Not forgotten to my family, thanks for helping me in providing me with enough facilities like notebook, printer and giving me support in order to finishing this assignment. Next, thank you to all my friends for helping me in understanding the topic, finding the main ideas and supporting details, and produced an argumentative essay and support me when I need it. Last but not least, Im really appreciating all of your help. Thank you for helping me. Without all of your help, maybe I cannot complete my assignment like Im done today. Im fully satisfied with my assignment and I hope all of you will share the same feeling. Thank you. Sincerely, (RUSLAN ABD. MAJID) PGSR SCIENCE II

OBJECTIVES OF THE COURSEWORK Through this coursework, I am able to : 1. apply appropriate reading strategies to understand the articles given. 2. identify the main ideas and supporting details. 3. transfer information from linear to non-linear form. 4. respond critically to the topic discussed in the articles by giving personal views and opinions. 5. cite from a variety of sources to support argument.

INTRODUCTION 1. Definition: In this kind of essay, we not only give information but also present an argument with the PROS (supporting ideas) and CONS (opposing ideas) of an argumentative issue. We should clearly take our stand and write as if we are trying to persuade an opposing audience to adopt new beliefs or behaviour. The primary objective is to persuade people to change beliefs that many of them do not want to change. 2. Organization: All argumentative topics have PROs and CONs. Before starting writing, it is imperative to make a list of these ideas and choose the most suitable ones among them for supporting and refuting. 3. Refuting opposing arguments: Before we start saying that the opponents are wrong, we should specify their opposing ideas. Otherwise, it would be like hitting the other person with eyes closed. We should see clearly what we are hitting and be prepared beforehand so that he cannot hit us back. We can do this by knowing what we are refuting. 4. Language: Signposts gain importance in the argumentative essay. They enable the readers to follow our arguments easily.

3.0 REFLECTION

Thanks to God finally I had finished my ELE 3102: PRINCIPLES OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHINGCoursework right on time. Although I had lots of coursework and works to be done and had difficulties in producing the argumentative essay based on the three articles given, I had tried our best and this is the result. Through this assignment, now I gained the skills in identifying the main ideas and supporting details from the three articles given. First I admit that I am to weak in understanding the articles, but with the help of Mdm Shalena Adriana Kok and my fellow friends, Mr. Shamsul B. Ali ,finally I can understand the articles and identifying the main ideas and supporting details. Furthermore, I had learnt about how to transfer the main ideas and supporting details into a graphic organizer, from linear to non-linear form. As we know, those three articles contains lots of main ideas and supporting details and I need to choose the most important ones and finally I managed to include all the main ideas and supporting details into a graphic organizer in just one sheet of paper. Moreover, the most important things are when I learnt to write an 1000 words of argumentative essay by responding critically to the topic of the articles. First I did not know what is argumentative; its type and how responds critically to the articles given. But with the help of Mdm Shalena Adriana Kok through her lectures and notes, I

manage to write reflective essay which I thought impossible to be done at the first time. One thing that opened my eyes was through online chatting, the spelling, grammar is ignored by online people. As a result, many people will face problems with

grammatical errors and proper English is dying out. So as a future teacher, it will be my responsibilities in helping my pupils from having the same problems. With the help of my lecturers, Mdm Shalena Adriana Kok and the cooperation with my friends plus lots of patients, I can finally manage my time in doing this coursework. Through this coursework, I had learnt the value of cooperation when my lecturer, Miss Emisharina with her briefing and my friends when they always helps me to find the information needed and helps me with my grammar indeed my grammar is not strong enough. And thanks to Mr.Shamsul Ali in guiding us the APA format in writing the bibliography. All the information that I gained through this coursework is very worthy for me to practice it.Thank you.
