ING 101 - English I : Basics of Academic Writing

Course Objectives

ING 101 is a 3-credit pool course that ITU students have to take during their first year in faculty. The Advanced English courses (ING 101, 102, 103 and 201), which have been taught at the university since 1997, aim to equip students with the scientific and academic English skills that they will need in their chosen fields. General essay writing skills and technical English are taught in ING 101. ITU students are frequently expected to produce written responses in their exams, reports and theses and as some deficiencies have been noticed in this field, the ING 101 course hopes to address this need.

All ITU students who score 60-74 in the proficiency exam take ING 101.

Course Description

This course is designed to enable the students produce written work encompassing definition paragraphs, descriptions (of a mechanism and of a process), and classification essays, all maintaining unity and coherence. In order to provide students with adequate language input and equip them with necessary insights into various aspects of academic writing, the English 101 course has been designed as a course integrating listening and note-taking, reading and writing skills, all leading to a written output.

At the end of this course students will have improved their:

1. Listening and note-taking skills: getting the gist of the lecture, differentiating the necessary information from the nonessential part, using short forms and abbreviations

2. Reading skills: skimming; finding main ideas; eliciting information; drawing conclusions, and building up content- based vocabulary

3. Writing skills: writing clear and efficient pieces of descriptive writing to communicate specific and factual information to a defined audience for a defined purpose.
