主題と目標
This course focuses on writing science stories in English. As part of developing “Ocha science blog”,
students will write and publish science stories. They may cover a scientific breakthrough, explain natural phenomena scientifically or others. Their stories, however, must communicate science to a general reader in a clear and compelling prose.

This class is conducted from 2018.10.02 to 2018.11.13 (7 lectures) as follows:

時間外学習
I encourage the student to write on a daily basis. Students usually plan, draft and begin their writing with the instructor during the class. They are expected to finish and submit their writing as homework. The time spent on writing depends on the topic and the student's writing skills.
