Added lines 1-5:
!!!Reflection
*What has been a specific piece of writing that you've encountered in Triad C that has resonated with you? This may be a piece of writing you read as you researched your rhetorical analysis, a primary source out of ''Contending Voices,'' or a piece of writing that Dr. Wooster or your seminar leader has discussed. WHY does this piece of writing stand out? How has it impacted you?
*Reflect on your writing processes for the rhetorical analysis. How many drafts did you compose? What was your revision process like? Were there times when you were blocked? What did you do to overcome this?
*How do you currently view yourself as a reader and a writer? Has has your perspective of yourself as a reader and a writer changed since you've been in Triad C?
