​课程简介

分析类文体写作广泛应用于各个行业。它不仅仅停留在叙述的层面,而是剖析事实,从细节入手发现深层次的意义和价值。毫不夸张地说,分析类文体写作是学生们最应该掌握、也会是将来用得最多的一种写作技能。绝大部分中学和高校的写作任务,无论是实验简报还是科研论文,最核心的本质都是培养学生的分析和思辨能力。

该系列课程针对开发学生在分析类文体写作时所必需的各项能力,使之既能评析和构建论题、又能形成和论辨复杂观点,并能展开和铺陈观点明确的流畅论证。课程选取不同历史时期和文化背景的虚构和非虚构作品,每堂课重点剖析一个范本,课后完成有针对性的写作训练,课上与老师和同伴开展讨论评议。学生将在老师循序渐进和学伴切磋练习中锻炼严谨的逻辑思维能力、犀利的问题定位及精准的阐述能力,在日后学习和工作中占据明显优势。

学生家长评价

"At first I thought my writing skills were really bad because for all of 8th grade I had no idea what I was doing whenever we had a writing assignment, but I think this course helped me practice my writing and made me feel a bit better about writing. I've always been a slow reader, but having reading assignments every week helped me learn how to read faster and helped prepare for high school. Also, if I hadn't taken this course, my writing would've been really rusty going into 9th grade (since I wouldn't have done any English-related things otherwise during the summer), so it helped me transition into the new school year. Dr. Prusko was also really nice and patient."

 

“Dr. Prusko embraces and celebrates innovative and novel ideas, which allows her students to truly thrive in their own explorations of literature. She has been a huge inspiration in both the academic and personal facets of my life.”

"I liked the open-ended discussions about the different topics of technology intersecting with humanities. The instructor listened to all I had to say, and tried to get me to elaborate on what I thought, and try to challenge the views (to help me think through them), which I really enjoyed."

“The writing methods she introduced have proven to be invaluable across a variety of subjects and situations; when my friends are struggling with their writing, I recommend the techniques I learned from Dr. Prusko. Her enthusiasm and skill are truly remarkable.”

“I absolutely loved this course. Dr. Prusko is an amazing teacher who really cares about her students and takes time to make sure they understand the material. She is always willing to help and provide constructive feedback and is great at promoting class community and discussion.”

“Dr. Prusko is an incredible teacher and clearly knowledgeable and passionate about literature. Her class was challenging, but she provided constructive and helpful feedback and really encouraged us to do our best. She encouraged class discussions which were always interesting and helpful to the topic we were discussing.”

“I found myself working hard in this class because I felt compelled by the topic, and because I felt Dr. Prusko was very invested in our advancement in the class.”

“I think that the way Dr. Prusko is prepared, honest, humorous, and knowledgeable made learning more interesting and I enjoyed it. She was easily my best teacher.”

"I liked Dr. Prusko teaching method because she would use lots of figurative language which helped with my learning."
