The main objective of this course is that students acquire advanced academic writing skills and that all students should be able to produce well-written essays (4-5 pages).
1. Students will strengthen their capability of writing more complex sentences and will also continue to pay attention to the different aspects of writing.
2. Students will learn to read and evaluate rough drafts and finished papers, both their own and those of their peers. Formal peer review will be actively practiced, both supervised and unsupervised.
3. Students also need to consider the audience they are writing for, making decisions on how to best present information, what to define and exemplify, and what to leave unsaid.
4. Students should continue to write good introductions, conclusions and transitional paragraphs. Students should try to compose well-developed topic sentences and thesis statements.
5. Students’ knowledge of different rhetorical styles, such as definition, critical analysis, cause and effect, argumentation, etc. will be expanded.
Composition 3 is a third-year required course. As this course is part of the Comp/Oral series, its main aim is to give final shape and polish the skills of the students in writing. Students are taught to write academic essays in various rhetorical styles including essays about literature. Students also have to be able to formulate and pursue intellectual and professional goals. The course will help increase the mental flexibility of the students and they are required to write a research paper on an independently researched topic. This course is taught together with Oral Training 3.
