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.
Core value I is to “Understand that writing is a practice which involves a multi- stage, recursive, and social progress.” This Core Value means to me that writing takes time, it evolves multiple processes and recursive stages of exploration and development. This Core Value consists of Non linear composing activities and reading, inventing and drafting . We will experience writing as a collection of practices and processes that involve multiple, recursive stages of exploration, discovery, conceptualization and development.

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.
Core Value II is to “Understand that close and critical reading/ analysis allows writers to understand how and why texts create a meaning” This Core Value means to me that writing conveys meaning. Text builds upon and responds to other texts. Explore and develop ideas by closely analyzing texts. Texts are not limited. Students come to understand that writing, all writing, not just their own is a process that creates, shapes and conveys meaning and that texts represent conversations between self, other texts and the world. Meaning is generated intertextually and builds upon and responds to other texts. The meaning of writing is represented in different ways, different settings, discipline and discourse communities.

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.
Core Value III is to “Understand that writing is shaped by audience, purpose, and context.” This Core Value means that students will understand writing as a communicative act which involves the creation of a purposeful message for a perceived audience. We can read our own texts and rhetorically analyze to see how we create different things to reach out to other students and ourselves. Students also understand that audience expectations, such as textual conventions, vary according to situations and genres.

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.
Core Value IV is to “Understand the role of information literacy in the practice of writing.” This Core Value means contextualizing your own writing and provide sources and evidence beyond their own personal experiences. Creating ideas of your own and developing skills to locate, evaluate and select appropriate information. Students learn the importance of illustrations and evidence to support their own ideas and interpretations. We will develop our information literacy skills in a digital environment and be able to locate and incorporate appropriate information to create rhetorically savvy writing.

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.
Core Value V is to “Understand the ethical dimensions of writing.” This Core Value means understanding writing through a person connection, relate to self. How we affect our writing, proper use of context, using correct citation, acknowledging information and accuracy. Students develop an understanding of their accountability to the intellectual community as a whole, and to the university in particular, which includes the practices associated with academic integrity. This Core Value helped me in all my writings because it taught me about academic integrity which is important in everything you do and to be honest about your writings and where they are coming from.
