|科目の目的・到達目標||The English Writing courses aim to prepare students for tasks in a variety of settings in which they may be expected to express themselves in written English. Students will work to improve accuracy in grammar and syntax, and will practice composing English paragraphs and short personal and academic essays, in the latter incorporating and documenting material drawn from one or more sources.|
|授業の概要||This course seeks to develop an understanding of the process of academic writing in English. Stressing the importance of developing a theme on a topic when writing academic compositions, the course works through this writing process from planning (identifying a theme/question), drafting (translating theme into organized structure) to revising (coherence and expression).
In semester 2, the central objective is to encourage the students to deepen their understanding of the writing process by working on two self-selected topics. Class content and organization will vary through the course, but semester 2 classes focus primarily on providing as much individual feedback on student writing, as they practice the writing process on two self-selected topics over the semester.
