Using all the work we have done through the course of this module, WD1 represents our first writing of a draft of our essay about how technology is shaping and/or re-defining a particular field of interest.
For this draft you should aim to have an introduction that sets both the social and intellectual context of your focused topic and that ends with a ‘working’ central claim; as well as at least two analysis paragraphs, that each begin with distinct subclaims. Be sure to utilize any and all of our worksheets and resources in our “Course Documents” module to help clarify these structures, but also know that the goal of any draft is to better understand these structures by writing with and through them. Note that this WD1 draft is due by 11:59pm on Tuesday 2/12.
This workshop draft must be a 600 (min.) – 900 (max.) words in length, not including the Works Cited (if included).
At the top of this workshop draft (just below the header, but above your title), include three workshop notes for the workshop process (see details below).
Be sure to review the Paper Format Guidelines so that you understand how to properly format your essay.
Central Claim and Subclaims should be based on a how specific technology or technologies is shaping or re-defining a particular field of interest.
Each Subclaim should have an element about the technology or technologies and a distinct analytical point that strives to analyze the different effects technology is having on that field of interest.
Include a brief quote (no more than two sentences) from at least one outside source and be sure to utilize a MLA in-text citation and Works Cited for that source (or any sources used).
As is implied by the name of this draft, it’s primary purpose is to engage in workshop with our peers. We will be working in small groups of 3-4 peers to help each other workshop the structures and ideas of our essays. As with the drafting itself, the workshop process is not one where we find the “right answers” for our papers; rather, it’s an opportunity for us to practice “critical reading” of writing so that we can all continue to better understand these structures of introductions, central claim, subclaims, analysis, etc.
In that spirit, after you have drafted your WD1, at the top of your essay, just below the header and before the title (example below), please type your responses to these questions as a way to allow us provide better feedback and conversation in the workshop of your draft. While you should try to use the concepts of subclaims and central claim (etc.) as they apply, do respond here in a way that’s most comfortable for you:
Challenges/Struggles: What aspect(s) of writing this draft was the most challenging? Please be specific with certain aspects of the essay (i.e. central claim, subclaims, analysis, introduction, conclusion) and/or refer to specific paragraphs that were impacted by this challenge. Describe what you struggled with briefly?
Effective: What aspect(s) of this draft do you feel are working well or off to a decent start? Again, be specific: central claim, subclaims, development, organization, or analysis and/or refer to specific paragraphs.
Revision: What’s your plan for revision of this draft? Briefly explain what are you going to focus in upon and what will you do to revise.
