Assignment: Reflection Rough Draft

This week you will begin a draft that will eventually become your final project in Week 6. This draft asks you to reflect on your weekly journal entries, your self-assessment scores, insights you’ve gained about what you need to be successful as a learner as you move through your program  and by reviewing everything you have done and learned so far in this course to inform your written narrative.

To prepare for the Assignment:

· The Writing Center ‘Drafting a Narrative’ resource you identified in Week 3. 

· The automated writing feedback tool Grammarly you identified in Week 3. 

· Your journal entries and previous assignments. 

· Your Self-Assessment results from Week 1. 

· Your discussion posts.

· The weekly resources discussing what it means to be human in a technological world.

By Day 7

Submit a 2- to 3-page rough draft essay that includes responses to all three sections listed below plus an introduction. 

Assignment Instructions:

During Week 6, you’ll be guided through a revisions and proofreading process that will help you further develop and improve your rough draft by adding more thoughts, incorporating any feedback received, and ensuring you’ve followed Academic Writing Expectations. Your final draft will be due at the end of Week 6. 

The required elements for both weeks are the same, but the expectations are slightly different. The grading rubrics for Weeks 4 and 6 demonstrate this. For example, this week’s rough draft represents a first attempt at putting your thoughts down on paper and only covers four weeks. By Week 6, your final paper should be longer, include obvious improvements to the rough draft, and include aspects from the entire class term. 

Your Week 4 paper should include three sections and an introduction.  Support your ideas with specific examples and resources whenever possible. 

Before you begin this assignment, open a blank document where you can type your draft and take advantage of spell check and editing functions. Just make sure to save often in case of a technical difficulties.Include the following parts:

Section 1: Introduction (click to expand/reduce)

Section 2: Main Body (click to expand/reduce)

Part 2: I will reach my goals by… (click to expand/reduce)

Part 3: I will join the Walden community by… (click to expand/reduce)

Read the whole document through and make any corrections you think necessary. Move text around, run a thorough spell check and consider taking advantage of Grammarly on the Walden Writing Center site before pasting the text into your journal. 

Note: All students have access to Word through their Walden email account.   

Note 2: Keep the Word document somewhere you can find it. This will make life easier in Week 6 when you do your final revision.

By Day 7

Submit a 2- to 3-page rough draft essay of your Reflection Assignment using the guidelines above. Your rough draft should demonstrate proper grammar and sentence structure, and address the component parts described above. Make sure to support your ideas with specific evidence and class examples.
