Scholarly Rhetorical Analysis

Decent Essays
I personally really liked this workshop that we did in class and I think it should be added to the schedule for future assignments. Reading the sample essays as a class and breaking them a part piece by piece made it easier to understand what you are looking for in our Scholarly Rhetorical Analysis. I was able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each paper. But I also heard new opinions from peers that I overlooked when reading it by myself. I think that was the most beneficial to me because if something did not work in one of the essays I could look at my own essay and try to avoid doing that myself. During this workshop our class was able to talk about the pros and cons of each draft. Some students agreed on certain points and others

    Finally, revising drafts and receiving feedback from my teacher and classmates has helped for the most part. While I seemed to find constructive feedback from my teacher, my classmates could have been more supportive. While reading some feedback all I would get is compliments for some people, while its flattering to be complimented, I would rather have tips on how my writing get better.

    With the peer feedback I was able to take what was wrong with my paper and fix it before turning it in for a final grade which I found as excellent. This allowed me to change any errors that I had not previously come across. Also producing a mid-draft allowed me to go back and re-read my essay after not having it in front of me for some time. It allowed me to re-read my essay fresh allowing me to produce new ideas and thoughts I could put into my essays. I believe this class helped me improve on my writing as a whole.…

    In the self-evaluation you actually think about how you did each essay from start to the final. It made you realized the good and the bad out of each essay and how you could improve in the next one. Also, the decompression was a thing I like because of the concern and comment area.

    It showed us that people can use rhetoric to prove something but that not everything is what it seems. The course has provided great examples to show how rhetoric is used in everyday issues. From taking this course I feel confident enough to move on and take upper level writing courses, Also the course made us write relevant papers that later on proves to help with studies that involve my major more directly. Artifact one shows how the class taught us to be mindful of the consequences of what we write because every action has a reaction that later has positive or negative results. Actifact two shows that we learn from our failures.…

Next, we had to draft an outline to better clarify our idea before starting to write our first draft essay .It was during the practicing of the outline that I improved my writing organization, which has been one of my issue in the previous classes.

    When distinguishing the readings we would do class discussions. Class discussions help a lot, because we get to understand the points of views of other students in the class. If I wouldn 't understand some quotes from the readings I would understand right after the discussions, because someone was bound to talk about it. My instructor Ms.Trujillo would also help us when we wouldnt understand concepts the author would speak about in the articles. When determining essays it helps when we get into groups, because we discuss the readings to share our perspectives on the…

    All of the constructive criticism on my projects help me understand where I can fix my writing. I now know that I should try to put more detail into my writing, work on what tense I write in, and focus on revising my paper to catch silly spelling or grammar mistakes.

Also, this semester being able to have individual conference times helped me to feel confident in my work. It helped me to see mistakes that I did not see when I was reading my own papers.…
