    • OBJECTIVE
      • The purpose of the course is to encourage students to negotiate and resist cultural codes to bring about more democratic and personally humane, economic, social, and political arrangements.
    • CODES AND CRITIQUES
      • Students are guided to reflect on their experiences with cultural codes they encounter on a daily basis. They examine cultural codes embedded in texts drawn from six thematic units:
      • 1. Advertising
      • 2. Work
      • 3. Play
      • 4. Education
      • 5. Gender
      • 6. Individuality
      • Does anyone teach any of the following thematic units? What literature do you use within that unit?
    • QUESTIONS
      • How do you make your students aware of cultural codes in your classroom?
      • In what ways do you allow your students to reflect and share their personal experiences?
    • CODES AND CRITIQUES
      • Within the six units students examine a variety of:
      • Texts
      • Films
      • Television Programs
      • "The important consideration here is not only the texts in themselves, but the texts in relation to certain methods of interpreting them" (Berlin, 1996).
    • Examples in Article
      • “ The Days of a Cowboy Are Marked by Danger, Drudgery, and Low Pay” by William Blundell (Essay from Wall Street Journal)
      • Family Ties and Roseanne (Television Sitcoms)
      • Other People’s Money & Roger and Me (Films)
    • FAMILY TIES & ROSEANNE
    • GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS
      • VENN DIAGRAM DOUBLE ENTRY JOURNAL
    • WRITING ACTIVITY
      • In essay form, students will write the effect of an important cultural code on their lives.
      • “ Students select the topic and content of the essay, but they do so within the context of the larger theme of each unit” (Berlin, 1996).
