今個summer讀既 課程內容超級有趣而且勁輕鬆 但d notes d vocab對我黎講好深
stani教左3堂 其餘都係一個好似叫小梅既女仔教 project都係佢改 佢教得好好架 好好人 睇得出有好好備課
工作量勁低 堂堂都好多片睇 堂堂都講唔夠兩個鐘就落堂 淨低果個鐘可以做group project consult
兩份in class exercise:
唔會話你知邊堂有in class exercise 今個sem就係第4堂同尾二果堂
都係勁勁勁簡單 齋吹水的
一份gp project report:
搵一單暴力既罪案 用教過既theory分析個罪犯心理 同比d solutions佢 唔洗present 大概4千字到 同4個大陸人一組 反而人品好好 又唔aggressive 好勤力默默姦雲 唔會擦prof鞋架 教左我好多寫文技巧 超有交帶 第一次遇到唔會做deadline fighter既組員 交report前二星期已經做哂 覺得做得好好
一個test:
有mc同fill in the blanks(無提示既 要自己記住哂d keyword)
我覺得都幾難 但其實都係我太心散無心機溫 mc有好多唔sure fill in the blanks果到淨係識2題 其他都係吹 考完好後悔點解唔比心機溫 心諗pk啦 好驚會c 好彩b+ 可能project真係拉返分

總之呢個呢個course真係好好 教d野又有趣 workload又低 比grade鬆手 之前上過同dept叫love sex既ge又係一樣勁輕鬆(果個連attendance都唔計添,次次返去20個人都無)呢個dept真係有良心

呢個course 其實我係2017 年暑sem 讀既
不過大致上都同sem A /B 一樣

Grade 主要based on 3部份:

1. In class assignment (30%)
係Week 1 - 13 入面,會有2-3個lecture 完咗之後會有一份exercise 做,問番你一啲果堂既野。睇番啲PowerPoint 通常都會識做
但問題係幾時有in class assignment 係唔知架,所以讀呢科最好唔好走太多堂,萬一唔好彩走咗有assignment 果堂就好影響個grade 架喇

2. Term Group Report (30%)
係最後一個禮拜要交一份4000字既report, 講一單案件,分析罪犯點解會犯案,再俾solution 咁。
Report 算容易,要求都唔算高,要有最少10 個reference (books/journal) 就得
但因為呢個係group project, 所以遇到freerider/豬隊友
一樣GG
我嗰陣就係遇到豬隊友,結果4000字差唔多我一個人寫哂.....
但係stani 會upload 一份sample essay 上canvas, 係只要跟足入面既format 就唔會差得去邊。

3. Final Quiz (40%)
最後一堂會有Final Quiz, closed book , 考哂所有lecture
考法不一定,睇番之前既留言會有MC, Fill in the blanks 呀, short question 咁
暑Sem 就出MC 同Fill in the blanks
有溫書就冇咩問題,唔會太伏

雖然stani 係main lecturer, 但其實好多既lecture 都係啲TA 教。不過呢樣係好事黎,因為stani 本身啲英文好難聽,而且照ppt讀,好悶
但如果你對犯罪學同埋心理學有興趣的話,呢個course 會係唔錯既選擇。

Hea都核爆,基本上做齊佢啲野就一定過
唔點名,基本上走晒都冇所謂,不過有兩日係做inclass assingment,走左你就:)
個final test值30%,今年一半MC,一半填充,啲字都幾長幾深要溫下先識

professor教書有時搞下笑 唔會話悶
in-class exercises&final 只要有上堂聽下都識做
project只要冇free rider都輕鬆輾過
只要你對criminology有興趣 一定靚grade

利申:final 溫左一日

The main course tutor conducted the lectures for two hours only and the time left is for project consultation. He jotted down the group you are from and obviously everyone can tell consulting him contributes to your grade.

His lectures are boring, yet he is an interesting tutor. You can sleep through his lectures and sometimes the lights are off while he played some video clips.

There were two in-class quizzes which you should not skip. Everyone just blow-water for the quizzes. The project was not a very difficult one as long as you consulted him and follow his instructions. The final quiz and the project can be done at the very last minute.

個時我堂堂都有番,但呢科係無workload到去到尾個幾個week先覺得自己係有讀緊呢科。上堂可以唔聽書,睇note溫書就得。sem尾quiz係mc同兩條fill in the blanks,所以都唔洗太勤力。有Project但不用present,gpmate之中有人係正正常常就得。如果想hea hea地讀的話可以考慮下,個grade都唔錯,不過reg時要留意下Tutor。

Most of the lessons were taught by Stani, 2 lessons by Alfred and 1 lesson by Cora. Stani's lessons were really boring as he basically read out from the notes.

1. In-class assignments: easy, some only require you to share your opinions. Not much in-class assignments to do (*sudden assignments)

2. Case study: you need to find the case yourself and analyse it. The guideline is quite vague so consult with Stani more

3. Exam: Stani prepared 5-6 sets of question papers, therefore there's no way to cheat lol. Some questions had traps but generally OK.

the grade is not satisfactory because i put loads of time on the project but it is not counted in the marks
only the final exam is counted for the marks
holy moly!!!!!

