The Chinese University of Hong Kong
(This course is only open to S6 entrants from the Faculties of Engineering, Medicine and Science.). This course addresses the skills of expository (descriptive and explanatory) writing. Today's students will need such skills throughout their professional lives. The course focuses mainly on paragraph and document level aspects, including areas such as formality, credibility, originality, use of sources, coherence, and engaging the reader's interest.
The course is practical and academic. By practicing writing critical reviews or proposals, one will learn how to improve the structure, language and format of his writing, in order to render his article more formal, readable and persuasive, in workplace as well as in academia. However, one may not expect to improve his English level in this course, because the focus is format rather than language.
The workload is quite heavy, because numerous deadlines flood in throughout the term. But if one wishes to gain better results in this course, he has to study the course booklet (which contains most core contents of the course) carefully while finishing those assignments well. Of course, diligence is required.
Critical Review of a book or an article 25% + Proposal 45% (Proposal Outline 15%, Peer Review 5%, Proposal Final Draft 25%) + Excercises 10% + Course Participation 10% + End-term Quiz 10%
