Controversial Issue Essay Reflection
The goals of this course are to teach students in speaking, listening, reading, and writing to prepare students to be college and career ready. I chose this project to be my best example because it shows my strength in writing. The goals for this project were to write a persuasive essay about a controversial issue, I chose gun control and wrote about how it is ineffective at solving the issue of gun violence and takes away the rights of law-abiding Americans in the process. The goal was to learn how to use MLA format to cite our sources, and for it to be at least 750 words long. The evidence that I achieved these goals were that I wrote a persuasive essay about a controversial issue, I used the MLA format, and it was over 750 words long. From doing this project I learned to use MLA format to cite sources and i got better at writing persuasive essays. At first I struggled with using the MLA format but I found out the right way to do it. My next steps would be to continue using MLA format and continue learning how to write good persuasive essays. In conclusion this is the best example of this course because it shows how I am good at writing. Two of the SLOs I demonstrated are Thinking Critically and Creatively, and Mastering Skills Needed in Career and College. I demonstrated these by thinking critically about gun control and learning how to write a persuasive essay and citing sources, which I will need in career and college.
