●本授業の目的およびねらい

本授業は、学術的な英文に関する基礎的なリーディング能力とライティング能力の養成を目的とする。そのねらいは、研究拠点大学である名古屋大学の学生にふさわしい学術英語を使いこなす能力を身につけるところにある。論理的な英文のカギとなるエッセイの構造に着目し、目的に応じて必要な情報をいかに読みとるか、また逆に、自分の考えをその根拠とともにいかに説得力ある論理的な英文に組み立てるかを学ぶ。将来、専門の論文を英語で読んだり書いたりする時に、指針となる英文構成法の基礎、および実際に役立つ英語表現を多く習得する。

●履修条件あるいは関連する科目等

None.

●授業内容

Each lesson of the course will be divided into a speech giving section and an
extensive reading section. In the speech giving half of the lesson, student
will take it in turns to give short (approximately 10 minute) oral
presentations in English on matters of their own choosing. The aim here is to
break away from dependence on textbooks or simulated communication and move
instead towards genuine communication organized by the students themselves.
Accordingly, students will not be obliged to talk about particular topics but
will be free to speak about anything that interests them and which they feel
will be of interest to their classmates. Students will be expected to give
either two or three presentations, depending on the number of students who
take the course. After each presentation the teacher will provide the
presenter with a detailed feedback report on his or her overall performance.

In the extensive reading half of the lesson, students will make use of a series
of short and entertaining books known as Graded Readers. These are books with
different levels of difficulty written specifically for learners of English.
Students will be expected to progress through the series of graded readers,
reading at their own pace but aiming to gradually increase both their speed
and their level of reading comprehension. At this stage, after reading each
book, students will be required to write a brief report, giving their personal
reaction to the book and describing their experience of reading it. Finally,
students will be given the opportunity to discuss their reading with the
instructor who will review their book reports and give them feedback and
advice on how to further improve their reading ability.

●成績評価の方法

20% based on the number of pages of Graded Readers that each student reads;
20% will be based on students' speeches; book reports (5%) and attendance (5%);
e-learning (20%); public tests (30%).

●教科書

None. Students will be responsible for producing handouts for their own
speeches. All the graded readers are available for borrowing in the Central
Library of the university.

●参考書

None. However, students may find it beneficial to use an English-English
Learners Dictionary, either in printed or electronic form. One of the best
such dictionaries currently available is the Longman Dictionary of
Contemporary English.

●注意事項
