Metacognitive Reflections

A metacognitive reflection is meant to help you become more aware of the choices you make as a writer and the impacts of those choices on audience. Please read “Reporting and Reflecting on Your Project” in Writer/Designer (140–142) before beginning your reflection. Write a one page, single-spaced response (use section headers and paragraphs), addressing all of the following:

Assessment: 

  • What are you most satisfied with in your final draft? Why?
  • What are you least satisfied with in your final draft? Why?
  • Did you achieve your purpose? How do you know?
  • What did you learn about how to write effectively for your audience in a particular genre?
  • How did you balance using multiple elements such as text, images, graphs, charts, gestures, sound, voice, music, videos, time,  effectively to achieve your goals?

For Group Projects Only:  Discuss each group member’s biggest contribution to the writing process and the draft.  Make sure to state names.

Revisions:  Discuss how you used the feedback loop.

  • Who gave what feedback? Use names and be specific.
  • What feedback did you integrate and why?
  • Which did you decide not to integrate and why?
  • What else might you do if given more time to revise?

What You Learned about You: Take a minute to reflect on your work process.

  • What did you learn about the way you like to work?
  • What have you learned about yourself as a writer, researcher, maker?
  • What have you learned about collaborating with others?

Back to the Future: How might you use what you learned from this project in your other courses, your college career, you future profession, and/or your life outside of college/work?
