Students deepen their understanding of media and culture by evaluating and responding to how American culture is represented on television sitcoms. Through readings, discussions, presentations, and watching various shows students gain insight into the way TV portrays the culture and people of the U.S. Students specifically examine the representations of gender, race, ethnicity, family, sexual orientation, and politics while also viewing how these representations have evolved over the history of TV sitcoms. In the process, students also strengthen all aspects of their English language skills. Grading: A-F only. Restriction: English Language and Training Academy (ELTA) program.
