Midterm Reflection

With completing all of the assignments so far, I have learned a great deal about the subjects of the assignments I have done. The readings about the homeless informed me about their lifestyle. I also enjoyed the articles about gender because I did not realize there was even an issue there. My writing process and research are definitely different in this class from past classes. In the past, I have not really gone to a site to take notes and do the research. Instead, I have gotten my information from sources like articles or books. My writing process is different really only because of the type of writing we are doing in this class. We are doing more summaries and analysis than writing about past events or making arguments. Primary research is more interesting to me than secondary research because I get to go out and find the information myself. I have learned from this class that the better the research is, the better the writing can be. The assignments that I have done so far will help me do a better job on future assignments because I feel like I have a better idea of what is expected.  This is the first time I am posting my work like this, and i’m not quite sure if I like it. The posts that I have created have been written with the intent of my peers and professors being the audience. The information given in my posts could help inform the reader more about the topic of the post. Also, the integration of multimodality has allowed me to be a little more...

Mid-Term Reflection

At the beginning of this semester I wasn’t sure if I wanted to stay in this class. This class sounded too difficult and also too different from a traditional english class. But the more I started to understand the course and open my mind up to new things,this class wasn’t as bad as I previous thought. The academic writing process we are working through in this is very similar to the past research I have done. It’s similar because in the past I collected data and then use that data to form an thesis to begin writing a paper. But it’s also quite different because I never collected data from environments (outside places) before. I never quite understood what primary and secondary research was until I came into this class. I learned that the difference between primary and secondary research is that primary is research you go out and collect on your own and secondary is research that someone else collected and you use it.  I plan to apply the things i learned to all other upcoming projects by primary research more than secondary research that I find. I think my strengths as a writer are that I can compose a paper that everyone can comprehend and also I can pull out the main concepts or ideas that other authors have in their writings. But I want to work on using more descriptive words in my summaries and build in environment projects and writing a scholarly paper. Points are the way you earn your grade in this class. There are varies ways to receive pints even extra points. Besides...

A central area

This area is a central area where there is a break between two floors. There is a café located there where people can take a break and sit. The blue sign displays information for visitors to acknowledge a location. The grey stairs give a neutral feeling for people that compliments the area. This area depicts IKEA as a large and filled...

Everywhere a person turns there is a diverse display of an area of home decor. In this video, I exited a kids sections into an area that demonstrates different designs of the inside of a closet. Each design is unique and is presented differently. The video also presents the crowd and enthusiasm of...
