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.
When I was first told about the assignment, I had a completely different topic in mind which was quickly shutdown by the professor. I struggled to find a topic that I would find interesting to write my paper about. After doing much research, I realized that this is a topic I was not familiar with and could personally help me become more productive. It was difficult for me to write a paper that was not all over the place, I believe the feedback on my definition argument assisted me in developing better work from there.
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.
My Causal argument paper demonstrates that I read critically and that I placed texts into conversation because I was going back and forth providing evidence of the cause and effects. i used two studies to synthesize and use for this paper. Using different articles took a lot of synthesizing in order to make the paper flow correctly. It was difficult to not be repetitive throughout the different papers we had to write.
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 rhetorically analyzed the purpose, audience, and context, by not only talking about productivity in the workplace, but in students’ lives as well. I tried to target different audiences since my topic can be beneficial to anyone. I used visual arguments by using everyday examples that many people can relate to. I emphasized the importance of taking a “good” break to help put in perspective that a person may not be productive due to the unhealthy breaks they take.
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
I have done many research on this topic. Most of the points I made were backed up by different studies conducted by different psychologists. All work is my own and I provided citations for anything that was not my original thought. The studies I provided backup everything I have mentioned in my paper.
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.
Everything that i have cited, I also explained in my own words after providing the appropriate citation. Every paper I submitted has its references which were used to provide the correct information about the link of taking a break and productivity.
