課程規劃-中高級

  1. 課程主軸
    • 本課程的主軸有三:「多元文化」、「溝通能力」和「全球視野」。
    •  「多元文化」方面:學生透過閱讀共同教材文章、四篇短篇故事以及自己收集的相關新聞或文章來體察自身文化與異文化的同與異。且根據不同文化間的差異來反思各文化可能發生的衝突以及合作關係。
    •  「溝通能力」方面:學生必須能夠閱讀或聽懂中長篇文章,並透過口頭呈現的方式來表達自己對於多元文化下不同情境的理解以及看法,且能撰寫結構完整、主旨明確之三段式短文。此外,學生也將學習如何在團體討論過程中交換意見並且斡旋同學們之間的不同意見,來達到成功的群組討論。
    • 「全球視野」方面:學生透過閱讀全球性相關議題的文章,並比較文學中的呈現方式,思考自己在全球化世界的位置之外,如何進一步地積極地參與不同的全球化議題,來成就自己為全球公民之實。
  2. 課程目標
    • 本課程以多元文化主題為核心,讓學生藉由英語文學習來認識和理解多元文化。設計脈絡化課程,並搭配與全球化議題相關的內容,以提供學生多元文化交流與溝通的學習情境。讓學生在運用英文口說和寫作表達能力的同時,也能培養對多元社會的興趣和探討能力,進而產生對異文化的包容力,拓展學生國際視野,因而具備成為世界公民的能力。

This course, centering upon multicultural issues, aims to help students learn and understand multiple cultures through English learning. Its contextualized curriculum relates the contents to issues of globalization to provide students with learning environments in which multicultural interactions and communication are made possible. By producing oral and written works in English, students can develop their interests and curiosities about multicultural societies, which can cultivate their tolerance for different cultures and broaden their global vision, thereby becoming qualified world citizens.

The course centers upon three objectives: multicultural learning, communication skills, and global vision.

Multicultural learning:
Students are provided with shared articles, two short stories, and news articles that they collect themselves to help them realize similarities and differences between their own culture and other cultures. Based upon such differences, they are guided to reflect upon potential conflicts and partnerships among cultures.

Communication skills:
Students should be able to read or comprehend longer articles and verbally express their understanding and viewpoints of different cultures in multicultural environments. They should also be able to compose a three-paragraph essay with complete structures and clear statements. In addition, students will learn how to exchange their opinions and negotiate with their peers within a group in order to engage in successful group discussions.

Global vision:
By reading articles concerning global issues and comparing different presentations of those issues in literature, students will be guided to reflect on their position in a globalized world and how they can actively participate in discussions related to global issues in order for them to become world citizens.

By completing this course, students are expected to achieve the following objectives:

Be able to compare similarities and differences among cultures in the world and embrace the differences among them.

Obtain a deeper understanding of global issues and be able to reflect on their own place in the tide of globalization.

Be able to read and comprehend longer articles, actively participate in group discussions, and develop basic skills in speech and essay-writing.
