WHAT ARE YOU BEING ASKED TO DO:

As we have discussed in class, narrative is a means through which we come to terms with fundamental elements of our human experience. For this assignment, you will draw on your personal histories and think about a defining moment—a moment where something changed occurred that changed you. This could be a major decision or event. It could be a small or seemingly insignificant or it can be major and seemingly significant. The choice is yours!

As you’ve read, most narratives progress through five stages: equilibrium, disruption, recognition, attempt at repairing, and a return to/a new equilibrium (see “What is Narrative?” PowerPoint PDF in Week 3 folder). Your paper will tell a narrative, personal story that includes all of these elements. So, once you have chosen the moment/experience you want to write about, take some time to reflect on that experience and consider how it connects to your present, your current, new equilibrium, and what message you want to communicate to your reader.

YOU HAVE TWO MAJOR CONSIDERATIONS WHILE WRITING THIS COHESIVE NARRATIVE-STYLE ESSAY.

(1) TELL YOUR NARRATIVE/STORY
Your narrative essay should make your reader be able to envision the moment/s you are describing. Where were you? When was it? What was it like for you? For the people around you? What about life before this moment and after this moment does the reader need to know in order to understand your story? Who is involved? What are they like? What were their reactions compared to yours? What questions did you ask yourself in the moment?

(2) INCLUDE YOUR REFLECTIVE ASPECT
What is like after this experience in the immediate moments that followed but also now? How often do you think of this moment? Have you not really thought about it at all but, provoked by this assignment, realized some important ways it connects to your everyday life? Do you consider this a liminal moment for you? Why?

Remember: It is important that you are showing your reader what happened; not simply telling them, so that they can read your story and visualize it. Use the examples we have read in class to help you model and craft this writing.

Purpose:

Asking good questions is one of the best ways to give you direction in the early stages of doing research, choosing sources, and taking notes for the CP paper in 39C. You can use this worksheet as a 30-minute exercise that helps you formulate analytical arguments about the sources you’re choosing as you begin your research. This worksheet will also help you get started assembling materials for the Reflective Introduction and your final ePortfolio that will be due at the end of the quarter.

Background:

As you work on the wide variety of assignments for 39C, it is a good idea to reflect periodically on your awareness and motivations regarding the function of your research methods, source selection, and note-taking in the context of the rhetorical triangle:

rhetor/writer/speaker/sender/maker

text/medium/genre/artifact/object

audience/reader/listener/receiver

Each time you find a new source, jot down your reasons for using it, the particular features of it that you find useful or fascinating, the relationship between maker/text/audience in the source itself, and the effect you believe your interpretation of the source will have on your readers.

REFLECTIVE QUESTIONS TO ANSWER ABOUT RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

You could consider answering one or two of these questions:

Which databases are ending up to be the most productive, and why?

Which search terms are working, and which aren’t?

How can I refine the nature of my search for sources so I get sources my intended audience would find convincing?

Write your own research-related questions to be answered in your Reflective Intro:

REFLECTIVE QUESTIONS TO ASK ABOUT CHOOSING SOURCES AND ARTIFACTS

Again, answering one or two of these questions can help you get a clearer picture of how you’re shaping your CP:

Why did I choose this source over other, similar sources?

Have I covered an array of points of view in my primary and scholarly sources?

What am I trying to establish in terms of my own credibility when I use this source?

What effect do I intend this source to have on my readers, and why?

How can vivid descriiption of this source help my argument?

Write your own source-related questions to be answered in your Reflective Intro:

REFLECTIVE QUESTIONS TO ASK WHEN YOU TAKE NOTES ON SOURCES

As you prepare to write, think about the features of the material you are analyzing, a hypothesis or argument you could develop, and the audiences you are attempting to reach. Answering one or two of these questions may help you take more effective notes:

What aspect of this primary or secondary source is the most useful for my topic?

How and where is this source appealing to a particular audience?

What are a few possibilities for an argument I could construct using this evidence?

Who is my intended audience, and how could I use this document to reach them?

Write your own note-taking questions to be answered in your Reflective Intro:

Parameters and Expectations
• Length: 750-900 words
• 12-point Times New Roman font
• One inch margins on every side
• MLA style heading and headers/pagination (unless you specify another standard academic format like APA, Chicago, etc.).

For this assignment, you will be analyzing how jobs in your field or discipline are represented in pop culture through various media, such as film, television, advertisements, recruiting brochures, etc. How do different media characterize people in different professions? Do they paint them in positive or negative light? Are there any stereotypes that these portrayals reinforce or, perhaps, work against? How does the way in which these professionals are represented compare to the reality of that line of work?
Invention/Picking a topic:
Step 2. Think about an occupation/vocation that you’re interested in and brainstorm about the how that occupation is typically represented in pop culture, including any stereotypes or associations that come to mind when you think about this kind of work. If the profession you are writing about is computer science, what kind of person comes to mind? A man or woman? What age? How do they dress? How do they talk? What are their strengths? What are their weaknesses? What other characteristics or personality types come to mind?
Step 3. Now that you have a certain generic image of that occupation in mind, try to think about where that image comes from. Where have you learned about this occupation? How has this occupation been represented or depicted in various media? The goal is to identify a specific cultural artifact that captures how this line of work is or has been represented.

Explanation of an Artwork.

I need you to explain a artwork that has a pattern. I will send you the artwork and I can also send you resources and example(s) from students to help you write. It should be a detailed explanation. Be sure to discuss some principles of design and elements of art to help further back up your claims.

Revise the straw man argument to steel man argument.

Steel-Manning – PLEASE COMPLETE ALL TEN ITEMS
A strawman argument is an approach that oversimplifies or mis-characterizes the opponent’s position, thus making it easier to attack. Steel-manning is an approach that places the opponent’s position is best possible light, thus making the eventual argument more compelling because now the best aspects of the position have been weakened. The following statements are straw-man arguments. Revise them as them as steel-man arguments.

I’m so tired of hearing you talk about animal welfare! Why not just give them the right to vote?

Framing questions to consider:
How does Blackwood depict nature? What about its uncanny descriptions of the natural world allow us to see nature as alive in a new way?
In what ways does the story express how the main characters confront their own spiritual, cultural, and philosophical prejudices in nature?
If nature is sentient, how may this change our attitude and understanding of the natural world?
