課程概述

British II is designated a lecture (i.e. large) course in the department but it should be an interactive dialogue between the instructor and students. A lecturer merely standing in front of the class giving opinions about textual readings just won’t do. Questions, answers and comments should be equally appropriate from both sides of the dialogue: the teacher and the students. The instructor assigns material which the students prepare before class, and class time serves as a forum for exchanging ideas. At the beginning of the first and second hour of class each week throughout the year, a pair of students presents a 10-minute report on a chronologically-related topic (examples might include: the Peterloo Massacre; the First Reform Bill; Chartist demands; Nightingale in the Crimea). There may be exams on reading assignments during breaks, or papers assigned during those times, depending upon the nature of the material. The Midterm and Final examinations are rigorous, and consist of 5 parts, each worth 20% of the total exam grade.
