课程简介


General English III- British & American Literature

The class offers a skeletal understanding and a small sampling of English literature as it moved from medieval England to the rest of the world. The majority of readings still comprises acclaimed works of British and American origins, but texts from other times and spaces are also featured for their cultural and humanist consequence. The class is meant for students who have only recently started reading in the original. The instructor therefore takes upon himself to be neither systematic and thorough in historical coverage nor acutely discriminating as to meet some scholarly and critical purpose. The approach is rather to engage readers in the experiences of and dialogs over these works, so that a measure of associative enjoyment is always accessible, and that the enterprise of working through fictive texts in a non-native language, one that they have barely entered, may continue at least for a time after the class is over. 


General English III-Advanced Writing

The class helps beginning students in English acquire a measure of expertise and comfort in written communications, and particularly the expository form. The objective is then to cultivate a capacity to write clearly and effectively, to get the point across, to deliver information in such a way as for easy reception and to persuade readers to adopt a desired perspective and position. Each session is organized around an exercise that asks for recognition and internalization of the merits of a relevant compositional technique. This class does not teach creative writing.

英语人文教育:我国外语教育长期注重功能性的听说读写等技术训练,但随着人文经典教育的理念近年内逐渐普及,外语教育势必也要进行改革甚至站到改革前列。上科大小规模高水平的建构格局,为英语人文教育的试行提供了良好的环境。我们希望通过课程结构的重新设计,和新招募的国际师资一起,打造一个以人文经典为基础的培养体系和英语学习环境,帮助上科大毕业生成长为立足国内、但具有全球视野以及沟通领导力的新一代世界公民。
