ENG156 Top Level English A
2クラス 1単位 1~2年次 2学期
MacNaughton, A. S. 

【題目】Researching, Summarizing, and Discussing World News
【到達目標】The Monday (MacNaughton) version of Top Level English focusses on the issues underlying world news, with a challenging course of student-led research and presentation exercise that will give students weekly opportunities to advance their English as well as their world-news awareness.
【講義内容】The idea behind this class will be to use our various perspectives, life experiences, and readings to conduct weekly discussions on international issues and events concerning Japan and the world. English is our tool to explore issues and current affairs deeply and with a critical eye to finding new solutions and understandings. Each week we will begin with a description of some issue found in an English media source - initially provided by the instructor, but soon after the responsibility of each student to research and summarize to group members. Needless to say, this class requires a FIRM COMMITTMENT to a 100% English language environment each week. Joining the class depends on your performance in the initial try-out class. If your name is on the preliminary class list, you may then register for the class.
