讲课用的textbook: College Writing Skills with Readings, Ninth Edition (美国大学英语写作第九版) by John Langan (available on jd for less than RMB70)。

这是一本不需要老师就可以自学的教科书。才两杯星巴克咖啡的价格。(我一般不光顾中国的星巴克。)

没有教科书,你只是路过看热闹。(就像我路过中国的星巴克。)

 

Part II: Patterns of Essay Development (短文的分类和写作手法)

Chapter 9 Narration (记叙式短文)

The Yellow Ribbon

By Pete Hamill

Since we usually do not use dialogues in research papers, I will skip the rest of this chapter.

 

Chapter 10 Exemplification (举例式短文)

This chapter will explain and illustrate how to develop, write, and revise an essay with emphasis on exemplification. 

You are provided with two student essays and one professional essay that emphasize exemplification.

 

Dad 

BY Andrew H. Malcolm 

Below is a link to this essay:

It is possible to use this style in research paper, such as citing an idea from a published paper. For now, I will just skip the rest of this chapter.

 

 

Chapter 11 Process (介绍一个过程的短文)

This chapter will explain and illustrate how to develop, write, and revise an essay with emphasis on process. 

You are provided with two student essays and one professional essay that emphasize process.

How to Do Well on a Job Interview 

By Glenda Davis

 

[You can find a pdf link when you search “How to Do Well on a Job Interview” online.]

(Essay starts on page 234 of this pdf file.)

                               

这篇关于面试的短文,虽然有点老派,还是有许多可取之处。

 

Developing an Essay with Emphasis on Process

Considering Purpose and Audience

Deciding on Structure, Content, and Style

·      Include a thesis.

·      Use language that is easy to follow and not unnecessarily complex.

·      List each step in chronological order or time order. (See p83 for words that signal time.)

·      Explain each step in a separate paragraph. If two steps are done simultaneously, connect the two paragraphs with phrase such as “At the same time.”

 

上面这些提示,让我想起一些科技论文的section 2,里面介绍in situ data是如何获取的。

 

Developing through Prewriting

Developing through Revising

 

今天就讲这些。有问题,请留言。
