    -We look at 2 different versions of a joke
    -One is short and to the point while the other goes on for a while.
    -Apply this to your writing, shorter and to the point will make your argument clear and concise
    -Why can’t you trust atoms? Because they make up everything.

    -Reflective statement and annotated bibliography are both due before class on 12/7
    -Look over core values to see exactly what the requirements are and apply my process to it for the reflective statement
    -Pull sources from your white paper for the annotated bibliography with some minor changes
    -Strive for 10 sources in the annotated bibliography to demonstrate the research you have done

    -Portfolio contents:
    Research Position Paper (1 piece)
    Annotated Bibliography (1 piece)
    Visual Rhetoric Rewrite (1 piece)
    Self-Reflective Statement (1 piece)
    (5, 6, 7, and 8) Two of the following: (4 pieces)
    Definition Rewrite, plus the original Definition Argument
    Causal Rewrite, plus the original Causal Argument
    Rebuttal Rewrite, plus the original Rebuttal Argument

    -Include titles to your essay, but do not include “Definition Essay: Title”

    -Look into the grade levels posts to see what each grade looks like starting at a D-level paragraph

    -Start your argument by grabbing attention
    -If it starts with something that everyone knows about, the reader will not be as interested

    In class today, we first discussed a riddle regarding jokes. We discussed two versions of the same knock-knock joke, both of which have different tones. When trying to say what you mean, you may get the tone wrong and spoil the effect you were going for. This is usually done by falling for ready-made language or by overwriting what could be written simply. We then reviewed the last two due dates for the semester, which are the self-reflective statement and the annotated bibliography. For the reflective statement, you must describe how you met each of the core values for this course. You must also provide a link to a previous assignment for each. Core value 1 describes that writing is a practice that involves a multi-stage, recursive and social process. Core value 2 describes that critical analysis is necessary for listening to and questioning texts and arriving at a thoughtful understanding of those texts. Core value 3 describes that writing is shaped by audience, purpose, and context. Core value 4 describes that information literacy is essential to the practice of writing. Core value 5 describes that writing has power and comes with ethical responsibilities. Your annotated bibliography must have 10-15 sources, and for each source describe the background of the source and how you used it. We then went over what should be included in our Portfolio. We will verify our Portfolio on Tuesday so that we can schedule our grade conference. We reviewed completed examples of Portfolio submissions, so we have versions to refer to when compiling our own. Lastly, we watched a video regarding how Stephen Hawking was wrong.

    Riddle
    -Just like a bad joke, writing can be overly-complicated or overwritten and it spoils the writing
    -How we deliver our writing influences whether our writing will be good or bad
    Reflection
    -In the reflection statement, we must understand the core values of the FYWP and explain if and how we practiced them throughout the writing process
    -These are the core values:
    Writing is a practice that involves a multi-stage, recursive and social process.
    Close and critical reading/analysis are necessary for listening to and questioning texts, arriving at a thoughtful understanding of those texts, and joining the academic and/or public conversations represented by those texts.
    Writing is shaped by audience, purpose, and context.
    Information literacy is essential to the practice of writing.
    Writing has power and comes with ethical responsibilities.
    This is due Tuesday the 7th
    Annotated Bibliography
    -The annotated bibliography includes a lot of the same information that is in the white paper
    -Strive to add 10 sources to the annotated bibliography-even if you used 5 or 6 in the essay, you can add the sources that you referenced, but weren’t as influential
    -This is due Tuesday the 7th
    Portfolio Requirements
    -There are 8 parts to the portfolio:
    Two short arguments with earlier drafts (definition+rebuttal, causal+definition, rebuttal+causal)

    Self-Reflective Statement
    Formal explanation of why you fulfilled the first-year writing program. Core values in the FYWP.
    Core Value 1: Writing is a practice that involves a multi-stage, recursive and social process. Your advancement in writing, analyzing literature, etc. Demonstrated through your short arguments and your rewrites.
    Core Value 2: Close and critical/reading analysis for listening to and questioning texts, arriving at a thoughtful understanding of those texts. Understanding why the text has meaning.
    Core Value 3: Writing is shaped by audience, purpose, and context.
    Core Value 4: Informational literacy is essential to the practice of writing. Visual rhetoric assignment is the appropriate model for this.
    Core Value 5: Writing has power and comes with ethical responsibilities. Has a lot to do with your obligation to respect other’s opinions and communicate with them fairly. Treat each with respect and do not take others out of context.
    Annotated Bib

    Today in class we first started talking about the self-reflective statement and how it is required for all students in composition 2. This is your guide to the first-year writing program devotes a very large section to a full description of the self-reflective statement. It is intended to argue whether or not you learned the core values. Core value 1 is writing a practice that involves a multi-stage, recursive and social process. Core value 2 is a close and critical reading/analysis is necessary for listening to and questioning texts, arriving at a thoughtful understanding of texts. Core value 3 is that writing is shaped by audience, purpose, and context. Core value 4 is that information literacy is essential to the practice of writing. Core value 5 is writing has power and comes with ethical responsibilities. The annotated bibliography includes a background of your sources and how they were used. The portfolio includes 8 pieces. This includes 2 short arguments, both draft, and rewrite. The rest of the arguments are the visual rhetoric, annotated bibliography, and reflective statement.

    Next Tuesday’s class will be our last formal class, and before we get our grades we will have meetings on our grades. The core values of this first-year writing class are: writing is a multi-stage social process, critical reading of a writing piece is important to understand and use those texts, writing is shaped by audience, purpose, and context, information literacy is essential to writing, and writing has power and comes with ethical responsibilities. The work that will go into our portfolios is 2/3 of the essays that we have written, the researched position argument the visual rhetoric rewrite, annotated bibliography, and the reflective statement. When we come into class on Tues, we will check in to verify the portfolio is completed and then the final grade review meeting will be scheduled. After verifying the portfolio we can still edit the papers but only up to when the work will be graded.

    Riddles can be very clever and simple, for example “Did you hear about the girl missing her left side of her body? Don’t worry she’s all right now.”
    Make sure to keep up with Portfolio deadlines, 12/7 make sure to get everything in there for Tuesday, Portfolio check.
    Portfolio must include;
    Research Position Paper, Annotated Bibliography, Visual Rhetoric Rewrite and Self-Reflective Statement. As well as two of the three; Definition Rewrite plus the original Definition Argument, Causal Rewrite plus the original Causal Argument or Rebuttal Rewrite plus the original Rebuttal Argument
    Go revise as much as possible, there is time and you need to get. Be mindful of how much you write in your bibliography.
    After everything is verified you can still edit and you better cause you will need it.

    Today we began our day with a few jokes. We stared with a two different knock knock jokes that displayed different tones. One was a short joke and the other went on for a while. There is something we can take from the jokes to incinerate into our wring to improve. We want to be short and to the point. We also have two assignments due before class 12/7. We will also go over our portfolio on that day.
