Jounral

This week, you continue writing your journal entries. This journal is designed to give you practice in academic writing, which is very different from the personal essay writing that you have been practicing. Academic writing entails making a point and supporting that point with information from a reputable source. There are three ways to support a point with information from a source: quoting, paraphrasing, or summarizing. This week, you will practice paraphrasing a source and citing that source in your journal entry. Please be sure to read and review the ?Example Journal Entry ? Paraphrasing? document, which shows how quotations can be integrated.
Note: The journal assignment should not be confused with a personal journal. This activity requires organization, effective stylistics and grammar, and proper source incorporation. It is not a free-writing or reflective writing exercise.
Both of the personal essays we have read this week, ?How to Say Nothing in 500 Words? and ?Life Under the Chief Doublespeak Officer,? use narrative and/or descriptive elements (sections 6.3 and 6.4 in Essentials of College Writing, and each has a clear purpose.
Write about one of the essays assigned in this week?s readings. In 250 to 500 words

Explain why you think that descriptive writing pattern is used well by the writer. Incorporate a paraphrase from the essay and properly cite the essay.
Explain how you plan to use the same descriptive writing pattern in your personal essay.
As you are writing this journal entry, please pay attention to the areas that you struggled with in your ?Grammar Assessment? quiz and ?Practice Essay? assignment.

Describe a person, place, or object that has special meaning in your life.
Describe a particular moment or occurrence in your life that had special meaning to you.
Use the techniques described in sections 6.3 and 6.4 of Essentials of College Writing and expand upon the prewriting done in the discussion forum for the past three weeks to provide specific details about the person, place, object, or event so that readers can visualize the subject and/or feel present in the story. Your description should be specific and appeal to the five senses. Please be sure to read and review the ?Example Personal Essay ? Draft? document before beginning your draft for more guidance on writing a descriptive essay.
This rough draft needs to be at least 550 words, and it should have a thesis statement that clearly states what you are going to be writing about. View the sample Personal Essay ? Draft to guide you as you complete this assignment.
