授業の概要 Course Overview


This course directly aligns with NUCB's mission statement to “educate innovative and ethical leaders who possess a ‘Frontier Spiritʼ and to create knowledge that advances business and society." In this course, students will gain the skills, knowledge, and confidence to communicate about historical, social, political, and cultural beliefs as expressed through English and American literature. Students will practice "bridging the gap between New Asia and the rest of the world” by applying their critical thinking skills and contributing to the ongoing academic dialogue inherent in the study of canonical Western literature. The importance of plot and theme will be a central focus of class discussion and student presentations.
Throughout this course, students will:

-Read and respond to a short English novel
-Understand story and plot elements
-Increase their knowledge and usage of vocabulary
-Deepen their understanding of the English language
-Enhance their ability to express themselves and make advanced argumentation in English
-Develop the necessary skills to critically read and interpret literature
-Present on a story theme of their choosing
The aim of ENGLISH AND AMERICAN LITERATURE 1 is:

-Guide students in the study of North American/British literature
-Critically read, understand, and respond to a short novel and short story
-Improve communicative presentation skills

Central themes explored include:
-Nature/human relations to nature
-Survival/safety
-Culture
-Diversity
-Ethics

学習方法、レポート、課題に対するフィードバック方法 Course Approach, Report, Feedback methods

This course will be taught using lectures, small and large group discussion, and presentations.

Students should be prepared to spend approximately 1-2 hours preparing and completing homework BEFORE each weekly class meeting. Keep up with the assigned reading every week. You do not need to have fully understood every word of the reading, but please do your best. We will discuss the parts that were difficult or hard to understand.

You will be marked absent if:
- You did not attempt the reading for homework

To be successful in class, students must complete the required weekly assignments, come to class prepared, and be ACTIVE participants in class. Please arrive in class prepared to discuss the week’s reading: what happened, what you liked and disliked, and anything you found interesting or confusing.

The teacher will provide oral and written feedback on all assignments, either online (Google classroom) or in class.

It is encouraged that students utilize the Central Information Center (library).
