Part 3: Reader Evaluation
Kelly provided some excellent feedback: she suggested to place my 3 viewpoints at the end of my introduction to allow the reader to know what is to come in the paper. She also suggested that in my paragraphs that I make sure to state the stakes, values and frame the issues as they are necessary to address in this paper. Also she gave me some great advice to make sure my transitions are clearer to make sure that the reader can follow my work and the new topic points in my essay. Finally she reminded me that the works cite belongs on its own page at the end of the paper. Even though she didn’t answer all my questions the provided me with guidance on some of the questions and great feedback on my work. Writers Memo
Part 1: Production
For my essay I took a long time to figure out my driving question and put it into words as a variety of questions came to my head when we were given this assignment. After that I took the weekend to dwell on my question as well as write out my interview questions and begin to think of candidate s to interview. After pondering for a long time as to who I should interview I decided to interview both my mother along with my aunt as they worked very hard to get to where they are today. After interviewing I came up with the three topics I want my essay to embody. This essay was surprisingly difficult for me to write as all the other research writing I have done has been very different from this type of writing. I hope this essay not only embodies my research survey question but also my overall question of uncertainty.
Part 2: Intellectual Actions
The most challenging part of this essay was thinking of a topic to write about as there are a multitude of interesting topic s I would like to research. I once again am thankful for the amount of time we are given to perfect our research question as this is the basis of our work. This being said most difficult task for me was coming up with a topic that not only represent my dwelling question but making sure that it is also part of my research question. After finding a question that I didn’t know the “answers” to I found this paper to be very interesting and fun to research. Part 3: Writing skills
The most challenging part of writing this essay was the structure the essay was supposed to follow. After referring to the model multiple times I believe I finally have the correct formatting for the essay. As a reread through my essay I continue to question whether or not the formatting is correct as it seems strange to me. As I proceeded through my essay I had an interesting time writing it, I continually question if I am writing this correctly and it was frustrating to write and not have as much freedom to work with Part 4: Knowledge
The most surprising thing I learned in writing this essay was that what socioeconomic class you are born into has a direct relationship to what your future entails and how hard you have to work. Also in writing this I learned that there are multiple instances were education can help to differentiate you in the future. Finally, the most challenging thing for me to accept is the fact that not everyone can achieve the American dream.
