In the beginning of my education at the American School of Communication Arts (ASCAP) I did my best to find classes that were relevant to my life. I began by doing a lot of research, learning about the different majors and specific programs available in my area. Once I was sure that my program and field of study was where I wanted to go, I began taking classes in hopes of making the right connections to the curriculum.
As a student at an ALCAP high school, the school has a very traditional curriculum. Students are asked to take a certain number of classes over a certain time period, usually five years. This means that for you to get a B.A., you’ll have to take a full five years of classes, and then pass the test again. This is not the case at Anoka because they’ve completely revamped their curriculum to be more focused on a more specialized area.
The changes were made in 2007 and have helped to make Anoka a high-achieving school. Students are no longer simply learning a class, but they are also learning about different areas of the curriculum and gaining the skills they need to go on to college. We also see this in Anoka’s new curriculum, which places a lot more emphasis on the importance of critical thinking, writing, and communication (among other skills).
The biggest change that Anoka has made to their curriculum is the elimination of all foreign language classes. In response to the increased demand for bilingual education at Anoka, the school has now added courses in Spanish, French, German, and Japanese. The school was originally founded as a high-school and only offered French and German classes, but it has gradually expanded to offer a wide variety of courses.
The teachers have been very responsive to the students’ language needs by offering courses in additional languages and more frequently. In fact, the school has recently begun offering courses in Russian, Chinese, and Esperanto.
I was surprised to learn that Anoka has students take courses in Spanish, French, and German. Some courses are offered in each language for students who wish to learn them later. I don’t think that’s a bad thing, and it’s good to have an option for students who have a strong interest in a particular language.
In the same vein, I think that the school needs to offer more classes in the various cultural sub-fields that are a part of the college. I personally love language and communication arts, but I think that my field of study is different from others, and I think that it would be good to have more classes and opportunities for students who want to pursue a career in those fields.
I’m not sure what “fields” you are referring to, but I agree that it would be good to have more classes in the various cultural sub-fields of the college. I think that my field of study is different from others, and I think that it would be good to have more classes and opportunities for students who want to pursue a career in those fields.
Most of us in the communications field will say yes when asked if we would like to have more opportunities to teach. What I have found is that most of us want to be more involved in our work, and we don’t realize how much of our time we spend doing it. So we get frustrated and feel like we’re wasting time. While our days are full of activity, we tend to be pretty busy.
Communication is one of those skills that gets under-utilized. It’s one of those things that if you practice it enough, you can do it well. So you should probably think about it more. But most of us don’t really bother to think about it.
