Course Requirements

1) Active participation at 70% of the lessons during the semester.

2) Preparation for classes and class work with approximately 5 smaller assignments (35 points); for example:
A) weekly written leads on current issues (30-50 words) – to be done at home and presented orally in each class
B) written introduction of a topic idea for a short presentation – 50-100 words
C) 3-4 minute-long practice presentation on an academic topic (delivered in class) [12 points]
D) written abstract (to accompany the presentation; 150-250 words) [8 points]
E) written summary of a class presentation or video (100-200 words) [5 points]
F) written argumentative text (150-250 words) [10 points]

3) Summary of a short lecture: to take place in the last week of the teaching part of the semester, i.e. during CREDIT WEEK [15 points]

4) Position paper: this involves the writing of a 500-1000 word long summary and critique of a text based on your reading of a 5-15 page long chapter from a book/academic article of your choice (this source text must be submitted in the latter half of the teaching period; the resulting written text is to be submitted during the EXAM PERIOD in advance of your final presentation described in point 5; 25 points)

5) Short academic presentation (3-4 minutes long) of the position paper, followed by a discussion (to take place in the EXAM PERIOD after the submission of the position paper; 25 points)


1) In place of points 1 and 2A, B, C & D, you will be required to submit a 1-2 page worksheet about information/interesting reading from your discipline. This will be worth 20 points and will include:

- a short reading text (about 200 words) with about 5 comprehension and some discussion questions

- a short listening (4-5 minute long audio or video) with about 5 comprehension questions (listening for detail) and some discussion questions (listening for main ideas).

You may use ideas from the seminars or any other worksheet ideas that you think of to replace one of the two parts above.
The materials should be targeted at upper-intermediate (B2 level) students of social sciences.
Your worksheet should be submitted at any point during the teaching period (i.e. before the credit week).

Evaluation: Quality & appropriateness of reading and listening materials [6 points]
