Grading System:
Max. Enrollment: 5
Meeting Times: TBD
This project provides an immersion experience in Spanish. Students will
live with a Hispanic family in Spain or Latin America and take daily classes
in conversation, grammar, and culture. The experience offers excellent
preparation for further study of Spanish. Students will be evaluated by the
language instructors of the school where they choose to study.
NOTE: Because this is an independent study project, details must be arranged
well in advance. Price varies depending on the program chosen. Previously,
students have chosen programs in Costa Rica, Ecuador, Venezuela, and
Argentina. See instructor for details.

Audition! is intended to give students the opportunity to put together a
compete “book” of audition monologues and songs, while studying Joanna
Merlin’s book
Auditioning: An Actor Friendly Guide
. Class work will
consist of discussions of the text, presentation of monologues and songs,
response from the class, the instructor, and guest respondents, and cold
readings of audition material. The goal for each student will be to find her/
his “type” and how that type can be enhanced through appropriate material
selection. Students will work with the instructor to select monologues and
songs. Outside of class, students will be expected to learn their material and
rehearse it in such a way that in-class work is not about memorization and
the most basic preparation. Students are expected to be familiar with GOTE
method of acting taught inTha 120, Beginning Acting. The end of the termwill
culminate in a presentation of some of the work from the month. Evaluation
will be based on attendance, out-of-class preparation, in-class presentation
and individual growth.

Working around the theme of
Los Hispanos en los Estados Unidos
, the
objective of this class is to provide a transition for students who have taken
Spanish 201 or 220 but are insecure about their abilities to use the language
to converse. Conducted entirely in Spanish, this class will provide the
students with the opportunity to practice their conversational skills in a low-
stress setting. In this course, we will use movies, music, internet research
and other
from the Spanish-speaking world as a point of departure
for conversation. In addition, students will write weekly reflection temas
in Spanish on the material discussed in class. Each student will also make
several short, thematic presentations in Spanish during the course of the
term. We will enjoy presentations by native speakers and field trips around
Birmingham to explore the resources available to the growing Spanish-
speaking population, as well as places of interest to those studying Spanish.
On our final class meeting, we will prepare food reflecting the cultures we
have studied. Evaluation will be based on class participation, temas and a
final oral presentation.
NOTE: A course fee of $30 will be charged to the student’s BSC account to
cover shopping expenses for the meal and speakers.
