Research Writing & SLOs Reflection Chart


As I mentioned earlier in the term, the key concepts you worked with in your homework response two would be revisited throughout the course
of the term. The chart below will help you revisit, revise, and begin making connections between these concepts and writing that you are
actually doing in our class. Fill out each of the chart items below; in some instances, you can do a straight copy and paste from previous
work.

Not necessarily used to persuade or create


bias towards a certain audience. But to
strategically compose a text to understand
the impact of certain preferences of the
author on his/her reader/audience.

There are two sets of norms that Harry has to


follow; they are rules that Harry has to follow at
home and those at school (Hogwarts School of
Witchcraft and Wizardry).

Formal rules that are composed to help


guide the reader as he/she is reading the
specific text. This guide may include
certain definition or rules; it may also
contain certain guidelines that the reader
must follow in order to fully understand
the authors purpose.

are equivalent to the timing in the movie; i.e 0:006:00 means that I have seen the first six minutes of

both likes and dislikes about their paper

Critical Reading

The understanding of
why the author writes
what and why they
write the way they do.

The ability to decrypt information. In


order to do so, one would have to be able
to criticize and improve upon evidence,
but not become totally presumptuous and
belittling.

Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)


Rhetorical Knowledge
Rhetorical knowledge is the ability to identify and apply strategies across a range of texts and writing situations. Using their own
writing processes and approaches, writers compose with intention, understanding how genre, audience, purpose, and context
impact writing choices.
Critical Reading
Reading critically is the ability to analyze, synthesize, interpret, and evaluate ideas, information and texts. When writers think
critically about the materials they use, they separate assertion from evidence, evaluate sources and evidence, recognize and
assess underlying assumptions, read across texts for connections and patterns, and identify and evaluate chains of reasoning.
These practices are foundational for advanced academic writing.
Composing Processes
Writers use multiple strategies, or composing processes, to conceptualize, develop, and finalize projects. Composing processes
are seldom linear: a writer may research a topic before drafting then conduct additional research while revising or after consulting
a colleague. Composing processes are also flexible: successful writers can adapt their composing processes to different contexts
and occasions.

Knowledge of Conventions
Conventions are the formal rules and informal guidelines that define genres, and in so doing, shape readers and writers
expectations of correctness or appropriateness. Most obviously, conventions govern such things as mechanics, usage, spelling,
and citation practices. But they also influence content, style, organization, graphics, and document design.
Critical Reflection
Critical reflection is a writers ability to articulate what s/he is thinking and why. For example, to explain the choices made in a
composition, to contextualize a composition, to address revisions made in response to reader feedback etc.
