評量方式及評分標準 Class time will be devoted to activities that allow students to practice and interact in English. To successfully complete the course, students must prepare the assigned homework prior to class and, while in class actively participate in class discussions and pair/group work. Students’ final grades are determined by the following course components:
 
Ÿ Participation (attendance, homework, and class work): 20%
Ÿ Individual presentation: 30%
Ÿ Final group presentation: 30%
Ÿ Reading/Listening Response Test: 20%
 
Participation
Your participation grade will be based on your attendance, homework preparation, and the contribution you make to the learning experience of others. Contribution includes your in-class questions to the instructor, insights and comments regarding class content, answers to the instructor’s questions, and reactions to other students’ contributions. Students will be expected to take notes in class and turn in those notes at the end of the class to be counted for participation credit.
 
Individual presentation
For the first presentation, students will share a personal learning experience based on topics that we have discussed in previous classes. They will present their personal story to the class and discuss what they learned from this experience and what they hope others can benefit from hearing about this experience.
 
Final group presentation
For the final presentation, students in groups will be assigned a different region of the world and present a popular city from that region to the class. Students will share information related to that city to an audience that is interested in visiting or living in this city in the future. Each student presents a different aspect of the city, such as culture and customs; what to see and do; what to eat and drink there; popular sports in this city; and experience visiting. Students will be graded on the content they present; clarity (including pronunciation); speaking confidence; and their opinion based on the information they learned from their research about the city.
 
 
Reading/Listening Response Test
The content of the test is from the teacher-assigned articles that students have read and interacted with in the first two weeks of the course. The style of the test is similar to the Integrated portion of the TOEFL Speaking test, in which students find information in the reading (or answer questions based on listening) and then respond with complete sentences of the summarized answer or opinion based on the content.
