Core Value I. My work demonstrates that I used a variety of social and interactive practices that involve recursive stages of exploration, discovery, conceptualization, and development.
Writing is a place to explore, discover, conceptualize, and develop. It involves an multistage (evolution), and recursive (repeating). Writing does not come so easy to everyone and if someone says that they are great, I say nobody is great because they must practice and keep practicing to be great at something, it requires repetition and peer review to understand what you did wrong. Once you know your flaws and correct them you still will never be great because you never stop learning, and you will always be stuck practicing to be better than before. This semester I haven’t taken feedback to hear as much and try to improve as I did last semester. My work has demonstrated a few flaws here and there but it also have proven what it is worth. For example my stone money assignment wasn’t the best but with some advice the stone money rewrite was one of my great improvements of revising and improving.
Core Value II. My work demonstrates that I placed texts into conversation with one another to create meaning by synthesizing ideas from various discourse communities.
How I demonstrate this work is by picturing myself in which ever topic that I am writing about and try to put my perspective on this topic but at the same time implement texts from different sources that I gather information from. For example in class we got this visual rhetoric assignment and as a class we went through a 30 second video trying to understand what is happening in the video with no audio and at the same time have detailed descriptions what we think is happening within the first 0 secs Prof Hodges helped me identify more details within the video for my rewrite. The video assignment was to watch every few seconds of it with no sound and then make assumptions of what the people are saying, feeling, or doing and then create a scene in the scene they are in.
Core Value III. My work demonstrates that I rhetorically analyzed the purpose, audience, and contexts of my own writing and other texts and visual arguments.
Understanding audience, purpose, and context is a multiple step process. The audience represents the people you are displaying your information to. The audience are the critiques of your paper, movie or review. The purpose is about why you are writing what you are writing, what is the point of your essay, movie or article. The final step is the context which is the outside detail you mix into your writing and cite it. For me to adjust my writing I must know the audience I am presenting to like what age group they are in. For example the assignment that best fits this core value is my white paper this was where I analyzed the purpose of essay especially have two working hypothesis.
Core Value IV: 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 have met the expectations of academic writing through writing my proposal5+. The proposal 5+ was an assignment preparing ourselves for a big research essay. We were asked in class to be prepared for a big research essay and to have at least 5 sources with description of what the source is about and what does it prove or will prove. I learned a lot from the proposal because it helped me brainstorm and understand what the articles are about and try to piece them together to form a well written essay. Through writing this proposal5 I have interpreted my own ideas and have connected it to the supported statements within each source especially the biggest 5 corporate scandals helped me see more drama that I did not know. Incorporating these illustrations have really helped me arrange my ideas and not overthink to much and overwhelm myself.
Core Value V. My work demonstrates that I respect my ethical responsibility to represent complex ideas fairly and to the sources of my information with appropriate citation.
My work is my own work and I respect my ethical responsibility to represent complex ideas fairly. Before ever submitting a completed essay or research paper it must have a work cited because I know that it is not fair to steal ideas from other writers who put their time in writing terrific sources and then to not get credited. I believe in appropriate citation but at times it gets difficult citing sources where some of the following information is missing. Easy bib has helped me with any kind of format I wanted and/or needed. Before writing anything I respected the rules of academic honesty by citing any source I used or quote from any article. I can making the annotated bibliography has helped me write the 1000 words for each argument especially finding statistical data by Peter Arlow who writes about students and adults who are more likely to be unethical.
