Course Description (as in the catalogue):

The course’s emphasis is on developing English reading skills from various resources. The course also includes English terms as well as the issues related to the field of family life sciences and education.

Course Philosophy:

Being the only English-based course provided by the department of Home Economics Education (H.E.E) to the graduate students, the aim is two folds; the first is to explore the nature of home economics education as presented in the English-based informational resources. Secondly, such exploration would implicitly help students develop English skills as they read, listen, and speak about these resources in English. Moreover, instructor will use English language, as much as possible, to deliver the content of this course. Thus, this course involves the integration of the subject matter (what to talk about) and linguistic matter (how to talk about it) for the purpose of accomplishing the course objectives outlined below.

Although , written texts are the dominant format of the learning materials, audio and visual resources related to home economics education are also explored. The learning environment respects the individual differences as well as the students social and intellectual needs by operating a verity of teaching and evaluation methods and strategies. Even though different teaching methods are implemented (such as cooperative learning, lectures, dialogue, mastery learning, reciprocal teaching, and educational games), self-learning strategy is on the top due to the nature of this course. Moreover, class activities would range from structured daily assignment to fully independent group activities/projects.

To better assess the process and the product of the students' performance, a variety of evaluation methods are used, such as self and peer evaluation as well as instructor evaluation focusing on summative and formative evaluation models. Students are assessed through open-reflection strategy in addition to rubrics developed by the instructor, the student, or both.

 

Course Objectives:

This course will:

1       enrich the students' awareness about locating and utilizing H.E.E English-based informational resources,

2       develop the students' reading skills as they relate to reading styles.

3       help students develop critical thinking skills as they interact with the learning materials, and

4       increase the students' appreciation as well as competencies of communicating in English.

1-    show evidence in locating desired H.E.E. English-based resources,

3-    show comprehension of audio/visual H.E.E. English-based resources, and