堂最主要都係Lai Ding Kee 上,其他兩個總共只上了三堂
做三樣野i
1. in class assignment 只計最高兩份 (30%),
2. 一個case studies group project (40%) 盡量consult 多些,因幾模糊個guideline
3. MC Quiz 40% (出得幾難,都幾多trap,所以有呢個相當好的grade 都感到意外)
總結來說,呢科ge只要努力,grade應該都唔會太差 (b+或而上),故我強烈建議reg 呢科。

比起其他GE內容已經比較有趣,同埋workload細,只係上堂做三份in class exercise,一個test, 一份group project
Stani上堂都幾悶,照notes 讀,不停讀錯字
上堂睇下片, 仲要好多片都睇唔到,好似被cityu block 左
認真溫notes, test唔會差得去邊,40題mc,考哂全部notes

依個course真係hea到呢......我每堂唔係訓教 就係玩電腦 Lai Ding Kee份人有啲煩, 好彩多數堂都係ADJORLOLO教. ADJORLOLO初初有嘗試同我地交流, 但見我地個個都無理佢就放棄咗, 之堂佢堂堂都係係到自言自語.....

有2個in class writing總佔30%, 其中一個quiz Lai Ding Kee叫我地用point form, 超 hea. 另外要做個project, 5-6個人作3000字, 輕鬆用一日寫完. 最後有個佔40% quiz, 有mc 同3條 fill in the blanks 我望過一次啲notes就去考, 我估抄抄地. 最後有B+其實有啲意外.....

workload非常低,而且如果你不aim A range的話,我覺得這個course算是輕鬆B+。

1. Exam 的MC非常簡單,如果有溫notes一定懂。
2. Project不懂的話可以問prof., 他會解答你的問題,不過如果不問的話可能會覺得project的要求比較含糊。
3. In class exercise : 自己寫自己意見,可以google,非常非常容易。

不過這次是非洲教授教大部分lecture,口音我完全聽不懂。
不過上課氣氛輕鬆,是個好course。

Course Workload :
2 in-class assignments (30%)
1 project (30%)
1 test (MC test) (40%)

For the first in-class assignment, Samuel prepared a MC quiz with a total of 15 or 20 questions. Since Samuel told us that the assignment would be a MC closed-book quiz one week before the quiz date, it was extremely rush that we had to revise seven lecture notes within a week. However, the questions were very straight-forward. For the second in-class assignment, Stani prepared an essay question. Instead of writing a whole essay, you only need to write down the points. Stani also allowed us to find information from the Internet and discuss with other students.

For the project, you need to choose a crime and analyze it using theories. As there will be 4 to 5 groupmates, it is not hard to finish 4000 words report.

For the test, there will be 30 true-and-false MC questions and some fill-in-the-blank answers. Some of the questions were the same as the first assignment, therefore it does not take you much time to think about them. However, there were about 1 to 2 questions, which were not taught in lectures. In this case, you could only guess the answers. Overall, the questions were not tricky and quite easy.

I think that this course is easy to study and the words are not difficult to memorize. I would recommend you to choose Stani Lai as the main lecturer as what Samuel said was very hard to understand due to his accent.

屌你老母呢科伏撚到一個點
講好左一個QUIZ同兩個IN CLASS ASSIGNMENT,
但係其中一個IN CLASS ASSIGNMENT 竟然係MC QUIZ, 仆佢個街即係有兩個QUIZ,
其實有兩個QUIZ唔係大問題, 問題係在於佢兩個QUIZ都係接住落,邊有咁多時間溫書ON9的嗎?

仲有今個SEM根本唔係LAI DING KEI教,佢淨係教左兩堂, 之後都係一個黑人LECTURE教,佢D口音我真係完全聽唔明, legal factor 會讀 "lee/ka fuck/ter",我都係聽左幾次先明佢UP乜

仲有樓下話LAI DING KEI份人NICE果班打手?
明明佢份人MEAN,勁強控制慾,
有次上堂有人想早走, 佢即刻勁惡勁大聲話NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO LEAVE WITHOUT MY PERMISSION(大約係咁啦)
傻的嗎?佢當自己係中學阿SIR?

總之呢科就伏啦屌

上堂十分悶 雖然有時睇下片咁
end term test 啲terms好難 有啲係未係notes見過 亦唔係常見嘅英文
仲有佢有幾條問題係問返佢上堂有講過但係無係notes度有嘅野 例如佢做過嘅research咁
整體唔算多野做 但無咩點聽書就有返個無咩點聽書嘅grade

Teaching:
Sharon: Sociological theories of crime, triad society
Dan: Media, policing and violence, 2 in-class group assignments
Cora: Biological and psychological theories of crime, youth violence, group essay consultation

Assignments:
2 in-class assignments (250 words): Dan will give the topic at the beginning of his lecture. The questions are very easy and open-ended. You could answer the questions very freely. The submission time would be 9pm.

Group essay (3,000 - 4,000 words): 4-5 people in a group. You need to select a crime and use 1-2 theories you have learnt/not learnt to explain the major causes of the crime and the limitations of those theories. Furthermore, you could explain if the punishment is suitable or not and make some suggestions on preventing the same type of crime from happening again.

