    -make sure the visual rhetoric is well detailed to make sure the viewers have a clear understanding of what is happening, since there is no sound.
    -the self reflective statement is a one-draft assignment explaining how you demonstrated the core values throughout this course:
    goal 1: understand that writing is a practice which involves a multi-stage, recursive and social process
    goal 2: understand that close and critical reading/analysis allows writers to understand how and why texts create meaning
    goal 3: understand that writing is shaped by an audience, purpose, and context
    goal 4: understand the role of information literacy in the practice of writing
    goal 5: understand the ethical dimensions of writing

    Every paper is an argument.
    SRE argues to the writing department that I learned the values.
    The writing department makes grammar errors too.
    Quoting someone out of context is like lying.
    SRE is not major.

    -Go back and look at the Visual assignment. Be as specific as humanly possible.
    -Choose one of the short argument papers. Do not put all 3 into the portfolio.
    -Write a good argument for the Self-Reflective statement. All writing should be an argument, and this is no different.
    -Show examples of rewriting and reviewing old material.
    -Use the template
    -ADD “works cited” and title to the research assignment
    -Keep revising and asking for feedback until may second

    Today we did a few house keeping things. To start we discussed the portfolio contents and specifications. Discussed deadlines for a majority of things that need to be finished. Discussed the the self-reflective statement assignment, it’s details, and when it is due. Became familiar with rate my professor and the date for the mandatory final meeting.

    • davidbdale says:

      That’s accurate, Nick, but it does precisely what your writing does every time, which is to “talk about” the content instead of summarizing it. Here it hardly matters, because the content was nothing memorable, but when the content is crucial, your method fails fatally.

      Compare a classmate’s notes about today’s meeting:

      —Every paper is an argument.
      —SRE argues to the writing department that I learned the values.
      —The writing department makes grammar errors too.
      —Quoting someone out of context is like lying.
      —SRE is not major.

      It doesn’t waste a word on “what we talked about.” Instead, it records, for the very specific needs of a specific individual, what was essential about the subject matter.

      Permit me an illustration, please. The lesson is “Defusing a Bomb.”

      Your 1/3 summary:

      Today we spent an hour on the topic of how to defuse a bomb. Timepiece types were discussed and the relative dangers they pose. Wiring patterns were also considered, and how technicians should approach a potentially fatal error.

      Your classmate’s 3/3 summary:

      Don’t cut the red wire!

      I hope the difference is clear. Please take this lesson to heart. It doesn’t mean I don’t respect you. It means I really care about the quality of your work.

    • davidbdale says:

      In response, I’d say, if you can, have your Portfolio complete by THU APR 27. That way, you can skip the MAY 02 meeting and schedule your Conference when we meet on Thursday.
