Orthodox Quote of the Week (124)

Those who keep the gates of the Kingdom of Heaven, if they do not see in a Christian the likeness of Christ, as a son to his father, will by no means open them to him and allow him to enter.

St. Symeon the New Theologian

    О КУРСЕ

    Данный курс предназначен для филологов-германистов и ставит целью овладение учащимися религиозной лексикой и дискурсом английского языка. Преимущественная направленность курса – миссионерская. Это означает, что навыки и умения, вырабатываемые в рамках курса, применимы прежде всего для диалогического ознакомления иноязычной инославной аудитории с Православной церковью, ее историей, вероучением, богослужебной и аскетической жизнью. Вместе с тем, курс предполагает ознакомление с религиозной проблематикой и ситуацией в инославных странах и конфессиях в терминах английского религиозно-общественного дискурса.

    С учетом этих целей курс включает несколько тематических разделов. Это:

    1. «Храм и богослужение» (Temple and Worship). Здесь учащиеся знакомятся на английском языке с устройством православного храма, строем богослужения, смыслом и формой Таинств, православным календарем. В рамках практической литургики целиком прочитывается текст Литургии Свт. Иоанна Златоуста на английском языке и предлагаются аудиозаписи отрывков англоязычного богослужения.

    2. Раздел «Священное Писание» (Bible Studies) знакомит студентов с составом английской Библии, с названиями всех книг Ветхого и Нового Заветов. Читается Евангелие от Марка с комментариями блаженного Феофилакта Болгарского на английском языке (перевод с английского на русский и обратно).

    3. «История Церкви» (Church History). Чтение, комментированный перевод, пересказ книги митрополита Каллиста (Ware) The Orthodox Church (History).

    4. «Догматическое и сравнительное богословие» (Dogmatic and Comparative Theology). Вероучение Православной Церкви, суть древних ересей, вероучение инославных сообществ.

    5. «Церковный этикет» (Church Etiquette): формы обращения к духовенству, титулы глав автокефальных Церквей .

    6. Аудирование: ответы на вопросы и обсуждение радиопередач по религиозной тематике (Ancient Faith Radio и другие источники). Британский и американский варианты английского языка. Данный раздел курса позволяет развить навыки восприятия на слух неадаптированной речи носителей языка и одновременно познакомиться с актуальными проблемами религиозной и общественной жизни англоязычных стран (прежде всего США и Великобритании).

    Автор курса исходит из того, что условием усвоения лексики является ее восприятие в естественном речевом контексте. Поэтому курс строится на принципе экстенсивного чтения и аудирования. Одновременно в начале каждого занятия предлагаются короткие тесты по материалу предыдущего занятия (письменный перевод слов с русского на английский).

    Эффективным приемом овладения лексикой является ее использование в самостоятельно создаваемых контекстах. Поэтому другой формой повторения пройденного и контроля успеваемости является еженедельное задание на составление оригинальных предложений или текстов с использованием изученных слов. Созданные студентами тексты после проверки публикуются на соответствующих страницах этого сайта ("Text Bank").

    Курс построен таким образом, что по мере продвижения от младших курсов к старшим студентам предоставляется все меньше возможности заработать баллы за механическое запоминание слов (еженедельные тесты) и все больше - за творческие задания на составление предложений и написание эссе. В рамках семестра на эти виды заданий отсутствуют жесткие сроки выполнения, следовательно, от студентов старших курсов ожидается академическая инициативность, способность управлять своим временем и планировать результаты работы.



    СИСТЕМА АТТЕСТАЦИИ

    Максимальное количество баллов за семестр = 100. Из них максимальное количество за текущую работу в течение семестра = 70, максимальное за зачет (экзамен) = 30.

