Consider the reading and writing assignments you have completed so far this year, then address the following questions in your notebook and be willing to share your thoughts both with your table group and the whole class.
1. When given an analysis task, like the essays on Didion, King, Orwell, and Jefferson, what do you feel comfortable doing and what aspects do you feel challenged by and need to continue to work on?
2. When given an argument task, like the Ecclesiastes and Horace prompts, or the Room for Debate project, what do you feel confident in doing and what still challenges you?
3. Considering the answers to Questions 1-2, how has your reading and writing ability changed throughout this first quarter? What are some goals on which you can work to further improve reading rhetorically and writing strong analysis and argument?
