ITAL 239 - Love & Pol in Ital Love Songs
The main objective of this course is to help students of Italian who have reached an advanced level of competence in the language, practice and refine their writing skills through intensive work on a variety of culturally significant texts both from literature and the mass-media. The focus of the course is on the analysis and then the production of different types of texts and therefore students will be exposed to different genres: from literary narrative texts, to argumentative and informative texts taken from Italian newspapers and periodicals, to formal and informal letters. In the second part of the course, they will read and discuss the novel Io non ho paura and see its movie version. In parallel with reading and writing, students will review basic grammar through specific language exercises. Students will produce different types of texts: descriptive, argumentative and informative and will write both in individual and dyadic formats. Most of the writing will be done at home, but there will be also in class writing. The course will provide good practice and cultural input for students planning to continue the study of Italian in more advanced literature, and culture courses, as well as, for a study abroad experience in Italy.
