Abstract

During my teaching, I find a regretful phenomenon, that is, the university students in China today rarely or even never read books. The “books” here refer to the books in Arts and Humanity, excluding their text books. Under the major-oriented and job-orientedlearning atmosphere, their reading has an obvious utilitarian intention, which results in their narrow knowledge, shallow thought, irrational thinking, andimpulsive actions. Expelled by this fact, in the recent five years, I ask every student who attends my class to write blogs on some recommended books, which will be taken as one of their assessments in the whole semester. The blogs proved to be a useful bridge between the teacher and the students, through which, the teacher can share ideas with the students about the books and about their personal emotions.
