Preparing Future Faculty Seminar: International Students’ Perceptions of Classroom Metaphors, Similes, and More

Posted on 10/23/2017 11:39:43 AM

All graduate students are invited to take part in this Preparing Future Faculty seminar on Monday, October 30, 2017, from 3:30-5:00 p.m. in the HUB Allegheny Room.

Speakers: Select international undergraduate students from multiple disciplines

Description: This policy was as popular as a flooding “crick.” I seen (saw) that. What are “Youse” doing tonight? The Senators were acting “ignorant.” Some of your papers were as bad as the Cleveland Browns, but others comforted me like a “terrible towel.” We should take a class trip to “Hearts Content, Intercourse, and Bird in Hand.” While you are here, you should see “Falling Water.” Students go out all night then head to “Sheetz.” Is Lebanon a county or country, is Georgia a state or country, is Bethlehem in Pennsylvania or Palestine?

Often in the classroom, our examples can cause more confusion than clarity, especially to those who often are unfamiliar with Western Pennsylvania’s colloquial language. In this session, international undergraduates will focus on their experiences in the classroom and the community.

RSVPs are not necessary.

Refreshments will be provided!
