Midterm Self-Evaluation

12 Oct

The middle of the semester is the perfect time to consider where you are and where you’d like to end up. This is an opportunity to look back at your writing (tweets, freewrites, drafts, blog posts, etc.) and think about your participation in class and consider whether or not you’re meeting your own goals.

In a short reflective essay, posted to your freewrite journal, I’d like you to answer the following questions:

  • How do you feel about the quality of your work thus far?
  • How much of the work assigned have you completed? On time? Did you follow directions?
  • How do you feel about the writing that you’ve produced so far? What’s working? What’s not working? Why? Be specific!
  • If you had to give yourself an honest grade right now, what would you assign yourself? Why?
  • What’s your game plan for the rest of the semester?

You can answer the questions in any order that works for you, but you should answer them all. While there is no assigned page minimum, I can’t see it being possible to answer these questions in less than two pages. Personally, I believe it would take me about 3-4 pages.


And just a reminder, here is the some of the work that should have been completed by this point:

  • at least one conference
  • 5 major assignment drafts
  • 6 workshops
  • 8 mini assignments (tweets, comments, photo posts, etc.)
  • 10 freewrites
  • 3 research journals
  • 1 interview
  • fewer than 2 absences
