MetadataShow full metadata
This thesis looks at the functions of TED Talks as a pedagogical tool, and justifies their use in teaching today’s students. The thesis also proposes a potential curriculum for an Honors course at Texas State based on TED Talks. In addition to the course proposal, a full set of lesson plans, discussion questions, and assignments are provided to substantiate the course and support the assertion that TED Talks are a robust source of interdisciplinary content, capable of being the focus of a university Honors course.
