It was really great to meet everyone in today’s class. I really appreciated your attention and group participation during our class activities.
Academic Writing is one of the most difficult skills in English to master. Please remember that Academic Writing is even difficult for native-speakers. When I have to write research papers for conference presentations, it usually takes me one hour to write just one page! Although this course will be challenging, you will be able to improve your writing and critical thinking skills. However, it will be very important to complete the weekly assignments. Remember to manage your time and give yourself enough time to complete your writing tasks.
In our lesson, we read a model essay and then identified the different parts:
2. Body Paragraphs (3)
For the last part of class, we looked at the different categories you can choose your research paper topic from:
1. American and British Literature
2. Applied Linguistics
When you choose your topic, make sure it is specific. Refer to the handout in class to help you narrow down your topics.
