    • Drafting Unit Four Part One: Definition of “Good Writing”
    • Mini-Peer Review: Outlines
      • Are there enough subject headings?
      • Do the headings make sense?
      • Are they arranged in a logical order?
      • Are there enough scholars listed under each heading?
      • Does each heading have scholars from more than one unit?
      • Is the student making lots of connections--and not just the most obvious ones?
      • Are there connections between scholars that they could add?
    • Drafting
      • Choose a section heading to work on.
      • Write a topic sentence that gives an overview of the section.
      • Example: “A well-written paper is the product of a ‘g o od writer.’”
        • Section: “Good Writing” Comes from “Good” Writers
    • Drafting
      • Add evidence (from scholars)
        • Context:
          • “ A good writer is able to differentiate between the multiple ‘r u les’ and determine which rules to use and which rules to disregard.”
        • Evidence:
          • “ As Mike Rose explains, ‘b l ockers’ use the rules of writing as algorithms (229). Algorithms are rigid rules in which a specific input always has a specific output (Rose 222). Rose states that the ‘n o n-blockers’ used the rules of writing as heuristics, or guidelines (229).”
        • Analysis:
          • “ An efficient and good writer uses rules as heuristics because it allows them to throw out rules that don't apply to the specific situation.”
    • Drafting
      • Add more evidence. MAKE CONNECTIONS.
        • Context:
          • “ It is important to be able to determine which rules are functional and which rules aren't.”
        • Evidence:
          • “ Joseph M. Williams states that ‘We need not believe that just because a rule of grammar finds its way into some handbook of usage, we have to honor it’ (97). Williams defines four possible responses to discourse. Option one, a rule is violated and there is no response. Option two, a rule is not violated and there is no response. Option three, a rule is violated and there is a response. Finally, option four a rule is not violated and there is no response (96).”
        • Analysis:
          • “ The writing process is so complex that it cannot be broken down into one simple set of rules that must apply in every situation.”
    • Drafting
      • Keep adding evidence (context/evidence/analysis) until the end of the section.
      • At the end of the section, sum everything up and return to your argument.
        • Example: “A good writer must be able to consider all rules, determine which ones fit into their individual writing process and best convey their message to their intended audience.”
      • Repeat this entire process for each section.
    • Introduction
      • Use Swales again!
        • Establish territory
        • Establish niche
        • Occupy niche
      • Don’t forget this is a letter; it should start, “Dear Ms. Wayne,” or “Hey Ms. Wayne, what’s up?” or something comparable.
    • Establish your territory
      • Dear Ms. Wayne,
        • Good writing can be defined in many different ways. Over the last semester, I have been striving to find an answer to “w h at is good writing?" I have discovered that there are many correct answers to this question. Each person has a different answer based on their past experiences. A very common definition of good writing is “a well-structured essay with good grammar and spelling.”
      • (Hint: it might help you to look back at what you posted on Facebook at the beginning of the semester: what did you used to think good writing was?)
    • Establish and occupy your niche
      • However, I see these qualities as secondary.
      • To me, good writing is the ability to effectively communicate a point to the intended audience.
        • (might want to be more specific than this, especially if you have multiple subject headings)
