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.
During the course an assignment I did that called for recursive feedback as stated in core value I, was my rebuttal argument. In my rebuttal argument I demonstrated my point of view for my research paper. I discovered sources that helped back up my thesis and sources that had a different point of view from mine. When I received feedback it allowed me to make many corrections to my writing and the feedback will help me create a stronger rewrite that guides me into my own thoughts on the topic. Professor Hodges, provided thorough feedback that will allow me to develop my writing in a fashion that is comprehensive and understandable.
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.
During the course an assignment I did that called for synthesizing ideas from various discourse communities stated in core value II would be Safer Saw. In this assignment we had to search a variety of sources and then include summaries about the claims that were made in the article. Then understand the claims that each article was making, and put them all into categories such as factual claims, opinion, evaluation or proposals. Next we had to explain the logic behind the claim. This particular assignment is something I never had much practice with so it was very helpful and is a tool I will always know for my future. This assignment was also interesting because we had to read though each article and search though the text for the claim. An article can sometimes explain a claim in many different ways, so sometime it was difficult.
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.
During the course I demonstrated that I was able to rhetorically analyze the purpose, audience, and contexts of my own writing and other texts and visual arguments as stated in core value III, this was demonstrated in Visual Rhetoric/ Visual Rewrite. The visual rhetoric was an assignment that I enjoyed doing and learned a lot from. I learned to use images instead of words to create meaning, emotions, judgments in viewers. My overall explanation of the video was presented through my writing of the images that I saw. With these images I was able to analyze them and translate each image into overall context meaning.
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.
During the course I demonstrated that I have met the expectations of academic writing by locating, evaluating, and incorporating illustrations and evidence to support my own ideas and interpretations as stated in core value IV, this was demonstrated in my proposal +5 assignment. During this assignment I exemplified that I was able to incorporate necessary sources that would provide quality evidence that supported my thesis. I was also able to show my ability to analyze these sources and translate them into brief summaries that thoroughly explained how these sources were related to my thesis. I located these sources through Google Scholar and Rowan library. Lastly in this assignment, I was given a opportunity explain the true meaning of these articles as well as show what message the article partied.
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.
During the course I demonstrated that I respect my ethical responsibility to represent complex ideas fairly and to the sources of my information with appropriate citation as stated in core value in V. This core value was demonstrated through my Annotated bibliography. In this assignment I was asked to locate scholarly sources that supported my topic, as well as incorporate these sources into my research paper. I not only demonstrated how to incorporate these sources into my essay, but I also showed that I properly cited the beginning and end of every source to assure that the authors received full credit for their work.
