Advanced Composition (3) Intensive practice in writing different text types in German.
GER 401Y Advanced Composition (3)
GER 401Y is the writing across the curriculum component of the German language sequence. After thorough discussion of various text types, students will read and practice writing in different genres. GER 401Y concentrates on building other language skills as well. We will do so by reading and discussing short German texts from a variety of sources and watching film and television. In addition, we will review aspects of German grammar that present difficulties to many English speakers. Evaluation will be based on five writing assignments, a writing portfolio, quizzes, and class participation.
The course will be offered twice a year with an enrollment of up to twenty students.
GER 401Y is required for all German B.A. and B.S. major options as well as for the German minor.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
