Requirements:



Please complete course enrollment through the department office with the consent of Professor Wang Jenn-Hwan(wangjh@nccu.edu.tw).



1, Participation: The assignments contain two parts: first, students have to submit a summary report on every week’s reading materials to the NCCU E-Learning Website one day before the class; the other is to bring the questions regarding the assigned reading materials to the class to facilitate discussion. The class assistant will show to the students how to do it in the first day of the class. If student is not able to attend the class, he or she has to report to the peofessor and let him know in advance.



2, Facilitation: This will require one of the students in the class to do the summary in each session of the three-hour class and to guide colleague students in understanding the assigned readings. This assignment (and who will do which week/s) will be discussed in the first week’s class.



3, Research paper: Students are required to submit a research paper up to 8000 words in the final week of the semester (exact date will be announced during our course works). Research topic (including a short abstract) and one page abctract should be submitted to the professor in the mid-term week.
