Project #65900 - Metacognition and Writing Identity

Project #3: “Cogito Ergo Sum(thing or Other)” (Metacognition and Writing Identity)

 

The Assignment:

In short, project 3 asks you to explore your identity/ies as a writer (remember that writing is a highly complex tasks that draws on many skills, habits, and beliefs!) by sorting through the complex idiosyncratic relationship among writing, thinking, and identity. To do this, you will turn your critical analysis skills inward to explore and reflect on a handful of factors that shape and influence you as a critical thinker, an active writer, and an individual.

 

Project Concepts: summary; synthesis; critical analysis; metacognition; identity exploration

 

To begin, you will need to collect some self-data to analyze. To assist in this process, you will take several online tests regarding religion, politics, thinking style, and personality (see below). Additionally, you will reflect on Kosta and Kallick’s 16 Habits of Mind, your personal core values, your experiences as a writer, and relevant personal milestones (positive or negative) to discuss your development as a thinker and writer. While you may find it useful to seek out additional sources to help you reflect on facets of your self, doing so is entirely optional. Finally, keep in mind that all evaluative tools and instruments have limitations; it is best to use them in a heuristic manner and approach them both openly and critically.

 

Tests to be taken: 16Personalities Personality Test, Human Metrics Jung Typology Test,

Think Watson My Thinking Styles Test, Beliefnet Belief-o-Matic Test, and Political Compass Test.

 

Worksheets to be completed: Habits of Mind, Personal Core Values, Habits of Mind + Personal Core Values Reflection, My Writerly Self: Reflection + Evaluation.

 

As stated previously, the online tests, Kosta and Kallick’s Habits of Mind, your personal core values, your experiences as a writer, and other personal milestones will create the body of self-data that you will explore and critically analyze using texts from the course.

 

Ultimately, you will write a 4 page critical reflection in which you

  1. contextualize/summarize (and briefly respond) to the self-data you collected;

    • What’d you do? What’d you find out?

  2. synthesize the results from from your self-data in order to come to several interesting personal insights about yourself as a critical thinker and writer;

    • For instance, the beginning of an interesting insight might start out like this: “I realized that my core values are at odds with my Habits of Mind, which was further reflected in how my religious and political beliefs do not always align. These conflicting stances…”

  3. use McRaney’s You are Not so Smart and Losh and Alexander’s “Issue 3: Writing Identities” as critical lenses to analyze and discuss your personal insights;
