Students watch a video from Youtube, illustrating a busy daily schedule of a Korean international student who could not even eat properly due to exams and class assignment. After watching the video, they respond to questions on a worksheet based on the video they have watched.
Students compare/contrast their own daily schedule with the one from the video.
UCLA Student Clubs
In case, students are not participating in a student club and don't know which one to contact, the instructor has provided a short list of student clubs that have contact information.
The list is based on the website information from Student Affairs Office.
Peer Feedback and Self-Reflection
After each group presents a promotional video, learners will assess the final product and provide comments based on the rubric. They will also reflect on their project process and outcome and share their ideas with the class.
Formative Assessment: Interview Questions
As a formative assessment, students submit their questions to ask Korean native speakers using Google Doc. The instructor provides them with feedback on language, e.g., accuracy and clarity. Students then revise their questions and conduct interviews.
As a group, learners interview Korean native speakers in Korean and a student club leader in English. Each task is assessed according to the criteria of the rubric provided prior to the interviews.
Learners submit an audio file and summaries of interviews using Google Drive. Learners can choose to video-record their interviews with the consent of interviewees.
They can use their smart phone or an audio/video recording tool from the course website.
For one class session, students will discuss and write the outline of their promotional video with assistance of the instructor, when necessary. Outside of the classroom, they will complete the script and submit the 1st draft using Google Doc. The script will be assessed according to the criteria of the scoring rubric provided at the beginning of the project. The instructor will provide written feedback and scores using Google Doc.
Presentation of a Promotional Video
Each group of learners presents a promotional video in class, which will be assessed by the instructor and peers based on the rubric provided at the beginning of the project.
Students may use various programs to edit their video, e.g., iMovie, Windows Movie Maker, Adobe Pro, etc.