Test (Week 13): MC questions + short questions. Some MC questions asked you about the statistics. I suggest you memorize all of the main points in the lecture notes before the test. Overall, the test was not difficult but required you to spend more time on revision.

Cora, Dan and Sharon are all very nice. They are very willing to answer your questions. When you study this course, you can learn a lot about the theories of crime from sociological, biological and psychological aspects. In other words, you can acquire more knowledge of criminology.

Workload :
Class assignments x 3 (30%) (有3次,但只計最高分果2次)
Group Term Paper x1 (30%)
Exam x1 (40 %)

Class assignments只計最高分果兩次 (At least this sem係),2個Class assignments 的日子會講定,1個就隨機出 ,如果想Take哂3個機會就唔走得堂。Open book,用得Electronic devices兼可以同人Discuss,有時問之前D野Require你温書,有時只問你Class assignments果堂的Content Require你留心,有次係睇片然後問片的Contents,不過衰左仲一次Extra機會,所以唔會到好難。

Group term paper 5個一組,自選一個有興趣的Crime然後做Research,寫佢的 (1) process / nature, (2) Causal factors / Law & Enforcement factors, (3) Solutions
not more than 4000字,restrictions唔多,但一定要有10個Books / Journals citation。
因為由第一堂開始就叫你準備 (form groups and think topics),到第13堂先需要交,有成個Sem的時間俾你做,亦都可以Consult Stani或者Oliver (可以落堂、Discussion time、或Consultation period果時 consult,亦可以Whatsapp Stani問野 (Stani唔收Email收Whatsapp),所以唔會話好Chur好難,我果Group no free rider (但有個Hea D),都算幾輕鬆,Citation會難少少咁。

Exam:Close book,全MC,全四式題,問你2句Statements全部正確、部份正確定全部不正確,最後一堂Exam (加交Term paper)。雖然全MC,但個人認為成個Course最伏係Exam,因為D Statements係偏Tricky,一個唔小心冇留意或者記唔足就會錯,亦會出一D課堂內容睇你有冇上堂,記得有條佢唔問Lecture Content,反而問個Guess lecturer對相關Topic的態度 (Agree / disagree something),Lecture notes唔會寫,冇上堂只温Notes就唔會知 (所以話唔建議走堂)。不過有上足堂有温書唔會太難 (我温唔哂但B+),個人覺得Exam應該係分Grade的Area。

Lectures :
D關於Violence的Topics幾有趣 (一D生理、心理Theories、法律野、Specific topics 如stalking, sexual violence, media and violence...咁),涵蓋得幾全面。上堂幾輕鬆,會有唔少時間播片(especially Stani堂),有時係報導 (動新聞同外國報導),有時係電影Clips,但注意有某D片可能會Creepy D需要大少少的承受能力。雖然係咁,D片有時真係會令人去思考,係幾好的教學Tools。

Lecturers :
雖然呢個Lecturer寫Stani,但近一半會請Guess lecturers教,當中Oliver (Course leader) 教左3、4堂,算係主力。Stani同Oliver都算幾幽默,Stani第一堂係到同大家吹水,問D Non-local黎自邊到,然後不停話D Non-Local的學生的Homeland佢都去過,又係咁叫大家要Drop好快D Drop因為佢好少俾A Range,好搞笑。上堂偏Hea (但你親身問佢問題佢會有心機答你),中意播片,都會講D Lecture冇的野。Oliver相對上叫嚴D,中意叫人答問題、互相討論住咁上堂,唔Hea得,不過換黎既係氣氛活躍D,參與度高左,而且Oliver雖然叫人答問題,但唔係好嚴肅,又中意自制一D 梗 (?) (恕我don't know how to mention that:P),有留心上堂的話聽到佢用返D梗會令人會心微笑下,個人覺得佢教得好好。如果唔怕被問問題 (我怕XD),推薦Oliver,Hea D就可以揀Stani,兩個都好。(其他Guess Lecturers都幾好,但好似冇開班就不作評論了~)
[個人黎講雖然怕Oliver問我野 (Luckily我完全冇被問過XDD),但覺得Oliver堂學到多D野。]

oliver d notes好整齊好詳細,教書都好認真,唔比玩手機,抽問問題,不過因為我都幾中意d topic,所以上堂都覺得幾輕鬆,有兩堂定三堂有小quiz,問一條問題,簡單答下就得。上堂通常最後一個鐘都係比時間小組討論下點做project

有Exam同Group paper,exam全部都係MC,都係兩句statement,問你 正確、錯誤、第一句正確第二句錯誤、第一句錯誤第二句正確,我覺得好難。Group paper每人大概800字左右,groupmate好緊張gpa所以搞到好大陣仗咁,要搵好多資料,但係都唔算難做。

但係有幾堂係guest lecturer嘅就是但比個ppt當notes就算(其中三分一係講緊自己以前做過咩職位好威威咁),英文口音又難聽。
**Most of the newspaper clipping or videos in the ppt are only in Chinese, not recommended to non-Chinese speakers.**
