●本授業の目的およびねらい

This is an advanced level reading class. Therefore, the purpose of this class is to read about real issues outside of textbooks. Through these readings students will improve their reading skills and strategies. Students will do this through 10 minute presentations which the teacher will evaluate and other students will provide commentary on. Students will improve their reading confidence through practice, short presentations, and learning new strategies.

●授業内容

In this class students will engage with real English texts about the environment, the media, and immigration in the United States from the news and academic sources. This will not be textbook reading, but rather reading that engages students with real issues.

Students will be required to give short (10 minute) presentations about the reading in various classes. They will do this 2 or 3 times depending on how many students enroll in the class.

During these classes, other students will take notes that summarize and provide a brief evaluation of the quality of the presentation (based on accuracy and comprehensiveness).

The teacher will provide detailed evaluative comments to the students in class. Students' grades for their next presentations will be based on how well they incorporate these comments into overall improvements. We will also discuss how to improve reading skills based on individual and group issues that arise during the class.

Students will also be expected to do short quizzes measuring how well they understand the readings and vocabulary. In addition, students also will write short (1 page) reading reports on a newspaper or magazine article of their choice with summaries and their own comments on the readings. (They will attach a copy of the article to the report.)

●成績評価の方法

The grade will be based on class activities: presentations about the readings 30%; reading reports on outside reading; 30% participation 15% (including taking notes); and reading comprehension and vocabulary quizzes 25%.

●教科書

Handouts with readings and comprehension questions will be given in class a week before they are to be completed.
