I haven't gotten my paper back. Has anyone else?
In my final paper, I will use many forms of genre conventions. My final paper will include no forms of "to be." I will use active verbs that will help me get my main points accross. Other mechanisms such will also help me convinve and pursuade in my final paper. My paper includes informative infomation that supports my reasonings for mandatory vaccinations. As a writer, I am more credible with the use of a variety of sources. I'm hoping to find more current information on my topic. I'm hoping that I can apply my topic to a wide audience in hopes of clarifying my points. Throughout my paper, I used the strongest and most valid points to make my arguments. Also, I was able to apply a creative reasoning and different forms of persuasion. The stucture and word choices I used for my paper allowed me to strategically convince and persuade.
Genre conventions that I will aim to adhere to are targeting the audience which shouldn't be too much of a challenge. The more engaged the reader is with the paper, the more positive they will feel about the paper. Relating things to the audience shouldn't be too hard since a lot of people are involved in my topic or have at least heard of it. Active voice will be vital in keeping the reader engaged so I plan to do that as well. I might go back and reword some things to try and use the kairos and chronos method of anticipation because I realized how good of a tool that is for convincing. Using those methods would be a good way to be creative in the paper because it would take some thinking from a different viewpoint. I really like it when you get your audience to think about things in a different way. Voice is extremely important in a paper because it determines how a reader feels as they read and its surprising how much a few sentences can change how the reader looks at other areas of the paper. It can be both good and bad depending how you use it. Overall you have to find a way to connect to your audience through voice, structure, how the paper is presented.
In our final paper there are many elements of diction genre. Some of these elements include using active voice no “to be”, having certain source and siting requirements, page requirements, being specific and fair to both sides while following a logical flow with arguments. I will be using genre in a social aspect to zone in on a particular audience; write how students would read my paper. My paper is on a newer scientific controversial topic so I have to use genre in science and show all the recent changing accomplishments in the field. Genre is very important to a paper, as Ms. Tshider said on Wednesday, genre is always linked to power, and as the writer of a convince and persuade paper we have all the power and genre in our hands.
The diction genre creates boundaries in writing such as no “to be” verbs, etc. In some senses the genre slightly pushes the writer to be creative with the paper by using active voice and getting all passive, commonly used words and sentences, out. From there, the writer has the structure of the paper set up from the genre and can be creative with that. Genre also includes visuals and diagrams. You can spice up the genre a bit by adding visuals the writer feels to be appropriate.
1. In the paper that I have been writing for the class, there are many different types of genres. The style that I use is informative and formal. The time of the paper is present. It consists of current issues today, two sided issues. The diction is formal in a sense that it follows MLA guidelines, but the paper is written informal for people who do not know much about the topic by reading my paper should be well informed. There are no forms of “to be”, which adds action to the paper. By not using forms of “to be”, the paper is more interesting to read.
This is important, because it sets the stage for the entire paper. Genres are the style of the paper. For example, whether the paper is formally written for students, or written for young children, would completely change the style of writing. The genres that I use in my paper are important because it follows a grading criteria. To write the paper well means a good grade.
2. I have always pushed boundaries to make anything creative. I like different. In this paper, I will follow the guidelines provided for me, but add personality. To do this, I will state my honest opinion in the most modest way, and try not to be offensive. I want this paper to be something that I am proud of, which means that I must work hard on the research so that I provide a legit paper that follows the guidelines, and is interesting.
When writing in the genre to inform convince and persuade structure, audience, and voice are all very important.
For a paper to be effectively informative, it should have a proper structure. This means being clear and orderly in what is written, if it is not written in a clear manner, the reader may not understand quite what is being discussed, and they will be improperly informed.
Considering your audience is key when writing a paper. Your audience will determine your style of writing, whether is aggressive, sympathetic ect. You must write to appeal to the certain audience. You want to appear to have credibility by being honest and ethical in what you are saying, an audience will not be properly persuaded if they that you are unethical in your means of persuasion.
The voice used when writing is another aspect to writing these papers that largely make a difference in how the paper will affect the reader. We want to eliminate passive voice so that the writing remains interesting and memorable. We want more action words so that the paper does not seem to pointlessly ‘drone on’.
