Metody i kryteria oceniania: (tylko po angielsku)

Building general academic vocabulary and discipline-specific vocabulary is a significant element of the course and each student will complete an individual project which will help them expand the range of useful language for reading and writing in the academic context.

Formative assessment plays a significant role in the development of writing skills therefore, each student will receive feedback on their written work and will be asked to act upon it.

There are four components of the final grade:

1. Essay 1 (due on 29.03.21) – 20%

Metody dydaktyczne: (tylko po angielsku)

The teaching approach focuses on the students and their active participation in class (action-oriented approach). Students often work in pairs and groups. The course is partly based on the flipped classroom method where students read materials before synchronous classes. This method allows for more efficient interaction during live classes.

Classes will be run online using Zoom together with Google Classroom. The combination of those tools will allow for synchronous and asynchronous work during the course.

Students will receive an invitation to join Google Classroom, as well as a tutorial on how to use the platform before the start of the course.
