TA job description:
The job would include giving and grading quizzes and assignments, classroom assistance and monitoring, researching online information, maintaining class website, notifying students course information, reading materials and giving feedback, taking attendance and so on.
(1) Read novels in your own free time; divide a novel into several parts and commit to reading regularly. (2) Mobile use and lack of class materials including textbook, novels, handouts will cost 2 points each time. (3) Include info source (URL) for each piece of information used (articles/websites). (4) All works must be typed and provided in electronic forms. They should also be uploaded to the given websites for records. (5) Active extra learning max. 5% [Provide evidence of your active learning of English to earn your extra points.]
The class will be conducted entirely in English. The course employs a blended learning framework (face-to-face format) of foreign language learning experience (constructed through a series of individual and group tasks), which supports students’ personal learning goals and efforts. It engages students in active reading and speaking, with a minor portion of listening and writing, of materials about academic and cultural topics, and thus, prepare them for active interaction with others (and foreigners) and creative production of works in both oral and written forms.
