Question description

Unit I Journal

Instructions

In Lesson 1, we discussed audience awareness. As you move forward in our course, think about audience. Think about audience in all things that you do. If your coffee is not right at Starbucks, then think about the barista as your audience before you air your grievances. If you need to bring something up to your superior, consider how you are automatically aware of audience as you plan your strategy.

For this journal, consider all of the different audiences you encounter throughout the day on a weekly basis. Who do you talk to and encounter? How do you change your approach with each audience? Do you speak differently to friends than you do to your children? If you have to call an insurance company, do you speak differently to the agent on the phone than to your grandmother? Describe at least two interactions and how they are different from one another. You might want to include two interactions that describe your life situation, like where you work or live.

Your response should be at least 200 words. No references or citations are necessary.


Unit II

Instructions

In Lesson 2, in the 2.1 Introduction section, we discussed that there is a process to writing, but that there is no one specific, start-to-finish process. Instead, the process is cyclical as we learned throughout the lesson. Additionally, you learned that it is important to understand yourself as a writer and that you have your own process.

Please respond to this prompt by reflecting upon your own writing process. You may choose to use the guiding questions/prompts below as a way to begin your reflection; however, you do not have to address all of the questions. The objective of this reflection is to become better acquainted with the process that you go through when writing.

  • Recalling the last correspondence that you wrote, what was your process? For example, if the last correspondence you wrote was an email, what was your process in writing that email?
  • Do you approach each academic writing assignment in the same way?
  • What are your feelings about writing? Have you always had these feelings?
  • Do you have the same feelings about all writing or just writing for which you will receive a grade?
  • Do you begin by gathering your thoughts or by writing down everything you know?
  • Do you always follow the same process every time you write, or does your process seem to change depending upon what you are writing?
  • How does your process change (if at all) between writing prepared for work versus writing prepared for your academics?
  • What is your best outline of your process for an essay?
  • Did you find any of the materials in Unit II about process particularly helpful or inspirational? Why?
  • Did you find the notion of "invention" as a canon of rhetoric to be interesting or productive? Why?
  • What was your process for writing this reflection?

Remember that this is a piece of reflective writing, and while we tend to consider reflective writing to be about "how far we have come," it is not necessary for that to be the case. Looking in the mirror at our reflection is not an act about the passage of time or about growth; it is about being able to see ourselves where before we could not. So remember to be kind to yourself. You are a beginning writer, and this is an exercise about discovering who you are as a writer so that we can work together to build who you will be.


Unit IV

Instructions

Unit IV has focused on ways that you can become a better student through understanding the assignment; communicating your needs to your support network; writing a professional email; and reading, processing, and responding to feedback.

Consider moments in your life when you have received truly eye opening feedback. You may consider this moment in the context of your academic career, professional career, or personal life. Use the following as guiding questions:

  • What was the experience like?
  • What did you learn about yourself?
  • How did you respond to the feedback at the time that it was given?
  • Did you see it as constructive criticism or as an attack on your work?
  • How did you learn from the experience?
  • In what ways did the experience help you to grow in terms of the skills you were trying to master?

Your response should be at least 200 words. No references or citations are necessary.
