Academic Skills Subjects
【授業の概要と目的（何を学ぶか） / Outline and objectives】
Academic Writing Skills I introduces the formal structures and styles of academic writing. The course focuses on two primary areas. The first is essay organization: we will examine the fundamentals of outlining and structuring essays as well as practice writing a variety of essay forms. The second is academic language: we will study the specific vocabulary, conventions, and styles of writing particular to university research. Additionally, this course will build confidence and competence in writing more generally, preparing you for Academic Writing Skills II, in which you will write a formal research paper.
The related activities and tasks are completed mainly through such communicative approaches as presentation and discussion in order to facilitate students' thorough engagement in active communication in English. This will cultivate their listening and speaking skills in the target language as well as those of reading and writing.
【到達目標 / Goal】

1. Organizing a variety of essay styles clearly and logically
2. Using academic vocabulary and styles of prose effectively
3. Citing and referencing sources correctly
4. Proofreading, editing, and revising multiple essay drafts

Each class consists of two basic parts: one is a short exercise building fundamental aspects of academic writing, such as vocabulary, sentence structure, or style; the second is longer, including a discussion on the week’s lesson and exercises to illustrate its central components. Often we will work together on exercises, both in small groups and as a class. We will also share and edit each other's writing, so students should be prepared for both giving and receiving constructive feedback on assignments.
Instructors will provide general feedback in class, and students will receive written feedback on submitted assignments.
