In the image above is the advertisement that I used to write my Unit 3 essay, During the assignment we attempted to achieve the the outcome of "analyzing the context and purpose of a writing problem" . What happened in this activity was everyone chose an advertisement and we had to review the ad and determine what was the purpose of the ad and review and determine if it was successful. This happened to get us students to learn how to fine the purpose in advertisements and thing we see everyday. As I just said in the future this activity with analyzing the context and purpose will help students be able to determine the purpose of something their viewing because we know how to analyze it .
develop ideas and find reliable resources for their writing
Now this image was not mine but I used/ use the same search engine. In Unit 4 we were supposed to come up with a question that we , the students thought would be a good research question . We were then supposed to research our question and try and find different sources that would support our question we also had to answer many questions for example if the source was reliable or if it would help and support our question for a research paper also we had to cite the source and answer many other questions. I believe this happened to prepare us students to write research papers and and help us determine whats going to help and whats not going to help in a research paper. What can be learned from this outcome is ho to find reliable sources and how to determine if a source is reliable or not.
state and support assertions
To develop the "state and support assertions" outcome we wrote an essay for Unit one. What happen in this unit is we students had to decide what mattered to us and we had to explain why it mattered to us .This happened to help us students state something and use detail to back up what we are saying. What can be learned from this out is how to give our opinion and and use facts or experience to support it.
assess sources and information
In the photo above I am working on unit four . In unit four we also developed the "assess sources and information" . What happened in this unit that I've previously discussed we created a question and research it . Also like I said we had to determine if the source we found was useful or not so basically we were learning to to assess sources and information. Again what was learned and can be used in the future is how to evaluate something and determine the quality of it
organize their ideas effectively
Throughout the entire class for writing we've been encouraged to create an outline of our essays it helps you to get all of your thoughts down and organized .Like I stated we outline to organize our paper and thoughts. From making outlines it helps us in the future with other courses were we have to write essays .
