Three key problems in undergraduate academic English composition classes in Taiwan can be identified which restrict student achievement: differences in educational cultures (both L1 and L2 education cultures as well as differences between L1 high school education culture and L1 undergraduate education culture); issues dealing with the ownership of ideas and limitations in frameworks of approaching foreign language study. To ameliorate these problems, Foreign Language and Literature majors completed a semester-long assignment wherein they compiled their own individual treasuries of information which they felt would be a useful reference to consult when writing future English compositions. An analysis of their work approach to this assignment and their judgment in selecting information for inclusion in their treasury is provided. Finally, recommendations for the further implementation of this assignment are given.

Uncontrolled Keywords: Teaching writing, writing in a foreign language, cross-culture writing, cross-cultural teaching, writing portfolio, Taiwanese students, Taiwanese studying habits
