Overview: This journal activity is private between you and the instructor.
This week, you learned about active reading and analysis by looking more closely at a selected reading. In doing so, you uncovered ideas in the “Turning Off, Dining In” article that may have been difficult to identify during your literal reading of the text.
To prepare for this assignment, please re-read your selected article and your notes from Module 1. Then, using a Word Document, answer the following questions:
- Discuss the context of your selected article, the author’s purpose, and the style and tone. What have you learned from this early analysis?
- How will a closer analysis of the author’s claim and the structure of the writing help you to learn more about your selected reading?
- Now that you have discussed the author’s purpose for writing the selected reading, do you think the author’s writing is effective in achieving their purpose? What led you to this conclusion?
In total, the reflection should be three fully developed paragraphs (5-8 sentences each) in length (consider one paragraph per question). As you work on the journal, remember to refer to the rubric below to make sure you’re fulfilling the requirements for this assignment.
Guidelines for Submission: Save your work in a Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins.. Then, check your writing for errors. Once you have proofread your document, submit it via the Module 2, 2-5 Journal: Importance of Analysis Assignment link in Brightspace.
