老师非常排斥大陆,在课上不断提到大陆的不好,把自己对内地的私愤发泄到学生的成绩上。虽然我的各项作业都不算很好,但是起码是认真按时完成。有mean range都不会抱怨,最后却是这么烂的grade真是非常气愤。我尊重你对大陆的看法,但是你的看法应该客观独立于对学生的评价。以个人主观臆断来完全否定一个同学所做出的努力,不配称作为人师表!

Overall speaking, this is a well-organized course with not-so-heavy workload. in-depth studies into animal welfare and the problematic human view that we are used to.

The tutor is quite strict as to class discipline. If you appear after he took the attendance, you are likely to be seen as absent. Attendance and class participation are important. DO NOT eat in class and DO NOT talk to your peers except you are told to discuss. Seems that he did not jot down who answered his questions in class but raising your hands from time to time may leave good impression.

The tutor routinely go through his powerpoint in the lecture, with quotes and philosophical concepts, and followed by movie depicting the concept he taught. The movies are all well-selected and the classes were enjoyable. One point to note is that the lectures were conducted somehow similar to tutorials.

1 open-book quiz - give full answer in an essay format. quite straight-forward, similar to the discussion questions in class

1 group presentation - pay attention to what he demands. consult him a few times if you are not certain. learn from your classmates presentations and you'll know what is needed. good to create your own topic but bare in mind it's not easy.
20 mins presentation + 20 mins discussion (discussion is important)

1 field-trip report (per group) - visited Kadoorie Farm. guidelines were given and answer the discussion question with 800 words. easy task.

1 individual assignment. - 1000 words. marking rubics is not clear - same instructions as presentation - normal essay writing techniques required

Don't miss class, Don't eat, Don't talk etc and respect him & the class
Be concentrated as the tutor is quite strict in class management

Deep discussion on animal welfare and ethical issues

Readings are not necessary, just focus on the notes and wrack brains for good arguments would be sufficient

Group present (5-6ppl) is realllllllyyyyyy important!!
Field trip report just 800 words for one group.
Quiz needs critical thinking
individual essay - deep discussion, don't just copy from notes
