Best Practices & Future Plan

  • Title of the Practice:Open Essay Competition
  • Context require initiation of practice:
  • The department of English has observed that the students are more interested in creative writing but they have some technical problems regarding the structure, grammar, and vocabulary. To increase vocabulary the students must either read or recite words. Then the idea came into mind that if they participate in an open essay competition and if they allow going through books, the internet, and other sources they can improve their competency of the language, and hence an essay does more than inform or persuade a reader. The process of writing an essay teaches a student how to acknowledge a new topic and organize its thoughts into an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Essay writing objectives apply to expository and persuasive essays on a variety of topics.

Objectives of the Practice

  • Every essay should clearly state a principle — the main idea of the essay. A mere overview of a topic that does not take a stand one way or the other is not a principle. The main idea of the essay should be obvious to the reader.
  • The student’s essay should be well organized and should not stray from his main topic. The essay should start by introducing the reader to the main points that the writer will cover in the essay. It should use transitions from general to specific to present the information. The essay should end with a conclusion that sums up the main points and restates the principle.
  • The student should provide detailed information about its principle, supported by reputable, authoritative references of other writers. The student should make its strongest points first, including just one main point in each paragraph. It should anticipate and rebut her opponent’s arguments against the principle and discuss plausible alternatives to the opinion.
  • The student should use a consistent, academic voice. His essay should conform to assigned style guidelines and should be free of misspellings and grammatical errors. The writer should cite all references in the proper format, and each reference must support the material for which he cited it.

The Practice:

At the initial stage, we discuss among the faculties of the department regarding the topics of the open essay competition. This open essay competition is for all programs such as B. A., B.Sc. And B.Com. First, second and third-year students. As per as the topic is concerned, we give more stress on the problems regarding the youth in the present scenario. We also have another intention that students must aware of the social problems and they have an opportunity to find out solutions according to their level best. We announce the open essay competition with the prior permission of the head of the institution. And no such topic is selected which makes any controversial debate and opposition to the policies of the institution. Students have the choice to select one of the topics they have given then for judging criteria; we nominate three different faculties of the languages to judge in a proper way. The open essay competition helps them to participate in state, national-level competitions. Students are motivated with the help of such competitions.

Obstacles faced if any and strategies adopted to overcome them

In an open essay competition, there are no more obstacles found in conducting the competition. Still, ours is the newer practice and if in the future, we come across any obstacles we would like to overcome with discussing among the faculties of the department and with the discussion with the head of the institution.

Impact of the Practice

  • Essay competitions give more confidence to the students in writing essays in general.
  • Teach you how to structure your essays to appeal to the readers.
  • It gives a few pointers specifically for Writing Scholarship Essays.
  • It tells about resources to use in writing essays.
  • It improves the language competency of the student’s Sources.

Resources Required

To organize an open essay competition, we require very few resources. First, we require faculties to nominate as examiners and in a higher education institute we are easily available with faculties belongs to the Department of Humanities. The second resource is a wide range of books and in every college the library facility is available. Now in the present scenario, there are E-resources available.

Future Plan

  • To Start PG course.
  • To extend the English language Lab.
  • To Continue the Certificate Course in Communicative English.
  • To Council & Deliver Lectures for Competitive Examination (Regarding English Language).
