Review your reading about the writing situation, and write a 100-200 word essay-style response. Consider the following questions as a guide for constructing your response: What part of assessing the writing situation, finding your subject, defining your purpose, or considering your audience most stood out to you, and why? How do you think understanding the writing situation will help you in your writing for this course and beyond? Do you always consider all of these elements before writing? Why, or why not? How will this reading change how you approach assignments, if at all? How would you explain the writing situation and its importance to a fellow CSU student?
Your essay will also be graded on its development and completeness. Be sure that you revise and proofread your response. If you use outside sources, including your textbooks, you need to use quotation marks for lifted language, as well as in-text and reference list citations. If your essay is less than 100 words, you will not receive full credit.
