|ENGL||1000||601||40713||John Hoppenthaler||Appreciating Literature - DE||online||This summer, ENGL 1000 surveys literary monsters! This course is designed to meet GC humanities requirements; it’s a basic class in reading, analyzing, enjoying, and appreciating imaginative literary texts. This summer, we’ll explore the literary concept of the monster through the classic novels Frankenstein (or the Modern Prometheus) by Mary Shelly, Dracula by Bram Stoker, and Grendel by John Gardner.||Frankenstein|

The ECU course guide will tell you the following: “Introduces past and present readings to enhance student’s enjoyment and understanding of literature." You can already see from the schedule of assignments that a study of the four literary genres (modules) is what you'll get from me. More specifically, you'll receive the tools that will enable you to first discover how a piece of literature works and then begin to get at its meaning. I am also interested in raising, as they become relevant, the questions associated with the role and social usefulness of literature. In other words, why should you learn to appreciate novels, stories, poetry and plays? What does literature have to do with the world we live in now?

|ENGL||2100||601||40723||Marc Petersen||Major British Writers (WI)||online||Magical realms, uncharted lands, and distant futures represent some of the imaginary worlds that populate English literature, and this course will explore writers' use of such devices for different effects, including adventure, romance, satire, and social commentary. We will examine texts representing a range of time periods and genres, including medieval poetry, Renaissance drama, Victorian prose, and modern comics.||Marie de France's "Lanval," Sir Thomas More's _Utopia_, William Shakespeare's _A Midsummer Night's Dream_, H.

|ENGL||2710||1||40725||Michael J. Aceto||English Grammar||online||This course is designed to give students an overview of the grammar (i.e. structure or syntax) of English, primarily standard written American English as well as related vernacular dialects. We will examine the “naturalness” of the standard and how it deviates from the everyday English that native speakers learned without instruction as children.|
|ENGL||2740||1||40726||Michael J. Aceto||Language in the USA||online||This course presents a linguistic perspective on the emergence of American English in North America, specifically within the context of the many languages heard in what is today called the United States as spoken by those persons involved in and affected by colonialism and immigration, both past and present. This course also discusses several varieties or dialects of American English. It also presents issues related to language usage, language variation, linguistic pluralism and its implications in the United States and its territories.|
|ENGL||2900||1||40727||Amanda A. Klein||Introduction to Film Studies||MW||06:00 pm-10:00 pm||The goal of this course, as its title suggests, is to “introduce” you to the broad field of film studies, including formal analysis, genre studies, film history and theory. By the end of the semester you will have the basic critical tools necessary for understanding and analyzing the language of motion pictures. Ideally, this course will enable you to not only gain a richer understanding of the films you watch but also the television shows, You Tube videos, commercials, and other media you encounter on a daily basis. This course is an excellent introduction to the humanities and a great choice for one of your required Foundations courses!||Casablanca (1942, Michael Curtiz), Touch of Evil (1958, Orson Welles), Breathless (1960, Jean-Luc Godard), The Virgin Suicides (1999, Sofia Coppola), The Bicycle Thieves (1948, Vittorio De Sica), Walk Hard (2007, Jake Kasdan)|
|ENGL||3260||601||40728||Gera S. Miles||African American Literature-WI||online||This course focuses on African American literature from different historical periods, emphasizing the twentieth century. It traces the development of African American literature from slavery to present and it includes works by male and female writers. We will study their use of literary conventions and discuss American history, sociology, and politics. Why? In order to examine the role of African-Americans and their literature in the United States, you have to see the forces that have influenced their works and understand the particular role the African-American writer serves in his or her community.||Black No More|

Video games do more than entertain us, and we will figure out together what that ‘more’ is. We will play and analyze video games, critique game playing strategies and understand if and how playing video games prepares students for college work.||James Paul Gee: What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and Literacy.

|ENGL||3850||601||40732||Liza A. Wieland||Introduction to Fiction Writing||online||This course is designed to introduce you to the short story form. Because it is a five-week summer course, we will be moving very quickly from readings to exercises to workshopping short stories of 1000-2000 words. You should expect to do at least three hours of work every day (including weekends). |
IMPORTANT: The stories you turn in for this class MUST be what is loosely called "realistic” or “literary” fiction: stories about characters who are real human beings, set somewhere that human beings have actually been, and with characters who can only do what real human beings can actually do. No genre fiction: horror, fantasy, westerns, romance, science fiction, no super heroes, no vampires or witches or spells-and-wands magic, no talking animals or plants. I will make exception for stories set in the not-too-distant future and stories in the tradition of magic realism, as exemplified by work like “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez (which is on the reading list).

In this course we will explore ethnicity and race in the United States by examining our own experiences as well as literary and scholarly explorations of the concepts. Our goal will be to develop a critical framework that will help us better understand our multicultural society. Questions we will consider include: What is race? What is ethnicity? How does ethnicity relate to race? What is Ethnic Studies? How are ethnicity and race perceived in America? What constitutes membership in an ethnic group? How have concepts of, policies toward, and treatment of ethnic groups changed over time? How do authors explore, express, extend and resist notions of ethnicity and race in literary, scholarly, and documentary works? How can considering these works help us understand better America’s past, present, and future? Our class will focus on ethnic representations such as African American, Asian American, Native American, Latino American and European. Our readings will examine and complicate the ethnic experiences of race, whiteness, immigration, gender, nationality and language in the United States.

How does such knowledge translate into day-to-day teaching practice? This course provides an introduction to the theories of second language acquisition (SLA) and their implications for second language teaching. Throughout the course, we will compare first and second language acquisition, and study the many factors (psychological, linguistic, and social) that influence the process of learning another language. ENGL 4710 provides meaningful knowledge of the multifaceted process of language learning for teachers in today’s multicultural classrooms, for language learners themselves, and for those interested in how we come to acquire languages. This course is appropriate for both pre-service and in-service teachers and is helpful to teachers seeking the add-on licensure in ESL. |
