Writing Exercise 1 – Motivation
Last week, you read about contexts that motivate learning, through the experiences of Sara, Chris, Fred, and Jaime. Consider these students’ experiences as you complete this week’s written assignment. Write a paragraph, explaining what motivates you to learn (using the experiences of Sara, Chris, Fred, and Jaime as examples). Then, write a second paragraph that focuses on the particular context that you believe motivates your learning (i.e., Practical, Personal, Experiential, or Idealistic). This assignment must be written in Times New Roman 12-pt. font and double spaced, and submitted as a Microsoft Word document, using the Assignment Submission button (found within this week’s Assignment item in the left navigation panel). Do not paste the assignment into the Discussion Board.
This assignment will be evaluated on the following criteria: * Topic: Did your response address the topic described in the assignment instructions? * Paragraph construction: Was the response written in cohesive, logical paragraphs? * Support: Did each paragraph offer enough support for its topic sentence? * Formatting: Was the response submitted in MS.
