Week 4 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses.
Interlanguage Processes: Code Switching
Code Switching is essentially the process of adjusting your language use to a social situation. It is a key component in “getting along” in a social situation – at home, at work, talking with friends, meeting new people, etc.
View the video, What Matters – Code-Switching: Communication That Matters. Think about your own use of code switching. Describe three situations in which you use code switching, paying special attention to the social and language cues that cause you to do this. Be sure to evaluate the effectiveness in your code switching efforts.
Guided Response: Review and respond to at least two classmates’ posts. Provide a compare/contrast analysis between your use and your classmates’ uses of code switching. How are they similar? How are they different? What effect(s) could this have in a classroom setting? Also, be sure to respond to any questions from your instructor.
Carefully review the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate this Discussion Thread.
