Writing 1000/Lima Fall 2020
Due: November 24th, 2020
Objective: A reflective journal gives you an opportunity to engage, observe and record your learning progress. This assignment asks you to reflect on course content in a critical and analytical way. Evaluate the usefulness of Genre-based approach to analyse texts and understand their arguments, as well as a tool for writing academic texts. Reflect on course learning goals that you feel you have achieved:
- o Use Genre-based approach to recognize academic textual features
- o Summarize and criticize scholarly articles
- o Write clearly, concisely, and powerfully
- o Revise and reshape your writing and give generous, generative peer feedback
To guide your reflection process, consider the following questions:
- Can you apply genre theory to recognize rhetorical patterns in a text?
- Do you feel more equipped to find relevant information, make connections to other contexts and write these ideas (summarize and paraphrase) in your own words?
- Have you gained an understanding of these ideas to begin to apply them to other contexts both in reading and in writing assignments?
- How beneficial to you is the edit, review and revise your writing, as well as give, receive and apply feedback?
- Use our Discussion forum on Moodle to keep track of your learning process during the course: post comments, make questions, discuss and reflect on course materials. Your active participation, engagement in discussions will help you compile information that can be useful for your Reflective Journal.
- Write a 500-word reflective composition. Ensure you answer fully in your own words. Include any insights you gained from class, from classmates, or from other courses or contexts. Type up your responses; feel free to use the Word document as your template.
- Submit your final reflective journal on Moodle by the end of the day on Monday, November 24th.
