Integrated Language Options (ILOs) constitute the core elements of the RCAH Cultures and Languages across the Curriculum Program. ILOs provide language immersion opportunities for students. In an ILO, students use the language to collaborate with each other and their language mentor on a semester-long project.
Spring 2016 topics and projects are listed below.
Exploring the cross-cultural role of music in people's lives (video) This short documentary examines the role of music in people's lives. RCAH students interviewed each other and also three participants from Latin America to explore the intersection between music, dance, and culture as both an art form and a way of seeing the world. Juwan Clarke, Jenny Crakes, Jackie Guzman, Katie Harger, Kristin McConnell, Taylor Peterson, Sadie Shattuck, Alexandra Stano, and Morgan Torre with Language Fellow Fredy Rodriguez-Mejia
imPACT of tolerance: Sharing small acts of tolerance to change our world (website) In this project, we define, analyze, and reflect on what creativity and tolerance are. As a result, we created a website. The goals of the website are to share our understandings of what tolerance is, to creatively inspire others to think about tolerance in their lives, and to learn from others about how to enact tolerance. An important component of the site is the PACTOs (Spanish acronym for Small Acts of Tolerance), examples of how Spanish speakers in different countries enact tolerance in small events in their daily lives. Jess Black, Maggie Devins, Ryan Roehler, and Krista Rodriguez with Language Fellow José Martinez-Hinestroza
Swahili: Understanding the bilingual education system in Tanzania (see poster image to the right) This Work in Progress looks at the nature of the education system in Tanzania and the language of instruction in the classroom. The student created a poster based on the structure and goals of the education system in Tanzania. Marie Kaniecki with Language Fellow Rose Mnzava
