CWP R1A Midterm Assignment: Documenting the Writing Process
For your midterm assignment, you will be creating a page on your Weebly account to collect together and discuss various materials related to writing the "Theme Analysis" paper. The purpose of your page will be to explain your writing process.
I made this site to help visually represent what the project might look like.
Below is a sample diagram that shows an example of how you might structure the assignment. You can insert images of handwritten documents like outlines, free writes, rough drafts, peer editing response sheets, etc. onto your page by dragging and dropping the "Images" element onto the page from the left hand menu while working in the "Build" tab, and then uploading pictures taken with a camera or cell phone (note: just ask me if you need me to take pictures and send them to you). You can also upload screenshots this way.
You can begin to build your discussion of the writing process around any "early stage" materials that have proved influential for you while writing your essay and explaining how or why this is the case. This can include discussion both of the ideas of the essay (if for example a particular free write or peer response comment helped you come to a better understanding of your argument or a paragraph topic) as well as the structure and sequencing of the parts of the essay. Because this is a midterm assignment, it would make sense to discuss any relevant strategies related to the writing process that you learned in class and employed in writing your essay and/or the authors and texts that these ideas evolved from. Given the nature of the assignment, and the potential for uploading images of your essay, it is even better if you can show where in your work these practices are most visible and explain why this is the case in a discussion.
It's worth noting that if you want to upload drafts, outlines, notes or anything else you've created on a computer, you can do that as well by dragging the "Document" element into your page and uploading the file. Here is a similar diagram to the one presented above that was created on the computer and uploaded as a document:
