One of my educational goals in this course is to help students to read academic texts written in English. The textbook for this course is <span class="i">Analysing Discourse</span> by Norman Fairclough. The author is one of the leading theorists of Critical Discourse Analysis and this is his newest and, in my opinion, best textbook. Unfortunately, this book has not been translated into Japanese yet. Therefore, to help my students to read this book I have made a paragraph-by-paragraph summary and commentary in simplified English of each chapter. I have also made sets of PowerPoint slides about each chapter. Using these supplementary materials, students are able to understand the textbook much more easily.
