Massachusetts Ballot Question 3
A11 – Analytical Reflection on Genre Awareness
For this assignment you will compose an analytical reflection that presents your thinking about the last three assignments that you wrote. Recount and analyze the choices you made in those assignments and explain how your awareness of genre and rhetorical situation, or lack of awareness at times, affected your choices and the effectiveness of your writing.
Therefore, your essay should do the following:
Explain how awareness of genre affected your writing choices in the assignments you generated in response to a ballot question.
Explain the extent to which you considered the rhetorical situation as you wrote and why it mattered.
Provide evidence by quoting from own assignments in order to show the audience the specific choices you made.
Evaluate the effectiveness of your writing in those assignments.
Based on your experience of writing in specific genres, explain how critical you think genre awareness is to writing effectively in a particular situation.
This assignment requires that you give attention to using evidence by following academic conventions, organizing with paragraphing, setting context, and using specific examples and specific language to explain your thinking.
