This is an interesting course, especially if you like gothic, stories and creative stuffs.
Lectures:
Most lectures are interesting, and sometimes we spend half of the lecture watching movie. No attendance taking, but she may ask a few questions in class. Sometimes we use the poll app to answer questions and it's fun.
Readings:
Quite a lot of readings, sometimes a long essay(1x pages) sometimes short stories. In my opinion you can choose some of the paragraphs(eg. first and last) to read, but make sure you know what the stories are about and the major plots (by reading wiki/intro on websites etc).
Quizzes(2):
Short quizzes nearly all MC. If you listen in class and prepared the readings like I said, you can do well. Very straight forward.
Grp project:
Creative project, with any gothic theme. You can make a story booklet, make a video, performance whatever. Dr. Linder will let you form grps using the canvas function, better choose grpmates with similar interest.
Essay:
3 topics to choose from, reflecting on some theories or on your projects. Some sources are given to you for citing. Not very interesting task but easy to get good grade.

Most important is that you are interested in the theme of this course, then everything will be fine :)

Birgit is very nice and grades are quite reasonable. The average score of group project is 28.3/30 this year. Even if you don't have any knowledge about gothic before this course, you can still get a good grade as long as you spend enough time on it.

This course requires a high standard of English. There are around two readings every week. The readings are quite difficult. If you are interested in vampires, demons, dark romanticism and enjoy reading books like Dracula, Frankenstein, you should choose this course. However, if you are not, you will get bored and some videos watched during class are chilling.

Mark Distribution:
2 Quizes (Total 40%): You must be familiar with the readings and the lecture powerpoints
Group Project (30%): it is important to find good group mates.
Essay (30%)

As Dr Linder gives most of us high marks in group project and essay, the quizes are important and the grade intervals are narrow.

有兩個quiz,主要係mc,第2次quiz有short q
只要有睇Dr.Linder比既reading同埋上堂,高分唔難,我兩次都接近滿分

一份Creative group project,形式不限,有好多組都好有創意好正
我地組作左篇poem同畫畫,攞A

Final essay(800字內)睇落題目難作,但我覺得比分鬆手

呢個course適合鐘意英文,文化,文學既人讀
我個人好鐘意上呢堂 學到好多野 !
Dr.Linder真係好好人 呢個course由week 1 到week 14個lecture hall可以話係爆滿,可見大家都好鐘意呢堂:D

不過又預左走堂又唔睇reading但想攞好grade就唔好take呢科啦 佢真係有心教又教得好 留番個位比真係會用心讀既人啦

Many readings. There are two quizzes to test you about the knowledge of the readings. You must study hard and have high standard of English to finish and understand the readings. There are also a group creative project and one essay(800).

老師好好人
有兩個quiz....考reading同小小gothic嘅basic knowledge
佢每個星期會assign一至兩份reading要上堂前睇……大部份都係short story or poem個啲……建議大家抽時間睇左佢……就算真係好忙都係wiki睇下個故事大概講咩(大部份都可以係wiki揾到)……如果唔係臨quiz之前先一次過睇曬會好崩潰lol
creative project.....用心小小做就一定唔會低分
最後有一份writing....700 to 800字……我交個日嘅下午好hea咁用左個幾鍾做……題目都唔難……

The criteria somehow makes it not so easy to reach a very high level but the average grade is acceptable. The workload is not too heavy but still requires hard work. By the way, the teacher is kind.

對個topic有興趣會好enjoy上堂,有電影睇,creative assignment好free
但你要預D reading 都幾多,quiz 會問reading+flim嘅野,少少難,paper俾分其實唔算緊,係我final篇essay 自己知hea咗...

這位老師給分很仁慈,除了近代小說也會介紹相關的美國影集和電影,但是讀這科需要讀大量(字彙很深)的reading,不看reading的話分數不可能高,paper很需要獨立思考。適合喜愛流行文學的同學。
