Critical Cultural Analysis
In the Critical Cultural Analysis, a major course project in APLNG 804 (Focus on Learners), I critically analyzed the following cultural exploration activities, which allowed me to understand the similarities and differences among and between cultures, consider how culture influences language learning and teaching, and examine how my understanding of these important issues has influenced my own language teaching practice.
- My own cultural autoethnography
- A cultural biography of an English language learner (ELL)
- A cultural biography of an English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher
These learning activities culminated in a self-narrated Critical Cultural Analysis presentation and a written essay and reflection paper, in which I synthesized what I learned during the course, the cultural exploration activities and my own thoughts and experiences.
