Teaching Methods
Teaching Assistant
Requirement/Grading

Teaching approaches include lecture, group discussions, individual and group presentations.



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.



3. Individual presentation: Each student is required to make a final presentation about paper concept development and journal selection



The course will be graded based on the following criteria:




  1. Class discussions (30%). Contributions in class should reveal a substantial familiarity with assigned readings, a capacity to analyze the issues and problems under group discussion, and an ability to incorporate, synthesize, and constructively criticize the comments of classmates.

  2. Paper / Questions presentations (30%). For any one of the assigned papers, make a presentation according to topics or questions raised



3. Final individual presentation (40 %). 20 min presentation followed by a 3000-word paper
