I’m studying and need help with a Writing question to help me learn.
For your first “informal writing” assignment, you’ll be responding to the prompt below in approximately 250 words (1 page, double-spaced with 1-inch margins). Your document will be formatted with your name, the class number (WR 323), the assignment (Informal Writing #1), and the date of composition at the top of the page. This document should follow conventions of standard written English to best of your ability, as well as utilize the feature of spell check that each word processing program provides.
Informal writing assignments should be submitted in .docx format, and are due on Wednesdays by 11:59 p.m. PST. Late submission will result in a reduction of possible grade.
Prompt: Tell me about your previous writing instruction. What prior classes impacted your writing skills and how? How confident are you as a writer? What style guide are you most familiar with (MLA or APA are most common)? How do you draft assignments (I drink a lot of coffee and assemble my main points as an outline before fleshing out the body of the text)? How do you revise your work (what elements do you pay particular attention to, or have you struggled with in the past)? Where do you write (at a desk, in the park, on breaks at work)? What do you think the biggest challenge will be for you this term? Are you excited to develop critical essays that blend nonfiction narrative experience with current issues and discussions?