I will attempt to make use of all these aspects of writing in my paper to make it a well-written and effective paper. I will attempt to keep my information organized and presented in a manner that has a good ‘flow’ and will make sense to the reader. I will also try to make sure to explain thoroughly any topic that may confuse the reader, so that they will have a full understanding of my issue. I will be sure to cite sources of information so the reader knows that the information is coming from a reliable source, and so that they know that I am a responsible writer by not taking credit for information that is not mine originally. I will also be sure to point out arguments from the opposite side of the topic, so that they are made aware of other points of view on the issue. I have done my best in my writing to eliminate passive voice so that my writing is more interesting and will hopefully captivate and hold the readers interest.
There are many genre conventions to which I will adhere. I will use formal diction because this is a formal paper. It also makes the paper sound more professional and does not speak down to the reader. I will use active voice in my paper because we are required to. Active voice tends to be more descriptive and flowing. I will use academic sources because that adds to the creditability of my paper. If I used bad or non-creditable sources then my paper would not be taken seriously. I will meet the page requirement because I would like full credit. I have written both the history and the controversy already. The history has been written first to inform the reader about the issue. Then both sides of the controversy are presented. Both sides are equally presented so we don’t short change the reader and they are fully aware of the issues and arguments on both sides of the controversy. The next step is to convince the reader to that the side you are arguing for is correct and something should be done. This is done because you must convince your reader before you persuade them. It is unethical to persuade before you have convinced. I will also use the sandwich method with my quotes to fully inform the reader of the meaning and the creditability of the quote. It is important to sandwich your quotes because they should not stand-alone and they must be interpreted so the reader clearly understands what you interpreted the quote to mean. I am presenting both sides of the controversy because it is unethical to argue one side when the reader is not fully informed about the other side. I am also using specific arguments and examples in my paper to clearly show the reader my point. I am also using logical flow in my paper to create a flow. It is hard to follow a paper that jumps around from one topic to the next, so I am writing mine so the reader can follow the topics. If you confuse your reader you are not going to convince them, they will just be left confused.
I will try to adhere to many genres in my paper. I will try to eliminate all of the passive voice throughout my paper. This means I will be trying to use all active voice. This will help me as a writer to be more persuasive and have more meaning behind my words. It will increase the power that I can add to my paper as well. I could also write more for my audience. This would make the paper seem more interesting. It would also make the reader want to understand where I am coming from with the points I have made. I could also refurbish my diction. I could make the paper easier to understand; so all audiences could read it. This would increase the knowledge of the younger generations about my topic. Another thing that I could do would be to put more logic in my paper. This will make it so everyone can understand my exact train of thought. Then, the audience will know where I am coming from in the decisions that I make about my paper.
I can also be inventive and creative within the bounds that I have set for myself. I can think up new ideas about the moral and ethics behind what is already stated. I can also use pictures to invoke other’s imaginations more clearly. By making the reader more interested in my paper by using these ideas, I can make my paper more understood and wanted by the readers. This would enhance the overall experience of reading my paper.
1. There are many various genre conventions to which I will adhere. All of these genres are important to writing a successful paper. One of these genres is writing in active voice. Writing in active voice is important because it makes your paper sound better. It is also important to my paper because if I don’t write in active voice I will end up with a lower grade. Another genre is writing a paper arguing for a specific side of a controversy. It is important to write a paper arguing for a specific side, because this is more credible that say writing a novel with one of the themes having to do with the controversy. Another genre is that I am using quotations and visuals from other more credible people to make my paper more credible. These sources are important because without them all your information would be speculations that you made and you don’t know anything so it is better to use credible sources to give you information. Another genre is that I wrote a history for both sides of the argument before I argued or convinced or persuaded. This is important to give the readers a background on the topic and the arguments for it before you start hitting them with all the persuasiveness of your paper.
2. To write a successful paper you must also be creative in your method of persuasion. One way I will be creative is to use creative sources, like charts or pictures having something to do with my controversy. Also, I will come up with new and inventive arguments for my old and dull controversy. Maybe I will throw in a story to make it exciting.
I will try and include genres throughout my paper. These genres will be writing style and form, formal voice eliminating the passive voices in my paper, persuasion, and diction. Style will be written according to my audience and how I see fit on how much education and knowledge they have on the subject, I will fill them in with history and information about my topic first and then persuade them with facts. This way my paper will be easier to read and understand. Active voice will be used without passive voices or forms of “to be” to make my paper sound more credible and believable. Active voice will also bring my reader in and make the paper more interesting to sit down and read the whole entire paper instead of being bored and quit reading the paper I wrote using passive voice. Persuasion will include history that I pointed out in the “debriefing” part of my paper and use information that counteracts the other side’s opposition.
