|科目名||INTENSIVE READING ＆ WRITING Ａ|
|The goal of this course is to develop students' ability in reading and summarizing articles in English, expressing opinions about them orally and in writing, increasing vocabulary, giving presentations, and asking and answering questions in English.|
|This course will focus on reading articles on current topics and will be conducted entirely in English. Each week students will choose an article from an English newspaper or magazine or from the Internet, then write a report on the topic, including vocabulary, to be turned in. Students will give a presentation on one of their topics periodically to the class. The reports and presentations may be on any topics the student chooses, but they must be done in English. After a student's presentation, other students will ask questions and we will have discussion of the topic. This course will help you improve your ability in reading, writing, speaking and listening to English, as well as increase your knowledge and understanding of various topics and develop your presentation skills.|
|Students will need to spend 2 hours in preparation of weekly reports and another 1-2 hours in preparation for presentations.|
|Grades will be based on attendance and participation in class (30%), weekly reports (30%), presentations (30%), and a final report (10%).|
