Core Value 1. My work demonstrates that I used a variety of social and interactive practices that involve recursive stages of exploration, discovery, conceptualization, and development.

During the process of  researching for my proposal argument I was able to come across multiple sources that I could use. The creation of this paper really was a multi stage process due to the fact that for every source that I had there multiple links on that one source to different sources. I was able to take info from one source and expand on that info by having a more specific source to use from that source. For every bit of information I was able to find there was just more and more information that I was able to discover.

Core Value 2. My work demonstrates that I read critically, and that I placed texts into conversation with one another to create meaning by synthesizing ideas from various discourse communities. 

Being an athlete for basically all my life and experiencing multiple sports I was able to not only use resources to dig deep into the evolution of sport but I was able to use that information and my own experience to put together a definition. I have watched many different variations of sports in different times so it was easy for me to really pick out what was different in each variation. I was able to really compare my knowledge and what I could find while researching and I was really able to expand my knowledge and further the true evolution of sports.

Core Value 3. My work demonstrates that I rhetorically analyzed the purpose, audience, and contexts of my own writing and other texts and visual arguments.

“I want to get in-depth about the short term and long term affects of speeding and the possible outcomes that could be possible.” In this quote I really wanted the audience to know how far in depth I would be going to really prove my argument. It was my shouting call to really drag people in and make them want to read more. It puts a thought into someones head that as someone who may live in a neighborhood this could really benefit you to read. That quote could allow for someone to take what Ive talked about and possibly expand on my ideas.

Core Value 4: My work demonstrates that I have met the expectations of academic writing by locating, evaluating, and incorporating illustrations and evidence to support my own ideas and interpretations.

For my Causal Argument paper I really focused on one main source that I found. I did incorporate a few other sources but I did not use much information from than I did the one I referenced. This source was able to give me great statistics that I was able to use to better my argument and further knowledge that I may have not known before. I was able to take those statistics and combine it with my own knowledge to create better ideas that would have a better chance at succeeding.

Core Value 5. My work demonstrates that I respect my ethical responsibility to represent complex ideas fairly and to the sources of my information with appropriate citation. 

In the Casual Paper I can’t be sure that my ideas that I put out will be 100% successful. By using the information I obtained from resources and mixing that with my own could be a good combination. I think that when reading my argument readers may argue against that neighborhoods and school zones are two completely different things. Also the claim that cops do not really seem to care about neighborhoods. Both of those claims are really out of the blue and kind of specific but not specific enough to the point where readers may want to know more on why I think that.
