  • Reading and writing go hand-in-hand. Generally speaking, proficient students don’t read without writing, and don’t write without reading. The two processes although not the same are intertwined and in many ways dependent on the other.

    For this discussion, take time to consider how you feel about writing, what kind of writing do you do, and how you approach academic writing assignments.

    Directions

    1. Review “I Hate Writing”:
    2. Develop first in your Google Doc a discussion post that addresses:
      • How do you feel about writing? what do you enjoy? what do you hate?
      • What emotions surface when you are assigned academic writings for your classes?
      • What other types of writing do you do?
      • How would you describe your process of writing?
      • What did you think about the “I Hate Writing” video?
      • Do you agree or disagree with the claims made in the video “I Hate Writing”?
      • Did the video cause you to think differently about writing?
    3. Copy and paste your post in the discussion.
    4. Review your classmates’ posts.
    5. Respond to your classmates’ posts about how they feel about writing and whether there are similarities or differences with your views.
