Will There Be Texts in This Class? Writing Term Papers within a Research Project.
Altenberg, Bengt; Tottie, Gunnel
The practice in Swedish universities of requiring an independent project and term paper of third-term English language students has been very difficult for many students. The problems have been more related to students' lack of organizational skills than to problems with writing in a foreign language. As a result, Lund University and later Uppsala University developed English speech and writing programs to help students structure both their research and their accounts of it. In one program, students are offered a variety of topics to research, and in the other, all students address one topic. The slightly different focus of the two programs produced different pedagogical approaches, each with advantages and disadvantages, but both programs have been successful in improving student writing skills.
