1. Using Rhetoric:

I believe I have used rhetoric throughout most of my papers. Mainly when we first started introducing our topics. I used a lot of pathos when I first began talking about my dads hernia, our first week of class is when my dad was rushed into the hospital so I also believe my topic was in a timely matter. I also used rhetoric throughout my whole research paper. I believe that I had a lot of ethos, pathos, and logos throughout the whole paper.

2. Research Process:

My research process had come a long way sense the beginning of the semester. I learned how to fine credible sources, and how to find credible sources through not so credible websites. I have also changed my style. I’ve learned how to write a long paper, I didn’t think I would be able to do it. I also created a different work cited than I previously had in high school.

3. Documentation Systems

The purpose of documentation systems is so the reader and audience is not confused and can follow the paper. It will make it easier for them. If they want to learn more information, they can easily find our main citation.

4. Benefits/Challenges

I found that a benefit with working with digital technologies is that it will attract younger generations more. Younger generations are consumed by technology these days.

One challenge was trying to be creative enough to attract an audience. You have to think about what others would like to see.

5. I believe sharing our work with others in the class has impacted me along with everyone positively. Because of others corrections and suggestions my works got to become stronger and deeper.

I think sharing my project digitally gives access to everyone. It also teaches them about my topic. Creating digital projects can be hard because my paper has so much information that I cannot fit it into a digital project of any sort. There’s so much that it would be a long project to present and people would lose interest. Turning my project into something else besides a research paper has been hard because my topic is medical so I cannot really form something out of it, besides a poster or powerpoint. I can’t really take and make a hernia.

December 6, 2016 CSW Reflect

The CSW was alright. I wasn’t quite into the whole thing. My project turned out great, all my main points were shown on my poster. If I could prepare for it again, I would probably do a different topic. I realized many did not get interested because my topic was medically related compared to others. The CSW was jam packed and uncomfortable. There wasn’t really any room for anyone to set up nicely. I wish there would have been more room. I also realized that other classes were more organized; they all did group projects, or all had something similar. Some classes all researched the same project, or all did zenes or powerpoints etc. I wish things would have been more organized overall. I thought it was interesting but not really for me. My project didn’t catch many students eyes because it was about medical related stuff that they didn’t understand or were disgusted by it.
