SHELF Projects

SHELF (Second Half English Learning Fun) Projects

During the final eight weeks of the semester, students will work on different kinds of projects The goal is to use and/or produce audiovisual materials in a way that helps you learn English in fun, engaging ways.
Possibilities include:

 A Webcast Stream Team - produce segments for  live, public broadcasts
Podcasters  - similar to StreamTeamers, but not ‘live streamed’, video and public-posting optional.

Possible topics for webcasts and podcasts include:
‘This week in Korea’ news items, social issues, research projects, discussion topics,  book Clubs,  Movie/TV Show reviews and discussion show, sports talk, tech news, guest interviews

► Study group - selecting pieces of media which can be analyzed, discussed and from which learning materials can be created and posted. 
 Show producers - create you own ongoing dramatic soap opera, sketch comedy, reality show, or other kind of series.    Audio-only OK. Video OK.

 Other???  - If you have thoughts about other kinds projects you’d like to work on, we’re all ears!

Passivity is NOT an option!
These are not projects that you work on for several weeks and then unveil at the end of the semester.  These are projects for which you produce content each week and build over time. Some class time will be devoted to preparing and sharing these.
