Teaching approaches include lecture, group discussions, individual and group presentations. Some foreign scholars will be invited to join class through skype.
1. Attend class, complete reading assignments, and participate in class discussions. This course has both discussion and lecture components. Teacher will give a lecture for the reading assignment first. The outline of the presentation will be prepared by teacher. Then each class will start with a discussion that focuses on the assigned readings and uses them to address larger questions. You are expected participate actively in these discussions. Question-posing to the class is especially encouraged, especially questions that may have no "right" answer. At the last period, students are required to present the discussion group by group. If the topic is complete, teacher will give an introduction on the topic at the last 15 minutes for the following week.
2. Group presentation: each student is required to present their discussion in turn each time. The presentation will be graded on the following element: fluency, content, group collaboration and being well-organized. Those who can’t reach the standard may be expected to try it once more next time.
3. Skype with foreign scholars: Some foreign scholars who specialize on the themes of the course will be invited to join class discussions and interact with students
Because this course relies so heavily on classroom participation and collaboration, it is essential to attend all classes. If it is necessary to miss a class, please notify the professor as far in advance as possible. However, you are expected to attend the class every week. Up to 4-hour excused absence is acceptable because of irresistible reasons. However, each one –hour excused absence will result in a one-point reduction of your final grade. But each unexcused absence will make lose three points of your final grade. More than 4-hour excused and unexcused absence will result in a failure of the course.