I will be creative in the fact, I will include pictures of what I am trying to prove and state in my paper to help my persuasion. I will include stories to touch the reader’s lives to set an emotional appeal throughout my paper. My paper will be fun and exciting to read but yet easy and hard on the issues at hand at the same time. I think having an exciting paper will make the reader want to read it as well as enjoy reading it. Using active voice and including ethos, pathos and logos throughout the paper as well will fulfill the requirements of bring my reader in.
Some of the genre that I have adhered to is active voice, no forms of “to be”. Also source requirements, using sources, and citing your sources. Another is the page requirement of 16 pages. Organization, starting with history and using sandwich method. Formal paper, no contractions such as “don’t”. Being fair to both side of the controversy. And logical flow, premises. These are important to writing our paper since it gives use structure. The genre sets the time period and style for the paper. It develops the social aspects.
Within these bonds of writing there is still a lot of room to be inventive and creative. I was able to up with a controversy of choice. I choose what I wanted to argue for and against. I choose the arguments I wanted to use. And I was able to search for the sources I wanted to back my arguments. There is a lot of flexibility within the requirements to make your paper our own, the requirements just sets up the structure and flow of your paper. Within the structure and flow your paper is your own.
There are many different genre conventions to which I will adhere to in my paper. Our paper has many different elements of genre, many of which I have used in my own paper. Even though I am adhering to these conventions, I am still able to be creative.
One of these major elements includes using a two-sided argument. It is necessary in our paper to use an argument that has two distinct sides and to argue both sides. I have done this because my topic is file-sharing, and the two different sides include people who approve of file-sharing, and those who think that it should stay illegal and have consequences.
Another important aspect in our genre includes the type of writing. For example, these include the formal diction, having logical flow, and using the sandwich method. I haven’t looked too much into the formal diction, so I am not sure how much I am adhering to this aspect. However, I believe that I have used logical flow and the sandwich method throughout my paper. Sometimes I have trouble organizing my paper to make it flow and I have tried to successfully make my paper logical. By using the sandwich method, I introduce what I’m going to say, I say it, and then I interpret it, and transition into my next point.
These aspects are important in our papers because if you are going to accurately persuade people, there needs to be organization. Using a two-sided argument makes it easy on the reader and makes it easier to understand what is going on when there are only two sides. Also, it makes you more credible and they are more likely to be persuaded when you use formal diction and have logical flow. Also, by using the sandwich method, the reader can fully understand what you’re trying to say.
There are many different ways to be creative, despite these boundries. While I need to use a two-sided argument, there are many different arguments out there, and this convention of genre was not limiting at all. Also, by needing to use active voice and formal diction, it can push the writer to use more active verbs. This way, the writing seems much more creative because the writing has a larger variety in vocabulary. When using a logical flow and the sandwich method, it is only restricting in the set up of the writing, and not restricting in the content. Because of this, it leaves open many areas of creativity so that you can write about whatever you want within that guided outline.
In my paper for genres I will include style, register/diction, structure/forum, active voice, persuasion, audience and others. For style I will choose one that fits my selected audience and that makes me sound credible and present my information in a manner that will be regarded with respect. Register/diction will be presented in a way that makes it easy for my audience to follow but not make them feel as if they do not know what is going on. For structure/forum I will right so that the structure is in a paper format in a way that is logical and something that will be easily followed. I will write in active voice to make myself sound like I really know what I’m talking about and try to pull the reader in by using powerful language and writing techniques. I will also use my writing to persuade people to believe in what I have to say in a way that is not forceful but still pulls them in. Also I will write to an audience that has some idea of what previous arguments but yet is still searching for more. Writing to a specific audience will help me shape my paper. Also this will help me to better get a feel for my writing because it will have a specific purpose and will allow me to be more creative and insightful when I write.
I will be inventive and creative with in my paper by having fun with writing it. When I am writing to an audience I can write like I am talking to them trying to pull them into what I have to say. Having fun and being creative with the writing will help me write a paper that looks and sounds better when read. Being creative is a little harder in a paper like this because it a little more serious. To be creative takes some work but is achievable. What I have to do is find stories and quotes that will fit into my paper and be prime examples for my arguments. I will try to make them as compelling as possible so I can take hold of the reader and hopefully have them switch to my side w/out any doubt. Being inventive might even be harder then being creative. Yet to be creative I will have to be inventive at the same time. If my opponent has an argument that is hard to argue against I will have to come up with a way to argue it with an argument that isn’t quite as strong. When doing that I will have to choose my words carefully and by language selection I will be able to sound more knowledgeable then my opponent and produce an argument that sounds better.
