For this assignment, you will explore and critically interact with linguistic or language acquisition theory.
First, choose a topic related to these categories (suggestions below): a current or seminal/significant article, a school of linguistic theory, an approach to language acquisition, or an influential linguistic or development theorist. For example if you are primarily interested in pedagogy, you may wish to look at an article about a practical approach to language acquisition in the classroom. If you are more interested in linguistic theory, you may choose to research the transformational/generative school of linguistics or an article by Noam Chomsky.
After completing your research, you will create a multimedia presentation in which you will summarize and analyze this topic. Remember to connect your presentation to the course and to be creative! Your presentation should have both audio and video elements, such as a video presentation, a narrated Powerpoint, or a Web site with embedded video.
