Inventing the University

You will also be discussing various articles read in this unit including Bartholomae’s “Inventing the University” and make connections to your past expectations of academic writing. You will reflect on the academic expectations that you have experienced throughout your writing journey. In this essay, you will introduce yourself as a writer and tell me about your history with writing. Describe in detail various courses you have taken that included writing, topics that you covered in those courses, and what types of writing/assignments you have done in those courses. While much of your writing was probably done in English classes, do not limit yourself to just English classes; discuss other courses that involved writing too. Give me a thorough overview of your past with writing; this gives me context for your writing experience. Additionally, you must also discuss academic writing expectations according to the readings we have done in this unit. You must integrate all 3 readings from this unit; Irvin’s “What is Academic Writing?”, Zimmerman’s “Becoming a Self-Regulated Learner”, and Bartholomae’s “Inventing the University”. When integrating these texts discuss the academic expectations of members of the university based on the texts; be sure to include specific references and examples from all of the readings you are integrating. For example, if you mention a concept from “Inventing the University” consider finding a direct quote from the text to help support your discussion; this should be done for all 3 texts. Finally, you will work to connect your own experience to the discussion on academic writing expectations. Discuss how your past experience demonstrates the academic writing expectations from the readings you selected. For example, if a reading mentioned a strategy, learning method, skill, etc. that you have utilized or demonstrated in a past course you should discuss the example in detail. Also point to areas where you could have utilized the readings strategies, learning methods, skills, etc. in your past practices and experiences. Ultimately, you should be using these readings as a lens to look at and analyze your academic history for evidence of these academic writing expectations. Audience & Genre You should consider your primary audience as me; think of this as an introduction of yourself as a writer. Your secondary audience should be your classmates, as some of them will read your draft during peer response. The genre in which you should present this writing assignment is an essay.
