ENG 1101 Project #1 Process

English 1101 Project #1 Process

In this project I knew what I wanted to include by reading the project description. This project is all about introducing ourselves so I included what I wanted people to know about me, both personally and professionally. I then reread what I wrote and refine it by changing some words, adding new thoughts and take away what is not important. I determine what to eliminate by what I saw as repetitive and what really does not represent me as much. I figured out how to organized my project by the order in which the project task asked, first I introduced myself then I talked about the avatar I chose to represent me, then how others may interpret my avatar in the wrong way, and finally how my profile overall represents me. As my classmate read my work and give me feedback, it helped to improve my work. By reading my class mates work and give them feedback, it helped to me to also improve my work because as I was reading there work, I realized what was missing in my work. I spent approximately 15 minutes brainstorming, 15 minutes, outlining, 40 minutes drafting, 15 minutes revising, 15 minutes polishing. A total of 1 hour and 40 minutes.

ENG 1101 Project #1 Process

You’re in the final stages of your revision of Project #1–how did you get here? Write a post (Category ENG 1101 Project #1, Tag Phase 3: Develop, plus any tags you want) in which you reflect on your process. You will want to address some or all of the following:

  • how did you know what you wanted to include?
  • how did you refine what you included?
  • how did you determine what to eliminate?
  • how did you figure out the project’s organization?
  • what did your classmate’s feedback do for your work process?
  • what did reading your classmate’s project and giving feedback do for your work process?
  • how much time did you spend brainstorming? outlining? drafting? revising? polishing?

In class on Monday, you will write a cover letter for your project based on different reflective questions. Then we’ll gather what we learned for Project #1 and bring it to Project #2!

If you have any questions about Project #1 as you’re finishing it, feel free to reach out to me via email or to reply to this post so anyone in class can respond to you or see my response.
