ANNOUNCEMENT – GUIDELINES FOR ENGLISH 3 ASSIGNMENT & ORAL PRESENTATION
As Type A students, you are asked to write a composition of no more than 1,000 words on a science – oriented topic including and analyzing all the features of academic writing (see relevant link: http://www.uefap.com/ in the blog), as well as elements of sentence style & structure (Identifying Independent and Dependent Clauses, Eliminating Wordiness, Run-ons, Comma Splices, and Fused Sentences – check the relevant E3 link Purdue University – Online Writing Lab). Then present your work in front of an audience for 10-15 minutes, analyzing both the content of your essay and the language, in other words the academic features and language elements you have used. Your mark will actually be based on the presentation you will make. Try to be fluent, communicative and confident. Never just read your written work. Try to show that you are familiar enough with your topic and able to analyze it.
Students who are interested in taking part in the assignment should send me an e-mail up until 13-12-2013, because I need to set the dates for the presentation and book a classroom. Presentation dates will be set after Christmas vacations. On your presentation day you are required to submit an electronic copy of both your presentation and composition.
P.S. The word limit of 1,000 words refers only to the composition, and not the analysis.
