ENGH 300: Literature for Community

This class aims to enhance students’ cross-cultural communication and leadership skills through literature-centered community engagement activities.  Students will spend the beginning weeks reading and discussing literary texts and planning various literature-based group activities.  Then, students will participate in literature-centered community engagement projects, off campus, for several weeks.  In the final weeks, drawing upon the weekly journals of their activities, students will write a short narrative about the experiences and lessons learned. This will help students create stories that can be included in their job portfolios and/or presented during interviews.

This semester, students will participate in the literature-centered cultural exchange project run by the Incheon Office of Education.  In this project, a mixed group of university students (half Korean and half international students) visits schools in the inner city (원도심, won-do-sim) to lead a communal reading of literature and literature-based activities.  On completion of the project, students who have fully participated in the project will be given monetary awards by the Incheon Office of Education.  This is a valuable opportunity for students.  For students from Fairfax, this will give students a rare opportunity to have a highly credible on-ground experience in Korean society. 

This is an enrollment-controlled course.  Because the community engagement activities are official programs run by the government, the seats are limited.  If interested, please contact Professor Hyunyoung Cho at Mason Korea.

ENGH 300-K01 enrollment is controlled. Please contact Professor Hyunyoung Cho (hcho23@gmu.edu) for permission to register.
