教育目標

On completion of the course, students should be able to 1. identify standard elements of graduate level research papers; 2. understand and utilize the writing process in order to develop flexible strategies for generating initial work and revising and editing written material; 3. appropriately integrate outside sources with original content without plagiarizing; 4. use field-appropriate in-text and end-of-text references; and 5. analyze discipline and genre-specific academic English writing conventions and effectively apply that knowledge to a variety of graduate level writing tasks. Additionally, students will 1. develop confidence in their ability to write academic English; 2. develop their general and discipline-specific English vocabulary; and 3. develop accuracy in written English grammar.

課程概述

Advance Academic Writing is a writing course specifically designed for advanced non-native English users who are pursing graduate degrees. The content of the course is not tied to a specific discipline, but instead focuses on the acquisition of the writing skills necessary for success at the graduate level. Students in this course will explore academic writing in their own disciplines, develop clarity of written expression, and improve command over textual, rhetorical, and discursive conventions common in academic writing. Students will also learn about and practice the different tasks that are associated with the writing process in various academic writing situations.
