Author Identity Reflection and Revision Portfolio
Week 8: Writing Process Reflection
Author Identity Reflection and Revision Portfolio
Assignment Sheet and Rubric
Donald Shöene is a prolific writer whose 1983 seminal work celebrates the “Reflective Practitioner.” While we are not going to read this text for this course, I too find the act of reflection and self-evaluation to be a radical one, worthy of our time as writers and compositionist. For the final assignment of this course, the Author Identity and Revision Portfolio requires you to think about your growth and writing process holistically, taking notice of the changes you’ve made to your writing process and technique.
Audience and Purpose: In this course, you’ve worked in three major writing genres; a summary, rhetorical analysis, and research informed extended argument as well as completed various other writing tasks. Your audience for this paper is the Doane First-Year Writing Committee, a group of faculty who teach Comp I and Comp II and care deeply about the kinds and quality of writing our students are producing. This committee is interested in hearing how you describe the writing you’ve done, your interaction with the material we’ve covered from the book, what you think you’ve learned this semester, and how you view your own writing process. In order to complete this assignment, you need to gather the various texts you’ve composed for this course and following the below steps:
Step 1: In one sitting, read through drafts and final drafts from all four of your major assignments from this semester, including those with both peer and instructor feedback. This included the Brief Rhetorical Analysis, Formal Rhetorical Analysis, Annotated Bibliography, and Hybrid Argument Paper. This assignment is the culmination of our course and has two parts:
• As you read, jot down notes and impressions that strike you most about your writing; highlight key parts that seem surprising to you now, whether weak or strong. Try to remember what you were feeling as you wrote and begin to identify patterns in your writing process (procrastination, braindumps, frustration, writer’s block, exhilaration, worry, and so on).
• Then, write 750-1000 words (double-spaced) MLA formatted paper reflecting on your writing and your identity as a writer throughout the semester, considering not only your writing itself, but your writing process (pre-writing, thinking, feedback, revision, reflection, and so on).
Step 2: You should comment on your work this semester, especially in your reading and writing. Consider your preparation for class, your process of writing the papers, the peer reviews, and any other work you completed. Most important, make sure you demonstrate that you have thought about your writing over the semester, both your writing itself and the process you used to get there. Consider what you do well, where you could still improve, whether or not you ask for help or perceive writing as a solitary activity, and so on.
Step 3: After you have drafted your reflection for this course, you must connect this summative evaluation of your work to at least two authors we’ve read this course. This means you are required to draw upon or even quote from two of the text’s we’ve read this semester—this requires MLA citation. You may pull from course textbooks, assigned readings, or even our classical rhetoricians. The goal of step 3 is for you to connect YOUR writing choices to writing and rhetorical theory.
