教育目標

In this class, we will work on communicative and speech-making practices, again concentrating on rhetorical considerations. You will also learn how to listen to others’ opinions and arguments, in order to identify what other people think in relation to what you think. For this, we need to go beyond listening for “just” the main idea to listening with a mind that’s both open and critical--open to be willing to hear other opinions and experiences, and critical to analyze and test what is being said according to our own knowledge and experience. In addition to activities related to our investigation of the nature of the discipline of English Studies in Taiwan, we will engage in some other kinds of speaking practice. These include an individually presented informative speech and a group-prepared panel presentation, as well as opportunities for group discussion.
