Assignment1 Writing Strategies
Beginning an essay can often be the most difficult portion. However when separated into small steps this process becomes well defined and much more manageable. During these first steps any writing that takes place is likely to be minimal and rough. This is acceptable as you realize you are in the prewriting stage and that you have more writing and revising ahead of you.
For this Discussion you will reflect on your own research strategy and how you have (or perhaps have not) used a strategy such as note-taking underlining highlighting etc. in the past to gather and assess the main ideas from a journal article. Based on what you have learned from the weeks Learning Resources you will share your thoughts and experiences on use of research in your own writing practice.
To prepare for this Discussion:
Review the Learning Resources on arguments and critical reading and the infographic on Analysis.
Reflect on your research process in relation to understanding an authors argument or main idea.
You may reflect on past or current examples of your research process including this Assignment.
Posta 1- to 2-paragraph reflection on your research process describing components that you currently use as well as any components that you could use more effectively. (Note:You may choose to reflect specifically on your approach to this Discussion assignment in relation to your writing process.)
