Reflective Statement- Christianity19

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.

Throughout this writing class, my writing has been pushed to be better improved through the process. With the professor giving detailed feedback, help make it clear on how to develop my thesis throughout the paper. Taking the feedback that was help shape how in approach when I came to editing my writing. Looking at the abundances of sources that I had collected throughout the process of my research. This core value is demonstrated in my White Paper—Christianity19, due to the amount of edits and how to constantly change throughout the semester. The white paper was the hub of where all my essays came from, that was where I got my sources to give my essays the juice it had. 

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. 

When I took this class last semester, I chose to shy away from my work because I was intimidated by it. I never spoke with anyone about how lost I felt with the material until it was too late. This semester, I communicated with Professor Hodges about my writing, and fully embraced the practice of writing instead of thinking. I wrote my Purposeful Summaries- Christianity19 I read them, which allowed me to reassess my thought process as I gathered more information. The Professor’s gave me feedback on my work as I went along. My hypothesis evolved from an outlandish claim to prove the Skin diseases are caused by wrestling.

As I explored the reasons behind wrestling causes skin diseases and infections, I discovered that wrestlers who didn’t take care of their skin will have a higher chance of getting skin diseases. I read critically and discovered the main arguing points for both sides of the wrestling causes wrestlers to have skin diseases and infections. In my Definition Rewrite- Christianity19, I used sources from articles that showed that wrestling has a high risk of allowing wrestlers to get skin diseases or infections. One of my causal sources included a discussion that kids who take care of their body they will radically reduce their ability to get skin diseases from wrestling.

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.

My original thesis was based that wrestling has a high risk of wrestlers to get skin diseases or infections because close contact, but after analyzing my audience, I realized that they would quickly refute the idea that skin diseases are caused by wrestling without checking your skin before a wrestling match. My target audience is people who wrestle or people who are interested in the sport of wrestling. In my Causal Rewrite – Christianity19, I described that wrestlers that would check their skin will have a lower chance of getting skin diseases, but without the kids checking their skin for skins of skin diseases will reduce the risk of skin diseases. I introduced the idea of kids that wrestle and don’t check their own skin are hurting themselves by and other wrestlers because they might spread skin diseases. My rhetoric includes a thesis on how so many studies and trials have proved that skin diseases are a high risk for wrestlers.

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.

There were a few times throughout my research where I used the Professor’s idea to look at the citation of one article to find more sources, and I evaluated all of my sources by checking to see if they were peer-reviewed. The reason I centered my research paper around getting skin diseases from wrestling and how it has affected my personal life. Before writing my Reflective Statement- Christianity19 I thought about how common all wrestlers are because they want to take care of their body and don’t want to catch any infections. In my Reflective statement, I used the five core writing values to show you I incorporated in my writing.

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. 

My research I haven’t changed my view on wrestling skin diseases that wrestling causes skin disease. By including an Bibliography-Christianity19, I’m showing how I used my wrestling . In my Bibliography, I acknowledge that the solution to the kids who got skin diseases from wrestling. I was honest with my audience and used logic to encourage them to form their own opinion while reading my essays. In the introduction to my Research Position Paper-Christianity19, I talked about how As many people may know that this year wrestling has been very different when it comes to COVID-19 because their has been outbreaks of COVID-19 when wrestling this season. I began my essay with this to get my audience thinking.
