僅將此課程獻給美國康乃爾大學助教英文課 EDUC 578 及 579,是我學到簡報技巧的地方(而不是在台灣或台灣大學)。

(During class, I speak English only. That is the rule for teachers, and meanwhile someone is "looking at/monitoring" me. But during the break or after class, students can speak Mandarin with me or discuss in the LINE group. However, I would like to encourage non-English native students to practice more in any chance)

--------------------------- 

I ever studied my PhD program in the US for several years, and I completely understand the frustration/fear/stress with my not-good English.  Now, I am a teacher, I obligate to help students who are not English native speakers.  Any questions, please let me know.

我曾在美國讀了幾年的博士班,我完全了解英文欠佳的那種挫折/恐懼/壓力。現在我是老師,我有義務要協助非英語母語的學生。任何問題,請讓我知道。

One Dollar's teaching policy

1. Only encouragement, no punishment, no enforcement. 

2. Respect and help students' choice (how much effort they want to make for this course)


Grading policy

(Unless supervisors ask me to modify the grading policy. Otherwise, I will use it)

(I will determine the details in the beginning of the semester) 

In the first week, One Dollar will suggest students to select either group A or B (by a questionnaire)(students who do not select a group will be classified as Group A).

Group A  (Basic workload)

**The score is up to 75

Requirements to pass this course

1. Attendance: least 6 times/weeks (10%. Student gets 10 marks as long as his or her attendance reaches 6 times)

2. An assay (about 300 words for each part)(65%)

Decide a topic, and then:

Part 1: a draft: Just write it without software corrections or referring examples)

Part 2:  AI generated essay: 


------------------------

Group B  (intermediate to heavy workload)

**The minimum score is 80. And plus 10% of creative work to be 100.

*Students who select group B and finish "all works" will have higher probability to get One Dollar's letter of recommendation  (if you need)  

Requirements

1. Attendance: at least 10 times/weeks

2. Two times of formal "writing and oral presentation" (on week 9-April 18 and Week16-June 03) [one in presentation slides, and the other is an A0 size poster file]

3. Class assignment: at least 10 times/weeks of interaction/practices/assignments in class (students will writing and then present during the class)

 

**Note: 

Students can switch from group B to A any time as they want (So, I encourage student to select Group B first). 

In addition, One Dollar will change the group's list (and announce it) if students cannot catch the schedule and accomplish the class assignment or other requirements.   

Students who do more than group A not do not accomplish all requirements of Group B, the scores will be 70–80. 

 

Optional works -Creative works for group B (10%, optional).  For example: 

* Digital notes  *Publish an academic poster  *Translation work  

*running project(s) related to this course  *Attend the "reading and expression competition/閱讀與表達競賽" from KNU [5 marks for registoring the competition, and 10 marks if students win the prize]

 

*Others (please discuss with One Dollar in advance)

-------------------------------------------------- 

One Dollar's style of writing format-- some sections

First, if you think that you do not need do your best on the task (including One Dollar's class) ---> use AI to generate the article [accomplish the mission and save your time].  

Second,  if you consider that is important and you want to and eager to learn and internalize the skills/knowledge to yours: you might follow One Dollar's comments. Please reservate all parts of your writing

 

a. Writing a draft  without spelling correction on office or website editor (One Dollar will demonstrate it) .

You may check terms/sentences you do not know or not confident to use.

Like: "phenamenon "(x)   -----> check dictionary or reliable website  ---->   "phenomenon "(o)

Like: "Please make some selling slogan for the new product."---> not good. "Please make some advertising slogan for the new product."--->better.

----> Reserve this draft-01. Copy and paste the draft to next step.

b. Spelling correction on your draft (but no correction on grammar this time)

 ----> Reserve this draft-02. Copy and paste the draft to next step.

c. Use AI to generate an article to the topic (copy and paste to your note)

----> Keep the AI generated article.

d. Grammar/writing/spell correction tools on the draft.

----> Reserve this draft-03. Copy and paste the draft to next step.

(For important articles, One Dollars uses three kinds of tools to correct the writing)

e. finalize your manuscript. 

----> Proofread it again (if you change/revise it, you may use grammar-spell tools to recheck it)  and DONE.
