Just out of curiosity, I’d like to pose a general question to everyone. What do you find most challenging about this class? Is it the constant struggle of racking up points to somehow make it to the top of mountain? Perhaps you struggle and do not enjoy evaluating yourself, and the evolution essay has been giving trouble? Of course there is the project, which just seems to be everything in life right now? Planning the idea, executing your thoughts, and putting it all together in a presentable manner can certainly be daunting. And how can we forget the portfolio – the be-all end-all of our Sweetland Minor in Writing experience. I have found difficulties in all of these arenas. If I were to put them in order though, beginning with what I find most challenging, I would say portfolio, project, evolution essay, points. I am generally reliable when it comes to be organized and task driven, so point watermarks have not really presented any issues for me. The evolution essay was a bit tough getting started, but the same can be said for any writing assignment. Once I got going, my thoughts came naturally to me. The project has definitely been tough because there are so many components to manage. I’ve tried to step outside of my own shoes to view it from other people’s perspective in order to make it as relatable as possible while still being composed the way I want it to be. This has surely been challenging. For me though, the portfolio is definitely Goliath. I enjoy absolutely nothing when it comes to designing websites, integrating media, and all of that other miserable stuff that some people somehow find entertaining. I’m curious to hear how other people view these things.
