Tuesday July 26, 2022

The purpose of this assignment is to reflect on your research process for the annotated bibliography and your overall feelings toward your course writing and assignments. To do this, you will compose a well-organized essay that incorporates quotations from the sources used for the Annotated Bibliography.

The reflection continues with you exploring your overall progress with the writing process.

You will be using the following in your reflection:

Annotated Bibliography (AB)
Icebreaker Discussion
Writing Activity 1 (WA1)
Midterm Survey
Writing Tutor forms
The first part of your analysis will:

Describe your research process for the AB Assignment, summarizing the process, your findings, and using the sources in your analysis with direct quotations and proper MLA citations.
The second part of your analysis will:

Describe your own growth in the writing process, what you have learned, how you have improved, and how much confidence you have in your own writing. Note: While you will reference your discussions, writing activities and writing tutor forms, you will not have to quote directly from them.
The third part of your analysis will:

Describe how you will be using writing going forward, where you may use it, and to answer the question:
Is the ability to write academically something that will benefit you in your future endeavors? How? Explain.
Note: No new research is required for this essay. The sources used must be the sources used for the annotated bibliography assignment. New sources must be approved by the instructor.

Note about using your own discussions, writing tutor forms, and Discussions: These materials will not need a works cited entry or internal citations unless you are directly quoting another person. This is allowed, but is not a requirement. It is better to internalize the information to answer the reflective questions of the essay.

Part I: Why you picked your topic, what you already knew, and what did you learn?

Did you learn your mistakes from writing tutor visits and professor feedback?
Have you been able to highlight your writing strengths?
How do you feel about creating your own topics and using critical thinking/research to alter existing topics?
Are you apprehensive about writing assignments in other courses?
Note: You do not have to answer all of these questions, but you need to focus on your own experiences and growth.
Part III: Where will academic writing present itself outside of college?

Reflect on how your experiences with academic writing and research will happen outside of college and college courses.
How will you be using writing in your other career and life endeavors?
