Reflection allows us the opportunity to process knowledge and then apply that knowledge. Through reflection, we can come to an understanding and interpret what we have learned.
Reflection allows us the opportunity to process knowledge
Firstly, reflection allows us the opportunity to process knowledge and then apply that knowledge.
Secondly, through reflection, we can come to an understanding and interpret what we have learned.
This semester, on several occasions, we have used reflection in this way; in this final project, you will return to this definition of reflection.
Thirdly, you have also been developing your theory of wri8ng—i.e., you have been exploring whether you enact your theory of writing in your own composition. As a result of this, you have had the opportunity to create a knowledge base of writing and its practices. In this final reflection, you will be returning to your theory and develop an essay in which you discuss several questions, including (but not limited to):
Firstly, define your theory of writing.
Secondly, what was your theory of writing coming into Critical Writing? How has your theory of writing evolved with each piece of composing?
Thirdly, what has contributed to your theory of writing the most?
Fourthly , what is the relationship between your theory of writing and how you create (d) knowledge?
Further, how might your theory of writing be applied to other writing situations both inside and outside of the classroom?
Project #4: Reflection-in-Presentation (Signature Assignment)
Details Due Dates
Length: 1,500-2,000 words No First Draft
Audience: general academic
Citation style: APA
No Revision Draft
For each of these questions you will need to support your ideas with your previous wri8ng in this course and, through these examples, interpret what you have learned. You will create a compelling argument for whatever you decide to write for this, supported by evidence and analysis of the work completed in class this semester.
This final reflection is an opportunity for you to demonstrate your increased knowledge in writing—the practices of writing, the key terms, and any specific skills you’ve acquired.
Think of this piece as another move in the evolu8on of your theory of wri8ng, and a chance for you to fully explore yourself as a writer and maker of knowledge.”
