학문목적 글쓰기를 위한 대학글쓰기 교육 방안
This study is to design a model of Korean writing curriculum for the academic purpose in order to improve the Korean learner s academic writing skill. For the foreign Korean learners who entered the university, Korean is an academic tool required to understand the academic text and acquire new knowledge. Korean also plays an important role of being the medium of expression to have mutual text-based knowledge and present the result of studies. An evaluation on how much the Korean learners for the academic purpose understand about a subject of debate and how to widen their understanding within the scope of learning entirely depends on the “academic text” constructed by the learners. Further, the learners can perform tasks and develop the communication skills using their academic text. This paper proposes a model of the academic-purpose Korean writing class to improve the academic writing skill. In this paper, we examine how to develop and apply various writing strategies for the learners in performing the writing project by proposing a communication-oriented education model, which is a compromise between project-oriented and course-oriented curriculums focusing on previous genre-based writing teaching method, and suggest a writing course with minimized control and guidance of teachers. To this end, we describe features and effects of new academic writing class model, the progress of this designed educational course also the educational effects of writing in discussion and presentation between learners while performing an integrated reading-writing project, discussion and presentation. Lastly, we propose a class-model to improve a creative writing skill of the learners through integrated reading-writing class, discussion and presentation so that they can use various writing skills depending on the purpose of academic writing and type of text.
