课程简介

本课程的目的是帮助学习者掌握大学英文基本的写作方法和技巧,打好英文基础,为论文写作、出国留学和将来对外交流做好充分准备。英文写作说到底是一门实践课。因此,本课程强调实践,讲授按照过程写作法组织知识点,例子剖析贯穿始终,为学生提供边学边练的机会。课程结束时,学员能够基本掌握大学英文写作。

《大学英文写作(一)》包含8单元,重点帮助学习者了解写作过程和学习规律,能够基本完成西方高校英文写作课程、人文社科课程和专业课程一般性的写作任务、写作规范和写作方法,作文基本做到条理清晰,连接自然,论据充分,具有说服力。

《大学英文写作(二)》包含12单元,内容包含各种常见写作策略:描述和叙事、过程说明、比较和对比、因果分析、举例说明、分类法和定义法等等,重点放在论说文写作。人类思维经常是相通的,但同时由于文化和思维方式的差异,让英文写作中策略的运用形成了一些特点,与中文写作不甚相同。如果了解和把握这些特点,就能够有效运用写作策略。

考虑到学习者的实际需要,本课程还补充了4个“how to"单元:”如何写学期论文”, “如何写摘要”,“如何写留学申请信和简历”和“如何写个人陈述”。

 

本课程适用对象:已修完《大学英语》课程,选修英文写作或者希望继续提高英文写作能力的学习者,以及准备出国深造的学习者。

常见问题

Is there a textbook for the course?

Yes. the textbook was published in 2016. 李慧辉,《大学英文写作》,北京:高等教育出版社,2016. The textbook gives a fairly complete picture of writing techniques, sorting out the core concepts, the key techniques, and other useful technique. What's more, you will have chance to read more examples and student sample essays and do more writing practice. You can make choices according to your own needs. The book can be used nicely as complementary material for learning, but it is not indispensable for the course.

Will I get feedback on my written work?

Yes. There are peer evaluations of your work that are the basis of the course grade. In addition, your final examination essay will be graded by our teaching staff members, and you will receive comments and suggestions for further studies.

Will this course provide instruction on grammar?

No, not really. Although grammar is important and resources on grammar will be provided, this course is focused primarily on how to write essays. We will focus at times on sentence-level aspects of writing thesis statements and topic sentences, but our primary interest is in communicating your ideas effectively to readers.

Will the course be especially difficult if a student is not proficient in the English language?

Yes, perhaps. Students who take the course should have basic proficiency of the English language because our work will involve discussions about how native speakers use English, and what different expectations they have for college writing. However, the instructors of the course will provide resources, model feedback practices, facilitate productive conversations, and provide instructions at times.
