â€œVictim, Creator, and Growthâ€
This week, you took the victim vs. creator assessment. For this assignment, you will make some important connections between information from this week and last week.
Address each of the following items in your paper:
1.Interpretation of victim/creator quiz results
a.In a paragraph of at least 250 words, share your results from the victim vs. creator assessment. Given these results, explain what that means about you and how you are likely to react in the face of a challenging situation. Why is your reaction important in a university setting?
2.Summary of Growth Mindset article
a.First, access our online library (EBSCOhost). In the search box, type Dweck growth mindset. Select one of the articles to read, and be sure to record the title of the article, author(s) and source. Second, summarize the main points of the article. Here is how you write a summary: after you read one paragraph, stop and jot down the â€œtake awayâ€ point from that passage. Then go on to the next paragraph. You must use your own words, you cannot copy the authorâ€™s wording. If your article is composed of 32 paragraphs, your summary will consists of 32 sentences.
3.Compare victim/creator with growth/fixed mindsets
a.In another paragraph of at least 250 words, compare the victim, creator and growth mindsets, using your own words and examples. How are they similar, and how do they differ?
4.Compare searches for sources
a.Last week, you searched the internet for an article about Dweckâ€™s growth mindset. Describe how many sources you found, and what kinds of sources they were (videos, books, articles, advertisements, etc.). This week, you only searched EBSCOhost for an article on Dweckâ€™s growth mindset. Discuss the results of this search â€“ how did you limit the search, how many sources did you find, and what kinds of sources were they?
This essay explores the Narrative Mode, which is perhaps the most natural style of writing for most people.
FOR THE STORY I AM A AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN IN HER 20’S LIVING IN FLORIDA
One of the goals of the narrative form is to allow readers to feel as if they are not simply reading someone else’s story, but that they are somehow part of it. Unlike simply telling a story though, a narrative essay has a specific piece of information to share, a lesson for the reader. There should be a clear reason for your telling the story. This is where the â€œessayâ€ in the narrative essay becomes apparent.
Your assignment this week is to write such an essay. Refer back to your outline of a significant event that you wrote for W2. Keep in mind that you are writing a story and it is important to freely tell your story. But, this is still an academic essay. The goal of your story is to support a clearly stated thesis/lesson for the reader. As such, your tale should be wrapped in a clear introduction and conclusion.
Your essay should contain the following basic features:
Â·An introduction with an attention grabbing opening (hook), a well-defined message or argument (thesis), and any background information the reader needs to fully understand your story;
Â·Body paragraphs which a tell the story of your clear and specific, singular event that illustrates the essay thesis;
Â·Vivid language that works to recreate the event, including descriptions of where the event took place, the people who were involved, and the things these people said and did;
Â·A conclusion that briefly implicitly or explicitly reviews your story, reiterates the lessons you learned and that you hope the reader to learn, and provides a closing thought such as
owhy this event is still personally significant,
othe state of your life since the event and how you feel about it,
ofuture plans related to the event,
orhetorical questions for the reader, etc.
In addition to the above, the final draft of your essay should be:
Â·From 250-500 words in length, typed in Times New Roman 12pt. font, double-spaced, with one-inch margins.
Â·Uses APA style (a title page and citations as needed which are modeled in your APA guide),
Â·Written in first person;
Â·Edited for spelling, mechanical, grammatical, and typing errors
