Multi-Modal Self-Assessment

Multi-Modality: Include at least THREE unique modes of representation (photos, objects, maps, original art, video, cartoons, quotes, memes, gifs) in your essay that allow you to discuss your relationship to writing in a unique way (the only criterion here is that each image accomplishes a different goal for you).

How would you characterize your current relationship to writing? Who or what event, experience, person, etc caused or contributed to your sense of yourself as a writer? Feel free to point out negatives and/or positives, but always be specific. What practices and habits of researching, arguing, writing, thinking, communicating and organizing can you articulate about yourself? (Be specific. E.g., “My ‘habits’ of researching involve Google and only Google…that is to say, I approach research with no strategy whatsoever.) Consider, for example, what you took away from previous writing class (or an equivalent freshman composition course) that you feel will help you most in this course and why.

Where do you consider that you need the most improvement? Use examples from past writing and communication projects. How would you like to evolve as a writer and researcher? (This course is about writing reserch paper) What goals have you set for yourself in this class? What have you heard about this course and what do you expect to find as a result? Do you have any anxieties about this course so far? (I know the horror stories, so feel free to say what you will). Do you feel adequately prepared for this course? What about your past or current experiences contributes to this feeling?
