Climate Change: Security, Ethics & Justice, Solutions
This Monterey Model class studies 3 broad topics: 1) climate change and local/national/global security (weeks 1-5), 2) CC ethics and justice (weeks 6-10), 3) adaptation, mitigations and solutions for CC (weeks 11-15).
A Monterey Model class associates several languages sections (English, French, Spanish) and TI students from the TI Practicum. During regular weeks, language students study climate change (CC) through the same topics (security ethics, solutions) in their respective target languages, at the same time in separate classrooms with their own professors. During the plenaries (in Irvine auditorium), (selected) students from the 3 language sections present and discuss their topics in their respective target languages (English, French, Spanish), while TI students under faculty supervision provide simultaneous interpretation (for students’ presentations and QA period).
During the plenaries, (selected) language students also act as MCs : They introduce and manage student speakers, coordinate with speakers and TI chief interpreters, trouble-shoot, keep time, etc. Professor Gueldry will compile the schedule for the plenaries based on all classes input through their respective professors. But during the plenaries in Irvine, selected students MCs from the three language sections are responsible for all activities and general flow.
In terms of linguistic proficiency skills, EAPP students should be at the Advanced Mid-to High level (ACTFL proficiency), FRLA and SPAN students Advanced Mid- to preferably High level.
