Study Abroad on Campus SAB201-A/B
an intensive CLIL course for sophomore students at MIC who are staying on campus in the fall term
This content of this course is offered in tandem with a real-time, fall-semester class at MIC, and is not ideal for learners who are not studying at the institution. Materials are only available when the course is in session, and much content is only revealed in stages.
This sophomore CLIL course explores the theory of geographic determinism; the idea that the differences between societies and societal development arise primarily from geographical causes. This theory supports the idea that the transfer of technologies, knowledge, and diseases gave western Eurasian peoples an advantage over the native peoples of the Americas, Africa, and the Pacific islands rather than biological, genetic, or racial differences.
Through reading, writing, and discussion surrounding this theme, students will develop their English language skills. Students will be required to regularly summarize and/or paraphrase orally and in writing what they have read and watched (video), and to produce digital artifacts (recordings, written work, etc.) as evidence of their comprehension, analytical skills, ability to synthesize information, and ability to think critically.
