Walsh University Undergraduate Catalog 2013-2014
SPAN 308-2 Readings in Spanish for Health Care 3 sem. hrs.
The course objective is to study, through the use of fiction and non-fiction texts written or translated into Spanish, the way physical pain, illness and suffering have been made into narrative, poetry, pathoautobiography (autobiography of illness), film, music and visual art. We will study the perspectives of patients, nurses, doctors, caregivers, family members, writers, artists, philosophers and theologians in regard to physical pain and suffering. In addition the student will develop the ability to read, think, converse, and write critically about literary works from diverse points of view and cultures; analyze different examples of “illness narratives”; and engage in effective verbal and written discourse about literature and other art and media forms. The student will learn appropriate skills of effective research, reading, writing, oral communication, individual and collaborative reflective practice, and implementation of technologies for higher-order learning and mature understanding of the diverse types of texts. Prerequisites: SPAN 301-2 or placement. Next Offered F-13, F-15.
