PROJECT 4: REFLECTIVE ESSAY

How have you developed as a writer and researcher during WRIT 1633? For this project, you will create a portfolio in which you explore this question. To do this well, youll need to select several examples of your writing, and youll need to write an essay in which you analyze and interpret the pieces youve chosen. what should I include in the portfolio? the assignment

Your final portfolio should consist of four pieces of writing. Please include three papers you have already written that illustrate the writing and research skills you developed in the course. One of which may come from a DU course other than WRIT 1133 (for example, from WRIT 1122 or from any other course); you may use in-class writing or homework assignments in addition to official papers. The fourth piece is a reflective essay that describes and analyses those papers. To be most effective, the reflection will probably need to be about three to four pages long. Choose three papers. Your reflective essay should: Explain the papers youve selected, describing the assignment for the work. Remember that most of your readers will be unfamiliar with your class. Reflect on what you have learned through writing these assignments. Please refer to or quote specific elements from your papers to illustrate your observations. You might also talk about your drafting. Try to connect your work to the concepts and strategies that your class emphasized. how should I write the reflective essay?
