對本課程的期望
  1. 出席情況

    因為我們在課程上針對課程主題進行討論,而我當然會期待你們能夠在課堂上主動並且展現你的能力成為一個好的課程參與者:瞭解狀況的注意力,對課程有幫助的貢獻,還要有包容、明智的聆聽技巧。

  2. 影片

    請去看以下兩部由王爾德劇本改編而成的電影之其中一部:《情人搭錯線》 (三月上映) ,或是《不可兒戲》這兩部電影。 請去看以下兩部由王爾德劇本改編而成的電影之其中一部:《情人搭錯線》 (三月上映) ,或是《不可兒戲》這兩部電影。

  3. 報告

    每個課堂上的學生在專題討論會上都要寫出三份報告:一份專題討論會報告,一份回應式報告(包含分析、評分、每周閱讀資料之問題化:一頁的問題是必要的)還有兩份根據事實的報告,或是根據歷史性、文化性史實而「改編過的事實」。

如果「回應」的組成要素較簡單,其實它也具備了較難以捉摸的特性。身為一個回應者,為了要導入大家進入討論,你的工作就是把評價每一次論述、意見發表、提問、和閱讀材料的問題意識。你可以批判、忽略一些事情或是補充一些其他資訊;你也可以設一些問題供討論之用。

「改編過的事實」是根據事實所作之意見發表,大約五分鐘的長度,寫不寫在紙上、分類不分類都可以

評分辦法

在這個討論課程中,討論比寫作還要重要,評分比例是3比1。在「討論」之前…嗯…請看以上之第一點,一個「主動」的參與者不會一直一直在自顧自地講個不停…

責任說明

抄襲行為

使用別人的智慧財產而未經許可-是相當嚴重的犯罪行為。針對抄襲的學生,文學系的教職人員的一貫政策是一律給予「F」 的成績,而且老師也得將這件事呈報紀律委員會。在課堂之外所得到的所有資訊,都必須在書寫作業時清楚交代來源和出處。所有取自其他人的作品中的想法、討論、和直述句措辭都必須弄清楚來源,且適時地加上註釋。引用別人的文句時要標識清楚,以期與自己所寫的文章字句有所分別。想要進一步了解的學生可上麻省理工學院針對「抄襲」所作之說明網頁。.


Work Expectations
  1. Attendance

    Because we'll do much of the work of this subject through discussions, naturally I'll expect you to be actively here during class and to practice the skills of a good participant: informed attention, helpful contribution, generous and intelligent listening.

  2. Films

    Come to one of the two screenings of Wilde, and to either the screening of An Ideal Husband (March), or to the screening of The Importance of Being Earnest .

  3. Papers

    Each student in the class will be responsible for doing three papers for the seminar: one seminar paper, one paper of response, (analysis, evaluation, problematizing of the argument of the week's readings: esentially a one-page set of questions to ask) and two strictly-factual papers, or "factoids," of historical or cultural factuality.

The "response" component is trickier, if ostensibly simpler. As respondent, your job is to evaluate the argument, presentation, question, problematics of the readings, in order to lead us into discussions. You may critique, ignore, complement with other information; you may set a few questions for the discussion to follow.

The factoids are factual presentations, about 5 minutes long. They may or not be written and distributed.

Grading

Discussion in a seminar is much more important than the written work, to a ratio of 3 to 1. By "discussion" ... well, see point 1 above. An "active" participant doesn't talk ALL the time.....

Obligatory Inclusion

MIT Literature Statement on Plagiarism

Plagiarism--the use of another's intellectual work without acknowledgement — is a serious offense. It is the policy of the Literature Faculty that students who plagiarize will receive an F in the subject, and that the professor will forward the case to the Committee on Discipline. Full acknowledgement for all information received from sources outside the classroom must be clearly stated in all written work submitted. All ideas, arguments, and direct phrasings from someone else';s work must be identifies and properly footnotes. Quotations from other sources must be clearly marked as distinct from the student's own work. For further guidance on the proper forms of attribution, consult the style guides available on the MIT Website on Plagiarism.
