Orthodox Quote of the Week (113)

I was diluted in the past when, while still in my childhood, I tried to start by applying to the Divine Scriptures critical discussion rather than pious research. Through my lax morals I closed off my own access to the Lord. In my pride I dared to seek that which no one can find unless he practices humility.

    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. 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). 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.
