Read Chapter 1, “Inside Colleges and Universities,” and Chapter 2, “Writing Process and Reflection,” in An Insider’s Guide to Academic Writing. Expand and revise your focused freewrite from the first day of class, placing information from the text into conversation with your own experiences and opinions. After reading about the conventions and processes of academic writing, how do you think the writing you’ll do for this class will compare to the writing you’ve done in other contexts? How might the assignments, expectations, and processes for college-level reading and writing overlap with or differ from your previous experiences with reading and writing? Reference at least one specific characteristic of academic reading and writing discussed in An Insider’s Guide to Academic Writing, and relate it to your own experiences. For example, you might consider how the text challenges your assumptions about academic writing or adds to your knowledge of literacy. Reflect on your writing processes and consider how they align or conflict with what the book has to say.
