Request Description

Now that you have selected a global issue, it is time to determine a location that is currently being impacted by the issue.  Learning about the culture and the language of the people will give you a deeper understanding of the global issue.  The Ethnologue  website, Languages of the World, provides dialect maps of every geographic location around the world.  Using this website you can determine which mother tongue is spoken in the location the global issue you have chosen exists.  For example, if you selected the issue of global poverty in your Week Two assignment, you might focus on the “Price of being visible” in Bangladesh.  You would then select Bangladesh on the Ethnologue map and locate information about the mother tongue in Bangladesh.  

To complete this assignment you will:

  1. Use the Ethnologue  website, Languages of the World, to research the possible dialects that are spoken by children in the impacted area and write a description of each of those dialects.
  2. Identify one dialect or language from your target area that you will focus on for your Final Paper.
  3. Use the Ashford Online Library to locate resources that describe the language policy in the country you have chosen and provide a brief summary of the policy.  In your summary, include the following details:
    • Explain how one language may be preferred or discouraged over another.
    • Discuss how the rights of individuals or groups are established in order to use and maintain languages.
    • Identify any legislation, court decisions, or policies that determine how languages are used.
    • Describe how the necessary language skills are cultivated to meet national priorities in your target area.
    • Explain how the language impacts or addresses your chosen global issue.

This summary and description will help you determine how you can prepare for students who enter your classroom as English language learners.

Your summary and description should be no more than two pages long, in addition to a title and reference page.  Make sure to use proper APA formatting as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
