Journal Entry - Paraphrasing. This week, you continue writing your journal entries. This journal is designed to give you practice in academic writing, which is very different from the personal essay writing that you have been practicing. Academic writing entails making a point and supporting that point with information from a reputable source. There are three ways to support a point with information from a source: quoting, paraphrasing, or summarizing. This week, you will practice paraphrasing a source and citing that source in your journal entry. Please be sure to read and review the “Example Journal Entry – Paraphrasing” document, which describes how to integrate quotations.

Please note that the journal assignment should not be confused with a personal journal. This activity requires organization, effective stylistics and grammar, and proper source incorporation. It is not a free-writing or reflective writing exercise.

Both of the personal essays we have read this week, “How to Say Nothing in 500 Words” and “Life Under the Chief Doublespeak Officer,” use narrative and/or descriptive elements (sections 6.3 and 6.4 in the text), and each has a clear purpose. Choose one of the essays assigned this week to write about. In 250 to 500 words:

State the purpose of the essay. Describe one literary element being used in the essay (refer to sections 6.3 and 6.4 in the text). Explain why you think that literary element is used well by the writer. Incorporate a paraphrase from the essay. Cite the essay. Explain how you plan to use the literary element in your personal essay. As you are writing this journal entry, please pay attention to the areas that you struggled with in your “Grammar Assessment” quiz and “Practice Essay” assignment. 
When submitting your journal entry, make sure to: Proofread your work for errors in grammar, mechanics, and style. Format the journal according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Refer to the 
Ashford Writing Center’s Sample APA Title Page for guidelines on formatting a title page in APA style. 
c. Provide an in text citation for the section of the essay you paraphrase. Refer to the Ashford Writing Center’s Comprehensive APA Reference List Models for guidelines on in text citations in APA style. Provide a reference for the essay you paraphrase. Refer to the Ashford Writing Center’s Citation and Reference Guide for guidelines on citing sources in APA style. Perform a word count check to make sure the journal is 250 to 500 words in length. Save the document as a Microsoft Word or compatible .doc or .docx file. Use a naming convention that includes your last name, week number, and the assignment number (e.g., 
smith_w2_a1.doc).

Why, or why not? 

Option 2: Primary and Secondary Sources. Based on your experience writing the journals and working on your personal essay, address the following questions in your post:

What are the key differences between academic writing and personal essay writing? How is writing from sources different from writing about one’s personal experience? What advice would you give to future students so that they may be successful in writing their journals? What advice would you give to future students so that they may be successful in writing their personal 
essays? Reflection posts must be 300 to 400 words in length and posted by Day 3. Please address only one of the options, and clearly title your post with the option you have chosen. You are not required to respond to your peers, but you may do so if you choose. If you have questions about how to participate in discussions, consult “About Discussions” under the Course Home menu.

Editing Checklist. Throughout this course, you have taken numerous quizzes and received feedback from your instructor and classmates. Starting with your Grammar Assessment and reviewing all instructor feedback and quiz results, create a list of your five most frequent errors. Add your list of five errors to the “Editing Checklist” handout (available in the online course). Next, choose two proofreading strategies from section 9.4 of Essentials of College Writing and use those strategies to edit your essay. For your initial post:

Attach a copy of your editing checklist. Describe the two proofreading strategies that you used. Explain which strategy you prefer and why. Explain what the benefits and drawbacks are for each strategy. 

Reflection posts must be 300 to 400 words in length and posted by Day 3. You are not required to respond to your peers, but may do so if you choose. If you have questions about how to participate in discussions, consult “About Discussions” under the Course Home menu. You are not required to support your claims with additional scholarly materials; however, should you decide to use additional sources, make sure you properly cite any references. Refer to the Ashford writing Center’s Citation and Reference Guide for guidelines on citing sources in APA style.

Revision Sample. Review Chapter 9 of Essentials of College Writing. Then, review the “Revision Checklist” (available in the online course), which will guide you through the process of reflecting and revising your personal essay. After revising your personal essay based on the checklist, post at least two pages of your revision and the checklist to the discussion board. Then, add a paragraph where you state the following:

The part of your essay you have decided to revise How you revised it What techniques or methods from the required resources in this course you used to revise your essay 

Respond to at least two of your classmates. Respond to one classmate who used a different revision technique and one who used a similar revision technique. For each response:

a. Compare the resources and techniques you used for revision to those your classmate used. 

b. Make one concrete suggestion about how the revision sample can be further improved. Please do not comment on grammar or stylistics—just content.

Response posts must be 125 to 200 words in length and posted by Day 7. If you have questions about how to participate in discussions, consult “About Discussions” under the Course Home menu. You are not required to support your claims with additional scholarly materials; however, should you decide to use additional resources, make sure you properly cite any references.

Peer Review. As part of the writing process, you are expected to reflect on your work and revise and edit accordingly. It is also useful to establish a community of learners in which you help edit and proofread each other’s papers. This reciprocal process will help you identify areas of strength and weakness in others’ writing as well as reflect on your own work and perhaps discover similar mistakes. For this week, you will be performing a peer review on your Personal Essay – Draft before you submit it to your instructor on Day 7.

For this discussion, please either (a) upload your paper (.doc format) as a new thread with your name and title of paper, or (b) create a new thread in which you copy and paste your essay into the body of your post. The draft you share with your peers needs to be at least two double-spaced pages in length. After posting your draft, you will perform one peer review in which you will complete the “Peer Review Template” (available in the online course) and upload it as .doc file. Please review a paper written by a classmate who has not yet received feedback.

ENG 121 Week 3 Assignment Personal Essay – Draft

ENG 121 Week 3 Assignment Personal Essay – Draft | Homework Help | Scoop.it
OthersHelping's insight:

http://www.seetutorials.com/eng-121-new-course/eng-121-week-3-assignment-personal-essay-draft/

 

Personal Essay – Draft. For this writing assignment, you have two choices. Please select one of the following options for your essay:

Describe a person, place, or object that has special meaning in your life. Describe a particular moment or occurrence in your life that had special meaning to you. 

Use the techniques described in sections 6.3 and 6.4 of Essentials of College Writing and expand upon the prewriting done in the discussion forum for the past three weeks to provide specific details about the person, 

place, object, or event so that readers can visualize the subject and/or feel present in the story. Your description should be specific and appeal to the five senses.

This rough draft needs to be at least 550 words, and it should have a thesis statement that clearly states what you are going to be writing about. For more information about writing thesis statements, visit the Ashford Writing Center and review Chapter 5 of Essentials of College Writing.

The point of a draft is to allow your instructor to get a good sense of your organizational writing skills, examine your use of the strategies of narration or description, and provide you with feedback you can incorporate into the Final Essay that is due in Week Five. 

As you write this draft, please pay attention to the areas that you struggled with in your Grammar Assessment and Practice Essay.

When submitting your draft, make sure to:

Proofread your work for errors in grammar, mechanics, and style. Format the essay according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Perform a word count check to make sure the essay is 350 to 500 words in length. Save the document as a Microsoft Word or compatible .doc or .docx file. Use a naming convention that includes your last name, week number, and the assignment number (e.g., 
smith_w2_a1.doc).
