Discussion Homework

In this unit’s reading, you explored the responsibilities and the habits of mind of effective academic writers:

  • In academic writing tasks, you are responsible for:
    • Defining a situation that calls for some response in writing;
    • Demonstrating the timeliness of your argument
    • Establishing a personal investment;
    • Appealing to readers whose minds you want to change by understanding what they think, believe, and value;
    • Supporting your arguments with good reasons;
    • Anticipate and address readers’ reasons for disagreeing with you, while encouraging them to adopt your position.
  • To be an effective academic writer, you must take on the right “habits of mind.” According to Greene and Lidinsky, academic writers:
    • Make inquiries–observe, ask questions, examine alternatives;
    • Seek and value complexity–resist binary thinking, consider all topics open for discussion;
    • See writing as a conversation–and demonstrate sensitivity to those involved in the conversation;
    • Understand that writing is a process–a continual process of discovering ideas, drafting, and revising; and
    • Reflect on their own learning and writing.

Make sure that your post does all of the following:
