- Preparing your final portfolio. There are three components:
- An introduction that contextualizes the artifacts and accounts for any outcomes not directly seen in the artifacts. Address the course learning objectives found on the syllabus and at the end of this document. Explain what you have learned regarding each objective that can’t be seen in the writing, but that you understood and applied in the process (2-4 pages).
- Two major projects from different genres (see instructions):
- An appendix with samples of writing processes related to the two writing projects.
1. Inside work: Write a brief description of the four academic disciplines.
These are academic disciplines that focus on understanding the aspects of the development of human thoughts and culture. They involve ancient and modern languages, literature, philosophy, history, archaeology, anthropology, human geography, law, religion, and art.
b) Social sciences
This refers to a group of academic disciplines such as anthropology, psychology, political science, sociology, and economics that focus on studying how people behave while in society. In other words, it is any discipline in science that deals with human behaviors in their social and cultural aspects.
c) Natural sciences
These disciplines are the base for studying applied science subjects and specialize in understanding the universe and the rules of nature. The most common natural sciences are biochemistry and geophysics.
d) Applied fields
This refers to academic disciplines that are studied through practical learning. They may be applied sciences where learners engage in physics, biology, chemistry practices, applied linguistics where English education practices, and others.
2. Inside work: Understanding the goals of writing your course
a) What surprised you about the goals or objectives for your writing course?
I was surprised because I performed better and spent more time without getting bored in disciplines that I followed my goals and objectives effectively
b) What is similar to or different from the writing course you have taken before?
Previously, I have been setting goals and objectives and following them without realizing many outcomes, but things are different since I can see improvement in understanding and interests.
c) What is similar to or different from the expectations you had for this course?
This course has been different since understanding has improved and interest in specific disciplines.
d) How do the outcomes for the course align with your goals for writing and for college?
The outcomes align with my goals because I have improved my ability to understand, think critically, and improve day after another.
e) What does the list of goals for your course tell you about what is valued at your institution?
The institution is supposed to build students to be better day after day so that they can stand on their own in the future.
3. Insider’s view: undergraduate students on academic writing
It is different since, in another context like high school, writing is valued in English subject only while other subjects don’t focus on the language used, but at the college level, writing skills matter in all subjects.
