Although the workload is very heavy, this course is worth to study.

I studied this course in my first year at CityU, it was hard because of the reading materials but not the interpretation processes. We had to read more than ten pieces of story/article/journal. There were more than 20 pages in each pieces of reading material. I spent most of the time in reading these materials every week since I needed to check dictionary to get their meanings. Students will be difficult to follow lectures when they have not prepared.

There were 2 quizzes, a project presentation based on a piece of reading material, a final eassy in this course. All of them cause you a lot of time, especially the presentation.

Dr Sheung is a very hard working, helpful and nice person. He tried to make lectures not to be boring and gave extremely detail interpretations and evaluations in each pieces of reading material. He also visited tutorial lessons frequently in order to listen students’ presentations and asked questions to us which I had never thought. After that, he gave useful comments to us and recommended some books to us for our further study on the topic.

Dr Sheung said that he would choose this GE course if he could only teach one course. I could really feel his heart in teaching this course.

只有一个小组presentation和一个individual paper,哦,还有俩test,test都是根据文章进行阅读理解,文章认真读就没问题,presentation什么的可以网上看看前人对于这篇文章的见解,然后会方便很多。paper是要结合三篇上课提到的文章写一篇paper,具体内容似乎没有要求【记不清了

really boring and difficult.
it had one very long (more than 10 pages) reading for each week.
and the requirement of the assignment is difficult to reach.
i am quite interested in the culture and history of Hong Kong, but this course is really way too difficult and the work load is too high that i cant really handle it with other subj

but i didnt attend one test and have really failed groupmates for the proj so i deserve this grade.

It's really boring and requires students to read lots of essays and readings.
If you are not really engaged in reading, I strongly advice you not to choose this course.

For the presentation, it's not that difficult.
Sometimes, our lecturer, Dr Sheung may join our tutorials and listen to the presentations.
However, although we were asked to discuss, most students kept silent.

For the final essays, although Dr Sheung was really willing to help, I was confused with the requirements.

Well I skipped all lectures except quizzes but I participated in every tutorial since attendance is counted.
Basically we have discussion every lesson but everyone seems to be quite hea.
And we had a group project and presented our ideas on one of the reading materials during tutorials. The lecturer, I have to say, really involved in teaching. He went to some of the tutorial sessions and listened to our presentation.
Quiz, well, don't worry this's open-book quiz. However the quizzes seem to be difficult for non art students.
We've also got our individual essay. My essay wasn't well-written and didn't fulfill the word requirement.
Surprisingly I got A grade!
Overall if you're so eager to know more about the colonial history of Hong Kong, consider this course. However if you're so bored with tons of words like me, don't ever take this course.
