I knew a lot about media and how they affected social movements but not to as great of an extent. For one when I sourced something it flowed into the paragraph instead of being its own thing and I didn’t have to do a reflection at the end. I learned to write my explanations better and I learned that I’m good at finding specific pieces of evidence to support my claim. To analyze something rhetorically I learned that if you miss one piece of it the whole thing falls apart. The problem that I ran into was the intro and conclusion, I didn’t know how to start both of them out. I felt that I ended up with something that was harder to work on than I originally thought it would be.
ENG 1101 is about you getting more comfortable with your own process. You’ll look at tools and ideas about how language is used to communicate and persuade and even exclude. And you’ll be introduced to concepts like transfer, genre, and metacognition.
