本授業は、学術的な英文に関する基礎的なリーディング能力とライティング能力の養成を目的とする。そのねらいは、研究拠点大学である名古屋大学の学生にふさわしい学術英語を使いこなす能力を身につけるところにある。論理的な英文のカギとなるパラグラフの構造に着目し、目的に応じて必要な情報をいかに読みとるか、また逆に、自分の考えをその根拠とともにいかに説得力ある論理的な英文に組み立てるかを学ぶ。将来、専門の論文を英語で読んだり書いたりする時に、指針となる英文構成法の基礎、および実際に役立つ英語表現を多く習得する。


Course contents

While the course consists of both reading and writing components, weekly classes will primarily focus on the latter. Folse et al. (2010) textbook will be used as follows:

Students are expected to write an in-class essay and three take-home essays (all one paragraph in length). References will be allowed for the take-home essays. However, plagiarized essays will face serious consequences. The above course plan is tentative and subject to revision during the semester, depending on students’ progress and, to an extent, topics of their interest.
