Reread your first three papers, along with the instructor’s comments. Once you are done, write a “report” evaluating your portfolio and thinking about things you can do to improve. Try to give a thoughtful and honest assessment. Consider the following questions in making your self-evaluation: What have you learned in this class about college writing that differs from what you had thought or had learned before? What do you consider to be your greatest strength(s) as a writer? What things are you doing well? What are your weaknesses? What do you need to work on in future papers? Compare your weakest paper with your best paper so far. What things are you doing in your best paper that you were not doing in the weakest paper? What improvements have you made that will help you in future papers? What concrete steps do you think you can take to improve your performance in the future writing class? What class activities or exercises have been the most helpful in improving your writing? Can you suggest any activities you’d like us to engage in, or things you’d like us to do or cover in class? Is there anything you feel confused about and wish to be explained again? Are there any remarks the instructor has made in class or on your papers that you have not understood? Is there anything you’re concerned about as relates to the class? Using the vocabulary of the grading criteria, assess your writing in terms of your ability to articulate a thesis statement, work with texts and quotes, organize your ideas as well as use correct language and grammar. The paper should be three full pages.
