概要
Research Writing Ⅱ is a semester-long course which builds on previous Writing courses to take students to a stage where they are able to write research-based essays in English. This includes the ability to write sentences using suitable vocabulary and grammatical structures and to structure a whole essay, and also to refer to books, the Internet, and other materials to find and select information. Upon completion of the course, students should be able to:

Do writing as a recursive practice including pre-writing and post-writing activities such as editing and revising;
Demonstrate improvement in critical thinking and reading skills;
Select and narrow a research topic;
Locate and evaluate resources;
Document sources;
Edit and proofread sentences, paragraphs, and whole drafts;
Identify and build on strengths.
到達目標
Students completing the course satisfactorily will have completed a well-structured essay of around 2,500 words, including an abstract and a references section, with most grammar, punctuation, and vocabulary errors eliminated.
履修上の注意
Regular attendance and participation in class activities are vital. You are expected to finish all assignments on time. Remember that, even if you miss a class, it is your responsibility to find out what you have missed, and to turn in assignments on time.
Whether or not a specific assignment is given in any given week, students need to write something each week and also to demonstrate each week that they have read something.
