Core Value 1. My work demonstrates that I used a variety of social and interactive practices that involve recursive stages of exploration, discovery, conceptualization, and development. ttps://rucomp2.com/2019/03/24/casual-argument-doorknob9/
This value is crucial to being a successful writer and shows development in one’s work throughout the course of a piece of writing. I implemented this into my paper about Jared Goff being the worst NFC West quarterback to compete in a Super Bowl, however more specifically that he failed to compete on the biggest stage with a team assembled and given to him. Exploration is also demonstrated in this piece because points are brought up that are other factors besides Jared Goff’s play, for example the assets he was given on offense and still failed to find those players during his big game in Super Bowl 53. This core value is showed throughout my casual argument piece in all the proper ways.
Core Value 2. My work demonstrates that I read critically, and that I placed texts into conversation with one another to create meaning by synthesizing ideas from various discourse communities. https://rucomp2.com/2019/05/01/rebuttal-rewrite-doorknob9/
Reading and understanding text is one thing, but being able to apply it into your own words is what really matters when writing a piece. In this particular piece, I gathered opinions from various sources regarding the status and play of Jared Goff and multiple other players that were, and are, in his position. The sources I used compared players performances in college football to give an outlook on their early football careers and how they fared in their first couple of seasons in the NFL. I used information that I found in the sources and analyzed it in order to demonstrate the meaning of the content. They were relevant to my topic and helped improve the points I needed to make in my piece.
Core Value 3. My work demonstrates that I rhetorically analyzed the purpose, audience, and contexts of my own writing and other texts and visual arguments. https://rucomp2.com/2019/04/15/visual-rewrite-doorknob9/
Being able to clearly explain information in a formal way is a key component in writing, and in my Visual rewrite, I analyze the information I collected from the visual and explained each couple of seconds in detail. Explaining the context of a source is a very important part of a piece because it allows you to show what is going on and what you are trying to translate in to your writing. Each step was different while they were crawling and contained different situations that I analyzed and added to the visual rewrite. Knowing the meaning of what your analyzing also is very important because that is what the source is about. The purpose of my video was the importance of a father to their children and how much of an impact their presence can make.
Core Value 4: My work demonstrates that I have met the expectations of academic writing by locating, evaluating, and incorporating illustrations and evidence to support my own ideas and interpretations. https://rucomp2.com/2019/04/22/research-doorknob9/
Meeting the expectations of academic writing by locating and evaluating evidence to support my own ideas is a critical part of the writing process and is important so we can state where our ideas originated from. In my research paper, the point to be made was how Jared Goff is the worst NFC West quarterback to make it to the Super Bowl, and to prove this I needed to evaluate my sources and evidence to incorporate my ideas and interpretations. I used information from multiple sources, one being talking about how singing Goff to a large contract could hurt his team in the long run because they wouldn’t be able to sign players to other positions. The idea I capitalized on was how without the help he needed he wouldn’t be able to get where he was, being the Super Bowl.
Core Value 5. My work demonstrates that I respect my ethical responsibility to represent complex ideas fairly and to the sources of my information with appropriate citation. https://rucomp2.com/2019/05/01/rebuttal-rewrite-doorknob9/
Creating a proper citation or reference section is very important because you must respect your sources and the writers that allow you to analyze their work you base your ideas off of. In my rebuttal rewrite I used the proper in text citations and reference sheet needed to give credit where it is due. Without these sources I wouldn’t have been able to come up with the ideas I came up with and analyzing their pieces was huge because I was able to use the information I pulled out of the articles in to my own piece, which ultimately improves my paper because I have evidence I can use to support the claim that Jared Goff is the worst NFC West quarterback to make it to a Super Bowl.
