Core Value 1. My work demonstrates that I used a variety of social and interactive practices that involve recursive stages of exploration, discovery, conceptualization, and development.

Throughout this semester, I have used a variety of social and interactive practices that involve recursive stages of exploration, discovery, conceptualization, and development. I have requested, received, and responded to feedback from my professor. One example of when I did this was for my rebuttal rewrite. I believe that I did a really good job at taking suggestions and adding them to my piece as well as making corrections. For example, one issue I had was “switching agents” too often by using words such as “people” or “you”. By getting feedback, this was called to my attention and I was able to change that throughout my entire research paper. This was difficult to do, but the “not because” exercise we did in class where we had to change the wording prepared me for editing my own paper. I think I’ve really improved in catching mistakes like that and now am able to correct them myself.

Core Value 2. My work demonstrates that I read critically, and that I placed texts into conversation with one another to create meaning by synthesizing ideas from various discourse communities. 

I believe that my work demonstrates that I read critically. Throughout the semester, we have been given many assignments that require reading texts and responding to them. I believe that I now have the ability to read arguments closely in order to interpret and understand an author’s messages. Also, I am able to critically evaluate, critique, and question those messages. I think that this can be seen through my work on the Purposeful Summaries because I had to read and analyze what the author said, and then write it in my own words. I think I was able to achieve this pretty well. Doing this task improved my critical thinking and reading skills. I have improved at reading someone else’s work and rephrasing and telling it from my perspective.

Core Value 3. My work demonstrates that I rhetorically analyzed the purpose, audience, and contexts of my own writing and other texts and visual arguments.

I believe that my work demonstrates that I rhetorically analyzed the purpose, audience, and contexts of my own writing and other texts and visual arguments. One example of this is my visual rhetoric analysis. When doing this assignment, I had to look very closely and learn to be extremely descriptive. For every few seconds of the video, I wrote an analysis on what I thought was going on, and described things to the reader as if they had never seen it. For example, I was very specific in describing the opening shot of the family at the dinner table. I described everything from how many people were there to what they were eating. From the way things looked, I made the assumption that it was a family party or celebration of some sort, as was correct in the end.

Core Value 4: My work demonstrates that I have met the expectations of academic writing by locating, evaluating, and incorporating illustrations and evidence to support my own ideas and interpretations.

I think that my work demonstrates that I have met the expectations of academic writing by locating, evaluating, and incorporating illustrations and evidence to support my own ideas and interpretations. I believe that this is a really important skill to have. By finding sources, you provide your reader with the evidence necessary for them to trust what you are trying to tell them. One example of when I did this is in my definition argument. Throughout this argument, I used many different sources. I found many sources throughout that argument in order to defend my claims. I feel that the quotes that I selected really helped to back up my ideas and claims.

Core Value 5. My work demonstrates that I respect my ethical responsibility to represent complex ideas fairly and to the sources of my information with appropriate citation.

I believe that my work this semester demonstrates that I respect my ethical responsibility to represent complex ideas fairly and to the sources of my information with appropriate citation. I think that mty annotated bibliography shows this very well. In my annotated bibliography, I described each article and how specifically I used each quote from the articles. I also explained the ways in which the articles improved my research paper, giving credit to the authors. I understand how important it is to respect each author, and also how to use information from articles in my pieces while still including my original thoughts.

    When you come back to this post to improve your links, Nugget, consider combining these three choppy sentences into one good one:
