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.**

Alfred幾好人亦願意解答問題,但要求真係唔太清晰。上堂冇stani咁hea,每堂都學到野。quiz(MC+SQ)我個人覺得比較tricky,所以好意外有咁既成績。

Group Paper X1
In-class assignment X2
上堂好HEA, 睇MOVIES, 照讀PPT
Group Paper係搵Case 好煩
個QUIZ 真係無言
出D 完全未見過嘅問題(short question part)
可能佢上堂有講,但PPT冇
跟STANI 正! Part 到好gpmates 都緊要!

classwork有2-3份random俾 主要都係幾個gpmate一齊做大家幫下手咁
上堂講d theory有d悶 不過有時會有d片睇下咁
係交果份paper訂題目上有d難 我地組訂得唔係好好
約左佢con幾次 次次講d野都有d唔同咁 唔係好知佢想要d乜
最尾有個quiz 雖然係mc+short q 溫左但係都唔太識做咁
最尾同組有個gpmate A- 其他都係B range
其他tutor可能會hea少少 alfred係偏向嚴格d既

英文差的不要㨂,因為SEM尾有個考試,D 社會學的THEORY讀到癲。當讀到癲既時候,你會發現身邊的同學一早已經識哂D THEORY。同學決定(你個分的)高度。

只有2個in class reflection (15% x 2),1份gp project (max. 3000 words) 和1個 end-term test
要take attendence,但找朋友幫忙便好了
2個reflection很簡單,主要是take attendence用
gp project是一個case study,4-5人一組,因為我組裡沒有free-rider,所以挺輕鬆的
end-term test大部份是MC,少部份short questions,有點難,主要是考concept

對psychology和criminology有興趣的話,這科是個不錯的選擇,我miss了一個reflection,沒了15%的分數,考試又沒有很努力溫習,都有B+

CLASS WORK+PROJECT+QUIZ
我有FD比佢KILL左但我A-,Alfred人幾好,肯教你
上堂要走有風險,因為佢會做CW,唔會事先通知
PROJECT要比心機,要夠DETAIL同實際
至於QUIZ,睇NOTES就夠
不過最離奇有題都幾多分既我印象佢冇教過,而事後我搵返LECTURE NOTES都唔見佢有ZZZ
我估我死左係個題到
總括而言,付出收入成正比,唔錯唔錯
