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.

I best demonstrated Core Value 1 in my white paper assignment. In the White paper Assignment, I looked through many sources, works, social experiments, etc. and I had to dive deep into each one. I showed that I could give backgrounds of different references I then figured out how I would develop the references into my own paper. Using tools like the Rowan database and google scholar helped me find interesting and elusive references.   White Paper

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 best demonstrated Core Value 2 in the Definition paper. In this paper, I used multiple different sources to try and put together a common definition of happiness. I used different ideas from very influential people and sources to try to clearly state what my definition was and to make my paper flow better. I used multiple different views and causes of happiness to form my own definition that clearly showed core value 2.

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 best demonstrated Core Value 3 in my Visual Rhetoric assignment. The assignment’s goal was to dive deep into the short video clips. I had to pause the video every few seconds to explain exactly what was happening in and try to figure out what the purpose was behind each scene. Also, I used the passing scenes to try and understand the background of what was happening, and I had to clearly state what was going on. This assignment showed a clear rhetorical analysis of the short clips.  Visual Rhetoric  

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 demonstrated Core Value 4 in my Research paper. Throughout the whole year and in each different portion of this paper I was using different sources to help develop my ideas and back up my arguments. I used around 10 different and unique sources in my paper to help get my point across to the reader. Although this assignment was challenging, I believe that the research paper showed that I could evaluate and incorporate different evidence and ideas into a paper to back up and prove my argument.

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 citations. 

I best demonstrated Core Value 5 in my Annotated Bibliography. In this assignment, I had to cite all the references I used in my paper and explain how I used each one to prove my point. I had to cite each website correctly and show where I used it in my paper, I also had to cite the authors correctly in my paper. I put each reference with a link and citation to go back to the website, so I feel that this assignment shows Core Value 5 the best.