    Текущие баллы складываются из следующих составляющих:

  • Посещаемость занятий. Количество баллов за посещение одного занятия рассчитывается исходя из фактического количества занятий в данном семестре и максимально возможного количества баллов за период (обычно 0,5-0,7 балла за одно занятие). Максимально возможное количество баллов по этому аспекту текущей аттестации за половину семестра = 5, за семестр = 10.
  • Еженедельные тесты по изученной лексике: письменный перевод слов/словосочетаний/определений с русского на английский. 0,25 балла за каждое правильно переведенное слово/словосочетание или фонетическую транскрипцию, 0,5 балла за догматическое определение. "Правильность" включает употребление, грамматическое управление (артикли, предлоги и т.д.) и правописание.
  • Письменные короткие эссе на тему цитат из святых отцов и их аудиторная презентация (для 3 и 4 курсов и магистратуры). Максимум 5 баллов за одно эссе.
    Эти баллы складываются из двух составляющих: 2,5 балла за содержание и 2,5 балла за грамотность.
    Требования к содержанию:
    1. Объем - не менее одного-двух абзацев.
    2. Эссе должно быть непосредственно связано с содержанием и смыслом цитаты, а не представлять собой рассуждение на смежные темы.
    3. Желательны конкретные примеры.
    4. Обязательно употребление слов религиозной тематики, которые должны использоваться правильно по смыслу и правописанию.
    Требования к грамотности:
    за грамматические, пунктуационные и орфографические ошибки баллы снижаются.
  • Еженедельные задания на составление предложений с использованием изученной лексики. 0,5 баллов за каждое правильно использованное слово/словосочетание.
    Внимание! Каждое использованное слово/словосочетание засчитывается только один раз. Засчитываются только те слова религиозной семантики, которые изучаются в данной части курса и предложены для усвоения, а не вообще любые использованные слова религиозной семантики. Не засчитываются также слова и выражения общего (не религиозного) употребления, встречающиеся в изучаемых текстах. Составленные вами предложения должны содержать исторически, богословски и духовно достоверные (истинные) утверждения. В противном случае они засчитываться не будут.
    ВНИМАНИЕ! Используемые слова и словосочетания в ваших текстах следует набирать ЗАГЛАВНЫМИ БУКВАМИ.
    ВНИМАНИЕ! Прием и обработка эссе и предложений заканчивается в 00 часов первого дня зачетной сессии либо за 72 часа (трое суток) до начала зачета, если зачет попадает на первый - третий день сессии
    .
  • Регулярные тесты по разделам книги The Orthodox Church (0,25 балла за каждое правильно использованное слово/словосочетание).
  • Явное или декларируемое отсутствие подготовки по каждому из остальных разделов курса (Biblical Studies, Church History, Listening) влечет за собой вычет 0,5 балла из их общей суммы.

  • Простая арифметика доказывает, что лучше посетить занятие, не выполнив домашнее задание по одному-двум аспектам, чем пропустить занятие из-за невыполненного домашнего задания.

    СПРАВКА: Действуют следующие правила перевода баллов в традиционную шкалу оценок:
    91–100 баллов = «Отлично» ("5") = A;
    84–90 баллов = «Очень хорошо» ("4") = B;
    74–83 балла = «Хорошо» ("4") = С;
    68–73 балла = «Удовлетворительно» ("3") = D;
    61–67 баллов = «Посредственно» ("3") = E;
    51–60 баллов = «Неудовлетворительно» ("2", НЕЗАЧЕТ) = Fx;
    50 и меньше баллов = «Неудовлетворительно» ("2", НЕЗАЧЕТ)= F.

    Orthodox Quote of the Week (122)

    There are saints who were very anxious, who had nervous tics, and also those who were very brusque. Others were exceptionally slow. Some saints had physical defects. What makes a saint is not outward perfection, it's that the old man is conquered on the inside. The saints are not yet totally transfigured, and the old man continues to be visible on the outside. These appearances can trick us and hide their inner reality from us.

    Orthodox Quote of the Week (120)

    For if we refrain from sin merely out of fear of punishment, it is quite clear that, unless punishment had awaited us, we should have done things deserving punishment, since our propensity is for sinning. But if we abstain from evil actions not through threat of punishment, but because we hate such actions, then it is from love of the Master that we practice the virtues, fearful lest we should fall away from Him.

    The self-indulgent person loves wealth because it enables him to live comfortably; -- the person full of self-esteem loves it because through it he can gain the esteem of others; -- the person who lacks faith loves it because, fearful of starvation, old age, disease, or exile, he can save it and hoard it. He puts his trust in wealth, rather than in God, the Creator who provides for all creation, down to the least of living things.
