As1, wk8, June 6th 2014

Have something to say? Let me know in the comments (or send me a private email).

The latest presentation schedule for this semester is here:AS1_Schedule


Read pages  144 in the textbook (from “Queen and monarch”) to the bottom of page 147.

Today’s class:

  1. Presenters: give your listeners time to read the text and take notes; help your listeners by repeating the key points several times, especially at the end of your presentation. Also, allow time for questions.
  2. What is the difference between Tory (Conservative) and Whig (Liberal) philosophy? Philosopher Herbert Spencer (1820 – 1903) wrote in The Man Versus the State1884年)  『人間対国家』:

“Most of those who now pass as Liberals, are Tories of a new type…the intrinsic natures of Toryism and Liberalis…  the two political parties at first stood respectively for two opposed types of social organization… these two are definable as the system of compulsory cooperation and the system of voluntary cooperation.” (chapter 1 “The New Toryism”).

  1. Hello!
    Last clas’s presentation was so good. Presenter gave us a lot of time, so I was able to write more details. However it took a lot of time that I was able to understand.
    I thought I had better to study English and British history.
    Thank you !

  2. Hello,

    Last’ presentation was done in English for the first time. I thought that they did their best! But it’s so difficult for me to understand the contents as I expected, so I have to read carefully the textbook in advance. Next friday, I’m doing presentation and I would like to do my best. Presenters must come up with various ideas to make my classmates easy to understand.

    Thank you.

  3. Hello!
    I thought that it is very dificult to do presentation.
    Presenter have to give listeners time that write and explain more detail.
    This week’s presenters tried presentation in English. This was good time that I study English.

  4. Hello!
    I thought that it is so important for us to explain slowly and wait every time. Because we try to do the presentation more friendly, we can understand this class much more than now.
    Today’s class was so confusing, because some people changed the party which belonging to.
