Požadavky ke zkoušce - angličtina
Poslední úprava: PhDr. Jan Šír, Ph.D. (27.02.2017)

Course requirements are: a) class participation (20 percent); b) weekly position papers (30 percent); c) one in-class presentation (20 percent); d) final paper (30 percent).

Attendance and active class participation are required as the course is designed as a seminar. Students are allowed to miss no more than one week. A legitimate explanation must be provided for any further absence.

For each class, specific readings (two to three book chapters or academic articles) will be disseminated to the students. Students are expected to familiarize themselves with the assigned readings in advance in order to engage in weekly class discussions. For each class, the students are expected to deliver a position paper based on the assigned readings. The position paper should provide a brief summary of the problem as well as own commentary thereon. The paper should be one page long (corresponding to 300 to 400 words).

Furthermore, each student is supposed to deliver one in-class presentation. The presentation should provide an informative background of the topic discussed. It should be 20 to 30 minutes long. Should the student be unable do deliver his or her scheduled presentation, he or she must inform the instructor in advance so the course can be rescheduled accordingly. Failure to deliver the assigned presentation will result in failure of the course.

The final essay (due May 30) should have the form of a critical book review. The reviewed book should be a recent academic publication relevant to our course. The book title is subject to the instructor's prior approval. The review should provide a brief summary of the book under scrutiny, a critical reflection of its main argument, supported by own evidence demonstrating a solid orientation in the problem as well as an overall assessment of its contribution for the chosen auditorium. The review should be some five pages long (corresponding to 1,500 to 2,000 words). Reviews conceived as a mere retelling of the main story line will be assessed unsatisfactory.
