|課程簡述||English Composition (I) is designed to help students to develop writing ability as well as to become active participants and language users. Although writing ability is the focus of the course, a holistic integration of four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing is adopted to support and to better enhance one another. Moreover, since E-campus is implemented while online resources are abundant, it is part of the praxis that students will be using Criteria, an E-learning system, for keeping daily journals as well as creating alternative learning opportunities with their peers. Learners' practice, involvement, and use of the language via face-to-face and the networked multimedia are required. This kind of study can awaken our uses of language, the structure of texts, the ideas that shape different cultures, and the interrelationships between ideas and languages. In short, this course intends to open the floor to positive and active writers who will learn to think critically and creatively and to express thoughts clearly.
