Short Assignment #1:
(1 double-spaced page)
Due: Thursday 9/12 (beginning of class)
Imagine that you have just read an editorial comment in a
fictitious American university newspaper by a man named Joe Shmo about
non-native English speakers and English composition classes. The article argued that learning English
composition was a huge waste of time, money and energy for these students. It argued that many foreign students intended
to return to their home country after graduation and had no use for English in
their professional and personal lives.
It went on to argue that students found it hard to give their full
attention—in terms of time spent and energy—to
their major, whether they were studying Engineering, Medicine, Law or even
Fine Arts because they were too burdened by their English composition
requirements. The letter further
suggested that perhaps the university was more interested in taking the
students’ money and less interested in providing the best education.
Your assignment: Write a response letter to the university newspaper. You will refute the claims of author Joe Shmo
by arguing that English Composition is one of the most important classes a
non-native English speaker can take, regardless of his or her major. Do not use the phrase; “in my opinion” (we
already know that).
Consider: What might make the editor of this
newspaper want to publish your letter? You
have a topic sentence already (English is one of the most important subjects a
non-native can take). Support this
thesis statement with specifics! Give
details! Also consider how you might
expect the majority of your classmates to respond to this question and then try
to write something else.
