Reflective Statement- Killroy513

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.

Finding supporting information to back up my essays arguments was a challenge. I had to figure out what to use and when it was appropriate to use it. For my research paper I went to my local library and found information regarding the prohibition. I also used a good amount of online sources because it was easier to find specific information. All are properly cited in my paper.

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. 

All my works have demonstrated a conversation of texts to form a strong argument and engaged the reader. Being able to explain and “slice” together sentences to form a well made paragraph in my essays takes away the “fluff” and gives the reader more to read about the specific topic. In the end my writings progressed and became well rounded incorporating a counter-intuitive like structure hitting all points and arguments.

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.

All the works I submitted this semester were written with the intent to make a legitimate argument or understanding of a topic selected. One of my favorite works I had the chance to write was the visual re-write. With this work I was able to describe what I saw in my own words second by second in the video I chose. At the time I did not fully understand the assignment, but with very good feed back I was able to edit my post and submit a very good representation of what I was able to write. The descriptions I wrote made the video easier to understand and displayed how one goes from another.

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.

With all the essays I have wrote, I try to keep them easy to understand and get my point across so that the reader can relate. My works are backed with strong supporting evidence to insure validity of my points. With my white paper I made sure to have specific supporting evidence to back up my claims.

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. 

The work cited is one of the most important parts to an essay. It shows where you got your information from. Since grammar school, I have always cited my sources and used the website citation machine to do so. Being able to use this website makes it easy to cite the sources used to back up my arguments. All my works that I submitted were written respectfully and properly cited.
