Pursuing Our True Selves

With the semester coming to a rapid conclusion, I can’t help but appreciate the opportunity I’ve been given. I didn’t expect myself getting accepted into another college, much less a graduate program. Here I am writing my response to one of our readings, but I stopped and thought about the kinds of material I’ve beenContinue reading “Pursuing Our True Selves”

Understanding Sentence Structure

For this week, we are to read Grammar, Grammars, and the Teaching o Grammar by Patrick Hartwell and The Erasure of the Sentence by Robert J. Connors, who both discuss different aspects of sentence structure.

Art of Critiquing

From the start it was clear that both assigned readings – Ranking, Evaluating, and Liking: Sorting Out Three Forms of Judgement and Writing Comments on Student’s Papers – were about beneficial and helpful methods one could consider when evaluating one’s work. It’s an interesting subject to think about because it is easy to judge aContinue reading “Art of Critiquing”


Having finished reading The Problem of Othering: Towards Inclusiveness and Belonging and Rhetoric and Composition, I’m left with several ideas and conclusions that might have my thoughts race around my mind all night. I can’t necessarily decide on what sort of connections both these articles have in relation together, but I can respond to eachContinue reading “ANALYSIS: OTHERING AND RHETORIC”
