上堂style同改功課比較hea同悶, 最好consult多幾次問清楚要求, 不過其實幾好人

Essay topic唔好揀咁悶同大路野 佢唔鐘意 新奇啲佢都比較多心機同你consult
Presentation Q&A有機會西你面同問好多問題 但最後我個組份inforgrapic個班最高分(Groupmate其實唔太好重要, 自己一個都完成到)

Consult可以用廣東話

上堂會直接點名叫人答問題
每次上堂前都要點名 遲過15分鐘就要扣分

Sumie CHAN sucks. My work was much above average, if not the best, in class, and she herself said that in her comments, yet gave me an average grade. The people in my class who could barely speak english (and never bothered to participate (there are marks for that)) got a better grade than me. I so regret I didn't pass fail is. There is no pleasing her.

Prof. James is nice and makes this GE course be easier. His samples and styles will help you to accomplish a good grade with full of knowledge. The homeworks are presenting below.

1) The weekly assignments are necessary to review your content. It's not hard but relates to the course content each week. (I forgot to complete it one time and lost of my score)
2) The infographic really high impact on the final grade. I suggest you group up with someone who has skills in infographic design. It is a trick for someone who is not familiar with poster design.
3) The academic essay is the most important part. You have to develop the selected topic with taught of references. You might be lost the score if you fail to provide a correct reference style, writing structure, and the level of words.

My score in the last sem
Infographic 15/20 (mean 15.1)
Academic essay 15/20 (mean 13.5)

Weith's requirements for the essay are very unique, only one source for one paragraph and the structure of the essay is fixed to be 5 paragraphs. No flexibility at all. Am I a primary student?? Really??
p.s. (Don't expect that he will upload the results of your work on canvas. )

The tutor is nice and willing to help, you can consult her and ask for advice for all weighted assignments such as infographics and the argumentative essay. I would say that consultation is important for students in order to meet her standard and get good grades.

I took this course in 2019/20 Sem A.

Mark is a very passionate teacher. He encouraged students to actively participate in the class and would make some jokes to make the lesson even more engaging to students sometimes. He responds to email very efficiently and that happens even on weekends, so do ask him questions if you have something uncertain or need his advice. I enjoyed taking his course so much. I agree that Mark is not a teacher who will give A grades easily, but hard work will certainly pay off 

Though I got an A-, I must admit that the course itself is not a good grade course too. So you don't have to be picky about the teacher. Every teacher would give A grades, B grades and so on. I'm sure that if you work hard, you will do decently in the course, no matter who the teacher is.

Here are some tips for getting a decent grade in GE1401:

Infographic (20%): Pick a controversial topic that contains both advantages and disadvantages. You don't have to create a wonderful art piece, just put things in a clear and concise way. Less is more. Don't be afraid if you met free riders, I met free riders in this assignment but I still got 15.5/20 myself. Do ask for the teacher's advice so as to ensure that you are on the right track. In the lesson, Mark did provide some good and bad samples of infographics. If you are a lazy person like me (also don't do good in art), you may just directly "copy" the styles of the good ones while doing your work.

Argumentative Essay (20%+20%): This part depends heavily on the teacher's requirements. Do listen to his/her requirements and be prepared to ask them questions to see if your essay/style/whatever element in the essay is good to them. You may also join the ELSS essay reviewing services if you need more advice from different people. (fyi) I get my work done two weeks before the deadline and joined 3 essay reviewing services.

Self-Assessment Commentary (15%): For this semester there was the early class suspension. SAC becomes an option for students to choose whether to do it or not. Mark would give feedback and grades to students after submission and I think my grades are quite good, I didn't do the SAC so no advice, sorry!

Participation (5%): Do attend every class and answer questions. Be engaged. Do approach the teachers whenever you have any questions or inquiries.

Btw, don't know if this piece of information would be useful: I got an overall mark of above 80 and that's A-

I hope the above would be a useful comment. Gayau guys!

This subject is not that hard if you put some effort. It is quite teacher-specific, so pay attention to that. Also, the progress you make throughout the course plays a big role in the final grade.

Prof John is super nice, and he likes students who participate and engage in discussions. My advice is to attend all tutorials and do everything carefully - ask him for feedback, do peer review etc.

Attendance: attend all tutorials and participate as much as possible. Do not be shy if your spoken English is not the best.

Infographic: find good and legitimate resources and present well. Don't worry too much about the group (there's only 3-4 of you).

Argumentative essay: choose an interesting topic that is not overused or too controversial (e.g. abortion could be a bad choice; animal testing in general has been done many times, and so on). Use the feedback session wisely, and implement the teacher's comments. Ask the students who have gone through the course to review it, especially native speakers and foreigners (most of them will be happy to help).

Self-assessment: follow the professor's instructions; if he asks for disconnected paragraphs, do that. This is teacher-specific, so it is important to carefully abide by the particular requirements.
