Content: Write an essay of three to four pages to look back on your progress in writing this quarter and explain why you have succeeded in EWRT1A. This goes in the front of your portfolio, as an introduction to your work for the teachers evaluating the portfolio.
Review all the work you’ve done for the class. Consider why you chose the essays in your portfolio and how they show your readiness for EWRT1B or 2. Give specific examples from these essays to show your improvements.
Your overall purpose is to demonstrate how your writing, reading, thinking and studenthood have changed as a result of what you have learned in this class. You must provide specific evidence for your claims, meaning quotes from your essays or detailed descriptions of specific events or processes.
Discuss what you have learned as a writer in EWRT 1A. This might include practice in organization, analysis, development, vivid examples, construction of better sentences, proofreading, writing process, and so on. (This is 2-3 paragraphs after your introduction.)
Writing is learning. To demonstrate how this worked in your case, choose two topics from your writing, and explain how your understanding of these issues changed as a result of reading and writing about them. What did you understand or believe about these two issues before EWRT 1A, and how do you see those issues now? How does that impact your personal, career or academic life? Give an example for each topic. (This is at least two substantial paragraphs)
What still needs improvement? Write about what you’d still like to work on with your writing. Remember that all of us are still trying to be better writers, so what are you going to focus on in EWRT 2, 1B and beyond? (This is your conclusion.)