My paper on same-sex marriages includes an informative and persuasive style. I tried to persuade my audience in being for same-sex marriages and I still have to persuade a little more in the additional two pages. It is important because I will try to persuade my audience to do something about the inequality between homosexuals and heterosexuals. I first stated the points on homosexual relationships in the past. My paper is currently at the present time. It is in the present time because same-sex marriages are not allowed in any state, yes there are civil unions but no one living in the United States have the right to marry there lover of the same-sex. I tried to used active voice throughout my paper, but yet there still might be a little passive voice in my paper, I will try and correct that for my final draft. Throughout my paper I tried to avoid the contractions, and I think I might have done a good job with that but that is about it. In my paper, I am going to try and connect my visuals into the body of my text, and refer to the picture that are located in the appendix. I want to try and find more visuals that are meaningful to my paper. I think I might have used a little too many quotes from the authors I used, I need to read my paper over and over to get things out of my paper that I do not need. All of these items are important because they make a better paper overall. In the paper we have been writing there were certain paper requirements, and I had a little trouble meeting them with my history, so I have to go back and add more history so I can have the right amount of page numbers.
How will I be inventive and creative within these bounds is a good question. I will try to do something unique that no one has done. I want to find really good visuals to relate into my paper. Maybe a unique way of something would be to describe a certain situation I have been in related to my topic. Maybe I can take a poll around campus or around my dorm and see how many people are for and against same-sex marriages and if they would do anything to help push the government in allowing same-sex marriages. I guess I need to brainstorm a little more on everything. But one thing I do have to mention is that I am so happy this is my last writing assignment.
I was just remembering that someone had talked about they might be a UMN Cheerleader but wasnt sure if they were going to try out. I was wondering did you do it? If you dont want to tell that is ok I just thought I would ask.
The genres that I will adhere to in this paper are things like page requirement, topic of a controversy, and an attempt to write in an active voice. I think the biggest genre that I will follow is the general structure of the paper, formatted through premises. I will attempt to adhere to all these requirements that are given to me by the teacher as means to follow instruction and the outline requirements of the paper. These genres are important first off because I will be graded on my ability to adhere to these genres, further motivating me to follow these genres. These genres are also important as means to write a thro and convincing paper. I think that the genres are enough so that there are certain guidelines provided however, I think they leave room for creativity. One way that I will be creative in these boundaries is by first choosing a topic of my own personal interest or one which I an interested in studying. I think once again the boundaries are open in deciding what side you lay on, whether it is for or against your controversy. In deciding your position, I think that you get the ultimate creativity in deciding how your paper is going to be received, what points you want to stress, and what side you want to convince your audience of. I think just some general genres on what the paper is required to do, is essential in getting across the type of paper one wants to read. I hope to fulfill all these genre requirements in my paper while being creative and persuasive with in these boundaries.
I dont know if I like the snow outside or not. There isnt really all that much to go sledding or anything like that. But it does look nice or at least better then dead grass. All I know is that I not really ready for Christmas but I am ready for our break and as long as it stays warm I will be ok. What do you all think of the snow? Are you ready for Christmas
The genre we follow for this paper has some specific guidelines to which we must adhere. For instance, one of the key requirements is length. Our paper is to be sixteen pages in length. This requirement is actually important, while the paper may seem extremely long at first I found that over time the requirement is not extensive. I do not believe that I could properly make my case with enough information to be persuasive in anything less than sixteen pages. Another important genre convention we follow is the use of active voice. The active voice really enhances a paper. It was difficult for me to get used to using active voice, but I realize that my paper does sound much better with that form in place. Along with that active voice we follow another genre convention in the general way the paper is written. Keeping in mind audience is a key to a successful paper. In this project I am writing to my peers who are educated but may be unfamiliar with the topic. By keeping this in mind as well as my genre convention I believe that my paper sounds intelligent but also understandable. My genre would change if I were writing to a group of scientists or experts in the field. I believe that this is the most important part of genre. No matter how good a paper may be, if it is not written with the audience in mind it will not be a successful piece.
While there are several restrictions that keep my paper with the genre mentioned above, I have found ways to make my paper unique. I have included headings in my paper that help to divide it in the way that I feel will be most influential. In addition I have displayed my creativity in my writing. For instance I have used a person experience to help illustrate one of my main arguments. This personal account gives my paper its own identity while staying within my genre boundaries. Lastly, I have included photos as part of my paper. These pictures allow me to make points more poignant while maintaining the formalities of the genre. By using several small things to enhance my paper I believe that my creativity shines through.
