ES1531/GEK1549 Critical Thinking and Writing

A compulsory module for Engineering Students.

Two parts. First half of the module is about critical reading and writing critiques. Fallacies and how to spot them as well as other flaws in writings will be taught. Then how to put all these into a critique and substantiate with examples will be taught. Examples and exercises will be done. Assignment is also a critique writing assignment, where research about the topic needs to be done to write a good critique. The department will also conduct a workshop on how to do database searches with the help of NUS libraries.

Very dry part and be prepared to fall asleep. But to score well for this module, the critique should not be taken lightly. Write in a concise manner, bring out your points logically and substantiate with good sources. If your grasp of language isn't that strong, try asking someone to read through your critique assignment for you.

Second half of the module is about writing position papers. A topic will be chosen and a position paper will be written, in groups of 4 to 5. Be prepared to do a lot of research on the topic in order to write a good position paper. Tutor will go through your position paper with you and you will improve on it over a few weeks. It is a little bit like JC's PW Report Writing.

The final exam is a critique writing paper, similar to the assignment, except that a few sources will be given to you on the spot, instead of you doing the research. You will have to write your critique so that the sources can help you substantiate the points.

Quite slack module, but also a very boring module. Learning how to use databases will be very important.
