Dear linguistics instructors,
Robin Queen and I are undertaking a ''teaching and learning'' research
project to assess the use of mass media clips in teaching linguistics
classes here at the University of Michigan. In designing our project we
thought it would be informative to elicit responses about instructors'
broader use of such materials. If you use mass media clips/excerpts (from
movies, TV shows, etc.) in teaching for your linguistics courses, and you
have a few minutes to share your thoughts on the questions listed below, we
would be most grateful.
Please reply to me (lsquiresumich.edu). I can later write a summary of
responses for the list. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions!
Many thanks for your time,
1) Which courses do you tend to use mass media clips for?
2) What are your pedagogical goals in using this type of material? How
useful do you find the material in meeting these goals?
3) How do you find that media clips relate to student engagement with
4) What is the format in which students typically interact with this
material (in class on a projector; posted online as homework; etc.)?
5) How do you locate, collect, and/or store this material?
Linguistic Field(s): Discipline of Linguistics; General Linguistics