There are a lot of genre specifics that I’ve thought about while writing my paper. The major thing that I’ve been concerned with is active voice. Sometimes I read my paper specifically to find all of the passive voice and try to take it out. This is important because active voice is much more persuasive, descriptive, and direct. The other major type of genre that I will use is a specific style. When talking about animals it is very important to say things in a specific way. For example, it’s really important to use the right kinds of words when talking about animals that are abused. When being persuasive, you want to use powerful language without embellishing so much that the audience doesn’t think you’re telling the truth. Since many people in the United States go to the circus, I had to be careful about what I said about people who support the circus. My paper is very audience-specific. It is geared toward the common public who has seen many animals in the circus without giving it a second thought.
I think that my paper is the most persuasive by how I organize it. For example, first describing how cute and innocent animals are and then describing how miserable their lives are. I tried to do this to catch people into feeling very badly for the animals. I also think that my visual aids will be very persuasive. They say a lot in a way that everyone understands them. Creativity with the active voice worked to my advantage.
It forced me to think of new vocabulary and even though it took a long time to revise some of the sentences, at the end the sentences were much more powerful. I also learned new forms of sentence structure that put variety into my paper. This will keep the audiences attention and make them think about every single sentence. I think that every sentence has a specific impact and is important to my paper. By making every sentence unique, it makes every sentence stand out more by itself.
1. Obviously this paper is going to be in a convincing or persuading style. Another feature of this genre will be that it is a current event in the sense that it is a topic of debate currently affecting politics in our country. The paper will be structured in a way to inform the reader of the topic, then gradually try to convince them that same-sex marriage should be allowed. Because the paper is very long, it will also utilize transitions, citations, and quotations in order to properly support my opinion of the topic. This will also help make my opinion credible and therefore, something the reader could actually agree with. The most important thing is I want to persuade the reader to believe my side of the argument so any facts, quotations, or other useful things will come in handy.
2. In order to be creative, I want to be able to pull examples from real life of people dealing with this issue. I want to point out how not being able to get married because they are gay will affect them financially and why it's wrong to prevent them from getting married. I think statistics are huge in supporting an argument and statistics on how much financial gain there is by being married would be a nice way to convince the reader that preventing gay marriage is wrong and goes against our constitutional right as Americans to have equal rights for everyone. When people get married, there are tax benefits, shared medical insurance, social security benefits, the right to inheritance in case of death, sick leave from work, military leave, and other benefits that gay couples are not able to receive. I don't find that to be fair so I want to convince the readers that it is wrong to single out the gay community with this law.
Final Blog Paper
Some of the genres that I plan to try my best to follow with include: page requirement, the number of sources, general writing style, putting in a story, and having the arguments of both sides. I plan on try to do my best to write or add two more pages to finish with 16 pages this will help to make sure I have all the right information in it. Also with having the right number of sources I will have enough information. With the writing style I need to follow this to allow the paper to flow. I also will try putting in a story about two children one that drank milk and one that didn’t. This will give the reader an personal touch on the paper. Finally, by having the arguments of both sides I will allow the reader to know both sides before I persuade them to my side. I am also trying to follow these genres so that I can do good in this class and get a good grade. One genre that I am trying to follow but is very hard for me and I am not doing a very good job at is not having forms of “to be” in my paper. I am going to work on it more but it is very hard for me.
I will try to make my story be interesting and emotional to some point so the reader wants to go on and continue reading. I also will try to make the paper flow well to allow easy reading and so all the points are across. I don’t really know how else I will be creative with these different genres.
Hey guys we are to the weekend yay, i found the best visual i could possibly find but it is a interactive video on cnn.com so any ideas on how to use that? thanks
I sent my paper into the writing center, and I got it back. There are alot of helpful ideas how to improve my paper. If anyone is planning on sending there paper in I would send it asap because they take a while to get it back.
I'm so stress right now. I have a math and a chem exam tommorw. I still don't understand some of the material. Anyone else feeling stressed out?
So our paper is due really soon and now I'm starting to get a little nervous. I remember how far away it seemed in the beginning of the semester. Is anyone else feeling the same way?
I wasn't able to make it to class today, and I was just wondering if anyone could fill me in on what we did and if I missed anything. Thanks a bunch
