English Composition (Ⅱ)(1) National Taiwan University
Students learn the skills of gathering and organising ideas, planning, drafting, revising and rewriting texts. This means plenty of reading and above all writing (mostly as homework), but also a lot of planning, discussion and peer evaluation in class. There will also be error correction and remedial language work as required. A wide a variety of writing genres are covered. Students are also asked to keep a journal, which I read at mid-term and at the end of the semester. This course involved a lot of work out of class, and students unable to carry out all the writing assignments required risk failing the course.
