|授業題目||英語研究特講（American English and Movies)|
|授業の概要||In this class, we will read a simplified version (a "graded" or "level" reader, in this case, level 3 on Oxford University Press's scale: 1000 headwords, with 9,871 total words, or level B1 in the CEFR, approximately 550-750 TOEIC) of the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., the famous Civil Rights leader, in order to help students maintain and improve their current level of English.
Students will be put in pairs or small groups and asked to read two chapters every week, answering my reading and discussion questions, making their own reading and discussion questions, and creating vocabulary/idiom/reading notebooks of their own.
We will also watch five movies related to the life of Martin Luther King and the struggle for Civil Rights for African-Americans, roughly taking place from the 1930s until the 1960s in order to deepen students' understanding of American society at that time and how it might be related to today's world.
|学習の到達目標||In this course, you will learn many new vocabulary terms, how to study independently, and how to critically approach history, literature and film.
Your learning outcome will be determined by the amount of time and effort you put into studying each week. The instructor hopes this will be an enjoyable, challenging class, in which students can learn more about American society and history through the experience of African-Americans, improve their English skills, and prepare for higher-level discussion and research in zemi.
You should spend two hours per week reviewing old material and two additional hours preparing for the next class with new material.
