My name is Danny Yoder, I am twenty two years old and am originally from Cleveland Ohio. I am graduating from Bowling Green State University with a degree in Interpersonal Communication. After graduation I plan on traveling abroad to teach English in Japan for a year. I love music and the great outdoors. This portfolio is a representation of my personality and my work throughout the semester.
My portfolio is a collection of information, examples of work and writing skills I have developed in my English 207 class. This electronic portfolio was the most practical way to organize and store information about myself and my experiences in this class.
I appreciate the portfolio process because it has given me the opportunity to develope an awareness of my skills and gave me the ability to tell other people what I am good at and where I learned particular skills. This portfolio has assisted my goal setting skills and has helped me become more aware of my progress. By presenting this professional portfolio I can show others that I am prepared and capable. I honestly feel that the more time I put into it, the more this portfolio can do for me.
This portfolio consists of all the work I have done throughout this semester. I will provide a brief introduction to each assignment, explaining what the objective was wile interjecting my opinion of my work and the assignment in general. Along with my assighments I will add my revision reflections to the visual literacy narrative, and the rhetorical analysis. This portfolio is the culmination of the semester and it demonstrates everything I have learned.
This portfolio has given me the opportunity to reflect on how I have grown as a writer. I have developed a great understanding of what can be considered a literacy. I once thought that the term only applied to reading and writing.The opportunity to create and analyze a PSA gave me the chance to be creative and utilize the rhetorical appeals we learned about in class. What I enjoyed about all the assignments was that they aloud us to be creative and select topics that we were interested in. This really made the course fun, I hate it when I am forced to wright about something I could care less about. Overall I think that all of the objectives of the coarse were met through the various assignments and class dicustions.
This portflio has given me the opportunity to show how these assignments have helped fulfill the coarse objectives. One coarse objective was to understand how technology effects how we communicate. This objective was met in the assignments from unit one and two. Another objective of this coarse was to be able to synthesize knowledge from academia with are personal life. This objective was met by practically every assignment, especially those that asked us to reflect on are skills and experiences. My ability to adjust my writing to an audience was a clear objective in every assignment. I took the time before every assignment to recognize the audience and make the proper adjustments.
I invite you to look through my portfolio and read some of the work I have done this semester. I have put allot of time and effort into these assignments and this portfolio. I hope that you apreciate my work and I encourage any feedback you could give me. I hope that you enjoy!
