Standing Homework

.

Upon viewing any class documentary film, students will always:

1)    Read the related transcript on the website. Save the PDF file to your computer and/or smart phone. (Bring one or the other to class, by the way.)

2)    Look up any unknown vocabulary. I’m not going to waste time teaching you words you may already know. You’re a better judge of what you don’t know than I am. You are responsible for learning all of the words on the transcript regardless, as we will be using them in class from the following week on. Of course, consult with me during class or via email if you need clarification or help with any of these words, or with any aspect of grammar or language usage from the transcripts.

3)    Answer the Worksheet questions handed out in class. If you’re absent, print out the appropriate PDF file from the website and complete by using the transcript. Bring the completed worksheet (longhand is okay – typing is not necessary) to class and we’ll go over the answers. You’ll need to know this material for the tests, so make sure you get the answers. If you miss a class, review your answers with one of the other students who did attend, or catch me before or after class and I’ll go over any questions you might have.

4)    Write your comments directly on the website in the comment section under each weekly assignment posting. Briefly write about your thoughts, reactions, and insights into the section of the DVD you viewed.

• What impressed you about what you saw?

• Did it affect your thoughts or views on the subject matter the filmmaker looked at?

• Do you have any strong feelings one way or another on any part of what you viewed? Discuss.

We’ll go through some or all of the comments in class via our iPhones or PCs so be prepared to discuss what you wrote and why.

Length = 100 – 150 words.

Deadline: Monday evening, 11:59:59 PM. COMMENTS RECEIVED UP UNTIL TUESDAY, 11:59:59 PM WILL RECEIVE ONLY HALF CREDIT. COMMENTS RECEIVED AFTER THAT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED WITHOUT A VALID EXCUSE (HOSPITALIZATION, DEATH IN THE FAMILY, ETC.) AND SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION.

Use your school email account and sign your name and class session each time, please.

For Hiyoshi students, indicate your class session as follows:

W4 = Wednesday 4th Period

W5 = Wednesday 5th Period

For Mita students, indicate your class session simply as:

KTTC = Keio Teacher Training Center
