By comparing my work in Inquiry 1 and first discussion posts compared to my most recent works, the growth of my writing is obvious and I have seen a huge development in myself as a writer. Writing isn't simply an assignment where I write out an introuduction, body and closing paragraph, rather, this course taught me how to take impactful moments to create a narrative story, rhetorically analyzing the aspects of a speech and how the audience is influenced, as well as using textual evidence to support an idea and language of a text. Every aspect of a speech is intentional and this course helped open my eyes to the verbal and visual aspects that influence the rhetor's purpose. Additionally, I learned how to annotate a bibliography, incorporate specific quotes and paraphrases to showcase integrity, how to recognize three sides of an issue and learn the opinions of each argument. Lastly, I learned how to take a public argument and turn it into a website. With technology taking over society, learning how to use different types of technology, including Adobe Spark, will have a lasting impact on my writing and how to translate it to something visually interesting. This course challenged my writing and understanding of arguments on a critical level, forever changing the way I discuss diverse topics, audiences and reasons.
