教育目標

In Composition I, students will learn to: (1)use different strategies for generating ideas, such as brainstorming, freewriting, and clustering (2)recognize and produce writing that has a main idea (topic sentence & thesis statement) and supporting details. (3)write narrative paragraphs that are organized in chronological order. (4)write descriptive paragraphs that are organized in spatial order. (5)write expository paragraphs that are organized in the order of importance/familiarity/time. (6)use transitions to increase coherence. The first semester of the course is focused on paragraph writing with a variety of methods of support. The second semester is focused on the five-paragraph essay (introduction, three body paragraphs, and a conclusion) that can be used for basic academic writing and that can provide a platform from which to develop more advanced kinds of writing. Students will do numerous activities and exercises both in and out of class to help them recognize and execute the rhetorical structures commonly found in English composition. Students will also work on sentence-level and word-level difficulties. In order to pass this class, students must be able to exhibit their ability to execute the course skills.
