Orthodox Quote of the Week (165)

If you love true knowledge, devote yourself to the ascetic life; for mere theoretical knowledge puffs a man up (cf. 1 Cor. 8:1).

St Mark the Ascetic
Philokalia, Vol. 1 p.125.

    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
    (бакалавриат)

    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:

    1. 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 семестр = 10.
    2. Еженедельные тесты по изученной лексике: письменный перевод слов/словосочетаний/определений с русского языка 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.
    3. Регулярные тесты по разделам книги The Orthodox Church (0,25 балла за каждое правильно использованное слово/словосочетание).
      В случае объективно низкого результата теста (менее 61% правильных ответов) студенту предлагается написать этот тест повторно. Результаты (баллы) первого написания в этом случае аннулируются.
    4. Еженедельные задания на составление предложений с использованием изученной лексики. 0,5 баллов за каждое правильно использованное слово/словосочетание.
      За составление предложений в виде связного текста начисляется 1 дополнительный балл.
      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 предложениях следует набирать ЗАГЛАВНЫМИ БУКВАМИ.
    5. Письменные короткие эссе на тему цитат из святых отцов (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 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, орфографические, стилистические и лексические ошибки баллы снижаются по следующей схеме (при максимальном балле за содержание):
      0-1 ошибка = 5 баллов;
      2-3 ошибки = 4,5 балла;
      4-5 = 4;
      6-7 = 3,5;
      8-9 = 3;
      10-11 = 2,5 балла (максимальный за содержание).

      Примечание Баллы текущего контроля успеваемости студентов, обучающихся в течение семестра за границей (70 баллов), проставляются за выполнение письменного задания (эссе о религиозной составляющей стажировки) из расчета 35 баллов за содержание + 35 баллов за грамотность. При этом за каждую грамматическую, синтаксическую, орфографическую, стилистическую и лексическую ошибку вычитается 0,875 балла из общей суммы.

      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.

    6. 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.



    СИСТЕМА АТТЕСТАЦИИ
    (магистратура)

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

    Минимальное количество баллов за текущую работу в течение семестра = 31. Студент, не набравший 31 баллов в течение семестра, к сдаче зачета не допускается.

    Текущие баллы складываются из следующих составляющих:

    1. 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 1,7 балла за одно занятие). Максимально возможное количество баллов по этому аспекту текущей аттестации за половину семестра = 10, за семестр = 20.
    2. Письменные короткие эссе на тему цитат из святых отцов. 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, синтаксические, орфографические, стилистические и лексические ошибки баллы снижаются по следующей схеме (при максимальном балле за содержание):
      0-1 ошибка = 5 баллов;
      2-3 ошибки = 4,5 балла;
      4-5 = 4;
      6-7 = 3,5;
      8-9 = 3;
      10-11 = 2,5 балла (максимальный за содержание).
    3. Еженедельные задания на составление предложений с использованием изученной лексики, которая является новой для студента и которую студент считает важным усвоить. 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, а не вообще любые использованные слова религиозной семантики. Не засчитываются также слова и выражения общего (не религиозного) употребления, встречающиеся в изучаемых текстах.

    Orthodox Quote of the Week (164)

    We see the water of a river flowing uninterruptedly and passing away, and all that floats on its surface, rubbish or beams of trees, all pass by. Christian! So does our life. . . I was an infant, and that time has gone. I was an adolescent, and that too has passed. I was a young man, and that too is far behind me. The strong and mature man that I was is no more. My hair turns white, I succumb to age, but that too passes; I approach the end and will go the way of all flesh. I was born in order to die. I die that I may live. Remember me, O Lord, in Thy Kingdom!

    St. Tikhon of Zadonsk

    Orthodox Quote of the Week (163)

    The Devil also manifests his presence in our hearts by unusually violent irritation. We sometimes become so sick with our own self-love that we cannot even endure the slightest contradiction, any spiritual or material obstacles; cannot bear a single, rough, harsh word. But then is the very time for endurance when the waters of malice and impatience reach the depths of our souls.

    Orthodox Quote of the Week (154)

    If you read worldly magazines and newspapers, and derive some profit from them, as a citizen, a Christian, and a member of a family, then you ought still more and still oftener to read the Gospel and the writings of the Holy Fathers; for it would be sinful for a Christian, who reads worldly writings, not to read divinely-inspired ones.
