Core Value 1. My work demonstrates that I used a variety of social and interactive practices that involve recursive stages of exploration, discovery, conceptualization, and development.

Writing is an amazing art and truly a social process. I met up to this requirement by researching about my hypothesis or topic from one source to another. Also the edit suggestions about my work from peers and my professor. And all these stuff requires a lot of editing’s or else your readers would point out the mistakes and try to mess with your work. Same happened with my ‘Causal Argument’ paper I had to do lots of editing till the last minute just to make sure that my work is at its best. And as we all know that before the editing comes the writing part. I was very confused about my writing like where to start, the sources, ideas, etc. and the answer to all that confusion was, “research for sources.”


Core Value 2. My work demonstrates that I read critically, and that I placed texts into conversation with one another to create meaning by synthesizing ideas from various discourse communities. 

Reading is a most important part in writing. For writing something new and valuable it is necessary to read. Like I achieved this core value by reading an article by Milton Friedman’s “The Island of Stone Money”, carefully and consciously. And wrote a piece of writing of ‘Stone Money.’ For this I read the above article by Milton Friedman, NPR broadcast and various other sources on money and its evolution. And hence I combined the Milton Friedman’s article and NPR broadcasts into one conversation.


Core Value 3. My work demonstrates that I rhetorically analysed the purpose, audience, and contexts of my own writing and other texts and visual arguments.

The writing which justifies that I used core value 3 which is that I rhetorically analysed the purpose, audience and context of writing in the semester is through ‘Safer Saws’ assignment. For this assignment I read and looked at multiple sources for different views of different people and hence made different claims for the safer saws issue. And the articles consisted of the viewpoints of saw manufacturers, people who have used them, customers, etc. so for this I chose 5 sources which were: the article, “The Saw That Won’t Cut Off Your Fingers Has Arrived”, “10 amputations a day: the need for a safer table saw”, “Feds might force table-saw makers to adopt radically safer technology”, “STATEMENT OF CHAIRMAN INEZ M. TENENBAUM” and “Table Saw Injury Lawyer”. And due to many sources and article it gave me a broad and different objective of the argument. And also my professor showed us all video of grass’s technology safer stop.


Core Value 4: My work demonstrates that I have met the expectations of academic writing by locating, evaluating, and incorporating illustrations and evidence to support my own ideas and interpretations.

I have achieved core value by working on one of the assignments called as ‘Visual Rhetoric.’ According to this core value, we have to work on an assignment where we visually look at an video (without audio), analyse on our own what is happening, evaluating and hence writing it down for evidence. And this is all what we did in the ‘Visual Rhetoric’ assignment. And even we had to look and mention even the slightest detains of every second in the writing so that the viewers can imagine and understand the message in the video without the audio. Because unimportant details are by far very important.


Core Value 5. My work demonstrates that I respect my ethical responsibility to represent complex ideas fairly and to the sources of my information with appropriate citation. 

Another important part after writing is citing the sources which you have used for your writings. And that is the greatest ethical responsibility for an academic writing. And if you fail to do so then it might be considered that you might have copied it from somewhere and give it your own name and hence claim it that you have written it, but it was actually written by someone else. And this core value is achieved by writing ‘White Paper’ assignment. And my white paper meet all the requirements of the core value. It provides all the information about the sources which I have used for my research and briefly explains them also. And hence by that I meet the criteria of this core value.
