Jamila Lyiscott is a “tri-tongued orator;” in her powerful spoken-word essay “Broken English,” she celebrates — and challenges — the three distinct flavors of English she speaks with her friends, in the classroom and with her parents. As she explores the complicated history and present-day identity that each language represents, she unpacks what it means to be “articulate.”

About the speakerAnne Curzan · Language historian English professor Anne Curzan actually encourages her students to use slang in class. Language historian Anne Curzan gives a charming look at the humans behind dictionaries, and the choices they make. English professor Anne Curzan actually encourages her students to use slang in class. A language historian, she is fascinated by how people use words—and by how this changes. One could argue that slang words like ‘hangry,’ ‘defriend’ and ‘adorkable’ fill crucial meaning gaps in the English language, even if they don't appear in the dictionary.

This subject is the second semester of four that forms an introduction to modern standard Chinese, commonly called Mandarin. The emphasis is on further developing students' abilities to participate in simple, practical conversations on everyday topics as well as enhancing their abilities on reading and writing. The relationship between Chinese language and culture and the sociolinguistically appropriate use of language will be stressed throughout. A typical class includes performance of memorized basic conversations, drills, questions and discussion, and various types of communicative exercises. At the end of this course, students are expected to develop an understanding of the language learning process so that they will be able to continue studying effectively on their own.

This course is designed to provide an understanding of how the human brain works in health and disease, and is intended for both the Brain and Cognitive Science major and the non-Brain and Cognitive Science major. Knowledge of how the human brain works is important for all citizens, and the lessons to be learned have enormous implications for public policy makers and educators. The course will cover the regional anatomy of the brain and provide an introduction to the cellular function of neurons, synapses and neurotransmitters. Commonly used drugs that alter brain function can be understood through a knowledge of neurotransmitters. Along similar lines, common diseases that illustrate normal brain function will be discussed. Experimental animal studies that reveal how the brain works will be reviewed. Throughout the seminar we will discuss clinical cases from Dr. Byrne's experience that illustrate brain function; in addition, articles from the scientific literature will be discussed at each class.

Abstract: This study aimed to examine the effects of inclusion on the language development of hearing-impaired
students (HIS) from the perspectives of parents and teachers. To achieve the objectives of the study, a Language
Development Estimation List was designed that consisted of two main dimensions: receptive language (25 items)
and expressive language (31 items). A descriptive-comparative research approach was used to examine the
differences between the teachers’ and parents’ assessments of students’ language levels according to their
educational settings (special schools for deaf students or inclusive schools). This study included a purposive sample
of 41 teachers and 113 parents. The teachers’ assessments showed higher receptive language scores and total scores
for the inclusive school students. However, the results of the parents’ assessments showed no statistically significant
differences between the students at the inclusive school and those at the school for the deaf with respect to expressive
or receptive language abilities. That is, the inclusion effect remains less than desired.
