【本授業の目的およびねらい】

本授業は、学術的な英文に関する基礎的なリーディング能力とライティング能力の養成を目的とする。そのねらいは、研究拠点大学である名古屋大学の学生にふさわしい学術英語を使いこなす能力を身につけるところにある。論理的な英文のカギとなるパラグラフの構造に着目し、目的に応じて必要な情報をいかに読みとるか、また逆に、自分の考えをその根拠とともにいかに説得力ある論理的な英文に組み立てるかを学ぶ。将来、専門の論文を英語で読んだり書いたりする時に、指針となる英文構成法の基礎、および実際に役立つ英語表現を多く習得する。

While the course consists of both reading and writing components, weekly classes will primarily focus on the latter. Folse et al. (2014) textbook will be used as follows:


Week 1: Introduction to Academic English Basic

Week 2: What is a paragraph? (Unit 1) 

Week 3: The topic sentence (Unit 3)

Week 4: Supporting and concluding sentences (Unit 4)

Week 5: Paragraph review (Unit 5), Proper referencing style

Week 6: Developing ideas (Unit 2), Proper referencing style

Week 7: Definition paragraphs (Unit 6), Proper referencing style

Week 8: Narrative paragraphs (Unit 10)

Week 9: Narrative paragraphs (Unit 10)

Week 10: Narrative paragraphs (Unit 10)

Week 11: Process analysis paragraphs (Unit 7), In-class essay

Week 12: Process analysis paragraphs (Unit 7) 

Week 13: Opinion paragraphs (Unit 9)

Week 14: Opinion paragraphs (Unit 9)

Week 15: Opinion paragraphs (Unit 9), Course review


Students write an in-class essay and three take-home essays (all one paragraph in length). References will be allowed for the take-home essays. However, plagiarized essays will face serious consequences. The above course plan is tentative and subject to revision during the semester, depending on students’ progress and, to an extent, topics of their interest.

Across all topics and levels of teaching, I generally believe that the ultimate goal of teaching is to help students to develop self-confidence and independent attitude towards learning. To this end, I would like to make it my common practice to review the principles and teachings in The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People (Covey, 1989) and update what I believe to be common sense. That is, I would like to make sure that students (and I) become/remain proactive by focusing on what can be controlled rather than what cannot be controlled, have specific goals in mind, and set their priorities straight to achieve what is important in the long-run. Because second language acquisition requires painstaking commitment, unlike acquisition of the first language, the proactive, ambitious, and independent attitudes are, I believe, particularly important. In assisting students to become mature by developing the above habits, I will be careful not to impose my own opinions, without first listening to students’ thoughts.
